Book Review ~ She Lies in Wait by Gytha Lodge

She Lies in Wait (DCI Jonah Sheens, #1)She Lies in Wait by Gytha Lodge

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A young girl at the campgrounds with her family, trying to stay hidden because her dad keeps hollering for her to come on, don't get dirty, stay out of this or that, nagging. Trying her best not to be seen she climbs into the hollow part of an old tree, ends up getting her shorts snagged as she sits down into hollowed out part, something starts poking at her leg, she assumes it's the tree roots until she looks down and finds a human finger in her hands. BAM! DCI Jonah Sheens has himself a crime scene.

I really wanted to like this this book so bad. When I read the synopsis, I thought man this is going to be a great read. It felt like 30 years reading this book to get to the end. I am sorry, I was just not connecting with any particular character accept for hearing from the victim herself, as to what she seen happening those 30 some years ago when they were all drinking and partying at their campground.

Thank you Netgalley and Random House Publishing for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
