The Redwood Con by Reagan Keeter
Publication Date: May 5th 2020
After a divorced Chicago father is charged with killing his girlfriend and unexplainable secrets about her come to light, he’ll have to figure out how much he’s willing to risk to find out the truth . . . and how much of it he wants to know.
Liam Parker finds his girlfriend, Elise, dead in the bathtub, wrists cut. Suicide, he figures. But the truth turns out to be more complex than anyone might expect. While trying to clear his name, Liam uncovers clues that suggest Elise was not who he thought she was: she was living under an alias, has a record, and lied about where she worked and where she grew up.
Making matters worse, his relationship with her has tied his fate to those of a conman and a stock broker, neither of whom he has ever met. And as these three men’s lives hurl unexpectedly toward each other, Liam learns he’ll have to do more than just prove he’s innocent—he’ll have to unravel a mystery that threatens to destroy everything he cares about.
The Redwood Con is the kind of thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Overall, I thought this book was really good. The characters were very well developed and I was able to vividly picture everything that was going on. So some parts of this book did seem to move along a little slowly, but the overall pace of the book was good and didn’t rush into anything. The one and only thing that really bugged me about this book was that it had so many points of view. I was often confused on who I was reading and often had to go back and re-read paragraphs or sentences to remind myself which person we were on. I always enjoy dual points of view, but when it becomes any more than three for me personally it gets a little too confusing. Other than that, I thought this book was very well thought out. It had great characters and really left me wanting more each chapter. It was a solid read that had lots of twists and turns and that kept me on my toes.
I received an eARC of this book in exchange for a review!
