Jess's Review ~ Stain: A Romantic Psychological Suspense by Mindy Hayes

Stain: A Romantic Psychological Suspense My rating: 4 of 5 stars


You know it's a good one when you say "What the f*ck!" out-loud while you are reading.

This is my first book by this author but this twisted/suspenseful type of book it right up my alley. We have the Hollywood sweetheart, the journalist, the rock-star and a murder, what could possibly go wrong? When lives become entwined and the past comes barreling back into the present you end up with a twisted mystery that left me guessing.

Katarina is a reclusive journalist. She has demons in her closet and under her bed and in her head. Time has broken her but perhaps the story that ends up on her doorstep will help put her back together. Blake shows up on her door-step when his life turns to shambles. They share a past but have a murder to figure out first. Blake is in a precarious situation and as his story unfolds a whole host of emotions in me run rampant. Last we have the dead Hollywood star, whom I had very strong feelings about. And because of these strong feelings, the "whodunnit" was even more interesting, because I some point I wanted to be the one who did it.

This was a well-plotted tale that kept you guessing with a couple of WTF moments. There were a couple of things that I felt were a bit too much and it wasn't quite as dark and dangerous as I wanted it to be. But overall I really enjoyed this story and I love discovering new authors.
