Water's Edge (Detective Megan Carpenter Book 2) by Gregg Olsen

In the beginning of Water's Edge, I really loved Megan's sarcasm and demeanor, but then it got tiresome, and some of the male characters came across like 1970s character cutouts and not likable. It also found myself tiring on the character interactions around the 55% mark and just wanted the story to end. It seemed like the storyline plodded along to get to the exciting ending, but I did find myself not caring who the killer could be.

I felt like the author was hitting me over the head that the main character, Megan, had issues with her brother and also that she had an eidetic memory and did not need to write things down to remember details.

I also did not enjoy the main character revealing her life story through tapes she had of her therapy sessions. It disrupted the flow of the mystery for me.

I've read other Gregg Olsen books and have enjoyed his other series. I will read more of his work, but Water's Edge missed the mark for me.

Until next time, happy reading, and have a wonderful day.
