What do you get when you combine the heiress to The Sanka House, the finest wine in all of Europe, and a few dead bodies? Well you get Semya Slotin of course!
Semya is an enigma, her best friend is a Russian mob princess, her boyfriend of almost 4 years is absolute mystery to her, and she likes to play Nancy Drew more often than she probably should.
Bird of Prey takes the reader on a roller coaster of sex, lies, betrayal, and murder. The sex scenes are steamy without being tacky, the investigation will keep the reader on their toes as they try to follow Semya's boards and ways of thinking. The ending of the case will more than likely catch the reader off guard. The ending sets it up beautifully for "The Plot Thickens" which is the second book in the series releasing next month.
I don't normally mention errors when it comes to an ARC, but there was one error that repeated itself in every instance, so I'm not sure if the author was even aware it was an error at all, nor do I know if it was caught and corrected before the book was released. I do hope it was.
For the American readers who complain and cry errors in pretty much all UK books, other than the one repeated error, there are no others, at least none as obvious as that one is.
The storyline is beautiful and it flows wonderfully. Though, I do hope the author will grace her fans with the case from fifteen years prior to this one, about Semya's step father, when she met Heinz. I think that story would make a great prequel to the series.
Either way, I look forward to The Plot Thickens and do hope I'll get the chance to review it as I did this one.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws
