The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka

This mystery is character-driven and engaging from the very start. Roxane’s grit charmed me from the get go. She is a bit of a mess, grieving the recent loss of her father – a cop – and given that their relationship wasn’t the easiest, she isn’t really coping well. When she is contacted by Brad’s sister she finds herself drawn to the girl’s small town, and Roxane soon begins to wonder wherever the case is bigger than she’d imagined. We follow both Roxane’s investigations and her private life. Her character is the true force of the story, her imperfect methods and headstrong personality make the novel truly captivating. There is a focus on her actions that makes the story feel fast-paced rather than rushed. The dialogues, various scenarios and characters all feel incredibly believable and realistic. I hope we will have more of Roxane!

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
