(Bobbi Logan Crime Novel #3)
by Renee James
I received Seven Suspects as an ARC from NetGalley.
I had no idea that this was book 3 in a series, had there been something stating that I may not have requested it. Some books you can jump into the middle of a series but this did make me feel more than a little lost! There has obviously been a lot happen to Bobbie in the previous books that I really feel I need to know in order to better understand the dynamics of this one.
That being said it is clear that Bobbie is a strong, fighting female character who has endured so much to get to where she is today – transition from male to female is hard enough for her but add a rape into the mix, I just cant imagine how she copes with the day to day prejudices that are thrown her way – the constant name calling, side-way looks etc
This is quite a dark read in some parts and once I got going I could not put it down. Bobbie had the feeling that she is being watched/followed which brings back the events of her rape back to the forefront of her mind. Is it someone connected to that who is following her? With the help of her ex-boyfriend & detective Phil she gets to the bottom of it all.
The ending was a little gritty but also very fitting for the story,
Trigger warnings: violence, rape
