Genre: Mystery, Oak Knoll Series #2
Personal Rating: 3.25/5 (just okay +)
Format/Narrator: Audiobook/Kirsten Potter
Yearly Count: 77
Set in 1986, a murdered mother and her gravely injured 4-year old daughter were found in their home in Oak Knoll. A detective and a former FBI profiler take on the case.
I was a bit disappointed in this second book of the series. It was good at times, but others not-so-much. Having children play an important role in a plot is tricky, and I didn't like how the children were portrayed in this one. Also, being that it was audio, I didn't care for hearing the narration of the children either.
There were other characters that I felt didn't move the story along, but ultimately the plot was somewhat interesting. Figuring out who-dun-it in the late 80s with no computers or cell phones needs to be more than "somewhat interesting" to keep me reading the series. I'm a little concerned about attempting #3.
