Book Review: He Will Be My Ruin

Twenty-eight-year-old Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a bottle of Xanax and a handle of Maker’s Mark, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers secrets in the childhood lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man who Celine herself claimed would be her ruin.
On the hunt for answers that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

My Thoughts:

This is a book that I've been wanting to read for a while, and I'm so glad it was my first book of the year. What a great way to start of my 2017 goodreads reading challenge!

From page 1, you know that the mystery of Celine's death is not black and white.  It is a whole lot of gray area that only one person knows the answer to.  As Maggie sleuths to uncover the truth, she finds out a lot of things that she never would have found out if Celine were still alive.  I thought the way the story and all of the details of Maggie and Celine's lives  unfolded was very well done and interesting.

All in all, I thought this was a fantastic mystery/thriller that kept me guessing the entire time. It even had some sexiness to it that kept the romance fan in me quite happy. Haha!

If you've never read anything by K.A. Tucker before, this would be an awesome book to start with.  I love her Ten Tiny Breaths series and look forward to reading more of this kind of novel from her in the future, if she releases more!

Take care,
