Victoria begins to see the dead at an incredibly young age and it both shocks and consumes her. Rightfully so, her brother, the only person that knows about her secret, nicknames her “Crowe” when she decides that she will use it for good by becoming a Homicide Detective. At the age of eight, she meets her favorite dead person, Miss Agnes. Miss Agnes sticks around well into Victoria’s adulthood – becoming one of her best friends. One night, Miss Agnes finally tells her daunting story and as more clues unravel about her death, she goes missing. Victoria is riddled with confusion and must solve her biggest case yet: where is Miss Agnes and why did she go missing.
This isn’t my usual genre, but the storyline captured my attention from the beginning and I was hooked until the end. There was a lot going on, it was easy to get lost in the pages, because there were so many series of events. At first, it was hard to make sense of what was happening, but the author did a great job tying this story together and at the end the pieces fell into place.
There was a bit of romance here, but I wanted more! There was so much sexual tension between Tori and Hunter and I was waiting for the moment when it would be like “okay professional stuff to the side, what’s really good”. We got the peeks into what could be, but nothing all the way. Which was okay, because it didn’t take away from the story.
This was my first read from this author and I’d be interested in seeing what else she can do. The creativity she showed with this body of work was a beauty. I truly didn’t know what to expect from the storyline, but was happy with the outcome.
I received an ARC of Miss Agnes is Missing from Literary Designs.
