Top critical review
I prefer female protagonists with brains & common sense
Reviewed in the United States on December 10, 2021
Another quick read in the Krewe series with a more convoluted plot than usual due to arson and other crimes committed ten years apart. This book has a lot of secondary characters and thus, more red herrings. Also, there is more romance and sex in “Unknown” compared to other Krewe books that I’ve read.
When reading crime fiction—even romances masquerading as such—I would like protagonists I can root for, not one who makes me roll my eyes. At first I thought that Sienna Murray, the female protagonist and ghost-seer, was only naive. However, by 30% into the book, she is willingly, stubbornly, and annoyingly naive. How many times do FBI agents have to say: “YOU ARE IN DANGER.” I’d like a female protagonist with intelligence, logic, and common sense, please.
3.5 stars but not 4 stars.
