“Where? where?” says Goody Blaire;
“Down the town,” said Goody Brown;
“I’ll go and see’t!” said Goody Fleet;
“So will I,” said Goody Fry.
But is he the pyromaniacal killer that he writes in his books?
Lisa, Reece’s ex-wife and current girlfriend, thinks he’s fine, but she’s not really letting him into the lives of her or their daughter. The daughter who says she doesn’t really belong to Reece.
David, the man Lisa lived with the entire time she and Reece were apart, thinks Reece belongs back in the institute.
The jealousy. The rage. The crazy.
It was gone. It was manageable. Before Lisa came back. Now it’s starting again. Is he crazy? Or is something more sinister going on?
I work at Partners In Crime Virtual Book Tours and rarely review books for their tours as it could appear to be a conflict of interest. However, we’ve been working with Vincent Zandri for years now & I’ve never read one of his books. (Partially, because just the synopsis, covers, & titles freak me out a bit.) I mentioned that one day when we were talking and a few hours later he’d gifted me the book with a note to enjoy it and if I loved it to review it.
Well, he’s become a friend so I waited until a night when I didn’t have to get up early the next morning (who knew how long it would take me to get to sleep if I was scared witless) and started reading, until I fell asleep with the book pressed to my nose.
What I liked: First, while this book is scary, it’s a mind thing and not a chest clenching keep you up at night kind of scary. Everything Burns is a good book with a great mystery that has you wondering at every turn who the culprit really is – and, just when you think you’ve figured it out the next sentence will have you back to guessing.
Second, I loved how every sentence, every phrase, every word brought the reader back to fire. Not in a way that is corny or uncomfortable. Each of these characters has been affected and shaped by fire and it shows in their every thought and word.
Third, I can say that I’m going to have to read more Zandri! I absolutely did not like Reece, yet, I could not put the book down nor stop rooting for him. That’s the mark of an AMAZING writer!
What I didn’t like: There is more cursing in the book than I felt was necessary but, it wasn’t excessive.
