Review ~*~ Tin God by Stacy Green

Blurb ~*~
Getting pregnant as a teenager and being coerced into giving her baby up for adoption left a festering scar on Jaymee Ballard’s life. Trapped by poverty and without many allies, Jaymee nearly gives up hope of getting her daughter back after her best friend is murdered. Now, four years later, a wealthy woman with legal connections hires her as a housekeeper, and Jaymee gathers the courage to seek her help. But Jaymee’s last chance ends up in a puddle of blood in one of the historic antebellum mansions in Roselea, Mississippi.

I just murdered your wife...again.

An unsigned letter consisting of six horrifying words turns Nick Samuels stagnant life upside down. Stuck in emotional purgatory since his wife’s unsolved murder four years ago, Nick is about to self-destruct. The arrival of the letter claiming credit for his wife’s murder and boasting of a new kill sends Nick to Roselea, where he and Jaymee’s worlds collide.

Jaymee and Nick realize exposing the truth about her daughter’s adoption is the only way to solve the murders. Up against years of deception, they rush to identify the killer before the evidence–and Jaymee’s daughter–are lost.

But the truth doesn’t always set the guilt-ridden free. Sometimes, it destroys them.

Review ~*~
     Tin God is a fascinating quick paced story that grips you quickly and doesn't let you go even after it's over.  Stacy Green weaves a sinister tale that has enough twists and turns to make your head spin.  She will take you on a wild ride of corruption, illegal adoption, murder, and much more.
    As a young girl, Jaymee was forced to give up her daughter for adoption.  But the guilt has eaten away at her for years. As she tries to find clues about her daughter people start ending up murdered.  Now Jaymee will learn that things aren't always what they seem, especially in a small town.
   Nick gets an unsigned letter about a murder that has been committed and is eerily similar to that of his deceased wife.  With her murderer still on the loose, Nick now has a new lead and he is determined to find her killer and the killer of this new woman.  But he doesn't expect to be pulled into Jaymee's life and the small town drama that will follow.
      Tin God is so well written that you will feel like you are in the summer heat of Mississippi with Jaymee and Nick as they struggle to figure out what is going on.  There is little left to the imagination except for the killer and his or her motives.  The clues always seem to point one way but the path takes them in yet another.  I am sure that Tin God will leave you breathless with anticipation and your heart will ache with the pain both the hero and heroine will have to endure. Needless to say, I also think you will start to become emotionally involved with at least one of the supporting characters who I hear is the subject of the next story in the Delta Crossroads series.
     Stacy Green is a relatively new author to the scene and if you haven't read one of her first books Into the Dark, you won't want to miss that one.  Ms. Green really is a talented storyteller who creates very realistic plots that engage the reader and leave them questioning things around them while wanting more or her work.

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
