    I finally got to read my first reads selection for July What a wonderful heartbreaking story that was sadly the execution was a little bit lacking for me 35 stars rounded downWhen a teenage girl walks into the Seattle FBI office at 300 am and asks for Agent Lucy Thorne nobody expected what happened She tells Lucy that she has killed a 12 year old boy Noah Dawson of Knox Landing in Idaho She describes where to find the body and the murder weapon She is also at pains to tell Lucy there is a bible verse carved into his chest And then she clams up and doesn’t say another word The Sheriff of Knox Hollow soon confirms that the body and weapon have been found as described Lucy has a gut instinct that she is missing something like a motive for one thing and gets her boss to agree that she can spend a few days in Knox Hollow looking into the caseAfter her arrival Lucy soon realises that nothing is simple in this town For one thing a significant number of the community were members of a very devout religious sect For another getting information out of people was worse than pulling teeth As the plot thickens the time line jumps around both backwards and forwards a bit annoying it becomes apparent that teenage girls have gone missing There have also been deaths of children than you would expect in such a population The church holds its secrets very tightly but clearly there is something fishy going onIt was hard to like any of these characters The sheriff was super laconic and it got annoying very uickly The church people were evasive and we’re clearly hiding something and Lucy herself seemed a bit scatterbrained at times I can’t put my finger on it but her thought processes just seemed a bit off kilter Nevertheless it was a great story very sad that kept me engaged throughout

    While only my second book by this author it's clear that the setting and mood are important characteristics to the stories she tellsHer Final Words centers around a small town in Idaho called Knox Hollow Within its borders is a church known for its strict doctrines and tight control over its members While FBI Agent Lucy Thorne investigates the murder of Noah Dawson this church and their beliefs are woven into the story None so than their belief that there should be no medical intervention when someone is sick or hurt including children The state's Shield Law protects parents in these instances but it is no less controversial Throughout the story we learn how difficult it is for the small Knox Hollow police department to coincide with this churchOne of the fascinating aspects of the book is how little we know of our main character Agent Thorne Often this genre will provide a detailed character description along with a list of their flaws and demons Instead Agent Lucy Thorne enters the story with very little background given As the story progresses we learn about who Lucy is not by her history but by her actions and by how she interacts with Sheriff Hicks and Deputy GrantWhile Lucy's narrative is the central POV mixed in are chapter's from the events leading up to when Eliza confesses to FBI Initially I feared I would get bored of seeing only one person's flashback So I was pleasantly surprised when the past events were told from multiple points of view By doing so we are given an incomplete picture of what transpired that helps to keep us guessing until the pieces finally start to fit together at the endIn general Her Final Words comes across as a straight mysterysuspense story with no alternating story lines told For me this approach worked as it allowed me to focus only on the story at hand

    What a struggle to get through Sorry this just didn't work for me It was WAY too much of unsaid words reading expressions and knowing EVERYONE was lying The author constructed a plot with everyone having the ability to easily lie cover their tracks and read meaning into every single facial expression It was exhausting as the reader to deal with this on every single page And why does every author insist on the hero or protagonist having a dead or almost dead cell phone?? Seriously? If I was in the FBI and I'm BY MYSELF IN THE REMOTE IDAHO wouldn't I make sure my cell phone is charged? It's just insulting to the reader that to accept that law enforcement would not have a charged phone and back up Figure out another way for the bad thing to happen

    A decent enough thriller if light on the characterisation and dialogue

    Welcome to Knox Hollow Idaho FBI Special Agent Lucy Thorne is investigating the death of a teenage boy He was thought of as 'missing' until Eliza Cook walks into the police station and confesses to murdering Noah Dawson She tells them where he is but gives no motive She doesn't speak another wordLucy's gut feeling is that she made a false confession and getting to the truth is becoming an obsessionWhat Lucy is learning is that this close knit town is full of secrets everyone from the church which seems to control the town to the Police Chief which no one seems to like or want to work with The town residents are certainly no help in determining why Noah was killed even his parentsAnd then buried bodies are found Intricate plot is woven around deftly drawn characters The main narrative comes from Lucy with events leading up to the confession told by various points of view It's nicely paced from start to finish It's not a grab your throat suspense but the mystery is a real page turnerMany thanks to the author Thomas Mercer Publishing Netgalley for the digital copy of this crime fiction Read and reviewed voluntarily opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own

    Another free monthly Prime First Reads bustHER FINAL WORDS is a story with a terrific premise and plot but dreadful execution The book grabbed my interest which waned rapidly after the first chapter With too many points of view and time shifts I found myself losing investment in the story uickly before giving up and skimming to the end HER FINAL WORDS is a story that could have been so much

    Initially I had an extremely hard time getting into this book until about one third of the way in The first chapters were difficult for me to comprehend and invest in especially with all the back and forth from present day to “Three Weeks Earlier” Between the back and forth timeline and new characters being added I was very confused but once I got to the one third mark the story really picked up FBI Agent Lucy Thorne arrives in Knox Hollow Idaho to investigate the disappearance and possible murder of a 12 year old boy A teenage girl admits to killing him but first his body must be found The confessed killer is not talking and strange things are happening in this townWorking with Sheriff Wyatt Hicks Lucy soon comes to realize that there are many secrets in this small community and people aren’t what they seem including the Sheriff himself and his deputy Everything seems to circle back to the mysterious cult like church with its strange beliefs the Know Hollow Church run by Pastor Josiah Cook and his wife Rachel Soon Lucy does not know who she can trust I applaud the author for the premise plot and character development but I felt there was a disconnect between the melding of the three I began to lose interest again around two thirds way through and then suddenly was drawn back in for a somewhat exciting finish I say this because I had figured out who the killer was but totally did not foresee the motiveAll in all I enjoyed this book and gave it three and one half stars rounded down to three I would read a book by this author again given the chance I thank NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book

    Brianna Labuskes has done it again giving us another fantastic mystery to crawl inside our skulls and dance around for a bit She lays out tons of threads all over the small Idaho town of Knox Hollow then expertly weaves them back together for a finale that will leave you unable to turn the pages fast enough
