“Sight lines” introduces the reader to Lacey Mills, a workaholic lesbian police woman in small-town Ohio. She is a loner, having lost her partner Tara (who was also her bosses daughter) to a serial killer. She is working on the case when another body is found. The MO matches those previous in that the victim is a young woman, nothing stolen, car nearby, and shot in the head from a considerable distance.
Whilst in the process of investigating, she meets Ali Rhodes and they are instantly attracted to one another. This is Lacey’s first relationship since Tara, and she is leery of getting hurt.
When evidence dictates that Ali is somehow connected to the killings, Lacey feels betrayed. Then when both she and Ali are placed in mortal danger, she is instrumental in apprehending the serial killer.
Though “Sight Lines” has a fast-paced, acceptable storyline, I found this novel to be overly dramatic… leaning more toward lesbian romantic suspense than thriller. I can recognize that the story might be immensely enjoyable for some – just not for me. I felt the action and even the emotional displays were ‘over the top’ and I can’t in all honesty imagine that I will ever read another title by this author. Personal taste – no reflection on Ms. DiCeglio’s abilities.
I received this title from Ellora’s Cave Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
Thank you so much for your candor.
