biloxi sunrise Reviews
This book had one of the most unusual and surprising plots I've read in a long time. Unfortunately, the writer did not spend enough time revising and editing to make the book really superior. The characters were not very believable, their individuality was not drawn at all, the tone of their dialogue was inconsistent, and the narration explained their dialogue on a regular basis. There were several places where the reader couldn't be sure exactly how the current situation fit into the whole story. Characters sometimes knew things that they couldn't actually have known as the story had been presented up to that point. In addition to these structural difficulties, there were editing snafus that a good editor would have corrected before publication (site instead of sight;"abusing with her," "he kept quite" for example.)
An enthusiastic five stars for Jerri Lynn Ledford's Biloxi Sunrise! This book captured my attention immediately and had me reading into the early hours of the morning! Homicide investigators Jack Roe and Kate Giveans are assigned the job of discovering who has brutally stabbed and killed two women and why. If that wasn't enough to keep them busy, they are worried about Jack's niece, Lisa, who they recently discovered has been being abused by her mom's boyfriend. Ledford's writing was top notch! Included at the end of the book is the novella, A Biloxi Christmas. It picks up Jack and Kate's story a few months later. It ends with you wondering what happens next. Happily, 2016's Biloxi Blues, continues their story! I will definitely be reading it soon!
Wow. I was hooked to this story in just a few pages. Jerri did an amazing job making you feel like you were in the story right along side everyone else. Don't get me started on the twists! Right when I thought I had everything figured out we took a left turn instead of a right. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and I cannot wait until the sequel!!!Excellent job!
Biloxi Sunrise has a very good thoughtful mystery suspense story line. I think that the book should have been edited more closely, but having worked with my husband on a self-published book, "Biloxi Rhapsody", I know how hard it is to catch all errors. Keeping character names correct is paramount. I recommend Biloxi Sunrise to readers, and both my husband and I will read the followup books.
