Book Tour: Cards of Sin by K.J. Dahlen


About the Book
When Reporter Cheyenne Gentry gets an Instant Message she tries to ignore it, but the sender wants her to know he murdered someone tonight. Cheyenne thinks it’s a hoax but finds out it’s not. Then the killer tells her he wants her to write his story. Cheyenne wants nothing to do with the story or the killer but the killer won’t let her refuse his request. Will he let her live long enough to find him or will she become another chapter to his story?

My Review
I'm a lover of murder mysteries. Cards of Sin was a good read....however I think the book could have been much longer. The story kept me engrossed, and from page 50 on, I couldn't put it down. I personally would like to have read more back story about the main characters...which is why I think the book could be longer. I think the serial killer's M.O. is interesting and his reasons for killing are thought provoking. The author does a great job at showing how pathetic the killer really is...and the main character, Cheyenne, is a strong female character. I feel this book is not only a murder mystery novel but also a statement about the justice system. It definitely got me thinking about the many injustices in our justice system. Although the editing could be better...I came across quite a few grammatical errors....this is overall a good read. I would definitely recommend this if you're looking a for a quick read. 

Buy Cards of Sin on Amazon (Kindle format and Paperback) & Barnes & Noble (Nook format)

About the Author
"I am a simple person leading a simple life just like you. I live in a small town (population 495) in Wisconsin. From my deck I can see the Mississippi River on one side and the bluffs, where eagles live,  on the other side. I live with my husband Dave and my dog Sammy. Our two children are grown and one has children of her own (which makes me a grandmother) and for that fact I am blessed. I love people and while I worked for awhile I was lucky to be a stay at home Mom and then when the time came I was a stay at home grandmom. I've been writing for awhile now and I find it's rewarding. I love to create characters and put them in a troubling situation and just sit back and let them do all the work. They surprise even me at times. They take on a life of their own and the twists and turns become a story. I tried writing romance but I found I liked mystery/thrillers the best. I like to keep my readers guessing until the very end of the book. But that's just me..." - K.J. Dahlen
