Review of Dark Pursuit by Brandilyn Collins

I just finished reading Dark Pursuit
by Brandilyn Collins. This is the first fiction book by Collins that I have read. I have her non-fiction writing book, Getting Into Character: Seven Secrets a Novelist Can Learn From Actors
so I was especially interested to see how she developed her characters.

I was not disappointed. Aside from a few character quirks that seemed textbook to me, the characters were well developed. Some of their actions were slightly unbelievable but they worked with and helped move the story forward.

The story was fast-paced and suspense was held high through the story. Overall I enjoyed the book and give it 3 1/2 stars.
