One Deadly Sin by Annie Solomon

April 26th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


Thanks to Hachette Book Group for the chance to review this book.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars.


Revenge. Edie Swann has hungered for it since she fled her hometown as a little girl. Now she’s returned, ready for payback. Armed with a list of names, she leaves each one a chilling sign that they have blood on their hands. Her father’s blood. What happens next turns her own blood cold: one by one, the men she’s targeted start dying.

Sheriff Holt Drennen knows Edie is hiding something. She has a haunted look in her eyes and a defiant spirit, yet he can’t believe she’s a murderer. As the body count rises and all evidence points to Edie, Holt is torn between the town he’s sworn to protect and the woman he’s come to desire. But nothing is what it seems. Long buried secrets begin to surface, and a killer won’t be satisfied until the sins of the past are paid in full–this time with Edie’s blood.

I really enjoyed reading this story.  Edie wasn’t anything like I was expecting.  She had that tough girl exterior but was a real softy inside.  I liked Holt although it really bugged me that he wasn’t willing to give Edie the benefit of the doubt.  I know he was hurt that Edie lied to him but come on, if you really loved her?  I have to say the ending was a surprise and one I didn’t see coming.   Check out the giveaway I’ll be posting soon to win a copy of this book!

    Hi, Debbie! Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for joining the tour. Glad you enjoyed the book, even though Holt didn’t give Edie the benefit of the doubt!
