Tin God by Stacy Green - Review

Title: Tin God
Author: Stacy Green

Synopsis: Trapped by poverty and without many allies, Jaymee Ballard is determined to reunite with the daughter she believes was stolen from her. But when the one person willing to help Jaymee ends up murdered in one of the historic mansions in Roselea, Mississippi, she realizes the secret of her past has come back to haunt her. 

Now any hope Jaymee has of making things right rests in a man she barely knows and is afraid to trust, a man with his own demons to fight. Up against years of deception, they rush to identify the killer before the evidence-and Jaymee's daughter-are lost.

TIN GOD is an action packed romantic suspense/psychological thriller featuring a strong woman determined to find a demented serial killer and find justice for her child.

My Thoughts: I love finishing a book with the thought that I have found a new favorite author. I know that I will happily (and perhaps obsessively) read every book they write. For years the only author on that list was James Patterson, and as time has gone on I have added a few more. Stacy Green made that list for me.

I thought Tin God sounded interesting. I love romance novels, I love thrillers, and I tend to enjoy books set in the south. Tin God captivated me from the first sentence. Green has a wonderful writing style that brings every written moment to life.

I fell in love with Jaymee immediately in this book. She is flawed like any other person in the world, but her drive is inspirational. I found an emotional connection to the character. I respected how much she had been through and yet she came out stronger. She made a wonderful female lead, one that I wanted to read about. Nick complemented her well as the male lead character. He was equally as tenacious in solving the mystery that is unfolding.

The villains, and yeah there were many, were amazing. I could not believe some of the horrific lows they reached, but I was so invested in each resolution to the problems they caused. The wildest part for me turned out to be the end. I had my heart all set on who was going down and then a crazy unexpected twist changed everything. I loved it! I love a book that isn’t completely predictable. I want that rush of unexpected excitement over a huge surprise in a story.

I would call Tin God the start to something amazing in the Delta Crossroads series. I don’t know how far Green plans to take this series but I will be going along for the ride. I think anyone could love this book. It is a perfectly written romantic thriller that will surprise and captivate readers. I cannot wait to start reading the next book, Skeleton’s Key.

  1. Wow! I don't even know what to say to this wonderful review. I am so thrilled you liked Tin God. It was a tough book to write, and balancing the dash of romance, as I like to call it, is always a challenge. I can't tell you how much it means to me to hear you say I'm added to your select list of authors. Thank you!
