Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter was recommended to me by another friend who likes thrillers/ fast paced crime books and it did not disappoint.  I flew through this by the pool, during nap times and during the national championship game cuz, I'm not a Kentucky or Kansas fan and my bracket no longer mattered to me.  Speaking of, I should check the 4 I participated in.

Anywhoo, back to the book! ;)

Sara Linton is a pediatrician/coroner for Grant County which forces her to work with her ex-husband, Jeffrey Tolliver, police chief.  Jeffrey stupidly cheated on Sara and they spend the whole book with some weird chemistry/fighting going on.  (by the way, this is a series so there are more!! yay)

The book starts out with Sara meeting her younger sister for lunch and finding a woman near death on the toilet.  She had some horrendous wounds and it obviously reminds Sara of something/someone.  Soon after, a local college girl goes missing and is found on Sara's car in an interesting position.  Then another person, key to the case goes missing.

Will they figure out who is kidnapping and hurting the women of Grant County before there is another death?  Better read to find out.

The writing was fine for the type of book, it was fast paced, kind of graphic in places and thankfully the Sara/Jeffrey situation isn't too simple or too complicated and there are still new snippets being introduced so I can totally see this working as a series. 

Check it out!
