Famished (Ash Park #1) by Meghan O’Flynn was dark, gritty, and apart from having my heart in a vice, it had me hooked from start to finish.
My first read by this author I didn’t know what to expect. I just thought I was in for your normal, thriller mystery, like a CSI/Criminal Minds mix… No, no, no.. It was more on the darker side of Criminal Minds. Not only did I get attached to Hannah, I felt for her, somehow connected to her, and, I don’t even know what to say or think anymore.
Hannah was a good character, like I said I connect with her, and every minute of her hellish life I wish I could have been there to give her a hug, and just, put her in a bubble. Strong in her own right, Hannah was that MC you root for, hope for and just want all the good things for.
Damn Meghan O’Flynn, you managed to not only rip out my heart, but just when I thought things were looking up, you ripped it out again and stomped on it. Thanks….Sometimes there are no happy endings, and this book shows us, will for me I felt, it showed the real look at what goes on when trying to catch a killer. The grunt work, the long hours, and the constant feelings of guilt and grief that, you weren’t fast, or strong enough.
This book will push your emotions, will make you think it will end like your normal TV drama. Be prepared for some gut punching feels, and a good slap to the face. And that my friend is where I leave you, but yes, before I go, I give this book my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.
I will now dive into the next book.
What is wrong with me? Good writing that’s what
