I hated the idea of not using it somewhere, somehow. Eventually, I used a lot of that leftover info as the background to the plot of Dead Light District. Additionally, two independent reading courses on Crime Fiction that Jill did with Professor Veronica Thompson benefited her greatly when she was working on Blood and Groom , and when it came time to pitch the book to publishers.

This book is an easy read and an interesting plot, but definitely keeps your attention. And as a resident of Toronto, for the last 30 years, the descriptions and details of Toronto are so true and accurate. All I can say is hats off to a very talented writer, and thank you for allowing me to read your novel. Multiple storylines that overlap in some interesting places, fast-paced, fun and told from the perspective of Toronto's sexiest private investigator, the wonderful Sasha Jackson. Although somewhat new to the PI field, as Lies opens Sasha has many cases under her belt, including two big ones as told in "Blood and Groom" and "Dead Light District" and her confidence and sleuthing ability are -- to this reader at least -- noticeably improved.
She also has a new romance going on, the first serious one for her in quite some time. So, all in all, things are looking up for Sasha when she arrives at her favorite watering hole to help out a friend who works there by serving drinks at a private party. Not just any party, however, but a meet-and-greet and beat?
No spoilers, but from this richly described opening scene, Sasha gets involved in a murder, a missing persons case and a fraud investigation. Oh, and there is a political campaign going on as well, in which Sasha's brother the restaurateur has decided to actively support one of the many candidates.
How does it all tie together? You've got to read it to find out. As I previously wrote, Sasha is a very likeable and humorous protagonist. Her inner-mind observations are often quite funny, and I for one would like to have a copy of her music playlist. Having her progress as an investigator seemed very logical to me; she's had some high-profile successes and learned lessons from them. That isn't to say she won't still make some mistakes, but I would expect Sasha to be finding her rhythm by the third book.
Sasha's family and friends make a great supporting cast, and I would also highlight the role played by city of Toronto.
I'm sure the vivid descriptions of the city and its environs are treats for natives, but they also have me wanting to visit and poke around "The centre of the universe, T-dot, Hogtown, YYZ, or Canada's version of the Big Apple" to use Sasha's own words. Of course, having Sasha for a tour guide would make any trip a lot of fun. I'm not sure what Ms. Edmondson has planned for Sasha's next case, but rest assured I'm looking forward to reading it. I highly recommend the Sasha Jackson series for anyone looking for fast-paced and fun light mysteries.
Perfect companions for curling up on the couch on a rainy day or taking to the park or beach. I do like the fact that there is enough humor and mystery conbined that I don't feel that any of the characters are wooden or have goen stale, and as this is the 3rd book e-book in the series, I came into it with high expectations.
See a Problem?
In this I was not disapointed. The author knows what she is writing about- and that is the city of Toronto, and for myself as a reader this makes all the difference. I found that the book was fast paced and easy to read, this also leaves me hoping that they will write more. I was surprised by the ending since more often than not I feel that everything works out to neat in many mystery based novels.
I highly recommend this book to any mystery lover out there. The Lies Have It is a fast-paced tale about Sasha Jackson, a private investigator and gutsy heroine with street instincts.
The Lies Have it (Sasha Jackson Mysteries Book 3) eBook: Jill Edmondson: ywukakyzin.ml: Kindle Store
Written with a fine blend of wit and humor, the mystery takes us on a journey through several storylines and contains some of the zaniest, laugh-out-loud descriptions of people and things I've ever read. A realistic supporting cast adds layers of interest to the story while unforeseen events complicate the plot and Sasha's investigative work. In the spirit of a true sleuth, this feisty protagonist is determined to make things right and takes on any challenge that comes her way--no matter what the dress code calls for.
A highly enjoyable read for mystery fans!
