Damaged book review and contest winners

If I could actually get away with just one phrase to describe this book
then I'd say "What a rush!",But of course nobody in their right frame of mind
would read  these reviews if that's all I said!  So let me clarify.  This is part of the Maggie O'Dell series , she's an FBI profiler who is sent to Pensacola,Florida
to track a killer , right before Hurricane Issac will make landfall.( I mean it's
just a category 5.  What's the problem?  As if preparing for a hurricane
wasn't stressful enough)  I love the way the plot plays out.  Usually for this genre the
pace is pretty quick,and as it probably should be depending on your goal as the
writer.  The pace is a little slower which in this case is good because you can pay
closer attention to details that will become crucial later in the story.  I was also pleased
with the character development .They were relatable and actually felt,dare I say it
empathetic to Maggie's characater.( I mean dude come on she already has Post
Traumatic Stress brought on by the previous cases and because of the nature of the
the job she will inevitably be traumatized so more)  OK.  before I go off on another tangent let me just say
that if you have been fiending for a suspense/mystery/thriller fix then this is it! I gave it 5 out of 5 stars. I would
like to thank Double Day publishing for allowing me the opportunity to review this book and no I don't get paid to do so. I am an Amazon associate.  Without further ado My two  winners are
Autumn and Brenda   so if you are reading this please email your address to
clsherrard(dot)bookaddict(at)gmail(dot)com so I can get the info to DoubleDay .  Stay tuned the next giveaway is coming very soon
