BOOK REVIEW: INSATIABLE by Emily Kimelman


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Emily will be awarding a hand blown pint glass that her husband (a third generation glassblower) made for the launch of her first novel, UNLEASHED, to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour. She will also be awarding a hand blown pint glass to two randomly drawn hosts.







INSATIABLE is the third novel in the Sydney Rye Series of dark murder mysteries. This series feature a strong female protagonist and her canine best friend. It is recommended for the 18+ who enjoy some violence, don't mind dirty language, and are up for a dash of sex. Not to mention an awesome, rollicking good mystery!

INSATIABLE begins with private detective Sydney Rye living a simple, disciplined life in London, but when a dangerous man from her past calls, Rye finds she cannot turn him away. Robert Maxim explains that the daughter of a powerful friend has gone missing and he wants Rye to find her. In exchange he offers her something she had given up hope of ever having; freedom from her past.

With her dog, Blue, at her side, Rye meets up with her new partner, a handsome man she's not sure she can trust. Heading for Mexico City, they go undercover, posing as husband and wife. After meeting with the bereaved parents, Rye starts to sense that there is more going on than just a missing girl. But it isn't until they arrive in the Yucatan Peninsula, hot on the girl's trail in Paradise, that all hell breaks loose. Sydney has to reach out for help from old friends and deal with the consequences of her past, if she's going to find the girl and keep them all alive.
This was an exciting book!  My only problem with it was----I haven't read the other two.  But that didn't keep me from enjoying the action and the characters.  It only makes me want to go back and read the other two books in the series to see what I've missed.  You don't need to have read the other books in the series, but I think it might make your reading richer.

I don't want to give away too much--this is a mystery after all.  The writing is good, the pace is quick, the characters are likable-- I especially like Sydney and Blue. Their bond is strong and they've been through a lot together.

I also really liked Dan and am interested to see how his and Sydney's relationship develops in the next book of the series. I see many adventures ahead for this group.
