What a weird book.

This doesn't even read like a Tami Hoag book. The main plot is a mess (investigating assault and murders of women) with multiple character POVs. I don't get the romance between Annie Broussard or Nick Fourcade. The setting of Louisiana could have been interesting, but ultimately fell flat. I just couldn't get behind Nick being an abusive police officer and Annie getting harassed by her fellow officers for daring to do the right thing.

I forgot I had "A Thin Dark Line" until I started rummaging through my bookshelves. I honestly didn't recall a thing about this book either so even though I had this book for years, nothing came back to me as I reread this.

Annie Broussard is a deputy looking to eventually become a detective. She finds herself fascinated by Nick Fourcade who is a loose cannon on the force. When Nick lashes out at a suspect, Annie steps on to stop the assault. This leaves Annie with a man who becomes obsessed with her. Nick also becomes obsessed with Annie initially thinking she is part of some conspiracy to ruin him.

I didn't really like any male in this book. Annie deserved better than Nick. In the end I think we're supposed to think Annie will keep Nick on the straight and narrow. Annie is put in danger repeatedly by her fellow officers and gets crapped on. She has an old flame try to tell her what to do and push his feelings on her. Maybe if Annie had a strong female relationship it would have helped balanced the overly masculine POVs.

I didn't believe the person who ended up being the suspect. It just read as false and something to throw out there. And I hated how things ultimately got wrapped up.

The writing was so so since we had multiple POVs. And we had Annie investigating and being harassed and Nick barely doing a thing it felt like. The flow was off. I found myself getting bored at parts. There were so many red herrings in this I just didn't even care at the end who was responsible for what.

I read this cause Hoag has a new book coming out that is a continuance of this series. Hopefully it's better than this. ( )

Really good story but didn’t think the Cajun/bayou language was very believable ( )

I was totally engrossed in this suspense novel which I read as a stand-alone. The intensity of the suspense was riveting.

By Chapter 40 I anticipated giving a rating of 5 stars. However, at this point in the novel a key character visits the Andrew Carnegie Library for research and the description of the "old" library disappointed me as per my italics of quoted material."The computers had been a gift to the library from a well-known local author, Conroy Cooper. A new library would have been a better gift. The Carnegie had been old when Christ was in short pants. Dank and dimly lit, the place had always given Annie the creeps. The air was musty with the smell of moldering paper. Every wooden surface had either turned black with age or been worn pale from use. Even the librarian, Miss Stitch, seemed slightly mildewed." ( )

I'm still trying to get into it. Hate the cliches, characters are boring and predictable. Can't really get emotionally invested in this story ( )

A great little mystery novel, that reads like a cozy with a very dark center. I liked the surprise of that! While I love a good cozy, for their comforting predictability, it's good to shake things up a bit and put a little zing in the formula.
Eloise Carmichael is a 30 something librarian, living in a guest house in the backyard of her best friend Jane in the small town of Dogwood, Ohio . Jane is pregnant, married to Ben and has two adorable little boys that love their Aunt Weez.
Idyllic it would seem, until Dogwood's own ex-con, Cormac O'Malley strolls back into town to a less than enthusiastic welcome.
Eloise hires Cormac to be a handyman at the library and that's when the bedlam begins.
Mystery, romance and murder, this story has it all and while it got a bit sappy at moments (I'm not a big romance reader), the author moved the story along quickly and made it very difficult to put down.
