Continuing with the theme of 'murder murder murder' I picked up It Takes One by Kate Locke which is a psychological thriller taking place in a small rural town. (Looking at the descriptions of some of Locke's other books it seems like 'small town murder mystery' might be a specialty of hers.) Audrey Harte is a criminal psychologist who is frequently asked to lend her opinion on true crime shows where a professional analysis is required. Unbeknownst to her colleagues, she has a dark past that she's been trying to leave behind for years. You see Audrey murdered her best friend's father when they were kids and spent several years at a juvenile facility for violent girls. O_O So when she goes home for the first time in several years and a body turns up...you can imagine where the fingers start pointing. Now Audrey has to find the killer before either she's found guilty or dead. I will say that when you find out whodunit it is a SHOCK to say the least.

This is the first in a series featuring Audrey Harte as the main character but I think I've probably had my fill after reading this one. (She's not particularly likable if you want my opinion and the explicit sex scenes are not my cup of tea.) A surprising ending doesn't override the fact that I've read better psychological thrillers. 5/10 ( )

The writing is sophomoric, like a teen using crude language to seem more adult, and failing miserably. Stilted dialogue and stereotypes for characters. ( )

This novel was given to me as an advanced copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I really did not enjoy this novel. For some reason, I wasn't able to get into the story and I didn't like the style of writing employed by the author. Audrey's character just complained over and over again and her interactions with other people seemed just too unrealistic. It seemed as if everywhere one looks, there is some character having some kind of issue that they just don't seem to be able to deal with. It got to be too much for me, and I definitely began to lose interest. As much as I wanted to find out who the real killer was, I just could not continue to push through this novel, so unfortunately, I'm going to have to add this book to the DNR pile. I know that others have read this novel and have given it a fantastic review so maybe it's just me. ( )

It Takes One is the first in Kate Kessler's Audrey Harte series about a criminal psychiatrist who knows first hand about committing murder as a teenager.

Kessler devotes a good portion of this book to descriptions of her home town as well as most of the people in it. While I did not find this particularly off-putting it did seem that at least some of the work was for the benefit of future volumes in the series. Unless a book is intentionally minimalist I also tend toward not minding description that adds to the atmosphere of the location. In It Takes One the town is very much like an additional character so the description served to help me understand the role place represents in the decisions many of these characters make and have made.

This is one of those mysteries where almost everyone can lay claim to having figured out the killer. Not so much because they definitively did so but because there were so many possibilities that at some point the reader probably did land on the right one. Like most readers, and hopefully police investigators, you keep these suspicions bracketed while you continue to learn more, even if you are pretty sure you're right. Kessler provides both suspects and motives aplenty, and the fun is watching the story unfold as much as in pretending to solve it by page 5. Some readers remind me of that old game show, Name That Tune, you know, "I can name that song in 3 notes." That is so foreign to the way I read a novel, I like to let the writer unfold the narrative and present the plot, even if I am almost certain of the criminal. But that is just me, my reading is more about my enjoyment than what I can claim to others. Such is life.

I would recommend this to readers of suspense crime books as compared to procedural crime stories. Also to readers who like location to play a role (as compared to many procedurals that could just as easily have taken place in NYC or LA or any other significant size city).

Reviewed from a copy made available through Goodreads First Reads. ( )

At the age of 13, Audrey and her best friend Maggie killed Maggie's father who had been sexually abusing Maggie. After her detention, Audrey turned her life around, left her hometown and became a criminal psychologist who has specialized in working with young offenders. Years later, she returns home for her mother's birthday and ends up becoming a murder suspect.
This started out really strongly and had all the trademarks of a dark and gripping mystery. But some way into the story, it turned into overkill. EVERY single character had issues. For a tiny place somewhere in Maine, this town's inhabitants had an over-proportionate amount of problems. When Audrey started diagnosing Maggie with Dissociative Identity Disorder it became a bit too much for me.
Audrey herself was a great character. I liked the clear-cut way she talked and behaved. But I had a hard time believing how Audrey's father and the relationship between him and Audrey changed so abruptly.
The most captivating part for me was the relationship between Audrey and Jake. Jake was a really mysterious and intriguing character, and I really enjoyed the banter between him and Audrey.
The actual whodunit wasn't very suspenseful. If you took into account the title of the book, Audrey's job focus and the hints that were dropped about the victim, there was really only one solution. So it was more about following Audrey to see how she would work it out.
The plot moved along at a steady pace and the prose was pretty good, but I felt some tighter editing could have improved it. Some points were made repeatedly.
This is a debut novel and as such, there is lots of potential here for some dark and twisted mysteries in the future. Audrey and Jake were certainly intriguing enough to follow their progress in the second book Two Can Play.
I'm curious to see whether there will be further revelations about Jake and his dealings.
Many thanks to Redhook Books who provided me with a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
