Born to Die

McIntire County Series, #2

I first met Cassy in “Atonement” and her relationship with Nic was very interesting. It made me wonder what Cassy did to have Nic be so foul and irritated with her. Though in Nic’s defense if I came home and found someone in my house uninvited, I’d be pissed too. In “Born to Die” Cassy has to work with Boyce and his partner to figure out what is going on with bank robberies and murders in her town.

Boyce’s relationship with his mother was just...WOW. I had no idea but I was glad that he was able to finally open up and just talk to Cassy. He has a lot of secrets and I really just wanted to shoot him at certain points. I got an up close and personally view of how Nic felt each time she saw him.

Another thing that was crazy was Cassy’s relationship with her parents. In “Atonement” Nic was the one that pushed them away and wanted nothing to do with them, in “Born to Die” it’s reversed.

The sentences were clean and the plot was clear. The beginning was a little slow for me but once I got into it, I could not stop reading.
