  • Quite an enjoyable Private Investigator read!

    "Girl Under Water” by L.T. Vargus and Tim McBain was quite an enjoyable read! I was sucked right into the distracting world of family drama, greed, and mystery! I won't waste anyone's time going into the book summary; the book’s blurb/description does a rather fine job of that. While this is book two in a series, it absolutely can be read as a standalone. ’An absolutely unputdownable and gripping crime thriller.’ That tagline sure does stand up to its claims. ”Girl Under Water” was fast-paced and action-packed, filled to the brim with twists and turns - most of which I did not see coming! Those final reveals were both disturbing and jaw-dropping. Detective Charlotte Winters's character was a nice change of pace. After being contacted to take on a case, she throws herself full force into the investigation, fighting for the truth, and ultimately the lives of all involved as everyone's secrets come sinking down, one by one. I appreciated how this book, this series, is told from a private investigator’s perspective. Additionally, Charlie's scenes with her mother made her character feel realistic, easier to connect to; after all, don't we all struggle with family from time to time? Luckily Charlie’s ongoing mental conversations with her long-deceased twin sister Allie habitually come at just the right time, providing some much-needed comedic relief! Of course, I can't forget to mention Vivien Marley - she was a hoot! You'll see why when you get there! I'm looking forward to reading the first book in this series, ”First Girl Gone,” and hopefully the next! I'd happily recommend this to my fellow crime thriller fans! Many thanks to NetGalley, the authors L.T. Vargus & Tim Mcbain, and the publishers at Bookouture for my copy.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • loved it

    First off I want to say huge thank you to the publisher Bookouture , the authors LT Vargus and Tim McBrian as well as to NetGalley for inviting me to join the blog tour for this book as well as letting me read and review. This was my fist time reading anything by these authors and it won't be my last, in fact I just realized that I have book 1 to read as well, and after reading this one I can't wait to get to that one especially since this one was so suspenseful right from the very start and had me trying to guess who was lying and who was telling the truth. Another thing I loved was the interaction between the characters .

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Female PI in Michigan

    REVIEW Girl Under Water by L.T. Vargus Detective Charlotte Winters #2 Charlie Winters has a new assistant and a new case. She is hoping her uncle Frank will get good feedback from his oncologist and is eager to find a good way to care for her mother while she works in her uncle’s place at A1 Investigations. Meeting Charlie in book one I found the conversations she had with her sister, missing twenty years and presumed dead, interesting. I just reviewed my previous review and was reminded that Charlie left a job elsewhere to return too Michigan and was conflicted about that move. As in book one, the prologue sets the stage for the case Charlie will be working on and within the first chapter or so we meet the main characters and potential killer. What I liked: * Charlie: seemed intelligent, focused, and a good person. She cared about her mother and uncle and…heard the voice of her long gone sister. * Frank: didn’t see much of him but did like Charlie’s uncle and hope to se more of him in book three. * The way the story was presented…the time line and slow presentation of tidbits was intriguing * Who Charlie called on for assistance – would like to hear more about Zoe, Mason and Paige in future books * That it is set in Michigan * The way Charlie pursued the case * That I was not sure who the killer was till near the end – and then there was a twist * The other twist, or two, or more…hmm… * That the killer was revealed and dealt with * knowing there will be another book to look forward to and hoping to learn more about the cast of characters in book three. What I didn’t like: * Knowing that family dynamics can be “bad” and that dysfunctional families exist as they did in this book. * The lengths some of the characters went to for the reasons they thought were justifiable * Having to wait to read book three…am curious. Did I like this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

  • An entertainig read

    'Girl Under Water' is detective Charlie Winters journey for finding the will of a dead Billionnaire Dutch carmicheal. This takes her on a more sinister journey leading to discovery of secrets, lies, and affairs and something much bigger. His eldest daughter Gloria hires Charlie to uncover her father's missing will. This leads Charlie to meet the Carmichael siblings each with a mystery. She has this feeling of something not right in the family and suddenly, her client meets with an accident right in front of Charlie's eyes. She just determines to follow the clues and wants to make right the death of father and daughter by solving the mystery. The story is a part of the Charlie Winter series by the authors but can very well read as a standalone. The story is intricate and nothing is seemingly as is, Along with the case, Charlie is also preoccupied with her mother's illness. I liked Charlie's character and her personality. Even more lovable is Allie, her twin sister who apparently talks to her in her head. their banter is fun and insightful The case progresses along with other parallel stories of Paige, her secretary and her uncle's illness. The case per se presents a lot of red herring and I found it difficult to guess the actual story till the end. The language is easy to understand, with a lot of descriptions. I felt the ending got a bit stretched out. All in all I enjoyed the story I would recommend this book to all those who like mystery thrillers with a female lead detective with a quirky guardian angel for a sister. i thank Bookouture and Netgalley for approving my request to read the book and the opinions expressed are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
