  • Great Romantic Thriller Debut Novel

    I thoroughly enjoyed Go for Broke, the debut romantic thriller by Daisy Knox. Who does not love a romantic thriller with a happily ever after ending? Daisy Knox is a wonderful storyteller. I love how she developed the story line and the characters. I love how Daisy Knox incorporated the name of the book into the story with a simple phrase by Zack. My favorite part of the story is that it is set in Pittsburgh, and as a Pittsburgher, I loved reading the references to my hometown. I love that she wrote Go for Broke in the first person from the perspective of the main characters. I love getting inside their minds and knowing their thoughts and how they really feel. Go for Broke is the story of Cadence “Cady” Blackwell, office worker at a construction company and Zack Strozzi, private investigator. Cady reaches out to Daniel Abbott for assistance with crank calls she is getting. Shortly thereafter, Daniel realizes that his computer was hacked and is concerned that he has put Cady’s life in jeopardy. Daniel is trying to prove that his brother, Brandon, who is in jail for the murder of Grace, Brandon’s wife and several other victims. Daniel is trying to prove his brother’s innocence. Daniel asks Zack to follow Cady to keep her safe. Cady corners Zack as he follows her and she realizes that he is the one-night stand who ghosted her earlier. Zack and Cady review case files from cases similar to Daniel’s brother’s case. As Zack and Cady continue to spend time together, they each realize that they have feelings for one another. They also deduce who might be behind the recent murders and rapes in the area, which have similar findings to the other cases they were investigating. A plot twists changes things for Zack and Cady and puts their lives in danger. I did not enjoy knowing the identity of the perpetrator so early in the story. I prefer to be surprised by their identity. I also felt the story was a slow build, and that it moved very slowly, it was more about the romance between Zack and Cady, than finding the whereabouts of the perpetrators. I prefer that my romantic thrillers be more thriller with some romance. All is all was a good story, hopefully with more experience, Daisy Knox will be able to create more drama more quickly. I enjoyed the ending and how Zack and Cady get their happily ever after. I recommend Go for Broke if you love a romance with some thriller mixed into the story.

    Thanks for your feedback!
