Review: Grime Family by Marji Laine

grime-family-cover-2In case you missed my review of Grime Family over on the Suspense Sisters reviews page…

I really enjoyed this continuation of the Grime Fighter series. Although the small town setting was slower paced and different than the earlier books, which are set in the Dallas area, there was still a mystery to be solved and danger always seems to find Dani Foster.
I liked visiting Jay Hunter’s small town and meeting the people he grew up with. It was painful to watch as Dani was continually treated badly by Jay’s family for things that weren’t her responsibility. However, the reasons behind their actions become clear as the story unfolds. I was extremely impressed with both Jay and Dani in the way that they dealt with Jay’s family and their treatment of Dani.
Each of the previous Grime Fighter mysteries have revealed a bit more about Dani and her past. This novella did not truly add much new information, however, the reader will continue to see Dani struggle with hiding who she really is from Jay. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series and finding out the full extent of Dani’s backstory. This has been a fun series to read.
(5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
grime-family-cover-2Meeting the parents can be murder. For Dani Foster that’s a literal statement, and there’s little chance her boyfriend’s parents will ever warm up to her. Not after what she uncovers.

After dating for several months, it’s only natural that Jay Hunter should want his girlfriend to meet his family. But Dani’s curious nature and extraordinary observation skills can’t be turned off. Not even for his parents. Their secrets aren’t her doing, and the fact that she unearths them aren’t her intentions, so why is she openly hated?
His parents’ obvious dislike for the lady he loves leaves Jay with a terrible decision. Does he accept their counsel and give up this woman who has meant so much to him, or does he return to Dallas with Dani and never look back? Or is there some way the problems can be resolved without destroying either relationship?
