Book Review: Guilty as Sin

I’ll have to admit that I had to make myself keep reading Guilty as Sin by Tami Hoag. It was a hard trudge. Too many characters who became indistinguishable. Points of View that switched willy-nilly without warning. A romance that was obvious from the beginning – she immediately disliked him so of course they would end up together – and this took away from the suspense since you knew neither would die. (Of course, that could be said for a lot of romances.)

But – and this is an important but – I’m glad I kept reading. The mystery of who-dun-it was good. I didn’t figure it out until the end. Hoag kept me guessing. Hoag also did a good job on the courtroom scenes.

If you want to read for the mystery, then I can recommend Guilty as Sin. If you’re reading for the romance, then my recommendation is low.


  1. Hey Helen! I participating in Lillie Ammann's blog tour this week. She and I did an interview discussing Domestic Violence.

  2. Hello Brooke. I see that you're doing a review on Tuesday and a podcast with Lillie on Wednesday over at BlueStocking.

    I'll for sure stop by!

  3. I've never read anything by Tami Hoag. I do get irritated with povs that switch too often, though.

  4. I agree Dana. I don't mind having multiple POVs within a book, but changing too often, such as within a paragraph, annoys me -- and jerks me out of the story.
