Book Review: Tin God by Stacy Green

I should have know when I saw the spelling of the main character’s first name that this wasn’t going to be a great book. Who spells a name Jaymee? I’ve always been a fan of the traditional spelling of a name, not this “my kid is special and so is the spelling of their name” crap that has been going on for the last decade. But, I digress.

The story wasn’t horrible, just fairly predictable. Jaymee is broke and living in a trailer park while working at a diner. She’s saving up so she can afford a lawyer to get back the daughter she was coerced into givingĀ up for adoption seven years ago. Her best friend, who was trying to help Jaymee find her daughter, was murdered four years ago and Jaymee pretty much gave up hope of ever finding her. Then another of Jaymee’s friends is murdered and she doesn’t know where to turn. She teams up with the husband of her murdered friend to find the murderer. The conclusion of the story felt pretty rushed and came out of left field. There really wasn’t anything tying it all together.

All I can say is I’m glad this book was free. Like I said, it wasn’t horrible, just predictable. If you get it for free, great, but I don’t recommend buying it.
