Blog Tour Book Review Admit to Mayhem by D. J. Adamson


With a contrary attitude and an addiction for independence, Lillian Dove admits she has not been a success in life. In fact, she considers failing as one of her addictions. Yet, when she comes across a suspicious house fire with a history of arson and murder, she instinctively attempts to help someone trapped. Lillian becomes the only possible eyewitness to criminal arson, and her life begins to spiral out of control. Lillian Dove is an endearing "everywoman" struggling with life issues, emotional complexities and a habit of doing just the opposite of what she's told to do. These qualities in a heroine give the reader an ability to vicariously struggle along with the protagonist in this intriguing Midwest Noir mystery.

My Thoughts:

Admit to Mayhem got me hooked to the bone. Lillian's character annoyed me at times. I thought that she was very winny and she had low self-esteem. I think that anyone can do anything weather you are a boy or girl. But as the story progressed on I saw that she changed her ways. She began to have more confidence in what she could do, and I really like that. The author incorporated so much feeling into the book and characters that can happen in real life. The mystery started off slow but as you continue ready you will get hooked on your feet. If you haven't read this book go on ahead there is so much "Mayhem" and confusion its too good to pass up.
