My Review:

No Good Deed has many shocking but not surprising twists that kept me glued to the pages wondering how it would all come together in the end. No Good Deed is filled with sadness and hidden truths.

No Good Deed is a story about abuse and how two women helped to save each other and others in need of help. They are harboring some deep dark secrets that could destroy their lives if they were ever to be revealed.

The secrets the women are hiding are things they did in their past that they thought they had to do to survive. Things that they would never have considered doing if their lives had played

 out differently. You know if life hadn’t dealt them a bad deck of cards, so to speak.

No Good Deed is a book that will draw you in from the first page and keep you hanging on. It is a book that will have you wanting to stop reading but can’t as you are so invested in its characters and the situations they are dealing with. No Good Deed may be a sad book but the characters will touch your heart.

I recommend No Good Deed to all mysteries, thrillers, and crime stories fans! Grab a copy of No Good Deed today!
