Admit to Mayhem by DJ Adamson

Admit to MayhemBook Description:
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:
This was an intriguing book.  Lillian hasn't been perfect in life but she is still human.  When she thinks she hears someone trapped in a fire, she tries to help.  Then she is the only witness to arson and everything in her life changes.
The author does a good job with the mystery portion of this book.  It is orchestrated so that it flows well and goes through the book.  I liked that Lillian wasn't a perfect person.  She had a past, she had personal issues, and she dealt with both.  She tries to be better, and knows she has issues but has a sense of right and wrong.  I will absolutely be reading more from this author.
It was a 4/5 for me.  Good writing of a mystery.

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book (via PUYB).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
