Book Review -- The Accidental Assassin by Nicole Chase

The Accidental AssassinThe Accidental Assassin by Nichole Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was provided with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Ava Mckenzie, is a simple next-door girl, who gets caught up in a terrifying murder for which she is responsible. Owen Walker is a ruthless and a very famous assassin, who finds himself in the amusing situation of having to help the girl who has run over a "mark". Thrown in to a ring of fire by the sudden turning points in their lives, Ava and Owen are strongly drawn towards each other, but are in a situation where they need to save their lives from horrid dangers before they can decide on a future together.

I was pleasantly surprised with the details in the characterisation that Chase has adopted in this book. For instance, Owen's character is developed piece by piece and how he has evolved into who he is, has been written very well. It helps the reader empathise with his decision to help Ava. With a brisk pace, the book blends many genres at once - there is a lot of suspense, romance, action and adventure - all spaced out evenly and enjoyably. I finished the book in one go - and was a bit disappointed that the book got over when it did! Chase's writing is so captivating that it's really hard to not want to read more of her books.

I highly recommend this book to lovers of multi-genre books, mixing romance with action and suspense.

My rating for this book: 4.5 stars
