Problem Child by Victoria Helen Stone
Jane Doe is Back!
My sincerest apologies to the author and Netgalley for my delayed review. This is an amazing book from page one until the last I. Let’s get into what I liked about this read. Victoria Helen Stone knocks it out of the park again for me with Problem Child. This is book two in the Jane Doe series if you haven’t read that then I would stop reading right here and go pick up book one. It is an awesome and quick read.
I loved reading “Jane Doe” last year, the female sociopath, who decides to go on a vendetta mission to avenge the death of her best friend, by bringing down the guy who drove her friend to kill herself in the most subtle way possible. This author, who has an uncanny ability to really get inside of her characters heads, shines a light on the differences between people. I have said so many times that I need a bit of a twisted book between all my romance reading and this fits that oh so well.
In this book, Jane is at the top of her game, underhandedly giving her colleague a much needed kick in the pants, and just enough rope to hang himself with at work. But she also shows a somewhat compassionate side when her 16 year old niece goes missing and nobody around her hometown seems to care.
Jane makes it her mission to teach some child predators a lesson they will never forget.
Sometimes I think Jane appeared more than a little mean-spirited, especially with unwitting strangers whom she seemingly stalked for pleasure, but overall, this was a fun, satisfying read. I loved the dialogue and the witty comebacks and loved the twist at the end. I really do hope there is a book three in this series because this was truly a fun read. Thank you again to Netgalley and all those involved in my receiving an arc of this book
