The Bullet - Mary Louise Kelly

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

What would you do if, at 37 years old, you discovered you'd been adopted after your parents' murder, and that the bullet that almost killed you was still lodged in your neck?

I really liked this book. The main character, Caroline, is a little naive and definitely sheltered, which makes the discovery of her past more shocking. It's well written, and the pacing is good and keeps you reading through the turns of the story. Caroline is a pretty good character, even though there were a couple of points where I rolled my eyes over her actions or total lack if understanding of the criminal justice system. I mean, come on, has she never seen an episode of Law & Order?

Overall it was a really solid mystery, definitely a page-turner.
