Blog Tour: Russian Dolls by Cristelle Comby

New Adult - Mystery&Detective
Date Published:3/13/2013

Alexandra Neve is a student at University College London whose world suddenly falls apart. When her best friend jumps from the university’s rooftop, she can’t stop herself from asking, ‘Why?’ The police rule her friend’s death a suicide and for them the case is closed — so whom can she turn to for help?

Sometimes the person you need the most is the one you least expect to find, and in this case it’s none other than Ashford Egan, a blind middle-aged history professor, who’s more willing than most to listen to what she has to say. 

Neve and Egan are as different as they come. She’s restless, careless at times, and fearless when the need arises, while he’s almost the complete opposite: a deep thinker with an analytical mind, a highly rational and collected individual.

As they enter the violent world of the Russian mafia, they must overcome their differences and learn to work together. It’s their only chance if they want to survive.

My Review:
Unique. That is the main way I would describe this book. This would be described as New Adult as far as the ages and life experiences go, but it really reads like a Detective/Mystery/Nancy Drew type of book with a more contemporary feel. 

I loved the writing style and the flow of the novel seemed effortless. I was kept on the edge of my seat til the very end and loved the mystery and suspense that was built. 

This first novel really sets up the foundation for a wonderful series and I will be reading more from Cristelle Comby in the future!
