Nick of Time by Tim Downs

A forensic entomologist is all science. He thinks logically and rationally and is totally engrossed in his career. With his wedding only a few days away, he takes off to solve a murder case involving an old friend. As the questions grow, it becomes less likely that he will make it back to his wedding on time.

This is a fun, easy, entertaining read. It isn't difficult, there are no underlying themes to figure out - it is just relaxing novel. The science aspects are easily understood and the suspense is just enough to keep you reading. As I read this book, I really thought I had the plot figured out and that it would be very typical. It surprised me. Multiple times. And I really liked that.

Some of the humor was a little overboard, but I could overlook it because I was interested in the story. I appreciate that the novel is clean, humorous and overall, a book worth reading.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
