I finished this book in a little over 24 hours with only a couple of hours of sleep. It was that good. Audrey Harte helped to kill her bestfriend Maggie's father. He'd been sexually abusing Maggie for years and Audrey wasn't the kind of girl to let it continue. Over a decade later Audrey is coming home for her mothers birthday celebration and Maggie is killed. Audrey is the first suspect.

The friendship between Audrey and Jake was special. All he was willing to give up to see her succeed. The mc's were great and the supporting characters were just as good. I felt like a friend along fir the dinners, parties and drinking. I loved it and sincerely hope thatvKate Kessler writes another Audrey Harte book. There are other murders she can help solve or more teenage murrderers for her to help.

It Takes One (Audrey Hart #1) by Kate Kessler is the start to a new series that was fast paced and had a multitude of plot twists. The main character, Audrey, was a juvenile murderer who now works with and studies juvenile murderers, a love interest, Jake, who is both sweet and ruthless, a murdered childhood friend, Maggie and small town with some very dysfunctional people.
A lot of serious issues are covered throughout the story and are handled very well by this author. Audrey is a strong female character who loves with all her heart, but also has a violent side that she had to learn to handle and control. She comes home after living in L.A. for seven years for her mother’s birthday and becomes the main suspect in the murder of her childhood friend. As she and Jake try to find out who is really responsible, we are introduced to a small town of suspects, gossips, alcoholics, sexual deviants and delinquents. This is not Mayberry.
Strong, realistic characters, crisp writing and a plot that keeps you guessing has me anxiously awaiting the next book in this series.
