Synopsis from Goodreads:

SKEWED… a tantalizing mystery thriller that opens with a bang, turns lives upside down, and delivers a shocking jolt of a finale...

Janie Perkins rocks a warped relationship with cameras. Forced in front of them as an infant under grim circumstances, she now hides behind them as a crime scene photographer with a bad habit. But for a girl born to a waitress in a coma—courtesy of a bullet from her famous father—warped relationships are the norm. When Janie receives two photos of her mother's crime scene, she gains a dire perspective on the decades-old death, one that threatens to upend her life and resurrect the wrath of the long-dormant Haiku Killer.

With her twin brother running for office and her own problems rising to the fore, Janie finds herself in the dreaded spotlight once again. These recent photos won't help matters. Enlisting the help of a unique crime consultant, a newbie detective, and her estranged father, Janie pries off the layers of deceit that marked her mother's final day. But as an unwelcome truth finally comes into focus, Janie may wish she'd left things undeveloped. Will she now pay the ultimate price for finally righting her skewed existence?

My Review:

McAneny’s snarky take on life is thoroughly entertaining. The story itself is solid & entertaining. The intriguing plot had twists and turns around every corner. This author really keeps you on her toes. By bringing the past into the present she really keeps you guessing. Her tone is light and inviting, greatly increasing the draw of the novel.

I quite enjoyed McAneny’s character development. There is someone for everyone. Everyone is quite well developed and definitely one of a kind. They are the type of individuals that you don’t want to let go of at the end of the story.

Overall, this was a captivating, suspenseful novel that kept me on my toes.
