Until Proven Guilty (J.P. Beaumont #1) by J.A. Jance

Until Proven Guilty (J.P. Beaumont #1) by J.A. Jance
My Review: 5 of 5 Stars

Title:  Until Proven Guilty (J.P. Beaumont #1)
Author:  J.A. Jance
Length:  352 pages
Publisher:  Harper Collins E-Books
Published:  October 13, 2009
Genres:  Fiction; Mystery
Subjects:  J.P. Beaumont; Police; Seattle, Washington

The riveting debut appearance of Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont, from The New York Times bestselling author of Kiss of the Bees andBirds of Prey. 

The little girl was a treasure who should have been cherished, not murdered. She was only five too young to die and Homicide Detective J. P. Beaumont of the Seattle Police Department isn't going to rest until her killer pays dearly. But Beaumont's own obsessions and demons could prove dangerous companions in a murky world of blind faith and religious fanaticism. And he is about to find that he is himself the target of a twisted passion ... and a love that can kill.

My Review:
This was my first J.A. Jance novel, and I absolutely plan to continue the series.  It's not often that I read books where the main character is a male, but it certainly was a welcomed change.  I enjoyed the testosterone of the story and hearing about a love-type story coming from a male's perspective!

J.P. Beaumont is one hell of a main character and I thoroughly enjoyed the plot of the book.  It was not like any other plot that I've ever read, and it kept me interested and entertained, and certainly kept me guessing clear to the end, as I was holding my hand over my gaping open mouth in awe!  Very well done Ms. Jance!!

I am interested to see where the series goes for J.P. Beaumont, and although I haven't bumped the series up to the top of my favorite list, I will continue reading the series, at least for now!  Overall, I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story, and was certainly shocked at the outcome, so I was quite impressed with the writing of J.A. Jance.  I am glad that I stumbled upon this book at the library, because it was honestly just a chance meeting, one that I wouldn't regret for a moment!
