    10. Spiegoski has a degree in Criminal Justice and it definitely shows, I found Lily's investigations to be intriguing at times and definitely detailed. This could have been something really good, but it didn't end up working for me because there were too many details and too much description about things that didn't add depth to the plot, character, or setting in an interesting way. There was a lot of 'telling' instead of 'showing' in general. Large information dumps were difficult to get through, [...]

    11. Aside from the well-paced plot, I do think that the dialogue could use some work. They lack conviction. The ending was also a bit of a cliché for me, however, seeing how this is Spiegoski’s debut novel, I’m willing to let it slide. All in all, The Fisherman’s Lily was a satisfying read.Full review on Priscilla and her Books
