Book Review: All In

All In (The Naturals #3) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes 

All In (The Naturals, #3)Three casinos. Three bodies. Three days.

After a string of brutal murders in Las Vegas, Cassie Hobbes and the Naturals are called in to investigate. But even with the team's unique profiling talents, these murders seem baffling: unlike many serial killers, this one uses different methods every time. All of the victims were killed in public, yet the killer does not show up on any tape. And each victim has a string of numbers tattooed on their wrist. Hidden in the numbers is a code—and the closer the Naturals come to unraveling the mystery, the more perilous the case becomes.

Meanwhile, Cassie is dealing with an equally dangerous and much more painful mystery. For the first time in years, there's been a break in her mother's case. As personal issues and tensions between the team mount, Cassie and the Naturals will be faced with impossible odds—and impossible choices.

All In really got my mind in wonders, how does Jennifer come up with this kind of stuff or much less find the research? Jennifer created a very complex case for the Naturals, I was kind of right about how each book would tie in with one of the characters in each book. This time it was Sloane who can spout tons of statistical facts in the most random times.

Cassie is now dealing with her own personal agenda, the FBI has information regarding her mother's murder but even Cassie can't face the dark memories that haunts her. Can Cassie be ready to finally be able to closed her mom's unsolved murder?

Apart from the great details to make a great case, some of the other characters like Lia, Michael and Dean were kind of absent. They were present but they became more behind the scene than be front and center like they been in the other books.

Although Cassie and Dean have established an "dating" status, there wasn't much going on between them and they were in Las Vegas of all places! I get that neither of them really know what it means to date but come on how about a little hand holding?? Maybe even a kiss???? There wasn't much going on between them.

The dynamic that Sloane has made me feel that she was someone who thrives to be wanted, to be loved but she never got any of that which might be why she's always closed off with her personality because she was ignore. This case became a little more personal for Sloane, but unfortunately I can't say because it's one of the main key component in the book.

I give All In 4.5 Cat's Paws, as usual I love Jennifer's intrigue writing however it felt like some of the characters became at a standstill.
