# Book Review: Widow's Web by Jennifer Estep
Saturday, February 2, 2013 / permalink

I used to murder people for money, but these days it’s more of a survival technique.
Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town.
Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power. Salina also has an intimate history with my lover, Owen Grayson, and now that she’s back in town, she thinks he’s hers for the taking.
Salina’s playing a mysterious game that involves a shady local casino owner with a surprising connection to Owen. But they call me the Spider for a reason. I’m going to untangle her deadly scheme, even if it leaves my love affair hanging by a thread

I think I probably should have taken a break between reading the last book and this one. I was actually not as impressed with this one as I was with the others. Gin is having some problems with Owen, mainly the fact that Owen’s ex-girlfriend Salina is in town and she wants revenge on everyone who watch her father get murdered by Mab. Gin is hired by Phillip Kincaid to cater his party on a boat, but find out she was really just there to protect Owen’s sister Eva.  Salina is out for Phillip and wants Owen back.

I liked this book, but I just felt it was off character for Owen to act the way he did. I just was really upset with him. In the end of the book especially. Like I said I think I probably should have taken a break between this book and the last, because this one slugged along for me. The conclusion of the last book was just so good, it closed a lot loops that I felt were open. This one just created a new one. That is okay, but I just hope that this doesn’t turn into the Anita Blake books.
