A serial killer bent on revenge . . . and striking too close to home.
Teagan O’Rourke has always loved murder mysteries. In her job as a court reporter, she has written official records for dozens of real-life murders. She’s slapped evidence stickers on crime scene photos. She’s listened to hours of chilling testimony. But she’s never known the smell of death. And she never thought she might be a victim.
A young police officer is murdered just inches away from her, and then a man calling himself a serial killer starts leaving Teagan notes, signing each with the name of a different murderer from her favorite mystery novels.
Panicked, Teagan turns to her friend Max Kennedy. Max longs for more than friendship with Teagan, but he fears she’ll never trust someone with a past like his. He wonders how much of God’s “tough love” he can take before he gives up on love completely. And he wonders if he’ll be able to keep Teagan alive long enough to find out.
As Teagan, Max, and Teagan’s police officer father race to track down the elusive killer, they each know they could be the next victim. Desperate to save those she loves, Teagan battles fears that once haunted her in childhood. Nothing seems to stop this obsessed murderer. No matter what she does, he seems to be getting closer.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
It’s been some time since I read a book by the talented Kelly Irvin. I usually read her Amish novels and fall in love instantly. I was excited to learn about this new release, a romantic suspense/thriller, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! I will tell you this right now. It did NOT disappoint! I loved reading every second of this novel and I am excited to read more like from Irvin.
I absolutely loved following along side Teagan and feeling all her emotions like my own. Her story was heart pounding, white knuckling, as I stayed up late into the night turning page after page. My breathing was fast, my heart rate excelarated and my mind was on a roller coaster ride. I loved Max and how he wanted to help her. Her “true crime” serial killer is out to get those Teagan loves and she’s determined to stop it.
If you love the edge of your seat, blood pumping, mind boggling thrills that is an incredibly gripping suspense novel, then absolutely look no further than this novel. Irvin gives her readers a fantastic thrill ride with this one. You’ll be looking over your own shoulder, wondering if it could really happen to you. Don’t wait. Grab your copy of this novel today and see just what I’m talking about. Well done, Kelly Irvin. Well done!
