Murder Notes

Lilah Love Book 1

Lisa Renee Jones definitely knows how to hook a reader.

Lilah Love is a heroine deserving of the title and while she fascinated me I’m not sure I actually liked her. But just because I could never imagine her and I being friends she completely fascinated me with her made profiling skills. I loved seeing how she processed the mystery, how she focussed on clues and how she organized her thoughts and the case in general. It was rather eye opening as parts of her pasts were revealed and I got to witness her interactions with her family and people from her hometown.

I loved the psychological aspects to this mystery and how things are not always as they seem. With this suspense story I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen, but I have never been so angry at an author in my life when the story just ended and I didn’t get my answers. I cannot wait for the next instalment of this story. But I wish I’d had some warning that it was going to end without an actual conclusion. So if this won’t put a damper on things for you I say pick "Murder Notes" up because it really is a fabulous page turner. In fact if it wasn’t for the abrupt ending this would have been a five star read for me.

But when she is called in to consult on a case she is reminded of her past and she finds herself heading back home were she is taunted with notes from the killer. Notes threatening her career and her life. How can she solve the murders and save herself?

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…

As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.

Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

NOR NOTE: This ends in a cliffhanger!
