Torn between guilt, justice, and revenge, Special Agent Dane Hamrick will do anything to find the man who brutally murdered his sister. When he realizes the recent tragedies in Graveyard Falls bear an uncanny resemblance to her death, he volunteers to spearhead the investigation. But doing so means teaming up with Josie.
Nothing prepares him for the feelings the beautiful, tough woman evokes. As the body count rises and the suspect pool widens, Josie and Dane must put aside their growing attraction to run down the killer who devastated both their lives.
A killer who seems determined to destroy all the pretty faces…
OK, I’ll admit that I made a half-assed buying decision on this one. I didn’t even read the blurb. I downloaded it because I saw that it was written by a bestselling author, and...I liked the cover. There, I admitted that I’m totally shallow. It has a pretty cover, OK??? Don’t judge.
But once I got past the cover, I was less than blown away, which I found surprising. The writing was great. The story flowed beautifully. There was a totally WTF plot twist at the end that I loved. But the main characters? Yawn.
Josie is smart and kinda brave (I guess), but a little whiny and too goody-goody for my liking. Dane is robotic. He’s a justice-seeking machine, and I never got any real sense of why he loved Josie (other than the fact that she’s perfect in every way, of course. Seriously, she probably runs a rescue for lonely unicorns and poops rainbows, for Christ’s sake).
I most likely won’t read the other books in the Graveyard Falls series. Although, they do have really pretty covers...
Full disclosure: I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
