Review of Love You To Death

Love You to Death
LOVE YOU TO DEATH
by
Shannon K. Butcher

It's been days since reporter Elise McBride has heard from her sister, Ashley. She's convinced Ashley has met with some kind of foul play, especially when she learns that bodies of other missing women have surfaced in and around Chicago--all victims of a brutal serial killer. Convinced her sister is still alive, Elise vows to risk everything to save her...

The last thing ex-cop Trent Brady needs is more blood on his hands. Yet when he catches Elise breaking into her sister's house, full of reckless determination and fear, he knows she needs his help. But just as desire ignites between them, a twisted madman sets his sights on Elise. Hell-bent on possessing her for himself, this psychopath won't rest until he has his perfect woman
.

The words above are theirs. Now for mine. First I need to thank Hachette Book Group for letting me read and review this book.

I started reading yesterday afternoon and finished it this morning. Oh yes I did! I stayed up all night reading it. What does that tell you? That is is a good book? Yes. The characters are interesting? Yes. Well developed? Yes. There are good romantic scenes? Yes, definitely! It is a good mystery? Yes. The story pulls you along? Yes. OK. We get it; it's a good book.

But....

But, what?

Do not start reading this when you get home for work. Wait until Saturday morning. Why? Because if you are where I was at bed time, you will want to get to the happy ending for fear that if you don't, you will have nightmares. The bad guy is like Dr. Frankenstein trying to recreate his love.

This is definitely a romantic thriller; not I would call a "cozy mystery".

You are forewarned!

Interesting.
I have definitely done an all nighter when it comes to books I'm reading. Lol
I'm usually a fast reader no matter the length of the book so It's nice to know someone else with the same passion :D
