BLOG TOUR - Her Dying Kiss


She wakes to the dawn light streaming through the window and rolls over to whisper good morning to her fiancé. But panic floods her veins. His side of the bed is empty and cold. Blood trails towards the open door. All trace of him is gone…

It’s been one month since 
Detective Katie Scott’s fiancé, Chad, went missing without a trace. Devastated Katie is still working tirelessly day and night to track down the love of her life, barely sleeping and chasing every new lead. But now the case has gone cold.

When the body of beautiful
 Gina Hartfield is discovered among the pine needles in a clearing on Lookout Ridge, Katie swallows her own pain and knows she must focus on finding Gina’s killer. The young woman was found with a pink velvet blindfold shading the hollows where her eyes had been removed. Katie is certain she is chasing a sadistic individual who will soon take another life…

But the autopsy reveals Gina’s body was washed before being abandoned, leaving no trace of evidence behind. And with no witnesses to Gina’s disappearance, the women of Pine Valley are terrified to go out alone.

Desperately combing the crime scene, when Katie sees a newspaper article about her previous cases pinned to a nearby tree, she is certain Gina’s murder is personal. Then tire tracks found in the forest are matched to a truck seen following Chad in the days leading up to his disappearance. 
Katie’s blood runs cold.

Is there a link between Chad’s disappearance and Gina’s brutal murder, 
or is the killer playing a twisted game with Katie? Can she find out the truth before they take another life?

A totally gripping serial killer thriller for fans of Lisa Regan, Rachel Caine and Melinda Leigh. Prepare to stay up all night with this nail-biting rollercoaster ride from USA Today and Amazon bestseller Jennifer Chase!

“She wondered how much heartache a person could take.” 

Going back to work was difficult for Detective Katie Scott. It has been over a month since her fiancé Chad disappeared without a trace. This left Katie broken. Along with her partner McGavin, as well as her canine partner, Cisco, Katie is working to investigate what appears to be a copycat serial killer case. She struggles to remain focused on the case, with constant thoughts of Chad. 

Katie plows forward on the case of a murdered young woman. The manner of death was brutal and Katie is determined to find the killer before another life is lost. Details begin to surface during Katie’s investigation, and she begins to wonder if this case is connected to Chad’s disappearance. 

What a thrilling book! I literally could not put it down. While Katie’s case was compelling, the mystery of Chad's disappearance kept me on tenterhooks. Now I find that I almost cannot wait for the next book in this stellar series, especially as the ending left me wanting for more. 

Many thanks Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
