It’s been ten years since Sasha Keaton left her West Virginia hometown... since she escaped the twisted serial killer known as the Groom. Returning to help run her family inn means being whole again, except for one missing piece. The piece that falls into place when Sasha’s threatened—and FBI agent Cole Landis vows to protect her the way he couldn’t a decade ago.
First one woman disappears; then another, and all the while, disturbing calling cards are left for the sole survivor of the Groom’s reign of terror. Cole’s never forgiven himself for not being there when Sasha was taken, but he intends to make up for it now... because under the quirky sexiness Cole first fell for is a steely strength that only makes him love Sasha more.
But someone is watching. Waiting. And Sasha’s first mistake could be her last.
I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I’m VERY selective in my romantic suspense reading choices as it’s not one of my favorite genres, but since JLA *is* one of my favorite authors, I knew I had to pick this one up. It’s definitely different than most of her other books and, while I thoroughly enjoy her contemporary romance and fantasy/sci fi offerings, I enjoyed seeing just how twisted her mind is, too. Till Death definitely messed with my head at times. I really shouldn’t be surprised, though. It’s not the first time one of her titles did that to me. (*cough* The stalker storyline in Fall With Me *cough*)
I love losing myself in a good book and that’s exactly what I did with Till Death. I was so wrapped up in the storyline, enjoying the second chance romance and trying to figure out who the killer was that I didn’t highlight or flag one single line of the book. That’s pretty rare for me, to be honest. But, I digress. Addictive. Page-turner. That’s what I found Till Death to be. I loved the second chance fate was granting Sasha and Cole every bit as much as I enjoyed the mystery and suspense. The chapters from The Groom’s POV were super creepy and I loved it.
Sasha and Cole were both wonderful characters. I kept putting myself in Sasha’s shoes, trying to imagine what it would be like to be home again, after what she went through the first time. She’s a strong one, that’s for sure. I know I couldn’t have done it. I’d have run far and fast and NOTHING would’ve made me go back. Ever. But, I guess if she never went back, she’d never had gotten another chance with Cole. That would’ve been a damn shame, too, since these two were SO VERY perfect for each other.
Till Death definitely isn’t my usual cup of tea, but it showed me that it’s good to take a break from my usual bookish picks and try something new every now and then. Of course, if Jen writes it, I’m going to read it. That shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.
Do you read romantic suspense?
Have a recommendation for me?
