Lucy Kincaid has been waiting to hear if she’s been accepted to the FBI training academy for weeks. When she gets the news it isn’t good. Her boyfriend Sean Rogan can’t stand to see Lucy so distraught so he pulls her into his current case. RCK Security was asked as a family favor to look into the disappearance of a young woman named Kristen. As soon as Lucy looks into the case she sees things that take her back to the vicious attack against her six years ago. It appears Kristen has been involved in some stuff online that may have gotten her in trouble. The case leads Lucy and Sean to New York.
FBI Agent Suzanne Madeaux is on the trail of the so called Cinderella Strangler in New York. The serial killer targets women at illegal underground parties and then suffocates them. Lucy and Sean’s search for Kristen collides with Agent Madeaux’s hunt for a killer. Agent Madeaux isn’t too keen on Lucy and Sean butting into her case but she cannot deny the evidence overlaps. Lucy and Sean may be searching for her only witness. Lucy isn’t about to step aside when she’s certain Kristen may be a witness and, therefore, in danger from the killer. Lucy is determined to fight for the victims even if it means pissing everyone off and ruining her chances of ever getting her dream job or keeping her man.
Kiss Me, Kill Me is a sleek and savvy thriller. Lucy Kincaid is back and even though she’s down she still kicks butt! I love how Sean’s character progressed in Kiss Me, Kill Me. He really has a chance to explore his deepening feelings for Lucy. I absolutely love this couple because they are so real and on a level playing field. Allison Brennan’s books aren’t about the man saving his woman. Lucy is quite capable of saving herself! Lucy and Sean are on equal ground. The respect that they both have for each other is definitely evident in Kiss Me, Kill Me. I love the way Lucy’s mind works. She is super smart and can hone into the littlest thing at a crime scene. I think I’m in awe of Lucy. She definitely epitomizes what I think of as a survivor who is determined to make life better for others. She appears perfect but still has fears that can disrupt her life, however, she tackles them head on.
Ms. Brennan has penned another killer mystery with Kiss Me, Kill Me. I love that this story is so completely different from Love Me To Death. The characters are awesome. Some were endearing and others repulsive but they all kept me glued to the pages. This mystery has many twists and turns that keep you guessing until the end. All of the questions lead up to one spectacular finish! Kiss Me, Kill Me is a prodigious suspenseful drama!
