Summary

New York Times best-selling author Lisa Renee Jones presents the first part of her heart-pounding thriller series of a woman's secrets - and a past that's about to come out of hiding....

As an FBI profiler, it's Lilah Love's job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface - the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head - Lilah's instincts tell her it's the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core. 

Thrust into a troubled past she's tried to shut the door on, Lilah's back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord's son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah's own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

Full of mystery and intrigue!

5 Crazy Ass Must Listen Stars!!!!!

Two people made this story. First, Lisa Renee Jones with her superb writing and storylines that get your mind spinning. And second, Grace Grant with her amazing narration.
LRJ continually writes stories that just draw me in. I'm not one to veer toward a murder mystery but when I saw that LRJ newest release was available via Romance Package, I snatched this audio treat right up and dove right in. All I had to see was "Lisa Renee Jones" and "new release" and I was all over it. Then imagine my delight when I saw Grace Grant was the narrator. She has quickly become a favorite of mine with her work on the Mount Trilogy and Savage Trilogy by Meghan March. She just has this was of drawing you in to the story, making you so damn comfortable, and having you ignore the outside world. She brings the characters to life and performs the narration in such a way that it feels like your tossed in that world. This was no different.
Lilah Love is wrapped up in some crazy stuff. So many questions. So many twists. None of my predictions have panned out so LRJ is keeping me on my toes.
I'm eager to get my hands on Murder Girl next. I just wish it was sooner than July. Oh well, I'll be listening to this again to hold me over until then.

Cliffhanger!!

I hate it when a book ends in a cliffhanger ending. I felt so many issues were left unfinished with this story. The premise of a FBI agent having a relationship with the head of a crime family was intriguing. Add in the agent’s dysfunctional family with political aspirations and it muddled more of the story. Some details in this book were gruesome. Not as much romance to the book as I anticipated. I am curious as to how the story continues.

Loved it!

This was my first time reading this author and first time listening to a performance by this narrator. Story first: LOVED it!!!!! I didn’t want it to end was sucked in to the sassy of Lilah and the way she thinks and interacts. She is 100% fully developed and it was easy to picture all aspects of her throughout the entire story. So much so that even her nightmares could be felt! Lisa Renee Jones has instantly become a go to author for me and I am starting a new listen tomorrow!

New narrator for me as well, and I limited my stars to 4 because it too a few chapters to adjust to the style of her male voices. It seemed to take a while to have the male voice(s) seem authentic and real. As for Lilah, she was brilliant and became her immediately and once I adjusted to her take narrating male voices I became fully immersed in the story she was telling. She will be added to my list of narrators to try again without a doubt!

Good story and narration!

I don’t believe I have read Lisa Renee Jones but romantic suspense books are my absolute favorite!! I really enjoy the way Murder Notes just goes full force like a locomotive! The plot is great and develops slowly... all while slowly lining up the pieces and players. I’m fascinated with the way Miss Jones feeds us clues. I’m a serious addict with FBI Files and criminal shows and this series just combined reading (listening) with my favorite shows!

Now there are a ton of characters, and I’ll be completely honest, there were a few that I never really had a grasp on who they were. So if you listen, play close attention because I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of characters tossed at me.

The narrator, Madeleine Maby is precisely how I envision Lilah Love. She’s a bit monotone and aloft but when she speaks to those she loves, her emotions teeter a bit and bare themselves in her voice. While she’s normally cool and collected Kane can pull the emotions from her. It’s honestly one of the best character developments I’ve heard with a narrator. I wouldn’t have minded more emotions, more voice and tone variations bit I don’t think she would have been true to the character if she did.

Murder Notes

Only listened to about 15 minutes of the book and it was filled with filthy words.. a good writer should be able to write without that kind of language. I am deleting this book.

cliff hanger

I have no problem with series of books, in fact I usually enjoy them. This story is intriguing with a bit of humor thrown in. BUT unlike most series it doesn't end at a good place. It literally leaves you hanging without even one mystery unraveled. Lame.

it's ok

I really wanted to like this story but it never "grabbed" me. Plus there were alot of people to keep track of while listening.

over the top

I wanted to like this book, I really did. But I couldn't. The writing was scattered, the lead character way too frazzled, and too many f bombs where they added nothing to the character or the story.

end of a paragraph, or end of chapter...

While I enjoy many book series, I think that it is pure greed that ends a book in the manner in which this one ended. Why can't you at least finish a scene?
I won't be purchasing any other titles from this author.

CLIFF HANGER

It didn't end. Cliff hangers hard to follow when time is not on your side. But still enjoyed.
