Summary

In a town full of secrets, the truth won’t stay buried....

When a girl’s body is discovered in a park in the sleepy Massachusetts town of Oakhurst, local detective Jo is shocked to the core. Because the girl is the second innocent victim to turn up dead in three days. And just like the first, a tarot card has been left by the body. The meaning of the card: betrayal

After uncovering a series of threatening messages targeting the girl, a student at the university, and the first victim, her teacher, Jo thinks she’s locked the killer in her crosshairs. The primary suspect is a volatile ex-military student with an axe to grind for failing grades, and the frightened town is out for his blood. But the next day, a much-loved member of the community is found dead in her home, a tarot card in her mail. There’s no clear motive to link her death to the others, and the message on the card this time is even stranger: domestic bliss

With a fourth body and card appearing the following day, Jo knows she’s running out of time to crack the code and bring the killer to justice. And the pressure only gets worse with heart-breaking news about Jo’s father forcing her to choose between helping her family heal or the victims’ families get justice. Can Jo find the twisted murderer sending the town into a panic before another life is lost? Or this time, will the dangerous killer find her first? 

A completely addictive detective thriller that will keep you guessing into the early hours of the morning. If you love Kendra Elliot, Melinda Leigh, and Lisa Regan you’ll love Taken to the Grave.

Horrible Narrator

The tone and pattern (or cadence) of the narrator makes it difficult to listen to. I can't get past the second chapter. I wish I could get my money back.

Not really my favorite.

I enjoyed the first book in the series, but this follow up was mediocre. I am sorry to say, because I would have liked to have liked it. The first book, while a little more “predictable,” had charisma and lots of fun details. In the second book, I didn’t really empathize with any of the characters or want to “root” for them. I understand that “second book syndrome” is a real thing and hope that book 3 will have more to sink my teeth into.

Kind of boring but good story

Ugh where do I start. I started reading this book three times. I couldn’t get into it as much as I liked Dancing girls and even that one was a little boring and slow for me. However, this book was just too long and I felt as if it dragged. We get to know Jo and I felt like it was fluff writing. It was excellent back story but it was def fluff to this story. I feel like I want to be connected to the characters and feel for their lives or fear for their death but I don’t care for the any of the characters except for detective Jo. I’ve noticed that every one is referred to by their last name except for Jo and in book 1 it confused me a little but now it’s sort of inconsistent for me anyway. The topic although plausible was boring. The reasoning behind the kills made sense but to get to the real killers was way too long. In the show the first 48 the detectives had more leads and information than Jo did in her career. I was solving the case before she and her team pieced it together.
The author’s writing is awesome.
I would like to see Jo have a little more action or a near to death experience. She’s a police officer I hate to believe that her life hasn’t been threaten in the 20 plus years in the force.

No nearly as good

This second novel can’t touch her first. Not even close. She may need to spend more time writing quality rather than “cranking them out.”
