Book Description

Catching the eye of a delusional serial killer known as Casanova Killer signals the end for certain beautiful young women of San Francisco. True to his name, Casanova offers the women a taste of romance and unparalleled adoration before sending them to a bloody death.

The FBI Special Serial Crimes Division, SSCD, sets a trap for the killer with one of their own as bait. Agent Jerry Forbes pairs with Interpol’s Ethan Barnes to capture Casanova before another woman falls prey to his charms.

Jerry and Ethan soon discover that pretending to be lovers may be more dangerous than catching a killer. Follow their story from the moment they set up house to the abrupt end that Jerry does not see coming.

Is it love or certain death?

3.0 out of 5 stars Story good, bad edit May 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is well written, decent plot. The editing is terrible. Jumps from conversation to different conversation with no notice, making the reader go back to see if we missed something or if the author got distracted.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cassanova Killer July 1, 2013
By Mima
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, the book was free or .99 on Kindle and I feel that I got what I paid for--it seemed like a rip off of Criminal MInds just not written as well. It felt like it was written by a college student. I found the constant mention of the attraction between two lead characters was over done and seemed like a lame romance novel versus a good mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action, Suspense and Romance January 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jerry is going under cover to catch a serial killer who kills women with long brown hair who are in relationships with wealthy men. She falls head over heels for the officer from Interpol who has been tracking the same killer all over Europe.

You can tell that this one of Tallulah Grace's because it is very well written, it includes a trace of the paranormal, there is love at first sight, the men can cook, the bad guy has lots of money, and everyone is very good looking. I have read all of the Grace's books and enjoy the suspense books the most. However, I think she goes a little overboard on the love at first sight thing, it seems inappropriate for two professionals in the middle of a serial killer investigation to act like teenagers. In addition, I don't understand the need to include the paranormal in each of her books; it plays a very small role in the suspense novels and doesn't seem of effect the outcome in any way.

That being said, I highly recommend the any of the suspense novels T. Grace has written. Her writing style reminds me of Tess Gerritsen (Surgeon and the Apprentice).

3.0 out of 5 stars Casanove Killer by Tallulah Grace October 29, 2012
By Spinner
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have only recently started reading Tallulah Grace books. In this book, Tallulah Grace brings together characters from other novels, or tells part of their stories giving the reader a sense of connection and "back story" on people we meet in her other books. I enjoy the sense of familiarity that comes from the tie-in. The plots of these novels are simple and direct, and the story is almost too easy to predict, yet there's a certain suspense throughout. The dialogue is believeable and firmly plants the characters present-day culture.

I don't know if it's because I bought the book for my Kindle, but I find a number of typos in the book that is a distraction to me, as well as some really bad grammar. My suggestion is to find a better editor.

Overall, the story of the Casanova Killer is interesting and believeable, if predictable. I think this writer has a lot of potential for deeper development of her writing skills and will prove to be really good as she matures in the genre and her skill set.

3.0 out of 5 stars o.k. series July 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is in a series of book by this author. I liked the series, but perhaps I burned out on it as I read all of the books in rapid fashion. The coincidence of all the main characters having some type of paranormal affinity is a little hard to fathom.

I have read Fate, Spellbound and Destiny and was so happy when you came out with The Littles and Casanova Killer because I love these characters. Cannot wait to here what happens with Jeri and Ethan.

The book was a free Kindle book. If I'd paid for it I would have felt ripped off. I actually thought it was written by an adolescent practicing writing skills. Character development was so lacking I ended up not caring about any of them. The love story was cheesy and repetetive descriptions of the characters' looks and feelings were used. Boring boring boring. There was so much unnecessary filler in the story I skipped entire sections and never missed a thing. Some readers compared this writer to Patricia Cornwell and Tess Garritsen. That's a HUGE stretch.
The research was poorly done. I never felt I was transported to San Francisco, Carmel, or the cliffs of the pacific coast line, and I've been there many many times. The mental illness of the serial killer also didn't ring true.
The author may have potential, but she is a long way away from the likes of Karin Slaughter, Louise Penny, Erin Hart, Tess Garritsen. This book is a dud.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent writing, but bad editing... January 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author is pretty good. Simplistic writing, but does keep you interested until the end.

Speaking of the end now....The entire book is about this guy...the killer. The thing is, the end is a big let down. Too simple and it was much too easy.

The killer was portrayed as clever, crafty and very intelligent with unlimited resources. The agent knocks him on the head a couple of times with a rock and he's dead and story over?

I was disappointed with how this ended. It's tough when you have build-up throughout a book but the ending comes very swiftly and then abruptly ends. Over.

Oh well.

If I had to guess, Id say this was self-edited. I HOPE it was self edited, because a pro would not have missed the problems in this book.

The author states the Casanova Killer slit his victims throats from right to left, but then during another killing, the agents mention his M.O. as slitting the throats from left to right.
The next time? The writer goes back to right to left again. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! Pick one and stick with it. Family and friends WON'T catch stuff like this. You're a good writer. Get your books professionally edited.

There were so many commas, that there would be enough left over for another two or three books. She describes the killer as having "longish, black, hair".
There are zero commas during all of that my dear. "longish black hair" would only have a comma after hair, if there's another descriptive word following that. This happened quite often.

Many, many sentences missing words.

Had this been edited properly, I would have given a higher rating. This gal can write, so it's too bad, there were so many mistakes. Good story though.

More About the Author

Raised in the foothills of the mystical Blue Ridge Mountains, I attribute my love of beautiful landscapes and fascination with all things paranormal to my environment. The settings and characters in my novels reflect my appreciation for natural beauty as well as a desire to explore the what-if's of things unseen. Throw in a degree in Psychology paired with a strong interest in the workings of the criminally insane mind and you have a breeding ground for a psychological thriller.

Becoming an author was not a conscious decision; I've always been a writer. Channeling a passion for story-telling into my livelihood required a giant leap of faith, one that I'll never regret as I truly love what I do.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy antiquing, bead-weaving and sharing time with my incredible daughter and our two spoiled-rotten cats.
