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.

2.0 out of 5 stars this is part of a trilogy! February 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was interesting. But I hate not being warned that the book can't stand by itself. Basically, this is the first of 3 books so now you have to suffer through another 500 pages or so to find an ending, which of course, is a happy ending. If not for this miserable marketing strategy, I may grade this book higher. It would be completely different I had known in advance.

This book is well written but that's where it ends for me. Graphic details of a serial killer's methods do not appeal to me.
I would not reccommend this book as graphic books on serial killers are not for my taste.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is this supposed to be a thriller? March 16, 2014
By Ragne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well, if this was supposed to be a thriller, it failed miserably. Grace over-explains the motives, and the final scene with the killer, was a huge disappointment, as it wasn't really exciting or thrilling. It seems to be a romance, with a criminal story as a sort of bi-story.
The characters didn't seem plausible at all. As usual, the two main characters are beautiful beyond belief. The woman, Jerry, says that her good looks has made her life hell, but still insists on making herself as beautiful as she can by her clothes and make-up.
Speaking of make-up; it seems nobody in the book can understand that it is possible to be sexy and beautiful without it. That speaks volumes about what I very much dislike about our community.

There were quite a few spelling mistakes, and at times, it seemed like Grace used big words that she doesn't quite understand, or know how and when to use. It is always irritating to me when I notice them, as English is not my primary language. It makes me question the writer's intelligence, and takes me away from the story.

The book was a disappointment. I had thought it would be a crime-mystery, but turned out to be pure chick-lit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked May 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I stumbled upon Tallulah Grace by chance and I am sooo glad I did. All of her books are well written and you never know where the storyline is going to take you. Her books have all been page turners for me and I love that she uses the same group of characters throughout her novels.

unsure if I want to buy anymore of this author after reading Book 1 of SSCD.

Should be 2 1/2 stars because it is somewhere between 'don't like it' and 'it's ok'. Read more

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.
