First in the series,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Die for Me (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the first novel in Karen Rose's series. I think the author got the two titles mixed up though because This book should have been titled "Scream for me" and her second novel should have been "Die for me", but they are the opposite.
Die for Me is a romantic thriller with plenty of twists to the plot and character development. For myself, it was easy to figure out who the killer was, but then I read one to two books a day. I just don't always get the chance to write reviews for all of them. Not that this book wasn't good, but I almost never give out 5 stars unless the author stumps me on the reveal or keeps twisting and turning the plot so much that I find it more than just suspenseful.
I'm going to omit the synopsis on this one because so many other reviewers have written excellent ones. The only thing I will say is that "Die for Me" is written more like a thriller with graphic death scenes than the second book "Scream for Me." If you as the reader find this one hard to stomach, than the next book will be far more tame. If you enjoy more of the details in the killings than the next book might not appease you as much. This is a thriller where the second in the series is a police procedural. Both have a romantic sub-plot but not heavy romance if you are into that.
I don't know if this review helped anyone or just confused them more. So, I will get to the point of all my reviews.
Is the book worth buying?
Yes, if you enjoy a suspenseful thriller about serial killers and light romance thrown in. Just note that this book is a little on the wordy side and some readers may feel the need to jump over much of the tedious descriptions and dialog that is not relevant to the story-line. This is the first of this authors books that I have found it to be that way. The second in the series is just the opposite. If the second book did not use one of the secondary characters in this book for the next, you would not even think they were written by the same author. Happy reading.
