“In this gripping sequel to Cut and Run…Burton delivers an irresistible, tension-filled plot with plenty of twists. The characters resonate with an intimate, small-town feel, and the tender romance between Macy and Mike complements the plot nicely. Lovers of romantic thrillers won’t be disappointed.” —Publishers Weekly

The plot revolves around Macy and Nevada hunting a killer who stalks, rapes, and then strangles his victims. As a woman this was often hard for me to stomach, and I don't think this book would be appropriate for anyone who has ever been violated. There are graphic details about the assaults of these young ladies too, most of whom were just teens at the time. But even though the subject matter wasn't ideal, I was still able to immerse myself in Burton's storytelling. There didn't seem to be a lot of surprises or twists and turns though and the handful I suppose were meant to be that way I usually had figured out. Even the killer didn't come as a surprise since I suspected it was one of two people. In the end I thought the book was slightly better than okay, but barely. Maybe my expectations were too high but for some reason I wasn't entirely satisfied.
Pages & Kindle Locations: The story itself contained 337 pages & ended at location 5046 on my kindle device.
I loved Macy’s character; she was strong, resilient, determined, kind-hearted and dedicated to her job. I really enjoyed her working with Sheriff Nevada and their interaction throughout the story. There were plenty of tense, suspenseful moments as well as action, some light-hearted moments, and romance. I liked how Macy and Nevada were able to compartmentalize their work and personal relationships, with neither overshadowing the main plot of the book. I also enjoyed Deputy Brooke Bennett’s character and think it would be awesome if she had her own book. It seems like there is more than meets the eye with her and she would have an interesting story to tell.
*Many thanks to the publisher for the advanced copy of this read I received thru NetGalley.
The emphasis of the book is on the suspense and we are taken on an exciting thrill ride. You may think you know who the bad guy is....but think again! This story kept me completely engaged until the satisfying conclusion. Thank you Netgalley for allowing me to read an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
There's lots of action and many surprises, but the characters were flat and mostly unlikable. Too many subplots clouded the storyline with too many details making it harder to keep reading. It almost felt as if Mary Burton didn't really like writing this one.
The core of the story starts well but then gets lost. If you're a Burton lover, these problems might be forgivable and overlooked. However, this book didn't motivate me to continue the series. Sadly, there was no real depth or added value.
My biggest challenges came from the level of detail over trivial and unimportant things for most of the book, and then how much magically gets solved or tidied up in the last two chapters, like Burton gave up trying and just wanted to get finished. Even the love scenes were bland compared to previous novels.
Wanted to like it, but found it lacking. Perhaps the author deserves a Mulligan on this one. I'm hoping Burton's future works don't follow the same basic story and structure. Almost felt I'd already read it several time before---caught in a perpetual "Groundhog Day" experience.
The Audible narration was well done and appreciated, highlighting some of the book's better parts.
