    All The Pretty Faces

    by Rita Herron

    Josie DuKane is on shaky ground. Having narrowly escaped the notorious Bride Killer, she penned a tell-all memoir that dug up a town’s dark past. Now the book is being made into a movie, and Josie must visit the very place that will trigger an avalanche of unwanted memories—Graveyard Falls. On the heels of her arrival, she receives a gruesome photograph of a dead woman with talon marks carved into her face. And worse, Josie just might be the next victim.

    Torn between guilt, justice, and revenge, Special Agent Dane Hamrick will do anything to find the man who brutally murdered his sister. When he realizes the recent tragedies in Graveyard Falls bear an uncanny resemblance to her death, he volunteers to spearhead the investigation. But doing so means teaming up with Josie.

    Nothing prepares him for the feelings the beautiful, tough woman evokes. As the body count rises and the suspect pool widens, Josie and Dane must put aside their growing attraction to run down the killer who devastated both their lives.

    A killer who seems determined to destroy all the pretty faces…

    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    All the Pretty Girls by Rita Herron is a 2016 Montlake publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This second book in the Graveyard Falls series begins with the brutal murder of a young woman, her face marred with talon marks. This murder has Dane on high alert because of the similarities between this death and his sister’s unsolved murder.

    To complicate matters further, Josie DuKane, the sole survivor of the “Bride Killer” has written a book about the case, which is now being made into a movie. As a result, Graveyard Falls is being visited by a film crew and actors and actresses vying for parts in the film.

    To put the cherry on the cake, Josie receives a picture of the murder victim on her phone, posed with a Mitzi doll. Feeling as though she could be partly responsible, or somehow connected to the case, Josie insists on helping Dane, despite his strong reservations.

    Is this case connected to Dane’s sister? Is Josie a potential target?

    This book is a super creepy serial killer suspense novel with a little romance between Dane and Josie running in the background. The story is a little edgy, and the plot is certainly unique, with several twists and turns along the way.

    The romance is a little forced, with Dane being entirely too uptight most of the time, but he does come around and redeems himself nicely.

    Josie’s character has a chance to flourish in this installment and I felt she did an admirable job with the case, and am happy to see her finally experience a little peace and happiness.

    Overall, this is a solid romantic suspense novel, a quick read, but one that keeps you guessing and engaged throughout.

    4 stars
