After reading She'll Never Know last weekend and being upset that the main mystery of the serial killer was not solved, I immediately placed She'll Never Live on hold. It came in yesterday, and I started reading it last night. I sat down this evening to read for about 15 minutes before I took my shower, and an hour later I was turning the last pages. It was a good read and I give it an A-.
Her days are numbered by a sadistic madman who calls himself the Bloodsucker. All summer, he's been preying on blonde-haired, blue-eyed women in the small resort town of Albany Beach- abducting them then draining them of their blood.
Business is down. Suspicion is up. And fear runs rampant. With people's livelihoods-and lives- at stake, police chief Claire Drummond has her work cut out for her. A single mom with a rebellious teen daughter, she finds herself leaning on councilman Graham Simpson for support. But it's hard to trust her own heart when everyone is a suspect.
Meanwhile, the Bloodsucker spins a web to reel in his next victim. He has set his sights high- on Claire. And he knows the perfect way to get to her... through her daughter...
I thought for sure I knew who the killer was while reading the previous book, She'll Never Know, and had to find out if I was correct. Well, I wasn't... and actually I was pretty far off. Ms. Morgan does a fantastic job of throwing red herrings and leaving the reader's head spinning trying to tie the clues together. There is a bit of romance thrown into the story, and while I generally don't enjoy romantic suspense, Ms. Morgan does a great job with it, focusing mainly on the suspense and only a tad bit amount of romance. While Claire isn't the most lovely character, and Ashley is difficult to like at times, I was rooting them on throughout the story. Ms. Morgan has quickly become a dependable author, one who I know if I pick up a book by her, I am sure to get a quick and enjoyable read. I highly recommend her if you like suspense books.
I am not sure if I am going to read another library book or try one of my own. I have tomorrow off but do want to get my laundry and cleaning done. I just found out that my new job starts next week, right when my summer school position is ending. I am worried about this, since for some reason I haven't discovered the secret to being in two places at once, and after that it is back to school full time. Ugh... I so don't want summer to be over! So this weekend, along with a bridal shower I have to attend, I plan on relaxing and getting some things in order here along with reading some great books. I hope everyone is also reading an enjoyable book and has a GREAT Friday! Happy Reading!
