J.J. Graves has seen a lot of dead bodies in her line of work...
She's not only in the mortuary business, but she's also the coroner for King George County, Virginia. When a grisly murder is discovered in the small town of Bloody Mary, it's up to J.J. and her best friend, Detective Jack Lawson, to bring the victim justice.
The murders are piling up...
So when a popular mystery writer shows up on J.J.'s doorstep with plans of writing his new book about the Bloody Mary Serial Killer, J.J. has to decide if he might be going above and beyond the call of duty to create the spine tinglers he's so well known for. The sexual attraction between them only clouds the issue.
And passions are rising...
J.J and Jack discover each victim had a shocking secret, and the very foundation of J.J.'s life is in danger of crumbling when it turns out she’s harboring secrets of her own—secrets that make her a perfect target in a deadly game.
This is a different type of romance that I’m used to reading, and I was not disappointed! There are definitely mysteries, confusion for JJ. Poor woman can’t catch a break. Love is within her grasp but taken away. I can’t wait to read how she recovers from the turmoil she endured.55
Couldn’t put it down.55
So. Good. This is the 40th book I’ve read this year so far and it’s definitely in my top 3. Twists and turns galore and just the right touch of romance to make it even more interesting. Now I’m hooked and have to finish the series!55
I totally enjoyed this book especially the two main characters. J.J. Graves reminds me of a cross between Kay Scarpetta (authored by Patria Cornwell) and Stephanie Plum (authored by Janet Evonovich). The story had just the right amount of humor. Highly recommend this book and series.55
Excellent book. Sometimes you know who the murderer is before it comes close to the end of the book, but I never would have guessed on this book.55
I love it when an author can write a great book and inject humor into the story. This is a page turner and I could not put it down. Great read.55
Enjoyed reading this & was caught way off by the ending55
Amazing book and series. Highly recommend reading all books! I’m addicted to this series, I can’t stop reading and I’m all caught up with the 11 books 🤷🏻♀️😅😍55
