Overview

San Francisco Bay Area reporter Gabriella Giovanni has finally got it all together: a devoted and loving boyfriend, Detective Sean Donovan; a beautiful little girl with him; and her dream job as the cops' reporter for the Bay Herald. But her success has been hard-won and has left her with debilitating paranoia. When a string of young co-eds starts to show up dead with suspicious Biblical verses left on their bodies—the same verses that the man she suspects kidnapped and murdered her sister twenty years ago had sent to her—she begins to question if the killer is trying to send her a message.

It is not until evil strikes Gabriella's own family that her worst fears are confirmed. As the clock begins to tick, every passing hour means the difference between life and death to those Gabriella loves...

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings A crime reporter and a detective are dating and have a child together and with the history in the crime reporter's past, they both live on edge and always looking over their shoulder. With a young daughter, they have put a lot in place to keep their family safe. Of course, there is no story without something happening - so tragedy strikes and their world and large Italian family are turned upside down. As they don't spoil what happens in the synopsis, I won't spoil here either. What I will say is the pacing in this book was fantastic. It seems to be on the shorter side (I read it digitally) and in my first sitting I got about 60 pages and then finished it in the second ending. Once the tragedy strikes, you can not even try to put this down. The pacing gets you and I loved it, I was glad that once the real action started, there was no stopping.

Everything is pretty obvious from the early pages, so there's not a lot of mystery. However, the interesting characters, well developed plot, & fast pace will provide ample entertainment. by aj west

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book. It was a fast paced read that I really enjoyed. The characters are well developed (I especially enjoy the protagonist' s family). The story is intense. I highly recommend this book and anxiously await the next one!

5 Stars! Blessed Are Those Who Mourn by Kristi Belcamino, will be available Sept. 29, 2015. I was asked to read an advance copy of this and offer my unbiased review. Here it is: Kristi Belcamino has once again let us into the world of San Francisco Bay area reporter Gabriella Giovanni with a story that takes us deeper than ever before. Deep, into the evolution of the relationship between Gabriella and her boyfriend, Detective Sean Donovan. Deeper, into their new roles as parents to a daughter who is their entire world. Deepest, into the collision between her past, their new life in the present, and a string of murdered local women. This book will have your emotions swirling and your pulse pounding. As usual, her Bay Area settings lend a generous atmosphere. Her descriptions of Ella's family give this book a spirit that imbues the novel with a quiet warmth and humanity. For an author who has delivered four books in less that a year and a half, Kristi Belcamino shows no sign of slowing down, instead she is building the intensity and emotions in each story as she goes. I will be waiting to see where she takes Gabriella, Sean and her readers next.
