Meet the Author

Leslie Rule was born on a dark and stormy night in Seattle, Washington. She is an animal lover and, because of that, has been a vegetarian since 1975. She grew up in a family of writers and from the time she was three years old, she knew she would become an author. She has written a number of books and dozens of articles for national magazines, including Reader�s Digest.
Leslie wrote Whispers from the Grave in 1993, when there was no such thing as email, and few people had cell phones. As she set the scene for Jenna�s world, Leslie tried to imagine what things might be like in the year 2070.
She thought that, perhaps, by that time, people would keep photos in their computers. She couldn�t have guessed that that would be the norm, just a decade later. Now she wonders if tune chips and feather fabric may one day be a reality!
When Leslie was a preteen, school dress codes demanded that girls wear skirts or dresses. She was in the seventh grade when several of the older girls protested and wore jeans to school. Just as in Whispers from the Grave, school officials gave in, and the dress code was changed.
Leslie likes to draw from her life and from her imagination when she writes fiction. Her book, Kill Me Again, is written in the same style as Whispers from the Grave. In addition, Leslie has four nonfiction books of ghost stories, and one nonfiction book of angel stories.

I got this book while going on a bus trip to Canada, and I read the whole thing in one night. I found it very suspenseful, exciting, and the characters likeable. And, like most books, it doesn't get cheesy or profoundly dumb towards the ending. It's a very solid novel. It involves a girl who moves back to her mother's hometown after her mother loses her job. After that, things start to happen to her, which leads her to belive she is the reincarnation of her aunt, who ran away years ago. But, she knows she is dead and that the killer may be after her now.

This must be one of the shortest synopses ever, but yet it still intrigued me enough to request a review copy of this book through Netgalley. Let me start by saying that Kill Me Again did not dissapoint in the slightest. When I first started this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought this was going to be a ghost story, or at least a story about a girl who dreams about a past life. While that’s partly true, this novel is so much more as well. Alexis travels back to the town where her Mom grew up. But as soon as she arrives in town, it looks eerily familiar, as if she’d been there before. According to her Mom, that’s normal because she went there once when she was a toddler. Eerily enough, while she was there, Alexis stumbled upon the body of a teenage girl, who drowned in a pond in the park. But as Alexis spends more and more time in her hometown, she begins to suspect the teenage girl drowning wasn’t a drowning at all. And as for her aunt Nan, Alexis isn’t entirely convinced Nan left home all those years ago. Then another girl ends up missing, and eventually Alexis is the one to find her body in the same body she found that other drowned girl over a decade ago. As she begins to remember things she couldn’t possibly remember, Alexis grows convinced of two things. She’s the reincarnation of Nan, and she didn’t run away from home – she was murdered. And she wasn’t the only one…A serial killer is loose in the town of Oxford, and Alexis is the only one who can figure out who it is. Before it’s too late and she becomes his next target. The author does a great job of describing the town of Oxford to the readers. I especially liked the “drowned” city, a part of the city flooded by water which now rests in an underground lake. I really enjoyed Kill Me Again. All of the topics, from the romance subplot to a serial killer on the loose to reincarnation intrigued me. I was a bit dissapointed that ghosts didn’t play an actual part in this book, but I got over that quickly. Leslie Rule definitely surprises with sublime characterization skills, excellent prose and the ability to hold one’s interest until the very end, revealing the clues slowly enough to keep tension building. If you’re a fan of thrillers, ghost stories and paranormal mysteries, this is definitely a nice read. I hope Leslie Rule’s other book, Whispers From The Grave, is just as good.
