Ella has a past that haunts her and a family she’s trying to escape from, but the strength of her character has helped her create a new life for herself as a Boston nurse. She has a best friend and a good job, but the right man has been more elusive. Thanks to a chance—and embarrassing—encounter in a coffee shop, she thinks she just might have finally found the right one in Rett, who is both gorgeous and mysterious. Their romance plays out over the background of a brutal serial killer terrorizing the Boston streets, a serial killer who kills women who look very much like Ella. Melody Jerva has done a great job of balancing the steamy romance of the novel with the suspense and thrills of it. If Ella’s Gifts were a TV show, it would probably qualify for an R rating for language, sex, and violence. The sex scenes are erotic in their detail and the murder scenes are horrifying in their detail, but through it all, Ella’s basic innocence shines through. Not just Ella, but all the characters are fully fleshed out people who I can imagine continuing to have lives after the last page of the book. I read a lot of mysteries and thrillers, and I can usually figure out whodunnit long before the end of the book, but this one kept me guessing until the reveal. That doesn’t happen often and it impresses me when it does. All in all, Ella’s Gifts is a really good read.

Once you start reading Ella’s Gifts you won’t stop until it’s finished! This novel is very well written and moves at a quick pace with ‘straight to the point’ detail. The main character Ella is very likeable and the actions of the serial killer well thought out making it difficult to guess who it is until the end. (The use of Mr Kelly’s Alzheimer’s was very interesting) I can definitely see a sequel to this novel being written.
