I'm a HUGE FAN of Allie K. Adams and her romantic/suspense TREX Series. When she told me she was writing a suspense/thriller, I knew it would be a winner. Even if this genre isn't what you normally read, it's got other elements in it you may enjoy. Ms. Adams is well known for her sense of humor and this is reflected in this story as well. Though it's not a romance, it does have a hint of sexual chemistry and tension between the two main characters Sean Murphy & Hannah Grace. The story begins with Hannah as a young teen, raised Amish, she is pursued by an odd Amish boy named Javan. When they were little children Hannah thought this boy would be her future husband, but as the years go by the young man turns into a real creeper. After the sudden disappearance of her father years later, Hannah leaves the Amish community behind. She becomes a cop, mainly to right the wrongs in the world as well as finding out what happened to her beloved father. Now ten years later Hannah is a Homicide Detective working for the Montana SBI (State Bureau of Investigation). Partnered with the hot Detective Sean Murphy, known amongst the department as a real ladies man, the relationship between these two main characters is a big part of the story. When the Detectives catch a case involving the disappearance and then murders of young, blonde, blue eyed women found mutilated and dressed as Amish brides....Hannah has flash back memories of the uneasy feelings she had when around the ever growing creepy Javan. She can't help thinking the cause of her constant nightmares is somehow behind the evil that is taking the lives of these innocent women. This book actually has two storylines going for it.....the main one, the pursuit of a serial killer and the constantly growing relationship between the partners Murph & Grace. The constant humorous banter between these great characters is a big selling point for the book in my opinion. This story was a real page turner and I found myself up late into the night reading, unable to put it down. The pure evil that surrounded the character Javan really freaked me out big time. He is the ultimate sociopath! I enjoyed trying to anticipate his next moves and was on the edge of my seat as the story unfolded. The end of the book leaves the door wide open for another book. I HIGHLY recommend this totally scary read!!
