For the record, I was unaware that this was part of a series before I started but that took absolutely nothing away from the story. In a nut shell the story follows Bobbi, a transgender and who had previously suffered through rape as she struggles to discover who is stalking her. After narrowing her suspicions down to a list of 6 she hunts them down and eliminate them one by one from her list. I loved Bobbi, she is so strong and determined and so easy to care about and I really got to like her and enjoy her sense of humor. Reading a lot of thrillers, I love finding a gem like this, with plenty of diversity and representation, and genuinely surprising twists. It is a brilliant with out a doubt an edge of your seat mystery with plenty of suspense. I am 100% going to go back and start the series from the beginning.
It has been years since I have read an Erica Spindler book and this one didn't disappoint, it was a real heart pounding thriller. Although I sussed out the plot quite early on (I read a lot of thrillers) this didn't detract from the storyline of Miranda, the cop is in a race against time to solve a murder before her past comes back to haunt her. I loved the whole troubled teen now a cop trope, I like the amount of grittiness it adds to storyline. The downside for me was all the love scenes. But that's just my personal preference. Love gets in the way of murder and action, but hey! thats just me. Aside from the love this was a really good top-notch thriller, and I would recommend to all of my thriller reading buddies!

Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout’s knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them, and, with that, one another. Despite the media’s attempts, they never meet...
Once again this is a NetGalley copy that I have had lingering around on my Kindle forever. After receiving a copy in my FairyLoot I finally gave in and read it... honestly I was a tad bit disappointed. Personally I thought the writing style a little unnecessarily over complicated, it took a while to get used to but it was beautifully descriptive.
July already!! Where the hell has the year gone?! I have been so focused on trying to get through my review ARCs recently that this month I am determined to read more of what I want, as well I trying to finish at least one series that I am half way through.
