IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED
It’s been seven years since the Seattle Strangler terrorized the city. His victims were all young, pretty, their lifeless bodies found wrapped in a home-sewn white dress. But there was one who miraculously escaped death, just before the Strangler disappeared…

KILL
Lara Church has only hazy memories of her long-ago attack. What she does have is a home in Austin, a job, and a chance at a normal life at last. Then Texas Ranger James Beck arrives on her doorstep with shattering news: The Strangler is back. And this time, he’s in Austin…

AND KILL AGAIN…
He’s always craved her, even as he killed the others. For so long he’s been waiting to unleash the beast within. And this time, he’ll prove he holds her life in his hands—right before he ends it forever…

My Ratings:
Overall Rating: 3.25
Story Rating: 3.00
Character Rating: 3.50

First Thought When Finished: Crap! Another ending that pretty much made me go from WOW to MEH!

Story Thoughts: I thought The Seventh Victim was pretty good till the last third. There were some twists and turns that made me go “WOW”. However, I think it just went one step to far and I totally didn’t buy the end. Some people will love it though so this was just a me thing!

Character Thoughts: On a whole, I liked the characters but I felt that one thing that happened was totally out of character for one of them. That actually threw me off and made me question my thoughts on the other characters. Also this was billed as a Romantic Suspense but the romance was not very believable. I think I would have been fine if it had been billed as a suspense read!

Final Thought: I like Mary Burton but this was not one of my favorites by her. I do believe this book will work better for others than it did for me.

    Lol I think that little box: Confirm you are NOT a spammer is fun. Does it work?

    I am sorry one thing ruined the book for you, hope the next one is better. It is not calling my name, but I am very picky with my romantic suspense authors.
