Hunted by Elizabeth Heiter
Date Read: April 2015
Genre: Forensic Thriller, Thriller
Terror stalks a small Virginia town.
FBI rising star, criminal profiler Evelyn Baine, knows how to think like a serial killer. But she's never chased anyone like the Bakersville Burier, who hunts young women and displays them, half-buried, deep in the woods. As the body count climbs, Evelyn's relentless pursuit of the killer puts her career - and her life - at risk. And the evil lurking in the Burier's mind may be more than even she can unravel.
Terror is closer than she thinks.
The Bakersville Burier knows he's got an FBI profiler on his trail. He knows who she is and where to find her. And he's biding his time, because he's planned a special punishment for Evelyn. She may have tracked other killers, but he vows to make this her last chase. This time it's her turn to be hunted!

Overall Rating: DNF
First Thought when Finished: Hunted by Elizabeth Heiter was one I really wanted to work for me 🙁
Why the DNF: I was really sad to put this one down because the Thriller part was super well done. I did flip to the back to see how it all turned out. The problem was, the angst was super high and it kind of ruined the characters for me. It was like a super melodramatic Criminal Minds episode and that just doesn’t work for me. The writing was excellent and the story flow was good. So if you like drama in your thrillers then I really think this will work for you.
How far I made it: 150 pages (yes I was trying really hard to push through)
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
