My NetGalley Self

My NetGalley Shelf

I am part of an online site called NetGalley. This site connects authors and reviewers. It's a fantastic way to get hold of pre-released books and books to review. By doing so you can get yourself added to publishers lists, so if you review a lot of books by a certain publisher and they like your reviews, they can add you to their auto-approval list, this means that when you apply to review a book by that publisher you would automatically be approved.

So what is a featured review? When an author or publisher likes your review so much they publish it as a feature review which means when they advertise the book for sale they use your review to help sell the book so others can see what you have said about the book before it was published. I have had two of my reviews selected to be a feature review.

A serial killer is loose and so far seven women have been killed, now journalist Kate Rivendale joins the manhunt. There is no suspects and the only forensic evidence links back to the 1930's. Can Kate get out of the manhunt alive and can she keep her own secrets buried 

I found this book to be very slow, I struggled to get into the story and must admit I could not finish the book. I found it didn't hold my attention as I didn't find it gripping and I didn't get that feeling where I just had to read on and find out what happens next. 

Unfortunately, this book was not for me. For someone who enjoys slower paced books then this book is for you. I personally need a book to be faster paced and really gripping in the first few chapters to keep me reading.

Thank You to author for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
