REVIEW of Murder Girl by Lisa Renee Jones

Release Date:
July 10th, 2018
Romantic Suspense / Thriller

Lilah Love
Book #2
It’s Lilah Love’s job to inhabit a killer’s mind. The unapologetically tough FBI profiler is very comfortable there. But her latest case is making her head spin. It’s a string of brutal assassinations carried out across the country, each tied to a mysterious tattoo. Body by body, she’s followed the clues all the way back to her hometown. And every step of the way, the killer has been following her.

Here, beneath the glamour of the privileged Hamptons community, is a secret long buried but never forgotten. It’s bigger than Lilah. It’s powerful enough to escape the reach of the FBI. And it’s more personal than anyone can imagine. Because it’s hiding in Lilah’s own past. To fight it, she’s forced to turn to her lethally tempting ex, Kane Mendez. He’s an expert at bringing out Lilah’s darkest impulses. If she plans to survive, she’s going to need them.

My Thoughts…

This is part of a series.   Murder Notes is the first book in the series and Murder Girl continues the story right where the first one ended.   I love that Lisa Renee Jones starts this book with a short recap chapter that reminds the reader what happened in the first book but to get the full appreciation of the series I recommend starting with book one.

The storyline is one that pulled me in, kept me guessing while having me hope for a happy ending for Lilah.  I was intrigued by Junior and what his/her tie is to Lilah.   Is her family as dirty as they are being portrayed?    There are so many questions that I need to be answered.    Murder Girl ended and I still have questions, leaving me excited for Lilah Love #3.
I know there is so much history for Lilah and Kane but he is such a bad boy with his mobster past that I want them together.      The author teases her reader with their attraction and then points out all the reasons they are so wrong for each other and that leaves us guessing at what is going to be Lilah’s ending.    There are of course other male characters that would be more appropriate for Lilah Love but they seem so boring for her life.   As you can tell I’m #TeamKane all the way.  

Murder Girl is the perfect blend of intrigue, darkness, sex, and mystery.   It is not tied up neatly with a bow.   You will be left with questions that will hopefully be answered in the next book.
