Title: Ripped in Two
Author: AJ Kohler
Reesa’s not looking for a relationship, she’s
after for a killer. Sometimes, though, it’s easier to think outside the box
when you don’t start inside it, and it’s not like he doesn’t have some
involvement with these murders already. Jeff’s not bad to look at either, and
he’s willing to settle for just going to lunch from time to time. That works
Then again, as many times as he’s been involved with the murders, maybe he’s the killer himself.
Or maybe not.
Of course, life would be so much easier if the star local TV crime scene reporter didn’t insist on putting her front and center all the time and sneering at the fruitless efforts of both the Tucson Police and Pima County Sheriff’s Departments.
One way or another, Reesa won’t rest until the killer is brought in. Better if he’s a stranger, but if it’s this private eye who’s working to be her friend, so be it. Whoever it is will be going down.
Bet on it.
A serial killer and a cop who’s determined to stop him. The romance between Reesa and her newfound love interest, Jeff, is overshadowed by her suspicions. More than once, he has had ties with the crimes she must investigate. Reesa finds herself torn between wanting to take down the killer once and for all and losing herself to her own vulnerability.
There was a lot going on in this story. On one hand you had a vicious serial killer seemingly picking his victims based on infidelity and on the other you have a delightful romance with a fickle female lead. There were a lot of ups and downs, a lot of moments where I wanted to grab Reesa and tell her to get her things together, but in the end, the twists were worth it. I loved that I wasn’t able to easily guess who the killer was. It made the book riveting up until the last page.
