After narrowing escaping the Bride Killer, Josie DuKane is back at Graveyard Falls to speak about a movie being made from her tell all memoir. But shortly after she arrives, she receives photographs from a killer depicting their victims to make Josie believe she may be next.
Dealing with the guilt and death of his sister, Special Agent Dane Hamrick, will do anything to find his sister’s murderer but his growing attraction to Josie is distracting him.
The two must put their feelings aside and find the killer among the growing number of bodies before Josie is among the dead.
Diving right in; The first book was a really good read (Click here for the review). I was sucked into it immediately and although it lost steam, I was able to hold on an enjoy myself.
However, book two is part of the shrug pile. I couldn’t get into it. From beginning to end, the book seemed like an entire stretch. Josie knows pretty well that town hates her for writing that book and bringing those memories back. She was once part of that. So her trying to convince a town and herself that she didn’t write the book or agree to a movie for profit is crap. Josie was an unconvincing character. But she wasn’t the only one; so was Dane. They both needed some work and care.
Although this is a Graveyard Falls series, I couldn’t get over the fact that another killer was in this town. This is where it becomes unrealistic in the sense that this killer picked Graveyard Falls; granted the book explains this and among other things but I couldn’t stop myself from scratching my head thinking why.
The book was slow; even when things picked up there was still a underlining slow motion to everything that was going on. It was very frustrating to read. Compared to the first book, All The Pretty Faces seemed mediocre.
