Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Serial Killer’s Girl by L.H. Stacey. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite. Read on for my review and more info!
Does a killer’s blood run in the family?
Lexi Jakes thought she could run from her past.
But when her biological mother is found dead, strangled with a red silk scarf and holding a chess piece, Lexi knows that her worst nightmare has come true. Because the murder has all the hallmarks of her own serial killer father, renown strangler Peter Graves.
Now with her own precious daughter’s life in danger, Lexi will do anything to keep her child safe…she is her father’s daughter after all.
The Serial Killer’s Girl by L.H. Stacey is a gripping psychological thriller. The setting of this story is beautiful. I’ve never been to this area but I felt like I was there because this author transported me into this story and setting.
This story has quite a bit of tension. Lexi is in a situation I definitely wouldn’t want to be in. Trying to keep her past hidden and daughter safe causes a lot of tension in her relationships. Some of her decisions frustrated me but in the situation she was in, it made sense.
There was a bit of repetition in this book that I think could have been cut to make the story flow a bit better. I had a bit of trouble because sometimes it took me out of the story, but it didn’t ruin my enjoyment overall!
I had suspicions of who the murderer was but was taken by surprise by the reveal. The author takes the reader on a a twisting journey full of suspense and mystery until the final reveal.
I would recommend this one for psychological thriller fans. I think the characters were great and the plot was intriguing.
