Last to Die by Kate Brady

Book Description:
A ruthless killer hides in plain sight, someone no one believes is capable of murder. Within a week, six women will be murdered, all punished for their dark pasts. Detective Dani Cole is determined to track down this serial killer whose victims include a young woman she pulled out of a life of crime. Her investigation leads her to a photography foundation and the renowned photographer Mitch Sheridan, a man she she fell in love with years ago but has tried to forget. Dani and Mitch are instantly attracted to each other again, though their troubled pasts keep them from getting too close. Together, through the course of the investigation, they unearth a dark chain of deception that leads to a killer who is closer than they think.

My Thoughts:
This book was good. Dani is a detective who has just burried her father and is having issues proving that she isn't the crooked cop that he was. When a woman she had helped winds up a victim of a serial killer, she is hot on his trail. The trail however, leads to a former 'fling' Mitch. He owns a foundation and his friend Russell runs it and was murdered right as Mitch arrived in town. Dani is heading the investigation and now has the killer's attention focused on her...
I picked this book up and just couldn't put it down until the end. I loved how it got to the 'action' right off the bat with the vivid scene of the murder. The author has a way of showing you the twisted mind of the killer and the insights are scary! Dani is a very well developed character whose feelings you feel. Mitch is a rich man who is every woman's dream. He is troubled, maybe even tortured, good looking, rich and loyal...a woman's dream man! The sparks between the two are quick and hot. There are a lot of unexpected twists and the ending is well written and not disappointing!

This book is a 5/5. Good 'by the fire' read to get lost in for a while. I'm looking forward to her next book.
