Cindy’s Review – Die for Me: A Novel of the Valentine Killer by Cynthia Eden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book has series of moments that just shock you. Those moments where you realize that something you thought you knew but turns out you were wrong, very very wrong. The author takes us on an incredible journey throughout this book and and gives the readers many surprising events.
Many of the characters in this book are scarred from traumatic childhoods. This book shows us how different each person can turn out from those experiences. Some could become a sociopath killer, another that doesn’t like to be physically touched or trust easily but they have a heart of gold and will always try and save others.
I saw the heroine Katherine as a beacon of light that many could not look away from. Her serial killer ex-fiancé was drawn like a moth to a flame to her and the hardened homicide detective Dane Black was also ensnared with her beauty and humanity and wanted nothing more than to protect her.
This book takes you on a psychological mind bending journey where you think it’s just about a killer with a sole purpose but it’s not, it’s so much more than that.
