"Picture Perfect Murder" by Rachel Dylan

About this book:

  When photographer Lily Parker escapes an attack, she doesn't want any help from the FBI agent who is convinced she's a serial killer's latest obsession. But after one of her photographs is found at a murder scene, it's clear that Special Agent Rex Sullivan was right. Lily, a former CIA agent, isn't used to relying on others, but she won't survive without Rex at her side. And Rex quickly sees that Lily isn't a typical victim in need of his protection, but a valuable partner who can help him bring down a madman. With the murderer growing bolder, Rex has to convince Lily to trust him with her safety—or she could become the killer's next victim.”

My personal Rating-
{Not for those sensitive towards murders.}
{Add ½ for those interested in law enforcement.}
When I first saw the title, I was interested, but then learning from the back cover that she’s a photographer and former CI while he’s FBI, I become quite interested. This was my first book by this author and I found the writing style (not to mention the plot) to be very dramatic. There was also a lot of Spiritual Content for a Love Inspired Suspense book, which was a nice surprise! With the killer, I had my suspicions and was glad it turned out not to be a typical “Oh, it’s obviously ________.” Definitely not for those who are sensitive to killer plots, though. Older girls interested in law enforcement might find it interesting but do keep in mind that it’s a suspense, so it’ll have those suspenseful topics as main plot points.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
