SAY YOU’RE SORRY – Karen Rose (Releasing February 12th, 2019)
This is book one in her new Sacramento series.
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
This is book one in Karen Rose’s new series. New series, same great combination of romance and thriller! A couple years ago I read EVERY DARK CORNER and enjoyed it, so I was ready to start fresh on a new series (I hadn’t read any of the previous books in the Cincinnati series before starting the book).
Rose combines romance, cults, serial killers, and tons of suspense for a page turning read. I was surprised how quickly I made it through this monster of a book (just around 600 pages!). We are introduced to a couple unique characters that both had unconventional upbringings. FBI Special Agent Gideon Reynolds was raised in a cult, but managed to escape at a young age. Daisy was raised by a strict military father that was convinced she was being hunted.
One night, Daisy is attacked but she manages to escape. After fighting off her attacker, she discovers she pulled off a locket with a name on the back. When Reynolds gets involved with the case he quickly realizes that Daisy is lucky to be alive and that the locket holds more clues than they would have thought.
This was a fast read and I really enjoyed Rose’s writing style. With how large of a book I didn’t really feel any lulls in the pacing or the story – which again, surprised me! If you like thrillers and want a dash of romance, then this is perfect for you. I would also recommend her other books in her Cincinnati series.
