Book Review: All the Pretty Faces

Josie DuKane is on shaky ground. Having narrowly escaped the notorious Bride Killer, she penned a tell-all memoir that dug up a town’s dark past. Now the book is being made into a movie, and Josie must visit the very place that will trigger an avalanche of unwanted memories—Graveyard Falls. On the heels of her arrival, she receives a gruesome photograph of a dead woman with talon marks carved into her face. And worse, Josie just might be the next victim.

Torn between guilt, justice, and revenge, Special Agent Dane Hamrick will do anything to find the man who brutally murdered his sister. When he realizes the recent tragedies in Graveyard Falls bear an uncanny resemblance to her death, he volunteers to spearhead the investigation. But doing so means teaming up with Josie.

Nothing prepares him for the feelings the beautiful, tough woman evokes. As the body count rises and the suspect pool widens, Josie and Dane must put aside their growing attraction to run down the killer who devastated both their lives.

A killer who seems determined to destroy all the pretty faces.…

I really enjoyed revisiting the town of Graveyard Falls.  It's a couple years since Josie escaped the Bride Killer and her way of processing the events was to write a book.  She is now back in Graveyard Falls, staying at her grandfather's house, to supervise the filming of the book into a movie.  Unfortunately a lot of the townsfolk are not too happy about the movie and there is another killer on the move.

Josie is a very strong and caring woman who refuses to allow the terror of her past experiences define her future.  Ms. Herron did a wonderful job of portraying Josie with all of her strengths and weaknesses.  I was equally impressed by the character of Dane who has so totally immersed himself in his self appointed task of finding his sister's murderer that it blinds him to other happenings.  

ALL THE PRETTY FACES is loaded with suspense, terror, friendship and love.  The reader never knows just what is going to come at them on the next page and I was totally surprised when the villain was revealed.  I do recommend this book to any of my readers who enjoy romantic suspense and those that have been following the saga of Graveyard Falls. 

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
