Book Review: Pretty Little Killers

Still haunted by his wife’s murder—and stained by the blood of avenging it—FBI special agent Hatcher McGee can’t believe he’s being teamed up with rookie agent Korine Davenport. She is his most guilty secret—the one-night stand who almost cost him everything.

Korine has her own demons. As a child, she witnessed her father’s murder, and she’s spent her life waiting for the killer’s return. She and Hatcher are both looking for closure, but the disturbing case that draws them together could be their last.

When the mutilated body of a corrupt Savannah judge surfaces, Hatcher and Korine find themselves on the trail of a vigilante who is showing no mercy. Not for the predators who’ve gone free. And not for anyone who gets in the way.

As the body count rises, and as Hatcher’s and Korine’s own pasts unfold, they must risk their lives tracking a killer they’ve come to understand all too well. After all, the ends justify the means.

I have had the pleasure of reading and loving one of Ms. Herron's many series before so I definitely was excited to see that she is starting another romantic suspense series.  And I am happy to say that PRETTY LITTLE KILLERS exceeded my expectations!
Now to do that, the expected standards were met.  The pacing was flowing and spot on..  There was a lot of tension both internal and external which tighter and tighter as the story unfolds.  The dialogue was realistic and witty at times.
Where this book exceeds is in a couple areas which make it memorable.  When I look back on reading this book. the first thing that hits me is just how much I like the characters.  While the story focuses on Korine and Hatcher, all of the characters spring to life with Ms. Herron's words.  On some there's just a glimpse at what really makes them tick, on others you feel like you really get to know them.   
The next thing that springs to mind is the path to the ending.  A couple of the revelations caught me by surprise though in hindsight, I can pick up slight foreshadowing.  And while I found the ending satisfying, I am very curious just what the next book is going to add to the mix.
I do recommend PRETTY LITTLE KILLERS to any of my readers who enjoy romantic suspense. There is violence and some sex scenes that get a little heated which I doubt would surprise any of my readers.
