Book Blog Tour and Giveaway: One Scream Away by Kate Brady
Thanks to Anna from Hachette Book Group for the chance to review this book and the chance to give away 5 copies of this book. See below for the details.
Description: Killer Chevy Bankes is a master of disguise, and just paroled, he’s coming after the woman who sent him to jail, the beautiful antiques expert Beth Denison. A set of antique dolls brings Beth into his sight, and inspire Chevy’s disturbing crimes as he draws closer to Beth and her young daughter. Chevy sends the dolls to Beth one-by-one and she soon realizes that these antiques carry the same marks as his victims, signaling that the final piece in his collection will be for her.
Neil Sheridan gave up his FBI shield five years ago, but his best friend Rick, a cop, pulls him in as a consultant on a case involving a serial killer who is eerily similar to a murderer Neil encountered in the past. The investigation leads Neil to Beth’s doorstep, and he is certain she isn’t telling him the truth. Neil is the only one who can get through Beth’s defenses and, as they grow closer, discover the secrets that Beth is hiding about her fateful night with Chevy.
This book will definitely keep you on tenderhooks through out the entire story. Just when you think you know what is going on you are thrown for another loop. As a mother myself I can identify with Beth’s desire to protect her daughter at any cost and your heart will break after hearing Neil’s story about his family.
The idea of the serial killer, Chevy, using antique dolls as clues as to what was happening or going to happen to each of his victims was unique and disturbing. It was not until about 2/3 of the way through the book that I really started to get an inkling of who Jenny really was and even that turned out to be total shock in the end.
This book will definitely get your heart pounding as you follow the fast paced action and I am glad that the romance between Beth and Neil did not overwhelm the murder mystery. Instead their relationship was seemlessly integrated into the main plot.
