Those who read this type of genre, should n't expect anything more from this ook.

When I read these type of novel, I 'm not looking for a thought provoking, true-to-life suspense.

It started out promising, a ba ook to read on the trains, but then it began to lag at around page 100.

I have other Lisa Jackson books, but now I do n't know if I 'll read them.

My problem was even though the entire nove was hilarious, I still wanted to see what improbable scenario Jackson had planned for the ending.I love a good romantic suspense/thriller, but this had way too many laws.

First, the main protagonist, Kristi, had previously been kidnapped and tortured by two other serial killers.

If it is readers still would like some explanation of these prior events to help understand the haracter.

She was upset with the other killer because she believed he was odd for wanting to have sex with the girls he killed, so he could drain the blood for her.

I get annoyed when I see little errors like this, but even more so when the whol novel is one big sham.I 'm done with my rant.

Yes, I know she 's supposed to be lovabl but she went beyond that and was just plain silly at times.There was also a lot of repetition- almost as though trying to make up the word count.

Readers know you 're going to finish up together so credit up with some intelligence and do n't labour the point.I 'm trying hard to think of something positive to say.

Naturally Kristi has to look into the case to get her first big true crime story.This thing hinges on coincidence, way too much really.

Setting her up as a maid and taking vampire in literature classes with a vampire cult on campus that all four girls belonged to, just telegraphs ‘ hey Kristi will be caught by the vampire dude by the end. ’ Three times a victim?

Next coincidence, naturally is Jay taking a night job at the ollege while working days in the crime lab in N.O. Next coincidence, Kristi ’ s former college roommate is now teaching at the graduat and warns her about the cult and the list goes on.Still, it was interesting enough until about just past the halfway mark then it goes entirely off the rails.

ay doesn ’ t go to the cops with the stuff Kristi has found out, the cops never even bother to look into the disappearances etc.
