Book Review: Killer Scents

            Today's review is on Killer Scents by Adelle Laudan

I love it when a book is so engaging, that when I'm done it feels like I have just seen a really good movie. Killer Scents did just that. A classic "who done it" mystery, Killer Scents keeps you guessing at each turn.

Becca hasn't been with a man since the death of her partner, that is besides a one night stand with a handsome stranger. She also hasn't had another partner. But that's about to change. There's a killer on the loose, and he has targeted one of Becca's friends.

"The Florist"; as he is called, sews the mouths of his victims shut with fishing line and kills them with a single shot to the head, right between their eyes. He calling card? A flower placed in their folded hands.

The Chief wants nothing more than to catch this sick killer, so he calls in backup to help his best detective. And when Becca and Randy recognize each other from that long ago night, the attraction sparks back to life. Now if they can only keep themselves under control until they catch the bad guy. But that's not easy, and when Becca is abducted, all bets are off. Randy loves Becca and will move both heaven and hell to get her back safely.

Just when you think you know who the killer is, Laudan proves you wrong and leads you down another path. And just when you think you've reached the "happily ever after", she throws in another twist. Could there be a follow-up to Killer Scents? I hope so.

But even as good as I feel this book was, there is one thing I would like to see. Less mistakes. No one person is able to catch all mistakes. That's why I ALWAYS recommend having your manuscript proofed even after your editor looks at it. Even after I edit a piece.
