“…bland romance as well as bland mystery.”
~ Under the Covers
The premise of this book had all the makings for being a story that I loved. There’s a serial killer on the loose and the cops are not sure if it’s a copy cat or the original killer that was never caught many years ago. So they decide to bring in an expert on the original killer into the investigation to try and rescue the missing people before they die. This is also a student/teacher romance but that comes to fruition years later.
I wanted to like this book more than I actually did. I think overall what made me not love this book is the pacing. It’s quite slow, the mystery isn’t really thrilling, there’s not enough danger throughout. I felt like it delivered a bit of bland romance as well as bland mystery. It had so much potential but it felt a bit boring in the end.
That being said, I loved how the student/teacher angle was handled as well as the age difference. It gave these two the opportunity to reconnect and finally act on things that they never even hinted at.
I still liked it enough, even if it wasn’t memorable. But it hasn’t left me itching to pick up the next Layla Reyne book. And I have a few on my TBR.
