Book Review: Picture Perfect Murder

15 Apr

Unknown-1When photographer Lily Parker escapes an attack, she doesn’t want any help from the FBI agent who is convinced she’s a serial killer’s latest obsession. But after one of her photographs is found at a murder scene, it’s clear that Special Agent Rex Sullivan was right. Lily, a former CIA agent, isn’t used to relying on others, but she won’t survive without Rex at her side. And Rex quickly sees that Lily isn’t a typical victim in need of his protection, but a valuable partner who can help him bring down a madman. With the murderer growing bolder, Rex has to convince Lily to trust him with her safety—or she could become the killer’s next victim.

My Impressions:

Picture Perfect Murder is another winner from author and lawyer Rachel Dylan. This book is part of the Love Inspired Suspense series and offers fast-paced action right from the start. Suspects abound and I found myself scrutinizing everyone’s actions, but the ending came as a big surprise — a plus in my opinion. If you need a book to tuck into your beach or weekend bag, consider Picture Perfect Murder.

A serial killer is on the loose in Atlanta, but has he met his match in former CIA agent Lily Parker? This character can take care of herself! But she is not alone; she has help from hunky FBI agent Rex Sullivan and her dog Grace. There is definite chemistry between the two main characters that fans of romance will approve. For the dog lover, Grace plays a big role.  There is also non-stop suspense and mystery that begins from page one — the action never lets up. The faith message is strong in Picture Perfect Murder. Lily is a believer whose past has negatively influenced her trust in God. She has come to believe God just doesn’t listen or care. Rex is a strong Christian and a positive witness for Lily. Slowly she comes to trust Rex and God. I liked Dylan’s emphasis on fellowship and accountability in maintaining our relationship with God.

A quick-read, Picture Perfect Murder will keep you engaged until the adrenaline-laced ending!
