About the Book-
FBI Profiler Kaely Quinn visits Nebraska to care for her ailing mother. She cant help but notice suspicious connections among a series of local fires, so she calls on her partner, Noah Hunter, to help find the arsonist. Together they unwittingly embark on a twisted path to a mad man who is determined his last heinous act will be Kaelys death.
OOOOOH This series is G O O D!!! If you want to read my review of Book 1, Mind Games, you can find it here. It covers a lot of the points that I also cover in this one, such as the villain POV, the profiling, and minimal romance, which I all enjoyed.
While I don’t think I enjoyed this one quite as much as the first one, this one was similar enough that a few pages in, I remembered what happened. The plot twist that happened in this book wasn’t as dramatic as the one in the first, since it was almost alluded to in the main part of the story. However, the smaller twists in the story were SO GOOD: I was on a voice call with my friends while reading and I may or may not have SQUEALED when I got to it. It was GOOD.
The romance and family themes were slightly stronger in this book than the previous one, but it wasn’t enough that it really took away from the story. The main focus on the book was Kaley and the arsonist (and Noah, of course), and I realllly liked that!
It did feel like the story kind of wrapped up too quickly: I wasn’t too huge of a fan of that, but it sufficed. Overall, I wasn’t quite a fan of this book as much as I was of book 1, but I still really enjoyed it and will be looking forwards to book 3!
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review; I was not required to write a positive review.
