Hi All! It’s Becky, again. I have been a fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books for quite some time and I was really excited when I found Till Death on Overdrive. This book was a little different than Armentrout’s other books. Here are my thoughts:
Title: Till Death
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Note: I listened to the audiobook.
Summary: Sasha Keaton has a legacy in her small West Virginia hometown. Sasha is the only survivor of The Groom, a serial killer who took young women and trying to force them to love him. Sasha escaped the madman and ran from her small-town life. Now, it’s ten years later and Sasha has returned home to help run her family’s inn just as women start to go missing again. Is a copycat trying to target Sasha or is the murderer she thought was dead somehow come back?
Review: This book was almost an awesome mystery but it just didn’t quite get there for me. I have a weird fascination with serial killers, I always have, and I was excited when I found this book on Overdrive however the mystery didn’t really work for me. First, I have to say that Armentrout is a great writer, she is master at creating strong female characters. You will never find a whiny heroine in one of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books and I greatly appreciate that. In Till Death, we have Sasha the only survivor of The Groom a serial killer who took young women to be his bride before they displeased him and he murdered them. That part of the book was great. I enjoyed reading about Sasha and follow her as she tried to cope with coming home to the place where she was kidnapped and tortured. Sasha’s emotional journey was compelling and authentic. I also greatly enjoyed her relationship with former love and possible future love interest, Cole. Their relationship was filled with touching and tender moments and sizzling hot romance. My only issue with this book, and it is kind of a big issue, is that the killer was obvious from almost the first page. The bad guy and his motivation have been seen before and when the final reveal came it made the whole book a little less great. Fans of Armentrout will still enjoy this one however hardcore mystery fans may be disappointed.
Final Rating: 3 out of
