The First Victim

"The First Victim” by JB Lynn

Brilliant! Captivating! This should be a Book-To-Movie! This book was so engaging. I could feel what the main character felt. I could relate to her emotions, they were so well described. I could relate to her fear, yet at the same time, relate to her newfound strength of being able to control situations. The main character, Emily, had previously been kidnapped by “The Baby Doll Serial Killer” when she was a young child. She was saved by a friend who happened to be in the area of where she was trying to escape from. She had always felt a deep felt gratitude towards him for helping to save her life. About fifteen years later, she is called back home because her father is hospitalized and she needs to take care of her sister who lives with her father. Reluctantly, she returns home. She was never at ease. While back at home, “The Baby Doll Serial Killer”, or so the police think, has struck again. He is back and doing what he did to her. Is this a coincidence? She is terrified because whoever this is must know her. Why else would he have killed and left behind the body of her sister’s friend in front of her father’s house. This can’t be a coincidence. Not only is ‘she’ in danger, but her little sister is in danger as well. What did she do by coming home? What did she cause? Is this her fault? This book was a page turner for me. I was so involved in this story, I never expected things to turn out the way they did. The author did an excellent job developing the characters, making them believable, and the storyline was easy to follow great twists and turns. This was a very intriguing book to read, fast paced, did not want to put down, hard to solve, suspenseful mystery. Just when you thought you might have an idea as to who this killer might be you are wrong. As I said in the beginning of this review, I think this book would be a great ‘on the edge of your seat’ movie thriller. I received this book for “FREE” from Carina Press through NetGalley, through their Book Reviewer’s Program in exchange to read and write a review about this book. It is NOT required for my review I write to be either positive or negative, but, “of my own opinion.” I was NOT provided with “ANY” monies to accept this book, “NOR” to read it, NOR were “ANY” monies given to me to write the review for this book. All that was ‘expected’ of me was to enjoy the pure pleasure of reading it. Again, the opinions expressed for and about this book are ‘of my own opinion’.
