ARC Review - The Seventh Victim by Mary Burton

The Seventh Victim by Mary Burton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A serial killer is stalking young women in Seattle, posing them in white dresses after their death. One woman got away seven years ago, with her life and only hazy memories of the attack. In those seven years, Lara Church has been on the move, never staying in one place too long, never feeling at ease. When she inherits her family home, she tries to settle down and resume a normal life.

The killer has tracked her to Texas and her only salvation may be either a tough Texas Ranger, James Beck, who, in spite of his gruffness, is attracted to Lara or a retired cop from Seattle who can't let the case go.

With James' help, Lara is trying to remember what happened to her the night she survived, all while facing more attacks from her killer, who wants to finish what he started.

Lara is damaged, but she is determined to get her life back. The big question becomes who is really the enemy? Who can she trust besides her faithful German Shepherd?

The story is gripping and intense right up to that big twist at the end!

Mary Burton is a gifted story teller who does not disappoint with this tale!
