Summary from Goodreads:
It’s been ten years since Sasha Keaton left her West Virginia hometown . . . since she escaped the twisted serial killer known as the Groom. Returning to help run her family inn means being whole again, except for one missing piece. The piece that falls into place when Sasha’s threatened—and FBI agent Cole Landis vows to protect her the way he couldn’t a decade ago.
First one woman disappears; then another, and all the while, disturbing calling cards are left for the sole survivor of the Groom’s reign of terror. Cole’s never forgiven himself for not being there when Sasha was taken, but he intends to make up for it now . . . because under the quirky sexiness Cole first fell for is a steely strength that only makes him love Sasha more.
But someone is watching. Waiting. And Sasha’s first mistake could be her last.
As you probably have seen, I am a huge fan of anything Jennifer L. Armentrout, and she has quickly became an instant read author of mine. I was thrilled when I was given an ARC of Till Death to read and review.
I think it is important to know right off the bat you are reading something a little different than you may be used too from JLA. This is a mystery/thriller. It does have romance as well, so it is the best of all worlds. This was so suspenseful. I was reading it at night and my stomach was in knots trying to figure out what was going to happen next. It will keep you guessing from the first chapter, and it never lets you go.
JLA has an ease with her writing in which you just glide through the pages. I do think some of the writing did not flow for me in the beginning, but it quickly picked up the usual JLA style that I love. Her books captivate you in a way in which you will not want to put them down. When you add in the suspense this story brings, you will be flying through it.
This is a story about facing your past and second chances. I love how it included a romance with Cole and Sasha which started ten years ago. I really enjoyed their relationship and how their love for one another never faded.
I also really enjoyed the flashback memories from Sasha about what happened to her. You learn little pieces of information about The Groom at a time, which really helps with building up the suspense of this story. My heart was racing with anticipation to find out who the killer was and how everything was going to end.
The scenes with The Groom were very well done. They brought the emotion of anger, which is exactly what a book should do when involving a villain. He was playing games with Sasha. There were even a few times you get to read from his POV. When an author can bring out different feelings for you through their writing and characters, you know it will be a great story.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I liked the plot and the characters. I flew through this in only two nights. If you are a fan of JLA or mystery/thrillers, you need to pick this up!
