Hm. I’m still not sure how I feel about LoveMurder.
Basically, Valerie Hart is a detective who is forced to relive a case that she only half solved. With new murders popping up, Valerie has to go back to woman she put away several years before – Katherine Glass. With Katherine’s assistance, Valerie should be able to prevent further murders but, of course, nothing goes according to plan or there is no story.
Oy. In my opinion, the murderer is obvious from very early on. The cadence is halting and awkward to the point it is difficult to stick with it. I’m not sure if this is intentional or just Mr. Black’s style. I mean, it’s not a pleasant experience. So, scratch my earlier statement. I know how I feel about this book – not great.

The Verdict on LoveMurder
The premise is intriguing and I’d even say that Katherine Glass is an interesting caricature of evil. Valerie Hart as the smarter-than-average detective is tolerable. But that’s where it ends for me.
