Read from July 18 to 19, 2012

A very enjoyable first in series featuring a forensic psychologist, Jill Kennedy and DCI Max Trentham as they try to track down a serial killer called Valentine. They've already gotten it wrong once--a year ago, the wrong man was arrested and convicted and subsequently killed himself, and Valentine has struck again...and he's leaving little "gifts" for Jill at her new cottage in a nearby village. Jill has given up her job with the police to concentrate on writing--and her relationship with Max also dissolved--but she's now being persuaded to consult with them again by Max's boss. Another series of murders in the village where Jill lives keeps Max busy and sometimes too close by for Jill's liking.

By the end of the book, I had an excellent sense of who these characters were, although the Valentine mystery was very easy to solve. The village murders involved a bit of a plot twist that I didn't see coming though, so that's always a bonus. Glad I have the second in series already waiting.

Julie I have this. Guess I need to move it closer to the top of Mt. TBR.
