FBI agent Lilah Love leads a complicated life. She's engaged to Kane Mendez, a man most call dangerous, but hey birds of a feather, do flock together. She's dangerous, too, and in ways only Kane understands. As for their happily ever after, well that might have to wait. Right now, an old enemy who should be dead is still living, Junior, her mystery letter writer, is stirring up trouble, and

descriptionThis is going to be kind of a short review as I don't want to give anything away, and basically everything I said about book one applies to this book as well. It was a fantastic book. Well written. Fast paced. It was teeming with twists and turns, and intrigue. Lies. Secrets, and betrayals. Thankfully, we are given some answers to the questions we were left with in book one, but some remain. On top of that, we are left with a whole slew of new ones. Again like book one, we have a full cast of

Honestly, I don’t even know where to start with this review. Lilah was literally all over the map in this one. She was fierce, she was determined, and absolutely no one, friend or foe or family alike was going to stand in her way. While her attitude rubbed me the wrong way pretty much from beginning to end, I absolutely respected the crap out of her. LRJ created one heck of a heroine with this woman and you really don’t have to like her in order to admire how she gets the job done.

OMG I love her twisted mind. Awesome book!
Such a horrible name for a book, don’t you think? Unless you are looking at the sequel to the story about FBI agent Lilah Love. And if you have read the first book, Murder Notes, then you will understand why this book is named such as it is.

I’m so happy to be able to review this new book as the first book just blew me away. But make sure you have your head in the right place to read this story. Dark, gruesome, and a whole lot o

It is highly recommended that you read the first Lilah Love book... MURDER NOTES. Murder Girl is a continuation featuring all the characters from the first book. The beginning of Murder Girl gives a several-page synopsis of the first book, all the characters and how they all relate to each other.

Murder Girl starts off where the previous book left us, right in the middle of an intense investigation with Lilah Love. This book takes us deeper into the secrets surrounding Lilah's family and leaves you on the edge of your seat all the way through. Even the ending, which wasn't a full on cliffhanger, will have you dying for more.

The suspense is what I loved from the previous story and also what I enjoyed most from this one. I'm a big mystery fan so when a book ca
This starts off right where Murder Notes ended. I would recommend reading these in order; otherwise the plot, the numerous characters and their connections may become very confusing. However, at the beginning, there is a summary of the action so far.
I gave the first book 5 stars, I absolutely loved it and couldn't wait to continue. Not exactly sure what happened, but this wasn't anywhere near as exciting. In fact, there were parts where I almost switched off. I still think the protagonist, foul
Mindy Lou's Book Review
2nd read: Still love it!

1st read: I'm seriously in love with this series. I'm fascinated by the process of watching the main character figure out clue by clue to solve a series of murders, as well as dealing with what happened to her two years prior and how that all may be connected.

To see how an author can have so much going on in a story and slowly connect everything that happens to the people we get introduced to just has me riveted to the pages. Trust me, you will not be bored with this ser

Unwilling to accept everyone's solution of a fall guy Lilah is looking for the true murderer, whether that person is an assassin or a serial killer or something else entirely.

MURDER GIRL (Lilah Love #2) by Lisa Renee Jones is the second book in this thriller/suspense FBI profiler series and picks up right where the first book’s overall plotline left us hanging for more. You can pick up this book which has a great synopsis of book #1 in the beginning, but the first book was just as well written, so I really do recommend you take the time to read it, too.

Lilah Love is one of the best profilers in the FBI.

Agent Lilah Love is back and still at the beginning any closer to finding out who set up Woods and why they are wanting Kane Mendez to take the fall and more importantly who is killing everyone? Murder Girl starts with Old Man Romano tied up in Kane's basement and then learning he doesn't know much either. I have to admit; I wasn't 100% keen on this particular book as It seemed to jump all over the place and was hard to concentrate and find out what was happening, as it looks like Lilah can't tr ...more
4 stars.
Oh, thank god this didn't end in another cliffhanger. I don't think I could have dealt with another abrupt ending like book #1.
So FYI you have to read book #1 "Murder Notes " prior as it is essential reading before starting part two of this romantic suspense. It takes off where the first book ended.
Its not like everything is tied up in a nice pretty parcel at the end of this book but its more like these two books are the pilot and starting point for a new series featuring my new favorite

2.5 stars

I really liked the first book, but this one was not as good.
I'll start with what I liked - Lilah is still badass, and for some reason, I really like her. Her and Kane's banter was funny, sexy, it was done just right.

However, I don't think the author knows what profiling is or "inhabiting a killer’s mind", as it's presented in the blurb. We saw none of that!
What we did witness was a lot of talking, going in circles, and Lilah's unhealthy eating habits. By the end, you realize nothing pa

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Murder Girl by Lisa Renee Jones is book Two in the Lilah Love series. This book is not a standalone book, so you do have to read the previous book 'Murder Notes' first to fully enjoy this book. Lilah is still on the pursuit of a killer and getting the answers she need. There is a underline romance for Lilah but for I felt is was more of a mystery/suspense story. This whole series so far are books that you can't put down and you just want more....which will lead us to book three in the series. Ca ...more
Oh man! This go round Lisa Renee Jones just solidified that she definitely knows how to do romantic suspense! I fell so far into this story that I lost most of my day to the ins and outs that Lilah Love was weeding through as she tries to solve her case. It was a day well spent.

Lilah’s investigation takes her to a place I never imagined. This story goes DEEP into some serious mystery that I won’t spoil. Even as she’s suspecting everyone around her, I was right there as well experiencing a journe

FBI Special Agent Lilah Love is back home in the Hamptons, New York following up on a case that is connected to a case she was working on in California. To say Lilah isn't happy to be home would be an understatement but there is one silver lining, Kane. YUMMY! Kane's family shall we say???? ummmm, not clean...yeah that's a good term for it since Lilah's family is supposed to be squeaky clean with them either being in law enforcement or politics.

Whoa Dang! I want more Lilah Love!! We finally have answers! But not all of the answers, in fact, we leave Murder Girl with a few more unanswered questions than we started with, but the anticipation for those answers is so sweet!

Murder Girl picks up right where we left of from Murder Notes, and if you read it, you know that was quite the doozy! The plot twists and trying to figure out who the good guys actually are is intense to say the least. There are several characters that if they are later

Murder Girl was a little harder to get into than the first book. The Story seemed to jump around unable to find a focus on one part of the story. The main mystery was very similar to the one in the first book because of the lack of focus by the author this reader started to flip pages homing for the letters that Lilah had been receiving would find a conclusion. Instead the longer bigger mystery is a cliff hanger while the main mystery comes to an end with a nice little bow.

Murder Girl, the continuation of Lisa Renee Jones’ Lilah Love series is just as captivating and intense as Murder Notes because the closer Lilah gets to unraveling the killer’s mind and following the clues of the case, the more twisted and interconnected those involved become, making it almost impossible to identify the truths amidst the lies and the guilty amidst the innocent and forcing Lilah to take extreme steps to solve this case, even if it means fully embracing her dark impulses and givin ...more

Murder Girl starts off exactly where Murder Notes ended and Lisa gives a quick review of what happened in Murder Notes just to bring us quickly up to speed in case anything was forgotten.

What I love about this series is the suspense and mystery of things and Lilah (I really want inside her head!). Without giving much away in lines of the plot, I will try to be brief which will most likely keep this review very vague in terms of what to expect.

This adventure just keeps getting better with every new thrilling twist and exciting turn. In this book we are following the Awesomely talented Lilah as she stalks a killer that is also stalking her. The danger, mystery, drama and passion all make this a "I so can not put it down for a moment or I might miss something and regret it later" kinda read.

This duet not only starts with a bang but it ends with one too.

Jones’ storytelling is brilliant. The way she manages to tell a story is mesmerizing. So many intricately woven pieces, finally come together in this riveting finale. Action and intrigue. Danger and excitement. I couldn’t put this one down.

Jones has definitely left an opening for more stories within the world of Lilah Love. It’s clear that there is more story to tell here and I’m eager to read whatever is to come.

I'm gonna stop you right here and say that if you haven't read Murder Notes, the first book in this series, go back and read that one first. Otherwise, you'll find yourself stepping into the middle of a well established narrative with no idea what's going on or who the players are.

I've recently been reading quite a bit of crime fiction centred around female protagonists (Kendra Elliott’s Mercy Kilpatrick and Loreth Anne White’s Angie Pallorino being notable examples) and picked this up for revie

4 stars. That ending has me so heated. I don't want to wait for book 3, I want it now. I genuinely enjoy this series and want more of it.

While I will say that I enjoyed the first book just a bit more, this one was still really great as well. It just had a lot more slower moments where the first book was so fast paced and it kinda threw me off.

Lilah Love and all of her snark and badassness is back and I can't say enough how much I love her character. She's so refreshing. I'm used to just always
