really liked it
bookshelves: crime-drama-thriller

I won't lie... I'm digging this author. Her books are like reading an episode of Criminal Minds (which right now, is apparently appealing to me). I love the twists and turns her books seem to take, and I love trying to figure out who did what to whom and who the kidnapper/murderer/psycho is. She uses fantastic character development, and writes in a way so that I feel I'm right there experiencing everything along with the characters and feeling their anxiousness/sadness/nervousness/desperation.

I also like that many of her books (so far) only span from 24 hours to 2-3 days in time in the story. It seems to add more excitement to the books.

Again, I'd highly recommend Katia's books. Not if you're looking for great works of literature that have you thinking deeply and pondering life's lessons. But if you want a good, quick, exciting read. Fantastic pool/summer/I-want-a-book-I-finish-in-a-day-or-two reads. And with a price tag of only $.99 to $2.00 at for the Nook, it can't be beat...
