Killing Kate

Summary: A serial killer is stalking your home town.

He has a type: all his victims look the same.

And they all look like you.

Kate returns from a post break-up holiday with her girlfriends to news of a serial killer in her home town – and his victims all look like her.

It could, of course, be a simple coincidence.

Or maybe not.

She becomes convinced she is being watched, followed even. Is she next? And could her mild-mannered ex-boyfriend really be a deranged murderer?

Or is the truth something far more sinister?


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

You know I really wanted to love this book. It had a good plot, fantastic cover and it just looked like a book I would really enjoy.

But, it just didn’t all work out.

Like, nothing is really wrong with it- I finished it, it’s got a good bad person reveal; but we just never became besties.


What I liked:


Love the plot.

And when the bad person is revealed… it’s a bit dramatic.


Where it fell short with me (I think) was some of the characters. You had some that were very over the top, and some that were so obvious as a potential bad person- you knew they could not be.

And Kate… Well, Kate took some proactive steps to not become the next victim, but if she had thought about Gibb’s Rule #39, well… anyway!


Bottom line: This was not bad, it just wasn’t the book I thought it would be.
