Title: Murder Notes (Lilah Love #1)
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Stars: 3 1/2 stars
The story feels like there is more to it but somewhere it falls flat. It could be because she mention Cujo her shotgun in almost every single chapter or the endless monologue Lisa Renee Jones uses though out the story. The more Lisa Renee Jones uses the inner working of the lead characters mind the slower the story becomes until it stops the flow of the story and leaves readers trying to decide if they should finish the book or more on to something with a little more bite. Lilah is suppose to be a expert profiler but seems lost to many times and readers will lose hope in Lilah.
The story has lots of promise but falls flat many times.

s an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.
Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?
