Book Review: What Are You Afraid Of? (The Agency #2) by Alexandra Ivy
Title: What Are You Afraid Of? (The Agency #2)
Author: Alexandra Ivy
Stars: 5 stars
This is the second book in the Agency Series it is a stand alone novel but once you read it you will go back to read the first in the series because it is just that good.
Alexandra Ivy is able to pull readers in from the beginning to the end finding the little twist that will hook readers and pull them willing into this series. The wild ride that will take readers across the United States will have readers guessing who could be the killer or killers?
Carmen Jacobs doesn't seem like she would be a writer of serial killer or that those killers would have a following that is willing to kill her. Griffin is a Software millionaire that will keep Carmen safe. The story will pull at readers hearts strings as Carmen comes face to face with family who have secrets.
I think most readers will see what every twist that are in the story but its the romance between Carmen and Griffin that will keep readers hooked wanting a happy ending.
I can't wait to read the next in the series.

They aren’t the kind of women anyone misses. Truck-stop hookers, runaways . . . no one would even notice they’d disappeared if the killer didn’t photograph their lifeless bodies, posed in the back of a
semi-trailer. Exactly like the infamous Trucker murders. But this isn’t just a copycat. It’s a vendetta.
NOW HE’LL TEACH HERCarmen Jacobs interviewed the world’s most terrifying serial killers for her bestselling book, The Heart of a Predator. The police might not believe her, but she knows there’s a monster out there, paying homage to other murderers. The only person who can predict where he’ll strike next is Griffin Archer—a reclusive software millionaire with ample reason not to help her.
HOW TO DIE . . .Carmen has charmed her way past Griffin’s defenses before. He didn’t intend to let it happen again. But with a psycho sending her trophies of his kills, he has no choice but to get involved. The clues point to a killer obsessed with Carmen—someone who knows her work, her past, her secrets. Someone who won’t be satisfied until he has made all her deepest fears come true .
About The Author:
I'm not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother's knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library. Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.
Years later (no, I'm not admitting how many) I'm still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!
I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.
