Book Review: Fear Me, Fear Me Not (Gavert City #1) by Elodie Nowodazkij
Title: Fear Me, Fear Me Not (Gavert City #1)
Author: Elodie Nowodazkij
Stars: 3 1\2
I am not sure what it is but something is missing from this book to make it great. The killer, the characters, the mystery work and while I believe most readers will be able to figure out the killer. It doesn't seem to make as much since as some readers would like.
The story will keep readers up all night hoping for the ending they envision in their minds
Thank you to Netgalley and a copy of Elodie Nowodazkij Fear Me, Fear Me Not.
Seventeen-year-old cheerleader Erin Hortz has been warned about the Angel Killer all her life. She never walks alone in the dark. She doesn’t talk to strangers. She doesn’t accept drinks at parties. All she wants is to finish her senior year with a win at the Miss Junior Queen of Hearts pageant, capture the perfect light over the lake with her new camera, and finally catch the attention of her best friend Nadia’s brother—former football star Dimitri Kuklev. Since his injury, they’ve been spending a lot of time together. And getting to know the real Dimitri—not the one she put on a pedestal in her diary is better than she could ever have imagined. And she’s falling hard.
Nineteen-year-old Dimitri’s injury brought him from football superstar with universities from all around the country knocking at his door to not knowing what he wants to do with his life. Taking classes at the local community college is supposed to get him back on track, but all he wants is to be on the field again. The only person who seems to understand him is the one he swore to keep in the friend zone: Erin. His sister Nadia’s best friend and the reason why he can’t keep a girlfriend. Between their early morning jogs, their time spent at the lake laughing, and their late night conversations, he’s having a hard time remembering why it’s such a bad idea.
But when Nadia doesn’t come home after a party, Dimitri and Erin know they must find her before it’s too late—even if that means risking their own lives and everything Erin’s ever known.
Because the main suspect is Erin’s father.
