• Sexy Psychological Thriller Mystery?
4 Stars

I’d once believed that nothing would equal the pain of losing my parents.
I was wrong.
I had barely even begun to process their deaths when it started.
The love notes, flowers, gifts all anonymously left on my porch.
Then, I opened my door to a dead bird.
At first, I thought it had died naturally.
I knew that wasn’t the case when I found my neighbor’s cat the next day.
Then, the murders started.
The victims women who looked eerily similar to me.
I had a stalker. A murderous one.
And I had no clue who he was.
He never showed me his face.
Not even when he carved his final message into me.
I survived that night. But my life was over. It had ended the moment Tobias Ripley’s infatuation with me began.
So, I changed my name and moved away.
Now, I live a life of solitude. I don’t make connections with anyone.
Until Jack Canti walks into my life with his sharp eyes and easy smiles.
Only Jack isn’t the man he says he is.
And when the murders start again, I’m left wondering if it’s a copycat.
Or worse
What if Tobias wasn’t the real killer after all and the murderer has been right here with me all along? 

We're in Jackson, Wyoming.
24 year old Audrey came here six months ago to start a new life.
A life she was almost too dead to start.
She's been through a lot back in Chicago. And she's still über-scared and careful with everything.
That's why she's so weird with this new hot guy in her apartment building. Plus he's always showing up at the library where she works too.
Is Jack just a great guy who is interested in her? Or has her past caught up with her?

What will happen with Audrey & Jack?
Will there be a HEA?


Well. I loved it. Even though I hated it.
No. I hated it. Even though I loved it! LOL!
Sam was so scared people wouldn't like this story, because it's not something she's ever done before. But it was great! It was an exciting thrillery mystery thingy. With some very romantic, sexy, funny, adorable moments. I really enjoyed reading it.
You just can't stop reading basically. You need to know what is what and who is good and who is bad and grrrr. ☺
And that's basically all I can tell you without spoiling anything. And I hate that! Because I know people will want to know if we'll get a happy end, or if any of our darlings will die et cetera. But I can't tell you. READ IT! You might love it. You might want to throw Sam and your kindle out the nearest window. But try it!!!! I really enjoyed reading it ... come chat me up after reading - we'll discuss. ☺

ARC received for an honest review

I like it when authors step out of their comfort zones and write something completely different from what they have in the past.

It can be hit or miss with the results, however with Dead Pretty, Samantha Towle has a hit with me.  I know she was worried about how people would take to Dead Pretty, but she need not have worried.  She had a story to tell, and she told it well.

It's a mystery/thriller/omg kind of book.  I was so involved with this story as I was reading. In the back of my mind, I was always waiting for the shoe to drop.  I was anxiously turning each page, needing to know what would happen next.

Audrey and Jack's story was intense. There is so much I could say, but this is a story that you need to just dive in to.

This is going to be a story that you either love or hate - I hope you love it!
