This book was hugely enjoyable to read, and I almost raced over the pages eager to find out who the serial killer was. Susannah Blackwood escapes an attack. But only after giving a description to the police does she discover that she narrowly missed being another victim to the Hampstead Heath murderer. Saved by her brother’s friend, James Sullivan; he vows to protect her after the sickening promise of the serial killer, that he will hunt her down and execute an ‘exquisite death.’ This is a fast paced, edge of your seat drama, written with exciting prose and good character development. I felt as if I was there as Susannah and her protectors raced from one safe-house to another with the serial killer chomping on their heels. Thoroughly recommend.
The Fast paced storyline got me hooked and I could not put it down. I finished the book in 2 sessions only. This is book 3 of the Blackwood family’s adventures. I really enjoyed Sugar and Spice and how the story unfolded so quickly into fast paced, heart racing moments! I loved the romantic pieces in there too and I never saw anything coming until ‘bam’ it was there. You ought to read books 1&2 before you read this one as there are references to previous characters. You won’t be disappointed as all three are very good.
I am always a bit guarded when I start a book by an author I have not read anything by before and I am happy to say that Julia Blake delivered just what the title says. A little bit of sugar and a lot of spice. The storyline is well thought-out, the setting changes every once in a while, twists and turns making the story flow easily and effortlessly. I would have liked a bit more romance between the two main characters but overall I have thoroughly enjoyed the third installment in the Blackwood Family Saga, eventhough I have not yet read the ones before.
