Today I am taking part in the blog tour and reviewing The Serial Killer’s Girl by L.H. Stacey. This was released on the 27th of April, published by Boldwood Books.
Lexi Jakes thought she could run from her past…she was wrong.
Because when her biological mother is found dead, with all the same hallmarks of her own serial killer father, Lexi knows someone is out for revenge, and that she and her small daughter, Isla, could be next.
Determined to protect Isla, Lexi travels back to Lindisfarne, the small remote island where she grew up. There, cut off from the mainland, Lexi hopes they’ll both be safe.
But as the tide comes in and the causeway slowly closes, Lexi’s greatest fear comes true: now they are trapped with no way out.
Lexi will do anything to save her daughter…she is the serial killer’s girl after all.
Does a killer’s blood run in the family?
The Serial Killer’s Girl is a slow burning suspenseful psychological thriller which I enjoyed. Stacey has done a great job of creating a tense and atmospheric tale which pulled me in and had me hooked from its opening which sets a chilling tone for whats to come.
The characters are well fleshed out and developed. I was intrigued by Lexi and how she handles the fact her father is a convicted serial killer. The narrative moves between Lexi and the killer. It is not often you get a killer’s point of view in these types of stories, so I love when it happens as it gives you insight into their twisted minds!
I enjoyed Stacey’s writing which I found to be very engaging, I loved the dark and sinister atmosphere, which works very well for the story and I thought it was well plotted and executed.
Thank you to L.H. Stacey Boldwood Books and NetGalley for allowing me an advanced copy of The Serial Killer’s Girl, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
