On this anything but typical Monday morning Jenna Scali, who works part-time for a shrink, opens an email that depicts the brutal death of a young girl. On that same day the police uncover a dead coed two blocks from Jenna’s house. The e-murderer’s description creepily echos the death described in the newspapers. When Jenna receives other emails, she takes what she knows to the police and thus begins her journey in the path of the e-murderer. Her curious nature impels her from e-messages to dead coeds to a ring of prostitutes. With the help of her quirky friends, Jenna learns that she’s more than a conduit for the killer. She’s his target. New secrets unfold, and finally her love life takes a tumble when the true killer emerges. THE E-MURDERER is a race to find a psychotic killer before he kills again. This new mystery series with a young female sleuth promises to keep you glued to your seat until the last page.

My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
:It has been a few years since I have read any mystery books. It is also the first book from this author that I have read. It was an amazing book where the action started from the very first chapter. The entire time I was reading it, like any good mystery book, the author had me guessing as to who could be the serial murderer, and of course, they all have their quirks. No one has been raised perfectly, but I was always wondering who could be messed up enough to be a psychotic killer.
I didn't feel a real connection between the friends in the beginning of the book, and I also didn't feel a lot of character development in Jenna during the book. If you don't focus on that, though, and see only the mystery and romantic entanglements that Jenna has somehow gotten herself into, this is an amazing book. As a mystery, the author keeps you guessing, and the book has enough romance to keep it going nicely. Jenna is the type of character you want to see succeed.
Since this was my introduction to the author, I definitely wasn't disappointed, and if you haven't read this author, I don't think you will be either..
