Review: Say You're Sorry by Karen Rose

Say You're Sorry

Publisher: Berkley
Pages: 624

Goodreads:  Special Agent Gideon Reynolds has tried hard to put his past behind him. He escaped the violence of his cult upbringing when he was just thirteen, and since then routine and discipline have been his way of making sense of the world. But when a petite blonde woman crashes into his life, he begins to realize that a little bit of chaos might not be so bad.

Daisy Dawson has had more than her fair share of pain too—but she's done being a victim. Daisy's determined to explore every new experience she can—including getting to know the dark and serious FBI investigator she meets when she fights off a masked attacker one night.

It soon becomes clear that Daisy's attack was just the beginning. Now the bloodied bodies of young women are showing up all over California, and, as Gideon tries to find the killer, it's clear that Daisy is in more danger than they ever realized...

Kritters Thoughts:  Daisy Dawson is living on her own and finally feels like she has her life in line.  One night her life took quite the turn when she was attacked in an alley, survived but ended up with a piece of jewelry that will bring Special Agent Gideon Reynolds to his knees and to places in his past.  

There were two mysteries going on at the same time.  The mystery of the jewelry and a horrible religious cult of the past.  Gideon must confront a lot of things with this storyline and this one I enjoyed the most.  

SPOILER - I can't believe they didn't solve this one, I was so frustrated that it wasn't contained in this book.  I was really irked!

The other mystery has to do with Daisy's attack and figuring out who did it, how and why.  I also liked this one, but just a hair less than the other.  This mystery is solved and it was interesting to hear chapters throughout the book from the culprit's point of view - creepy and great.  

Be warned if you read a lot of mystery, this book has a great mystery, BUT it has all the trappings of a romance story.  There is some sexy times and some chapters that can make you feel awkward reading in public!  I tend to like to keep these genres separate, so I don't usually enjoy sexy times in my mystery thrillers.  I thought this book could be completely complete without the sexy times, they just didn't work for me.  

I am not sure I would read this author often because of the romance and mystery combo, but may read it every so often.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
