Blood Trails by Sharon Sala Book Review

Her ‘father's' deathbed confession reveals that Holly's real father was almost certainly the notorious serial killer known as The Hunter, and that her mother gave Holly up to save her life. But The Hunter was never caught — and Holly's mother simply vanished.

In search of her past, Holly leaves both her home and Bud Tate — the handsome ranch foreman she's afraid to love — horrified by the knowledge that the blood of a depraved killer might run through her veins. Haunted, driven, she searches for The Hunter in the hope her mother was wrong.

But her search leads to a terrible truth no one could have imagined. Even Bud's determination to follow and protect the woman he loves may not be enough to save Holly from the terrors of her past.


My review 

3 stars

Holly goes back to her old hometown and finds her father. What she doesn't know at that time - is that her father is on the hunt again and also found her as well.

Not a lot really happened within the storyline. The storyline was  a tad too predictable, and very fast paced,  as in it all happens rather quickly.

I haven’t read the previous books in the series, but found the storyline easy to follow. If you after a romance then this book is not for you, it’s quiet -  not a lot of suspense either. The storyline held no real surprises, I do intend to go and read the first two books in the series.

The mystery and suspense I felt no urgency within the storyline. The story was interesting but certainly a book I wouldn’t read in one sitting or was compelled to go back and read in a hurry.

Holly was a strong character, mostly  throughout the story and Bud was adependable and was there for Holly. I did enjoy this part ;) I did like Bud and Holly however. The relationship was quiet  difficult at times , in the sense of they both feared  rejection.

I enjoyed Sala’s writing; she has no qualms in putting pen to paper. The settings were well written with vivid descriptions.

This book was suppiled to me for review for my honest opinion
