This week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the mystery romance novel, The Killing Room by Gerri Hill. This book was published in 2006 by Bella Books and has a page count of 332 pages. The audiobook is read by Abby Craden and is 10 hours & 11 minutes in length. The following overview is provided from the B&N page: Denver detective Jake McCoy is trying to recover – both physically and emotionally – from the shooting death of a young boy that also left her injured. She soon finds herself rehabbing at her cabin in the mountains, soaking in the remote natural springs – which is exactly where Psychologist Nicole Westbrook vacations and soon stumbles across her… When Nicole leaves the next day, the two women know like more about the other than her first name – yet they are now lovers instead of strangers. When Jake returns to Denver, a serial murder investigation soon leads her to Nicole. As the investigation develops their physical attraction threatens to compromise the case. Nicole finds herself struggling to remain in the professional closet that she’s been hiding in for so long – a place where an out cop like Jake McCoy simply does not belong. Once the crimes are solved, will the women go their separate ways? Or will the physical attraction and the gentle tug of love prove that opposites do attact…
I have a thing for messy emotions and complex characters. This book delivered on that plus had an amazing story. I loved all the twists and turns this book took me on. I easily got lost in the world and want to revisit it again. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it to fans of mystery/thriller novels.
I give this novel 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Tomorrow for the Missing Person Saturday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Kendrick Cunerd Watson. Next week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the biography novel, Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. Until then keep reading on; Nerd out!
