About The Book:

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…

As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.

Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?


I scan the ocean, expecting it to turn to blood, but it simply crashes to the shore.

I turn to the house and take a step, then stop abruptly, a shadow flickering by the house. A shiver runs down my spine. There it is again. Another shadow. Someone is there. It’s then that I flash back to being on this very sand, with Kane grabbing my arms and saying, “I’ll take care of it.” And I let him, and did so without asking questions, until it was too late to change the outcome. Because I was weak that night and he was strong. But I am not weak anymore.

I pull my weapon and start running for the house, wind in my hair and face, my heart thundering in my ears, and I don’t stop until I’m staring at the blood splattered all over the patio glass, some kind of note pinned in the center. Adrenaline surges through me, but I am in my Otherworld now. I retain my cool. I walk to the patio door, using the end of my shirt to open the door, and then I systematically search every inch of the house. When I know I’m alone, I walk to my bag, pull on gloves and then walk back outside, yanking the note off the door. Returning back inside, I lock the door and pull the blinds and then I open the note. At the top is the alphabet, pasted in paper letters, with an X across the letter A. The note reads:

A is for the Apple a day that keeps the doctor away. But a doctor couldn’t help him, could he?


My Review:

Murder Notes (Lilah Love, #1)Murder Notes by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder Notes by Lisa Renee Jones is the first book in her Lilah Love series. A murder mystery told from the perspective of FBI Special Agent Lilah Love with a cliffhanger ending that will leave you excited for more but not quite ready to throw your kindle/ereader/paperback. There is an underlying romance from her past that shows it's head but the main focus of the story is the crimes and how, as they all start being pieced together, keep pointing to Lilah and a secret in her past.

Lilah is tough. She has to be in order to do her job, that of FBI Profiler and a frequent visitor to horrific crime scenes. She grew up in the Hamptons with a police chief father and movie star mother and her brother and herself both went into law enforcement. She could have the easy life in the Hamptons but she is a hard working, ambitious woman. Not to mention that the West Coast is about as far away as she could get after the "incident".

It is this "incident" that pulls her back to the Hamptons and her past when a murder there links to two in LA and another in Manhattan. As she slowly starts to unravel the details of the case she gets embroiled in family drama, plot twists, potential betrayal and the focus of a stalker with a penchant for leaving behind semi-threatening notes Lilah is sure have to do with her secret that only one other person should know, Kane Mendez. He also happen to be on the suspect list for the Hamptons murder.

Rich in detail and plot twists this story will keep you engaged throughout, have you laughing at Lilah's snark and attitude, and second-guessing every potential suspect on her list. Loved this! Up next, book two - Murder Girl.

Lilah Love #2
July 10, 2018

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones returns with the second book in her electrifying series featuring Lilah Love, an FBI profiler who doesn’t fight her dark side—she embraces it.

It’s Lilah Love’s job to inhabit a killer’s mind. The unapologetically tough FBI profiler is very comfortable there. But her latest case is making her head spin. It’s a string of brutal assassinations carried out across the country, each tied to a mysterious tattoo. Body by body, she’s followed the clues all the way back to her hometown. And every step of the way, the killer has been following her.

Here, beneath the glamour of the privileged Hamptons community, is a secret long buried but never forgotten. It’s bigger than Lilah. It’s powerful enough to escape the reach of the FBI. And it’s more personal than anyone can imagine. Because it’s hiding in Lilah’s own past. To fight it, she’s forced to turn to her lethally tempting ex, Kane Mendez. He’s an expert at bringing out Lilah’s darkest impulses. If she plans to survive, she’s going to need them.
