Deb Sanders Blog Review:
"There’s a lot going on in A Taste For Killing and since this is a short novella, author H.K. Sterling wastes no time in getting the ball rolling. Murder, multiple suspects but no motive, an on-again-off-again boyfriend who also happens to be a competing private detective and a little eye candy at a construction site that puts our main character’s motor into overdrive. And that’s just the first chapter.
Carolyn Woods felt like a blend of Stephanie Plum and a gumshoe detective. In fact, this interesting tale uses a lot of stereotypes. I especially liked the gum-smacking second wife of the victim’s father. Rather than detract from the story, however, it lends a “campy” feel that I really enjoyed. I also found the competition between Carolyn and Jack, the BF, to be a fun angle, although I was still rooting for her when she met Evan, a potential suspect and another spicy love interest. Spicy? Ummm, hot might be a better word!
A Taste For Killing will keep you guessing with some well placed twists and turns. It’s a good balance of crime, suspense and romance and reads incredibly fast. I’m not going to give away any spoilers but trust me, when finished, you’ll be searching for Book 2 by this talented author."
