      3.5 starsI finished this awhile ago and was behind on my reviews and never got around to reviewing it. So I am taking the easy way out on this review and putting down my thoughts on this since I am reviewing every book I read this year. I enjoyed this book and I did like it. I loved the first book. This one just didn't have the suspense like the first book did. I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series and I am waiting for the next one on Overdrive. I found this to be pr [...]

      If there is indeed a formula for writing a murder mystery, this book followed it. The story was predictable. No real surprises.

      My brother loaned me this book. Hmmm, serial killer, similar victims, back after 30 years, sounds like it's right up my alley. Then, on page 30, I got to the following paragraph:“John Baldwin stood with his arms crossed and one long leg propped against the wall behind him. He'd been avidly ignoring the receptionist for a good fifteen minutes; she'd been staring at him like he was a tasty dessert since he'd entered the building. He'd become entirely oblivious to all but the most blatant attempt [...]

      Dnf on page 113, actually. So many books to get through on my shelf, so little time. I'm sad because the first book showed potential in the series, but this book is extremely sexist and I'm not here for this. Slut-shaming all around unless you are the MC, and what would be considered the "good girl". So, BYE. I probably will not continue this series.

      I haven't read this series in a while and now I'm going to have to move it up on my TBR since I remembered why I liked them so much in the first place. Another brilliant character from a terrific author who knows how to keep the suspense rolling and the action steady. Loved it!

      Part of the fun of reading "14" is the novel's setting. Set in and around Nashville, it's fascinating to see various settings, place and restaurants show up in the fictional world of homicide detective Taylor Jackson. For the second installment in the Taylor Jackson series, J.T. Ellison pits Jackson against the Snow White serial killer. The killer held Nashville in a grip of terror years before and then disappeared. Now the killer is back and up to his or her old tricks, selecting victims who lo [...]

      Though I had a rather frustrating time getting my hands on this book, once I did, it was well worth the wait! This follow-up to All The Pretty Girls was a very solid sequel. The writing wasn’t quite as polished with a few distracting inconsistencies with the perspective. The plot, however, contained a lot more surprises and moved at an even faster speed than the first volume in the Taylor Jackson series. The romantic relationships played a larger role here - the actions were less implied than [...]

      REVIEW OF AUDIOBOOK; JANUARY 1, 2017Narrator: Joyce BeanThis started off fine but degraded over time and 3 stars is all I give. The second half was a convoluted mess involving little bits of Taylor's past, her father and some strange characters who make up the villains.I would have liked this more if Taylor wasn't obsessing over her wedding day and how she couldn't possibly go on her honeymoon when there's this crazy killer at work. And poor Baldwin just puts up with up in suffering silence. I'm [...]

      Oh no. An over describer, more concerned with name dropping and props than plot. This would be the kind of person that posts pictures of their food on instagram :( Reading this is a bit like those annoying M&S adverts -It's not just a jacket, its a cosy shearling jacket, it's not just a jumper, its the thick creamy cable knit, ditto the favorite battered UGG boots. No mere coffee for this chica - Lord forbid, nooo'grabbing a Starbucks, no-sugar vanilla latte'. Meh. Don't even get me started [...]

      ***Spoiler Alert***Holy Moly!! Didn't expect the ending! I loved the New York setting in the Wintertime during the month of December. I could vividly picture Times Square and New York decked out with Christmas lights.I applaud Taylor of standing up to Win the way she did. I loved the way the story ended. It makes me look forward to the next book. For those that don't like too much romance this is a good book because we aren't bombarded with cheesy romance sessions between Taylor & Baldwin. I [...]

      Well, I just can't do it. The rapes and murders are just too much for me. I won't continue with this series.

    12. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      I found 14 to be even better than the first in the series, and with its haunting cases and characters it was a really exciting book.

    13. Lynda Kelly on said:

      I'm liking this series and plan to carry on with it BUTI wouldn't have bought this one if I'd realised it was Mafia-related as all that type of gangster/mob crime bores me senseless. So for some of it I was a little reluctant to open it up again.which was a pity. It was still a good story nonetheless and that's just a personal gripe for me. Plus I read a series in order so I already "knew" some of the characters. If it had been my first encounter with them I might have ditched the series so I'm [...]

    14. Alexandra on said:

      I really wanted to like this book so I could read more books from the Taylor Jackson series. I liked the first on ok so I gave J.T.Ellison another try. But this book had so many issues. First of all, the characters are somehow just flat. Even after two Taylor Jackson stories I did not develop any great sympathies for her. Same for the other characters even though the author really tried to make them appear a little edgy.The story is just so unrealistic (I know, this is a mystery and no true crim [...]

      I andra delen i Taylor Jackson serien följer vi Taylor, Baldwin och deras team i jakten på seriemördaren Snövits copycat. Kroppar av svart- håriga tonårstjejer med rött läppstift strömmar in.En gammal journalist som rapporterade dagligen om Snövit morden börjar följa upp fallet. Tills han hittas död. Gamle Frank kom för nära sanningen. Baldwins ex, den oerhört irriterande Charlotte dyker upp och gör alla förbannade, mestadels för att hon har en annan plan än FBI för att ta f [...]

    16. Stephanie on said:

      Not love. I will give it three stars because I didn't read the first in the Taylor Jackson series so perhaps that would've helped me "like" the characters a bit more. The romance between Baldwin and Taylor was a bit ridiculous in my opinion (if I read "honey" "baby" "sweatheart" one more time I might gag); AND all the filler regarding their wedding was a waste and just boring, I am reading a thriller NOT a romance. The gruesome snow white murders turned into this big convoluted case that I felt [...]

    17. Mindy on said:

      Mm I hope her books don't follow the same formula. I get that it's part of a series but Eh. Main character is getting better. I still can't really connect with her, and the focus on the personal life takes away from the premise to me. I get that it's good to get to know the character and all, but it just made it really rough and broken up. Preetttty typical for a serial killer novel.

    18. Terri on said:

      Years ago, ten women were killed by the "Snow White Killer" and now another four have been killed in the same way. Taylor needs to find out it if it is the same killer or a copycat, and catch him. All before her upcoming wedding and honeymoon.I found the story more complex than I expected (a good thing) and really enjoyed the characters' interactions throughout.

    19. Louisa on said:

      Oh, loved reading this book again! So enjoyable, so great, and I loved being with these characters again! *First read January 1st, 2009*Loved this book, great 2nd book, one that will cause lots of conflict in later books, and I rather enjoyed reading it, put it on your list, suspense readers!

    20. Toni on said:

      Enjoyable book. Can't wait for the continuation. Will Taylor even get married?

    21. Marnie on said:

      While this is book 2 to a series, I really enjoyed reading this murder book. The crime and solving came together very nicely and I didn't feel lost by not reading the first book.

    22. Renee on said:

      I read this book because it was set in Nashville, where I visit frequently. I was disappointed. Too much romance.

    23. Katherine Coble on said:

      It was fun reading the Nashville name-dropping, but I didn't care for it beyond that. Everything here as been done before, and in a way that's less awkward.

    24. Michelle on said:

      I just couldn’t make it through this book. I loved Lie to Me so I though I would give her Taylor Jackson series a shot. The first was okay, I didn’t love Taylor but the mystery was compelling. However, this was terrible. The writing is subpar - overly descriptive without adding to the story. For example, 4 pages is spent describing a breakfast with a journalist but nothing happens, they just leave. It felt like the author just wanted to name drop her favorite places in Nashville. Also, the r [...]

    25. Piroska on said:

      I'm fairly sure I already read this book but it was still enjoyable. Until the end when the author just wanted to prolong the book and ended up with no catharsis. One of my favorites was "we don't really have time but I'm just gonna read through all the newspapers in the library alone instead of accepting help with it, because because reasons." And there was more and more of these towards the end making it just not as good as it could have been. Also, the story of Charlotte and the memories of T [...]

    26. Ess on said:

      I quite enjoyed this book though it did seriously put me on edge at night haha. Slightly predictable but still had me burning for answers right until the end. The thing I enjoy most about the two books in this series is the short chapters and multiple perspectives. Taylor Jackson is definitely an amazing lead character and it's refreshing to see someone so smart and confident rather than the usual damsel in distress.Really enjoyed the book and would recommend to anyone who loves a good thriller [...]

    27. Emilie Davis on said:

      This was a great read!I enjoyed this book. While wondering how all of the pieces were going to come together at the end, the storyline kept me on the edge of my seat. Ellison left 2 strings to be finished in a later book, but that was fine with me. I already had enough excitement for 1 day.

    28. Connie on said:

      This is a well written book that pulls the reader in quickly and keeps you reading to the end. That being said, when I thought the story was done, it kept going. I knew about 3/4 of the way how the story was going to end, but overall it was a pretty good book.

    29. Brandon Stec on said:

      What I like most about the Taylor Jackson series is the complete imperfection of both Taylor and Baldwin. They struggle together and though they resolved the crime, both came out of this story damaged and haunted. Well-written and strong hooks along the way.
