Reading

Kill Me Twice (The Bullet Catchers, Book 1) by Roxanne St. Claire

This is my first St. Claire. I'd heard great things about the Bulletcatchers series so I thought "hey, check it out."

The characters are not as deeply explored as I like in a romance. The action is fast and then a bit slow and then fast. It wasn't too hard to figure out the villain, but it was just hazy enough that it kept my interest.

The treatment of the heroine by the bad guys is rough, but the treatment of her kidnapped twin sister is nasty and gritty in detail. Then again, we are talking about a villain who is depraved and deranged so maybe it's appropriate. Torture with sexual overtones is maybe not my thing.

As I said, the characters could have been more thoroughly explored. However, I have put the next Bulletcatchers book on my tbr list. With its popularity I suspect things get more interesting.
