I’m typically not a fan of contemporary romance nor have I ever gravitated towards crime stories/mysteries, but after reading ALL THE BEAUTIFUL BRIDES by USA Today Bestselling Author, Rita Herron…I may have to start expanding my horizons.

A young woman lies dead at the bottom of a waterfall, dressed in a wedding gown with a rose stem jammed down her throat. And in the small town of Graveyard Falls, the horrifying vision stirs a long-ago nightmare back to life.

FBI Special Agent Cal Coulter gets called in to investigate the murder, which bears a terrifying resemblance to a series of killings committed thirty years ago: three teenage girls were found dead at the waterfall’s base, all bearing rose stems in their throats. The high school football star was convicted and imprisoned for those murders, so now Cal suspects that the real killer is still out there.

Now, the body count is rising again. The monster’s sights are set on counselor Mona Monroe, Cal’s best friend’s widow…and the woman he’s always loved. Can Cal stop the killer before Mona becomes the next victim?

Completely engaging from the very first page;

ALL THE BEAUTIFUL BRIDES is completely engaging from the very first page; the reuniting of old flames, a grisly series of murders and one woman’s quest to discover her past, all move and flow at the perfect pace to keep you locked in the story’s embrace so strongly that you don’t want it to ever end.

Rita Herron has created a superb cast of multi-dimensional characters to compliment the hero and heroine, a well-crafted mystery and just the right level of romance to keep a lover of any genre completely satisfied.
