A murdered woman…

When the body of a young woman is found in a local park, DC Maggie Jamieson knows she’s dealing with no ordinary killer.

The murder victim has been disfigured; her outfit changed to resemble someone else. Someone Maggie knows all too well…her close friend Dr Kate Moloney.

A determined detective…

Maggie is determined to keep her friend safe, but with Kate already struggling with a threatening stalker, Maggie now fears Kate’s life is in real danger.

Who else would want to harm Kate and why else would the killer be turning his victims into exact replicas – his living dolls?

Can Maggie find the depraved killer? Or will Kate become his next living doll?

Strewth what an ending! What a story! What a book!

I love being back with Maggie and the team, although it’s not her team. Nathan is the boss man and I loved the change of dynamics between the two, plus how it is not Maggie in charge in the story. Following on from the shocks in Book 2 Dead Wrong, it all got cranked up a complete notch in Dead Perfect. When it’s one of your own in trouble, things just get real!

Dead Perfect is a book that will keep you hooked, Noelle’s writing is an enticing one. She keeps you enthralled with her words, she kept me thinking about the book when I couldn’t read it. I was itching to get back to it!

I never like to talk about the story, but this was a story I never expect. It was shocking and cruel but with an innocence about it and I have never read anything like this before! It was so creative and fresh and I enjoyed it, although I probably shouldn’t have!! Packing a punch the entire way through, it goes without saying that Noelle took the wind out of me with the end! I am now having to wait for book 4 – which is April!!!!!

I love this series! I love Maggie, although she doesn’t always get it right, she is a woman who is fiercely loyal and wears her heart on her sleeve. I did feel for her in this book, but as the saying goes, as one door closes another opens. In this case, it is such a tease!

I can’t wait for the next chapter in this series, I know whatever comes for Maggie and the Team, Noelle will make sure that it’s a journey no one will forget!

Until next time xxx
