Dead Perfect - by Noelle Holten

October 16th, 2020, is finally here, publication day! A special congratulations go out to Noelle Holten, author of the Maggie Jamieson Crime Thriller series! Book three, "Dead Perfect," is available NOW! RUN! Trust me when I say you are going to want to read this one!

If you read book two, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about when I say that Noelle left her readers begging for more! Picking up "Dead Perfect" was akin to flipping the page, as that is exactly how it starts - right where "Dead Wrong" left off! While all of the books in this series can be read as a standalone, I'd suggest reading them in order for maximum enjoyment!

The 'Living Doll Killer.' Boom. Enough said. 

Okay, but really wow! This may just be the best installment in the series yet. I've enjoyed them all, but there was just something about this one that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time! I was worried about Dr. Kate Moloney's safety, DC Maggie Jamieson's sanity, and absolutely fascinated by this book's psychological aspects! The 'why' is a huge driving factor here. What could cause someone to kill women and completely change their appearance? To figure that out, you'll have to follow this cast of characters on their hair-raising journey to save one of their own.

As with her previous books, Noelle provides her readers with multiple narrations and insights into the story's main and supporting characters. This time around, we're given an even deeper look into Maggie and Kate's lives, their histories, personalities, and relationships, both personal and professional. Maggie definitely toes, if not crosses, the line quite a few times in her efforts to protect Kate. Her team, while mostly understanding, were often at the brunt, receiving end of her struggles. I am hoping that the next installment provides more insight into the lives of Maggie's team. I would love to know DI Rutherford, DS Wright, Bethany, and Kat a little better. Each new book usually comes with further development of the individual characters, and I'm eager to learn more. 

I would recommend this to crime thriller enthusiasts everywhere! As stated in my review of "Dead Inside," it's important to note that this book is a part of a series and does end with a hook for book four. Rest assured that all of this individual story's I's are dotted, and t's are crossed; the ending scene purely leaves you wanting and ready for the next installment! News on books four and the following book five of this series is coming soon; be sure to keep this author on your radar!

I'd like to take a moment and thank the author, the publishers at One More Chapter, a division of Harper Collins UK, and NetGalley for my advanced ebook copy of "Dead Perfect." I fully intend to add the paperback to my collection! I have voluntarily and honestly reviewed this title.

Book Blurb:

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?
