3.0 out of 5 starsNever ending
Reviewed in the United States on May 2, 2019
I enjoyed the first two books in this series and would have been okay with the third but there is no real ending in sight. I can imagine the main characters dying of old age before there is a final resolution to the serial killer father part of the tale.. There are only so many ways to tell the story before people give up and say they're done with it.
This is book three and we still haven't gotten to the end. It has been very good so far and I've enjoyed reading it. Now I am getting tired and need a closing.. so I am going to change authors for awhile and come back to this later and get on with book four.
5.0 out of 5 starsOMG...The Perfect House has a twisted ending.....

For not having read the first one which I started reading last year and just decided i need to finish the books that I started, it was well worth my time and now I am getting ready to read book four. I decided that I was going to see how book four goes and then decide if and when I buy the whole series. I am tired from having stayed up all night and finishing this book. Okay here is how it goes Jessie has returned from her training from the FBI academy and is trying to decide how she was going to get into her new apartment, which she had to get because her friend, Lacey had been threatened by her Bolton Crutchfield to let her know that he could get to her. She goes to see Bolton and he tells her he had he gave her father Xander Thurmond clues to find her because he said he wanted a reunion with his baby girl. I really did enjoy this one. Jessie is considered a profiler for the LAPD now but she still doesn't have a gun. She is put on this case in another city but still considered part of LA county. It is the rich section. The ex Assistant District Attorney there, his wife has been killed and they wanted to make sure that the case was handled with discretion and because they felt she knew these people because it was considered suburbia like Orange County where she lived. These people lived in mansions. Anyways Jessie and Ryan Hernandez are sent o help his ex partner Brady with this case. Meanwhile, Xander the Ozark Executioner has killed her adoptive parents in the effort to get them to find out information about her. As I said it was really good. These are things that have happened Randy has left his wife and she had to tell her Boss about her father and what he has threatened to do to her. I am still shocked about the twisted ending but I am on to Book Four. Fast paced and easy reading. I would recommend this series but you cannot read out of turn you have to start at the beginning to get real affect of what is going on.
4.0 out of 5 starsGreat continuation of Jessie Hunt psychological suspense series!

Another great book of the series!
Jessie Hunt, forensic profiler, now 29, has just completed a 10-week FBI training course in Quantico and returns to her new ultra-secure apartment in downtown LA to help solve the murder of a wife and mother in a ritzy suburb.
Jessie also continues to visit Bolton Crutchfield, the serial killer who idolizes her serial killer father, Xander Thurman, who has been on the run for 20 years.
Jessie's adoptive parents, Bruce and Janice Hunt, moved into a retirement community of retired law enforcement officers in Las Cruces. Her dad was a retired FBI agent, her mother was a retired teacher who'd been battling cancer off and on for 10 years. Jessie had stopped to visit them on her way to Quantico.
Lots of crazy things happen! No spoilers! On to book #4.
I really liked this book as a fun and dynamic pace book. Jessie Hunt is a good character and I really like the way she thought through things and acted and all the rest of the character were good. The prison brake was not really believable but the this is fiction. Anyhow it is scary to think that such horrible characters live in the prisons and could eventually get out one day. I could really feel Jessie's fright, how horrible to always be afraid. I didn't continue buying the books because I think the cost is to high and the fact that the author puts out lots and lots of books in a tremendous pace. 4 books cost me $14.97 and it just piles up. You end up paying very much for the series. I prefer to buy box series already finished so I know how much it is going to cost me to read the book.
4.0 out of 5 starsGreat Book - Exciting and fast paced thriller

Whilst it could be read as a stand alone story, you will have a much better understanding of how the various characters tick if you read the other books in the series.
Fresh from her FBI training Jessie is once again caught up in an investigation involving the wealthy and influential side of society. There are several suspects for the murder and each seems to be hiding something. In addition to this complex case Jessie finds out that her father (the still at large serial killer "the Ozarks Executioner") has been given enough information about her new identity, which was given when she entered Witness Protection at age 6, to find her fairly quickly. Now having to constantly look over her shoulder and using all her skills she desperately tries to avoid a family reunion with her sick and twisted Father.
Quite fast paced and an exciting story. Will keep you enthralled and entertained to the very end.
Big fan of the first two in the series, but this third book was a bit disappointing. Amid quite a few typos, the case Jessie was investigating felt very similar to that in books 1-2. It is also quite predictable. It began with a parallel narrative structure, which to me having read the book, just didn't work well with the story. Quite an exciting chase with the other ongoing plotline with her birth father. Not really dying to know what happens next though. Could be the last I read from the series.

Following on from the first 2 books it's a quick read moving the story on. by the end I really do need the 4 book as things are definitely starting to get more dangerous for our LAPD profiler and friends.
