After a tip from a reporter, Eve Dallas finds the body of a young woman in a Delancey Street dumpster. Just hours before, the news station had mysteriously received a portfolio of professional portraits of the woman. The photos seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary for any pretty young woman starting a modeling career. Except that she wasn't a model. And that these photos were taken after she had been murdered. Now Dallas is on the trail of a killer who's a perfectionist and an artist. He carefully observes and records his victim's every move.

Great book! Love the characters and how they grow and develop.

However my review is more of a warning... a few reviews down, there are huge spoilers! Shame on that person for breaking down almost the entire story and giving away huge developments. 😡

Katie Connell is a high-strung attorney whose sloppy drinking habits and stunted love life collide hilariously during a doomed celebrity case in Dallas. She flees Texas for the Caribbean and escapes professional humiliation, a broken heart, and a wicked Bloody Mary habit, but ends up trading one set of problems for another when she begins to investigate the suspicious deaths of her parents on the island of St. Marcos.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

i really enjoyed books 1 and 2, however, somewhere in book 3, Katie turned into this excessively whiney and annoying woman who almost made me unable to finish. Some of it may have been the narrator and how she preformed, but it was also the story line. It called for whiney and annoying.

If you’ve listened to books by Pamela Fagan Hutchins before, how does this one compare?

Books 1 and 2 of the Katie series were good, disappointed in book 3

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The voice was too whiney throughout book 3

Did The Katie & Annalise Box Set inspire you to do anything?

No
