"Fixing Perfect" Book Review

Fixing Perfect

by Therese M. Travis


24408469

In the community of Avalon on Catalina Island, a psychopath is kidnapping children and perfectly posing and painting the bodies of adult victims to resemble disabled artist, Robin Ingram. 

Robin struggles with feelings of imperfection, and knowing some madman has a macabre agenda—which includes fixing her—is unsettling. She’s relieved when paramedic Sam Albrecht steps up to help. 

Sam believes he knows the identity of the killer, and he wants nothing more than to prove it in order to keep Robin out of danger. Then Sam is arrested as a suspect for the crimes, and Robin’s life is thrown into a fresh whirlwind. She may not know who the real killer is, but she does know Sam is innocent…and she will find the proof to set him free, or she’ll die trying.

My Thoughts on this book:  I love the show "Criminal Minds" and this book reminded me of an episode of the show.  A psychopath is on the loose and in his sick, twisted mind, he thinks that he can fix a disabled female artist by kidnapping and killing innocent children and women. He then poses and paints the bodies and leaves them until the public understands his message.  This was a new author to me.  I had never even heard of her, but the description of the book drew me in.   I felt that her writing was well-structured and exciting. It left me eager to read more.  The only thing that bothered me as I read was that when I reached the middle of the book, I had already figured out who the psychopath was.  I like reading books where I don't know how the conflict will be resolved.  It makes the book more exciting when I am left to guess.  The suspense built and there were definitely many scenes with gory details.
        I highly recommend this book to those enjoy suspense.

MY STAR RATING:   4 Stars  (Scale of 1-5, with 1 beginning poor and 5 being excellent)
I received a copy of this book from netgalley.  A review was not required.  All opinions expressed are my own.

About the Author:
Therese M. Travis started writing when she discovered books came from people--around the age of eight. At eleven, she produced her first book, a single, handmade copy of The Ghost of Scotland Yard. She has since discovered that Scotland Yard is not in Scotland. Short stories and plays followed, and then she discovered Christian fiction, which combined writing stories and God, two of her favorite things.
