All the Pretty Faces by Rita Herron

Book Description

Josie DuKane is on shaky ground. Having narrowly escaped the notorious Bride Killer, she penned a tell-all memoir that dug up a town’s dark past. Now the book is being made into a movie, and Josie must visit the very place that will trigger an avalanche of unwanted memories—Graveyard Falls. On the heels of her arrival, she receives a gruesome photograph of a dead woman with talon marks carved into her face. And worse, Josie just might be the next victim.
Torn between guilt, justice, and revenge, Special Agent Dane Hamrick will do anything to find the man who brutally murdered his sister. When he realizes the recent tragedies in Graveyard Falls bear an uncanny resemblance to her death, he volunteers to spearhead the investigation. But doing so means teaming up with Josie.
Nothing prepares him for the feelings the beautiful, tough woman evokes. As the body count rises and the suspect pool widens, Josie and Dane must put aside their growing attraction to run down the killer who devastated both their lives.
A killer who seems determined to destroy all the pretty faces.…

All the Pretty Faces is the second book in Rita Herron's Graveyard Falls series.  It is also the first book that I've read by this author.  Personally, I felt that I was missing a big part of the backstory with not reading All the Beautiful Brides first.  This book was just okay for me.  I found the main characters to be somewhat... blah.  I thought the storyline and premise of All the Pretty Faces was good though.

I thought the hero was standoffish (and didn't come off as the "tortured hero" as I think the author was trying to convey him to be.  He was just ehh for me.  Also while the heroine was more personable, I didn't think she stood out to me as a leading lady for me.

One thing that annoyed me was throughout the book the word HOSPITAL (I'm assuming) was spelled HOSPITALIC.  Each and every time.  I didn't know hospitalic was a word, so I googled it and Google asked me if I meant "hospice", so I have no clue what happened there between the author and editing.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

**I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.**
