Guest Review: Stalking Sapphire by Mia Thompson

Jessica, my guest reviewer, has stopped by today to share her thoughts on Stalking Sapphire by Mia Thompson.

Goodreads Summary:

Despite the illusion Sapphire Dubois presents to the rest of the world, she is not just your stereotypical 22-year old Beverly Hills heiress; she hunts serial killers. While her fellow heirs spend their nights with trending celebs and drugs at the hottest club, Sapphire secretly spends hers luring, capturing, and anonymously handing over So-Cal’s most wanted killers to the police — just your average Tuesday night.

What Sapphire doesn’t know is that one of her adversaries is watching her every move, aware of both her true identity and her unconventional hobby. Needless to say, he doesn’t approve. Used to being the one who redefines the definition of predator and prey, Sapphire’s world abruptly shatters when a gruesome ‘gift’ arrives for her at the Beverly Hills Country Club. With her involuntary crush, handsome Detective Aston Ridder, close on her tail, Sapphire now has to rethink her routine strategy and figure out how to capture a killer who already knows she’s coming.

Publication Date: April 2, 2013

Jessica's Review:

The writing was solid with only a few grammar issues, but I was a bit disappointed with the lack of depth to the relationship between Sapphire and Aston. One drink, flash forward to the morning after, a couple insulting lines, and then nothing except when he's guarding her until the end when they kiss again, only it doesn't mean much because she's "engaged." Hard to root for them as a couple even if I like them individually when there's not much to go on. The thriller aspect of the story was fantastic, but I wish she also would have covered Sapphire's previous captures a little more to give you a bit more history and what drives her.

Rating: 4/5 Stars
