Ask for Andrea – Noelle W. Ihli

James Carson has gotten away with murder three times.

The only thing that might stop him from killing again? The three women he murdered.

He hunted them online, masquerading as an eligible bachelor. Then he played the perfect gentleman, a thick layer of charm and a thousand-watt smile hiding the fact that his first dates end in shallow graves.

What James doesn’t know is that his three victims have found each other. And that they’re coming for him.

Brecia, Meghan, and Skye might be dead, but they’re not gone. And they won’t rest until they find a way to keep him from killing again.

The haunt is on.

Book Info: Print length: 277. Publisher: Dynamite Books. Publication Date: April 15 2022

Noelle’s two great passions are murder and horses (separately, never together).

Noelle is a boy-mom to Luke and Max, and a cat-mom to Michelle. When she’s willing to wear pants (which is less often than she aspires to wear them), she can be found in mom jeans. Her husband Nate is the best person she knows.

My Review:

Another book which has been on my radar and is free on KU and another book that I practically inhaled within a few hours on holiday. This is the type of book that ticks every single requirement for me to give it a 5 star review.

The story is narrated by 3 women Brecia, Meghan, and Skye. These women have nothing in common at first glance, one is young single woman living on her own with her beloved cat, one is a career woman looking for love on-line and the other is 18 years old about to start University who currently works in a Coffee House. Unfortunately though, they do have one man in common – James Carson, a serial killer and the man who murders them all over the space of 3 years.

What comes next is a little “out-there” because we now follow Brecia, Meghan and Skye stuck in “limbo” between worlds whilst they come to terms with their deaths and what James has stolen from them. I don’t necessarily believe in ghosts, but if I did, then this is exactly what I’d like to believe happens to our souls, as the 3 women eventually meet up and try to stop James from killing again.

It’s original, it’s clever, it’s dark, it’s emotional, it’s disturbing, it has fabulous female narrators, it’s well plotted and has quite a few twists and turns thrown in. It has characters you genuinely care about, you become invested in their story and hope they get the closure they deserve and for an added bonus point, Noelle has included a link at the end of the book to download a short story about one of the characters after the book has finished.

In case you weren’t sure, I absolutely LOVED this book and my eyes leaked a little bit towards the end, although I think it might have been the suncream. I shall definitely be reading more from this author.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
