Some killers are born. Others are made.

​As a rookie tabloid reporter, Jenna Sinclair made a tragic mistake when she outed Denny Dennison, the illegitimate son of an executed serial killer. So she hid behind her marriage and motherhood. Now, decades later, betrayed by her husband and resented by her teenage daughter, Jenna decides to resurrect her career—and returns to the city she loves.

When her former lover is brutally assaulted outside Jenna’s NYC apartment building, Jenna suspects that Denny has inherited his father’s psychopath gene and is out for revenge. She knows she must track him down before he can harm his next target, her daughter.

Meanwhile, her estranged husband, Zack, fears that her investigative reporting skills will unearth his own devastating secret he’d kept buried in the past.

From New York City to the remote North Fork of Long Island and the murky waters surrounding it, Jenna rushes to uncover the terrible truth about a psychopath and realizes her own investigation may save or destroy her family.

My Review: 

Fool Her Once is the first book I have read by the talented author, Joanna Elm. After reading this one, it will not be the last book I read by her. I thought it was a pretty good book to read. It was full of thrills, mystery, action, danger and suspense. There were a few twists and turns that I could not have predicted and had me gripping the edge of my seat. I was instantly immersed in Jenna’s story and was entertained by taking this roller coaster ride with her. There were a few scenes that did had me scratching my head but was quickly able to figure out what was going on. Even though it is over five hundred pages long, it was easy to read in a short time. I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen to Jenna and how it would all conclude for her in the end. Overall, I thought it was a great book to read. One that is most definitely worth reading and not to be missed. 

Fool Her Once will be getting four and a half stars from me. I believe readers and fans of thrillers and suspense filled genre of books will want to pick this one up. I am interested in reading more books by Joanna Elm in the future. 

I received a copy of Fool Her Once from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
