This is fast paced novel, full of mystery, it features well rounded characters who are in some cases are more than a little flawed and is a great follow up to the short story Crushed Gardenia's.

I couldn't put this down and have read it all in one sitting, i absolutely loved this novel and it will most likely be one that I read over and over and I'm sure Rae Hatting will become one of my favourite characters, i cant wait to read the next novel and hope it will be released quickly.

This is the second book in the Rae Hatting mysteries. It’s broken into several parts. Part one takes place in 2005 with Lucas Thompson who is investigating a possible serial killer. All the bodies are left staged as a character from a fairy tale. We follow his frustrations as the clues that he needs to capture the killer, or killers eludes him. Melinda Rawlings is an FBI profiler, who uncovers some new evidence. But as she gets closer to discovering who the killer is, she incurs his/her wrath.

After a seven year lull, another body is found posed like a fairy tale character. Devastated by his grief, Lucas has pulled away from lie, hiding away in his cabin. Wanting to catch the serial killer once and for all, Captain Frank Harris begs Rae Hatting to come investigate the murders and hopefully find them some new leads. But the biggest obstacle Rae faces is getting Lucas back on the case.

I really liked the characters of Lucas and Melinda. Their romance may have happened a little fast, but they were meant for each other. I don’t want to put out any spoilers, but Osborne did a great job with Lucas and his grief. Then Rae Hatting comes on the scene. I enjoyed the interplay between Rae and Lucas, and you could see a spark between the two.

Even though the story is told from a first person POV, there was no confusion on who was telling the story. Osborne did a good job at keeping their personalities separate. The story was fast-paced, well-written, and kept me turning the pages. As for a plot twist, I can’t say I was surprised at the ending.

My only point of contention, Frank and Lucas knew who the killer was at the end of Part One. I just couldn’t understand why they didn’t pursue their leads at that time.

If you love a good psychological thriller, with a little romance, I recommend this book. I’m looking forward to reading more about Lucas and Rae and I give the book 4 feathers

This story was truly a treat. Not knowing what to expect, I loved the way the author started the story and then, bringing in the main character a bit later. Rae is indeed pretty amazing. Although I hadn't read the prequel to this story, it was not a problem. I didn't feel like I was lost at all, so this is definitely a stand alone.

The Fairest Of Them is about a serial killer and a police officer, Luke, who'd been trying to solve the cases for several years. I loved getting to know Luke and all that he was going through during the entire story. My favorite character was Rae (no surprise there). She was strong, focused, and a no-nonsense kind of girl.

The plot was developed nicely as were each characters. Now I'm interested in where the author takes the sequel, especially with Luke and Rae's relationship. Great job!

I enjoyed the character of Rae Hatting in ‘Crushed Gardenias’ and was pleased when the author created a series. The plot is intricate and well thought out with a murderer obsessed with Fairy Tales who crafts the crimes to fit the stories. I liked Luke Thompson. A few times I wanted to give him a whack around the back of the head though because he totally wears his heart on his sleeve. Rae’s great. I couldn’t be friends with her because she’s far too scary but as a government agent, she’s awesome. I love the dynamic which the storyline sets up between the characters and liked Rae heaps more than the other female in the story; Rae has so much more going for her. I felt as though the author had more of an affinity with Rae Hatting and expressed herself through crafting the character. There’s a go-getter-don’t-mess-with-me-spirit which is going to be great fun to watch play out. Definitely grabbing the next one in the series.
