Review: To Coach A Killer by: Victoria Laurie


Title: To Coach A Killer
Author: Victoria Laurie
Publisher: Kensington
Series: The Life Coach Mysteries #2
Format: Hardcover (304 p.) Personal Purchase

Description:

Soaking up a luxurious new chapter alongside her saucy bestie, Cat Cooper plans on emerging as the premier life coach in East Hampton by summertime. All she has to do is survive an offseason replete with desolate beaches, slow business, and murder . . .

As the Hamptons drags through early spring, Cat's shot at becoming the toast of the town in time for Memorial Day is dwindling--and fast. The only client she can find has been housebound for decades and claims to be the victim of a devasting curse. Then there's the matter of Detective Shepherd's intense jealousy over Maks Grinkov, the handsome bad boy who approaches Cat with an unusual offer she can't stop thinking about. Havoc finally breaks loose when a string of murders rocks the coastal community, landing Maks on the hook as the culprit . . .

While the body count rises, Cat goes from life coaching to sleuthing for the truth about Maks's less-than-wholesome background. But after digging deeper, she questions if Detective Shepherd had an unwitting hand in a related homicide case after tangling with the wrong people. With a storm approaching shore and no one to trust, Cat and her sharp-tongued best friend, Gilley, must solve a client's curse and a series of violent deaths before a killer sends them all sailing to their doom . . . 

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Gilley and Cat as they are meeting their first new client who feels he is cursed and Cat is having trouble buying into the curse but using some techniques from Heath to help her client over come his fear and to hopefully rid the curse on him.

When Cat wants to help Det. Shepard solve the murder case of his wife.  She was murdered years ago and her murder happened while she was showing a house.  Who killed her and why?  Is it connected to the Angel of Death?  An assassin who gets paid after a job is completed.  Maks also uses Cat a few times in this which hurts her relationship with Shepard.  Will they ever fix their relationship?

This book was incredible with so much going on.  It was like a total rollercoaster ride which Ms. Laurie always takes her readers on when you open one of her books!  Can't wait to see what is next in the Hamptons!
