  • Not to be missed!

    DC Maggie Jamieson is frantic when approaching a crime scene. As she tries to get a hold of herself, Maggie tries to prepare for the fact that the body might be someone she really cares about, her close friend Dr. Kate Moloney. Is the body Kate's? What of the stalker Kate has had for awhile now? Maggie thinks that the stalker has finally made his mark. Instead, as the body is turned over from her back, Maggie is more than relieved but a bit confused when she discovers that the body is not Kate's. Why does she resemble her? When Maggie does reach Kate, she tries not to scare her, but tells her that the stalker is almost definitely a murder. It certainly cannot be coincidence that the staged body resembles Kate. Living dolls. That is how the police - and the killer - are referring to the victims. And, yes, I say victims in plural because more dead bodies abound, and Maggie does her darnedest to stop the killer and to keep Kate safe. Meanwhile, Maggie must contend for her growing feeling for Kate. Well! 5 Stars go to this fantastic book by Noelle Holten!! Just read it in one sitting. The tension level is incredibly high as Maggie and her team race against time to find the killer. Meanwhile, Maggie has some issues she is facing, and that does well to help to understand her as a character. Since I read the first two books in the series, and will be reading all future books, I love being able to feel for a character. A note to readers of this book and series. While this book could be read as a standalone novel, it begins exactly where the previous book, Dead Wrong, left off, which continued where the first book in the series, Dead Inside, left off. Thus, this book, Dead Perfect, leaving readers with a hanging scene, will no doubt leave readers for the fourth book in the series. Well done! Many thanks to Harper Impulse and Killer Reads and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

  • Character flaws a bit too prevalent😐

    Not as good as previous in the series🤔 3.5-4🌟stars There was some great tension throughout this story, but something just did not hit the mark. I had guessed the stalker/murderer very early in the story and could not understand why heroine DC Maggie Jamieson, her colleagues and even Maggie's targeted friend Kate ignored an obvious line of investigation until so late in the game. As to the characters Maggie and Kate, both had major issues that reduced their likability. Kate knew she was in danger yet she was stubbornly reckless about her safety; she did not seem concerned that her behavior caused concern and extra work for others. Maggie was awfully easily riled up which did not win her any points at the police station. Finally, the investigation outcome was a bit disappointing. This was the second book in the series I read and, overall, I preferred Dead Wrong. Thanks to Harper Collins/One More Chapter and NetGalley for sharing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

  • creepy substitutes

    When a body is found in the park, DC Maggie Jamieson’s heart stops dead because the victim looks almost exactly the same as her friend and colleague Kate Moloney., a woman for whom she secretly she has feelings that go beyond friendship. She thinks the killer might be the same person that was stalking Kate by leaving creepy gifts and messages. Then, another girl is abducted in similar circumstances and is later also found dead, dressed and made up to look like the dr. It looks as if he’s practising for his ultimate target and it becomes more and more certain that Kate is the intended prize. With the life of her friend at stake, Maggie can’t remain her usual focused and clever self and the list of possible perpetrators grows. In retrospect, she misses certain clues, but that’s always easy to say from the sideline. I don’t think she can be accused of negligence. If the investigation takes them in the wrong direction that’s not their fault, they would have been wrong not to look into those things. She even has to work together with Julie, a journalist that accused her wrongly in an earlier case. It leaves to be seen if they come closer together at the end of the book. Maggie’s friend and colleague Nathan Wright is now acting DS, though happy with the promotion he has to adapt to not being as actively involved in the investigation as he’s used to. Despite not coveting that position herself, sometimes Maggie has problems when he has to comment on her behaviour or attitude. She tends to speak and act before she thinks and some see this as arrogance, even when this is merely enthusiasm. Though the story is well written and filled with suspense, I think the story self is a bit unlikely. Early on I started thinking, why would he take the substitutes first and only then the real deal? Everything fell more or less into place at the end. I did clock the real killer this time fairly early on (most often, I don’t). I haven’t read the previous 2 books in this series, but I’ve learned that those also end with the start of a new crime, that will open the story of the next book. You can read this book as a standalone without problems, but in several places, it’s visible that some things have happened prior to this book. I thank Harper Collins UK, One More Chapter and Netgalley for a free ARC of this book and this is my honest review of it.

  • Good - but with Blatant Clues!

    I've been so looking forward to this one - the third book in an absolutely terrific series! When Maggie is called to the latest crime scene where a body has been found in the local park, she is appalled to see the deceased has been made to resemble her good friend, Dr Kate Moloney. As if things weren't bad enough with Kate having acquired a stalker, the latest developments put Maggie and the rest of the team on high alert. But why Kate? And why the strange look-alikes? As with the previous novels, this is a well-planned thriller with a great mix of personal and professional making it a very appealing read. Plenty of twists, turns and unexpected developments plus an insight into what comes next at the very end - very cleverly done. Maggie Jamieson is a beautifully developed, multi-faceted character and her gut feeling is never to be ignored. This one is everything I hoped it would be but it was rather spoiled by the clues as to the perpetrator's identity which I picked up on very quickly as I began reading. From then on it was just a matter of reading until he was caught. Perhaps my detective instincts were just particularly alert today, but it did rather take the shine off the book for me. It's still a good crime thriller though, and one I'm happy to give four stars.
