Publisher's Summary

When a local girl falls prey to a sadistic serial killer, Nashville homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson and her lover, FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin, find themselves in a joint investigation pursuing a vicious murderer.
The Southern Strangler is slaughtering his way through the Southeast, leaving a gruesome memento at each crime scene – the prior victim’s severed hand.
Ambitious TV reporter Whitney Connolly is certain the Southern Strangler is her ticket out of Nashville; she’s got a scoop that could break the case. She has no idea how close to this story she really is – or what it will cost her.
As the killer spirals out of control, everyone involved must face a horrible truth – that the purest evil is born of private lies.

Distracting subplot and uninteresting characters

Not sure why this author felt the need to insert a subplot about a Rainman killer into this story. Quite frankly I had some difficulty differentiating between the Rainman and the Strangler, especially when my listens were short and spread out. The romance between Taylor and Baldwin added little or nothing to the story and their relationship gave us little worth remembering. As the book approached its conclusion, there was little left for the listener to figure out. The Strangler's motivation was a stretch and I just don't think this story was very believable, even for fiction. I would have liked to see better character development and improved story telling.

Chic Flick on Tape

Would you try another book from J. T. Ellison and/or Joyce Bean?

I took all the J.T. Ellison books off my wish list. I found the romance between the lead characters to be a distraction and thought it did very little to humanize them.

Would you recommend All the Pretty Girls to your friends? Why or why not?

I didn't enjoy the book but if you like a little romance with your detective/light perhaps it might appeal to you. I prefer a little more hard-boiled cop story with realistic police work. The heroine could have just as easily been a school teacher and there was very little detective work involved. Predictable and unimpressive.
