Publisher's Summary

From the author of ebook number one best seller and Sunday Times top 10 best seller After Anna.
A serial killer is stalking your hometown. He has a type: all his victims look the same. And they all look like you.
Kate returns from a post-break-up holiday with her girlfriends to news of a serial killer in her hometown - and his victims all look like her.
It could, of course, be a simple coincidence. Or maybe not. She becomes convinced she is being watched, followed even. Is she next? And could her mild-mannered ex-boyfriend really be a deranged murderer? Or is the truth something far more sinister?

Decent suspense thriller makes the mark

Killing Kate is about a 28 year old lawyer who has just broken up with her boyfriend. The boyfriend is taking pretty hard, but Kate is ready to move on. She meets a man who has the ability to draw her in, and things seem good until a recent string of grisly murders in her own backyard threatens girls her age- who look a lot like Kate. In a race against time, Kate needs to protect herself from danger and doesn't know who she can trust anymore.
This book started out a little trite but gradually hooked me. The storyline became more sophisticated and the characters well drawn out. Kate does not come off as too naive or trusting- you can identify with her situation and see that she makes educated decisions that sometimes just bring her closer to danger. I enjoyed seeing the close friendships between Kate and her long-standing group of friends who have her back. The suspense started to build pretty quick until I was holding my breath at the end to see whether the killer would be caught in time to save Kate! The narration was great and overall, while this book may not be a heavy-hitter, it was well written and enjoyable, and I would recommend it as an easy-to-read page turner!
