Title: The Hunt
Author: Allison Brennan
Length: 391 pages
Genre: romantic suspense
Plot Basics: Twelve years ago, Miranda Moore was the lucky one. After she and her friend were kidnapped by a serial killer that the press dubbed The Butcher, Miranda managed to escape. With the help of Special Agent Quincy (Quinn) Peterson, Miranda helped the FBI piece together a lot of the evidence on the Butcher, but never enough to find him. Now, working in Search and Rescue, Miranda has dedicated her life to finding the killer. He's struck again, and Quinn Peterson also comes back to work the case. But being back around Quinn also does a number on Miranda's heart
Banter Points: This book was definitely better than Brennan's first (The Prey). The plot was tighter, the romance more believable, etc. Word Nerd could really get into the characters of Miranda and Quinn and see how this one case had affected them so much.
Bummer Points: Brennan still is repetitious. She repeated facts over and over from the backstory. Maybe it's just Word Nerd, but the repetition was a tad insulting as a reader, like Brennan didn't trust her readers to get it the first time.
Word Nerd recommendation: A good beach book.
