    4. Let s start with the positive ones whitch are The writing was fast, the characters were good, the love story between Erin and Journey was as much as it should be, all this forensic details were interesting Im fan of CSI as well so I enjoyed a little this part, the background so much as Erin s as much as Journey were strong of itself, the writer would be done with it much which she didn t But But all positive ones are negated by the killer s discovery which was too soon I was hoping that all th [...]

    6. I m always up for a mystery, so I was excited to try To Catch a Killer And there s so much about this book to like First, Erin was a great main character smart and relatable She hasn t had an easy life after the death of her mother she s been raised by her mom s best friend, and the fact that her mom s murder remains unsolved has cast a shadow over her life.Along with her friends, Lysa and Spam, Erin runs an investigation business where she delves into cases of cheating boyfriends, etc She s als [...]

    7. I liked the characters, the plot was pretty good and although in some moments it s easy to read by others it becomes a little heavy, on the other hand this isn t what mainly annoys me , actually was that I end up being quite predictable and I m a little disappointed about because I think the most important thing in a crime and mystery book is to surprise you and leave you speechless, but that hasn t happened The cover is incredible, I really love it and it goes well with the plot of the book3.5 [...]

    8. I would rate this one 3.5, it was a great YA thriller and a quick read I m very behind on my reviews currently but hopefully I ll get to them this month.

    9. This book is a disgrace to murder mysteries everywhere.Well, To Catch a Killer wasn t the worst mystery I ve ever read But it s definitely up there in the top five It was SO BORING.It doesn t give the perp right away, but it might as well have I still saw the end coming from a thousand miles away It failed to wow me with Erin, or Journey It kind of makes me sobCAUSE JOURNEY IS AN AWESOME NAME.WHY WhY SuCh An AwEsOmE nAme With such a boring story Ugh.It just plods along And it s completely idioti [...]

    10. I haven t read a mystery thriller novel in years, and this was the perfect book to remind me how enjoyable they are Erin has known tragedy her whole life, but instead of it sinking her into despair, it has made her smart A lot of things made this book enjoyable, including Erin s friends, Spam, Lysa, and Journey I found myself wanting of Spam and Lysa sleuthing, in fact , and the parts with her uncle Victor, but Erin s smarts topped the list The scenes where she uses forensic science to get answ [...]

    11. Es un libro entretenido y din mico, con un regustito a Pretty Little Liars.Va bien para un p blico muy joven, de preferencia no demasiado experimentado en el genero Sobre todo porque qui n es el verdadero asesino es obvio desde el minuto cero y las pistas que van dejando no son nada sutiles Adem s, es la t pica novela en la que te la pasas gritando Pero por qu no vas con la polic a, nenaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Porque es lo l gico, pero sino no habr a novela eso no quita que no sea irritante [...]

    12. I really don t often go out of my way to read thrillers or mysteries since it s not necessarily always my cup of tea However, I decided to give TO CATCH A KILLER a shot simply because I thought the forensics angle was interesting It was definitely engaging, and I was glued to the story till the end I also liked the bits of forensics that were included, since I m only familiar with forensics on a crime show basis But there were also definitely things that made me roll my eyes a bit, and also made [...]

    13. To Catch a Killer left me with mixed feelings I enjoyed the overall story but I wasn t impressed with the mystery It left to be desired However, as a hardcore crime show fan I was crazy excited about the forensic aspect in the book.My main problem with To Catch a Killer was the lack of suspense to the story I was expecting something gritty and dramatic but what I got was a little plain Almost anticlimactic Don t get me wrong, the story kept me guessing till the end but there just wasn t any rea [...]

    14.

    15. Check out this and other reviews on my young adult book blog, Here s to Happy Endings Every now and again, I love reading a mystery thriller much like this one They tend to be full of tense, edge of your seat action, and honestly make you guess at what s going on throughout the novel, leading up to this spectacular twist of a conclusion that you never see coming I read so many thrillers throughout the year, and I can t resist a new one when I see it.To Catch a Killer was on my list of must read [...]

    16.

    17. I feel really bad about DNFing this but I just am not even really interested in the rest of this book I read the first 145 pages and I m just not engaged, I m not connected to the characters at all, and everything so far seems to keep working out nice and smoothly for the characters Every time there s a hitch or complication, the MC just happens to know someone or have something that solves that little problem She knows someone who works at the police station, the FBI, as a lawyer, in technology [...]

    18. To Catch a Killer by Sheryl Scarborough was one of my most anticipated reads of 2017 I was completely drawn in by what this story was about and mystery thrillers suspense are probably my favorite type of story To Catch a Killer lived up to the expectations I had for it.I am going to point out that the names were not a favorite of mine Spam and Journey All though, Spam s name turned out to actually be Samantha but still, wasn t really a fan of those names That being said, Spam reminded me a lot a [...]

    21. 2.5 starsThere s always right and wrong And then there s what your gut tells you to do My gut has never steered me wrong.To Catch a Killer was an entertaining and engrossing story as most mysteries are , but even the fast pace of the story can t cover up the fact that the reveal itself was extremely predictable and the plot overall was very unrealistic.When Erin Blake was a toddler, her mother was murdered Now sixteen, Erin has made it her mission to discover what exactly happened to her mother [...]

    22. Omg this is what I been looking for I have been looking for a mystery thriller young adult for a while but nothing really got my attention, until this book And yeah, I know, in this type of books it is very obvious who the murderer is but I honestly don t care I really liked the main character she was badass an fucking intelligent and despite the fact that the friends were a little annoying sometimes, I also liked the friendship they had I liked Journey as well, my only problem with the romantic [...]

    23. To Catch a Killer was one of my most highly anticipated books of the year but it fell short It was a slow paced story that dragged out a predictable and unexciting plot While I liked that the mystery was very forensic orientated, I found it laughable how unrealistic it played out The foreshadowing was also incredibly clunky It made the identity of the murderer completely obvious within the first thirty pages The writing was also a bit uninspired The romance subplot did not help Do I even need to [...]

    24. Audio Edition Review Teen girl forensics investigator solving the murder of her beloved teacher Oh yeah, had to listen to this one This was my first encounter with author and narrator I loved how the author caught the feel of a YA contemporary with a compelling murder mystery and narrator nailed it with the teen scene.The story opens with Erin Blake discovering the grisly murder of her biology teacher Erin and her teacher were working on a project personal to Erin finding Erin s father through D [...]

    25. ARC provided by Baker and Taylor Interesting, but ultimately too YA for middle school It got kind of slow and high school whiny, and I knew right from the start who the murderer was, even if I didn t know exactly why For high school, I would probably buy it, but there needed to be chase scenes and explosions in order to keep middle school readers interested.

    26. Update Feb 2017I m putting this down for a little while When I previously read a sample this book seemed hugely promising Now it seems silly and I m not connecting with characters at all Hopefully it s just me and I will enjoy it at another time To Catch A Killer lands the reader right in the middle of the action from the very first page To Catch A Killer promises to be an exciting and suspense filled murder mystery, with a touch of romance, a strong friendship, and likeable main character.I wa [...]
