Genre: mystery, thriller, suspense

Description (from Goodreads):

This book is the third in a series.

Global counterfeiting mastermind Giorgio Cattoretti takes Elaine under his wing, tempting her with heady amounts of money to apply her expert knowledge to improve his near-perfect U.S. bills. But Elaine still loves Nick. When Nick enters the picture, it maybe too late. With nowhere to turn, will Elaine give in to a life of crime, or will she find the love she has always wanted?


I was given a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

Murder was a little different from Lust (#1) and Money (#2) because Giorgio Cattoretti’s story was a big part of this book. He’s one of those characters that you love to hate. Even by the time I knew his full story, I had no compassion for the man.

Elaine was stuck with Cattoretti in Murder and it was easy to feel sorry for her. She’d been set up and had nowhere to go. I could feel her despair and I felt that if she were a weaker person that she wouldn’t have survived. This book was more suspense than the first two books in the series and I really liked the ending.

Just like Money (#2), this is a good book but I recommend reading the first two before reading this one. It makes this one that much better!

Available on Amazon: Lust, Money & Murder (Books 1, 2 & 3) or Murder.
