Book Review: Three, Four… Better Lock Your Door by Willow Rose

51Ve+6ojq5L._SY346_Three, Four… Better Lock Your Door

Synopsis:

It was supposed to be a night of fun, pleasure, lust and pain for Susanne Larsen when she agreed to meet with a stranger from a S&M chatroom. She met him for dinner that later led to casual, anonymous sex at the hotel room at the local inn.

But someone else showed up in the room and suddenly it was no longer a game.

Zeeland Times star reporter Rebekka Franck and her photographer Sune are covering the case for the newspaper and soon they find themselves deeply involved in a story of terrifying horror and ugly secrets.

D.S. Williams Review:

This is the second book in the series, and I have to admit, I’m feeling a little bit ambiguous about the series at this stage and I’m not sure if I will continue reading them. Ms. Rose picks up the action two years after the first book’s events take place, and a new serial killer is stalking the streets of Denmark, murdering in a supposedly random manner, and Rebekkah Franck in reporting the story… and with the help of her photographer Sune outsmarting the police in regards to catching the killer.
Once again, I have to point out that Ms. Rose would benefit greatly from a proofreader/editor. I suspect English is not her first language, and consequently, there are a great deal of syntax and spelling errors, which mar the overall reading experience. Having said that, the pacing is quite good, and the story does hold the reader’s attention… but in a great many sections, I experienced a sense of sameness with the storyline, in comparison to the previous book. Especially with regards to the main character of Rebekka Franck, who is supposedly in her late thirties, but her decision making at times can seem somewhat immature.
As another reviewer said, Ms. Rose has set this story two years after the first one, and yet there seems to be no change in the behaviour/demeanour of the main characters. They haven’t shown any maturity, either in development or behaviour. I found myself frustrated at times in the way the characters approached the situations they found themselves in and questioned their decisions, which is never a good situation to find myself in as a reader.
I will move on to reading other books in the meantime, and will whether I will continue reading the series after reading some other reviewers thoughts.
