The Bride Collector, by Ted Dekker
I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was going to be a super scary slasher book and it was not. It was a good serial killer mystery. I mentioned before that this is my first Dekker book and I was not let down. I was able to connect with all the characters and stay connected and enjoy the plot through out the whole book. I read the book in a few sittings because it was "that interesting." I could totally see the movie version of this book while I was reading.
I liked how the plot included the patients at the Center for Wellness and Intelligence. I enjoy plots that have this element of "weaker" individuals that rely on their unique gift or intelligence to help in the race to stop a killer. It is also reminder that not all mental illness is a curse and that there can be a wealth of intelligence behind those that are otherwise doomed to a medicated life of seclusion. (It sparked an interest in this topic for me).
To read more about the book check out my giveway post. Anymore that I have to say about the characters or connections in the story I feel spoil the plot. I also think it will spoil whether I say I love or hate the ending. You are on your own for this!
I liked the book and had have a great time participating in the Blog Tour. Thank you Hachette books for my free ARC copy.
