When New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards brought her irresistible brand of hot passion and chilling suspense to the paranormal romance scene with The Last Victim, it was just the beginning. Now her series cranks up the deadly danger and intense desire to the next level, as sexy serial killer hunter Charlotte Stone returns to action in her thrilling second adventure.
Dr. Charlotte “Charlie” Stone has dedicated her career as a psychiatrist to exploring the darkest territory of all: the hearts and minds of serial killers. It’s a job she’s uniquely suited for, thanks to the secret talent that gives her an uncanny edge—Charlie can see dead people, whose tormented spirits cry out to her for the justice only she can provide. This blessing—or curse—gives Charlie the power to hunt down and catch madmen and murderers. It’s also turned her love life upside down by drawing her into a hopelessly passionate relationship with the lingering ghost of charismatic bad boy Michael Garland.
But there’s little time for romance with her supernatural suitor when murder comes pounding at Charlie’s door in the form of a terrified young woman fleeing a homicidal maniac. Saving her life places Charlie squarely in the cross-hairs of a sadistic predator nicknamed “the Gingerbread Man,” notorious for manipulating his victims like pawns in a deadly chess game. And now the queen this psychopath’s bent on capturing is Charlie. Refusal to play will only put more innocent lives in danger. Matching wits with this cunningly twisted opponent will require all of Charlie’s training and expert skills. But even with her devilish “guardian angel”—not to mention her favorite flesh-and-blood Fed, Tony Bartoli—watching her beautiful back, the Gingerbread Man’s horrifying grin might be the last thing Charlie ever sees.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed...:( I have to say I absolutely LOVE Karen Robards!! It all started with Maggy's Child so many years ago and she has always been my go to girl when all other authors have failed me. My fave is probably Bait or Shiver, I'm not sure. Man! Can this woman write a love scene or what??? Anywho, so I was really excited when I found out she was going to be writing a series then I read The Last Victim and absolutely loved it! But I find I do not whatsoever like Michael Garland. Charlie is supposed to be one smart cookie and there she is falling for a ghost. A GHOST!! I'm starting to read The Last Kiss Goodbye only on page 9 and I can already feel my interest waning. I want Michael Garland GONE. I'm sorry if this review offends anyone but it's how I feel.
