Ashley McBride is missing.  When Elise does not hear from her sister, she rushes home to find her.  She discovers there are other young women missing. A serial killer is running rampant.  He captures beautiful young blonde women, holds them captive and tortures them. Trent Brady is a former cop.  He has no intention of returning to police work.  When he meets Elise he finds himself drawn into the investigation of finding her sister.  Romance begins to blossom between Trent and Elise.  He attempts to keep her safe but the killer has his eyes on the perfect prize, Elise.

Love you To Death is an edge of your seat page turner.  Shannon Butcher does it again.  She brings readers a believable but frightening plot.  She combines suspense and romance to please the most discriminating reader.  The characters are well developed.  Elise is a strong lead; she is stubborn, intelligent, and determined, willing to meet danger head on.  Trent is sexy, handsome, and intelligent.  Butcher includes side plots and twists and turns to keep the reader eagerly turning pages.  She does not try to hide the identity of the villain.  She develops his character.  The reader knows will be appalled at his dastardly deeds. I would have liked to see more of Trent’s younger brother.   I read Love You To Death while on vacation.  My husband finally realized that I had to finish the book before we could go anywhere.  I had to see what happened to Ashley, Elise and Trent.
