Serial Date, by D.V. Berkom

“Serial Date – an entirely new take on reality TV, where beautiful young women are set-up with ex-cons pretending to be ‘serial kilers’ but what happens when a bonafide serial killer gets thrown into the mix? Cue Leine Basso, an ex assassin brought in to provide some no-nonsense extra security.  Unfortunately for her this serial killer is looking to play a deadly game…”

Rating:  4.5 stars

Genre: Thriller

This book is a mix of intrigue, humour (Bountiful is a particular favourite), romance, and a great selection of dysfunctional relationships all of which result in an enjoyable but light reading experience.  What I had the most difficulty accepting was the idea of the reality show ‘Serial Date’, perhaps this could have been explained more with a short scene (I’m thinking the director pitching the show to executives) but more likely it has something to do with my in-built dislike of reality shows…  So, it definitely piqued my interest when the contestants started dropping like flies. 😉

Why should you read it? In a nutshell it’s a fast-paced, non-linear story with some creepy elements mashed together with a splash of romance and dark humour.  What’s not to like?
