Count to Ten by Karen Rose


Well what can I say, words seem to elude me when I am trying to give this book the highest praise possible. It is fantastic read, even at 661 pages the book is hard to put down and the plot flows past so quickly.

The book is a great thriller and had me wondering who the killer might be, throughout the book Rose offers up different potential suspects which you think yeah it might be actually only then to find out it was an extremely well written red herring.

The main characters of the book are Reed Solliday, Mia Mitchell and of course the crazed killer that brings them all together. Fans of other Rose books will notice some familiar characters, but for new readers this addition doesn’t make a difference to the quality of the book.

The story is about the hell that two brothers endure in the foster care system, being let down when they needed protecting the most. One brother ends up dead and the other seeks revenge the only way he knows how, by setting off huge arson attacks in the homes of people responsible.

It is this case that brings Reed and Mia together, she is a homicide detective and he is an arson investigator. Together they try to bring the killer to justice before he kills too many people. Team work isn’t the only thing between these two as a flicker of romance lurks between them.

To find out what happens to all of these characters I would strongly suggest reading this book. It has everything that will make your spine tingle, it will make you laugh and it will make you want to weep!
