Blog Tour & Review: For All To See by Megan Mitcham

For All to See by Megan Mitcham

Pristine waters and purified evil.

Two by two, dark-haired beauties vanish only to reappear as hanging, plundered corpses. The Virgin Islands boast diamond-white beaches, lush green mountains, a rich cultural heritage—and a brutal killer.

Three years on the “Field-Dresser” case and Special Agent Nathan Brewer is days away from catching the bastard—if he can convince a certain brunette to trust him. Only the woman is more likely to take a casual stroll on the surface of the sun.

After fleeing her troubles in the United States for the quiet life of a school teacher on the island of Tortola, Madelyn Garrett never imagined she’d be fixated upon by pure evil.

In a fight for her life—with a dwindling number of friends—she must rely on her cunning and Nathan’s skills for survival.


My Review: 

For All to See starts out strong and doesn't falter.  We meet Madelyn and her best friend Nichole and quickly learn a bit about them, though not a lot. It's not your typical girl's night out, and it doesn't end on good terms, it seems.  The next morning, Nichole is missing and Madelyn finds herself in the company of an FBI agent, Nathan. 

Madelyn has suffered her own troubled past and thought she'd found a quiet escape on the island where she's started her new life. Unfortunately that is all about to change when she becomes a target for a mad man.  Madelyn is a strong character, though you can tell she's suffered something in the past, she's also strong, and has a depth of loyal friendship many don't possess, all while be untrusting.  She feels things on a different level than most, I believe.  She tries her best to be fully independent but sometimes needs someone. She's also full of Sass. 

Nathan finds himself instantly allured by Madelyn, he feels the desperate need to protect her. He also recognizes in her a painful history, though he doesn't know the details.  Nathan is struggling with an incident where his partner was injured and he's also upset that they have not caught the murderer yet. 

The images and feelings as I read things from teh Killer's POV really hit on a visceral level and left me in a little shock.  Made me feel evil and revulsion as if it cloaked me. But it made the hunt in the book more important too.  Each step I wanted the killer found and caught.  

For All to See was everything suspenseful, thrilling, with a side of romance and emotional pain. The murder mystery surrounded the characters like a shroud and as I read each page my anticipation built and I questioned what would happen next.  I really feel the suspense and danger surround Madelyn and Nathan made the build up of the story SO much better.
