Awesome Book–You Cannot Put Down
Jody J says…
Jenna Scali works for Dr. Bingham whom is a shrink part time and, in her spare time she is going to college, takes belly dance classes with her friend Quentin being a well-respected history professor at the local university and her belly dance instructor. She lives alone with her two kitties, Churchill and Stalin. She is dating a very handsome, jealous, and obsessive business owner who thinks Jenna should spend every spare minute of her time either calling him, or being with him.
She begins to get emails at work from someone that claims to be from a Finland, telling Jenna in very gruesome detail about the girl he murdered the night before, and proceeds to tell Jenna that this is all of her fault. These continue until three girls end up murdered.
She sets out to become her own detective and find out who is sending her these emails, which of course makes the very handsome single detective on the case very unhappy. Each time she gets an email at work, whoever is murdering these girls goes into explicit details to Jenna about the girl’s death.
I would recommend anyone who loves a good suspense/thriller to pick up a copy of e-Murderer, you will not be sorry you did. It is a fantastic book!
E-mails from a Murderer.

Jenna Scali works for a psychiatrist, Niles Bingham, and goes to school part time. She is also juggling two boyfriends. When she starts receiving creepy emails at work, she is alarmed and shows them to her boss. Dr B brushes them off with reminders of how important confidentiality is in his profession. But when the emails seem to mirror murders that are being committed, Jenna freaks. And what do these murders have to do with her?
There are a host of characters in the book that could be considered as suspects. I was picking and discarding as I went along. Jenna did eventually go to the police but she never seemed to grasp that the POLICE do the investigating. I was constantly worried for her safety and that of her pets. Be-case of this, I read the book in one sitting. I wasn’t any better than Jenna at picking the murderer.
I really enjoyed the book. The characters were all believable and well-drawn. The mystery was good and twisty. Try the book. I think you’ll be glad you did. There were two chapters at the end of the book of the author’s next book. That looked good, too. I put that one on my wish list.
Engaging Story with Likable Protagonist
I received a free copy of e-Murderer: A Jenna Scali Mystery by Joan C. Curtis in exchange for my unbiased review of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery because it was neither explicitly violent nor sexual. Proof that great writing need not rely on a shock factor. This is my first reading of a novel by Joan Curtis, but it will not be my last.
