Review: Sacrificial Muse
Sacrificial Muse by Maegan Beaumont
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Detective Sabrina Vaughn is still recovering from psychological and physical damage she endured during the events chronicled in “Carved in Darkness.” Every day she receives nine red roses from an unknown person and passes them off to different people within her department. She doesn’t think much about this until the day she receives eight roses, a Berkeley student is murdered and the killer begins to send her messages and clues. Through circumstances beyond her control, she must work with the newspaper reporter who has been airing all of her dirty laundry and must complete her investigation outside of official police business. Why has this new psychopath targeted her? Can she stop him before all nine roses are gone?
Sacrificial Muse is the second book in the Sabrina Vaughn series. I highly advise readers to start with the first book and ride the experience into this tale. Both books will hook the reader from the beginning and keep them guessing who the perpetrator is. Unfortunately, if the reader starts with this book, it will spoil many elements if they wish to return to the first volume. Beaumont has truly created a cast of characters that are easy to understand and love. Reader will try and decide who is out for Sabrina, but hopefully they are able follow the clues and deduce along with this feisty detective. I gave the first book 5-stars and am shocked that I am giving the second book 5-stars. Most second books fall flat, but I am glad to say this breaks the mold.
