“Must-read romantic suspense.” —USA Today’s Happy Ever After

A heart-pounding thriller about a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding—from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.

As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.

Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

3.5 Stars, Rounded Intrigued by a new series from Lisa Renee Jones, Lilah Love popped up to fill that promise. Lilah is a profiler for the FBI, and a string of murders that stretch across the country will test her skills and her courage. She’s driven and intelligent, with a knack for out-thinking suspects using her experience and training to stay one step ahead. She’s moved on from her family and their expectations: raised in privilege she’s taken a big leap away, and truly never was interested in returning. But, this current case is raising red flags and a trip back to the Hamptons where she grew up just may be needed. If only the anonymous threats, and the worries that the trail will lead her to her ex and the only man she ever loved: Kane Mendez, son of a major crime boss. Of course, when you add in her own connections to the town’s management; her father the mayor, her brother the Police Chief and, of course, the connection to the illegal crime boss’s son. There are plenty of worries in her return, and even more secrets that she wants to forget. Full of secrets, tension and more twists than should be allowed, the story ends on a cliffhanger with many elements yet to sort out. Trademark LRJ writing: the secrets and tensions all play into the action, as questions about Lilah, the killer and her own hidden past are asked, with answers coming in dribs and drabs, each bringing forward more questions and possible solutions to the mystery. A clever start for the first in a series, sure to please fans of the author who are not daunted by the wait to have the cliffhanger resolved. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

3.5 Stars Murder Notes is the first book in Lisa Renee Jones’s series about FBI Special Agent Lilah Love. It’s also the first time I have read this author. Murder Notes was a good book. It could have been great, but I felt like it started off slower than it should have considering the fact that Lilah curses like a sailor and is a hot mess. That generally makes for a fun-loving thrill ride based on other books I have read similar to this one. Considering the subject matter, maybe I just set my expectations too high. Lilah Love has been in Los Angeles for two years and she has nightmares about something that happened to her back in her hometown of The Hamptons. Interestingly enough, her most recent case has similarities to that incident. To add insult to injury, a murder in The Hamptons, similar to her current case gets her sent back to her hometown to find out if it is the work of a serial killer. Without giving too much away, let’s say Lilah’s past and present collide on multiple levels. Her brother is the Police Chief in The Hamptons and her father is running for office. In addition, her ex-boyfriend Kane Mendez is now running his alleged crime family. All of this makes matters very complicated considering Lilah is sure her family and so called friends may be connected to both her shadowy past and this somewhat shady present. The suspect list gets longer as Lilah gets deeper into the investigation. There are a lot of layers to Murder Notes. That’s both good and bad. The complexity of the investigation makes the book very interesting. Where I had issue is that when I finally got into a rhythm, the book ended. I can’t even say that it ended on a cliffhanger, it just ended. Clearly, it continues in the next book but I wish I had known that ahead of time. I felt let down and that I had wasted my time getting invested. I will definitely read the next book, Murder Girl, because I have to know the whodunnit but I hope the second book continues at a faster pace than how this one started. Lilah Love is a likeable character and I really want to know how she figures this all out and how this will affect her future. **Received a copy from the publisher and reviewed voluntarily.**

Lilah Love is a profiler with the FBI. She has a knack for getting inside the head of a killer. But when a body turns up bearing the same tattoo of an attacker from her past, memories start to flood her and she finds herself back home in the Hamptons. To the one person place she never wanted to go back to. Kane Mendez is no stranger to secrets. As head of the Menendez family cartel he knows a thing or two about getting things done quietly and effectively. He also knows a thing or two about Lilah Love since they dated until she decided to leave town a couple of years ago. Lilah comes back into town with murder on her mind and the plan to stay as far away from Kane as possible. She needs to find out who is killing these people ASAP. When she starts to receive taunting notes however, she realizes she has very few people she can actually trust. Lilah and Kane are opposites in some ways and similar in others. They're not exactly on the same side of the law and yet they work very well together. I love the push and pull of their relationship. Their attraction/chemistry to each other, even though it simmers just below the surface at first, is undeniable. Lilah has a badge, yet Kane has connections everywhere and can help her get further in her investigation. But can she trust him? Lilah soon discovers that one thing's for sure; in the Hamptons, nothing is black and white and everyone seems to have a secret. Fair warning... This book ends with a cliffhanger, but luckily the second book, Murder Girl is already out so you can pick up right where you left off.

Wow! A fast paced, highly detailed who-done-it storyline starring a female FBI profiler who gets called back to her home town in New York to work a murder case and her family is right in the thick of things. Lilah Love reminds me a lot of J.D. Robb’s Eve Dallas character because she’s smart, tough as nails and exceedingly talented at her job. She’s not afraid to kick butt and take names especially when it looks like her father, her brother and her ex-lover are all mixed up in a tangled mess of clues she has to chase down. Adding to the building suspense is a huge secret from Lilah’s past that a stalker threatens to expose while he watches her every move. Lilah has no choice but to follow each and every clue, even when her father, brother and her ex-lover are suspects she has to clear to get to the truth. This is a smartly woven thriller that ends with a shocking cliffhanger and the best part is the anticipation of waiting for the next book to be published. I can’t wait to find out what happens next. I read a copy of this book provided by Montlake Romance through NetGalley and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
Bette313 More than 1 year ago
Intense, fast paced, and exciting. This is the first book in the Lilah Love series and it is fantastic. Lilah is one of the best profilers the FBI has working for them. She knows exactly how to get into a killers head. When a series of murders takes her back to the Hamptons her past is quickly intertwined with the present making the current cases very personal. This is not the full story. It has a cliffhanger so be warned. The rest of the story will be revealed in upcoming books. The storyline is intricate and complex with twists and turns all over the place. There are a lot of characters each with their own agenda. This is a suspense filled thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Definitely a must read. I highly recommend it.

Murder Notes is one of the best romantic suspense books I have ever read. Lisa Renee Jones is a brilliant writer and has just made it onto my one click buy author list.

Rating 4.5 Stars I like Lisa Renee Jones writing. She's good at creating characters and stories that are interesting and intriguing. Murder Notes is the grittiest of her books that I've read. Lilah Love isn't very likable but she is fascinatingly complex. She accomplished a lot already having dropped out of law school, worked for the NYPD and becoming a successful FBI profiler (maybe a little too quickly for real life). She smart, talented and can think like a killer. In part because she is one. Jones drags out explaining this part of Lilah's history excruciatingly slowly - in a good, sitting on the edge of your chair, chewing your nails kind of way. She's almost cruel to Rich, her fellow agent boyfriend. To her credit, she never offered him more but he wants to take their relationship to the next level. Her ex, Kane Mendez, is even more convinced she's the one for him but she's equally closed off from him. She's not a warm welcoming person even to her brother and cousin she loves, or her father with whom she has a strained relationship. In my mind, she did have a close, loving relationship with her mother before she died. Perhaps, her current reticence was born from the loss of her mother. This book offers far more questions than answers. Who is committing the murders? What is their motivation? Are they targeted to get Lilah's attention and to bring her home to NY? Who can be trusted? What's Kane's involvement with his dead father's cartel? Is Lilah's dad dirty? Is Lilah's boss dirty? Are the NY FBI agents on the take? Who's really running the show? and the world as we know it? Throughout I wanted Lilah to quit fighting the truth that Kane is the only one who sees all of her facets and embraces even the darkest side of her but that seems no more likely than her finding love with Rich. The answers to these questions can't be contained in one book and I was dying to know what came next as I came to the final pages. Time to go from this page-turner to the next - Murder Girl.

Murder Notes by Lisa Renee Jones is the first book in the series, Lilah Love. Special Agent Lilah Love is a FBI Profiler and Detective. When she specifically is called to investigate a sting of murders there is more going on than meets the eye. As the murders begin to have a connection to her own life she is pulled back home to a place and people she left behind. Lilah's story is deep and complex and as you read you learn more about her and her past as well as her connection to Kane Mendez, the local crime lord's son. Murder Notes is a suspense, crime-thriller, novel with a side of hot sensual romance. Nothing in Lilah's world is simple and everything more you learns gives more questions than answers as we are led along twists and turns. Overall I liked Murder Notes by Lisa Renee Jones and Lilah's character. She is complex and interesting, passionate and driven. Even when the book ends there is more to learn since Murder Notes is just the beginning of Lilah Love's story.

Coming back home never meant you would not get bit in the azzzzzzzzzzzz. Lilah did not expect for one of her cases to lead her back home. Back home to so much more than just family and old friends. Back home meant that she would be thrust back in her past to things she would rather not rehash. But there is someone that wants very much for her to remember and pay. Lisa Renee Jones knows how to write a Romantic Suspense that would have you desperate to turn to the next page, devour the next chapter and hang on for the next fix. Lilah Love, FBI profiler, fits the need for a strong, smart, independent, woman that can use her mind to infiltrate so of societies most depraved. Okay I found it to be more suspense than romance but that did not take-away from the read in any way. I found Lilah to be just what was needed. I'm anticipating her next case.
Tina-N-Tennessee More than 1 year ago
Wow...a mystery thriller at it's very best !!! Lilah Love is an FBI profiler with a secret and an attitude. She is tasked with solving a series of murders that are hitting too close to home. She also has two men from different sides of the law who want her but she isn't willing to commit to either. This is a really well written crime mystery that has me on the edge of my seat and anxiously waiting for book number two.

Oh so good but can I just start by saying MAJOR CLIFFHANGER!? Another fabulous, yet totally different read from Lisa Renee Jones!! This story follows FBI Profiler, Lilah Love, a tough, cold, foul-mouthed agent who is perfectly capable of taking care of herself and lets everyone know it. Having grown up in the rich Hampton's lifestyle (something she tries desperately to forget), she suddenly finds herself back in the Hampton's on a case and a growing list of questions about those closest to her. This leads her not only back to the family drama she left behind and that of the Hampton's elite, but her ex, Kane and one very large secret shared between them. This book was fast-paced, full of tension and suspense and I just could not put it down! Highly, highly recommended!

I have been unlucky in my choice of books recently, and it continued with MURDER NOTES, which was a DNF at 45%. The reason why I could not read any longer was that I disliked the heroine so much, I could not stand her anymore when I stopped reading; I simply did not care what had happened to her or what would happen with the case(s). I have a pretty good idea of what happened in the past – two years prior to the story, if I understood correctly – when Lilah Love was with the NYPD. If I got the timeline right, she was 26, yet it felt like she was 18. Anyway. I just did not like her attitude right from the start. Being rude, aggressive, unpleasant, dismissive, misanthropic, judgemental, does not equate being strong, independent, hard-working, competent, etc., it just makes for a very disagreeable character, and one I don’t care to cheer for. Not because she’s a woman, I dislike that type of character regardless of the sex; it’s just not attractive. At all. Lilah Love is the type of person I’m ever so grateful not to have to work with, or interact with on any level. As far as I had read, it seems only the Hamptons’ medical examiner, Beth Smith, escaped her hatred, or whatever. Basically, it seems Lilah despises everyone who is not herself, and even then. Kane Mendez? At 45%, he had been part of Lilah’s past, I have no idea if anything else had happened between them, but it certainly will at some point because. Because he’s the hero? Rich, Lilah’s friend-with-benefits-who-wants-more – the poor soul. Of course, she wants nothing more from Rich because Kane – Rich looked like a sweet guy; I liked him and I felt he deserved better than Lilah, so then I wondered if he was the killer, the sender of notes, a bad guy because you know... Let’s put it this way: Lilah Love is no Lisbeth Salander. At some point, I was even thinking that someone was sending Lilah threatening notes because Lilah was just so unpleasant. Also, when Lilah receives threatening notes, she seems to focus on one individual, without much to go on. But, hey, Lilah’s gut feelings … After stopping at 45%, I read the last chapter, and it seemed that not much had been solved. There were so many details, so much ruminating on Lilah’s part on the “incident” from the past – without giving away anything specific – that I wondered if it was for the word count. Hopefully, two cases of misused words will have been corrected in the final version: calculated and collaborated. An event is corroborated, not “collaborated”. A killer is calculating, not “calculated”; a calculating person makes calculated moves. Oh and the slut-shaming! Well, actually it was “people-shaming”, because Lilah is so … Lilah, and no one else measures up to her high (?) standards, or Lilah?. Sigh. Needless to say, this book was not for me. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is a never want to put down can not turn the pages fast enough a little afraid of what might happen next to this awesome charter you are getting to know and love kinda reading experience and I absolutely loved every moment of it. Lilah Love is so much more than a kick ass FBI profiler and survivor of a troubling past. She is also a very intuitive student of human nature and is harboring deep secrets.... Just when I thought I had something figured out the whole seen changes again and I loved every heart pounding, spine tingling twist and turn in this thrilling journey and look forward to more....

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of Murder Notes by Lisa Renee Jones that I read and reviewed. Where do I go with this book? After finishing this book and the way the author left the reader hanging I feel like I wasted hours of my life reading this book. Frankly, it was not all that great to begin with and how the was ended on a major cliff hanger this book was a huge disappointment and not worth my time because I will probably forget to read the second book so I will never know how this story ends because it just did not get me that much. Maybe if it had a better ending and the series could move on with a new case it would have ended better but books with cliff hangers like TV just don't work for me. I read over 100 books a year and I am not going to re-read a book like a would rewatch a TV show. Unfortunately, I can only give Murder Notes two out of five stars.

This the first book in the “Lilah Love” series by author Lisa Renee Jones. I have read several books by this author and have not been disappointed; this book is no different. I felt this was a good mystery story with a lot going on. I found myself in the shower trying to figure things out. As with some of Ms Jones books she leaves us on a cliffhanger, you know the head smacking, yelling “NO!” kind. When I first read the heroines name I was glad I had already swallowed my coffee. The author defiantly gave us something to smile about with that, the other characters didn’t let it go either. Lilah is no wilting flower; her job alone should say that much about her, she is an FBI profiler. Her job has her working at different hours of the day and her latest murder scene has taken her back home to the Hamptons; where secrets and her ex-lover, and family are. So much is going on with this story and her investigation that it keeps you thinking about it, like I said even in the shower. I look forward to seeing how Lilah deals with her past secrets, her ex-lover, her previously ex-lover, her family, and not to mention solving the murders on top of it all. Again, I really enjoyed this book, it was well written with great character development. The murder mystery, the dialog between characters and the heroines monologue was well done. Can’t wait to see the twists the author will be putting in the next book! ***I voluntarily reviewed this ARC from Montlake Romance for an honest review via NetGalley, this is my honest opinion and has not been influenced by the author, Publishers or NetGalley in anyway.*** Thank you!

A new series that revolves around FBI profile Lilah Love, a tough, foul mouthed woman who great at her job. She also has commitment issues and one heck of a secret from her past that could jeopardize her job if ever revealed. When dead bodies start piling up all with the same M.O. Lilah is sent back to the place she never wanted to go again – home. This is where her secret lies and only Kane Mendez – the son of Miguel who ran the cartel and who is now heading after his father's murder – knows what really happened 2 years ago. There is a gigantic cast of characters in this book. Along with the FBI, her father is the mayor, her brother is the Chief of Police, the man she has been sleeping with (but wants to dump) is a cop, her old mentor and supervisor from her days on the police force, the cartel and last but not least – the killer who taunts Lilah with every kill claiming to know her secret. Nothing is resolved by the end of the book. I really wish publishers were made to label when the book is a serial (meaning story told in several installments). Ending in the middle of scene is just annoying BUT I liked Lilah, a alpha female with vulnerabilities and Kane, whoa boy does that man drip with mystery, a side a badass and sex appeal and then the hunt for the assassin/killer who may or may not be connected to one or both of them.

You thought that your secret was safe? Lilah left home for a good reason and she thought that her secret was safe forever only one other person knew about what had happened. She has always trusted Kane but she is scared that he is becoming his father. They are both on different sides she is the FBI and Kane is a man with many talents and most of the time they are barley above board. She is following a case and she knows that it has something to do with the night that she took a life but why now? Who wants to bring her down and can she trust Kane to honest with her? She will use whatever means necessary to find out the truth and she is scared that her father has gotten involved with the other side and she knows that she won't be able to save him. Can she find out the answers before even more bodies are found and can she put the past to bed for good? Will Kane be able to let Lilah go or will he fight to keep her? He might be many things but he still loves her and he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Will Lilah find out the truth or will the lies make everything so much harder? I wonder what part Rich has to play I actually feel sorry for him as he won't ever match up to Kane. I really hope that he gets back home in one piece. Lilah is always trying to be tough but leaving home hurt her and I think that Kane took a part of her and she will never be able to move on from her past until she makes her final choice. Can't wait to see what happens next. A good solid read. I was lucky enough to receive a copy via Netgalley & the publishing house in exchange for my honest review.

For the past year I've been reading romance so when I was giving the opportunity to read something a little suspenseful from Netgalley, I jumped at this. Most people know Lisa Renee Jones for her romance novels but in Murder Notes she gives us something new. At the begin of this story we get a glimpse of who Agent Lilah Love is, she's a profiler for FBI a tough, hardcore agent but with a past and secret she would not like to remember. But with every secret, something or someone has a way to bring it up. Lisa gives us murder, mystery, and suspense through the story with a number of suspects including Kane Mendez, aka Lilah former lover and the key to the past she would forget but needs. At first this story came off slow to me but with every murder mystery you've to build up the suspense. You will want to read Lilahs story. *Received arc in return of my honest review from netgalley and publishers.

Murder Notes is Book One of Lisa Renee Jones' new Lilah Love series. It started off great, waned a bit in the middle and then (of course!) when it picked up great again it ends on a cliffhanger. Aaahhhh!! I am on pins and needles waiting for Book 2. July? Say it isn't so Ms. Jones! This book was filled with twists, turns, suspense, intrigue and just a touch of sexual tension. This book is heavy on the suspense aspect and pretty light on the romance although I am really looking forward to more between Lilah and Kane. Murder Notes set up the series pretty well but now we wait for answers, hopefully, in Book 2. ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley.

Lilah Love is an amazing FBI Agent. I love the twist that the murders she is currently investigating send her back to her home town. She has to deal with the murders, a stalker, an ex-lover, an ex-best friend, and relatives that all have secrets. That is a lot for any person to deal with and somehow she manages juggle it all while still doing her job. I like that she didn’t let her life get distracted. With each twist and turn she became more focused on the job she has to do. There were a few times while reading that I was confused on what was happening. I felt like there was a lot going on, like too much, and the story lines didn’t always seem to meld together. A couple times I had to read part of the chapter again to figure out who she was talking to, about, or around. I quickly caught up and found myself devouring each page, needing to know who was killing these people, who was stalking Lilah, and what was going to happen with her family. Murder Notes is the first book in the Lilah Love series and ends in a cliffhanger. There is no finished ending which means I am now excited for book two to come out.

I received a copy of ""Murder Notes"" from the publisher for a fair and honest review. Murder Notes by Lisa Renee Jones is a unique, exciting and new type of writing for Ms. Jones. I felt the 1st novel in this series is written incredibly well, reads like a dream and allows imagination to burst forth. Lilah Love is an FBI Profiler, with a checkered and frightening past and a former Detective with NYPD. She is assigned to two murder cases in California and ends up back home in The Hamptons, New York investigating two additional cases. Pulled from today's newspapers and television headlines. Does she have secrets? You bet she does, from which nightmares are created! I love this book. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. 5 stars. Linda-Rose

As a HUGE Lisa Renee Jones fan I am excited she is bringing us a new Suspense series. Murder Notes was not what I was expecting it to be! I FLOVE the book and let me tell you friends, it has a smidge of romance, but the suspense and mystery of the story will have you glued to the book. I love trying to figure out who is involved with the good and the bad. I am all over the place with the who and what. Let's talk about the characters. I was on the fence when it comes to Kane. I am not sure if he is the best for Lilah or the worst for her. He is definitely a mystery that I can not figure out yet! Lilah is the best character to play as this story's heroine. She has demons that haunt her. But she trudges on and is doing the best that she can. The story plot is amazing! I could not get enough of this book!!! I have a new addiction with this series. I can not wait for Murder Girl! The ending was perfect! I still have no clue who is behind the murders. I was left with my jaw dropped to the floor. Lisa has outdone herself as always. Murder Notes is my top ten best in Suspense!!

Holy cow! I could not put this book down. I just had to keep reading to find out answers. Imagine my surprise when I realized this book ends on a cliffhanger. Ugh....I want, no, I NEED to know the answers to this mystery and it is killing me having to wait. Lilah Love works as an FBI profiler. She understands how killer's think and is really good at her job. Lilah is now living in California after running away from her past in the Hamptons, NY. Imagine her surprise when her latest case is dragging her back into the past she has been trying to run from. Back in the Hamptons, Lilah finds herself immersed into another murder and having to deal with her father, the mayor, her brother, the police chief, and her ex, now the head of the local crime family after his father was murdered. As Lilah is investigating things in New York, someone else is leaving her notes taunting her. Just when you think you have something figured out, the story takes a hard left turn. Overall I love this story and I really love Lilah. She is a total bad a$$ type of girl with such a foul mouth, but she really knows her job. I love this ride Lilah is taking me on and I can't wait to see how it ends.

This is a very cool new romantic suspense series emphasis on the suspense. Lilah Love is a badass FBI profiler and just such a great character. I love her! The way her mind works through a profile/case is something else and it makes you, as the reader,really think. I love that about this book and it made me be very invested in what was going on. The constant suspenseful vibe throughout the book made it really hard to even put down. Romance is definitely not the driving force of this book but it is there. So many great characters are introduced and I love that is is difficult to tell who is on what side of the law. Suffice it to say, I’m a huge fan! I’m looking forward to the next book in the series though since I am not the biggest fan of cliffhangers but in this case, some are totally worth the read.
