Review & Giveaway: Curiosity Killed the Kat by Elizabeth Nelson

Author:  Elizabeth Nelson
Date of Publication: June 2012
Publisher: Bristlecone Books

Katherine ("Kat") thought she had the perfect marriage to International Lawyer Steven Flynn. Until he tried to kill her.

Katherine was the perfect obedient wife. She would do anything for her husband. That is, until she discovers he's the ring leader of a human trafficking organization. The action is fast and furious, the dialogue smart and the sex scenes hot. Meet Katherine in Curiosity Killed The Kat as she goes farther and farther down the rabbit hole of political intrigue, sex, and revenge. Will she let herself be saved by love or will curiosity and a thirst for killer justice kill the Kat?

I have really mixed feeling about this book. When I read the description about the book, I was excited to read it.  It sounded really interesting.  Imagine finding out the man you were married to for so long wasn't who you thought he was.  How would you handle that?  Kat finds out some secrets about her husband and is shocked to learn what kind of business he is running on the side.

The story had great potential   The problem I had with it was the length.  It was really short.  A little research shows that the book is the first in a trilogy and ends with a big cliff hanger.   If the other books are equally as short, I wonder why the three books weren't rolled into one.  Had they been, I think I would have enjoyed the story more and I would have believed Kat's transition out of role of abused wife a bit more.  Because the book was so short, there wasn't time for a lot of story development.  Essentially, it felt all a bit rushed.

It has gotten great reviews, so give it a try and see what you think.  Want to win a copy?  Just fill out the rafflecopter below to enter.
