Once upon a time, the Grimms' fairy tales taught lessons. Now, the Grimm Reaper does.
New detective Chelsea Sullivan is partnered with a maverick famous for closing cases and infamous for how he does it. He has a target on his back and a chip on his shoulder. Not exactly how she hoped to kick off her first homicide case.
Jim McPherson doesn't mind showing an up-and-comer the ropes, but he does mind when she keeps putting herself in harm's way. Especially since her innocence is exactly the trait the serial killer seems to be targeting. Unless they're missing a crucial detail. And he can't help but think his new partner knows what it is.
The body count is rising and the Grimm Reaper is after Chelsea. If they can't catch him before he catches her, there will be no happily ever after.

Almost 5 stars. Enjoyed the story but will say that the first half of the book was somewhat spoiled by the repetitive bickering between the new partners. Not fun or funny, just annoying and exhausting to read.
Good book. Well written. Some surprises but figured out who was the culprit by chapter 20 ish. Even so I enjoyed the book
