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.

The book was good. A bit slow. A bit annoying at the detectives not getting along for imagined insults. I guessed early on who the killer was.
Once upon a Crime
Too much emphasis on the friction between detectives, when the underlying story line was good enough to carry the novel. Still enjoyed it though.
The premise of the book was ok & it could have been a really good book but…I’m so tired of the damsel in distress narrative!!! Women don’t become cops/detectives by being all weak & needy. We don’t always need some big strong man to protect us…that got really old, really quickly in this story! Without that being the major story line this would have been an enjoyable read, & it turned me off to the point I won’t be reading the next one.
