The Hunted Girls by Jenna Kernan | Blog Tour

Another book revolving around a serial killer?! Yes pleaseeee

I really loved A Killer’s Daughter (Book 1) in this series and was looking forward to this book and it did not disappoint! I admit it was a bit slow-paced at first but once I hit the halfway mark it was action-packed!

I really love the dynamic between the main characters and love that Nadine now has her own “team” to help her solve crimes! I just hope we get to see more of them in the next novels!

I did feel like I was missing a bit of character development between Nadine and Detective Dempko in the beginning of the story, but I was satisfied by the end of the book.

The book takes place in Florida, and Jenna did an excellent job at making you feel like you were there with the characters, she definitely brought that atmospheric element.

Even though the beginning was a bit slower (I felt the same when reading Book 1), it’s 100% worth it! I’m looking forward to reading Book 3 and following more of Nadine’s adventures. Highly recommend!

Thank you to Bookouture for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


Stumbling through the pitch-black forest, twigs scratching her bare feet, she sobs as she imagines her children crying for their mommy to put them to bed. By now everyone will know she is missing. Please, please let me find the way home. Before he comes back.

As Agent Nadine Finch rushes to investigate the murder of newlywed Nikki Darnell in Ocala National Forest, Florida, fear floods her body. She swore she’d never set foot here again, not since the case fifteen years ago which tore her life apart. But taking in the triangular cuts scarring Nikki’s perfect pale skin, she knows she must put her own traumatic past aside to find justice for Nikki’s inconsolable husband.

Discovering water in Nikki’s lungs, and certain the triangular wounds were made by arrowheads, Nadine must convince her team of her terrifying theory: that Nikki was hunted down and drowned before being left for them to find. But what monster would do such a thing? And why? Then another woman, a mother of two, is discovered in the woods, tell-tale arrow marks all over her body.

Recognizing the victim as a local waitress, Nadine fears the killer has started attacking women known to her. And the moment she traces the arrow heads to a nearby outdoors store, her own partner disappears.

Frantic, Nadine follows the trail to a lonely cabin deep in the Florida wetlands where she finally learns the heart-stopping truth. To save one of her own, she must confront a deadly hunter obsessed with the case that’s haunted her whole career. Will Nadine have to make the ultimate sacrifice to stop him taking more innocent lives?

Jaw-dropping, packed with twists and turns, and impossible to put down until you reach the final page. Fans of Robert Dugoni, Lisa Gardner and Rachel Caine will be totally addicted to The Hunted Girls.
