Release Date-May 19th 2017
Genre-Dark Romance
Kindle Edition-95 pages

“My name is Charlotte O’Callaghan and I am a serial killer.”
“My name is Detective Matthew Craig and I am hunting a serial killer no one else believes exists.”

They call her the poor cursed princess. He is one of the police force’s finest.
When upper-class daughter Charlotte O’Callaghan loses her parents to a hit and run at the age of 15, she feels as if she died along with them until one accident on the evening to her 16th birthday and a freak coincidence on the night of her parents’ death anniversary changes everything.
Matthew Craig has connected seventeen deaths to each other by nothing more than the date and time of death. No one believes that these violent deaths have been executed by one person, because other than the date and time of death and them being unsolved homicides, there are no similarities. That and the hit-and-run he feels where everything started.
It is his investigation into that hit-and-run that has Charlotte and Matthew crossing paths and that changes everything.

This book is not suitable for minors and the faint-hearted, due to violence, murder, and explicit content!

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a good read, it didn’t blow me away, but it was enjoyable.
Maybe it was because book one only just gets started, slightly delving into the story before cutting off abruptly, I felt I didn’t quite have time to get to know our two main charectors and this left me a bit disconnected from the story.
So what’s Blood Curse about you may ask?
Well, the concept here in D.S. Wrights tale is fascinating. A female serial Killer, I absolutely love this unique idea. It always intrigues me when the female has sociopathic tendencies.
So this is Charlotte, after her parent’s death she feels nothing and finds that if she kills those pesky emotions get turned back on.
So twice a year Charlotte chooses a victim. Like a female Dexter, she only goes for those she feels deserve her type of vigilante justice.
She then returns to her life as a rich gallery owner.
Enter Mathew a police officer convinced there’s a serial killer on the loose, nobody really takes him seriously and he is banging his head figuratively against a brick wall.
He arranges a meeting with the O’Callaghan Princess never for one minute imagining her to be involved.
The sparks fly and after a bonding dinner, well Mathew and Charlotte bond some more breaking a mirror in the process.
This is where our tale ends, it’s much too short in my opinion to draw the reader in and get them addicted and wanting to purchase book two.
I also found the love scenes a bit wordy, but that’s just my personal preference as I like my scenes with more of a raw edge to them.
Now positives, Brilliant unique concept, I really am interested in seeing where this is going, I found this was also well written with a flowing storyline, the cover itself was also quite eye-catching.
so all in all this was not quite a four for me, but I really felt three was just a trifle too low so I have rated this as a three and a half and I look forward to seeing where this series will go.
Thank you to the Author D.S. Wrights for generously providing me with a free arc of Blood Curse.
This is my own Personal Opinion of this novel.
