Twenty-five-year-old identical triplets Sissy, Moody, and Iris have had a hard life. But boy, oh boy, that's no excuse for their murderous behavior. They were abandoned at birth and separated in foster care. Once they were reunited, they decided that they would travel across the country making men fall in love with them, enjoy some passion and then kill them. And now it was Sissy's turn to do the deed. They arrive at a small town in Arizona and Sissy sets her sights on Edison, a 29-year-old widower. Vulnerable and sweet, he quickly becomes smitten with Jade (Sissy's fake name), but the feeling is mutual. Now comes the dilemma - is she going to kill Edison per the plan and stay loyal to her sisters or will she follow her heart?
After writing YA novels, How I'll Kill You is author Ren DeStefano's adult debut. What a crazy thriller of a book! If you're a fan of Joe Goldberg and the You book/television series or Dexter, you'll surely appreciate the devilishness of these psychopathic sisters with a very unique way of breaking up with boyfriends and lovers. If not, this book might not be for you.
Many thanks to Berkley Publishing for providing me with an advance copy of this compelling story about Sissy, a serial-killer-in-training who is falling in love for the first time. I couldn't stop hearing the Talking Heads song Psycho Killer in my head. "Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?"
Rated 4 out of 5 stars.
