Book Review - Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff

Book Review


Hannah's best friend Lillian died six months ago but she didn't leave. Lillian has been haunting Hannah and has now tasked her with an important job. To catch a killer.

Someone is killing girls and the victims want justice. Drawn into a world of ghost girls and horrifying secrets, Hannah slowly pieces the clues together, starting with the child like paper valentines the killer leaves behind.

I enjoyed Paper Valentines, but was also left a little unsatisfied. The story was good but I had a lot of questions at the end that I wanted answered.
Why is Lillian's ghost haunting Hannah?
Why can only Hannah see the ghosts?
Why is he killing the girls?
And so many more.

Although I was left a little disappointed, I did enjoy the story. I found the idea very interesting and liked how Yovanoff included a bit of everything into the book; murder, love, horror, friendship, family. But I do feel that the ending was rushed a bit and didn't answer the big question, why was he killing? Just because he could, didn't really satisfy me.

This was the first book I have read that's by Yovanoff and I enjoyed her writing style. I will be looking at some of her other work.
