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.
