All Fall Down by Erica Spindler

“The system falls down. They all fall down!”

Through an abusive childhood, triplets Melanie, Mia, and Ashley stood by each other and tried their best to get through it all. Now, as adults, Mia’s married to a physically abusive doctor; Ashley has an abundance of bitterness towards men; and Melanie is a small-town divorced cop fighting for custody of her son, Casey.

It is when men start to unexpectedly die in their town that Melanie begins to think that these “accidental deaths” are actually murder. Every waking moment she has, her attention is on this case to prove she is right.

When Melanie meets Connor Parks, an FBI profiler with ‘obsessions’ of his own, they try to put the pieces together to find out the person behind it all. He comes up with a profile of the killer and Melanie realizes that it sounds all too familiar… sounds like someone she knows personally.

As she gets closer to discovering the killer, she and Connor fall in love. But a happy ending isn’t what the killer has in store for them. Melanie is set up to take the fall for the murders that took place, and it puts everyone she knows in danger.

This book is awesome. When reading, the question that’s lingering in the back of your mind is: is it justice or is it murder? It’s suspenseful and, of course, there’s a twist at the end! Murder scenes are great, but when you involve a bit of kinky sex, whoa, it gets better. I really like how the characters develop throughout the story; you get a sense of their personality, their flaws, likes and dislikes.

Yay for a great book.
