Age Group: Adult
Genre: Mystery/Thriller
Release Date: August 12, 2015

San Diego homicide detective Holly Jennings is back in The Preference and she is hunting the most sadistic killer she’s faced yet.

Do You Prefer Red or White?  It’s a simple question… When couples from Las Vegas to Colorado Springs receive an e-mail with an offer to win a free trip to Napa Valley by simply stating their preference of either red or white wine, little do they know the killing spree their “preference” sets in motion.   He calls himself The Connoisseur…   He stalks and murders young, beautiful red headed or blonde women depending on “his clients” preference. The Connoisseur is methodical, sadistic and with a need to seek what he considers justice for himself.   Homicide detective Holly Jennings wants nothing more than to nail The Connoisseur. However, when his next victim doesn’t fit his Modus Operandi, Holly has to consider the possibility of two killers, a copycat, or a hunter who may actually know how to outwit her. Ella Jennis is a brunette and from a wealthy winery family out of Temecula, Ca. When disturbing photos of Ella in captivity surface on the internet, Holly is certain that time is running out to save the latest preference.

review 1

This book can be read as a standalone.  But I would recommend reading the first two Holly Jennings books first.


A.K. Alexander keeps you invested in her characters.  You become intrigued by the characters and their stories.  What is going to happen?  How are they involved? What will the killer do next? The research and the way the books are written make you feel like you are in the story right alongside the detectives. The attention to detail and clues to solve this case will leave you on the edge of your seat.  There is some romance in these books but I feel that it was right amount.  Not too much that you feel like you are reading a romance novel but just enough that you not only love the plot you get to know the interworking’s of the characters. If you are a suspense thriller fan- I will go to say not only is this book for you but this author is for you-there are plenty of twists and turns and what is really going on to keep you invested.
