Review/Blitz post of Blue Baby by Carolyn Arnold



Author: Carolyn Arnold

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

Where light meets darkness…

Happiness is elusive for many, but from the killer’s standpoint, it’s something he

creates. And he’s determined to get it right…at least one more time.

The murders were one year apart, but the similarities have the interest of the FBI. Both

victims were found in their tubs, dressed in their wedding gowns. But that’s not the

worst of it. When a third body is found, Brandon Fisher and his team make the chilling

discovery that more than the killer’s method of operation connects the women.


4 stars

This book was a good read. If you like the show Criminal Minds or shows like that you will like this book. The Story takes you through the investigation. Keeps you wondering as to who the killer may be. It keeps you in suspense which can be very exciting. It gives you some incite on the investigation and the characters personalities. I enjoyed reading this and look forward to reading more from this author.

THE WHITE SILK WAS DRAPED over the porcelain of the tub like angel wings. She was beautiful,

radiant. Her face was flushed, and her eyes were open and staring at him.

He took the set of fake lashes from his pocket and applied them. He coated her eyeball with

glue before delicately using both hands to pull her eyes closed. The extensions fanned against her


He applied the eye shadow and stepped back to appreciate the hues of brown and gold.

Next. Lipstick.

He smeared the tube across her lips. The bright red was an exquisite touch of color against

her fair skin. He put the veil in place and wisped back the nylon until it framed her face and

ensconced her shoulders. He stood back to admire his work thus far.


The blonde sat with her back against the end of the tub, her dress spilling down her frame

and over the ledge. Her hair was a bed of curls beneath her veil. Her makeup appeared

professional, and he was pleased with his hard work. He wasn’t nearly as perfect with the first


Her mouth carried a hint of peace. Of happiness.

The Big Event was under way.


His gaze went to her left hand resting in her lap.

How could he have been so foolish? Was he rushing things? He moved swiftly through her

apartment and found what he sought on her dresser.

“There you go, beautiful.” He slipped the wedding ring on her finger, leaving him with one

final task.

He took the cigar cutter from his pocket, slipped her ring finger into it, and squeezed. As he

had the first time, he marveled at the ease of it, how such small blades were able to cut through

bone. He let the severed finger fall against her ivory dress.

Stepping back, he took in her beauty.

She was pleased. It was in the way her lips were set.

He smiled. “Now, you can just be happy.”
