Review: "Cry Wolf" by Tami Hoag

From Goodreads:  In the rural parishes of Louisiana young women are disappearing one by one, only to turn up on the banks of the bayou, strangled and cast aside where they are sure to be found. All attorney Laurel Chandler wanted was a place to hide from the memories of a case that had nearly destroyed her life. But coming back to the peaceful streets of her hometown doesn't give Laurel the serenity she craves. For in the sultry heat of a Louisiana summer, a ruthless predator strikes. And Laurel is lured into a game from which there may be no escape...
My Thoughts:  This book has an intriguing premise and the synopsis on the back of the book convinced me to read it.  Unfortunately, it was not anywhere near as good as it sounds.  I did not really like the character of Laurel Chandler though I did feel bad for her and the story seemed to center more around her issues than the murders that were being committed around her.  The romance aspect of the novel was boring:  it was the same old, girl meets boy, fights with boy constantly but is really in love with him.  It was pretty lame.  I also found it annoying that it was so obvious who the murderer was.  I usually never figure out who the killer is and I had it all figured out before the book was half over.  This book could have been a good thriller but it turned out to be very predictable romance novel with a side of murder.  2 1/2 stars.
