Kismet: A Thriller

We rated this book:


I was really excited to receive a copy of Kismet for review. The story sounded so intriguing and is about two women who moved from New York to Sedona only to be caught in a serial killer’s web. Ronnie is Pakistani and has lived with her abusive Aunt since she was six years old after her parents died in a car accident. She meets Marley, the daughter of a wealthy woman who also claims to be a healer and life coach. After taking some empowerment lessons with Marley, Ronnie decides to move to Sedona, Arizona, with Marley for more healing, yoga, and the desert air.

I did not like Marley from the very beginning because she seemed very fake and selfish. In one part of the book, she has a woman come to their house to take Ronnie’s blood for a vampire facial for her and her friend Caroline without asking permission from Ronnie. The book has chapters that are told from the point of view of the serial killer who seems to be killing “bad” people only, and we know it is a woman.

The ending is not surprising, and the book seemed to drone on forever. It started off really interesting, but the characters started to become more unlikeable and strange as the book went on.
