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.

My Review: I have never read a creepier story until now! Blue Baby took me to the dark, menacing, and terrifying place. This story was everything a mystery/thriller should be and more. After finding two bodies dressed on wedding gowns in their bathtub things started to get my heart rate picking up slightly and I had the need to want to look over my shoulder wondering what or who maybe lurking. As Brandon Fisher steps into the story you could feel his authority and his need to find this killer. The team take on the task of connecting these murders if there was one as doing so body number three is discovered. At this point I was so into this book that I had to know who this killer was and take him or her down as much as Agent Fisher did. Blue Baby was one hellish, fast paced, creep show that demanded my attention leaving me no choice but continue reading until I had discovered who was lurking in the darkness and taking the lives of innocent victims who quickly became prey. I loved every minute of it!
I have never read anything by Carolyn Arnold before and I had not realized that this was not the first in the Brandon Fisher series. I can honestly tell you that this book was so well written that that I was able to pick up this book and not get lost as to where the origin of this story began and enjoy reading to where it may end. I would very much so enjoy reading more by Ms. Arnold. 


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 flesh.
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 one.
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.”
