I have been hooked on Lena Diaz’s Nursery Rhymes series ever since the first book He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not. I love these books and Ashes, Ashes, They All Fall Dead did not fail to achieve to hit that status. I was captivated and hooked by the end of the first chapter. Ashes, Ashes, They All Fall Dead is the third book in the series. It is easy to fall in love with Tessa and Matt as they fall in love with each other, all while they chase clues left by a serial killer. Tessa is an amnesiac FBI agent who must remember her past before another person dies; a budding personal and work relationship develops with Matt who proves that he is more than just another pretty face. Diaz writes a very addictive thriller that leaves readers wanting more.
This book has everything a reader could want in a romantic suspense and more. Diaz once more proves that she can write a fast paced romantic thriller that ranks right up there with the greats like Sandra Brown, Linda Howard and Allison Brennan. Ashes, Ashes, They All Fall Dead can be read on its own, but I’d highly recommend reading all three (He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not, Simon Says Dead and Ashes, Ashes, They All Fall Dead) as they do build upon the previous books in the series.
