Three newborn identical triplets are found abandoned in a roadside rest stop. The girls are split up by the government and grow up in multiple foster and group homes with only occasional visits with each other. Moody, Iris and Sissy reunite at eighteen. When one’s relationship goes horribly awry, the triplets vow to kill all their future lovers to keep their small family together. Taking turns at killing men stupid enough to love them, they change identities and locations every few months—until it’s Sissy’s turn. Sissy falls hard for Edison. She isn’t sure she has the strength to murder him. But she has made a commitment to her sisters. The question she must ask herself about Edison is How I’ll Kill You—not if.
How I’ll Kill You is a unique genre mashup of a syrupy romance and a serial killer thriller. While I cringed at some of the more maudlin moments, I couldn’t stop reading the serial killers’ story. There were several surprising twists to keep my interest high. How can Sissy manage to fulfill both her sisters’ expectations and her own desires? 4.5 stars!
Thanks to Berkley and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
