The First One to Die by Victoria Jenkins is even better than her first King & Lane book, The Girls in the Water.
First things first, how AMAZING is the cover? I wanted to read The Girls in the Water, but my TBR was so big that I was afraid I couldn’t squeeze it in. I’d seen fantastic reviews for it, but I didn’t want to overextend myself on how many reviews I owed already.
But how in the world did Victoria Jenkins know how much I loved roses? When the cover reveal was shown for The First One to Die, I HAD to read it. So I dropped what I was doing and read The Girls in the Water. I wanted to be ready for when The First One to Die was available. A testament to how cover design is a potent marketing tool.
