Catherine McCoy is on the run. For the past year, she’s been on the move, hiding the secrets and guilt in her heart. When she lands in small-town Texas and meets Sheriff Matt Ballard, he ignites a flame she thought lost forever.

Matt has scars of his own. He left the big city after an undercover operation went bad and his partner was killed. Now, as Matt hunts for a serial killer who paints his victims’ faces like porcelain dolls, Catherine becomes a safe haven for him. Two tortured souls finding comfort in each other's arms—until he uncovers her secret, and their bond of trust is broken.

When Catherine disappears, Matt races to find her, fearing the murderer has found his next green-eyed doll. But the killer has a surprise coming. Catherine will fight to the death before she’ll be a victim again. But will her determination be enough?


Krystal's Satin Sheets Romance Review...

This book was outstanding! Ms. Alexander grabs your attention from the very beginning and doesn't let go. I probably would have read it in one day, but it's long, so it took me two. Even then I practically fell asleep with my Kindle in my hands at like 2am because I couldn't put it down.

The characters jump off the page and take residence in your heart. Catherine is a battered woman who's trying to take back her life. Matt is scared of commitment, but really wants to find someone to share his life with. (even if he doesn't realize it) I loved the old mutt he takes in and cares for that won't let him touch him until his heart has opened for Catherine. Only then, when he's learned to truly care for her will the dog let him pet him. Mind you, the dog runs to Catherine the first time she sees him. Catherine thinks she has these walls built up around her heart, but she doesn't. She's such a kind soul and deeply cares for the people she meets, even though she thinks she's just passing through the town. Ms. Alexander does a fantastic job of weaving her story and setting together. Everything flowed so well and felt very natural. Even the secondary characters were filled out and complete with interesting personalities.

I'm not going to tell you anything about the mystery. Where would be the fun in that? I will tell you that I tried and tried to figure out who it was and couldn't! 

The Green-Eyed Doll is chilling suspense and will keep you on the edge of your seat. The romance is hot and the hero is just gorgeous! I swooned over him a few times. I think Ms. Alexander is keeper for sure and she's made it to my auto-buy list (which is very short).

  3. Jerrie,

    What a great way to start off your day! A twisted serial killer, girl with secrets, hunky hero, both in danger of losing their hearts and their love and a dog-sounds like my kind of book. I would love to win a free copy!
