When New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards brought her irresistible brand of hot passion and chilling suspense to the paranormal romance scene with The Last Victim, it was just the beginning. Now her all-new series cranks up the deadly danger and intense desire to the next level, as sexy serial killer hunter Charlotte Stone returns to action in her thrilling second adventure. THE LAST KISS GOODBYE Dr. Charlotte “Charlie” Stone has dedicated her career as a psychiatrist to exploring the darkest territory of all: the hearts and minds of serial killers. It’s a job she’s uniquely suited for, thanks to the secret talent that gives her an uncanny edge—Charlie can see dead people, whose tormented spirits cry out to her for the justice only she can provide. This blessing—or curse—gives Charlie the power to hunt down and catch madmen and murderers. It’s also turned her love life upside down by drawing her into a hopelessly passionate relationship with the lingering ghost of charismatic bad boy Michael Garland. But there’s little time for romance with her supernatural suitor when murder comes pounding at Charlie’s door in the form of a terrified young woman fleeing a homicidal maniac. Saving her life places Charlie squarely in the cross-hairs of a sadistic predator nicknamed “the Gingerbread Man,” notorious for manipulating his victims like pawns in a deadly chess game. And now the queen this psychopath’s bent on capturing is Charlie. Refusal to play will only put more innocent lives in danger. Matching wits with this cunningly twisted opponent will require all of Charlie’s training and expert skills. But even with her devilish “guardian angel”—not to mention her favorite flesh-and-blood Fed, Tony Bartoli—watching her beautiful back, the Gingerbread Man’s horrifying grin might be the last thing Charlie ever sees.

Leave it to Robards to deliver the start of a series that is distinctive and unforgettable!”—RT Book Reviews “Excellent . . . This story is going to haunt you.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “Thrilling . . . a fun and sexy read.”—Booklist

4.5 GRIPPING STARS!I actually enjoyed this more than the first one, "[b:The Last Victim|13114564|The Last Victim|Karen Robards|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388283260s/13114564.jpg|18288467]". I was more caught up on the profiling, and exploring into the mind of a serial killer. Plus, Charlie has m...
Let me start by saying that I loved the first book, The Last Victim. I was eager to read the sequel and had high hopes. I'm sad to say that the book didn't live up to my expectations. I liked it, I just didn't love it. If the book was a straight mystery/thriller, I would give the book high scores...
Sometimes I self harm. Mostly with books. I really hated everything about the first Dr. Charlotte Stone book. I wasn’t planning on reading another but Suleikha Snyder wouldn’t stop talking about ghost sex. (Wait, is it still self harming if I can blame someone else?) The Last Kiss Goodbye is so mu...
One of the big mysteries of this series is going to be is Micheal Garland guilty or not. It's going to get old after a while, especially since most readers have made up their minds one way or another during the first book. I still don't like Tony that much, not that I hate him but still. The main my...
The serial killer aspect of the story was good and the connection of the main character to the paranormal gave it an interesting twist. Even the possibility of a hard to maintain relationship between Michael and Charlie was both viable and entertaining.However what really made the story less powerfu...
