Book Review - Killer Queen by L.H. Cosway

Killer Queen (A Painted Faces Novel) 
by L.H. Cosway
Published 2014
188 Pages

Killer Queen is a companion novel to Painted Faces, but can be read as a standalone. It retraces Nicholas and Freda's steps through Dublin in the form of Nicholas's diary, which gives the story a whole new perspective. And while many of the events from the first book are revisited, there are new, meaningful reveals that offer important insight into our main characters' lives.

Nicholas is thrilled to meet his new neighbor, Freda, and enjoys her company more than anticipated. As she takes on a role working with Nicholas at the Glamour Patch club -- a cabaret club where Nicholas transforms into the singing sensation known as Vivica Blue -- their friendship blossoms. But after a strange and unsettling turn of events in Scotland, their relationship is put to the test. Will Freda prove to be Nicholas's undoing, or will she bring him the joy he always wanted but never thought possible?

Moving beyond the original tale, our lovely main characters delve into exciting new territory. And while there are some painful moments, this is a unique love story full of hope, promise, and intrigue. Such an amazing and original tale, I was hooked from start to finish!

This book can be read on it's own. However, I highly recommend staring with the first book to get Nicholas and Freda's full story.
