    Homicide Detective William Vaughn is investigating a series of murders ... all young women, and all resemble the victim found earlier.

    So maybe this is not a cold case .... maybe someone is continuing the cycle.

    Is it more than a coincidence that the first victim's sister and her daughter both disappear?

    Spencer and Vaughn must work together to find the killer, delving through decades of lies and secrets.

    Well-written by one of my favorite authors, the suspense is palpable and the characters are finely drawn. Spencer and Vaughn are on again - off again lovers and they pick up where the left off when they last worked together. There is spice and sizzle, but I really enjoyed how they share their professional, as well as personal lives.

    Many thanks to the author / Montlake Romance / Netgalley for the digital copy of this addition to the author's Criminal Profiler series. Read and reviewed voluntarily, the opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

    I SEE YOU (Criminal Profiler Book 2) by Mary Burton is the second romantic suspense in the Criminal Profiler series. This book focuses on two suspense plots, a cold case and a present day serial killer case while still managing to give you a believable romance intertwined with the investigations.

    FBI Special Agent Zoe Spencer is a profiler and a forensic artist who can use skeletal remains or eye- witness testimony to build or draw a visual representation for law enforcement. As she works on the reconstruction of a recently found skull, she brings back the face of a missing teenage girl from 19 years ago.

    Alexandria homicide detective William Vaughan has been called to the scene of a brutally murdered teenage sex worker. Just as he begins investigating, he gets a call to assist on Zoe’s cold case. He is interested in the case and is happy to once again work with his on-again, off-again lover.

    As William and Zoe reconnect with the sister of the cold case victim, they are shocked to get a call that the sister’s husband has been stabbed and the sister and her daughter have been abducted. There are deep secrets in this family and as the investigation heats up, more bodies are being found. Can William and Zoe find out who and what connects the past with the present and if they are connected stop the killing spree?

    I love all the layers in these suspense plots from the past and present and how they were tied together. Ms. Burton kept me guessing and changing my mind on who was guilty with an ending that satisfies, but also leaves a scary question mark for the future. William is a steady, strong hero who does not overshadow Zoe, who is a very strong heroine on her own. The romance was believable because they were both at a point in their lives where they were both ready to move on. The sex scenes are steamy and intimate, but not gratuitous.

    I highly recommend this romantic suspense and author. Ms. Burton always gives me intriguing cases to solve, strong and intelligent heroes and heroines and a romantic HEA.

    Thanks very much to Montlake Romance and Net Galley for allowing me to read an eARC of this book.

    was an incredible read with an exciting plot that focuses on the suspense which is something this author does well.

    FBI special agent Zoe Spencer helps give skeletal remains their identities back by recreating their faces through sculpture. After working on the skeletal remains of a murder victim, Zoe discovers the young woman was the subject of a high profile missing persons case nearly twenty years ago. When the case leads Zoe to Alexandria, Zoe partners with homicide detective William Vaughan, her on-again, off-again lover. But as the two work the case, they discover someone is out there still hunting women and time is running out to catch the killer before they strike again.

    The case surrounding the murder victim was incredibly interesting and doesn’t even scratch the surface of what Zoe and Vaughn work on in this book. While the identity of the skeletal remains provides a good jumping off point, Zoe and Vaughn are quickly drawn down another path. Between a kidnapping, a potential serial killer, and more suspects than they can keep up with, this book is fast paced and packed with suspense. There were a few surprises along the way that only enhanced the story and I enjoyed the direction the author took things. The ending was a bit unexpected, but I thought it was a good choice that perfectly fit the story.

    Zoe and Vaughn work really well together and I think their romantic relationship only enhances that. They both trust each other to do their job and have no doubts about the other’s skills. I liked that while the pair would go off and do their own thing, the majority of the case was them working together. As to their personal relationship, initially you’re given the impression that Vaughn is more involved than Zoe, but it quickly becomes clear that’s not the case. Zoe is more private about her feelings than Vaughn is and I was happy to see her open up more as the book went on.

    was a fantastic continuation of the

    series and I highly recommend this author if you’re looking for some great romantic suspense.

    Mary Burton never fails to have me on the edge of my seat as I read her stories and try to solve all of the mysteries. But this book felt so much more suspenseful than usual, and I loved it. I was left constantly guessing about what was going on and what had happened in the past, and even near the end I was on edge just waiting to see if my suspicions were correct.

    Zoe and Vaughn were great lead characters and really helped move this story along. I liked getting to

    Zoe and Vaughn were great lead characters and really helped move this story along. I liked getting to see how they developed and came together as the book progressed and it was just another thing for me to look forward to as I read. They made a great team and an amazing couple.

    Overall, I definitely recommend this book and pretty much anything this author writes. This book can be read as a standalone if you want to jump right into this series with this story.

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.

    Really good mystery and a good romance. Mary Burton does tend to keep her distance, and yours, from her characters though. I really had no like for the primary victim, Hadley Prince Foster. She was a manipulative perfectionist and her demise was no surprise. The who and the why, those were the elements this plot hinged on and kept you guessing right to the end.

    Really good mystery and a good romance. Mary Burton does tend to keep her distance, and yours, from her characters though. I really had no like for the primary victim, Hadley Prince Foster. She was a manipulative perfectionist and her demise was no surprise. The who and the why, those were the elements this plot hinged on and kept you guessing right to the end.

    FBI special agent Zoe Spencer is a very controlled person, both as a professional and in her personal life. Her involvement starts with using her artistic talents to do a facial reconstruction on an old, burned skull. The location of the remains was tipped to a down on her luck TV reporter, Nikki McDonald. The remains turn out to be those of a teenage girl who has been missing for 18 years.

    Alexandrea, VA police detective William Vaughan remembers when Marsha Prince disappeared. He was new on the force, but this case was a tough one. Now, he has a cold case to go along with a new homicide and not enough evidence on either one. But at least the cold case puts him back in contact with sometime lover, Zoe Spencer, and the sparks are as hot as ever.

    Together they notify Marsha's family and that seems to set off a chain of events that no one could have ever foreseen. A killer with a motive and a taste for blood must be stopped.

    When this book jumped right to the action with a down on her luck news reporter getting an anonymous tip and finding a twenty year old skeleton in a storage unit, I knew I was in for a captivating ride.

    Zoe Spencer helps bring justice to victims by using her gift of sculpture and the victim’s skeletal remains to identify them. When her latest project turns out to be the remains of a young woman whose kidnapping almost twenty years earlier was widely publicized, a cold case quickly heats

    When this book jumped right to the action with a down on her luck news reporter getting an anonymous tip and finding a twenty year old skeleton in a storage unit, I knew I was in for a captivating ride.

    Zoe Spencer helps bring justice to victims by using her gift of sculpture and the victim’s skeletal remains to identify them. When her latest project turns out to be the remains of a young woman whose kidnapping almost twenty years earlier was widely publicized, a cold case quickly heats back up again.

    The identification of the body brings her back into contact with William Vaughn, homicide detective extraordinaire and Zoe’s ex-acquaintance with benefits. A new round of killings bears striking similarities to the murder from all those years ago. Could they be dealing with a copycat killer or has the original killer returned to finish what they started?

    I’m not going to spoil a thing here so I’ll keep it safe and say if you’re a fan of police procedurals without a lot of extra storyline to convolute the mystery,

    should be at the top of your TBR pile. The information drops and pacing of the story were just right and I was riveted to this book from the moment I started reading. The main characters are fleshed out just enough to connect to, but not enough to take the focus away from the mystery, which is what I’m looking for when I pick up this type of story. I also appreciate the fact just enough alternate points of view were provided to keep things interesting, but not too many as to bog things down.

    reintroduced me to the awesomeness that is Mary Burton and for that, I’m thankful. I’m anxiously awaiting the next book in the series and to see what Ms. Burton has in store for us next.

    I See You by Mary Burton is the second book in the thrilling romantic suspense Criminal Profiler series. Each of the books in this series and others by the author change the main characters of the book giving readers a whole new romance plot while loosely connecting the cases.

    I See You by Mary Burton is the second book in the thrilling romantic suspense Criminal Profiler series. Each of the books in this series and others by the author change the main characters of the book giving readers a whole new romance plot while loosely connecting the cases. The characters in the first book of this series actually came from another Mary Burton series but even with all the crossover book to book or series to series these can be read as a standalone or out of order and understood if choosing to do so.

    I See You introduces special agent Zoe Spencer with the FBI who not only works cases bit is often used as a skeletal reconstruction specialist when there is not another way to identify a victim. Zoe had just finished up reconstructing a skull which led to finding it belonged to a teenage girl from an old cold case.

    As Zoe heads to the girls hometown and begins to investigate she finds herself crossing paths with homicide detective William Vaughan. The two have a history together being what some would call friends with benefits and diving into the case brings those moments to light. In the middle of the cold case investigation the pair also discover they may have an active serial killer on their hands to track down.

    One of the things I love with a Mary Burton title is that while they are romantic suspense she still has a great grasp on the thrilling side of the story instead of letting the steamier side take over. These characters also had an established beginning which I enjoy too so we don’t dive into an uncomfortable insta-love area and just let things grow as the focus stays on the crime at hand for a good portion of the story making this another solid installment to the series.

    I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    I liked this book. I'm not familiar with the series but I was able to jump in with no trouble. The love story balanced well with the suspense and there wasn't an excess of psychology to bog it down but enough to make it plausible and interesting. I really like the main character, Zoe Spencer. She was a tough woman and in the end, I was rooting for her to kick butt. Her romance with William Vaughn is steamy but doesn't feel unbelievable. I could tell the previous stories set up their connection

    I liked this book. I'm not familiar with the series but I was able to jump in with no trouble.

She was a tough woman and in the end, I was rooting for her to kick butt. Her romance with William Vaughn is steamy but doesn't feel unbelievable. I could tell the previous stories set up their connection already so I was on board to explore where they were in their relationship.

    The mystery had a clear story about family secrets and unfolded without too much foreshadowing. The story moves quickly and has a solid plot that didn't try to serve gimmicks. It made me want to read other books in the series and put Mary Burton on my radar in the future.

    A cold case. A recent murder. More than one suspect.

    An interesting criminal profiler and a sharp detective.

    All of that combined had the making of a great read.

    This story was interesting. I loved that it told so many stories in one book. Discussing different kinds of parents, father-son relationship, family drama and romantic feelings.

    The murder story was interesting, kept me guessing. But I found that it wasn't as well-plotted as other crime/detective novels. But I still liked it.

    Note - I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This is my first Mary Burton book, and I had high hopes. Unfortunately, it fails to deliver.

    There were just so many things wrong with it. If I was not bored while reading the book, then I was irritated.

    First of all, Zoe was a Mary Sue character. She was a dancer, FBI special agent, artist, sculptor and a profiler. All of these are full time profession by themselves, and our heroine was all of them. The next problem I had

    This is my first Mary Burton book, and I had high hopes. Unfortunately, it fails to deliver.

    There were just so many things wrong with it. If I was not bored while reading the book, then I was irritated.

    First of all, Zoe was a Mary Sue character. She was a dancer, FBI special agent, artist, sculptor and a profiler. All of these are full time profession by themselves, and our heroine was all of them. The next problem I had was, even after having capability for being all this, she was dumb. She didn't follow the necessary leads, she barely stumbled onto the killer's identity, she confronted a killer without backup, and basically, the book would have been no different if she had not been in it.

    Secondly, this book had very visible lack of research. Even after just watching crime tv shows, I had better knowledge than what was portrayed in the book. Leads that should have been obviously followed were ignored, forensic procedures were a joke, procedures and laws ignored when convenient, protocols not followed, confessions thrown out the window by lawyers or confessions acquired in front of lawyers (I don't know which one is worse) ... basically, the book was a mess.

    My next problem, was lack of clear logical sequence and explanations. The book was very haphazardly written and there was no 'hallelujah' moment at the end, where it was all explained. There was so many unanswered questions and plot holes, like...

    Lastly, I found a lot of chapters to be extraneous. Take for example, the chapter where the journalist talks to Jason Dalton. They talk about all the things that he already talked to with Zoe and Vaughn. It was repetitive and unnecessary. This made the book quite boring at parts.

    Overall, I would have liked the book far more if it was well researched and had a more satisfactory ending. I didn't like that the main protagonists basically stumbled onto the answer. It could have been better written.
