Kristi Bentz has survived being nearly
killed twice, by a serial killer. Now she is trying to get on
with her life and hopefully attain her goal of becoming a
true-crime writer. And even though her dad only wants her
safe, in New Orleans with him and her stepmother, Kristi has
to move forward. Her first step is to further her education by
becoming a student at All Saints College and enrolling in All
Saints’ English classes. Kristi does not need to tell her Dad
that the four students who have gone missing from the college
in the last two years, took the same courses and her course
load is doing double duty as research for her first novel.
Of course life is never easy. Besides the
serial killer and her cop father, there is also the
ex-boyfriend she left behind many years ago and the dark cult.
All of which add to a life that is more interesting than it
should be on occasion.
I loved Lost Souls.
Lost Souls is a fast-paced, intriguing novel that
looks at some of the dark aspects of life. I have enjoyed
Lisa Jackson’s books in the past, but this one to me, was just
perfect. I could not put it down. I found her descriptions to
be exactly what was needed and as always Ms. Jackson gives the
reader all the information they need – while managing to
surprise with twists and turns. All the characters are well
drawn to the point you feel the urge to hug the ‘lost souls’
and smack the main characters for being idiots. And as for the
relationship between Kristi and her father Rick, I just
enjoyed how developed it was, and how well they knew each
other. Also Ms. Jackson writes excellent, twisted
personalities for the leaders of the cult and those they have
affected. For all this and more, I am Joyfully Recommending
