The Kiss & The Killer: Faery Bargains, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The second installment in a faery and fanged world written by the author of the internationally best-selling Wicked Lovely series...for fans of Patricia Briggs, Chloe Neill, and Jeaniene Frost.
Half witch, half killer, wholly unsuccessful at every faery bargain so far...Geneviève Crowe makes her living beheading or resurrecting the dead in near-future New Orleans. After entering an accidental engagement, overcoming attempted murder, and discovering a family secret, Geneviève is ready for things to settle down, but carnival season in New Orleans is not the best time of year for "normal".
When Eli Stonecroft, the faery who has claimed her heart despite her best attempts, offers her a new faery bargain - she's smart enough to say no...right up to the point when she has to decide between dealing with the consequence of this faery bargain or facing the killer alone.
As the draugr mix with the locals and tourists, and bodies start to pile up, Geneviève is enlisted by the NOPD and hunting a killer amidst the swirl of parades of Carnival season.

Between fighting monsters and intrigue, Genevieve's love develops and grows as she recognizes both the love of her life and the love of the family she's created with blood relatives and friends.
I was given a free e-copy for my honest review and help with final copy edits.
I was a bit exhausted when I read and to be honest feel like I need to reread in order to give a more complete fair review. I'm a big Melissa Marr fan and have come to really appreciate and enjoy her writing.
I save 5 stars for books that stand the test of time, not for right after a first read.
3 star is my go to lazy rating for any book I read that was entertaining enough and well written enough. I might go back and upgrade.
Melissa Marr's books pretty much now get an automatic 4 from me and some I've gone back to give a 5 to.

Genevieve Crow‘s life has changed a lot since when we started following her in „The Wicked and the Dead“. She is engaged to Eli (although trying hard not to accidentally do anything to go through with the whole marriage thing), has acknowledged that the queen of the draugr is her ancestor (and ally) and has made her round of friends and self-created family even bigger. But the mysterious threat that somehow is connected to members of SAFARI isn’t eliminated. Someone is killing draugr and leaving them for Gen to find and wants her patrol for the police for unknown, but probably sinister and nefarious reasons.
The case at hand is interesting, but it’s not the focus of the plot. That is actually the development of Gen and Eli‘s relationship. I like the relationship, but I have to admit that I would have preferred more mystery solving and getting more clues on the overall picture. But I appreciated that the infodump book one suffered so severely from, is not present here. Neither are the annoying repetitions that spoiled so much of the fun for me in the first installment. That makes for much improved writing and subsequently I liked the book a lot better.
There are developments that made me interested in what comes next for Gen and her gang, so I’ll be there for the next book of the series.
