Staff review

Butcher and Blackbird
By Brynne Weaver
Review by Kazia

A story about rival serial killers falling in love really had no right to be this cute but here we are. Hilarious, adorable and just a bit gruesome – this book is a surprisingly fun read if you’re in the mood for some easy banter, dark comedy and a sweet romance. Well, as sweet as a romance can be between two people who… kill other people, I suppose.

Fair warning: you may never look at cookies-and-cream ice cream the same way again.
