    The scream Lena Riddle hears in the woods behind her house is enough to curdle her blood-she has no doubt that a woman is in real danger. Unfortunately, with no physical evidence, the local law officers in small-town Ash, Kentucky, dismiss her claim. But Lena knows what she heard-and it leaves her filled with fear and frustration. Ezra King is on leave from the state police, but he can't escape the guilty memories that haunt his dreams. When he sees Lena, he is immediately drawn to her.

    Would you try another book from Shiloh Walker and/or Cris Dukehart?

    Maybe - but I'd probably stay away from books in a series as a general rule. It is possible I will pick up book 2 in this series sometime. I hate an unsolved mystery and this book left the mystery unsolved.

    This book had a lot of characters and a very slow start. Spoiler alert: It ended with only a happy for now ending...and the mystery still unsolved...and I hear remaining unsolved till book #3.

    I bought this book really looking forward to it and hoping to add a new favorite author to my list of favorite authors but this one missed that mark for me.


    Would you recommend If You Hear Her to your friends? Why or why not?

    I recommend a lot of books, but this is not one I could recommend. I liked the characters, particularly the treatment of the blind heroine who likes movies and who works and walks in the woods and does all the other things sighted people do. I liked the hero. I liked the heroine's guide dog and her interaction with the dog.

    However, the things I didn't like overpowered the things I did like. I struggled to keep the characters straight, especially early in the book. The scenes without the hero and heroine REALLY slowed the pace of the developing romance in THIS book and though those scenes may have served to plant seeds for the eventual solution of the mystery the mystery still remained unsolved. My major complaint with this book is that the ending wasn't satisfying in any way. The mystery wasn't solved and the romantic relationship just sort of stopped suddenly with the heroine thinking something along the lines of she didn't know what would happen later, but for now life was good. There just wasn't a sufficient pay-off in the ending - in ANY way. If the mystery had resolved or the conflict within the romantic relationship had been stronger and more powerfully resolved I would have been happier.
