    The first victim is found in a snow-covered Philadelphia field. Detective Vito Ciccotelli enlists the aid of archaeologist Sophie Johannsen to determine exactly what lies beneath the frozen ground. Despite years of unearthing things long buried, nothing can prepare Sophie for the matrix of graves dug with chilling precision. The victims buried there haunt her. But the killer isn't done yet. He is cold and calculating, the master of a twisted game. Even with Vito and Sophie hot on his trail, he will not stop.

    Overall

    Great book, very intense! Karen Rose has a morbid mind though. At times, her scenes got so descriptive that you could feel a chill run down your spine. Very morbid torture scenes...beware.
    There are so many elements going on that it made my head spin. Characters left and right. Took me a while to remember who was who (especially with the hero and his 4 brothers all having rhyming names).
    The romance scenes were weak--but this isn't a book for great sex scenes. In fact, you actually wish they'd skip the romance and get back to the plot! I wouldn't suggest this book for someone looking for a typical romance novel where two people fall in love--the woman gets into trouble and the man saves the day. There's way too much plot to this one.
    Its true that many of the characters are either good or evil, but the thrill for me was how the cops found the bad guy.
    I thought the book was amazing. Great read, err... listen.

    After news of his mother's weak heart summons him home, globetrotting journalist Roman Chandler loses a coin toss with his brothers that determines who will relinquish his bachelor status to give their mother a grandchild. Roman decides to settle down without giving up his travel-intensive job, and as one of the most handsome men in town, he can have his pick of the local women - except for Charlotte Bronson, his high-school crush.

    I usually like any book written by anyone...but this book was OH so boring. The storyline was weak. Very light book that gets a few laughs out of you though. Good luck!

    Lisa Jackson's novels of romance and suspense race up the best-seller charts. In Left to Die, the Pinewood County Sheriff 's Department is on the trail of a cold-blooded killer who acts as a savior to women stranded during terrible mountain snowstorms before stripping them of their dignity and leaving them to die, a victim of the elements. But the killer's latest victim managed to escape, leading some to believe there may now be an imposter on the loose.

    "Starts slow but comes out strong"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. It started out a little bit slow--- and there are a lot of characters to keep up with, but in the end I was really happy with this book.
    It is the first book in a new trilogy... and the next book is not supposed to be out until October 09 (according to the writer's website). I can't wait to find out what happens next!
