This book did not keep me up nights wanting to finish.
A friend got me hooked on the “Women’s Murder Club” series and James Patterson but I had not read any of the Alex Cross series until this book and I am very ambivalent about it.
As I read the book I kept thinking “Get Real”. This guy, Cross, is THE only cop in the city that can do any police work and on top of that has to do the job of the FBI and all in one night? First he has to solve a robbery, then he has to defuse a hostage situation, and to top the day off he works on a terrorism case involving a terrorist named Hala Al Dossari who he has apparently been involved with in the past. This terrorist situation has this superhero saving the world. All of this is in a very short book and in one night. PLEASE>>>
Although it is fast-paced and has some great twists with Hala’s disguises and the poison it was a huge disappointment because no part of it was in any way believable.
It is three loosely connected short stories and then the book abruptly ends.
This is definitely geared for a younger person in their 20’s – 30’s. The sex scenes were tooooo much.
I truly liked Charlaine Harris and this series, until now.
This book totally turned me off because it is DEPRESSING because of the child abductions.
Then the book took a left turn with Tolliver, the brother. Totally unnecessary and a distraction.
This could have been an excellent book in a very good series. The idea of the dead communicating from the grave was a great start to a new kind of paranormal experience in books.
I'll try the next book BUT I'm not so sure that I will stick with the series. There are a LOT of buts...
This series does not disappoint. On to the next one. The series is THAT good.
Game warden not sheriff. WY the only similarity. Content story FANTASTIC. Have to read the entire series.
Sentimental like "The Notebook" but did not leave me wanting more. As our heroine points out scrapbooking is for everyone from the business that wants to tell its story to the individual who wants to leave the family memories. Underneath those basic needs is a heartfelt story.
I want more. This does not cry sequel but I want more from this author.
I want more in the series. It is just plain old fun to read and very light hearted despite the witches or maybe because of them. Good mystery series.
My daughter recommended this book BUT then she said, "it is my vampire porn". That ALMOST prevented me from reading this. It ended up to be a very good recommendation and NO porn.
Too many characters. Too drawn out. Too boring. I wanted tell the author to "Just Get On With It." Not as good as the first book.
Fun book that I would recommend.
The new owners of historic Bernini House want to return it to its original state and make it into a haunted Bed and Breakfast. They have heard about Mel’s special gifts in communicating with the dead and are hoping that she can convince the ghost family to stay. Although Mel has met Annabelle, one of the children (ghost) that lives in the house, she has competition for the job. Avery Builders is also going to bid on the job.
The catch is that both Mel and Josh Avery have to spend the night in the home to win the project. Whoever stays the longest wins the job. Graham, Mel’s boyfriend, doesn't like the idea of her spending the night with Josh and decides to join her. Both competitors end up with an entourage at the house because no one wants them to be alone with the ghosts.
However, that problem all goes by the wayside when a body is discovered in the well. Mel tries to convince Annabelle to tell her what happened but isn't getting any answers. Instead the haunting becomes more menacing and Mel finds herself as a suspect in the murder.
