I have to give it a three because although I finished the book only two months ago (I’m behind in my reviewing), I had a difficult time remembering the end. I remembered the rest of the book but had to go back and re-read the ending before finishing my review. Guess that does not say much for the book. Not memorable.
People have said that they are tired of all the Jewish terminology in Kellerman’s books but I find it fascinating. In this book there is more than usual because Decker and his wife, Rena, actually go to Israel. I found parts of the Jewish heritage very interesting such as Rena realizing that the one Rabi was an imposter by the way he phrased things. Rena plays a bigger role in this book than others.
The part of the book about the diamond industry was not particularly interesting to me because I have learned so much about the industry, even the seedy underworld part, from the history channel and other TV shows.
The diamond industry comes into play as a subplot because Decker is working on a case in LA in which a wealthy diamond merchant and his entire family have disappeared. Rena also has a friend from NY whose husband is a diamond merchant and he is murdered. Rena’s friend, Honey, and her children then also disappear.
I guess that I initially did not remember the ending because I did not like it. It seemed to be out of place or unconnected with the majority of the story.
The reader is always very good and especially good with children's voices.
Too many loose ends that aren't even picked up in the next book. Love the series but this one was a bomb.
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.
