Still Waters

When the body of a murdered man literally falls at Elizabeth Stuart's feet, she's able to wash away the blood - but not the terror. Unwelcome newcomers to Still Creek, Minnesota, she and her troubled teenage son are treated with suspicion by the locals, including the sheriff. Yet nothing will stop her from digging beneath the town's placid surface for the truth - except the killer. Now Elizabeth must risk everything to save her family and unmask the killer - before the current of evil flowing through Still Creek drags her under.

Publisher's Summary

When the body of a murdered man literally falls at Elizabeth Stuart's feet, she's able to wash away the blood - but not the terror. Unwelcome newcomers to Still Creek, Minnesota, she and her troubled teenage son are treated with suspicion by the locals, including the sheriff. Yet nothing will stop her from digging beneath the town's placid surface for the truth - except the killer.

Running from a messy divorce, Elizabeth believed buying a small-town newspaper offered a fresh start for herself and her son. But idyllic Still Creek, nestled in the heart of lush Amish farmlands, hides secrets dangerous enough to push someone to commit murder.

Now Elizabeth must risk everything to save herself and her son and to unmask the killer - before the current of evil flowing through Still Creek drags her under.

    "Hold on to your Desert Eagle"
    Would you listen to Still Waters again? Why?

    this is Ms Hoag's all time best story. I have waited 10 years to get the full version.
    Rich characters and Ms Bean does a wonderful job with our lead lady


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    mystery story with sexy dialogue


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    she captured the southern sound so well


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    it had some great humor


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Tami's work, this is must buy in full version

    "Good grief."

    This must be Tami Hoag in a prior life, writing a different genre. Pure romance -- assuming that's what the intent is.

    I get more pleasure listening to the two feral cats out in the back yard, snarling, howling and hissing at each other prior to mating..... at least the cats are honest about it.

    "Huge Disappointment"

    I've listened to several of Tami Hoag's most recent books and they were great thrillers with a tiny bit of romance interspersed throughout. This book on the other hand, was a horrendously cheesy romance with a flimsy "thriller" plot. I almost didn't make it through. I should have paid better attention to reviews that said that it was a romance, but the overwhelming ratings were positive, so I thought I'd give it a shot. If you're expecting a thriller, don't waste your credit.

    Also, the narrator's performance of Elizabeth was twangy and grating - for a heroine that was supposed to be an attractive woman with a voice of "sex and smoke" - she was anything but that...

    "Harlequin Romance here we come..."
    Would you try another book from Tami Hoag and/or Joyce Bean?

    I've listened to several Tami Hoag books and have enjoyed them all, until Still Waters. In the previous Tami Hoag novels the suspense and mystery kept me reading (or listening) while the romance was just a small part of the overall book. In Still Waters the whole book is a romance novel and an unbelievable one at that. Puhleeze..."Oh I hate this man and he treats me with disrespect, but I also just can't resist his physical appeal so let me jump his bones.". Ugh. I found myself rolling my eyes throughout the book, just trying to get through. Not only that but I couldn't stand either of the main characters ( who can't resist each other though they can't stand each other). The narrorator's version of Elizabeth comes off not as a sophisticated southern bell but more as your typical poor white trash. Nails on a chalkboard. I had to fast forward through so much of this book because I was repulsed by the idiocy. Too much romance (and unbelievable at that) and not enough plot.

    "Twisted"
    Where does Still Waters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the top listens.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Still Waters?

    When Elizabeth finally figures out the truth


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, it was hard to shut off and go to sleep at night


    Any additional comments?

    As always with Tammy Hoag this was not disappointing. I love listening to her books.

    "Still Waters"

    If you have ever read Tami Hoag then you know her style of writing does have lots of romance and some mystery. I read this many years ago and enjoyed the story, but I had a little harder time this time around due to Dane being a jerk to Elizabeth during most of the story, plus there was an annoying poor me mentality from all the characters. You can tell this book was made in the early 90’s, due to the lack of technology in the story and all the smoking done by most of the characters. I enjoy Tami Hoag’s later books more than her earlier ones. Another good one is Cry Wolf, Dark Paradise and 1. Dark Horse, 2. Alibi Man.

    "wonderful"

    I am at a loss why there were some seriously negative reviews. I truly enjoyed this book. I just recently found this author. I am working backwards from the one I started with. I liked the humor and didn't see large amount of romance.

    "Horrible narration"
    What disappointed you about Still Waters?

    The narrator was so robotic! Her sexy southern sounded like a Reba Mcintire, Dane didn't sound sexy either. Each sentence ended so abruptly and words were even mispronounced. Honestly I don't know how anyone can think this is good audio, it's as if the woman had no understanding of the book and characters. Staccato, robotic, doesn't flow.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tami Hoag? Why or why not?

    I love Tami Hoag books, have read everyone of them. Have listened to several others and will listen to more


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance could have been better in every way. She could not have sounded like a robot.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I love Tami hoag stories this narration almost ruined it but it's still a good book
