Publisher's Summary

As the minutes tick by, the body count rises in Beverly Long's Dead by Wednesday.

With no leads, no witnesses and four teenage victims, it's a race against the clock for Detective Robert Hanson to catch a vicious serial killer. But he gets thrown slightly off course when Carmen Jiminez asks for his help. Fiercely independent, the pretty pregnancy counselor is the only woman who has ever tempted Robert to give up his freewheeling bachelor life. Yet protecting Carmen from mysterious “accidents” and vengeful clients is just as difficult as winning her trust.

And the only way he can keep her and her brother safe is to conceal a wrenching secret-one an obsessed killer can't wait to use. Now Robert's newfound family is right in harm's way, and time is almost up....

Lacklustre romance, okay suspense, poor narration

The suspense thread was good and could have made this book a winner for me but the poor romantic subplot spoilt it, as did the narrator. Characterwise, the heroine was more like a nervous adolescent handling the opposite sex and navigating the perilous waters of dating. Even an innocent 'meet with friends' dinner is something that scares her. The hero's no alpha - which is fine - except putting these two together, more time is spent with mental hand-wringing than moving forward and focusing on the serial killer. It is stories like these that made me avoid these category romantic suspense books, with the rare exception being Adrianne Giordano's The Prosecutor.

The narrator was not good. She made the teenage girls sound old and there was no differentiation between her characters. Everyone sounded the same and this just made a so-so book a chore to listen to.
