This is a Sunny Randall novel. Robert Parker's books are easy to read with short chapters. If I know I'll get interrupted a lot, I'll read one of his books.

Too short, not enough depth; too much attention paid to the sexual relationship between Sunny and Richie.

I love the Sunny Randall series. Sometimes her "macho" side seems contrived, but it's well worth over looking any minor faults because, as usual, the plot is riveting.

Parker books are easy and quick to read.

This wasn't a great book but it was easy to read and can be read in one day so save it for a gloomy rainy day.

A great addition to Parker's Sunny Randall series. Sunny is hired to protect a female novelist (think Jackie Collins) from her ex-husband, a shrink. What do you think Sunny does? Yep, becomes his patient. Check this one out for sure, I loved it.

Loved it!! Sunny is wonderful & each book is better than the previous one. This is the 3rd one in the series.

I especially enjoyed this story. It had seemed to me that Jesse Stone and Sunny Randall were very similar in the early novels, but I think that Parker is starting to separate them at this point.

I enjoyed the psychological discussions of why she did what she did and why she is the way she is. It added another layer to the character.

I loved this book - the characters were interesting, it kept me guessing what could happen to Sunny as she takes on a job going on tour with a best selling author, as body guard/escourt to protect her from an ex husband, who is a weird psychotherapist who has all these women clients who end up dead.

I've only read one other book by this author which was ok but not great. This book was terrible. The plot was ok but it wasn't until 2/3 of the way through before you realized why Dr. Melvin was a problem. Melanie Joan is panicked for no apparent reason over her ex-husband who is stalking her. She can give no reasonable explanation as to why she is terrified of him which is irritating. He does nothing but stand outside of where ever she is and watch and yet she has a panic attack each time. I kep thinking, geez if he's that scary you must have a reason...spill it already. Melanie Joan is one of the insipid females you just want to slap the crap out of and be done with it.

I also didn't like the female lead, Sonya "Sonny" Randall. She was beyond irritating too. She divorced her husband, Richie, for whatever reason (you never do find out why) yet she pines for him and is overly jealous of his new girlfriend. And the whole Rosy issue made me want to scream. Don't get me wrong, I love pets but the icky kissy kissy isn't she precious BS between Sonny and Richie was nauseating and annoying as hell. I figured they were making such a big deal out of the dog because she was going to be a victim of Dr. Melvin but nope it was just a bizarre side plot with no relevance to the story at all.

I did enjoy Spike and would have liked more face time with his character. He seemed like the kind of guy you'd enjoy hanging out with and wouldn't even have to slap.

All in all, not sure I could stomach another novel by this author.
