This book was difficult for me to get into. The Hero was a weak character, the secondary characters were silly and it read like a cozy mystery with sex. Not what I expect in a Blaze title. Pick up with caution.
This book was a 5 star read for me. Granted, I LOVE medieval historical romance, but what intrigued me was getting a glimpse of what life was like in England shortly after the Battle of Hastings. I highly recommend this book!
This was my first book by this author, but I'll certainly look for subsequent books. However, WARNING, this book, in my opinion, falls into the erotic category, so if that's not your thing, you had better pass this one up.
This is the first book in the series that I have read, and it might be my last. I struggled to finish this one--it was boring. There was so much digression into the world of mental therapy that I almost lost track of the plot. The best thing about the book were the dogs.
This was a DNF (do not finish) for me. I quit after about 100 pages. There were a dizzying amount of characters that I could not keep straight, and I was not interested enough in them or the murder to give the book any more of my time. I love the author's consignment shop books, so I'll just stick to those.
This book just did not light my fire. In fact, it took me well over 2 weeks to read it. Neither the suspense, nor the romance was up to what I expect in a Silhouette Romantic Suspense novel. This is part of the Redstone Incorporated series. This is the first of the series I have read. I'll try another one before I give up on the series entirely.
I agree whole heartedly with Susan's review. This was one fantastic romantic suspense novel. It was one of those books for me that I couldn't put down and was sorry to see come to an end. Also, like Susan, I get annoyed and literally pulled out of the story by the improper capitalization, or not, of the words Marine and Corps, and even once I saw navy SEAL!!! COME ON, HARLEQUIN!!! All these terms should be capitalized, and shame on Harlequin that they have editors that don't know this. I've read Harlequins for years, and these mistakes persist. If I could rate this book 10 stars, I would!! Thanks for a fabulous read, Ms. Anders.
I will have to whole heartedly agree with Carol's review. First of all, I am appalled that this book is so short. The actual story begins on page 7 and ends on page 197 and the font is absolutely huge!!! The story itself is very shallow. I did not feel any connection at all with the H/h, and as Carol mentioned, this was a wordy remake of the movie Groundhog Day, so there was LOTS of repetition. This is my first book by Stephanie Bond and it will most probably be my last. This book was a waste of precious time and money and I would not recommend that anyone spend a credit on this book.
I will certainly have to agree with the others who have reviewed this book. This was just flat awful. I had to force myself to finish it. The plot moved along at a snail's pace, the characters were boring, and the subject matter was depressing--divorce, alcoholism, and co-dependency. Who wants to read about that stuff in a romance novel-- especially a Blaze????? Don't waste any money and especially a precious credit on this one.
I have to agree with the other reviews. This was a fabulous read. I absolutely could not put it down. If you missed the first book in this series, Cover Me, I suggest you run to wherever you buy your books and pick that one up, too. Great series and book 3 is out in May. You can't miss with a Catherine Mann book!!
