I've been very disappointed with Julie Garwood's contemporary romance/thrillers. With the change in time, it seems she's lost the complexity of story and character development. Honestly, this book is written simply, without complex sentences, and it drove me crazy. Didn't finish it, but my boyfriend struggled through and told me how it ended, which didn't surprise me.

Though I am a fan of Julie Garwood's historial romances I was not thrilled with her turn to the contemporary genre. I decided to give the books a chance via audio...and I am really glad I did.

The heroine, Kate is a strong woman with good values...the realization that someone is trying to kill her for an unknown reason...added with the sexual tension with her best friend's brother (a detective recovering from a work-related injury)...keeps the listener engaged in the story. Twist and turns in the plot with more and more suspects added as the story unfolds...a surprise end to the suspense plus a happy ending...ahhh, romances!

I couldn't stop listening...spent the day transporting the CDs from my player downstairs to my computer upstairs to my car...just wanting to see...who the perp turned out to be!!

This story takes place in South Carolina, near Charleston, Savannah, and a little bit in Boston. It is an exciting mystery about a young woman and her two sisters surviving after their mother has died. Kate, the middle sister, starts experiencing a lot of unbelievably bad luck and it is soon discovered that someone is trying to kill her. There is also a nice romance and a happy ending.

Meh...I think I only finished it because I wanted to know what happened at the end. I was pretty bored with this and the lead female was annoying and got on my nerves most of the time with all her angst over the male leaving her.
I absolutely ADORE Julie Garwood's hitorical books (RANSOM is on my top ten list...actually top 3) but I doubt I will read any more of her contemporary books.

Just finished reading. I really enjoyed the book. It was an easy and fast read. Stayed up too late reading it. Couldn't put it down.

It was a good book. A little slow at times. I could not figure the plot out completely that keep me interested. I did not like it as well as the "Murder List".
