Dedicated to Stephanie Solomon-Lopez. Many, many thanks for all you’ve done, including your help with The Killing Room.

Dedicated to Stephanie Solomon-Lopez. Gerri lives in the Piney Woods of East Texas with her partner, Diane, and their two labs, Zach and Max, and a bucketful of cats.

Jake McCoy drove along the Taylor River, her Land Cruiser packed to the brim for a few weeks of unexpected solitude.

The Killing Room book. I like characters in books and Gerri Hill does an excellent job of writing interesting and compelling characters. She seems to write stand alone novels with characters that would work well in a series format.

Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). The writing was good, I won't complain about that. This was the fourth Gerri Hill book I've read. Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Again, nice premise, two women have a wonderful nearly anonymous passionate encounter in a hot springs in the mountains, and never expect to see each other again.

Gerri Hill is such a fun writer, yeah I know it's a serious crime, however, it's fiction and the characters banter is. .But aside from that, I adored the book. And I'm in love with Jake McCoy (just like all the other women smitten by her).

Gerri Hill is such a fun writer, yeah I know it's a serious crime, however, it's fiction and the characters banter is always fu.I really enjoy how Gerri Hill deals with her male characters as well a good read. I'm pretty much stuck on Gerri Hill at the moment and i will probably read all her books before looking elsewhere.

Before I begin I would like to first warn potential buyers of this book that spoilers will follow so continue at your own discretion.

The story starts off slow, it doesn't really get interesting until more that halfway through when the killer gets bolder. The majority of the story is building up to that and then the final showdown.

The writing was good, I won't complain about that. This was the fourth Gerri Hill book I've read. I enjoyed Hunter's Way (the best to me so far) The Target (also pretty good), Snow Falls was not really good to me (see my review on that one). Again, nice premise, two women have a wonderful nearly anonymous passionate encounter in a hot springs in the mountains, and never expect to see each other again. A murder investigation brings them together unexpectedly and there you have it. Plot. Along with the murderer on the loose as a backdrop it just goes from there.

However, it was the lack of common sense among the two main characters, Jake and Nicole that bothered me. As the story progressed and they got together again physically and their feelings grew, they NEVER talked about it. Sure they both mentioned it in their inner monologues and how important it was that they talk about their feelings, but it never happened. What would happen was sex, not complaining about that, because all the sex scenes were hot, but really? Common sense says you talk to the person you think/know your falling in love with and they had so many opportunities to just talk. Rather than talk about it, they both stupidly thought that the other did not care and that it was just sex, and that the minute the case was over, their relationship would be over. Again really? Why assume that? A detective and a psychiatrist can't have a simple conversation about where this relationship is going? That was not only stupid, it just made no sense. And what was with the lesbians kissing the two guys (Jake kissing her partner Rick on the mouth and Nicole kissing the guy that works the police force too on the mouth as a thank you?).Is it just me or is that inappropriate and weird?

Once again, it's not until the last few pages that at least one character gets her act together and goes after the other and they profess their love, have sex, and THEN HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT THEIR FEELINGS. FINALLY! I am getting so tired of the authors making their characters act like idiots for the majority of a story and then finally seeing the light in the last few pages. Why is that? Do they really want the characters to suffer? Or are we the reader the one's who they want to suffer?

Interestingly enough, since I was so disappointed with Snow Falls, I really did not get my hopes up to much about this one. I was still left feeling like it was just an okay read so that is why I gave it 3 stars, I wish there was a 2.5 option though.

This book was SO GOOD. It was not what I expected, even in the least. Typically I am pretty good at predicting outcomes, but this one had me guessing. I literally thought that this book would be lighthearted with a dash of tragedy but how I was wrong! Full of suspense, twists and turns; I couldn't put it down and read it in a day, trembling in anticipation at some parts (and not for reasons you would think). Fantastic story. My only issue with it was that one of the main characters, Nicole, allowed herself to be manipulated and persuaded by her one-track minded, power hungry friends, which was irritating beyond belief. But aside from that, I adored the book. And I'm in love with Jake McCoy (just like all the other women smitten by her).

This is a very good romance, mystery. Many twists and turns. The characters are likeable and loyal to each other. The romance is very steamy. But I gave it a 3 star because I was so disappointed in the quickly wrapped up ending.
Spoiler alert! All the way through the book there was this constant theme that Nicole and Jake were from 2 different worlds and could never be together. And after all that Jake did, risking her life, Nicole still didn't feel it would work. And then in about 2 pages from the end Nicole decides she is in love with Jake and goes to her. What? Why? No explanation how they are going to live together. Jake is retired and wants to stay at the cabin and Nicole still has her practice in the city. So how was that going to work. Come on Gerri..I waited the entire novel to have you tell me the solution...and there was none. I guess we are suppose to think love conquers all. Great book but disappointing ending.

"Jake" McCoy is a detective, who has taken some leave time after being injured in the line of duty and Nicole Westbrook is a psychologist and closeted lesbian. The two meet in the wilds of Colorado where Jake is recuperating and Nicole is vacating. Nicole is hopelessly lost when she meets Jake. Their attaction sizzles and they have great sex in a hot spring.

The memory of their encounter lingers in their minds but they never think they'll meet again but, of course, they do.

There is a serial murderer loose in Denver. The women are victims of abuse who have two things in common: a rape crisis center and Dr. Nicole Westbrook.

When Jake goes to meet said Dr. Westbrooke she has no idea that this is the woman she had mind-blowing sex with.

The novel deftly combines a great romance with a great mystery. There is also an interesting sub-plot revolving around Nicole's closeted life-style and her membership in a closeted professional women's organization. As she becomes more involved with Jake, she starts to question her lifestyle; the group and the lie she has had no problem living with for years.

The suspense rises and continues to a surprising wrenching conclusion as Jake races to save Nicole from a mad killer who is hunting her.

Read it. Savor it. Gerri Hill's writing has grown tremendously over the years and this is her best novel to date. It will be hard for her to top the romance, suspense and intensity of this book.

this is a very well thought out and written story. Jake is recovering in the mountains at her cabin when she runs across Nicole who is escaping her life for a week or so. Instant chemistry ignites between them. Never thinking they'd see one another, Detective Jake is surprised to find her latest case involving psychologist Nicole. While fighting their attraction to one another, Jake has to push her feelings aside to protect the woman she could easily fall for. But Nicole is a closeted professional. She only dates those like her. Can they get past their different backgrounds. More importantly can they escape a killer? But who is the real killer?
