Lisa Jackson always provides great characters, interesting plots and tension-filled suspension

Lisa Jackson always provides great characters, interesting plots and tension-filled suspension. I only wish I could eliminate the paragraphs of gratuitous sex scattered here and there that seem to fulfill some ""checklist" yet do nothing to move the plot along or to further develop the characters. Such paragraphs do not seem to fit in with the style of rest of Jackson's writing, and actually detract from what else is going on in the story. Readers can gain insight into a couple's sexual intimacy without requiring the "blow-by-blow" details.

Claire whispered under her breath as she ran after Samantha through the house, out the front door, and down the street. A hot breeze turned the leaves of the aspen trees, causing them to shimmer in the sunlight, and somewhere behind the neighbor’s house a dog was barking fiercely. Claire dashed down the sidewalk, dodging a tricycle and a bump in the walk where the roots of a tree had buckled the cement, all the while chasing after her daughter.

Kensington Books, 1 нояб. Lisa Jackson knows how to drag the reader into her romantic suspense filled novels with her words. All the way through the book I felt as if I was.

Was expecting more of a thriller but every other page was about sex, lust , etc and I got bored with the whole book. Thought it was a mystery thriller and turned out to be a romance novel. Never got to the end.

Well, I already wrote a long review on this book and it was somehow not posted. Hmmm.

Anyway, this book was okay and probably could have been great with a bit more work. This is a reprint so it was probably written early in Lisa Jackson's career. She's a better author now and I love pretty much every single book she releases.

This book was interesting enough to keep reading but I had to skim a few slow spots. I liked many of the characters and the one's I didn't was because I wasn't supposed to like them. However, the "bad guy" left me feeling blah. He was obviously supposed to be terrifying but it didn't quite work for me. He was more pitiful than scary.

The plot was interesting but predictable. The main two families were real pieces of work (and if I could sub "work" with another four letter word, I would). It was fascinating to read about them but I expected a bit more 'they got what they deserved'. Both dad's should have at least had their butts kicked.

The romantic main pair worked a lot better when they were teenagers but when they reconnected, it seemed to be too easy. Though to be fair, I find that the case if every romance book.

Overall, I liked it enough that I don't feel I wasted my money but I wouldn't tell all my friends and family to go buy this book.

Not what I thought it was going to be. The book is in the so-called genre of "romance and suspense" which I hate. Amazon refuses to put this insipid genre in it's own category. So people like me who are looking for an actual mystery that doesn't include ridiculous and lame storylines are tricked into purchasing. I didn't finish the book; I couldn't. The characters are all caricatures: the rich Daddies in constant competition, the wounded hero, the bad brother, the good brother, the uptight professional oldest daughter, the confused middle daughter and the youngest daughter who's a rebel of course. The names given to some of the men characters in the book should have been a hint that this book was not as advertised. Why do romance authors feel it is necessary to give characters absurd names like Kane, Denver, Harley and Weston? What's wrong with Tom, Dick or Harry? At least I know not to purchase Lisa Jackson books anymore.

It was an average murder mystery cloaking a standard issue pulp romance. The mystery and characters were predictable and juvenile and the romance was awful (pages on end of details like"his throbbing erection strained against his jeans" simply strung together into long romance scenes that took up most of the book). The only reason I'm giving it two stars instead of one is because it is written with proper grammar and internal consistency (both important to me in books). You may like it better than I did, if that's your sort of book, but I had a difficult time finishing it.

The characters were fairly typical--good sister, bad sister, weak sister, weak brother, 2 sets horrid parents to blame, a character that was a miserable excuse for a human being, 2 of those in fact, the unattractive and sullen younger sister (also the red herring), the essential bad boy and sullen teen in need of a good visit to the woodshed. No real depth to characters but a well defined sisterly bond--however shallow. There is an alluding of how the sins of the parents trickle down to the children and how they shaped the children but it is only in passing to bring something to the story--not much but something as the parents --- ALL four of them would NEVER be nominated for parent of the year and are only worthy of being shot.
After reading the 10 horrific nanny book series anything was better.

Readers can gain insight into a couple's sexual intimacy without requiring the "blow-by-blow" details. Having gotten that off my chest, I do recommend this novel by Lisa Jackson, as well as her other works, for well-written effective and intriguing suspense reading.

I have been listening to the Audible version of this book. One of the pains is that it is difficult to fast forward or skim over the sex scenes, which seem unnecessarily violent and incredibly similar. It is also interesting that most of hte characters use the same swear word, s***. We had more swear words in the 90s.

It is also very predictable.
Twisting thriller. Page-turning story of two dysfunctional, feuding families. Easy to follow, even though it covers 16 years. For the most part, it is in present time. Believable characters with distinct personalities and realistic dialogue.

"First card faceup was the king of diamonds, old Dutch Holland, patriarch and would-be governor of the state, a man who claimed to be of the people, but, Kane knew, was more twisted than a sailor’s knot."

I will re-read this story and always look forward to works by this author.
