Cold Blooded (New Orleans #2)
Weeks later, another violent vision shatters Olivia Bechet's sleep. Convinc ...more
Cold Blooded is the 2nd book in the New Orleans Series, is the follow up to Hot Blooded ….my review on it http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/54... and having read most of the series before, I have become quite attached to the characters which appear in each story.
Rick Bentz…I so really like this man…what he has gone through i ...more
All of that being said, I enjoyed it...up until the last 25 pages...when it dawned on me that she was once again, not going to end a bo ...more
This is a pretty good series, highly recommend it for those that like a good mystery, with a bit of woowoo and suspense!
2 thumbs up and 4.5 stars (and yes there is a TSTL or two)!
The main character Olivia Benchet is cursed with a gift that has been passed down to her from her grandmother. And when her grandmother dies she ...more
Is it really when Det. Benz is called in to a case he realizes that OLivia nailed it and is suddenly more interested in what she has to say. STill skeptical how can this beautiful lady be so WEIRD.
Then a ...more
Lisa Jackson is masterful. She never fails to weave oh their a great mystery while maintaining the commitment to romance needed to be true to that genre as well. I really enjoy getting to know her primary characters. They're becoming my friends. Check her out. I think you'll become a fan, too!
As for Father James and Detective Bents' relationship? oh... wow...
I will be returning to read this one again as I am sure that there are nuances I missed this first time through. As for the feasts of saints calendar? It is amazing and quite appalling to see what it took to canonize these ladies.
What the fuck did I just read?
I will admit that I don't read a lot of romance novels, since I have little patience for many of the common literary tropes in the genre. That said, I feel this was a poor representation.
Mainly: all y'all need therapy.
Seriously, is it too much to ask for a single example of a rational and functional ...more
Com exceção de Bentz e Montoya, não gostei das personagens e ainda menos do triângulo amoroso que surgiu que era completamente escusado. É melhor nem pensar mais nisso ou ainda mudo para as 2 estrelas.
A serial killer is on the loose again in New Orleans and Detective Rick Bentz is on the case. Women are found brutally tortured and murdered in very weird ways. With a hint of religious rituals in the mix.
Olivia Benchet seems to see glimpses of the murder while it's being committed but can't see the murderer. She goes to the cops to try to help but is not very welcome.
When the killer seems to be getting close to home, Detective Bentz needs to get ...more
So, we see the same two detectives we met in Hot Blooded trying to solve the crime -- with the complication that Olivia Benchet is a witness because of her ESP, and she's trying to get Detective Bentz to believe her story. This is all made v ...more
I borrowed this book and three others (Shiver, Lost Souls and Absolute Fear) from the library, I'm glad I didn't waste my money on them. While I had them I went ahead and thumbed through them. They all had the same primary theme, the antagonist is a religious sexual psycho.
I believe New Orleans has more to offer than that.
Rick Bentz, a cop with a hardened profession, forcing himself to keep romance from dancing in the spotlight of his heart again, after him first wife Jennifer, cheated on him so many times, bearing his beloved daughter Kristi to light in the air of infidelity. Kristi's actual father, Father James McClaren, a priest who kept that secret so far buried, trying to mend the shattered relationship between him and his half brother, all while d ...more
The suspence bit at the end was as always amazing. Lisa Jackson does those always very well. But the problem is, that the rest was just ... meh.
It seems as if Jackson couldn't decide where she wanted to put more weight into, the crime bit or the romance bit. What came out was neither a thriller nor a romance. Olivia and Rick share one single moment where you could say: ah! here it starts. And it ends with it as well. The rest of the book he shoves ...more
Olivia has "visions" of women being ruthless murdered. She goes to the cops and a very skeptical Bentz slowly starts to believe her. Olivia also seeks advice from a priest, Father James, unaware that he is Bentz's half brother and their very troubled history. She is sexually attracted to both men and they to her, but her heart belongs to Be ...more

This is a second book of a series but it can be read as a stand alone novel. In this one, there is another serial killer loose in New Orleans and he has ties to the serial killer found in the first novel. Olivia has some kind of connection with this killer that allows her to have visions of his killings. She goes to the police in hopes of helping them catch the culprit.
I enjoyed this novel. The author does exactly what I want from a murder mystery novel. There is the sadis ...more
