Talk about starting out with action right from the start. Sophie is on her way to sign up for college classes to help enhance her resume in the hopes of getting a promotion at the Delphi Center from receptionist into their PR department. As she makes her way across campus a gunman opens fire into the crowd of students and faculty. People are scrambling to get out of the way, and as Sophie finds a hiding spot, she sees a pregnant woman who was hit and lay
The Tracer series has been getting better and better for me, it is a good blend of suspense and romance with characters who are real, screw up, fight, make-up but don't give up on life and Snapped is a very good installment and is the story I have been waiting for.

The book can be read as a stand-alone but Sophie and Jonah are people we have met before. Sophie was nearly a victim of a serial killer and Jonah a detective saved her. He has had the hots for her ever since but hasn't done anything ab
The fourth book in the Tracers series by Laura Griffin and a good satisfying addition. I must admit, though, I didn't feel pulled into this one as strongly as the past stories have done to me. While I did like Jonah, I didn't really care too much for Sophie at times. She was one of those TSTL heroines determined to make protecting her difficult for Jonah. The motive for this crime seemed flimsy and I felt the the author may be setting up for future stories by carrying over the plot started here. ...more

Sophia didn’t know what a bad day was until she was crouched behind a statue on the campus grounds watching in horror as people bled out around her as a result of the sniper shooting from the top of the library. She has cheated death once before, maybe this time would do the trick.

As Jonah and his trained team are making their way to the top of the library he catches a glimpse of a woman in the middle of the chaos that he not only saved once before but who has turned his emotions inside out. Nev
TBR Reading Challenge: General Category- This book has been on my TBR list since December 2010.


I loved the suspense plot of this book, and as always I enjoyed the writing. Laura Griffin is a very consistent writer. Unfortunately, I didn't really "feel the love" between the main characters. Their communication skills were abysmal, and I didn't end the book feeling like they had learned to trust one another. Added to that, Sophie had a few TSTL moments, one serious. She somehow manages to blam
This was a really good romantic suspense read. I liked it much better than the last one. It took me awhile to get the connection on the heroine's part. I would have been all over the hero...he was too sweet. I hope that we see a future book between Sean and Gretchen...they had an instant connection.
Quite possibly my favorite Laura Griffin book to date! It could be that I'm still surfing the high of it, but I really loved this one. After what Sophie went through in the last book, I really wanted good things for her, and Jonah was an amazing hero. As with many LG books, the hero is reluctant to get involved with the heroine because he is a cop and she is somehow involved in the investigation. I loved that Sophie kind of pushed herself in his life.

The mystery was fantastic, with a truly chill

I think this is my favorite of the Tracer series to date. There was much more suspense and less romance, but I don't think that took away from the story. The story wasn't one that could be determined in the first few chapters, and you really felt for the characters. I wish there had been more interaction with the child she saved, but that is my soft side poking out. Really great addition to the Tracer series.
The romance leaves a litte to be desired, but I liked Jonah and Sophie. LG writes great suspense and I love her stories. I dont' want to put it down.
Interesting plot, the h/h could have been more developed

The book was not bad, the action, mystery was there, but it was lacking in romance parts; other than some in depth sex scenes, the sexual attractiveness does not necessitate love and this is where the romance failed for me.
I find it hard to connect with the main characters and was looking for their characterisation development and disappointedly, there was no foundation for their prefessed feelings. I wanted to see more thoughts from the he
Cindy ~ SnS Reviews
This book starts right off with Sophie Barrett going to sign up for a class and then a sniper opens fire on the college campus. I cannot imagine what this would be like. In fear for your own life yet being to helpless and having to watch others get shot. (view spoiler) ...more

Fourth in the Tracers romantic suspense series revolving around people involved with the Delphi Center, a veritable palace of forensic analysis. The couple focus here is on Sophie Barrett and Jonah Macon.

My Take
I do enjoy Griffin's real-life writing with characters you'd enjoy meeting up with at the corner bar. It's also like a read through on CSI with the talk of DNA analysis, ballistics, raising images of filed-off gun serial numbers and documents, and trace evidence.

It's definitely Texas wh
It's been a while since I last read the previous book of Laura Griffin's. I guess I should probably have gone back and reread the bits about the h/h in this book - how they met and all those stuffs. I didn't and it costs me some pleasure in reading this latest addition to a now 4-book tracer series.

First and foremost, the mystery plot, the sequence of initial shooting scenes is very well written and they carry my interest through to the very end despite the bland h/h's about whom we'll talk lat

4.5/5; 5 stars; A

This week I really badly needed a book related escape. Laura Griffin kindly delivered that with this book. In fact, as her books usually do, it sucked me in from the first page and offered a well paced romantic suspense that entertained me from beginning to end.

I have liked the character of Sophie right from the time she went to work for Alex, a few books back. She is smart and feisty yet she has ample flaws and faces a lot of challenges. She is a believable, sympathetic heroin
Anne OK
Another fantastic addition to the Tracer series. I loved the pairing of Sophie and Jonah from their first encounter in "Unforgivable." Seeing them work more closely together and seeing their relationship grow stronger put the icing on the cake for me in this one. You can always count on Laura Griffin to provide an exciting and suspenseful thrill ride. "Snapped" got your attention from the get-go with bullets flying on a college campus while young and old alike ran for cover and their lives. Thro ...more

SNAPPED - TRACER SERIES #4 - (Jonah and Sophie)

Sophie Barrett Thinks She's Lucky To Be Alive.
She May Be Dead Wrong.
On a sweltering summer afternoon, Sophie Barrett walks into a nightmare. A sniper has opened fire on a college campus. When the carnage is over, three people - plus the shooter - are dead and dozens more are injured. Sophie escapes virtually unscathed. Yet as details emerge from the investigation, she becomes convinced that this wasn't the random, senseless act it appeared to be. No
Another great instalment to the Tracer series and maybe my favorite to date!

Ever since I read the except of Snapped by Laura Griffin, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the actual book and moved it right to the top of the TBR pile as soon as it arrived. I stayed up waaaaaay to late that first night reading, but I just couldn’t put it down.

A sniper shooting up a university campus, supposedly talking random pot-shots at students, professors and unlucky Delphi receptionist Sophie Barrett who just
Michelle (Michelle&Leslie's Book Picks)
I first met Jonah and Sophie in Unforgivable and there was some definite sparks there so I couldn't wait to read their story. I was also very intrigued by the school shooting premise. The whole time I was reading, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next--I wasn't sure where the author will take the story especially after the shooter shot himself in chapter three. But take it she did and after the highly charged beginning, I was at the edge of my seat the whole entire time.

With a story line ripped from today’s headlines and a little conspiracy thrown in Griffin has written a fast paced, don’t want to put it down suspense.

Sadly a campus shooting is not the stuff of fiction any longer, a horrible experience that many would not willingly imagine themselves in. In Snapped Sophie finds herself right in the middle of a nightmare, and like in a nightmare she feels frozen and helpless. That doesn’t stop her from trying to save a little girls life, a glimpse into the steel
I loved this book. It was worth the wait.

I loved Sophie when we met her back in Alex's story UNTRACEABLE. She is very strong minded opinionated and hates when somebody questioning her. The experiences she endures through this book it makes your heart clench. It made me angry when she came up with theories and introduced them to the investigators she was shunned like she wanted attention instead of catching a killer. Unlike a lot of other authors and different series Sophie was not made to be a w

Based on real events, this book starts right in the middle of the action. A sniper has plopped himself onto of the roof of the library building at a Texas University. Shooting into the quad courtyard many are being hit and it is complete chaos. Sophie, a receptionist at the Delphi Center, a very sophisticated forensic lab, has come to the campus on her lunch break to register for some classes. Although her real dream is to become a singer, her current hope is to eventually try for the PR positio ...more

Another five star book in Laura Griffins Tracer series!

This is Jonah Macon and Sophie Barrett's story. Sophie is the receptionist at the Delphi Center but we first met her as Alex Lowell's new assistant in Untraceable and she played a major part in the last book Unforgivable, which is also where we first meet Jonah.

Sophie is still uneasy with her life after the attack from the maniac in the last story. Jonah was the one who saved her life. Sophie decides to take some college courses as she w

Having read all of Laura Griffin's other works I waited very impatiently for the release of her new novel featuring Sophie Barret and Jonah Macon. It was worth the wait - I absolutely loved it, much as I have loved her others, and I finished it much too soon.
We first meet meet Sophie in "Untraceable" and Jonah in "Unforgiveable" and I was very pleased that they finally were able to tell their story. It is a good one with lots of fireworks, suspense and well thought out details.

This book grabbed me in the beginning. Ms Griffin did an awesome job instilling you with the fear and panic of the situation. She did a great job of projecting the tension that the characters were feeling. While I enjoyed this, I couldn't help thinking that the end of the book must be extraordinary awesome and action packed. The book moved along well, Ms Griffin seemed to know when to toss a bit of action or tidbit of information in to move the plot along and keep you interested. Yet toward the ...more

What she doesn’t know is that she’s just opened one huge can of worms and they just might eat her alive.
