It’s not that Micayla Lange is afraid of the clinking she hears coming from the first floor of the empty McMansion she’s housesitting for her uncle Nicco. She’s a cop, after all. It’s just that finding out her boyfriend was cheating on her was enough drama for one night. Now she’s alone on New Year’s Eve, wearing flannel pajamas and wielding a Glock 22 as she zeroes in on ...more

DNF after three chapters. The heroine is supposed to be a bad ass cop, but her tits are mentioned at least once per page. That's not okay. For shame, Karen Robards.

I enjoy reading Karen Robards romantic suspense books. She does them pretty well and keeps me entertained, as evidenced that I am writing this review after 11, when I should be sleeping.

This one kept me interested from page 1. It was an interesting concept of a cop and a thief, although all is not black and white with Jason, our thief. It was a sweet love story and a good suspense story. As with all of her RS books, the love developed quickly. It was believable to me and even though the sex sce

My first and not last Karen Robards book is Sleepwalker. The time period of the main story is three days. Maybe less. The first part is a flashback of Mick and Jenny's mother's murder when Mick was 11 and she was killed in front of their eyes. Now 27, Mick has nightmares every few months and she sleepwalks, sometimes waking up to her own screams. Which is how Mick finds herself out of her bed on New Year's Eve while house sitting for an old family friend.

While returning to her room, she hears a
Mandy's Review:

On the book that I have, the line below the title on the front cover reads 'A Thriller' instead of 'A Novel.' I'm not sure why they changed it because this novel is a thriller.

Micayla (aka Mick) and Jason's story can be compared to a symphony. You have your introductory, which then turns into a more full-bodied musical piece with the added tensions and plot twists. From there, the story continues to pick up speed that psychologically thrills the reader's mind and imagination. Fina
My first Robards and I really enjoyed it.There will be more!

If I have enough hands, I would give this book as many thumbs up as I possibly can. I experienced undeniable roller coaster thrills that left me frantically flipping the pages in a matter of 2 days (no it was definitely less than that). I am enthralled by the love-hate relationship between Jason, the thief, and Mick, the cop. It was a love-hate relationship. The love part- the electrifying sizzle experienced when they are in intimate contact. The hate part? Their disparate identity. I was thrill ...more
It would be a nice 3* read if the most entertaining part wasn't the beginning. At the end I was just reading dialogues.

The idea for the story is good. The idea for the characters also. The execution? not so much.

Mick was that "I'm so tough, I don't need your help" kind of girl, who you'd forgot was supposed to be a cop if it weren't mentioned all the time.
Jason was interesting, but he was stupid. I can do with a guy, who let's his chivalry cloud his judgements (I like Harry Dresden, for example)
Anne Martin
it is a shame the book contains so many mistakes which get to be tiring. They will travel by boat on lake Erie on New Year's eve. Good luck, the lake is frozen then! or a guy with two bullets in his forehead is meant to have committed suicide according to the police... how did he fire the second shot when he was already dead? the same guy was severely beaten before his "suicide" but the cops did not think anything about the marks on his body. And I could go on, no serious research has been made, ...more

I feel that this book really is quite far fetched, everything that could happen does to the two main characters Mitch and Jason. Mic interupts a robery being undertaken at her uncle's house and one of the assilants is Jason, the robery goes sour and Mic ends up having to flee with Jason. They evaid capture for a night and then are finally cauth by the police who end up being dirty cops for Mic uncle. All of this happens within 48 hour and Mic flees with Jason but she doesn't know where she is go ...more
Micalya is a cop. John Davis is a thief. They have to team up in order to save their lives. They escaped near death from her "uncle's" mansion and this is just the beginning of a run for their life that has many ups and downs. Karen Robards spins a tale that is full of ups and downs. It is intense and times and just when things seem to be getting better the tables turn into disaster.

This is an unlikely pairing. Both Mick and John have their own agendas. I did find that Mick was very naive in who
So good!! It was so hard to put down, and then when I finished it I was sorry that I had finished it so fast.
Ah yeah. A Karen Robards book that was pretty damn good. Awesome.
Andrea Khrystyne
I enjoyed this book. I liked the dialogue between Mick and Jason. Even though they had not known each other for long, I liked the relationship that was created. The storyline kept me wanting to read more because it was suspenseful. I didn't know who she could trust or not.

It is kind of funny that the bad guy, uncle nicco, was talked about a lot. But, we never get to hear from him in the book. I didn't even realize that until I started this review.

I would recommend this book. Karen Robards knows
I really loved this book. There were a few parts where I was thinking, "Oh please don't let the author take it this way," and then she did. But it worked out. It was a great book that kept me guessing and sometimes I would sit outside reading and my heart would just start pounding! Even though you know you only have twenty pages left and certainly everything is going to work out just fine - still my heart rate increased.

I like that the author didn't spend a lot of time describing people or scene
I enjoyed reading this book. It was an entertaining and very fast-paced read. It wasn't an exceptionally good book, though, or one that will stand out for me a few months from now. Def won't make my favorites list.

Basically, this one was pretty good, but it stretched the bounds of believability is some places. Mick, short for Micayla, is a cop. Her father is a cop, yet his best friend "Uncle" Nicco is a criminal of longstanding. Her father knows this and has even helped Nicco out on occasion in "small" ways. Yet, Mick, never believes the "rumors" about Uncle Nicco. So she is housesitting for Uncle Nicco on New Year's Eve when Nicco's house is burglarized and when Mick tries to arrest the burglars, she end ...more

A book with great characters and well written action scenes deserves a great story. Unfortunately, Micayka ("Mick") and Jason don't get much plot. Instead of interesting suspense plot, the story consists almost entirely of the two of them running for their lives. The running part isn't the problem. In fact, the actions scenes are well-done. The problem is that's most of the story. Of the 380 pages, about 200 of them are spent fleeing the villain's henchmen in the freezing Michigan winter.

My Summary: Mick's New Years Eve is nothing glamourous: she's staying at her Uncle Nicco's mansion, guarding it from intruders like the good cop she is. But when she's woken in the middle of the night by some ominous noises coming from the ground floor, she has no choice to investigate. So what if it's a thief? Mick's a hard-as-nails cop, and she's got her gun in case things go bad...

Oil and water. Fire and water. Those are the stuff that don't mix; and the same goes to cops and robbers.

Micayla "Mick" Lange is a cop in Karen Robards' Sleepwalker. When a family friend, "Uncle" Nicco Marino hires her to house-sit his house while they spend their week in Palm Beach for the New Year, Mick agrees since she has broken up with her boyfriend after finding him cheating on her. Her elder sister, Jenny, has her own family and she doesn't want to impose on them. She isn't in good terms
Micayla Lane, Mick, is housesitting for her Uncle Nicco. It is New Year's Eve and she has just broken up with her boyfriend. She hears a noise and goes to investigate -- after all she is a cop. She stumbles on a burglary in progress -- two men in ski caps are robbing Nicco's safe. She wrestles one of the men and holds her own when the other robber appears with a gun. The security system has been compromised. Mick tries to keep them from leaving. She and the robber see pictures of Nicco in the ro ...more
Normally I like Karen Robards' books, but not this one. Usually they are full of great characters and fast action. Most of the times they are page turners. But this time I was very disappointed.

The story starts with Micayla finding herself a witness to a robbery. The action of the robber - Jason force her to leave with him, while the security officers make chase. - What a great start to a book - so I thought...

The time line of this story is only a few days - maximum a week. Firstly Mic & Jas

I wasn’t sure that I would like Sleepwalker because I am not a big fan of books where the main characters are on the run through the book. Boy was I wrong about this one. This book will keep you on your toes with suspense from beginning to end.
Micayla (Mike) Lange is a cop spending New Years at her Uncle Nicco’s house, when she wakes up after a nightmare. She is about ready to go back to sleep when she hears an odd noise. When she goes to investigate it, she walks into a crime scene. Jason Davis
It's not that Micayla Lange is afraid of the clinking she hears coming from the first floor of the empty McMansion she's housesitting for her uncle Nicco. She's a cop after all. It's just that finding out that her boyfriend was cheating on her was enough drama for one night. Now she's alone on New Year's Eve, wearing flannel pajamas and wielding a Glock 22 as she zeroes in on the unmistakable source of the sound: Uncle Nicco's private office.

Jason Davis steals things for a living, so unexpected
Ursula Gorman
Sleepwalker by Karen Robards is a great read! Mick is a hard as nails cop that is by the book. Too bad her personal life doesn't mirror her professional life. She is spending New Years Eve alone, house sitting/guarding her "Uncle" Nicco's house, a day earlier than expected...she just broke up with her cheating boyfriend and is starting 'guard duty' early.
Jason had the robbery planned to perfection; what better time to rob a mob boss then when no one was home? Too bad he hadn't planned for an une
