Egads...if I were kidnapped by a guy that I knew was a murderer, and that his main goal was to kill me again, I don't think I'd be having dinner with him (while I am his captive) or having polite nightly tête-à-têtes. Or having discussions with him about how he's developing romantic feelings about me.

There was absolutely no sense of urgency in this book. No sense of "I must escape now! I must get away from these psychos while I can, at any cost." While our intrepid little heroine, Abby, does man

A couple of days ago I finished my third book for this year in English without using a dictionary.

It's the sequel to my last book that I read. It's getting more thrilling, and in this book the murder's past became apparent. All mysteries related to the first book and second book started linking.
Although all mysteries seemed to be solved in this book, some new mysteries came up.

I'm looking forward to the forth book, fifth book and sixth book.

They get better and better. I read most of this while on the recumbent bike at the gym. I would have read longer but a lady was giving me the evil eye to get off the bike... or perhaps it was a ghost. Hmmm

I can't believe there's going to be a book 4! It's so hard to wait!

44 book 3

After the ending of book 2 Abby wakes up to find herself kidnapped by Dr Nathaniel Mortimer, someone who she thought was being apprehended by his brother Ben.
she is being held prisoner on an island with Nathaniel, as he wants to experiment in her to see why his serum worked on her and her alone when it brought her back to life.

this was good to get the reason behind why Nathanial had turned out like he had. it was a bit slow to start with but picked up with that ending.
I am not sure what
Payton (Payton's Book Thoughts)
My Overall Thoughts

Sinclair does a really great job of recapping what has happened in other books without making it seem like a summary. Which is really nice because I tend to read these books really far apart from each other, so the refresher helps a lot. The whole book Abby was in an extremely weird and unsettling situation. In fact, I found some parts of the book a little hard to believe. But in spite of that, the story line completely reeled me in. It was a short (197 pages) and good read– j

After reading the first two, I anxiously awaited the release of Book 3. I really enjoyed the first two books and was so disappointed in this third. The first 80% of the book dragged on and on. The pace and the plot picked up the last 20% of the book, but the plot was weak and the newer characters were underdeveloped. I cared about the characters introduced in the first two books, but, with the exception of Abby, they were barely present. The love Dr. Mortimor has for Abby is unbelievable. ...more

This book was ok. After the dull and dreary second book, I had taken a hiatus from reading the series. I had read positive reviews for the fourth book and figured that since I wanted to read it, I should probably read the third book that I had been dreading.

The book was good and simply because it had little to do with her personal romantic relationships. There was excitement and a little desperation felt as Abby tried to figure out a way to get off of the island. I wasn't too thrilled that the p

I honestly was thinking a one star or maybe two for this one until the very end. I really haven't been impressed by these and I hate that. I don't know if it is me or the writing or the story or what but it just isn't jiving with me. Honestly I was almost on board until the dinner with my captor was a bit much and then the book just slugged on from there. The ending satisfied me enough though that I am really thinking of calling this my ending and leaving it at that..I have ...more

For a book series about a girl who sees ghosts and has to deal with being kidnapped by a doctor who wants to kill her, there doesn't seem to be a lot of urgency. I felt like I was being told that scary things were happening, but I didn't feel the scary things. I'm also not sure how I feel about the announcement that there will be a 4th book, especially since I mostly feel perfectly satisfied about how the third one ended. But who knows...I'll probably read it anyway because I'm a sucker like ...more

I had an idea of what was going to happen in this book, but I was very surprised by the characters. The author has a way of introducing characters where you don't know immediately what their importance in the book will be. I like that. I like not knowing what is going to happen. I have read books like this before that are very predictable. I am almost finished with book four in this series and the author never fails to surprise me.

I think this was the most fascinating of the three so far. I really liked getting into Nathaniel's history more, but I was annoyed a bit by the end (view spoiler)

Expected, well what I got the last two books. What I got was different in a good way. Lots of things going on building, building to an HEA? What? You through me for a loop Jooles and I think I like that. I sure hope Abby finds a way to repay Simon, won't say for what. Starting #4 shortly. Loving this series. Never know what this author will do next.

This one was pretty intense. Kidnapped by a madman, Abby has to do what she can to make it out alive. With some ghostly (and corporeal) help, she gets where she needs to be. These books are such quick reads, I've read the first three in the last day and a half. I'm hooked!

Really good. I loved the crazy affection that Nathaniel developed for Abby. I really liked the Emma twist. Simon was an inspiration to learn how to make risotto. I just really enjoyed this one. It was like cuddling with a warm blanket. It just made me feel good even with all the angst.

I enjoy the 44 series novellas. Books are short, center around Abby, who was dead for 44 min due to a cold water drowning and ends up surviving. Crazy Dr Nate Mortimer claims responsibility and kidnaps her to seek out answers as to how his serum worked.

This was intense and exciting like the first one.

I really wish these stories were longer but they're fabulous quick reads.

This one wasn't as interesting as the others. A bit dull and predictable but I find the characters compelling enough to want to read the next one.

This seemed like a filler story line. kind of slow and predictable. would have liked to see more action and mystery or something. still can't wait to read the next one.

I liked the series, but I don't know if I'll continue with book 4. This book just didn't leave me wanting more. I did enjoy the fact that they are very quick reads. I finished this in 2 hours.
