"Brooke Yeager's childhood ended the night she crept downstairs to find her beautiful, gentle mother, Anne, lying in a pool of blood. Standing above Anne's shattered body, a gun aimed right at the terrified little girl, was Brooke's stepfather, Zachary Tavell. Luck saved Brooke that night, and in the years since, she's managed to build a good life in Charleston, West Virginia, secure in the knowledge that Zach is behind bars. Until the night another woman is murdered--a woman who looks

I love this author. I must say the closer I got to the ending the easier it was to figure out who the killer was. This book didn't lead me on in the wrong direction as well as some of her books have. It was still a good book.

This was actually a hardback large print edition, great to read while waiting for my eyes to dialate at the Eye Docs, and to read afterwards while they returned to normal. Anyway, about the book: A brief overall plotline - 11 year old girls sees her mother lying shot with her stepfather standing with a gun in his hand. Stepfather convicted and sent prison. Years later, Girl is a realestate agent and is showing a house with a co-worker. Client a no show and as they leave shots ringout. Co-worker ...more

I have mixed feelings about this book. Parts of it seemed to drag out and not add anything to the book. How many people can get killed around 1 woman and she NOT be a suspect? No, really? Then parts of it seemed rushed. As if Carlene was tired of writing. Overall it was a good book.

summary: while a young kid, the main character finds her step dad standing over her dead mom, holding a gun at her. Years later step dad is in prison and she's living her life. Until suddenly bad things start to happe

an improvement on the romance side of things - the love interest is not a (view spoiler)... that being said, this book has more romance in it, which i find it refreshing after the other books. it does make the story not as "dry" as the others.
well, well, finally, i managed to correctly guess who the killer was for this round! i guess i am now a better detective after reading a few of her books this weekend.

Typical romance. Focused more on what the character was wearing than what they were feeling. Still ok for a quick read.

Brooke Yeager was very Mary Sue-ish in the plot, and so following her story became less engaging for me as the pages progressed. I was simply liking the protagonist less and less. The red herring was also VERY obvious, that around three-fourths of the series, I have already guessed the culprit. >:(

New author for me in the romantic suspense genre... like her. Kind of saw the end coming on this one but at least there were enough twists, turns and well developed characters to keep it moving and interesed.
Jan 12, 2010 Peacegal rated it it was ok
I read it for my book discussion group. Pretty much your average ultra-mainstream murder mystery. The hackneyed dialogue has made laugh out loud a few times. Ah well. There are worse things to slog through I guess.

Shelves: donne, americana, ebook
lettura prevedibile, in cui l'assassino si capisce a metà libro. va bene per una giornata in spiaggia, quando le capacità di concentrazione sono vicine allo zero.
Sep 20, 2012 Suzanne rated it liked it
I like my mysteries a little faster paced that this one. It is slow going in the middle and the pace picks up in the end. This is why this book gets 3 stars.
