Blaine Adkins was shot in his apartment between the hours of ten and midnight. None of his neighbors heard a sound, none of them saw a thing. All of them are glad he’s gone. There wasn't enough evidence to prosecute when he was alive, but everyone knew Blaine was a killer. Fourteen months before he died, he shot a Pleasant Grove woman in the heart, killing her. And the fac ...more

Good series! I liked the difference in this book. Trevor was good. There were some things left open I wouldn't be surprised if there is another book.

I have to admit that I had a hard time in the beginning because there was nothing about Ty, but I kept reading and the rest of the book MORE than made up for the beginning and put my worries to rest. It was a wonderful read and the ending was awesome. I couldn't put it down.

I have really enjoyed all the books in this series. The characters are engaging and well fleshed out. Since I am familiar with the Salt Lake City area in which they are set and the Mormon culture which impacts the story on occasion, I find them especially interesting. I do think that they have a broader appeal though than just to local residents. The two main characters, Rhea and Kathryn, have a solid, long-lasting friendship which is not all that common among female heroes. Both are self suppor ...more

This review is going to be short and spoiler free because I can't say much about a 5th book in a series without leaving spoilers for earlier books. For those who haven't picked up these books yet I hope you do because I absolutely adore this series.

Unpleasant Grove is the 5th book in The Rhea Jensen Series. You definitely need to read them in order so start at the beginning with City of Angels. They are LDS fiction but not the preachy, cheesy kind of LDS fiction. Rhea is not your typical Mormon

Once again, I devoured a book by Sheralyn. Excellent writing. This ended up being more of a Segway novel than I expected, but it was good for that, even if we still don't know what is going to happen. I guess that's the mark of a good author, making you still read things. I could have done without the pictures of the chess moves, but oh well. I guess she was going for clarity or something. Overall, good book in the series. Still waiting to figure out what happens next.

This is the 5th book in a series and it appears that another must be in the works. They're a lot of fun to read, although they need much better proofreading.

Just as good as her other books, but waiting for the big bang showdown at the end with the fours. Guess that will be in the next book?

So great to be back in Rhea's head. I love this series. The writing, action, suspense and romance are incredible and so very enjoyable.

So Good! I really love Sheralyn Pratt's Rhea Jensen series. I am looking forward to the next book. I actually finished the book a few weeks ago, and just realized I never came on to update my status. So trying to remember everything I wanted to say when I finished it.

Rhea has her own personal conflicts in this book, and finally realizes she doesn't have to do everything on her own. She knows even though she has the threat of the Three (as I think that is what they call them)she has to continue b
Feb 06, 2013 TK rated it it was amazing
Though the beginning was a little slow (probably because it was sans Ty), it soon snagged me and I was very relieved to discover Ty had a prominent part in the story. His witty dialogue just adds sparkle to the book and makes it very hard to put down. Also, Ms. Pratt spends more time on Rhea's weaknesses in this book, to very amusing results. Overall, the same great twists and thrills of every book in this series, yet still managed to strike new territory. Well done! 4.5 stars

I loved this continuation of the Rhea Jensen series. I absolutely love Ty in this book and how relationship with Rhea continues to develop. I could see this being the last book in the series, but I really hope it's not.

Cute, fun little book. My 12 yr old daughter will love this one.

It's unclear how Rhea's life is threatened by "The Four", but it's affected her closest relationships. She calls off her wedding, and then uses an alias to intern for best friend Kay McCoy. Instinct, however, takes over when she is determined to prove Blaine Adkin's innocence. That and Ty's determination will help her recognize what's really important in life.

Good enough that I will read the final book in the series, and probably look into other books by this author, but it's not good enough for me to recommend. The beginning was uninteresting, but it did pick up by the end. It's starting to feel a little too close to fantasy to me by now--almost like a female James Bond.

Rhea Jensen is back and still fighting to live the life she wants, not the one dictated by the group for which she previously worked (albeit unknowingly). Add to that some bumps in the road between Rhea and Ty and a murder that needs solving and you have this adventure filled 5th installment in the Rhea Jensen series.
Dec 22, 2013 Julie rated it really liked it
It was nice seeing this side of Rhea--what she could come up with on her own without the help of The Fours. I liked that Ty stepped up and that they all worked together. Good book, I flew through it! Can't wait for the next one (last one??)

This series is such fun! I love the PI/reporter world (that's so foreign to me) and I love the relationships between the main characters, especially their fierce loyalty to each other. Can't wait for the final book!

Of the series, this is the one I liked the least. The beginning was really slow and I almost didn't want to continue. It got much better by the end but on average it was only 3 stars.

I'm not sure why I love this series so much. A Mormon novel that really isn't what one would expect. Its fun stuff.
