This Suspense novel has an interesting plot. There is a serial killer, who leaves clues each day and on The Seventh Day he kills his Target. As one reads through this novel, you find yourself wondering when the next clue will appear. And will the Hero & Heroine solve the case before the killer strikes again. The story had me guessing for a while. While I was able to figure out who the killer was early in the story, It did not take way from this being a good read.The author did a good job of...more

THE SEVEN-DAY TARGET by Natalie Charles is a Harlequin Romantic Suspense releasing in April 2013.

Elizabeth Andrews had broken off her relationship with Nick and had tried to move on. Yet here he was telling her that she was the target of a serial killer.

Could she accept his help now? After all she had secrets she wanted hidden from Nick. And the chemistry between them still sizzled. The attraction was still there.

THE SEVEN-DAY TARGET’s premise is exciting and the story keeps you involved from t...more

I really enjoyed this book. It had action, suspense, and romance. Libby and Nick was engaged to get married a few years ago. Libby thought it would be better to let Nick go so he could have the life he deserved. She never told him Why. 3 years later, Libby is a target of a serial killer, and Nick comes back to protect her. He is still carrying around the hurt. Libby can’t bear to tell him why, or that she still loves him. When both Nick, and Libby are put into a life or death situation they both...more

Wow! Loved every page!

This is the first Harlequin Romantic Suspense I have read and I have to say DO NOT read it curled up on the couch by yourself in the dark... I was continuously peeking up at every little creak I heard, The Seven-Day Target was THAT good!!!

FBI Special Agent Nick has returned to 'lil 'ole Arbor Falls, his hometown and unfortunately hometown of his one and only true love, Libby. His ex police partner has found a body and wants to talk to Nick. Before he can blink Nick is force...more

Good book with lots of suspense. I ended up liking both Nick and Libby, though I had problems with Libby at first. Nick has returned to his hometown to attend the funeral of Libby's father. He has no plans to see or speak to her. But when his former partner on the police force called to tell him that Libby is the target of a deadly stalker, Nick decides to stick around to protect her.

I preferred Nick to Libby. He came to town to pay his respects to Libby's father, even though they had never got...more

Je n’ai pas aimé ce livre. Beaucoup de choses m’ont déplu : tout d’abord l’héroïne. Complètement rigide, elle aime en plus diriger son monde, prenant des décisions sans penser à la réaction de ceux qui l’entourent. La pire étant la raison qui a causé la séparation des héros, une raison qu’elle a sciemment cachée inutilement. Ensuite, le héros qui a un mauvais comportement face à son ancien équipier et ami. Je ne l’ai jamais vu s’excuser. Dommage ! Et cerise sur le gâteau, une scène hot qui arriv...more

What a fabulous, romantic suspense book!

I can see why Natalie Charles won the 2011 Harlequin Mills and Boon New Voices competition. Natalie has an engaging voice and I was drawn into the lives of these likeable characters right away. I was anxious to find out why Libby broke up with Nick and wanted to see them together. I'm a sucker for a hero who's a self-made success. Nick Foster is everything you want in a hero, and I loved that he wanted to protect her, even though they weren't together anym...more

This review was written by my teen daughter under "Maria's Teen Scene" on LazyDay.Ca

Ehhoo (DAMN IT MARIA! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?! THIS IS HOW YOU START YOUR FIRST EVER POST?! God damn it you are lucky you are upstairs!
Love Fatman)

The breakdown

About a girl (Libby) and a guy (Nick, who is a special agent).
She dumps him because she can’t have babies.
He comes back to save her from a murderer.
They fall in love again.

The characters were well constructed and I enjoyed how most of their thoughts were in...more

I love suspense books as much as romance, and this book was a perfect blend of the two. I also have a particular interest in reunion stories, and this was a beautifully written book about second chances.

Libby and Nick are reunited when Nick is asked to protect her from a serial killer who sends six clues over six days and kills on the seventh. Forced to spend time together, Nick and Libby's history is slowly brought to light, revealing a painful and touching secret that ultimately tore them apa...more

Loved the suspense throughout the book

I won this book in a give away so I thought I'd give it a shot. I read the author's mini bio before starting the book and was intrigued. As a former prosecutor myself, I often find books involving legal proceedings to be too far fetched to enjoy so I was eager to read this since the author is an attorney also. The book was great, I finished it in a day and enjoyed the story (which is heavily recapped by others so I won't bother). I think I might have found a new favorite genre and look forward t...more

It was a very well written book. I liked the characters for the most part. The story was pretty solid. The only complaint is that for me anyways I figured out who was involved 2/3 of the way thru. All in all, a good book by a good author. I got this book free from good reads.
Ryan Mckeen
My wife wrote this book. I obviously have a bias. I loved this book. It is a page turner. Natalie manages to keep the suspense alive from start to finish. The result is a very enjoyable read. I hope you read this book. I hope you enjoy it is much as I did.
