I read a lot of books, and this is one of the best Harlequin books that I have ever read. The story had a serial killer that would torture teen boys before he killed them. The details were gruesome, and turned my stomach. He was one sick man. Every detective, and policeman in the city was working the case, and pulling over time. The book described the long hours very well. Every Wednesday another kid was turning up dead. They had to stop this guy.

Carmen met Robert at her best friend's wedding.

Dead by Wednesday was pretty suspenseful. It was easy to figure out who the bad guy was but we did not know who he was or why he was killing teenage boys. Still it was a suspenseful.

I liked the characters. Especially Carmen. She has raised her brother since he was young. Her job was to help teenage girls. She was a believable.

Now Robert's case I wonder at how fast he changed his ways, falling hard and fast for her. Robert is a cop who is attracted to Carmen for months. Especially when the

In Long’s romantic suspense novel, Detective Robert Hanson is racing the clock in search of a serial killer. When Carmen Jimenez asks for help following some “accidents” that have happened, the detective finds himself struggling to maintain a professional distance between them. Attraction wins out and Robert agrees to protect both Carmen and her brother at all costs against a killer drawing closer.

Fast-paced and action-packed.

Beverly Long has given readers a nice romantic suspense story. It was fast paced; the action occurs over a one week time span, and quite suspenseful. The lead couple definitely had sparks flying between them, and the romance starts quite quickly. It is difficult to balance suspense and romance, but Ms. Long does a good job with the time frame constraints. The suspense and intrigue were well plotted and there were enough twists and turns to keep me reading far too late.

This book got off on a bad start for me because the MCs, as far as romance were concerned, came across like adolescents wading into the dating pool for the first time. Actually, it is like that for the heroine as it's the first time she's finding herself even thinking about a man in a romantic sense in 13 years. While that's fine with me, I'd rather not have my romantic suspense tilting towards the romance especially when most of it involves

I really enjoyed this book. It is a great love story & suspense!! The characters were well thought out & intriguing. You really wanted to get to know them. I really hated for the book to end. I could follow the characters through more books. Plus it was an easy read which meant I could pick it up at anytime n enjoy a chapter or 2. Then continue on watching my grandson. Of course that was while he was napping. I highly recommend this book!!
First of all: Apparently I'm in the minority here about this book.
Second of all: I had only intended to write a short opinion piece... then the ranting started and here we are.

This book wasn’t the worst thing in the world; and to be honest, I thought about cutting it some slack because it wasn’t really as terrible as some of my frustrated mutterings made it seem. But it still wasn’t the best thing in the world either. It was simply your standard, formulaic, carbon-copy romance using a crime thri

Was lucky enough to win a signed copy of "Dead by Wednesday" from Beverly Long in the GoodReads GiveAway Contest.

"Dead by Wednesday" is written in a way to allow for a fast paced, all in one read. There is no dragging in the plot, contestant moving as the story takes place in the time span of one week. Allowing for a whirlwind romance complete with intrigue, danger, and suspense.

I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it.

Unthinkable crimes against teenagers; hart brakes for parents and providers of children. Bad guys get it in the end , and a hospital, a recoverie and a wedding. Add a 100% to that and you get good over evil every time.
