Tami Hoag is my favorite mystery author. Her characters are very complex, and the places that she writes about are incredibly realistic. Unlike many mystery novelists, Tami Hoag develops new characters with each book. I think that this was the only "series" that she's done. These two books, "Night Sins" and "Guilty as Sin," were the very first two books of her's that I stumbled across. A line of Tami Hoag novels now fills my bookshelf. I'm hooked.
Night Sins was my first Tami Hoag book and I could not put it down it held me captive and one of very few books that I have read that had me stumped on who was the bad guy. I couldn't wait till the second book came out.
I Loved Guilty as Sin as much as Night Sins. These two books was my beginning of a long list of Tami Hoag books I have read. She is a Great Author
I loved both books and the characters!! It was worth the read/listen! I loved how Night Sins walked right into Guilty As Sin and really enjoyed both book because of it. Tami Hoag did a great job. If you like a great mystery suspense with a little romance throw in I highly recommend these two book to you!! :)

These stories were very good. I am getting back into reading mysteries. They are hard to put down once you start but its a very good book. I appreciate Desiree putting it on her books that she read. I will read more books by tami hoag in the future.
My first time reading Tami Hoag. I found both books interesting, however I seemed to favor Night Sins over Guilty. I would still recommend both books though.
This series was one of the first romantic mysteries I ever read. She got me hooked one reading again after a long abstance.
This book dragged on and on... couldn't wait for it to end.. then found out there was a sequel. Keep the sequel!

Loved both books! Couldn't put the book down, albeit, as a double book it was quite a pain to tote around.
Good story and characters. Not predictable...I thought I had it figured out, but I was so wrong.
I want more!!!!

I picked this up thinking it's a gritty crime novel but it ended up being predictably lame. Instead of solving the crime, the lead investigators fall for each other. If I wanted to read a harlequin romance I would have! There were flashes of clever lines enuf to tease me on to the end. But I won't be reading the connecting book #2

Weird book. A couple people had recommended Tami Hoag to me, it meshed with the genre I like to read, so I gave this one a whirl.

Beginning hit close to home, as the story centers around the abduction of an 8 year old boy (I got one of those). Middle of the book drags. Wanted to throw in the towel on reading this one, it kept me just engaged enough to keep going, and the last 20% was better than I thought it would be, even though it did drag. Bad sign when you're skimming though the final pages j
I read these on my Kindle and the stories were well thought out and there was a lot of suspense. While I wouldn't call these challenging, they make a great beach read and they kept my attention. The characters are interesting, and, while some pieces are a bit trite, overall, I enjoyed the stories very much.
Listened to this on audio book and did enjoy it. Many times things where explained in way to much detail leaving me to feel frustrated and wanting it to get the point! Liked the story line and did have unexpected twists and turns. 3.5/5
In a nutshell - I couldn't put these two books down! Great, thrilling whodunit. I won't spoil the plot for you. In fact, I knew nothing about the plot except for what is on the cover and the words "New York Times Bestseller".
Deborah Robb
Good book. Kept me guessing til the end as to who had kidnapped a little boy and killed a second boy. The police have arrested a neighbor of the little boy that was kidnapped but have they arrested the right guy?
Bethany Hughes
When I first read I had no idea Night Sins was part 1! I was very annoyed when I got to its ending and found out. But was able to quickly obtain the next book. A great two series "book."
Started reading a few weeks ago, very good books. Didn't want to put down but work got in the way.
Did not like at all really! Took forever to get into, too much predictable romance
Don O'goodreader
Night Sins opens with Hannah Garrison, head ER doctor, staying late to (unsuccessfully) treat the victims of an car accident and her husband Paul Kirkwood ignoring his phone while with his mistress. If you are a Tami Hoag reader, you know what to expect: their Cub Scout son, Josh, was abducted. Welcome to a world of guilt and recrimination.

This is a great book for reading on the airplane, especially a long one like I just took between California and South Africa.
Ok the ending of these books were hot, fast paced action packed,just the omg factor..the begining of the book seemed like it was going to be great.. About 90 pages in already some what invested in the book it seemed like Tammy Hoag was just page filling.. way to much babble in these books. If she had stuck to the story at hand I would of given these books the 5 stars. I cant stand a Author that goes into killer detail about every little thing.This was the first book that I had read from her and ...more
I read the first book not knowing there were 2, I was disappointed the first didnt finish the story so I was obligated to get the second and both drug on so much I felt they could have been cut down to one book.
Note to self: don't bother with any of Hoag's other novels. Classic New York Times best seller bullshit. Good plot but too predictable and too many absurdities. Classic chick stuff including the steamy scenes. And what is Hoag's obsession with noses? It would be a fun statistic to know how many nose descriptions and references were made in this book. Also, she needs a new editor who is not being paid by the number of words in the book but rather by true interesting content and sentence structure ...more

I liked the two books, but I have to say that I felt that perhaps it as all a bit long winded. The two books combined weigh in at nearly 1200 pages. It was well written, but there seemed to be a decent amount of filler scenes.

Also, is everyone in this book carrying a suitcase full of emotional baggage. Never seen an assembly of so many damaged, baggage carrying characters.

This book(s) was ok. I've read another two book set by this author and they were pretty similar. Sometimes it felt like the author was trying to make everyone a suspect to make it harder to tell who actually did it, but the problem with that is it felt like that's what she was doing. Overall not bad, but probably not something I'd recommend to anyone else.
I love Tami Hoag! I do have to say that I like Night Sins alot more than Guilty as Sin. Night Sins pulled me in from the first page and I could not put the book down. I felt like Guilty as Sin was not as fast passed and thrilling as the first book but still enjoyed it.

I didn't know the first book had a sequel, so after getting through the 500 plus page first novel, I was left saying, 'Whaaaa?'
Above average suspense thriller. By the end of the second book though, I was only reading it to find out 'who done it.'
I enjoyed this book. I like a good mystery. Lots of things going on in this story. Very involved. You find yourself getting angry, sad and fearful all at once. A gripping suspense about a missing child that leads to the death of another.
