A serial killer is in Grizzly Falls, Montana, shooting the tires of vehicles containing one lone occupant, a woman, his latest victim. He brings them to his ‘hide-out’, lets them recuperate somewhat, makes them dependant on him to the point of ‘wanting’ him. He takes them out, completely naked in the middle of winter, ties them to trees and leaves them there to die of exposure, leaving behind a star carved into the trees above their heads and a cryptic note using the ini...more
I was trying to decide which book would be my next one to listen to as I had picked up more than one from the library, so I visited Amazon to read t...more
While I was a bit surprised at thinking of possibilities pages, and sometimes chapters, before the police in the book did, that did not take away from this being a very satisfying read.
Jackson does a fine job of keeping the reader second-guessing any conclusions s/he tries to make about wha...more
All in all, I really did NOT like this book. It seemed like one long prologue.
Now, Jillian Rivers, has been in an accident after someone shot her tire out - she is injured and in an isolated cabin wit...more
I read it almost half way through and I just couldn't go any further.
Ringkasan ceritanya menarik, sehingga saya tertarik untuk membelinya.
Namun setelah membaca beberapa bab awal, saya merasa sedikit terpaksa untuk meneruskannya hanya karena saya ingin menyelesaikannya.
Dan pada bab ke-8 saya sudah tak sanggup lagi, perkembangan ceritanya terlalu lambat karena ringkasannya sudah menceritakan hampir keseluruhan inti ceritanya.
Jadi bab-bab didalamnya hanya m...more
I am going to get a tally sheet and start keeping track of each time the following terms are used by fictional cops to let you know they are serious:

It's not just Jackson. Other Lifetime novel writers use the same lingo. I think it's supposed to make the cops seem tough or realistic....more
Jillian Rivers is drawn to Missoula, Montana, after receiving photographs of her first husband, who disappeared on a hiking expedition and was presumed dead.

There are numerous twists and turns and right when you think you have everything figured out, Lisa Jackson throws you for a loop and switches everything up until you're left clueless and wondering once again.
This book is so suspenseful and carefully...more
What I don't like is the lack of editing/proofreading and the fact that errors are made which confuse the reader, the main one being the description of Regan's daughter. On one page, Bianca is described as being dark haired, blue eyed and Mediterranean looking like her father. Flip a few pages and she is described as red haired green eyed like...more
Set in the cold winter weather of the desolate mountains of Montana, a serial killer is setting up car accidents for women driving in secluded roads and leaving them to die tied up to trees.
Jillian Rivers narrowly manages to escape the killer when she is rescued by Zane McGregor, a mysterious loner and she feels a growing attra...more
The worst part of this book was the developing romance between two characters. I was actually cringing at the female character observing "He was so close, so familiar, so male." It was as if a Harleq...more
Romantic suspense is not my most favorite romance genre, so I was leery about picking up this book. However, Ms. Jackson is RRRC's September's featured author, so I read this book to complete a challenge.
First thing that impressed me when I read this book is her prose. I think she has a beautiful way of expressing herself, and the words just flow on the paper. There is enough tension to keep me reading, and I did finish the book in a short time. My only compla...more
In Montana ist es normaler Weise recht ruhig, doch seit dort ein Serienmörder sein Unwesen treibt, haben die Detective Regan Pescoli und Selena Alvarez alle Hände voll zu tun.
Sie nennen ihn den Stern-Mörder: Er lauert seinen weiblichen Opfern bei einsamen Bergstraßen auf und schießt auf deren Autoreifen, um einen Unfall zu verursachen. Dann verschleppt er die schwerverletzten Frauen und behält...more
2.8 stars from The Lake Witch
Wow.. I love Lisa Jackson but did not feel this book was on par with say the New Orleans series (which I absolutely loved and would recommend to anyone).
About 150 pages into the book, I still felt lost and that the book hadn't yet set me up for the other 260ish pages. Yes, I was engrossed in the story but it had not grabbed me yet nor had the characters been seen as anything but stressed.
I did love the 2 plots in 1 but only because I had the 2nd book at my finger t...more
