For The Love Of Jazz was a fairly good RS by Shiloh Walker--it had loads of potential but didn't quite live up to it for me--readers expecting another Fragile or Broken may be disappointed.

This was the story of tall, dark, and hunky, recent widower Jasper "Jazz" McNeil. Sixteen years ago, when he was 18, Jazz was accused of driving drunk and causing an accident that killed his best friend Alex Kincaid. Alex was like a brother to him, and his father Dr. Desmond Kincaid took Alex into the family a

If you like reunion stories and stories about vindication, then "For the Love of Jazz" by Shiloh Walker will thrill you. She's one of those authors that I can't help but read and enjoy. Even when I think I know where the plot is going, there's always a twist that surprises me. And WOW can this author writes some seriously smoking love scenes.

Jazz has returned to the small town where he grew up looking for answers. When he left over ten years ago, he was accused of accidentally killing the town's

I felt that the story was a good one. Other reviewers have touched upon the story line and the interactions between Jazz and Annie. I feel that this was really a 3.5 star story. When we see Jazz as an adult it is with his daughter. This was great! The daughter, Mariah, is cute and precocious. Halfway through the book she gets dumped at a sitter and we don't really see her anymore until she is threatened and her babysitter killed. I felt that as Annie is a pediatrician her developing a relationsh ...more

This is my monthly open-a-drawer-and-see-what-you-find read. Ever since I read and reviewed Ms. Walker’s The Missing, I’ve wanted to read something else by her, so when I pulled this book out of the drawer, I put all the others that came before it back for another day. I have to let you know, though, my copy of this book is from 2004. It has since been republished by Samhain and it has been revised and expanded, according to their website. ‘Course, didn’t know that until just now, but I’m assumi ...more

The story was just all over the place. And not as hot as it could have been.

It was OK.

I thought this book started out with a great deal of promise and went downhill from there. By the end, I was just plain bored, and I didn't really care who the killer was. The romance was tepid and there was very little of it, especially after the midpoint of the book. If not for the beginning, which I enjoyed, I would have given this 1 star. I usually love Shiloh Walker's books, but this one was just a major miss for me.

I have both the old and new versions of this story. Would be interested in the opinion of any who has read BOTH VERSIONS.

Not much angst for such a emotional premise. This was fine but no big deal
