See a Problem?
Preview — Hot Blooded by Lisa Jackson
Hot Blooded (New Orleans #1)
The romance aspect was great as well, not played up as much as the mystery angle, but still good. Although I have some beef with the main characters ability to forgive so...more
This one was just as good as the least one (Without Mercy) I was kinda surprised to see a few names and words that she uses in her writing.(the victims names Edie, is used in a few books, and some of the expressions she puts in her books. But that could just be a Down-Home/Southren thing.)
At 465 pages it also went by surprisingly fast! The plot and storyline was fast paced, fun, and thrilling. I am very happy I gave Mrs. Jackson another chance, because these few books have been...more
The characters weren't that well developed. I didn't really connect with them or "like" them that much. Probably the character I liked most was Detective Bentz.
What I really disliked was whenever the book would switch to the murderer's viewpoint. It just seemed...I don't know...childish? That's not quite it. It just wasn't believable to me. I was left with the feeling that the author...more
According to this author, New Orleans is always crawling with serial killers who have some kind of axe to grind with the Catholic Church. Their chosen victims are all feisty, smart, beautiful, confident women. A bevvy of ruggedly handsome men with salt-and-pepper hair are always waiting to help the feisty, smart beautiful victims. (Funny, I don't remember seeing George Clooney look-alikes on every corner when I visited New...more
So we have Sam, who is a talk show psychologist who has clearly...more
I am surprised to see so many 4 and 5 star reviews though, and here are a few of the things I didn't *love* about the book.
- Despite its length, I never really connected with the main character. I felt pretty indifferent toward her.
- The book introduced a few thin...more
And...mgkin mmg ciri khas seri New Orleans u/ mmberikn epilog yg mnggantung+brlanjut k buku brikutnya.
Btw,gw jd sukaaaa bgt sm Reuben Montoya.Ad buku u/ dia gak ya?
This book was so frustrating. I liked the premise and the author incorporated many characters that could be the killer. It had all the elements for a good murder mystery book. The problem was the execution. The first problem was the protagonist....more
Ty is new neighbor to Sam and a whole lot more. The plot is slow to give up its secrets and I really like that, but it makes writing a review di...more
I’m really glad that this was the first in a series. I really liked the characters, and the setting, and hope to see more of them. (I’m gonna mi...more
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind we've gone too far
And now we meet in an abandoned studio
You hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember the jingles used to go
Entah kenapa malah lagu itu yang terngiang waktu baca buku imi. Rasanya sekarang makin jarang dengerin radio. Bukan karena tv lebih rame, tapi karena alasan klise: ga da waktu. Ke mana waktu berlalu?
Padahal Radio juga punya peranan penting, lho, dalam sejarah Indonesia. Berkat radio, para p...more
Being the first book in the series, it is clear that Lisa Jackson is attempting to balancing both the heroine (Dr. Sam) at the center of the murderous drama as well as the law enforcement characters,...more
I started reading HOT BLOODED, the 1st book in the New Orleans Series that feature Detectives Bentz and Montoya….i love the two characters….so different and so interesting. . I read the book in one go….i was unable to put it down until I finished reading the last page.
The story is set in New Orleans……perfect city for the story about Dr Samantha L...more
Dr. Samantha Leeds may be a rising radio talk show therapist but she's earned her share of enemies. Years ago, while working in Houston, she failed to notice a teen girl's desperate cries for help that ended in her apparent suicide. The family blamed her for the death. Now Dr. Leeds is back on the air in New Orleans and suddenly she's receiving threatening phone calls from a psychopath who is killing prostitutes. What could their deaths possibly have to do with a dead girl from Samantha's past?...more
I like to read a good thriller, but this one left me a bit disappointed.
The thriller part of is was okay: page-turning in the beginning. The middle part was a bit dready: a lot of repetitions of what happened in the past to Annie and Sam's role in that. I think that could have been lessened.
And the end was, imho not so spectacular. A bit predicatable, just like the thriller-series / crime series I watch on TV: cavalry arrives just in time, the things going on ar...more
In 1983, Jackson's first novel, A Twist of Fate, was published by Silhouette Books. Currently, Jackson writes contemporary romantic suspense novels for Kensington Books and medieval romantic suspense novels for Onyx Books. Her books regul...more
