See No Evil (Evil #2)
A troubled teenage girl has been charged with the grisly murder of her stepfather. The evidence is damning: Emily was found alone at the scene with blood on her hands, and an incriminating e-mail she wrote outlines a murder plot identical to the method of the brutal slaying. But deputy district attorney Julia Chandler believes her niec ...more
I didn't enjoy it as much as Speak No Evil.
It took me a little while to get into this one and get the characters straight in my head. I had to keep flipping back to see who was whom.
We are told how the group were all brought together and why so many people had died, but for me it wasn't enough to really explain why they did what they did.
The ending left me feeling flat.
The "Evil" series is very bloody, brutal and has a rather high body count.
Nonetheless I think these are the best books so far from Allison Brennan.
A few sex-scenes, a bit of romance, but I consider the last sex-scene as too long, and boring, all where non-kinky and while not distracting, where not very interesting, and rather as pause from all the sadistic killing, a necessary break.
Although the ending is again predictable, and in ...more

Really enjoyed this book, Allison Brennan is a terrific writer with a mind that I just love.
We meet another Kincaid family member in this book - a very likable guy. A very hot scene (Kjen would love it), and a twisting tale with a red herring thrown in.
2 thumbs up and 5 stars - great read!
Allison Brennan: 5.00:
A favorite author. Like her writing style, her voice, the way she weaves romance into her gripping suspense stories.

Four sentences in this book struck a very personal chord, thus it became a very engrossing, moving, heart-felt story.

Imagine being accused for a crime that you didn’t commit. A crime so violent and disgusting, it made you feel sick to your stomach. That’s what’s happened to Emily Chandler. She is being accused of a murder that she did not do. All the evidence points to her, plus the fact that she has motive makes her all the guiltier.
My first thought when I read this book was, “How am I ever going to solve this mystery befo ...more
The characters are genuine, and all their emotions, no matter how bottled up, you feel them. The way Brennan puts you in the mind of the killer has its own creepy effect, and it works well. The action is suspenseful, the plot works out very well. That's twice now where I thought I knew 'whodunnit', but ended up wrong - way wrong - twice, LOL!
I like the Kincaid family. No matter the crap this family gets into, no matter how they fight with each ...more

Well, I didn't like this one as much as the previous four books of hers that I have read. I know that it is romantic suspense, but there was so much more romance focused on this one than in the others, and the sex scenes were a bit full on for my liking. This is a suspense book! There was one part where I skipped about six pages as it was entirely about sex!
The villans in this book were more sex orientated as well. All a bi ...more
Julia and Connor have a bad history, but that doesn't stop her from calling her when her niece, Emily, is found in the same house with her murdered stepfather. The crime was nasty and brutal - the perp cut off his penis and stuffed it in his mouth, chocking him. Emily had a very good reason to ...more
