You know you have to read book one, book two then book three. Love Carla books. Mystery, romance and Ireland. Always a great combination!

First, this is not a stand alone book. It must be read as the 3rd book in the series following The Widow and The Angel. If you read it without having read the first 2, you will not understand the characters and will most likely be very lost. The book is very weak on its own.

This book picks up where The Angel ended. Norman Estabrook, a billionaire with a need for danger has been arrested. He threatened the lives of those who betrayed him and put him in this predicament--including Simon Cahill, th

This is the 3rd book in the series. You need to read The Widow and The Angel first. If you read it without having read the others, you will be lost and not have a full understanding of the characters. I liked this one the best of the three. It had a real good suspense plot and a passable romance.

One thing I have noticed about Carla Neggers work is that she makes her characters feel guilt for things they had nothing whatsoever do with. Case in point in The Mist - Abigail, kidnapped, bound, on a b

Ok I think I'm done with Neggers for awhile. I'm just not a fan of the FBI series she is currently developing. There is divided focus in each installment between past characters and current characters and neither set are provided any growth or dimension, as there are just too many characters floating around. Relationships are short-changed and less developed, if developed at all, so you feel no connection to their resolutions, or HEA as the case may be. There is too much going on in too many dif ...more

What a good story! A thriller with a tiny bit of Irish fairy lore thrown in for good measure. The characters came alive for me in this intriguing story of domestic and international spies, murder, assumed betrayal, a megalomaniac thrill seeker with a grudge, assassination plots and a kidnapping with several romances to make things more interesting. This is the first book (#3) I've read in this series but while several things are referenced which happened in the past, Neggers does a great job at ...more

536 LP I hadn't read a Neggers before and it was obvious at the beginning of the one where many characters were introduced that had a past history together. It took awhile to get into the story which was based on billionaire Norman Estabrook's release from jail and his plan for revenge against people from the Boston Police Force and the FBI head and others. I am sure a previous book set the background for this and a bit of the reason for his being in jail. Bombings attacks in Boston and Ireland ...more

In Carla Neggers's the Mist, the third installment in the Boston Police/FBI romantic suspense/thriller series, this would leave you at the edge of your seat. It all started when Lizzie Rush alerted her friends in Boston about a bomb threat from Ireland. That's when it took off, when it ruptured at two select places. Back in Ireland, Lizzie's trekking the Beara Bay as someone wanted to attack her with a knife. That's when she met Lord Will Davenport, a sexy British spy who came to her aid, and se ...more

If you are going to read this series you need to read all the books close together. The story lines, as well as the time lines all cross over. This story was supposed to be about Lizzie Rush and Will Davenport. Its suppose to be a romantic thriller, but you really do not get to delve into their story. You are still enmeshed in Abigail's and Keira's stories from the first two books. This is all well and good, but I fell almost everything that happened could have happened in the other story.

The Mist by Carla Neggers is an exceptional book. I really like this author and this is one of her better books. I love her books because you can read them in the series, or as a stand alone. I would recommend reading the fulls series, but if it is not available, you will be just fine. Lizzie Rush is a average individual who helps run a chain of hotels that her family owns. Unfortunately she falls in with the wrong person, Norman Estabrook. She is invited to parties and at one of these parties s ...more

This is to remind me never to read another Carla Neggers book...what can I say, I was traveling and I was desperate. Okay so it's the third book in a series and I haven't read the other two. That's no excuse for writing sentences like, "Simon, a search-and-rescue expert himself, had volunteered for Fast Rescue eighteen months ago after he and Owen had become friends through John March. Owen knew March because of their ties to Maine, where Owen had discovered the body of March's son-in-law, Chris ...more

This book cannot be read on its own. There are too many referrals to things that happen in the first two of the series. Keeping that in mind, this book is fast paced for the most part. The crime lord/billionaire thrill-seeker arrested in book two turns informant and escapes jail time. Now he is after the FBI informant, FBI Director and the anonymous informant that got him arrested. Lizzie Rush is that informant and intent on keeping herself anonymous. Will Davenport is the Brit agent with a myst ...more

I did not finish this book. The beginning was full of introductions of past characters and their relationships to each other. A half page about this person, before segueing on to a half page of summary about their uncle, or nephew, before moving on to the uncle/nephew/whoever's sister-in-law. I slogged on, despite getting all these people confused because they weren't a big part of the plot that was going on.

Then Lizzie is scared of some bad guy who might be following her, but she decides to ca

Misleading title. Hardly any time in Ireland, and hardly any mist. It was obvious 2 pages in to the book that this was the middle of a series. I kept reading anyway, but there were so many characters. She did give highlights of their backstory, but most of them didn't really factor into this story, and I didn't need to keep hearing about them. Was it a mystery? Not really, because you knew right from the start who the bad guy was. Was it a thriller? Not particularly, cause the bad guy was comple ...more

I reviewed the first two books in this series and enjoyed them, but I would not recommend this one unless you have read them. I’m sure that it is intended as a stand-alone novel, but there is a large cast of characters and they all have their own storylines and histories. Even I had to pause once or twice to remember who was who and I’ d read the first two books! That is a part of my biggest complaint with the book. It was supposed to be Will and Lizzie’s story, but they did not seem like the fo ...more

I read this one a long time ago and decided to listen to it on audio. This is the third book in a series and finishes out a trilogy within that series. Because of that, there was a lot going on as the author wrapped up several story lines. This made for some slow going, especially in the beginning. Also, the narration left a lot to be desired in my opinion. There were so many people, and trying to get all the different characters, it was difficult to distinguish who was talking at many points du ...more

When I first started reading this book I was grumpy that I didn't have the prior book (The Angel) as they kept referring to the adventures in it. But I quickly got over that as she introduced the characters and I found myself involved in the book and couldn't wait to see what happened next. It is a good story with spies and cops and drama and adventure and of course a little romance and flirtation. I wish I had the next book but I am definitely not buying any new books until I finish the 300+ I ...more

International spies, M16, FBI agents, Boston PD, confidential informants, etc., etc., etc. - all engaged in a cat and mouse game with a megalomaniac bent on revenge. From Ireland to Boston to Las Vegas to Maine; kidnappings, murder, bombings and family mysteries - all play a role in the unfolding of this suspenseful tale. Extremely well written, but a little difficult to keep all the players straight and to figure out who was on which side. Nevertheless, I couldn't put this book down in anticipa ...more

This was a fairly quick read, with some characters that appear to be a continuation in a series. This is a new author for me, and I will definitely read some of her prior books.

Part of The Mist is set in Maine, which naturally interests me, but is set in Ireland and Boston as well. It was a light, easy read, and I'm looking forward to following up on some of the past exploits of her characters.

I really liked the story line and the characters. However, I was disappointed with the relationship between the two main characters, Lizzie & Will. They actually seemed more like secondary characters than main characters. By the end they had fallen in love, but throughout most of the book they didn't even spend that much time together. There was no chemistry and no development of the relationship.

Pretty good story. Fast paced. Apparently it is not the first in a series, and i read out of order. The story, however, still flowed, and was a pretty good read. I am curious to read the others to learn more about the characters, maybe see if i like them? With so many in one book, it is hard to fall in love with a character. All of the ones in this I feel meh about. Maybe that will change with another book?

Love this book!!
But.... it says that it can be read as a stand-alone, it cannot!!!! You need to at least read the first book because many of the characters are introduced in it (you can skip the second book and still make sense of this one though)
I love the legends and complicated plot that jumps between several different character's (which I normally dislike but this is seamless!) so I would HIGHLY recommend the series (in order if possible)

Great book. I picked up my copy at a local thrift store. Based on the cover and the reviews on the inside pages I knew it would be well worth the 10 cent price tag. After reading it I feel like mailing my copy to universal pictures (or some other film company) to turn it into a movie. It was such a great book. As with most books you don't get into it until after the first or second chapter, but this book kept me up until the wee hours of the morning reading it.

New characters added to the continuing saga of the FBI/BPD
Lizzie Rush is a member of the family that owns exclusive hotels. She also became involved a billionaire Norman Estabrook who carries a grudge against John March, the director of the FBI and the father of Abigail March Browning.

This is book 3, be sure and read book 1 The Widow, and book 2, The Angel, otherwise you'll spend a lot of time trying to figure out who is related to whom.

it was hard for me to get comfortable with this book. i'm assuming a lot of these characters are repeats for negger's books but this is my second i've read of hers and i found their relationships very overwhelming because there was so much to take in.. but once i got past that, it was pretty good and i enjoyed it.
