There's a reason why I like Lisa Jackson. The woman sure knows how to write a damn good story!

Lots of characters as individual as possible. Some you like, some you can really despise.

I liked the setting as well. The country is one setting that I love when filled with intrigue, suspense and suspicious, devious characters.

Cassidy struck me as a smart, headstrong young woman, at the beginning, and the same later. Brig had a good head on his shoulders. Chase, full of ambition, wanting nothing but re
This story was disappointing. The characters were annoying--no one said what they should have said. The dialogue was forced and unbelievable. The twists were easily predictable--I figured both out well before I was supposed to. And again with the gratuitous sex scenes that added nothing to the relationships or storyline. The incestuous undercurrent in the plot was gross.

This is the second book I have read by this author. I felt the same for the first one as I did this one so I just think this w
I just don't know about this book. It started out really good. Brig sounded really hot and Cass was so sweet with her crush on him. I can't really go any further without spoilers, so..

When Angie Buchanan finds herself pregnant with her brother's child she schemes to seduce local bad boy Brig McKenzie so she can blame him for the pregnancy and cry rape. But someone is watching Angie and knows her secret and plots to remove Angie from Derek's life. Angie dies in a blazing inferno and Brig is blamed for the fire. Cassidy Buchanan helps Brig escape from the authorities.

Seventeen years later Cassidy Buchanan is married to Brig's brother Chase when another deadly inferno engulfs Ch
WOW pretty much sums up my thoughts on this book. I have not even the slightest resemblance of negative or constructive criticism regarding this book. I recommend this book to anyone regardless of preferred genre! A book filled with love, betrayal, and crime, a story I cant get enough of. This is one of the only books i would ever read again. It also contains an ending no one, no matter how much you think you can, figure out! Read it, you wont regret it!!
I loved this book! It is my favorite book by Lisa Jackson. I enjoyed the relationship she built between her characters and the attraction. The twist at the end had me on the edge of my seat. Once I started the book, I couldn't put it down.
I usually love Lisa Jackson's book, but Final Scream is just a waste of paper. I hate to be so critical, but I could not even finish the book. I will read more books from her, but stay away from this one, folks. 1 star
Elizabeth Morris
This is one of the best Lisa Jackson books I have read. The book was slow to start but it leaves you guessing through the whole book! Great storyline as well, characters were well placed and their stories were woven nicely

This was one of my favorite books by Lisa Jackson! I never expected the ending and it was a wild ride each and every page! Buchanan family is one of the richest families in Prosperity, Oregon. Mr. Buchanan runs the saw mill and his land of trees has made him mighty rich. His first wife bore him two children Angie and Derrick. After his wife killed herself he found himself remarried to Dena. Dena and Rex had a child they named Cassidy. Rex and his family owned a large home, not only with amazing ...more
Well I am just going to start in by saying that I love this book. I mean I own this book on my personal book shelf and I have read it about 15 times since I got this book. I can not find anything that I do not like about this book. It is one of those books that I finish reading and then I go back and I want to read it again.

Brig and Cassidy are my favorite characters in this novel. Their romance is so sweet. I enjoyed seeing Brig fall in love for the first time, and not even realize that it is h
Having read mostly YA books for most of my life, this book was only my third or fourth venture into adult novels, and mystery novels in specific.

I was looking for a quick read that would keep me busy while vacationing at the beach for a few days and was pleasantly surprised when I enjoyed the book so much that I stayed up all night to finish it.

The characters were so engaging and the mystery definitely kept me guessing. Who was the culprit? Who was going to come out alive? Who was having an affa

This was entertaining. It held my interest and had quite a few surprises. The characters were all very complex and multi-dimensional. I think I liked the first part better than the second part, just because I felt like the second part started to get a bit repetitive.

I'm a little torn about this book.
I actually liked how it started.
The story was good, the characters, even though there is a lot of them, are well-developed and interesting.
Each plays their role in the culmination of the finale.

But somewhere in the middle, it lost me.
And I couldn't continue.
So I had to jump to the end to find out what happened.
And I was shocked.
Who would have though that the murderer is ________?!?!?

I made so many guesses in the beginning, not this person though.
So I went back a
This is the first book I have read by this author, and apparantly, this was a rewrite of a book she had written earlier n her career. Overall, I did like the story even though some parts were a bit predictable. The good guys were likeable, the killer/arsonist was well hidden and there were plenty of characters to keep you guessing.

There wasn't anything that I really didn't like in this book, but it isn't like I am giving it a rave review. I think I would have to read another book or two by Lisa
This is the second Lisa Jackson book I have read. One more to go (Hand-me-downs.) A couple of similarities: someone with super natural powers, and forbidden sex which, begins with eyes and sighs, then closer, then closer then a kiss, then no we shouldn't do this, then more. But not all at one time; as you go through the book. So I am thinking I have read all this before, but then came a murder. And, for a good while, it was a good whodunit story. My only objection is that it was dragged out with ...more
A story about the rich Buchanan family in Oregon. Cassidy Buchanan, 16, falls for the bad boy in town, Brig McKenzie. A sawmill burns, and he’s the primary suspect and he runs. Excellent book, filled with many bombs, twists, and turns.
Keeps you hooked

Not my favorite by Lisa Jackson, but it did hold my attention and keep me hooked. Loved the complicated main characters, though the final outcome was predictable. It was the type of ending I enjoy. It was a good read.
Alannah Davis
Probably the unhappiest, most miserable collection of characters I've ever read about. If I were any of them, I would have wished for the Brooklyn Bridge to be nearby so I could jump off it.

This being said, the story was compelling and I couldn't take my eyes off it. Loved the ending, too.
A friend gave me a big box of books recently and this was one of them. I'm almost done reading everything, and the only reason I waited so long to read this was because... it's kind of long. Now, if you know me, you know I don't shy away from long books. But lately, I've just been looking for something easy and quick to read. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that even with the length of this novel, it still falls under the "easy and quick" category.

It's a great story, and more importantly.
Michelle Haxton
Just finishec this book and I absolutely loved it. Held some nice surprises and kept me guessing til the end! Definitely recommend for anyone who likes suspense with a little bit of romance.
I thought it was great from start to finish I could not put it down.
Lisa Jackson can write a novel that have you saying who is doing this why are they doing this.
This book was the cats ASS I loved it I have read all of Lisa Jackson's musters and suspense romance books and have never been disjointed.
Great book great read.
The story is pretty twisted and all of the characters are annoying but it had and interesting twist at the end which is why I gave it an extra star.
I lived this book right from the start it pulled me in and I didn't want to put it down. Lisa Jackson is one of my favorite authors.
I loved the surprising twists placed through out the book, even though at the end I suspected who was the true killer, maybe because I knew it was someone I didn't suspect, I started suspecting pretty much every single character, even the victims

The second half was killing me though, I really wanted to know the killer and I was so close to spoiling the book to find out.
Some of the dialogues seem really fake and lame

Overall I couldn't put it down and I really enjoyed it, made me gasp out loud som
Wow. this was a really good suspense book. it was labeled under romance/suspense but I would say it gears more towards the suspense part. This was a great storyline, with twist after twist! I can actually say that I did not figure out any twist or figure out any plots until it was thrown at me! That was a good thing. In books where you can pinpoint the bad guy right away.not so fun. well not in this book. I said a lot of "holy cow" (the clean version) throughout this book. If you like a good sus ...more
Charlene Gordon
Pretty good. Read this in 2008.
I'm pretty picky about what I consider a good book and this one was amazing.
I had to use other reviews and comments from GR to remind myself what this book was even about. But once I did recall it, it wasn't hard to remember why I wasn't crazy about it.
Lisa Jackson dragged out a story that would have been told with at least 150 pages cut off. Bloated and padded, this book was dragged down by sub-plots and added details that we didn't need. And it bordered on "ewwwww-ville" but go ahead and spit it out and stop handling incest with kid-gloves. You can't dress it up and m
This will keep you reading to the very end to find out who is behind two fires set that killed four people. Cassidy Buchanan grows up as the rich girl in town.

Brig is accused of setting the first fire and leaves abruptly with Cassidy's aid.
