This book is about making giant alligators and people killing other people when they get in the way of the giant alligator breeding experiment with a love story also in there. So I thought there was not enough background at all in this story the characters were just there and you occasionally found out a little information about them. Lorena and Jesse are the main characters and they pretty much meet and then all of a sudden they are in bed together (don't get me wrong I read plenty of bo

I was immediately interested in this story, because of its unique location in the Everglades, and the focus on alligator farming and genetic manipulation. The hero is an American Indian cop with striking features and an imposing presence. He immediately pegs newcomer, Lorena, as a rich brat.

Lorena works at the local gator farm and museum, which is the perfect location to investigate her father's murder, but she's making people suspicious, including Jesse. There are murders and fatal gator attac

A couple have apparently been murdered, and the remains of an alligator is found near the place where they died. Secondly, a man has been eaten by giant alligator. Along with these tragic incidences, Jesse is startled to see Lorena Fo

Lorena Fortier got a job with a gator farm in the Everglades because she suspected the owner of having something to do with the death of her father, a gator researcher. Police officer Jesse finds Lorena suspicious because someone with her blonde good looks is not likely to choose to work in the Everglades. Together, Lorena and Jesse work to discover the identity of the bad guys.
I read this one in one day! I have read several books by Heather Graham/Shannon Drake. This one is a Silhoutte Intimate Moments book. I don't usually pick these up because of the size. They are just too short. I think alot of people don't realize how many popular, best selling authors cut their teeth writing for Harlequin, Silhoutte. Nora Roberts, Linda Howard for example. I still see some of these authors writing for these publishers. This one was fair. The plot was outrageous and a little thin ...more
The characters didn't seem to have any chemistry, and by halfway through I think i should have felt engaged in the story, but I couldn't seem to get "drawn in", which is what I enjoy in a book.
There was not as much history in this book as some of her other books. It kept my attention but was a very quick read
Lol...I wanted something "less compelling" to read this weekend...this was it. I actually ended up skimming a lot and it was short, so it probably shouldn't count on my Books Read Challenge. I have really liked some of Graham's other stuff. Her "Deadly" trilogy was great, but this was a much earlier work and pretty hokey.

Heather Graham's suspense mystery was a fantastic. I like how it somehow involved "crocodiles", something I usually don't encounter in books I read.
A quick read. Although I guessed the killers early on it was still an interesting and entertaining story.
