Snapped (Tracers #4)
She May Be Dead Wrong.
On a sweltering summer afternoon, Sophie Barrett walks into a nightmare. A sniper has opened fire on a college campus. When the carnage is over, three people - plus the shooter - are dead and dozens more are injured. Sophie escapes virtually unscathed. Yet as details emerge from the investigation, she bec...more
As Jonah and his trained team are making their way to the top of the library he catches a glimpse of a woman in the middle of the chaos that he not only saved once before but who has turned his emotions inside out. Nev...more
The book was not bad, the action, mystery was there, but it was lacking in romance parts; other than some in depth sex scenes, the sexual attractiveness does not necessitate love and this is where the romance failed for me.
I find it hard to connect with the main characters and was looking for their characterisation development and disappointedly, there was no foundation for their prefessed feelings. I wanted to see more thoughts from the he...more
Sadly a campus shooting is not the stuff of fiction any longer, a horrible experience that many would not willingly imagine themselves in. In Snapped Sophie finds herself right in the middle of a nightmare, and like in a nightmare she feels frozen and helpless. That doesn’t stop her from trying to save a little girls life, a glimpse into the steel...more
I do enjoy Griffin's real-life writing with characters you'd enjoy meeting up with at the corner bar. It's also like a read through on CSI with the talk of DNA analysis, ballistics, raising images of filed-off gun serial numbers and documents, and trace evidence.
It's definitely Texas wh...more
While Sophie did make me want to smack her more than once, I DID understand her motivations, so I was cool with being a bit frustrated by her (I enjoy that kind of dichotomy, contrarian that I am).
The sexual chemistry and sex was well do...more
Laura Griffin’s Snapped is fast and tightly-paced, and will have you at the edge of your seat. I couldn’t put it down–from the first shot to the very last page, because I just had to find out who the bad guys are and what the deal was.
I really liked Sophie–she doesn’t make excuses for herself or her past, and she’s not going to sit back and wait for someone else to fix the problem. She charges in with her charm and her brains, and actually manages to dig up stuff that the cops ha...more

I loved Sophie in the first few books and then when she had her own I was estatic because she is hilarious! She is someone you can look up to and relate to! I thought I was in the book no joke. I felt like I was there looking for the killer right along with her and I was seriously scared I could not sleep which he...more
Romantic suspense is not my favorite subgenre but I do enjoy it, I need to be in the mood to read it but when I do I tend to devour the book. When it comes to Laura Griffin I’m always in the mood, because she is one of the few romantic suspense writers on my auto-buy list, I have read all of her books and I have liked them all. I’m glad to say that Snapped didn’t disappoint.
Snapped is book four in her Tracer series about a group of investigators who...more

First and foremost, the mystery plot, the sequence of initial shooting scenes is very well written and they carry my interest through to the very end despite the bland h/h's about whom we'll talk lat...more

We first meet meet Sophie in "Untraceable" and Jonah in "Unforgiveable" and I was very pleased that they finally were able to tell their story. It is a good one with lots of fireworks, suspense and well thought out details.
Snapped started ou...more
She starts with a school shooting, something timely and terrifying enough for the most jaded suspense reader. The shooting scenes are very well-done, and they give us good insight into Sophie's character. Sophie has been through so much she might as well have a target on her back, and by the end of this book, it will be much worse. But the image of her holding an unknown little girl in a crowded hospital, while simultaneously thinking she'...more

How I got this book: ARC from publisher
This was my first Griffin novel, and it will NOT be my last. I’m going to have to go back and get the other books in this series, because I absolutely fell in love with the world and the characters.
Sophie is headed to enroll in classes one day, and gets caught up in a nightmare. A shooting on campus has her hidden behind a statue for hours, watching...more

Snapped the second book I have read in the Tracers series. Snapped is number 4 and I have also read number 7. I found them to be really similar and had the some problems with each of them.
In both the books I have read so far I have really liked the storyline (even though they were really quite similar) but didn’t like the main female character. I had hoped that this didn’t run through the whole series, and I will continue to read them but at the moment it is...more
Laura Griffin really is a master at romantic suspense- I always immediately fall in love with her well-developed characters, her plots are perfectly paced and she really plays to my interests when she describes the world of law enforcement and forensics.
Her Tracer series is definitely one to follow, and if I wished she put a little more background information in so I didn't feel lik...more
Sophie may not have a bunch of degrees like many of her colleagues, but as the receptionist and the face of the acclaimed Delphi Center she is smart and resourceful. Sophie is a heroine I knew I would connect with. She's written with flaws and strengths that we can all relate to. Sh...more
Though she thinks she saw something ever so briefly it puts her at target. They say a ladies intuituon is good, but the police want facts. Can Sophie convince the police department and the FBI that she saw something more and w...more
This week I really badly needed a book related escape. Laura Griffin kindly delivered that with this book. In fact, as her books usually do, it sucked me in from the first page and offered a well paced romantic suspense that entertained me from beginning to end.
I have liked the character of Sophie right from the time she went to work for Alex, a few books back. She is smart and feisty yet she has ample flaws and faces a lot of challenges. She is a believable, sympathetic heroin...more
