One complaint. This book was waaaaaaaay toooooooo loooooooong!! Authors note at the end says it is a rewrite of another book, "Intimacies". Her editors asked her to add to it ... so she did! Did not read the original so cannot compare but, to me, it could have been at least 150 pages shorter. Saying that, it kept my attention and kept me guessing. I did see some of the twists coming but not the "bad guy"!
"Don't like me ... believe me, girl, we'll all be a lot better off if you just...more
This will be an honest review but probably a review that is not fair. I have read several books from this author and I have liked them. They are not my favorites but she writes an enjoyable suspense thriller with a little romance thrown in the mix. I believed that this book was in the same vein but it was not. I am not sure if this ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
However, I found the twisted tale entertaining. Though I guessed who done it at the first mysterious POV. Sure the author made me second guess myself but I always came back to my first guess and I was right.
I also guessed at the twists. So despite being entertaining, I’m disappointed at not being at all surprised. However, I think this maybe the best of the LJ stories I’ve listened to so far.
FUCK OH FUCK, SUCH SICKOS! Almost every fucking character in this book seems that they should be in prolonged psychotherapy like seriously long for a decade or 2. And yeah! That's the only reason I think I gave it 2.25 stars because a) I LOVE SICKO/PSYCHO characters as they make everything interesting in a book and umm...*ahem* maybe in real life too...a little at least? and b) the screwed up ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
It's a great story, and more ...more
I hovered between a 4 or 5 star rating, however a five won in the end.
Final Scream, took me a while to get into it, the poor/rich divide a bit annoying but I could see from early on in the story this would be the tangled web of the story line.
The relationships between the main players once you know the ending of the story is written clearly between the lines but sending different messages, making you want to turn the pages quicker to see where the next ...more
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 ...more
