4-4 ½ stars – Romantic Suspense

Always listen to your instincts. I had a hunch about the killer in book one, If You Hear Her, and thought Puck confirmed it for me with his whimpering/growling around a certain character. Then so much happened in the second book, If You See Her, that I became confused and second-guessed myself, but my original deduction was right.

The romance between Law and Nia felt a bit rushed and wasn’t quite as convincing as the other couples of the trilogy (Lena and Ezra and

This book raps up the 3 book series very nicely. I really liked this whole series. I believe out of the three book's that book one If You Hear Her was my favorite, my reason's behind this is that in book 1 the killer was on the move doing his evil the most. Needless to say you must read all 3 book's if you want to find out who the killer is and how they catch him. I did have a feeling who

The “Ash Trilogy” captivated and claimed my full attention from the opening scene in the first book until the very end of the final book. Each entry was solid and strong. I would highly recommended that you read all three books in the order written; otherwise you might encounter difficulties in understanding the entirety of the case. Besides that, this series is just too good to miss a single word.

By the beginning of the second book, I had picked my killer -- or at least I thought so. I was ne

The time has finally come to reveal who the killer is! You can expect If You Know Her to be a nail-biting, edge-of-seat and very sexy read!

This series has a great cast of characters. I can't say there's one that I didn't like, but Nia and Law are MY FAVORITE! They're perfect for each other.

I've liked Law since book one, he's the perfect friend and support for every female in this series. While during book one he was in love with Lena, he was als

Law is a writer who likes to keep that part of his life private, even though the town people like to speculate about his source of wealth. In the last two books he has seen his friend and the woman he loved Lena fall for Ezra, been beaten and suspected of murder. With the events of the last book everyone thinks the killer has been caught, Jolene's murderer dead but Nia her cousin doesn't believe it. She is a photojournalist and is still investigating and finds a clue and comes back to town.

Holy Moly what a great ending to this series, Nia wasn’t my favorite character.

Don’t get me wrong I liked her with Law. But I wasn’t a fan of her thinking she was the be all, to end all. That’s why you trust a cop you like.. Like Ezra and you don’t go running in half cocked. Drives me nuts when people think they know better.

As you can imagine we learn who the killer is. And I have to say OOOOHHHH yeah.. I mean I had a suspicion of who I thought since about the middle of
If You Know Her, the 3rd book in the Ash Trilogy by Shiloh Walker is the conclusion to a series that started out explosively good. It was the need to know the identity of the killer that Shiloh had hidden so well in plain sight that made me come back for more every time. Shiloh Walker is an author who manages to disturb my slumber. This time it was a nightmare that I read the final book in the trilogy and STILL couldn’t figure out who the killer was which had me jerking back to wakefulness.

Well, after struggling through this third book, I have to say don't read the three of these in the series in a row. Holy Cow this last one was hard to get through. If it weren't for wanting to find out who did it, I wouldn't have got even a third of the way through.

Really, I think this author is trying to channel Lora Leigh with all the "fuck" and "hell" and super over-the-top instantaneous falling in love over protectiveness by the H, reluctance by the h, over dramatics all round.

Basically, if you love suspense and romance, you need to read this trilogy. Don't put it off any longer, don't wait. I picked up the first book, If You Hear Her on a whim, and devoured it. I was so entranced that I begged Shiloh Walker herself for ARCs of the next two books in the trilogy so I could find out what happened next. I was obsessed! Thankfully, she took pity on me and sent them my way. This is a great trilogy that has an overall crime mystery that is solved ove

What I learned:

- is that I can officially say that Ms. Walker is a master at Romantic Suspense.
- is that if I ever find out that you started this series at either book 2 or 3 I will never talk to you again. This MUST be read in order in order to receive the full impact!
- is that she has created this intense, emotional story arc, spread over three novels, and has done it is such a way, that I really wasn't sure who the killer was until JUST before we were told. AND IT ALL MADE SENSE! This wasn't

I am not sure what other readers saw in this trilogy to give it such glowing reviews. I started out really liking the first book even though I knew who the killer was then. The second book was a let down for me and the final book stunk. My biggest problem was with the character Nia. She was a world class bitch. If that was her only flaw, I could let it go but she was an idiot. This to me is unforgivable. She is smart enough to research similar murders and solve a crime that numerous law enforcem ...more
The third and final book in the Ash Trilogy by Shiloh Walker. Nia is back in town to find out the truth about her cousin's death. Law gets caught up in the search and can't deny his feelings for the woman.

Finally, we get to the end and all secrets are revealed. I guess the whodunnit correctly but I have to admit I tried to second guess myself a few times, certain that it couldn't be that easy. Yes, I would recommend this series but I'd recommend you get the whole series before you start because

Book 3 of the trilogy looks to be the best one yet. Hope is enjoying her new life. Mia is dealing with her attraction towards Law, while trying to find the person who killed her cousin. The killer, from book one, is still on the loose. Lena, is still in danger and has no idea. She fits the killers profile for his victims. It all comes to ahead in book 3. The danger, that has been lurking behind the scene, finally comes to the forefront! Hope, Lena, and Mia, Will be in the fight of their lives.

Rating: 4 / 5 plus a half star for excellent creativity near the end.

In most ways this book lived up to my expectations, but in some ways it didn't quite get there. I liked it, but not as much as the first two books in this trilogy.

Third book in Shiloh Walker's "Ash" trilogy about the small town of Ash, Kentucky, the people who live there and the strange things going on. Series really should be read in order as there is an overall trilogy arc and tons of connections.

We pick up 6 months after Jolene Hollister's death with her cousin Nia still not over her cousins death and doesn’t feel closure even with what happened at the end of the 2nd book.

Then we go into the killers head and find out about his first kill and how it came about. Interesting for me the author made it look like if his first love hadn’t goaded him to get rough with her while having sex he may not have found out he had a taste for killing in that manner.

This story is the conclusion of the Ash Trilogy, in which we were trying to figure out a murder plaguing the community in Ash Kentucky. I must admit, I wasn’t sure who the killer was, but I shouldn’t have been surprised.

Nia Hollister came back to town to expedite the investigation into her cousin Jolene’s murder. She was definitely a strong woman, who didn’t take crap from anyone. She carried her own gun, and she made sure people knew she wasn’t going to be anyone’s victim. She made her appearan

So the final instalment in the Ash trilogy and please don’t read my review if you’ve not read the previous 2 books.

Nia is back in Ash, totally unable to let matters lie after the murder of her cousin Joely last year. Hope’s psychotic ex has been nailed for the murder posthumously but Nia doesn’t believe it and starts to investigate similar killings and disappearances. She notices something – the killer is collecting trophies, namely hair and jewellery. It’s a key moment

Definitely my least favorite of the trilogy. I have disliked Nia since she was introduced in If You See Her, and she did not redeem herself here. She was the epitome of a TSTL heroine: rushing off into dark, unfamiliar places to search for a serial killer; refusing to take good advice that would spare her pain because she's too "rash and impulsive;" and just generally being a bitch for no good reason. At one point, she actually asks Law why he puts up with her bitchiness, and I found myself wond ...more

This book was a perfect ending to the series. On the romance side of things I was so happy to see Law finally find someone, and become a little more confident in himself. In the first book I saw him as a sad little puppy dog who couldn't get the girl. In the second book he was like a big brother looking out for Hope, but Nia brings out his stronger side and he does a little more taking charge in this book, and I really liked that.

So we come to the final instalment of the Ash trilogy, the one where we finally find out the killer's identity and see all of our three couples walk off into the sunset. On paper, this should be the best of the series, with the stories' climax and the romance of Law Riley, the most consistently featured character throughout, but it wasn't. In fact, it was my least favourite. Go figure.

20mins into the book and I think I know who the killer is, but only time will tell...

2.5hrs left, and all I have to say is... I KNEW IT!!!

All done and yeah there were WAY TOO MANY POVs in these books. It got annoying because although the story was about Law and Nia's love story in this unfolding mystery, there was too much "air time" in the other character's heads and that made the romance seemed rushed for Law and Nia.

Finally, the identity of the serial killer is revealed and I'm actually a little disappointed I was right. I guess I was hoping Walker had some twist up her sleeve 'cause I had the guilty party as one of my two top suspects back in If You Hear Her.

Overall, I thought it was a solid series, definitely enjoyable. Again, I liked the natural, realistic, way Walker allowed the relationships between the heroes and heroines to develop. I felt the books did an admirable job of combining scary, creepy, a

Hope snapped, “Oh, shove the Tinkerbell crap up your ass.”
