It seems as if this author is now pumping books out just to get them out with no thoughts of editing or proofreading. I used to like this author, and I still kind of do, but the last few books I've read have been riddled with grammar errors and things that just plumb don't make sense, this title included.
First off, I like the characters and the setting in the Pescoli/Alvarez/Grizzly Falls series. I don't mind the fact that the town seems full ...more
“Afraid to Die” is the fourth book in Lisa Jackson’s Selena Alvarez/Regan Pescoli thrillers and she does not disappoint her fans of this series. She picks up the lives of Selena and Regan about a year after “Born to Die” ends. We learn more about who Selena is and how she developed into the character we know and love. Regan is still battling her children and as a parent you can totally relate to all of the little problems that come up ...more

The story is mainly told through Detectives Alvarez and Pescoli, but we also get into the minds of some of the victims, the serial killer, those that find the bodies and Dylan O’Keefe, now a PI who had once worked with Alvarez in the San Bernadino PD until she’d messed up and a set-up went horribly ...more
Decided to do a re-read of this one as I jump back into this series! Love Alvarez & Pescoli!
This book is about Detective Selena Alvarez and Detective Regan Pescoli they are both cops and very tough as nails.
Detective Regan Pescoli is a single mom to two very selfish kids. Her son Jeremy is always telling her he wants to move out but only has a part time job just basically to cover his car. He wants to move out and wants her to sign a lease ...more
The antagonists loves the chill of winter, too much. A sick and deranged serial killer. Greep factor ten. He freezes women, making a sculpture out of them, then puts them on display with a piece of jewelry-Selena Alvarez's.
Detective Regan Pescoli, Detective Selena Alvarez and PI Dylan O'Keeve investigates. One problem: Alvarez has a secret past.
This would be a great story if the explicit sexual content were left out. With that said, the plot moved the story at gut-w ...more
A priest in love with workouts is fun. The elliptical training machine, paired with intense prayer and maybe fasting for good measure could, in these modern times, be considered a way to “sweat it out” for God, or something.
Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli are back in Lisa Jackson’s newest installment of the To Die series, Afraid to Die. This time Selena’s past that she has worked so hard to bury is coming back to haunt her in the form of an old boyfriend and a son that she gave up for adoption. All the secrets Selena has tried so hard to keep from those around her in her ‘new’ life are slowly being revealed and the floodgates on her emotions she’s kept hidden inside are finally ...more
In this installment there is another psycho serial killer, again targeting women in Grizzly Falls, again in the ice cold temperatures of Montana. Th ...more
We follow Pescoli's problems as the single mom of a 20 year old immature son Jeremy who thinks he should live rent-free off of his mother and be a slacker who plays computer games and runs around with friends. Her 16 year old daughter Bianca loves spending time with her stepmom Michelle at her dad's much more electronically endowed home and is equally troublesome. Frankly, if I were Regan, I would drop Jeremy ...more
I love going back to Jackson’s Grizzly Falls. I love the setting of Montana’s Bitterroot Mountains and the snowy landscape, and the story is always set around Christmas. The murders in this story are particularly chilling (pun intended!). The killer abducts women, strips them naked, and pours water over them until they are encased in ice. He also adorns each victim with a piece of Detective Selena Alvarez’s jewelry. It’s definitely personal!

AFRAID TO RUN
The town of Grizzly Falls is on edge in the wake of a serial killer, and Detective Selena Alvarez is no exception. That case was solved, but a new nightmare is about to unfold. There are two vi ...more
I do like the main characters and this storyline, but maybe it's time for a new setting. And it is time for the Regan Pescoli to grow a set - enough already, move in with Santana, stop letting your kids walk all over you and put your foot down and mean it - gets tiresome.
Finally we learn about Alvarez's back story and she has come to grips ...more
It was an awesome book, and I had a hard time putting it down. It is definately a must read to those who like crime and mystery.
So if I took what I read in this book to heart I would believe that all cops don't give a flying flip about rules or "orders" and just do what they want when they want...and don't actually "solve" anything but just get it handed to them and luckily kill the bad guy...I did like the dogs though.
