Meh. Can they put some kind of label that says "romance disguised as a thriller"?

Kind of creepy - kept me guessing for a while. Not a bad book - it did lag in some places - but overall a pretty good read

"Brooke Yeager's childhood ended the night she crept downstairs to find her beautiful, gentle mother, Anne, lying in a pool of blood. Standing above Anne's shattered body, a gun aimed right at the terrified little girl, was Brooke's stepfather, Zachary Tavell. Luck saved Brooke that night, and in the years since, she's managed to build a good life in Charleston, West Virginia, secure in the knowledge that Zach is behind bars. Until the night another woman is murdered--a woman who looks

This was actually a hardback large print edition, great to read while waiting for my eyes to dialate at the Eye Docs, and to read afterwards while they returned to normal. Anyway, about the book: A brief overall plotline - 11 year old girls sees her mother lying shot with her stepfather standing with a gun in his hand. Stepfather convicted and sent prison. Years later, Girl is a realestate agent and is showing a house with a co-worker. Client a no show and as they leave shots ringout. Co-worker ...more

I have mixed feelings about this book. Parts of it seemed to drag out and not add anything to the book. How many people can get killed around 1 woman and she NOT be a suspect? No, really? Then parts of it seemed rushed. As if Carlene was tired of writing. Overall it was a good book.

summary: while a young kid, the main character finds her step dad standing over her dead mom, holding a gun at her. Years later step dad is in prison and she's living her life. Until suddenly bad things start to

Ho letto solo un altro libro della Thompson (In caso di mia morte), e devo dire che mi era piaciuto abbastanza. In questa nuova produzione ho ritrovato tutti i cliché usati nel precedente, personaggi, probabili cattivi, cattivi veri, coppie predestinate e finale. La storia, per fortuna, si lascia leggere bene e scorre via rapida... ma già prevedendo cosa accadrà e scommettendo su chi e perché sta commettendo la solita scia di omicidi. Devo a Carlene Thompson un'altra possibilità, spero che mi ...more

an improvement on the romance side of things - the love interest is not a (view spoiler)... that being said, this book has more romance in it, which i find it refreshing after the other books. it does make the story not as "dry" as the others.
well, well, finally, i managed to correctly guess who the killer was for this round! i guess i am now a better detective after reading a few of her books this weekend.

Super livre! Super thriller! La fin m'a eue! Juste wow!
Le crime des roses c'était fichument bon! Tu commences à lire, c'est l'histoire d'une petite fille qui a perdu sa mère lorsqu'elle avait 11 ans. Sa mère et son beau-père se chicanait, elle a entendu des coups de feu et puis lorsqu'elle est arrivée en bas, son beau-père se tenait à côté du corps ensanglanté de sa mère sur des fleurs blanches. Le punch final...OMG j'ai capoté!!! À lire vraiiiiiment!

last whisper is an excellant book it really kept me in suspense Brooke Yeager,s mom was murdered in cold blood when she was eleven years old she saw who she thought was the killer and now he has escaped from prison. and Brooke starts getting notes and white roses sent to her. she is scared for her life then her grandmother has a stroke.. well i won,t ruin the story by telling you the ending its a real pg turner
I read it for my book discussion group. Pretty much your average ultra-mainstream murder mystery. The hackneyed dialogue has made laugh out loud a few times. Ah well. There are worse things to slog through I guess.

I love this author. I must say the closer I got to the ending the easier it was to figure out who the killer was. This book didn't lead me on in the wrong direction as well as some of her books have. It was still a good book.

New author for me in the romantic suspense genre... like her. Kind of saw the end coming on this one but at least there were enough twists, turns and well developed characters to keep it moving and interesed.

Brooke Yeager was very Mary Sue-ish in the plot, and so following her story became less engaging for me as the pages progressed. I was simply liking the protagonist less and less. The red herring was also VERY obvious, that around three-fourths of the series, I have already guessed the culprit. >:(

lettura prevedibile, in cui l'assassino si capisce a metà libro. va bene per una giornata in spiaggia, quando le capacità di concentrazione sono vicine allo zero.
Breathtaking till the end.
I like my mysteries a little faster paced that this one. It is slow going in the middle and the pace picks up in the end. This is why this book gets 3 stars.

Typical romance. Focused more on what the character was wearing than what they were feeling. Still ok for a quick read.

Predictable. Figured out the end before half way point.
