Well, it's not really a quote just my feelings, I forgot to see if I highlighted anything while reading this and I already returned it to the library. Oops!


Breakdown of Rating

Plot: 4.3/5 Intriguing premise, I thought from the synopsis that I had this figured out, but
I'm pretty sure this is my first Gayle Wilson least my first Gayle Wilson suspense novel, and I really enjoyed it!

Jace was aloof and tortured, just the way I like them! Lindsay was a little naive, and she really had me believing in some of her students. I had one of the bad guys figured out from the start, but the others kinda threw me for a loop. These teens were a little scary, and the dramatic climax of the novel could have been ripped from the headlines today. My only wish is
Even though the suspense got off to a rocky start for me, I eventually got swept up in it and had to keep reading. The romance didn't work quite as well. Given the subject matter of the suspense, I found any "mushy love stuff" pretty jarring. And in the end, when the hero and heroine blissfully joke about making babies together? I mean, AFTER THAT ENDING?!?!?! Yeah, just way too soon.
Lindsey Sloan is a teacher at Randolph-Lowen High School in a small town in Alabama. Detective Jace Nolan believes her students are responsible for setting fires in local black churches.

A very edge of your seat suspenseful romance.

Had to read it off and on due to my doctors appointments and then getting pretty sick; but the story was so strong and suspenseful enough to stick with me. A hard to put down book that gave the opportunity for the reader to try and piece things together before the story revealed the slight twist. I can’t wait to read more of Gayle Wilson’s exquisite books !

A mystery with a bit of sizzle is how I would describe this book. The characters are recognizable as those you may know in your life and the plot is something that could be torn from today's headlines. There is mystery, romance, and twists and turns.

Murder and sex. It was like reading a Candlelight romance while people were getting murdered around the two main characters. It was another quick in between read, not much special but ok enough for during a rainy day.

So I thought this was going to be a YA novel, but once I got to the graphic seksi time about halfway though I realized it wasn't. What it was, though, was a very good and well thought out novel. High school teacher Lindsey Sloan's small Alabama town was rocked when three local churches were burned to the ground and the town's new detective, Jace, is trying to convince her that one her her students committed the crimes. Meanwhile, the school is having a rough time, grieving through multiple ...more

Talking about Evil Geniuses? This Terrifying Novel from Gayle Wilson will bring chills and creepy vibe around you. The fact that a group of Geniuses embodied her story made it so compelling. It made my night an arson of scary thought.

This novel caught me from the beginning until the end. The story line is just incredible. the character is so obscure that gave a frustrating feeling to turn each and every page up to the very end. The edge of fear that it offer, felt like i’m on a road trip the has

First time to read this author. Came across the title in my Goodreads "recommended" section and thought the plot sounded unusual and interesting. The start was not particularly spectacular (as the crime had already been committed and we only see the start of the localized investigation). However, the suspense quickly builds up. If you are a fan of Karen Rose, Kate Brady or dark romance suspense, then this will be right up your alley. While the romance is not as intensive, the suspense is ...more

Probably my favorite of all Gayle Wilson's books (and that is a long list!) She draws on her "former life" as a high school teacher of gifted students and really brings her characters to life. Fortunately, Ms. Wilson never experienced many of the things her main characters go through (at least that we know of!)

Nicely done Good balance btw romance and suspense. Great characters although the author is bit awkward writing about comes off as something a guy would write.
This book was recommended to me by my sister-in-law. The plot was pretty good but could have done w/o the typical love affair.

If you like romantic mystery, this is a good one! I didn't figure it out until the very end. Not to mention, the romantic piece was very good!

This book was okay. Not my favorite, but kept my interest. I found the plot to be fairly predictable, and had figured out the players about halfway through.
