Still don't like Zac Justis, although he has matured somewhat from Desperate and Deceptive: The Guinevere Jones Collection Volume 1. Also, think that Guinevere is a little too insecure about her relationship with Zac. In all four stories in both books I enjoyed the mystery.

Having read all of the Guinevere Jones collection books now and I really enjoyed them. Quick, easy and light reads that were fun too. Yes, it's true that they were all really dated to the time period they were written but that's ok, I still liked them. I really liked the Gwen and Zac and really wish there were more. Oh well.

I enjoyed these two Guinevere Jones titles and the developing relationship between Gwen and Zac. somehow Gwen involves Zac in two more investigations that end in dangerous confrontations with villians.

when you look at all 4 stories, you see a nice broad range of mysteries. in these last 2, there was a little more humor - which i like. however, the final story started out really, really trite and silly. i kind of had to force myself to contine reading. the last story started out with the witless heroine thinking she can solve mysteries just like a trained, experienced investigator. of course, we know the hero will have to save her. anyway, once i got thru the beginning chapters of the 2nd stor ...more

The Sinister Touch - I enjoyed meeting Mason, the "naked artist" from the previous books. And it was fun watching Gwen and Zac deal with their jealous reactions to certain situations, as they become more committed to each other. The '80s-era neopaganism = satanism (Roman Polansky style) is ... eh, this was better than Witchcraft but that's about as much as I can say for it. (Disclosure: I have a number of friends who fall under the broad neo-pagan umbrella and these sorts of stereotypes have act ...more

I was almost sad to finish this knowing there aren’t going to be any more books with Zac and Gwen. The stories were fun and it was terrific watching Zac and Gwen grow as a couple. Again terrific fun action and adventure. Well worth the read.

I really liked the book. The first abd second volumes are basically one long book. I love the interaction between Guinvere and Zak. Their discovery together and their romance is at times funny and at others touching.
