I did not feel like I was reading a book but rather listening to a friend tell me a story. I do not know how the author did that, but the whole book felt personal and that is an awesome experience for a reader to have. The writin ...more

I have not read the first book in the series, although I would like to someday, but this one reads as a stand alone just fine.
Jamie Sinclair is a security specialist who still wishes to garner her father's approval. So, when the powerful Senator asked Jamie for a favor you could have knocked her over with a feather. Naturally, despite ...more
I read this one a few days ago, but had to wait a bit to write my review. I needed to get over my mad, because there were things that happened in this book that absolutely infuriated me. It says something that I got so involved with the character of Jamie Sinclair in the first book (The Kill List) that I wanted to grab her and shake her over some of her behavior in this book.
The Kill Shot is certainly another wild ride for Jamie, and if you like thrillers w ...more
Jamie is a likable character, a true professional, however, I am confident all the romance in both novels overshadows Jamie's full potential to the point where it solidly distracts. Given the seriousness of her assignment, she wasn't as sharp as she was previously. She seems overly preoccupied with both men's interests - Barrett and Philip, which is understandable to a degree. Her diversion conflicts with the impression she's created of ...more

"Jamie Sinclair’s father has never asked her for a favor in her life. The former two-star general turned senator is more in the habit of giving his only child orders. So when he requests Jamie’s expertise as a security specialist, she can’t refuse—even though it means slamming the brakes on her burgeoning relationship with military police officer Adam Barrett. Just like that, Jamie hops aboard a flight to London with a U.S. State Department courier carrying a diplomatic po ...more

Jamie Sinclair is thrilled and honored when her father, a retired Army officer and senator, entrusts her with a sensitive mission escorting a State Department courier from DC to Britain and back again. With little information a ...more
There are many things I liked about The Kill Shot starting with Jamie herself--she is smart, driven, holds her own in a male-dominated career, and has a sense of humor. She's not perfect and has plenty of issues--some deeply buried and some readily apparent. I also like Barrett, who although strong and no-nonsense, also has a soft side and unlike her ex-husband and father, is pretty supportive of Jamie and her skills. I think the pacing of the book was good--I like a lot of action ...more

Stephanie Plum and Eve Dallas, meet Jamie Sinclaire.
This book felt and read very much like the Plum and In Death series'. It was kind of an 'in the middle' type of read, maybe more In Death than Plum (in terms of serious versus comical).
Jamie does protection/rescue detail, and at the u ...more
I only had one small problem with the story; Jaime Sinclair is a Private Investigator, the daughter of a Military man and now a U.S. Senator. But franklin she left something to be desired in the investigative skill in this novel. Christoff writes the story wi ...more
Not exactly what I expected. I really enjoy thrillers and suspense novels and Kill Shot sounded like a good fit for me when I found it on NetGalley.
What I didn't like: The purpose of the suspense novel to me is it keeps the reader guessing and Kill Shot fell somewhat short in that area. I'm not sure what Ms Christoff had in mind but it was almost as if she had a secret and couldn't keep it. The subtle clues about the antagonist were not subtle. I felt like I was being hit over the hea ...more

The Kill Shot was the second book in the Jamie Sinclair series by Christoff. Jamie is a security specialist and daughter of a U.S. Senator. When her father has a political request for her to travel to London to ensure a doctor is able to seek asylum in the US, Jamie jumps at the chance to please her father. I immediately didn't like Jamie. I felt like the author tried to portray her as a tough woman who is intelligent and can fight her own bat ...more
