I wanted to give The Good Samaritan 4 stars but I just can't. The problem is, I liked this story for most of it, but a few things began to drag it down for me. One is the incessant guilt these two protagonists constantly feel about everything, all the time. Especially Sawyer. It gets boring. Emma, I started out liking a lot but somewhere along the way that was disintegrating. It hit a pitch when I began to feel that she was incredibly narcissistic. Sawyer is angry at her for not telling him the ...more

Dr. Emma Rhodes has left her past behind and finally feels safe. Attending an officer involved shooting, including his K9 partner is a little unusual, but she does what she can for the dog before sending him to the veterinarian. Meeting again the doctor that saved his K9 Samson’s life becomes a life changing experience for Detective Sawyer Gerrard. He is working one of the worst cases of his career and when it seems as Emma may be the next victim, he puts her in protective custody…his. Emma has ...more

There was more romance than I expected (I thought it was going to focus more on the serial killer and solving that) but it made it more enjoyable to read. I think it was pretty easy to figure out who the killer was based on the small pool of potential suspects. I'd like to see a book that features Ian (possibly with Molly as the love interest?) and maybe one with Sawyer's brother. This was probably 3.5 stars for me, rounded up to 4 because Sam was the best character. ;)

Definitely in the mood for a stalker-thriller. Poor Emma has been hiding from a stalker, she’s keeping all her fears bottled up but she’s resilient and strong. Sawyer is on the case, with Sam his K9 partner, of the Good Samaritan serial killer. Pay attention to the clues and you might figure it out. Plenty of twists and some sneaky information to throw us off. Very intriguing storyline with strong multifaceted characters, and even more thrilling mystery. I received my copy through Netgalley, rev ...more

This is listed as a mystery/thriller, but I would put it firmly in the romantic thriller category as the relationship between Emma and Sawyer is one of the main plot points. This was my first Melynda Price book and I would definitely read more by her.
There are a number of twist and turns to keep the reader interested and enough clues that if you're paying attention you'll figure out who the killer is before the end. Bonus is the addition of Sam, Sawyer's K-9 partner.
The book is an easy enjoyabl

Loved this book loved the relationship between sawyer emma and sam. I think it was good to know how each of them was feeling and seeing their relationship grow was really loveley and didnt take away from the serial killer story that was also going on i was gripped from begginning to end i totally cried for her and fealt for her and sawyer and it didnt click for me who the killer was which is always good really loved this book.

I really enjoyed this - the thriller side had me second guessing for quite a while until I thought I knew who the stalker was (and I was right). The romance was great - just the perfect amount to keep it interesting

Please can Hunter have a book!

Good book

Definitely a read if you like romantic suspense novels. Melynda Price happens to be one of my favorite. Her writing is great, not too cheesy not too gory.

The Good Samaritan by Melynda Price was listed as a Mystery/thriller, but the romance is so prominent it should definitely be added in the description. I wasn't prepared for all of the descriptive sex scenes (not that I am complaining). The thriller part was excellent, serial killer on the loose has his sights set on the main character Emma, an ER doctor who "befriends" one of her especially hot patients who happens to be a detective. Sawyer(the detective) takes on the role of protector to Emma ...more
