Although I enjoyed this 2nd book in the Cherokee Pointe Trilogy, I did not like it as much as the first one. I liked the characters of Jazzy and Caleb, but I didn't feel confident at the end of the book that all of the issues between them had been settled. That may come in the third book of the trilogy, but this book just didn't have enough resolution between the hero and heroine to satisfy me.

I’m going to be honest and say that the writing style of the book took me some time to get used to. That being said, it was not badly written, I think it was just because of the massive difference in style between the book I came from and this one. Even with that, it didn’t take me long at all to become truly gripped in the story.

Following the brutal death of the soon-to-be-married town player, fingers are pointed in the direction of one of his exes who has been known to threaten him on more tha

Sebenernya ceritanya bagus sih, tp entah kenapa, para penjahat di buku BB yang sudah beberapa saya baca, mereka adalah orang2 yang peranannya dikit bangetttt, kalo dibilang pembunuhnya ga tebak, ya memang ga ketebak..., wong si pembunuh hampir ga muncul dicerita dan ga berinteraksi dengan tokoh2 utamanya. Twist2nya memang dapet banget tapi agak ga masuk akal juga sih, agak terlalu maksa kalo saya bilang walaupun cara pembunuhannya kejem disini, kesian juga sih sama Jamie.

I enjoyed this book and found it to be quite gripping. It's the first crime/mystery book I've ever read really so it was a good one to start with. Wasn't overly impressed with the writing style but that's just personal taste.
I'd recommend it to anybody.

It was neatly written. I enjoyed reading this book.
For me though, this is erotica first, mystery the next. Usually I'm not very fond of the genre, but hey I only borrowed someone else's so that's it.
Turned out the book was good. Not a masterpiece of course, but enough to keep you entertained for hours.
Read it. It's worth it.

A weird mix of thriller, mystery and a slight paranormal lilt. Jazzy is constantly being suckered by her "relationship" with Jamie Upton, a socialite and all round rotten person. When he turns up brutally murdered, it's up to the town psychic, sheriff and police chief to prove her innocence.

It was ok... The narrative lacked any real depth, the characters were not fully formed... There were lots of opportunities to develop the story line and lots of questions were posed but none were really explored or answered.

The Jazzy's sister storyline was a bit pointless. I didn't believe for one second she was the murderess, it was implied she could have been but the author made it obvious from the beginning that she wasn't. Genny and her visions was really an unnecessary cheesey addition. I

This book tells the story of Jasmine "Jazzy" Talbot. She was your typical, rough-around-the-edges girl from the wrong side of the tracks but possessed a startling beauty that attracted the town's biggest heart breaker Jamie Upton. When Jazzy was younger she succumbed to Jamie's charm but as she grew wiser she realized he'd never offer her marriage and security because, well, then he'd lose his inheritance and he's too much of a greedy louse to turn his back on millions for the love of his life. ...more

3.5 stars. Sexy Jazzy Talbot comes from the wrong side of the tracks but she's made something of herself by owning a restaurant and a bar in Cherokee Point, Tennessee. She's also finally gotten over Jamie Upton, grandson of the town's millionaire Upton family. Playboy Jamie will be getting married in a couple of weeks but that hasn't slowed the irresponsible hound dog down. But he hooked up with the wrong woman, who tortures and kills him, then tries to lay the blame on Jazzy. Jazzy is also tryi ...more

Recommends it for: No one!
This book was all wrong. The characters were over the top and unbelievable, not real people, but characterizations of such (the dumb blonde naive fiancee, the womanizing man she loves, the white trash slut but nice woman, the uppity snob rich girl, the brawny bouncer, the sexy Native merican cop, etc....), and they were all one dimensional and flat. There was not a likable one in the whole bunch, and there were way too many characters introduced way too quickly. The prejudices expressed in gener ...more
I really don't know how many times I've read this book, but I love it. I just reread it again and I can't help but love the dynamic characters. Jazzy's got some fire in her, which I like. But no one tops Caleb McCord. He's the kind of guy that could make any woman swoon. Tough, protective, sensitive, good looking. The man has it all.

And I admit, when I reread Barton's books, I read for the romance and not the mystery. The mystery is amazing too, but I already know how it ends, so why read throug

I read this book right after finishing The Fifth Victim by Beverly Barton, I really like the cast of characters in these stories. This was about a sleazy bad boy who is murdered, he seems to be able to wrap woman around his little finger and yet treat them like garbage. Jazzy is suspected of murdering him, with good reason if you ask me! :) Beverly Barton has a wonderful way of introducing characters and with each book you get to learn more and more about the characters in this small town who se ...more
After reading book #1 in this trilogy, I was looking forward to reading book #2 (this one). What a dissappointment. The characters were horrible--all of them!!! Not one likeable character. Snobby, slutty, lots of affairs, mistresses. The suspense was awful. There were a few shocking scenes that didn't seem appropriate in the book. The transition between scenes was HORRIBLE.

And, my personal pet peeve, a tremendous amount of repetition. UGH!!!! Read a scene, they talk about the scene, then talk a

Sumpah, sama bagusnya sama cerita sebelumnya... Udah nyadar sih, si pembunuhnya adalah pengunjung restoran Jasmine's. Yang bikin penasaran, ya, siapa sebenarnya ni cewek kan... Mulai ketauan siapa si pembunuh ya pas di bab 25...

Well I must say I enjoyed this. It sucked me in from the start because it's got a good back story between the relationships of the characters. Genny was a good twist to this sort of genre, not just all detective work here which was nice. It kept me on my toes, I was constantly thinking I had cracked the case when I hadn't. The last few chapters felt a bit rushed though which is a shame because some more build up would have been nice. Also worth pointing out it is very graphic, not just gory but ...more

One of the best thrillers I've read in a while, and by far the best I've read from Ms. Barton. Fast-pacing, crisp dialogue, a better than average plotline and enough red-herrings to keep your mind trying to race ahead. I couldn't stop reading this because I was so caught up in finding out the ending, a sure sign of a top rate thriller. FYI...I recommend reading "The Last Victim" before this one. Although not necessarily a prequel, it does feature most of the cast of characters and will give you ...more

suka gimana dia menjabarkan pembunuhan dengan detail ((yaa ampun)). trus gimana karakter Jazzy sebagai seorang perempuan cantik yg sebenerya ga ganjen tapi emang rada centil, plus gue ga ngerti kenapa sik tokoh utama cowok di novelnovel romsus itu selalu kepengen dikarungin buat jadi milik sendiri? huhuhuhu.

Agak salah sih ya, gue baca buku ini setelah baca trilogi ketiganya. Jadinya ada beberapa bagian yang harusnya seru jadi kurang seru karena gue udah tau duluan siapa karakter itu dan bahwa dia bukan pembunuhnya hehe...

Sebenernya gue bukan penggemar romance suspense sih, tapi untungnya bagian romance di novel in ngga lebay-lebay amat, jadi masih bisa fokus ke bagian murdernya. Agak nggak disangka-sangka juga nih jalan ceritanya, jadi menarik lah buat ngisi waktu baca...

Buku pertama Baverly Barton yang saya baca, walaupun ini buku kedua dari Trilogi Cherokee Pointe.

Jamie Upton yang banyak menyakiti orang karena sifat egoisnya, ditemukan terbunuh. Ada banyak kemungkinan tersangka - terlalu banyak menuruku - dengan motif yang hampir sama, sakit hati karena dipermainkan dan dikecewakan oleh Jamie, sang playboy.

Oh ya, ada seorang Paranormal yang sepertinya merupakan kunci di seri ini.
Kasusnya seru dan lebih menegangkan dari buku #1 Cherokee Point, The Fifth Victim. pelakunya jg ga ketebak.
Tadinya mo ngasih 5 bintang, tp ga jadi karena love storyna kurang menyentuh. ga begitu merasakan chemistry antara Caleb & Jazzy..
Malah persahabatan Genny_Jazzy_Jacob yang lebih menyentuh (:

This is the second in the Cherokee Pointe Trilogy, but third in the Griffin Powell series. This book has the first mention of Griffin Powell, which struck me as a bit strange.
Overall, I liked this book but, the romance bit ended badly for me. Hopefully Ms. Barton completes Caleb & Jazzy's love life to satisfaction in the next book.
This was suspenseful. So much so I could have gotten fired for reading when I should have been working. I am impressed with the cadence of the story. It goes on and on building to a wondrous crescendo. I have moved on to the 3rd book in the series GOOD AS DEAD. I think LAST TO DIE will be a tough act to follow.

2nd in Cherokee Pointe series. This one was about Jazzy and Caleb and someone killed Jamie Upton because he had hurt his finance. It turns out it was her real CRAZY mother that escaped from a mental hospital. Also, Caleb is Big Jim's and Miss Reba's grandson. Not sure if Jazzy and Caleb will be able to get in good with Miss Reba or not. Big Jim seems to like both of them though.

This was a bit nasty, but told well enough that it kept me involved and reading. I was very disappointed to be left hanging at the end, concerning the main characters. That's when I realized it was part of a trilogy. I don't mind trilogies, but they can finish one story before they go on to another, IMO.
