Killjoy is our September Group Read!


Avery Delaney has always tried to put the past far behind her. Abandoned by her rapacious, conniving mother when she was only three days old, Avery was raised by her grandmother and beloved aunt Carolyn. Then, when she was eleven, she witnessed her grandmother's violent death, before Avery herself was shot and left for dead. Miraculously she survived. The man responsible is serving time in a Florida prison. This traumatic experience propels Avery into a life of law and order.

Her razor-sharp mind and ability to gather data and decipher evidence has made Avery an expert crime analyst for the FBI. But soon she will have to use every one of her adroit skills on a case that hits painfully close to home.

Avery's workaholic aunt, Carolyn Salvetti, is certain her (hopefully soon-to-be ex) husband sent her the gold embossed reservation to the posh Utopia Spa in the mountains of Colorado. At first she is resistant, but then figures it will be a welcome respite from the cutthroat advertising business, not to mention a networking extravaganza. Plus she persuades her niece to join her for the two weeks of luxury and decadence.

But Carolyn never makes it to Utopia. Under false pretenses, she is taken to an isolated retreat by a handsome stranger with a dazzling smile, suave demeanor, and the darkest of motives. His name is Monk, a hired assassin. Now, with scant clues and fewer resources, Avery must track down and save Carolyn--and outmaneuver a brilliant killer who is part of an elaborate plot of madness and lethal vengeance.

Okay, borrowed the audio for this one from the library. I might try and finish it today, though it isn't September yet. I need the "G" to finish off a challenge.

How did you like it?

Joeera  | 109 comments I loved it Jilly was a sociopath I did love her character thought.I think the mother's character should have been stronger. She just ignored everything her daughter did that rubbed me the wrong way.

Sadly, there are really people like that in the world who ignore the bad in their children.

Joeera  | 109 comments That is so true and then after they regret it that they didn't do anything sooner to help.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through this one and I'm really enjoying it. Love the narrator, Joyce Bean. I don't believe I've heard her before.

My quickie review:
★★★★½ (This is a review of the audiobook.) I don’t know why I’m enjoying JG’s Contemporary Romances more on audio than I did when I read their dead tree versions, but I am. I’m one of those people who was vastly disappointed when she stopped writing Historical Romances. However, I ♥loved♥ this one; it held my attention though-out. Nicely narrated by Joyce Bean.

Joeera  | 109 comments I loved this book it was filled with action/adventure, romance and suspense. Julie Garwood knows very well how to build conflict. The bad guys are in no way subtle, their really close to on being over-the-edge evil. The good guys shine. The clash between them is spectacular.


Avery Delaney

was an amazing character she had gone through so much. But, yet managed to stay grounded and down to earth and warm hearted. There were times when I saw her strength and other times when you could see her vulnerablety

Yes, if I were her, I'd be worried about inheriting any of her biological mother's evil craziness.
