This was a good mystery but the editing got in the way of my reading. There were several typos. Sorry, but that bothers me. Otherwise a fun story with interesting characters, a strong woman lead character who inspires a weaker woman character. An Alpha male and the strong woman collide but get married after knowing each other for a few weeks; she tries to find a missing man and ends up with a dead body beside her. This was a fun afternoon read.
Hillarious. A good story line, however, a lot crammed into the last few chapters. But I liked it.
A fun entry in this series. The characters are funny but realistic and the story is twisted enough to keep the reader guessing. Supposedly there is a third entry in the series but that book seems to be out of print or unavailable. Too bad for the readers for that.
Although there were humorous situations and layers of intrigue, this book could have used a better editor as the plot seems to be scattered at times as id the author is "trying on" ideas. I won't go out of my way to read another of this series but if I see a (used) copy, I'd pick it up and five the author another chance.
Ok, as a longtime Black Lab lover you could put a picture of a Black Lab on anything and I'd buy it! Evidenced in the fact I bought this book as a relaxing read on an upcoming cruise. Our first day at sea my friend and I found 2 chairs on deck and read while watching the glistening waters rush by turning from the dark blue off the coast of Fl to the vibrant turquoise of the Bahamas. All was well with the world. That is until I got to about page 10. It was at that time I turned to my friend and s [...]
After accidentally treating her in-laws to a peep show upon first meeting them, then being dragged into a cat fight with her husband's vengeful ex, Sara hopes her next case is a simple one. A philanthropist's stolen identity seems right up her alley - until she has to go to a seedy area to meet an informant. And when Sara narrowly escapes becoming the case's first casualty - a fate awaiting her sole witness - she realizes she may be barking up the wrong tree.Gabriella Herkert has done what so ma [...]
I enjoy the characters in this book, but the plot seems to jump, and there were a few editing problems. Sara is an investigator for a law firm. She goes to San Diego on business, which is where her husband lives. They married in Vegas after a weekend romance. Connor wants to protect Sara, and she wants to do her job. There are some really funny parts, like when they're hurrying into his apartment to celebrate being together again, and Connor is undressing her when they open the door and his pare [...]
What was the editor doing when he/she was supposed to be editing this book?! I'm so frustrated because 1) I love the characters but 2) the mystery plot is hard to follow and 3) there are too many inconsistencies. Example: there will be a conversation between two characters and out of nowhere another person joins the discussion without being written into the scene. The plot was so convolutedI was able to follow sometimes and then at other times it was just too much confusion. I feel like Herkert [...]
This is the second book in a series and it was all downhill as far I'm concerned. Sara is newly married to Connor (it was a Vegas quickie relationship and marriage)so they're still getting to know each other. He's a NAVY Seal and she's an investigator for a law firm. He hates her job and she loves it and that is all these two talk about except for how hot they are for each other. Jeez we get it. He hates her job and she's not quitting! Can we get a decent story now? Ahh, I feel better now.
A good mystery/thriller with a very interesting protaganist (a competent Stephanie Plum). Lots of action and a complex plot with twists, not all particularly believable - but then its fiction. My only complaint is that calling it an "animal instinct mystery" is overstated because the "animal instinct" played very minor role (and it was this that first caught my attention). Nevertheless I will add her other 2 books to my "to read" list.
Yes, I picked this because it had a black lab on the cover and it was a mystery. However, it went along at a nice pace, the characters drew me in (loved the 'team' that Connor had to watch Sara), and the plot was good.Will read the next book that apparently is coming next month.
I didn't like it and sadly, didn't finish it
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was funny, entertaining, and well written.
Tale of newlyweds Sara and Conner who try to follow the trail of a stolen identity, murder, etc.
I was really disapointed in this one. I love the first of the series! I hope the next one is better!
