This romance is than a mere love story otherwise as a man I wouldn t have read it With its undertones of menace thread of injustice mystery to be solved and unspoken comments on small town American life this is a novel that should attract readers from both genders and all adult age rangesThe characters are alive and whether nasty or nice cynical or naive beautiful or ugly they portray traits we can all both recognise and empathise with The main story of unreuited love is interwoven with another that deals with jealousy intrigue hatred and injustice The reader is driven to first trust the heroine and then doubt that trust as she grows through the experiences she faces and even doubts herself The hero remains a stalwart but retains his professional concerns and suspicions so that he is reluctant to make the conclusions necessary to end the doubts he s faced withI won t spoil the story by alluding to the ending except to remark that it is apposite it fits without being contrivedAs a reader of many different styles and genres I found I was drawn into this novel by the characters very early on The mystery and intrigue kept me absorbed and the emotional content coupled with the well drawn characters carried me through to the endingA book I enjoyed and can happily recommend to men and women alike

Passion to Die For

Ber what she'd done that night So when Tommy Maricci the man she refused to let herself love came to her rescue she couldn't say noTommy believed in his former girlfriend's innocence no matter how damning the ev. This one was short and sweet I learned not to judge a book by it s cover After taking a good look at that overdramatic picture I thought for sure that I wouldn t get past the first chapter But I was wrong It held my curiosity throughout and it was certainly a mystery I didn t easily solve I would have changed who the killer was and I probably wouldn t have dedicated an entire chapter to lovemaking However I did keep in mind that it was a Harleuin romance and that was to be expected I d like to read something of greater substance by the same author I like her style of writing and I m hoping she can step out of the romance realm and deliver something of pure suspense to readers

Read Passion to Die For

Idence against her was She may have broken his heart but he took her into his home for protection Because if Ellie wasn't the killer someone had set her up And Tommy refused to let anyone hurt the woman he loved. For the most part this was an enjoyable and intriguing book I was surprised I continued with it though because there was some serious formatting issues with my copy It made it difficult at times to read the book And if that s the uality of ebook I should expect from Harleuins website then I won t be getting any from them again Anyway the pacing was excellent in this story and I was hooked from the start a real page turner I was also surprised with that because I did not care for the main characters Tommy and Ellie And what was up with all the ee sounding names Tommy Ellie Robbie Annie Kiki Marnie Jeffrey and I m sure I m forgetting some It was super annoyingI had trouble though connecting with the Hh I felt Ellie was a whinercomplainer and Tommy was gullible and a masochist I didn t believe in their love for each other at all because it wasn t really shown Implied yes but not shown Honestly I hated Ellie and I couldn t respect Tommy because he loved her for whatever reason The romance just didn t work for meThe mystery was excellent though The culprit was totally out of left field and not even mentioned as a suspect and the climax of the situation was very uick and abrupt But for 90% of the book I was thoroughly intrigued trying to figure out the whodunnit That part of the plot was the saving grace for my completing the book and ultimately giving it 3 stars If not for that this would have been a 1 star or DNF I was disappointed by that fact as I m a huge fan of Marilyn Pappano I love her writing voice a lot This is definitely the lowest I ve ever rated one of her books and I m sure it won t happen again Unfortunately I just can t recommend this one not when she has so many other truly great books out there

    Kindle Freebie I think? I actually really enjoyed this one Harleuin serials can be a little hit or miss for me but usually the Suspense ones are a solid bet At first I was a little frustrated with the leads The male Tommy seemed a little bit of a jerk and I wanted to strangle the female Ellie for being so untrustingBut then the story starte
