    1. For some reason I thought this book was a fantasy but I soon discovered it s a mystery Mysteries usually don t hold my attention so I ll see how it goes.Later on I did finish this up because the writing grabbed me It is apparently smack in the middle of a long ongoing series but the references to the earlier books didn t throw me too much although I think I would ve found a deeper connection to many of the characters if I had read the earlier books first Still, this was an attention grabbing mur [...]

    10. This is the fourth book in the Britt Montero mysteries Britt is the heroine, who is an extremely dedicated reporter covering the police beat for her Miami newspaper This book mainly focuses on Sunny Hartley, who was the sole survivor of a brutal attack 14 years before The cold case was brought to the surface by Britt s observation of a dead guy in the morgue I found a deeper connection to the characters because I have read the entire series Edna knows how to build tension and surprise the reader [...]


    11. Entertaining mystery It might have been rated 4 stars if the writer had just stuck to the mystery The two subplots were totally unnecessary and out of place Since I was listening to the audio book version, I just skipped ahead Seriously Totally unnecessary The unnecessary romance subplot was particularly difficult to bear because the reader Anna Fields didn t sound like or make the character sound like she went in for male company in that way How can you not have chemistry between two characters [...]


    12. I ve been reading this series from the start and other than the ending, this was one of my favorites I liked the introduction of a new set of characters from the Cold Case Squad and look forward to meeting them again in future books Britt is one of my favorite series characters and she didn t disappoint in this book I love how she can meet and befriend anyone all while uncovering clues One of those people is Sunny and I hope to encounter her again in future books But oh, that ending I knew it wa [...]


    13. I didn t quite like the ending but of course I know not all ending are great.With how Edna wrote the last chapters, I knew what was coming The way she got suddenly deep into the relationship of Britt and Kendall ticked something in me and I knew something was going to be wrong.I didn t expect the investigation to take a sudden turn about what really happened that night It was surprising Unpredictable and that s one of the reasons why I like those kind of books.Mysterious Maybe one day I ll be ab [...]


    14. Well, as I was reading this book I was really enjoying it minus a sex scene you have to skip This is a mystery It is a Cold Case that becomes a current case as they try to figure out what happen many years ago and the murders aren t happy about it I would have given it 4 stars but the ending was horrible and I was quite mad I don t read books to read a depressing ending So if you are like me, don t read this If you like real endings, go ahead and read it.


    15. A Britt Montero of the Miami News mystery Britt finds herself involved in cold a case mystery which she helps to unravel Very typical of the series in which Brett becomes very single minded in pursuit of her story as well as solving the mystery The story is engrossing and interesting to read, though the end was a bit disappointing as a number of negative things are quickly revealed and dispatched without a lot of resolution which leaves the reader hanging.


    16. 8 in the Britt Montero series Britt Montero, Miami newspaper reporter, covers the police beat.Britt Montero mentions unusual burns on a dead burglar to a member of the Cold Case Squad The burns trigger memories of a description of a person involved in a 14 year old rape murder Britt and the members of the Squad look into the old case and anger Lt K.C Riley Britt decides she really does love Major McDonald and accepts his proposal.


    17. Britt is on assignment with Miami s Cold Case Squad investigating a murder and assault that is 20 years old New evidence comes to light when a man is electrocuted during a robbery Britt s determination to seek out the truth puts her in the line of fire My favorite book from this series so far.


    18. This is a fast paced mystery featuring Buchanan s favorite sluth Britt It s a quick read with lots of action and interesting characters that you care about Several twist and turns with surprising revelations at the conclusion of the story I was disappointed with a side story about Britt s personal life That poor girl just can t get a break.


    19. I m not a mystery or thriller reader, but I liked this Despite a few cliches it held my interest and moved along at a good pace.I learned from this book that many multi characters are possible without getting confusing The author did a good job of giving you just enough information to keep them straight in your head while you read.


    20. I listened to this one on CD Very good storyline about a young girl and her boyfriend who are kidnapped, she is raped repeatedly, and they are both shot The boy dies but Sonny lives She is now a young woman who lives alone and is an ice sculpter.Buchanan keeps the pages or in this case, CD s turning until the stunning conclusion.


    21. After the death of a petty thief, a member of the Cold case squad recognizes the thief as part of a case he couldn t solve 18 years ago The victim is now an reclusive artist Book in Britt Monterro series haven t read that introduces Buchanan s new series about the Cold case squad Quick, fun read Should read by this author.


    22. This book was a fun read, but I remember Buchanan s writing style being engaging and sarcastic I haven t read her books in over a decade, so I hope the others that are new to me are satisfying.


    23. This book took me a bit longer to get involved with, compared to The Garden of Evil, also by Edna Buchanan, but once I was invovled, it kept the pages turning I was totally surprised by the ending, again, and I love that Not at all predictible And yes, I do recommend it.


    24. Excellent Continuing Character Britt Montero reporter works with police in the Cold Cases area to try and find the people responsible for the rape of a young girl and the killing of her boyfriend.


    25. Another murder mystery type book listened to while at work Pretty well written I didn t particularly like the reader Not sure if I love the ending.
