    Poor heroine, she gets the hero He s a reject from the Diana Palmer Hall of Heroes As bad as they are they appreciate the heroine in the end and evenin the next book It s like pulling teeth with this guy to the bitter, bitter end.Three stars for a suspense thriller story, but minus for some serious ick and a hostile hero who has nothing other to offer than being a hunk.The heroine has come to Montana to track down a close friend as she has left her privileged past behind So behind we n Poor heroine, she gets the hero He s a reject from the Diana Palmer Hall of Heroes As bad as they are they appreciate the heroine in the end and evenin the next book It s like pulling teeth with this guy to the bitter, bitter end.Three stars for a suspense thriller story, but minus for some serious ick and a hostile hero who has nothing other to offer than being a hunk.The heroine has come to Montana to track down a close friend as she has left her privileged past behind So behind we never hear a peep from her ex, her mother or two sisters She arrives to find out that her BF was shot in the back and the case is all tidied over and the accidental killer has confessed He was elk hunting and shot the woman by accident The h smartly points out that it s June, not autumn and not only is it NOT hunting season, but her friend hardly resembles an elk The sheriff is sympathetic, but as she s an outsider he s ready to put this behind him The not so underlying theme of the book is Big City Slicker outsiders coming to the west, buying up land and driving up land prices Hoag even mentions Ted Turner by name as a much hated Hollyweird.As the heroine tries to find out who killed her friend, a variety of offices and houses are broken into, she s attacked and secrets about the area and her best friend unfold and none of it is pretty Hoag has a way with words and not always in a good way She describes the local big wigs incestuous mistress in distubingly gross details.It s hard to recommend this as there are so many unpleasant elements, but it held my interest and I was compelled to find out what happened Triggers if you are an animal lover view spoiler A sport trophy hunt is described in enough detail to be nauseating hide spoiler

    4.5 starsMarilee Jennings has spent her whole life as a square peg trying to fit into the round hole created by her family Always the outcast, she has pitched the job she detests and the fiance she doesn t love, hopped into her car and set out from California to the wilds of Montana When she arrives she finds out that her friend Lucy is dead, her home has been ransacked, and no one seems to care She s told that a hunting accident is what killed Lucy and her big city suspicions are raised The 4.5 starsMarilee Jennings has spent her whole life as a square peg trying to fit into the round hole created by her family Always the outcast, she has pitched the job she detests and the fiance she doesn t love, hopped into her car and set out from California to the wilds of Montana When she arrives she finds out that her friend Lucy is dead, her home has been ransacked, and no one seems to care She s told that a hunting accident is what killed Lucy and her big city suspicions are raised Theshe tries to find out what happened to Lucy, theshe discovers that no one is what they seem least of all her late colleague and drinking buddy Remember in the early 90s, when movie stars by the dozens bought big chunks of land out in Montana and North Dakota I think Ted Turner started it all followed by Kevin Costner after Dances with Wolves I m sure they meant well, raising buffalo and elk, preserving nature wildlife and the prairie What they did was drive up the taxes, piss off the locals and mess withthan a century s worth of farming and ranching history.That s the setting to this excellent book New money and fancy rich folk set against ranchers and cowboys struggling to maintain their way of life It draws you in from the first chapter, and doesn t let you go until the last page I ve read this book countless times, and I still couldn t put it down today when I read it The romance is believable, the chemisty between J.D and Marilee is palpable and the love scenes are smoking hot Hoag certainly writes it like she means it Her story is full of characters so realistic they practically jump off the page and by the end of the book you feel as though you re right in the thick of it with them The mystery suspense is carefully plotted and keeps you guessing almost to the very end Even if you think you know who did it, odds are you ll be surprised It s held up quite well in the 17 years since this book was written it s a bit dated with the references to the clothes people were wearing Bryce wears tight jeans and chambray shirts buttoned halfway down, and Mari favours filmy skirts, boots and tshirts with oversize jean jackets and Mary Chapin Carpenter figures largely in the music mentioned I was roughly the same age as the heroine the year the book came out, so rather than notice that the styles have changed, it made me nostalgic for them Other than that, I barely noticed the lack of cell phones or mp3 players.I don t normally like cowboys that much, but I LOVED J.D Rafferty How I would have loved to have tripped over a man like that in real life YUM I identified strongly with Marilee I liked her, wanted to be her, right down to her wardrobe Which like I said, is kinda dated, but I loved that look so much in 1994.I only have one beef and it s with the book business rather than the book itself Here is my question, to Tami Hoag, Linda Howard and others Why do romance authors who write perfectly good, steamy, well developed, compelling, character driven, believable stories, pitch it all to write crime suspense fiction Tami Hoag was one of my favourite authors in the early 90s She wrote big, meaty, romantic suspense novels with really hot men in them, and women that I could identify with Dark Paradise is one of her best

    I am banning this novel and banning any Tami Hoag novels from my reading list This is in spite of the fact that she is a very good writer who can weave a great tale of suspense and mystery However, her portrayal in this book of a sexual abuser as just an honest, truthful, and good man who was flawed, is beyond unconscionable The first time the main character met this man, JD, he verbally and sexually intimidated her by getting up in her face and declaring he was going to f k her The seco I am banning this novel and banning any Tami Hoag novels from my reading list This is in spite of the fact that she is a very good writer who can weave a great tale of suspense and mystery However, her portrayal in this book of a sexual abuser as just an honest, truthful, and good man who was flawed, is beyond unconscionable The first time the main character met this man, JD, he verbally and sexually intimidated her by getting up in her face and declaring he was going to f k her The second time she met him he continued to verbally abuse her and then grabbed her and kissed her to prove he meant what he said Yes, he was honest about his intentions, which just said he showed his true colors as a sexual predator I continued reading thinking the guy would become the evil villain of the story, but no, Hoag has the main character attracted to him I realize that this happens in BAD romance stories, which can even have a guy rape a woman and she still falls for him and a torrid romance ensues This idea that an abusive man can turn out to be a good guy is criminal brainwashing that has to be eliminated from our culture Hoag does go on to try to develop the character as a tortured and repressed man, but it was tainted by her opening scenes with the guy The fact that a best selling author would do this and get the book into the hands of thousands millions is heinous We women, and men, have to stop believing it is okay for men to behave that way, ever No truly good man would ever do what Hoag has this character do at the beginning DO NOT READ THIS BOOK

    I loved this book, the town, the characters, the unexpected twists, and who doesn t want a rough, sexy cowboy with hands of steel Hot and steamy J.D wins my vote

  6. NATUI NATUI says:

    I really enjoyed this book until I reached the halfway point The storyline was good, but how many times does Hoag have to tell me that the character is stubborn lonely loyal a misfit I get it already I didn t lose my memory from the prior chapter Or the one before that, either I would have rated this book much higher if not for the annoying repetition.

    It has been a while since I read anything by Tami Hoag but I had this one in the TBR pile so I picked it up, as it seemed an interesting romantic suspense.I am happy to say that I really enjoyed The book opens with the crime being committed You know who the victim is but during that scene, the identity of the killer is not revealed.We then proceed to get to know the heroine, Marilee, a court reporter who has decided she needed a change in her life and travels to Montana to be with her friend L It has been a while since I read anything by Tami Hoag but I had this one in the TBR pile so I picked it up, as it seemed an interesting romantic suspense.I am happy to say that I really enjoyed The book opens with the crime being committed You know who the victim is but during that scene, the identity of the killer is not revealed.We then proceed to get to know the heroine, Marilee, a court reporter who has decided she needed a change in her life and travels to Montana to be with her friend Lucy However, when she arrives at Lucy s home in the mountains she finds the place ransacked and a mysterious and overbearing man who warns her away and tells her that Lucy is dead Shocked Marilee decides to stay and find out what happened to Lucy.There are several mysteries surrounding the town but the one about who killed Lucy is apparently solved to everyone s satisfaction having been labeled a hunting accident Marilee sees it as ironic the fact that the death of her friend only brought a slap in the wrist to her killer Surprisingly she is informed that she is Lucy s heir and the letter she left for her leads her to think that someone may have been behind the accident.Undecided on what to do with her life and the property Lucy left her while at the same time intrigued by the people she meets Marilee decides to stay in town for a while She soon develops a relationship with JD Rafferty, the owner of a neighboring ranch who has been feeding Lucy s animals and keeps thinking of Marilee as just another Lucy JD wants to buy the property and is determined to fight the Hollywood crowd who has recently invaded Montana leading to the prices going up and the ruin of local ranchers This is the crowd Lucy ran with, so Marilee is also interested in them and what are they really involved in.Things are not what they seem and whenpeople die the tension between the locals and the newcomers rises while at the same time Evan Bryce, the Hollywood tycoon who has been buying land, seems to have found a way to get to Rafferty s lands through JD s brother s wife.We do know who the bad people are from the beginning, it isa question of why and how then of who Marilee and JD are not new as characters in the sense that we have read about the city girl who meets the lonesome cowboy before but I liked how Hoag wrote them and their story worked for me This is a romantic supense that is very heavy on romance, Rafferty was a bit overbearing and Marilee had to fight for every inch of his heart Some people might have a problem with him as this feels as an old fashioned romance I liked how the tension builds near the end when we find out what is really happening and the final confrontation scene For me it was an interesting and compelling read.Grade 4 5
