A typical Elizabeth Lowell novel, well written, though maybe not so much suspense as in her other books. Still loved it though!

HASH(0x9ae90aec) von 5 Sternen Suspenseless, romanceless novel. A trite, crass disappointment 10. April 2013
Von KJD - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm only 236 pages into this 373 page book. It's surprisingly boring and even mildly annoying. Worse, it took me at least a 100 pages before I even liked the main male character and even 236 pages into it, he's still no 'hero'.

The book is a romantic suspense novel written along the lines of some of Ms. Lowells other suspense novels. However, unlike those, this one is kind of slow moving and a little boring. Unlike many of those novel where there's a lot of 'suspense part' and little 'romance part', this book mixes the two almost the the point of being irritating.

The suspense part seems slow moving because peppered throughout the text is the part of the book that is supposed to be the romance novel. Unfortunately, there's nothing romantic about it. The characters don't really have any interaction that is romantic except to think or say how much they'd like to have sex with each other, often in ways that I find a little crass due to the lack of context. For example, they might be on their way to talk to a suspect and just slip in a 'Boy, I'd like to lick you' out of the blue into the conversation that then moves on about the suspect.

There's no sense that romantic tension is building other than them thinking and saying to each other that they'd like to have sex. There's no sense of caring about each other building. There's nothing but frequently expressed, practically randomly thrown in, lines about having sex.

Unfortunately, there's enough of the randomly thrown in lines about having sex that it disrupts the flow of the suspense novel and fills space which might have been spent developing that part of the story.

Overall, this book is a shame because the story line seems like it would be good had it been developed. Ms. Lowells other suspense novels might have been light on romance but the romance was good and enhanced the overall book. That is not the case here.

If you've never read an Elizabeth Lowell novel, I'd suggest not reading this one as the first. Try a book from the Donovan series first. If you are like me and just read everything Elizabeth Lowell writes, then prepare to be disappointed. I typically finish her books in a sitting, staying up late in the night to enjoy it and so far I haven't had any problem putting this one down to do other stuff.

Update after finishing the book: What a disappointment. I'm sorry I wasted both my time and money on it. It couldn't have been more obvious, less developed, less romantic or less suspenseful. What is particularly disappointing is the pure crassness of it. I bought this book on pre-order because I'm such an E. Lowell fan. Toward the end of the book, she didn't even let the 'hero' be a hero.

I've been sitting here trying to find one good thing about the book. Here it is: The dog didn't die.

I have the book and was disappointed to find that it was one I had already read. I thought I was getting a new novel to read by this author. The novel is great but wish it would have been noted that it was a reprint of an older book. I used kindle so it was recieved speedily.

HASH(0x9af1742c) von 5 Sternen Where is the real Elizabeth Lowell? 3. Mai 2013
Von L. Markiewicz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've been a longtime Elizabeth Lowell fan and it pains me to say this about her latest but - ick! I've always looked forward to her books because of her well-developed, interesting main and secondary characters; careful crafting/building of relationships; and skillful romance/thriller plots. In Dangerous Refuge the main characters are flat, there is no relationship development whatsoever and the "hero" is crude and annoying. The secondary characters are shadows of stereotypes. The thriller plot has no thrills. The two stars are for the beautiful descriptions of one of my favorite parts of the country and that it was a mercifully fast read. Who wrote this book, and what did he/she do with the real Elizabeth Lowell?

Dangerous Refuge Tour - Review

Hey everyone! Today I have a stop on the Dangerous Refuge tour with my review of the book for you all!

Dangerous Refuge
By: Elizabeth Lowell
Beautiful, sweet Shaye and dark, dangerous Tanner don't have a lot in common. He's a suspicious big city cop come home to his family's ranch and she's a bleeding heart who works for a group that seeks out ranches to conserve after the owners have passed away.
But the suspicious death of Tanner's uncle at his ranch throws the two opposites together and sparks fly.
Working as a pair, using Shay's sweet personality and town connections, as well as Tanner's experience, they set out to find justice - they never expected to find love along the way as well.
They both say it will just be temporary but when Shay is put in danger, Tanner realizes that he'll give up just about anything to save the woman he loves. But will he have to sacrifice his life to save hers?

My Review
Shaye works for the National Ranch Conservancy. She helps protect old farms and ranches. When she finds an old rancher dead she is upset because she liked him. Tanner is the nephew of the man who died and has come to settle the estate. He notice some things seem off and teams up with Shaye to get to the bottom of it. These two are nothing alike but have to work together to solve the mystery all the while trying to ignore the sparks between them.

Shaye is so awesome. She is hardworking, loyal, quiet but she will do what she can for what she believes is right. Tanner is a grouchy cop at first, who says what he thinks no matter if it should keep it to himself or not. You wouldn't think these two would be a good pair but they do seem to work together ok after a bad start when they first meet. I enjoyed the chemistry between them.

I enjoyed this book like I do most of this authors. It did seem to start a little slow but took right off. The slowness really was the author building up the background of this book so you get to see just what the place is it is taking place in. I loved how much of a grouch tanner seems like at times because it makes him more real. He isn't perfect and it makes it a better book for it. When the two get together it is a beautiful scene. The mystery really did keep me guessing for a long time and I liked that. This gives you an insight on how some small towns are. This is a very believable book sure to please.

HASH(0x9aaa48d0) von 5 Sternen Why do they bother? 29. Mai 2013
Von D. Bowman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Like Nora Roberts, this writer, who has been writing great stories for many years, attempts to engage us with a useless story and hotness a la 50 Shades..............

Oh pleeeeeeassssssssssse, don't treat your reader with contempt. Write a STORY, with great characters, good suspense and intrigue so that we keep reading, and will come back again.

Sorry Elizabeth, you have just been added to my " not anymore" list!
