[Shiver by Lisa Jackson] Kindle ✓ Lisa Jackson
Al iller comes after the woman but the big strong man comes and saves her Tired weak unoriginal and demeaning I can t say that I totally liked this book but I also didn t hated it It is a tie I guess Because the beginning was really good Just like a good thriller should start But then there came about 400 pages and I was likeduh Oookay I wasn t really bored because the story was intrigueing and all but something was just missing I thinkPlus all the info dumping and mentioning things all over again especially when it came to the victims I was a bit annoyed because we didn t wanna Shapely Ankle Preferrd know everything at allLike I said the idea was good theillervictims plot at least but after finishing this book I am seriously asking myself WHAT the book wanted to show me The ending was stupid and a bit out of context and it came Sword at Sunset kind of out of the blue Like Jackson needed to finish it now And the whole aspect with Faith maybe I am dumb but exactly why did he started theilling part and all Very weird somehowAnyway not a brilliant book but one you can read A good chase intelligent moves and skillful abductions Fair Play (Zephyr Ranch kept a psychopath on the loose in the fiction crime thiller Shiver New Orleans was the location just right for the haunting elements within the twenty nine chapters The uncertainity of the next move and the seemingly unconnected victims were effective in delivering retribution and terror I like the mixture of the characters an even balance of personalities and imperfection Aspects I enjoyed were their dominating strength obsessiveness and calculated actions Streamlining two contrasting loves within the story was uniue and eually powerful Subtle dropping of clues and the uick pacing made for a riveting read Shiver indeed The best book so far in Lisa s New OrleansBentz and Montoya seriesIt s amazing how religion can be twisted and molded to suit whatever fetishes or evil that suits you Montoya is looked at closely in this book and I found myself liking him as a somewhat failed character good cop thoughAn old abandoned mental hospital on the grounds of a still functioning Abbey is the basis for this book whonows what s behind all those close doors now and what was there in the past2 thumbs up and 5 stars I have uite a little collection of Lisa Jackson novels But truthfully I have only read a handful of them Part of the reason I pass them over is because half of the time her books are really really good but the half of the time they are too full of filler and not much story Sometimes it s not until the last 100 pages or so that the story actually gets moving But Shiver was one of the good ones This is a hefty book 495 pages But the story got off to a uick start and then stays on track Abby divorced and still single has decided to leave New Orleans She has even put her home on the market and plans to move to California But then her ex husband is murdered Abby looks like a suspect to the detectives at first She is uestioned by a nice looking cop named Montoya Montoya nows he can t get involved with Abby because she is connected with the case but once he realizes. Ur Lady of Virtues Mental Hospital a decaying old asylum where unspeakable crimes were once committed Abby and Montoya are in a desperate race to stop the iller but the past is never completely forgotten and its sins must be aveng.
