My first impressions of Simon were although he sounded hunky, he sounded like a bit of a an arrogant, conceited womanizer. But I learned to love him - particuarly after he planted the twin dog woods. even more so when he wouldn't let Fiona out of his sight and of course, the ending was perfect!
Fiona was a great character. I admired her strength and self sufficiency - although I thought at times she was a bit naive in safety issues. I thought her and perry were alot alike as well as I mentioned in our past discussions.
Part Three was a good ending. Although it reminded me of the Silence of the Lambs and the FBI agent going to see Hannibal lechter....But having Fiona visit perry face to face was great. And I enjoyed how she handled it. again, her attributes of self control and patience....
I found the end very engaging. The whole plot of Erkle renting the house. The way the search and rescue training got brough in...And the dog sniffing at the trunk with the body in it! Did keep me in suspense.
The twist at the end of Fiona and Simon tracking Erkle instead of the news woman caught me off guard. I really thought Erkle was going to get both of them and there would be some sort of stand off between Erkle and the Sheriffs. So I did enjoy how Roberts brought the search and rescue into play.
All in all I did enjoy the book. I was able to relate to Fiona in many aspects and could at times feel her fear. I know I was locking my doors and windows at night! I was glad the dogs did not get harmed too!
I think this book would make a great Lifetime movie and I think my husband would even enjoy it. I'll wait to hear what Dave has to say!
|Well, as far as I'm concerned, this is not the type of book I would normaly pick up. I did enjoy mostly the dog training parts. For me the book was rather predictable. Simon was the typical fantasy guy and I didn't like the fakeness of his character.|
Still, I don't regret reading the book. All in all, it did take my mind to other dimensions and that's always good.
|Yeah, very predictable. I might have had the newslady working for Perry or Erckle, the survivor syndrome.....Stockholm. Would have added another layer to the story I thought was missing. |
This didn't keep me up or cause me to shed tears........unlike the next book we are reading..but I won't say more.
Like a dog person, glad not one dog hair was harmed in the writing of the book.......kill off the bad people, but don't touch the dogs!
|I was racing to the end to make sure no dogs were hurt.|
I did enjoy the book...I like Nora Roberts books. I'm always a little disappointed when I finish a book..I get so wrapped up that I want to find out what happens, even after the happy ending.
|I did very much enjoy the book. |
I'm a fast reader - I think I've read about 6-7 books since I finished it...so it's hard for me to dig back that far and discuss.
I will need to pace my reading better to fit the discussion with the next book.
The dog part appeals (next book), but I absolutely HATE auto racing, so I am curious how I'll like the next book.
I need to pester our librarian tomorrow and see how my request is doing too! I did the hold request online, so who knows if it even went through.
|Sorry--I am a little tardy--been out of pocket for a few days!|
I do not usually choose romance novels to read--but it is good to change up now and then and I did enjoy the book. It was fairly predictable but the author kept it interesting--I liked the dog training and the search and rescue information. It may have not ALL been accurate but I thought she did a good realistic job with the info.
Simon turned out to be a good guy and Perry and Eckle added some suspense and were good evil characters. The journalist was a realistic portrayal of the typical media of today, I think.
Loved the way that Fiona handled Perry --
I did feel that in some way there would be a 'search' factor to the ending and was right about that--although with a little twist that added interest.
Looking forward to the next book--I am starting it tomorrow.
