    "I'm sorry, I thought these books were supposed to have a twist? This book was so utterly predictable and straightforward it barely registered that it was supposed to be a twist. I get it, it's a romantic drama, there's just going to be elements that happen in common, but sheesh - this book was just plain boring. I could read every plot beat before it happened. There wasn't an ounce of creative thought that went into this formulaic garbage. Pass!"

    "It doesn't take long for Tessa and Julian to cross paths and the attraction is mutual and electric. Of course they butt heads because of their respective work roles but their relationship heats up in spite of their differences. Tessa is gutsy and clever and Julian is hard-driven and gorgeous. They both are very attractive characters who have their share of personal baggage and it was interesting to follow the progression of their relationship. There's a lot of steam here and you're going to salivate over Julian. The case is one that is brutal and difficult to absorb. There are a lot of exciting moments that will accelerate your heart rate. There were times when Tessa's decisions were maddening and ill-advised but at least you could rationalize her behavior, though her behavior sometimes bordered on the "too stupid to live" edge. I was also able to figure out who one of the culprits was fairly early on but it didn't interfere with my enjoying the story. I'm really liking this series and planning to continue."

    "This book is incredibly cliche. I read it as a fan of Diana Palmer, however I've become tired of her formula. The soldiers of fortune books all appear to have the same plot, or at least the same themes and motifs. I would highly recommend this book only if you haven't read the other ones. The formula: Guy meets girl, they fall in love, girl gets kidnapped/hurt/etc because of guy's line of work, he rescues her and love wins out. There you go, I just saved you many hours of your life. Once you've read one, you've read them all."

    "I started having fun with the latest Code Red offing because the heroine has my name. However, we have nothing else in common. This Kara was a part-time hang gliding instructor who immediately quit when a stray wind blew her into a tree. Wimp. Kara's strong points are that she likes to bake and handles teenagers, part of her job as a music teacher. Our hero, Cole Winslow, is a K-9 officer who rescues her from the tree. While it is refreshing to read novels containing characters with pasts, sometimes authors tend to dwell on it a bit much. This book also commits the sin of throwing our protagonists into the middle of a relationship within days. The story goes: Kara's ex-husband and father of her son was a loser who spent all their money on get-rich-quick schemes and wound up in prison. Cole's ex-wife was in a rock band and, after selfishly ignoring his needs for several years, she died in a car accident. Kara is afraid she won't meet someone she can rely on and Cole is still sniveling that relationships aren't for him, even as he pursues Kara. They finally get over it and, after hanging out together a couple of times, they decide to get married. The book was not badly written; just not for me. Give me a heroine who can make cookies and indulge in extreme sports. And for God's sake, give your characters some time to get to know each other before they get married. Courage Bay is losing its luster because some romance authors just don't know how to give us some adventure."

    "If you haven't read the other books in the series, you should set some time to do so before this book, but otherwise, a great addition to the series with nice surprising plot twists which don't seem overly dramatic. A nice easy read for many types of people and highly recommended."

    "I agree with many readers who felt that Linda Howard is not on top of her game with this one. I can't give 2.5 stars, so I went with 3. I was absolutely charmed in the beginning with the wonderful tale of lottery-winner Jenner, an iconically feisty Howard heroine who deserves a better story. The first one-third of the book is great and true to life. The characters grab you, and Jenner takes an exhilarating journey from poverty to wealth with a few soul-crushing stops on the way. It would have been a great romance novel, as in the old Linda Howard days. The crime part really goes off track. I have to wonder if even big-name writers like Ms. Howard are being pressured to write all their plots as romantic crime novels. Please, publishers, let Linda write the wonderful character pieces she used to!!! There are more than enough crime novels out there. "

    "Boring main character, awesome antagonist. When it's about Charley in general, this book is incredibly dry and boring. The thriller elements of this book really help catapult it to a new level. Surprising romance novel to say the least."

    "I found this book to be a jumble of paranormal activity, lame characters, and unnecessary sexual content. I found myself questioning whether I was reading a mystery or erotic novel. Let's just say that I made the mistake of NOT judging this book by its cover. If you are looking for a good romance with a twist, pass on this one. "

    "Flat, one dimensional characters who seem to be trapped in a state of arrested development. I suppose that's typical for San Francisco. This novel ironically comes off as a teenage girl's power fantasty rather than anything of real substance. Definitely avoid this one."
