Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Proving that one deviation from a plan can bring on disaster, best-selling Robards’ tale of deception and betrayal follows a Detroit police investigator on the worst New Year’s Eve imaginable. When Micayla Lange’s policeman boyfriend two-times her, she ends up spending the night at her honorary Uncle Nick’s house while he and his family are away on vacation. Unfortunately, this turns out to be the night thieves Jason, Jelly, and Tina break into Nick’s safe to steal over a million dollars. It’s also the night Mick has a recurring nightmare about her mother’s murder and, as usual, sleepwalks, stumbling into the theft in progress. When she tries to stop the thieves, she discovers photo evidence of Nick’s involvement in a highly publicized murder. Taken hostage by Jason, she realizes that although they are on opposite sides of the law, they are dependent on one another to evade Nick’s hit men and a slew of crooked cops. Mick and Jason’s sympathetic, symbiotic relationship turns to love as they duck and weave their way to freedom. --Pat Henshaw --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Publishers Weekly Using her patented blend of humour, drama, passion and suspense, Robards aces another novel ... Terrific as always Romantic Times Book Club on BAIT Robards is one terrific storyteller Chicago Tribune on WHISPERS AT MIDNIGHT 'A feast of menace and mystery' Woman's Day on SUPERSTITION --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Audible Audio Edition
Would have been a fun short story but the author really stretched it out, mainly with too much repetition. For example, it took about 2 hours of listening time to get through the first 15 minutes of action. The characters were likable though the narrator did make the heroine sound like a whiny 12 year old at times. If you're interested in the sexual relationship between the main characters, it was sparse and brief--more of a story about how a law-abiding cop deals with being placed in an unlawful position to stay alive. Interesting enough for a second listen in the future.

I wasn't sure that I would like Sleepwalker because I am not a big fan of books where the main characters are on the run through the book. Boy was I wrong about this one. This book will keep you on your toes with suspense from beginning to end.
Micayla (Mike) Lange is a cop spending New Years at her Uncle Nicco's house, when she wakes up after a nightmare. She is about ready to go back to sleep when she hears an odd noise. When she goes to investigate it, she walks into a crime scene. Jason Davis sees Mike and knows the plan has gone sour. Over the next few minutes, Mike sees pictures that changes her life as she knows it. Forced to make a run for it together, the two are in deep trouble with their lives in danger and not a lot of resources. The trust issue looms large between them which isn't good when you are trying to outrun people who want to kill you.
Ms. Robards does a great job keeping the suspense level high throughout the book. The chemistry between Mike and Jason is hot but in a sense somewhat forbidden. Mike is a cop and an honest one to boot, so the reader wonders how a relationship will work between the two characters. It is a romantic suspense book so you know that a romance will develop. I kept wondering how this was going to be resolved and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. There are twists and a big red herring before it all ends. I started the book and couldn't stop. A great new book from one of my favorite authors!

I have read all of Karen Robards books and this one just didn't do it for me. As another reviewer posted this book just went on way too long about the 2 main characters in their getaway. Definitely not one of Karen Robards better books and hopefully next time she'll be back to her game.

Format: Hardcover
While her family friend "Uncle" Nicco Marino is away, Detroit police detective Micayla "Mick" Lange house-sits his estate on New Year's Eve. A noise awakens her from the nightmare of her mom's murder. Mick investigates the sounds coming from Nicco's office. With her gun in hand, she catches Jason Davis, who thought the house was vacant for the holidays.

Mick sees the incriminating photos of the murders of Edward Lightfoot and his family. She realizes that the security cameras have caught her and Davis looking at the pictures. Knowing what that means, Mick and Jason take money from the safe and flee to the state's remote wilderness. Meanwhile Nicco's henchmen led by his security chief pursue them.

This an exhilarating romantic suspense as the lead couple play cat and mouse against a diabolical deadly criminal and his horde. Fast-paced throughout, the protagonists fall in love while on the lam, but they have no time for a respite as the enemy keeps on coming. Although why Nicco would ask anyone, especially a cop even if he loves her family, to baby-sit his house as he has super security who should have been the ones there, fans will appreciate Karen Robards' taut thriller.

I usually enjoy Karen Robards' books a lot, but this was not one of her better efforts. The plot was implausible; the heroine was not very appealing; and the hero--despite his good intentions--was still a thief and money-launderer.

If you want to read this book, wait until a cheaper version is issued.

Format: MP3 CD
I listened to this book as an audiobook, unabridged, and while the narrator did a credible job reading it, the story itself was absolutely terrible. *** Spoilers ahead *** Perhaps my impression could be in part due to the format-- I could not skip over the many bits of endlessly drawn out, cliche-ridden dialogue, the unbelievable story (frostbite anyone?), the continuity errors (how may pairs of handcuffs can a pajama-wearing lady have anyway??), and the improbable flip-flopping of motivations and character traits in our main heroine. I live in Canada and I know cold, and what it can do in the space of minutes, so all that traipsing around virtually barefoot with wet, "barely there" clothes... yeah right. Nothing like a good pair of socks to suddenly make you feel "warm"-- were they electric socks or something? I am generally pretty forgiving for these sorts of "light" thrillers, but this one... ugh. I stuck with it because after several hours of listening to the story on my daily commute, I needed closure. But those were painful hours indeed, almost comically so as my fellow commuters no doubt wondered about my head shaking and sighs of disgust. Do not recommend.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first Karen Robbards book I've read, and will probably be the last. Although, to be fair, I need to admit I only made it to chapter 9--around 110 pages--before I gave up in disgust at the time I'd already wasted slogging through this mishmash of ill-conceived drivel.

The initial plot line was so poorly structured I was laughing out loud at every chapter. A conscientious, dedicated cop teams up with a burglar stealing millions of dollars from her uncle's house because she happened to see some incriminating photos of him (her uncle) at a hit job for the mob? All in the space of 5 minutes? Yeah... that's likely to happen!

And cooking foil over the security camera lens? Uh uh... no way. A can of black spray paint is how crims do it now. Quicker and more effective.

At any rate, all Mick needed to do was take down the crim, and worry about sorting out uncle Nicco's pics later on--whether for good or bad. After all, he had looked after her since she was a kid--wouldn't she at least give him the benefit of the doubt rather than helping a criminal steal his money? Very weak premise.

I won't even comment on the clumsy dialogue between all the characters--it was so embarrassingly high school English 101. If I read the words "breast", "buns", "nipple" or "pert" once more I would've actually burnt the book. Please Ms Robbards; your readers aren't all testosterone-driven post-pubescent boys.

This book has to one of the first I've ever read wherein 5 minutes of action takes more than 100 pages to convey LOL.

Any chance of Amazon introducing a zero-star rating for dogs like this?
