Book Description

Detective Davis Hamilton is struggling to balance his career and his personal life. The high profile murder case couldn’t have come across his desk at a worse time--his partner is so pregnant she’s about to pop, and the sole witness is not only a suspect herself... she’s Lori Summers, famous for surfing killer waves in equally killer designer bikinis, and known deep in his heart as the one who got away.

Lori Summers decided the day Davis Hamilton dumped her for a society wife, that she didn’t need a man in order to be somebody. She lived up her daredevil career with glamorous international photo shoots until tragedy brought her back to her home town to face the past and re-think the future. Stumbling over a dead rap star wasn’t supposed to be part of that equation, and neither was running from a killer... right into the arms of the last man on earth she’d dare to trust.

3.0 out of 5 stars SOLE WITNESS IS A SOLITARY READ July 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Eh. Yep, that's about it. Eh. I struggled with this book and felt at times like I wanted to just give up, but I had received a copy of it to read in exchange for a review, and I was determined to do it. (And no, I have NO CLUE where my spawn got their stubbornness from....) I didn't HATE it...and I didn't LOVE it. But over 200 pages of... "eh".

"Sole Witness" is a romantic suspense penned by first-time author, Jenn Black - who also wrote a regency novel as Janet Black that released on the same day (October 2012). For a first go, it really wasn't that bad; it was just that I kept thinking it could have been better if blah blah blah.

Basic premise? Lori is an almost-witness to a murder but the psychotic murderess doesn't realize she didn't see her, so she begins killing people in her quest to kill Lori. Meanwhile, the detective assigned to the case is Lori's first love (& lover) so there is the whole reunion thing going on, solving of past slights & hurts, etc... Throw in Lori's inability to move forward after her sister's death, phobias, a pregnant policewoman, a white-trash emotionally abusive mother, and it becomes a bit convoluted. We hear (constantly!) from the murderess and all the time in the back of my mind, I was thinking of the psycho killer from Eve Langlais' F. U. C. series -- and how her psychosis adds a bit of humor to the suspense. No humor in "Sole Witness".

I don't like panning new authors; but really, I would prefer to check in with this author once she has a few more books under her belt. The story was tedious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intense December 4, 2012
By Lexi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book, although short is a must read in my opinion. It is intense, and has its moments.
The only downfall is that you see everything coming because it shares the view and thoughts of the antagonist right before it switches to what the protagonist is doing, giving everything away as to the events.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick, Entertaining Read May 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
SOLE WITNESS is a quick, entertaining read. Black mixes humor, likeable characters, and zany situations to create a cute romantic suspense tale. The antagonist is quite over-the-top, but fits well if you're just looking for a good escapist story.

4.0 out of 5 stars thoughts on sole witness July 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a interesting book. I loved the history that was there between Davy and Lori. the confusion Davy felt and the apprehension that Lori felt was palpable through the words and pages.

when you read what Davy did you want to just yell at him and say Are you serious you don't know why she is that way to you!?!? Lori is a great friend but has been damaged by her past and this makes her less confident, more self aware of defects she thinks she has and indecisive.

Davy: The handsome and totally swoony detective who goes against family and is head over heals for Lori. He is confused by why she left although he doesn't have the right to question it after what he did. He is the knight in shining armour so to speak to a point.

Lori: the model who stops her career because of something from her past. She feels cursed and is full of self doubt. At one point you ask are you kidding me you question not having enough money and can't figure out not to use your credit card??? Hello. sometimes she is annoying with how she is to Davy(although she has good reason) but she does take it to far sometimes.

The killer itself is really nuts. You wonder how he/she survived all this time without being caught. Their moral compass is gone completely and you wonder how they were able to get the job she/he had without flags being raised.

The story with the twists in it is fun to read. How Lori keeps narrowly escaping and falls back with Davy is a intriguing story.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOLE WITNESS - July 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What would you do if you arrived at the house of a friend and heard gunshots? That is how this story of intrigue and romance begins.
Lori Summers ran from a home of heartache and built herself up as a supermodel. Now, due to the grief of losing her sister, she is turning her back on her new life. She dreams of redefining herself, again. She has returned to Florida, but not to home. Her best friend Kimber has recently broken up with her long term beau and moved in with Lori. Davis "Davy" Hamilton has turned his back on his high-society family to do what he loves. As a cop, he wants to make a difference in the lives of those around him.
Amber Tompkins is bat sh*t crazy! She is an example of the egocentric psychotics found on the news every night. She has blamed Lori for all that is wrong in her life and she is setting out to get even.
Together Lori and Davis will explore the futures they want ... for her, for him, and for them, if they survive.
This book was a nice, easy read. It was an escape from reality, but not really. There are crazy people in the world. You never know what is going through their minds, but Ms. Black tries to give you a glimpse into the mind of one and I believe she has succeeded. When I finished, it took me a few minutes to remember where (and who) I was. Don't you love when a book transports you!?
Editing / Grammar: B. The grammar was perfect. A few editing errors were e-mailed directly to the publisher.
