More About the Author
She writes books about characters who are flawed but who somehow still manage to overcome the challenges thrown in their paths and reach for happiness with their soul mates. And while she can't tell a joke in the real world to save her life, she tries to inject her characters' lives with quirky, unintentional humor that surprises readers at just the right moment.
You can contact her through her website, www.tlhaddix.com, which contains links to all her books and a very boring blog.

The author did an incredible job in writing a story that held me firmly in its grip. I loved the pacing of the book because it gave me the opportunity to enjoy what I was reading and the time to picture in my mind everything that was happening. What I especially appreciated was the way she put the story together because it felt as though it was two books in one.
The first part had me following Beth, the lead reporter of her small town paper as she tried to uncover the truth behind a series of disappearances and discovery of ritualistic altars. It placed me straight in the middle of conflict and as the story progressed and tension built, I was totally hooked on knowing who was behind it all. The implication that Ethan, the potential love interest for Beth, was involved lead to some interesting scenes and I loved the excitement it had me feeling.
The second part of the book was what really touched my heart and moved me at one point to tears. Without giving too much away, it tells of Beth's journey to recover from the trauma of earlier events and her struggle to repair the damage to her spirit.Read more ›
First, the good...I liked the basic story of Beth as a journalist for a small-town paper with the strange going-on's. The tense relationship between her and Ethan was intriguing, and I loved the family dynamic within Beth's family. I appreciate that it was a pretty "clean" novel, not just with the serial killer, but also in the romance. Everything was spelled out, but not in the raunchy detail I've found in other novels (and it could have been considering the killer's tactics). And the author did well to draw me into the story, but...
The bad...I think the author may have lost their way while writing this one. Looking at the book as a whole, there wasn't a good balance of suspense and the love story. After the first half of the story the suspense (at least for me) all but vanished. The author did well to build up an interesting villain with an intriguing motivation, and I was really excited to see how that part of the story would develop. Instead, the villain was dropped from the story and it turns into Beth's emotional journey to find herself again, with a mini-villain of sorts sprinkled in. I wish the novel description would have made reference to Beth's recovery being such a big part of the story.Read more ›

The second book in the series, more enjoyable than the first because the characters are like old friends. However, I thought Ethan's moodiness and temper were a little too extreme.Published 1 month ago by Suze
I am on the third book. The first one was really really good. The second one about Beth was a little more romance and dealing with what life has brought you. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Bunny
