Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Sisters Jackson and Bush craftily combine suspense with the paranormal in this rich sequel to 2009's bestselling Wicked Game. Laura Adderley, a nurse at a coastal Oregon hospital and a member of the psychic sisterhood of the Colony, is uneasily pregnant with her philandering ex-husband's child. Serial killer Justice Turnbull is hunting members of the Colony, so when he escapes from a nearby psychiatric hospital, Laura fears for her own life and her unborn child's. She begs the help of Harrison Frost, a reporter writing a story on Justice's escape and his connection to the Colony, and soon Harrison's undeniable attraction to her and desire to protect her outweigh his longing to follow the story. The affable protagonists maintain their individual identities as their romance sizzles to life, and several subplots add depth to this somewhat lengthy but deftly plotted and enticing read. (June)

Review

Sisters Jackson and Bush craftily combine suspense with the paranormal in this rich sequel to 2009's bestselling Wicked Game. Laura Adderley, a nurse at a coastal Oregon hospital and a member of the psychic sisterhood of the Colony, is uneasily pregnant with her philandering ex-husband's child. Serial killer Justice Turnbull is hunting members of the Colony, so when he escapes from a nearby psychiatric hospital, Laura fears for her own life and her unborn child's. She begs the help of Harrison Frost, a reporter writing a story on Justice's escape and his connection to the Colony, and soon Harrison's undeniable attraction to her and desire to protect her outweigh his longing to follow the story. The affable protagonists maintain their individual identities as their romance sizzles to life, and several subplots add depth to this somewhat lengthy but deftly plotted and enticing read. (June) --Publishers Weekly

It's been two years since Laura (Lorelie) Adderley has heard psychopathic serial killer Justice Turnbull's voice in her head. His sibilant whispers suddenly scratch at her mind, and she learns that he has escaped and is on his way back to Discovery Bay. It's clear that the gifted women of her family cloistered at Siren Song lodge--or anyone who gets in the way--are no longer safe, and it's only a matter of time before the slaughter begins again. As the bodies pile up, Laura finally reaches out to journalist Harrison Frost, but will it be in time and is he the "truth seeker" whom her sister Cassandra says she needs? VERDICT Once again, siblings Jackson and Bush have teamed up on a chilling, slightly paranormal thriller that continues the story begun in Wicked Games. Terrifying, grim, and downright creepy, this is one that may give you second thoughts about visiting the Oregon coast (sorry, Oregon) and is definitely one you don't want to read alone at night. Best-selling authors in their own right, Jackson lives in the Pacific Northwest, and Bush lives in Oregon. --Library Journal

This is yet another good book written via Lisa Jackson/Nancy Bush.
L. Pino
The story is suspenseful with enough plot twists to keep your interest throughout the book.
N. Ash
I don't like being left wondering; it seems like a waste of my time to have read the book.

To start out with I was hesitant to buy this book only because I hadn't read any reviews yet. I review EVERYTHING before I buy it. That being said I decided to write a review on this book for those of you out there who may be interested in purchasing this book.
I barely ever write any reviews, but I wanted people to know that I loved everything about this book! I think I felt every emotion Laura felt. There were times when I was squirming in my seat as I read through the pages. If I would have had a day to myself I would have read it in a day! It was well written and had a great story line.
If you are questioning buyting this book, don't. Purchase it and enjoy!!

First off, I love Lisa Jackson but WIcked Lies written with her sister Nancy Bush was one of the longest, most boring books I have ever read. The only reason I finished it was because I bought the hardcover instead of waiting for the paperback to come out. You can tell there are two different styles of writing and they tend to repete themselves quite a bit. Also a few typo's that drove me crazy. They have a staff to check for that stuff and when a non writer can find them then they should too.
On the plus side, the story line was good but just dragged on way too long.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a longtime fan of Lisa Jackson I anticipated the release of Wicked Lies but, by the end of the first chapter, I knew that this novel was not going to live up to her others. It was, in fact, probably THE worst Lisa Jackson novel on the market, part of which I attribute to the collaborative work with her sister, Nancy Bush.

The plot outline sounds exciting; the words are anything but. The storyline is a classic case of "it's 384 pages but could have been told in 200", extremely repetitive and littered with numerous typographical errors [ie: Kirsten and Kirstin used within the same sentence]. The end of the novel is typical of those in a series and provides questions rather than answers. Though my curiosity is peaked in regard to a few, the questions will go unanswered as I doubt I'll be able to read my way through another "colony" novel.

If you're a fan of Jackson I'd highly recommend passing this one over. It taints her image more than it builds it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The plot sounds great, but at least a third of this book could have been trimmed and you wouldn't miss it, including two pointless subplots and extra characters. I downloaded the book not realizing it was a sequel. There's a lot of awkward backstory and repetition. How many times do we need to be reminded that the heroine is pregnant with her ex-husband's baby or that the psychotic killer is a psychopath? And don't forget the exclamation points! Without those, we wouldn't know it was exciting.

The main characters fall in love right away and then spend a lot of time thinking about whether or not they're in love as they run around hiding from and looking for the killer--who, by the way, is ssssuper ssssilly, with his spelled out hissing sounds.

The writing seemed very amateurish and riddled with errors, but I persevered to the ludicrous, almost comical climax, hoping for some exciting pay off. I was sorry I bothered.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read two or three books a week. One at least for light entertainment. I seldom, if ever, write a review and never for light weight reading. This then is more of a warning. It is a mess on many levels. Yes, it is in need of a line edit. There are typos a plenty. That becomes an annoyance as the reader realizes how little else is working in the book.

There are needless, pointless sub plots and characters. Not only do they fail to add to the forward motion of the plot, they offer nothing to any resolution. For instance, two teenage brothers decide to hitch hike ninety miles to take down a maniacal killer for no other purpose but to show off for their girl friends. That done, they just stand about as the climax falls apart around them.

The whole supernatural element in the tale is an over lay that is only useful to foster the most improbable of coincidences. Any explanation of it blows away when the book ends in a question the authors are unwilling, or unable , to answer .

I am delighted to be finished. My husband concurs........he tired of my complaints.

Format: Audio CD
CD /unabridged/Thriller: There are soooo many things wrong with is book. This review will have spoilers in it and I don't care because I am not recommending it.
Nutty cousin escapes the mental hospital and is going after his cloistered cousins from a "cult". He and his one cousin, Lorelei, can communicate. When you hear "Sisssteer", take a shot! And you hear it a lot and my eyes rolled every time.
Lorelei is a doormat. Harrison is a cad. But hey, Lorelei is in love with him. Why? Maybe because when she admits that she was pregnant and just had a miscarriage the day before, he's only concerned with her lying to him. He at no time asks if she is okay! She barely knows him and it's none of his business and she didn't lie, she just didn't tell him. Of course being the doormat she is, blames herself and starts to believe that she lied (?).
Other problems:
Margaret believes Justice can't get hold of a ladder and doesn't call an ambulance when her niece is stabbed.
How many cellphones fall out of someone's grasp? At some point take a hint and tie it to your arm.
Lorelei's ex-husband doesn't know that she was from the cult. She never told him. Keeping important information from your husband was probably the root of your divorce.
Lorelei is in a small room and is worrying about shooting a gun because it may ricochet. She finally shoots and instead of hitting the person in front of her, hits a lamp.
The police are smarter than Harrison. So shouldn't Harrison keep them in the loop more?
Justice can smell pregnancy? From miles away? Can he smell when the sisters are having their periods too?
So why is nutty cousin killing? I understand he's a nut, but the story never delved into what happened that made him that way.
