When Jeff is found dead at the base of a cliff, Belinda knows something is amiss. She finds it hard to concentrate on it, however, because of the heat emitted by Bennett Tate, an ex-cop turned event security expert, who is asked by a friend on the local police force to keep an eye on her—a task he finds most pleasant.
Things go from bad to worse, and Belinda finds herself the target of some weird attempts on her life, her brother accused of murdering Jeff, and an old classmate still carrying a grudge over something that is ten years in the past.
You might assume Cliffhanger by Amy Saunders is one of those books that ends on a cliffhanger, with many—or at least the main—issues unresolved. Wrong. The author wraps everything up nicely. Turns out, the title refers to the situations the main character constantly finds herself in.
One complaint about the book. The author uses characters names frequently, and I do mean frequently. Belinda’s name opens the first two paragraphs, and I stopped counting how many times her name was used in that chapter at ten—it was more. It’s nice to know which character is which, but there has to be a better way than using their name; three or four times in one paragraph is way too many. At that frequency it’s not informative, it’s intrusive.
So, here’s a book with a fascinating couple of main characters, the requisite volume of sparks flying between them, and a fairly interesting plot—marred by names, names, names. I give it three stars, and cross my fingers that this author—who shows great promise—will notice this and institute corrective measures in future books.
A death discovered after the reunion of a person who Belinda once could have had a relationship with, brings back memories and questions not only about his death but also about the death of a friend 10 years earlier.
We have a story of five friends who enjoyed sailing during high school, of which one died on a sailboat, two friends who he was sailing with at the time, and his current at the time girlfriend and her brother, who was not with them at the time. And then there was the former girlfriend who wasn't willing to let go that also should be included as one of the suspects.
When first starting this story I wasn't sure if I would like or not. The story start slowly, but peaked my interest in the second chapter, after that I had a hard time putting it down.
The only major complaint I have is Amy needs to find more euphemism for describing Bennett as something other than "hot". That got old after the fifth time. This was a well written story with nicely developed characters.
