Review

One night. Two bullets. Three runaways.
Addy Michaels, living a cautious life on a Washington State forgotten back road, thinks she's safe--that the past and its corpses are long buried. Surely after fifteen years the cops have quit looking for the street kids believed to have kidnapped a baby and killed their prostitute foster mother, Belle Bliss.

Addy couldn't be more wrong.


The cold case is made hot again, when the missing child's grandmother hires renowned profiler Cade Harding to find her grandson. Cade discovers that all roads lead to Addy. But a twisted killer follows in his professional footsteps--on the hunt for anyone who can tell the truth about killing Bliss.

Cade plans to find Addy and turn her in. He doesn't plan on an attraction that skews his judgment and puts both their lives at risk.

This is a vivid, fast-paced romantic suspense novel. Definitely a page-turner. It's also refreshing to see a full-length novel of 299 pages offered on Kindle; so many of these books are much too short to give me my money's worth! Considering the value given, it doesn't bother me at all that's it's been published previously.

This is a good story filled with lots of thrills, surprises, and suspense. Those were also my thoughts the first time I read it-yes indeed this is a reprint masquerading as a new story. I've said it before but I truly resent being tricked into spending not a small amount on a book I've already read. That said the story is a good one and if you haven't read it before you will enjoy it.

While romantic suspense is not my usual genre (as well as the price tag) I took a chance on Killing Bliss. Well, it's 2:00 a.m. and I just finished it. If I'm willing to stay up that late because I can't stop reading then it's safe to assume that the book is a winner. I especially enjoyed the character development of Abby, Cade and Beauty that made them "real" people in a bad situation. And then there's the mysterious Gus who is central to the story.

I don't know if there is a book planned for Gus's story but I certainly hope so. Definitely going to check out the other titles by this author.

This was an interesting story with suspsense and a good villian. The premise of a man looking for someone who had been missing for years was good. There were a number of key characters that contributed to the story. I would read the author's books again.

It has been several years since I have read anything by this author. I don’t know how I could have missed this series since Killing Bliss (The Bliss Legacy, Book 1) is a reissue by E.C. Sheedy. Believe me, time has not changed this story from being a great one from an accomplished story teller.

How could I have forgotten that E. C. Sheedy could write such totally riveting, page-turning stories? Killing Bliss is no exception. It has an exciting plot with enough hints as to the true murderer that the reader is not surprised but there are other very, very surprising twists to the story. It is heavy on the suspense and by today’s standards light on romantic details. There is no crude language to describe sex which is so much the vogue these days. In fact, I found that to be a refreshing.

The characters are fleshed-out, well developed with the ability to do good and bad, turning this story into a psychological thriller as much as it is a cold case/ missing child investigation. While all loose ends are neatly tied up at the conclusion, I couldn’t help but want to know more about Gus.

A very fine read, a very fine read indeed.

I got this book discounted and was lucky to have had the chance because I found one of my new favorite authors!! This book is completely captivating and well written. I have read a few reviews that said it was an "easy read" I'm not sure why there reviewers think the way EC Sheedy put the words in this book together was "easy" but they were certainly well put together and mysterious enough to keep me up way passed my bed time to finish it!!
I am happy to find out Sheedy has a number of other books I can read, can't wait to delve I to another of her stories.
Normally I'm a murder mystery horror type of girl, however the murder mystery/ love story that goes on in this book were just amazing. The intimate, and very sexy. Worth the money and the read for sure, get this book!!

This was a thoroughly enjoyable romantic suspense book. It was weighted more towards the suspense, but the romance was a strong component. The hero and heroine were very sympathetic and likeable, as were the supporting characters. The villains were easy to hate. One was overtly evil and made no pretence of being anything but evil. The other was more despicable because he contributed to great suffering through both his actions and inaction, while still believing he was a good person.

The plot held together well and the story was generally fast paced. As the synopsis indicates, the plot deals with what happened years earlier to three teenage foster children and one infant and the effects that resulted from it. In addition to dealing with the personal toll that experience had on their lives, the protagonists are faced with current threats from enemies from the past. One protagonist remains a mystery, but the author contrasts the effects the abuse had on the heroine with that of her foster sister. While no rapes are depicted, there are discussions about rapes that happened to characters and there are threats of rape.

Despite the dark subject matter, the overall tone is hopeful and optimistic. This is a romance, so we know there will be a happily ever after for the hero and heroine. Beyond the happy conclusion to the romance, however, there is a sense of redemption and of second chances. There is the sense that while life is not always perfect and we don't always have a happy outcome in every aspect of our lives, there is still love and happiness to be found.

There were a couple of brief, mild sex scenes, so those who want hot and those who want clean are warned.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes well written romantic suspense books. This one was highly entertaining and kept me engaged and turning virtual pages, well into the wee hours of the night.
