Editorial Reviews

Review

La Femme Nikita meets The Horse Whisperer in this superb thriller/romance. --Patti Ann Bengen, The Devil's Dance

Tell Me When It Hurts weaves together the lives of two damaged achievers--Archer, who has lost her daughter through a violent assault, and Connor, who has lost his daughter through passive neglect--each working through loss, despair and, ultimately, redemption. A terrific story. --Amber Ellis, Alta Fay's Allegiance and Running Mad

Equal parts Daniel Silva and Danielle Stee. Clever, well-plotted, with unforgettable characters. This thriller is destined to be a cinematic masterpiece. --Stephen F. Medici, Adverse Selection

OK so I'm writing this just because I think the information given about this book is very misleading and that can be disappointing. When I read the blurb of this book I honestly thought I was getting a kick ass assassin thriller which is not the case, it's more romance and finding ur place and where u fit in life after tragedy takes everything away from u, it's emotional and heartbreaking and even heartwarming! Not really my kind of book overall and there were times I thought about not continuing, however I did finish it and thought it was basically a good read, well written and great characters, I'm just wanting to warn, that if you're expecting an assassin chick taking her revenge on the world, that is not what u are getting! That only plays a very very small part of the book and is only gone into a few times. Overall I didn't mind the book -would never have read it if the blurb had been more accurate, so I suppose there's that- just wish it was more like what i was lead to believe it was about

The book description really does NOT resemble the book at all. It sounds like you'd be meeting a kick-ass assassin; instead you are reading about the thoughts of a woman who cannot get over the loss of her daughter. I was waiting for 200 pages for something to happen, then suffered through the last 100 since I already got so far ... and was still hoping for something to happen! The love story was somewhat intriguing, but just not what I expected.
It's probably a good book for somebody who looks for romance and loves people finding themselves after a tragedy, but if you are looking for suspense with a hint of romance - look somewhere else!

This book couldn't pick a genre, it tried to be all of them and didn't really succeed. It started well, a couple whose only child is murdered and the killer is free on a couple of technicalities. The Mom, Archer, has a chance to rectify that through a secret organization.
Then flash to Archer's past, she is a government trained assassin. So why did she need this organization again? The government has been keeping tabs on her all these years, but they don't know she belongs to this vigilante group?
Either one of these avenues would have made for an exciting book.
But suddenly FLASH we are suddenly in the middle of a cowboy romance. Archer is now divorced, living in a cabin in isolation. Enter handsome cowboy who inherits the property next door and is living in a tent on it while he decides if he will keep it or sell it. He has a truck and a horse trailer but he couldn't afford at least a pop up camper? He rides in to rescue her from the deadly sprained ankle (golly I wonder if he killed a few spiders for her too?) and his planned stay of a couple of weeks turns into months.
I still gave this book three stars. It is well written. The character development was good. I was just disappointed that it bounced around like a ping pong ball between genres and ended up on the romance version.
PREMISE: Good CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: Good STORY DEVELOPMENT: Not good, too many things left unaddressed, no eye for the details of plot.

Plot instantly captures the reader with tragic loss, suspense and drama of one mother's sharp shooting determination. Fast moving and well written, all characters show intimate feelings one can grasp throughout. She cautiously comes out of hiding when she meets her match in her own back yard preserve. Their lives, and their beloved dogs and horses romp in nature's beauty as they grow together. Her carefully drawn out vision takes on the promise for happiness when her actions speak volumes about patience and commitment.

Character development is everything in a romance novel. If the characters do not have believability then the story cannot work. This book has believability. The reader can relate to Archer and Connor because their actions, reactions and feelings ring true to the reader's experiences even if those experiences do not rise to the level of tragedy that afflicts Archer.
This novel has action, romance and believability. Well written and a "good read", it is a tale fit for the big screen. I look forward to more from Ms. Whitehead.

When I read that Tell Me When It Hurts was the 2009 Readers Favorite Honorable Mention Winner for Fiction - General, I wasn't the least bit surprised. I don't know the competition for that but I do know that this novel was one that I truly enjoyed reading. One of the reasons for me was that the author allowed readers to enjoy and watch a new relationship develop--and sex played such a little part... No jumping into bed right away because the book is only so long. LOL

Seriously, it was refreshing to watch a relationship develop slowly while the two characters took their time getting to know each other, to have fun together, and to begin to share about their lives. And they both had heartache in their pasts to keep them just as skittish as their horses could be at times!

And for this couple, Archer Loh especially, there was much in her life that she had to deal with. In order to live with the trauma, she withdrew from her life and bought a cabin up in the hills and woods. Hmmm, that sounds like exactly what I did, and am still living in my cabin!

But Archer had experienced something far worse than most of us. Her young daughter had been murdered...

So Connor, seeing the cabin as simply the house next door, even though he was living in a tent, came knocking on her door, friendly-like...LOL Let's just say that Archer was not ready to invite him in...

But when he was away from his tent, she had discovered that he had brought a horse with him, a pinto that she quickly made friends with and began to visit while he was gone.

Connor owned a sheep farm in another state but was there to check out about 300 acres adjacent to Archer's cabin. He was there to walk the land and see if he would use or sell it.
