“Krentz returns with an intricately plotted romantic suspense novel that satisfies on every level, includes some clever twists with the senior community, and may open the door for a sequel. A terrific read by a stellar author.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“With its fast-paced plot spiked with unexpected twists and plenty of danger, snappy writing infused with tart wit, and a captivating pair of protagonists who could give Bogart and Bacall a run for their money when it comes to creating sexual sparks, Krentz’s latest superbly written tale ticks off every box on a romantic-suspense fan’s wish list.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Fans of bestselling Krentz’s books once again hit the literary jackpot with Secret Sisters as the doyenne of sophisticated romantic suspense serves up another irresistible combination of sharply etched characters, suspenseful plotting, smoldering sexual chemistry, and wonderfully written dialogue that snaps, crackles, and pops with the author's distinctive wit.”—Booklist (starred review)

One of the things I really liked about Max and Charlotte is they are ordinary people. Neither one is “stunningly attractive.” They both have to work to pay the bills. And they both have broken relationships in their past. They have problems, just like everybody else.
Max is definitely the strong, in charge type, but he doesn’t try to tell Charlotte what to do. Probably because he realizes it would be a waste of time. They both consider themselves plodders and use the phrase “one foot in front of the other” to describe themselves.
They are just likable people.
Now, the mystery. All I can say is Good Grief!
I had it figured out half way through the book.
Nope. I was totally wrong.
Then, I decided it was someone else. How could I have missed that?
Nope, that wasn’t it.
And the plot continued to twist and turn. When the mystery is finally solved and all the questions are answered, I had an “oh, yeah” moment. There was nothing that came out of left field. I felt like I should have seen it all along.
And that makes for a great mystery. It kept me guessing, but all the clues were there.
Jayne Ann Krentz is a great romance author. I have been reading her books for years. However, she is also a wonderful suspense writer. I read her books for the romance and humor, but the plots completely grab me.
I haven’t seen anything that says there will be any sequels, but Max is one of three brothers. I really think (hope) we are going to get a trilogy at least.
When All the Girls Have Gone comes out November 29th. Give yourself an early Christmas present, but make sure you have time to read it. You will not want to put it down.
This book was sent to me by NetGalley in return for an honest review.
THE STORY: Charlotte Sawyer is a social director for a retirement community. Charlotte is careful, caution and risk adverse. She was just ditched by her "perfect" fiance. She receives a key and a note from a friend of her stepsister and finds out that her stepsister's friend just died under somewhat strange circumstances. Her own stepsister is unreachable at a "tech-less" retreat and when Charlotte comes to see what the note and key are for, she meets Max Cutler. Max is a private investigator and former-profiler who has come to Seattle after his divorce to build a new life. Max is looking into the death. He and Charlotte partner up to investigate what is going on. The two find themselves in danger.
OPINION: I enjoyed this book while reading it, but I didn't feel that it had the power and memorability of many of Krentz's books. The romance was good and the suspense aspect was interesting with lots of twists, but I didn't walk away thinking I would want to read this book again.
I liked the characters of Max and Charlotte. They are grounded people who are both rebuilding their lives. I thought that they had a good rapport. I did feel the relationship between them grew naturally out of their interactions. I also enjoyed that they are both flawed and there isn't any big drama between them.
The suspense story was twisty and although much of the story was revealed during the book, there were still surprises. Things were not what they seemed to be. As I mentioned, I enjoyed this book but it wasn't a story that I loved so much I would return to it again.
WORTH MENTIONING: I think this book appears to be the beginning of a series.
CONNECTED BOOKS: WHERE ALL THE GIRLS HAVE GONE is a standalone.
STAR RATING: I give this book 3 stars.
Jayne Ann Krentz really ramped up the action and plotting in this one, there's a large cast of interesting characters in this story and at least three distinct plot lines. So, to me, this is anything BUT phoned in!!!
Add to the above all the powerful women who fill the novel who are fascinating in their own right. Powerful women fighting for good. Powerful women friendships. Powerful evil women. Powerful women vigilantes. Average women finding their power. Powerful women doing what they have to in order to to survive. Powerful women in business. Women powerful enough in themselves to allow a man to be great and powerful at what he does without being threatened by it. I wish women were depicted in fiction with this kind of depth more often!
This book was a suspense thriller that was a treat to read.
