I always enjoy Kris's books, but this one had me on the edge of my chair. A young budding archaeologist has arrived in the American Southwest to do research for her degree. The site offers a great opportunity for her research. She is recovering from an attack and her boyfriend has deserted her. She needs to pick up and learn to take charge of her life again.

In the process she meets two very attractive men. She wonders if she can ever trust a man again. Because of counseling, she is able to accept a date from both men. One turns out to be a good decision and the other a bad one.

In the process of digging around and dealing with the new men in her life, she comes across evidence that drug smugglers are using the canyon for drug drops.

She gets into plenty of trouble. I love the fast paced action of this book. I like the characters and especially the setting.

It's a good fast read.

Kris Bock's WHISPERS IN THE DARK had a lot more depth than I usually expect from a romantic mystery. Kylie Hafford experienced a trauma in her old life in Boston. She takes an archaeological job in Colorado to try and move on from it and from her ex-fiance, but it's proving more difficult than she thought. The setting of the story was absolutely alive and gorgeous. Good character growth in the story, and I loved that the love connection wasn't insta-love. The mystery part didn't personally offer me too many surprises but was satisfying all the same.

While this may be classified as a "Romance", the adventure/action balanced the romantic aspects very nicely. A mysterious sexy guy, a emotionally wounded main character, drug runners all set in a dynamic southwest setting - great ingredients for a solid story. The main character, Kylie, is a woman who is able to overcome some hefty emotional baggage and become a stronger person. The southwest setting and attention to authentic details will make the reader feel like he/she knows the place once the book is finished. This story has a few twists and turns that catch you off-guard and provide a satisfying finish. Just enough sexy to keep the pages turning without feeling raunchy. This is a well-written, fast-paced romantic adventure story. I'm looking forward to more work by Kris Bock.

In the four-corners area of Utah, Kiley Hartford begins a new life working on a dig with high hopes. Almost immediately, she encounters things that make her ask questions from the men who work the park to the visitors she meets there. When she accepts a date with the wrong person, her life begins quick stepping into trouble.

With an interesting cast of characters, Bock builds a fun romantic suspense around archeology and in an unusual setting complete with romance and bad guys. This book has mystery, romance, fun, action, and suspense told in the first person. If this is your favorite genre, you will definitely find this entertaining.

The first person did not get in the way of the telling of the story or in the way of appreciating the setting. The fact that Kylie had to describe everything because it was new to her let us see her enjoyment of the experience. I'm not a huge first person reader, sometimes the characters get too much into themselves, but I liked the way it took Kylie a long time to let us see the reason for her being so far from home and that she had an issue to overcome. The romance part was a lark, the actual following through of the mystery, the several red herrings, and the twist at the end made for an enjoyable read. The pace and plotting kept me into the story, as there was little down time before we were back into Kylie's life. Fun, fun book!

Whispers in the Dark
By Kris Boch

A young archeological student arrives at a dig at a state park. She is there to study and find what early American food sources were. She is quickly plunged into a mystery that she slowly unravels. Small points of lights appear at night in the canyon, small planes are seen but not identified. When she sits on the canyon ledge there are the whispers. Are they voices of the past or something more sinister? It all becomes clear as she learns more.
KrisWhispers in the Dark Boch describes the desert and sights and you feel like you are there. The story is an enjoyable read and the plot evolves quickly. I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it.

I enjoyed the story. Great tension (especially beginning with about Chapter 20), good plot, good characters--except for one thing. The female protagonist whined much too much--her whining got in the way of the story. But I did enjoy it and would read more of Kris's work.

Liked this story. It was suspenseful to the end. Have been to the area and some of the ruins and had the feeling of revisiting. Some descriptions got a bit wordy but could be skimmed without losing the gist of the story. Limited sex scenes thankfully very tasteful.

The heroine was a TSTL sometimes and she wouldn't learn from her mistakes, she would think "I should go and get help" and then she'd say" no I shouldn't run to someone for help I should be independent" and BAM something really bad would happen . There was some mystery and suspense and no sex scenes:D(A clean romance ?)
When I started this book I thought it was a paranormal romance involving ghosts or time travel, the blurb is one of the worst ever. There wasn't anything super natural in there except a good looking mixed raced male (Filipino & Danish )who looked like native Americans.
