Blindside was a great book that really kept my attention. From the very first page, it was hard to put the book down. From the relationship between Savich and Sherlock to the kidnapping of Sam, the action was non -stop and never boring. The writing, although a lot of people seem to be criticizing it, was beyond great. Catherine Coulter is a truly amazing writer and one of my all-time favorite authors. In the very first sentence of Blindside, ¿It was pitch black¿, she caught my attention. By then end of the first paragraph, you are hooked. By the end of the first page, you will never want to put the book down again. This is definitely my favorite book of hers and I can¿t wait to read the rest of her novels. The constant surprises make the book even more exciting and the many unexpected twists make it intriguing. You never know what is going to happen next and believe me it is not predictable at all. I don¿t want to ruin the book for anyone, but I strongly suggest reading it! My favorite books are FBI thrillers, so I may be kind of partial to it though. I love how Coulter worked the romance into all of the action¿. It made the book even more spectacular! The romance also makes it appeal to a larger portion of readers. Throughout the entire book your mind is trying to figure out why Sam was kidnapped in the first place, who the serial killer is, and how Savich and Sherlock¿s relationship will turn out. And I will tell you now, the end is not a disappointment. If you are looking for a book full of action and romance that will without a doubt keep your attention, then this is the book for you!

I buy every book by Catherine Coulter that I can find. I was a little disappointed in this book. I didn't care for the way it jumped from the murders of math teachers to the kidnapping of Miles son, Sam. Dillon Savich and Sherlock, as always, make for enjoyable reading so I kept at the book until the end. Still a big Catherine Coulter fan even though I was disappointed in this book.

    pretty good... not GREAT

    I actually enjoyed this book. It drew me in instantly, and I couldn't put it down until I was about a third of the way through. The way in which she writes dialog is a bit clumsy though, and it rambles. There are many instances where the dialog should have been broken up into different paragraphs, to really get an idea of where the characters were going with their thoughts. The climax of the story seems to happen a little soon...but the rest of the story is somewhat decent.

    Ok read

    This was the first book I've read by Catherine Coulter. I didn't quite understand why there were two story lines, but I still enjoyed it. It was a little predictable that Katie and Miles would end up together, but I would read other books by her.

    Good up to a point

    The story was good up until the Reverend's house burned down. Then it just lost it focus. The author wandered around trying to find an ending. Why did Sherlock and Savich have to have a separate story line - just to get previous readers to read this book I'm guessing. I would not recommend the last part of this book to anyone. The first part of the story I would recommend.

    Somewhat Disappointing

    I'm a great fan of Savich and Sherlock, but was a bit disappointed in this book. Too many plot lines that went nowhere and a too quick wrap up to the math teacher murders. There is this huge jump from the last chapter to the Epilogue that left a lot of loose ends, i.e. Miles's sister, Cracker. The book ended so quickly I went back to see if I had missed something. It's as if Ms. Coulter got tired of writing this book and just wanted to end it quickly to get it out of the way.

    Just to get something published.

    I have been used to a certain quality in the Sherlock and Dillon books. This was certainly lacking - had a hard time finishing. It was like I was too dumb to read a complex plot or big words. Sometimes I think Catherine Coulter is actually two writers. One who can come up with something like Beyond Eden and then there's her recent regencies (ugh). This reads like one of those regencies. What a dissappointment to an eagerly awaited book!
