    Read

    I have read good and bad from Ms. Palmer. This is not just bad, it is stupid. What. Kilraven would not recognize his own phone number? Harley thought he could take Alice to his father's house and she would not connect the names? It took her long enough, bye the way. And she is a criminal investigator? Heaven help us if the ones in real life are anything like her. You have to get better Diana. You can't get any worse.

    The Worst

    This book was a dud. The stilted conversations Alice had with any man was stupid. Asking guys she just met to marry her and continuing this topic with every male she comes into contact with is awful. Also, when she sees a hot guy, she calls him a "dish"? Diana is writing like an old lady.
    My last book of hers I will ever purchase.

    Boring Story

    I love Diana Palmer, and I buy her books as soon as they come out. I was waiting to see what she would do with Harley's character. In this book she did nothing. He was boring and so was the female lead. Alice appeared in other stories as a side character, and she should have stayed as one. Usually in Diana Palmer's stories you can see a build up of a romance and you are routing for the characters to get together. Not this time, who cared about Harley or about Alice. Harley came across so differently from how he was portrayed in other novels. He seemed to be hungry for any scrap of attention his boss gave him. Alice's character was just boring.

    In short, do not waste your time reading this book. If the book were to be published at all, it should have been part of another novel with as little said about these characters as possible.

    Don't bother wasting your time....

    I first want to say that I am a Diana Palmer fan. I have read several of her books throughout the years & I really love her Long, Tall Texan series. If her story comes out in hardcover, I always buy it as a hardcover during the first week the book is released.

    This paperback, however, was a complete waste of my time. The dialogue was trite and the characterization of the hero & heroine was one dimensional. Harley and Alice are two main characters that should have remained as side characters. Their romance was utterly unbelievable as they declared their love after knowing each other only a few weeks.

    Where was the conflict between the hero and heroine that is a signature trait for a Diana Palmer book? This story seemed to be some kind transitional bridge that sets up Kilraven's story. How can you have a murder that is a significant arc of the storyline and not be given a resolution to this crime? It would have been better if the murder in this story was introduced in Kilraven's story and Ms. Palmer had forgone writing The Maverick.

    My rating of one star is generous by far.
