    more from this reviewer

    Walk Away

    I enjoy reading Ms. Johansen but No One to Trust left me wanting...

    a. To toss it out... fast!
    B. To SCREAM!!!
    C. To say,"What the... hay!"
    D. To make sure Iris did in fact write this book???
    E. To use it as tissue to wipe the tears of hysteria from forcing myself to read just one more page.
    F. To lQQk for the VISINE®.
    G.To run naked through the countryside to detoxify my system.

    No One to Trust lacked significance. For me, there was no nitty-gritty. Elena Kyler did nothing to make me care about her life or her situation. Bor~ing!

    I continued reading hoping it would get better. It didn't.

    I just wasted good reading time on babble. I found myself wanting to do other things instead of reading Ms. Johansen's novel. I thought it was more fun to pour honey on myself & sit under a bee's nest.

    Reading is all about perception, so many may enjoy this bunk book, but I enjoyed my time w/ the bees. Buzz~Buzz!

    This was awful

    I have read all of this authors books and was happy to find one I hadn't read, but this was the worst! I felt like I was reading something a high school student wrote! It had no substance, no plot and the characters were very weak. I had to force myself to finish it. I don't recommend this to anyone!

    Go back, it's a trap!

    Sappy dialogue, weak characterization, poor imagery, feeble plot development; how this got published is beyond me. As a big mystery and action adventure fan, I wanted to like this book, I really did, but the author wasn't able to sell it. The characters were stumbling around on a stage filled with cardboard scenery, uttering soap opera lines that sounded like they were being read from cue cards. The characters' emotions were all over the map, running hot and cold within the same paragraph, with no regard to the situation, or what we, as readers, had been lead to believe about the character. They were totally unbelievable. If this were a movie, I'd say that all the characters were honor graduates from 'The William Shatner School of Over-Acting', with apologies to Mr. Shatner. And the plot? Well, it was just plain sad. To keep things moving, unsupported plot devices were being tossed around like there had been a sale on them at the local Wall-Mart. This was my first Iris Johansen novel, and you can bet it will be my last. Run, don't walk away from this one. It's a waste of time.

    I loved the book!

    I was so happy to find out that Galen would be more than a secondary character! I had always thought that he should have his own book. One of Iris Johansens' best works yet! Elena was a great new chararter. Great twists! Captivating and spellbinding!
