I was pulled in from page one. There's excellent suspense, hot attraction, and a good storyline. I really enjoyed this read and the level of crazy that Linda Wisdom created in the character. It's a good read that I would highly recommend.

Josh is a district attorney who has a secret admirer, or stalker. Depends on your definition or the word stalker. At first she sends him flowers ever week and occasionally breaks into his house and cleans it. There hasn't been a house alarm system she can't break. (I wish someone would break into my house and clean it...but moving on.) Josh never seems to have a girlfriend more than a few months then something happens and she breaks up with him telling him he has done strange things he didn't do. He is puzzled by what is going on, but despite using a detective and keeping everything they can't figure out who his friendly stalker is. Then Josh meets Lauren who is the sexy new medical examiner. Josh starts to see himself having more than a fling with Lauren but his stalker just doesn't seem to see it that way. The incidents start to escalate including putting glass in Laurens face wash. Lauren has secrets of her own, such as her ex husband the detective in LA. The stalker threatens to expose Laurens secrets and all of a sudden the incidents escalate and Josh fears for Laurens life. Great book, loved that the author had you thinking about who the stalker is. Just when you think you have it figured out you are thrown for another loop. I was provided a copy of this book for my honest opinion.

Liked it. This story was well written and told in an engaging manner. Though the author tried to bury the villain we pretty much know her identity from she was introduced, but that did not matter, as I was still intrigued every time I dipped inside this villain's head. Lauren our leading lady was also a pretty cool character. Very straightforward, strong and did not take BS from anyone. I really liked that. I think the only thing she did to peeve me off was rushing to the rescue in the end. Errrm no...I did not find that realistic. She had a cop on hand that could have taken care of the issue. Josh was a sweet guy and I really liked him. Now I did not feel much in terms of the romance. Even when it was there I felt a little baffled. There was no intensity, no need, and that was a bit of a let down for me. I also couldn't figure out why they didn't simple install hidden cameras in both Josh and Lauren house to catch this stalker who kept breaking in over and over playing nasty tricks. Overall, it was a nice read and I will look for more from this author.

This was a great book. I did guess who the ultimate villain was, but her reasoning wasn't what I'd thought it was, so that was awesome. First - I really REALLY enjoyed the fact that it was the hero that had a stalker, rather than it being the heroine as so often happens. He's frustrated, getting a little uneasy as the stalker ramps up their obsession, and determined not to just ignore it/hope it goes away. Ahh, Lauren. Moved to the middle of nowhere to get away from a bad reputation (completely undeserved, thanks to her jerk of an ex) and because she notices Josh, abruptly she's in the cross-hairs of Josh's stalker. Still, she doesn't let that stop her and in fact she throws herself into helping him find the stalker (of course that's because she doesn't really want to die and wants Josh). The romance between these two grows nicely and we have some angst over whether they SHOULD get involved because of the looming stalker issue. The resolution was completely satisfactory for me and I was rooting for them all the way. The secondary cast of characters was nice and hopefully we'll see more of them in future books from Ms. Wisdom. Glad I read it. Four out of five gargoyles for me! Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

ADA Josh Brandon is a fierce advocate for laws that protect women from violence and abuse. He goes the extra mile. Is that why he is now being stalked? This woman wants him all to herself. She is dangerous and her crimes are escalating. Any woman that he shows an interest in is in danger. When he and Medical Examiner Lauren Hunter meet, the sparks fly. He's attracted and everyone knows it. Now she's a target. Can they find who is doing this before someone dies? Josh is a free-spirit who is passionate in his beliefs. His childhood trauma makes him who he is. He won't back down. Lauren is such a feisty, smart woman. The brutality she experienced is behind her. It won't define her as a person. Linda Wisdom has written a well told suspense novel that kept me guessing until the very end. With so many suspects the tension kept increasing. I couldn't put the book down until I knew who the stalker was. The characters were well written and the plot was gripping. Double Jeopardy is a powerful story.

He’s exactly what she needs…and everything the other woman wants. Assistant District Attorney Josh Brandon has made a life of helping women escape violence and abuse in his small desert town outside Los Angeles. But in doing so, he’s gained himself a new admirer who refuses to be ignored. She sends flowers. Leaves phone messages. Everywhere Josh goes, she goes, too. And when he meets Lauren, the gorgeous new Medical Examiner, his stalker takes notice. Lauren Hunter swore off men after an attack led to her scandalous divorce from an LA detective. But she hadn’t counted on Josh, the sexy cowboy assistant DA she meets when she escapes to the dusty old town. He’s exactly what her damaged soul needs…until the threats begin. Falling in love was never the plan, but as Josh and Lauren butt heads over a case, their arguments turn from heated to hot. But someone is determined to come between them. Someone whose rage is growing. And she won’t stop her attacks until Josh and Lauren are separated forever. Review: I have to say I enjoyed this story, but I guessed who it was early in the book.  I thought the Author did a good job of trying to throw off suspicion onto other characters and doubted my first instinct once. The Author is very good at getting you into the story and held my interest with an engaging story and the hero and heroine.  The stalker story line is very timely, very well done and realistic.  The only thing I thought of was why did they not set up hidden cameras in their houses? but that is me watching too many Criminal Minds episodes. Josh and Lauren are perfectly suited for one another, both are smart, funny, caring and driven.  Their romance starts out slow and builds on the chemistry that is tangible between the two of them.  Now, I would consider this a sweet romance, the intimate scenes are very tame if you are looking for more spice.  I thought both of their back stories really added to get an overall picture of where they were coming from. Enjoyed this story and would definitely pick up by this Author again. 3.5Stars

This book is a great read. Lauren and Josh story is that sometimes love hits you when you least expected.

This wasn't one of my favorite books. The overall story was good, a fatal attraction stalker scenario, but it didn't flow very well. The banter between the H/h was a bit silly at times. I also felt the ending was a bit anticlimactic, we were never really told Josh was fixated on by the stalker.
