Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Lisa Jackson keeps both the romance and suspense sizzling in Hot Blooded. Popular late-night radio host Dr. Samantha Leeds has a fan who'd like to love her to death...literally. The first time that Samantha received a threatening phone call as the body of a murdered prostitute was discovered in the New Orleans French Quarter, it seemed like pure coincidence. But then it happened again, and again, and the danger became clear. Now Dr. Sam has to face the fact that some Hot Blooded killer is out to get her -- and no one knows who it is. The police are convinced it's someone close to Sam. And Sam has to wonder about her mysterious new neighbor, Ty Wheeler, a handsome, sexy stranger who knows all too much about her. Could Ty know Sam's darkest secret, the one that someone has decided she must die for?

    PAGE TURNER!!!

    Late night radio psychologist Samantha Leeds is drawn into a serial killers web when she starts receiving threatening letters and phone calls from a listener who goes by the name of John. John is actually a psychopath who holds Sam responsible for the death of a teenage girl who called into her show in Houston a decade earlier, and Sam was not able to reach her. In order to get Sam to repent, John strangles several hookers with a deadly rosary.<BR/>She gets involved with Ty, her sexy neighbor, and unbeknownst to her, he has sought out Sam with plans to use her for his own research to probe into the teen's death. When they start sleeping together, Ty realizes he has crossed the line, but fears that if he tells her the truth, she will hate him.<BR/>Working with NOPD Detectives Rick Bentz and Rueben Montoya to investigate the crime, Sam's ratings start to flourish with each phone call from John. As they race against the clock to learn John's real identity, Sam is not sure if she can trust those closest to her, including her estranged brother, her assistant, and the station owner, who wants to capitalize on John's presence for the ratings bonanza it has become.<BR/>This slick and fast-paced thriller tosses out so many possible baddies, that readers will be guessing until the very end. Fast pace, good read, pager turner. You will not be disappointed.

    I love Lisa Jackson!

    I find Lisa Jackson very easy to read, which I appreciate since I tend to read before bed. This book was one of my favorite mystery thriller that I have read in a long time. It is set in New Orleans and has everything I enjoy in a book; some mystery, intrigue, romance, as well as a serial killer. What I have enjoyed most about this particular series is that is it linear, and follows each of the characters, but it is never the "same-old." Given, there are some coincidences that would never happen in "real-life" but that is the fun of literature, right?

    Eh-- not bad, not great, just okay

    In one word, "eh". That's what this book was for me. It wasn't bad, and it wasn't that great. It was just "okay".

    The characters weren't that well developed. I didn't really connect with them or "like" them that much. Probably the character I liked most was Detective Bentz.

    What I really disliked was whenever the book would switch to the murderer's viewpoint. It just seemed...I don't know...childish? That's not quite it. It just wasn't believable to me. I was left with the feeling that the author was just writing this character based on a bunch of stereotypes from other thriller/killer stories. That's not what I'm looking for with a book like this. I want a character that makes me shiver and hide under the covers. This didn't do it for me. The character was too simplistic, with no real depth, and I found myself kind of bored with him.

    And to make matters worse, the ending just sort of fizzled for me and seemed kind of unrealistic.

    So, "eh". Maybe I'll give the second book in the series a try and see what I think about that. My one likable character Detective Bentz makes a reappearance in Cold Blooded, and I would like to give author Lisa Jackson another try or two.

The plotting and story line kept me intrigued from start to finish. I high recommend this book. Accolades for Hot Blooded. Heading out to get more Lisa Jackson

    great book

    Lisa Jackson hasn't disappointed me yet and this is one of her best. I read a lot of the detective series and usually I can figure out the ending. Lisa always surprises me and includes some fascinating twists and turns.
