Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When Baltimore medical examiner Lucy Trask finds herself at the center of a dizzying swirl of murders in Rose's turn-off-your-cellphone-settle-in-for-the-night page-turner, Trask turns to super-hunk Det. J.D. Fitzpatrick for counsel and protection. The only problem is that in order to get his help—and solve the murders—the reticent ME has to let loose some of her most private secrets. It doesn't matter that Fitzpatrick revs her engine anytime he's near. The good doctor has deep-seated trust issues, some that go back to the incident that may have inspired the current spate of mutilation murders committed by a demonic sadist who won't let go. But as bodies pile up in Trask's morgue, secrets are exposed in more ways than one. Rose (Silent Scream) doesn't allow her luxurious characterizations to get in the way of a wicked good plot that grabs hold and maintains tension from beginning to end. (June)

You Belong to Me - Romantic Suspense at it's Best!!! Title: You Belong to Me Author: Karen Rose Narrator: Marquerite Gavin Length: Unabridged; 16 hours 46 minutes Publisher: Blackstone Audio Published: June 7, 2011 Genres: Fiction; Mystery; Romantic Suspense; Detective and Mystery Stories My Rating: ¿¿¿¿¿ Synopsis: Years ago, a young woman was beaten and raped while onlookers did nothing. Now those witnesses are becoming victims themselves.  Baltimore Homicide Detective J. D. Fitzpatrick has seen a lot of horrific violence, both as a cop and during his deployment in Afghanistan, but nothing like the trail of tortured bodies that are turning up throughout the city. He's up against a brutal killer with a very personal vendetta, and now J. D. is beginning to suspect that his medical examiner may be shielding some crucial evidence linked to the case. Assigned to the murder victims, forensic pathologist Dr. Lucy Trask is intrigued by J. D.'s compassion, but she isn't about to mix work with pleasure. Not while there's a ruthless killer on the loose. And definitely not while she's keeping a dark secret that could connect her to these vicious killings--and put her next on the hit list.  This is the first book in a new series from acclaimed romantic suspense author -- Karen Rose, author of Scream for Me, Die for Me, Kill for Me, and Silent Scream. My Review: Karen Rose has very quickly come to be one of my favorite author's. I've both read and listened to her books and have fallen in love with each format. I listened to You Belong to Me and think that Marquerite Gavin does a phenomenal job of reading Karen Rose's books! As with every other Rose book that I've read, this book just left me dying to start the next one!  I inadvertently read You Belong to Me and No One Left to Tell out of order, but it wasn't too big of a deal! I was still able to follow both books closely without much confusion.  The characters of this book are awesome! I love Lucy and her strong independent personality and JD and Stevie are the team to beat!! Rose does a wonderful job of intertwining the lives of all of her characters together, but still being able to keep them separate!  I think that Rose has found the delicate balance needed for a successful romantic suspense novel. She sure does know how to steam up a room though! But yet, even though she can steam up a room, she doesn't let it overpower the mystery at hand! Rose is spectacular at writing an edge-of-your seat suspense novel, that keeps you guessing at every turn.  I do think that her stories can be lengthy at times, however, even though lengthy, the story does not drag on to the point that it's beat up. Rose makes it work, and work well it does! Overall, I loved this book, and can't wait to get through all of the next book in this (well both) series...Did You Miss Me? I'm sure it'll be just as great as every other book I've read by Karen Rose!

I read all of her books and have yet to be disappointed. It is good not heavy reading. Not really discussion material, but enjoyable mystery.

This is the first of Karen Rose's books I have read. From page one to the end....I was drawn in. Read the entire book in one sitting. A definite page turner. I will read all of her books. Already preordered her next book coming out on June 5, 2012. Fantastic, edge of your seat thriller. A must read.

Ms. Rose's You Belong To Me is a masterful blend of suspense and romance. Detective J.D. Fitzpatrick and Dr. Lucy Trask play across the pages in symphonic perfection. The secondary characters of partners, family, and friends add rich, depth and texture to the story. You Belong To Me is Ms. Rose's best book to date.

Karen Rose is a master at weaving psychological scares! I loved escaping away to her tale of thrilling, sexy, intrigue. I bumped all other books for hers at the time. The tale had me coming back for more whenever I had to leave it. Cannot wait for another page turner from her.

Early in the morning while singing along with ZZ Top, Baltimore medical examiner Dr. Lucy Trask jogs. She stops when she notices sexagenarian Mr. Pugh sitting by himself at a chess table. She assumes he wandered out of his apartment so she goes over to help him home only to find the Alzheimer's ailing man dead with his face gone. She calls 911; Baltimore PD Detectives J.D. Fitzpatrick and Stevie Mazzetti lead the inquiry. The shoes are wrong leading Trask to realize the victim is not Mr. Pugh. The victim is identified as Christopher Jones due to cheek implants, but the cops find Jones alive. Lucy realizes the deceased is cosmetic surgeon Dr. Russ Bennett, who she has a history with. Soon other tortured dead are found, some of which the M.E. knows. Lucy wonders if the psychopath is tied to the decades old incident that left her distrusting people. This is a strong police procedural with a deep cast starting with the beleaguered heroine, the cop who she likes but avoids and the amoral killer. Fast-paced with superb twists, readers will relish this terrific tale of an insane predatory killing machine lacking any societal restraints. Harriet Klausner
