Don't Cry by Beverly Barton

Nowhere To Run

The crime scenes are horrifying: the victims arranged with deliberate care, posed to appear alive despite their agonized last moments and the shocking nature of their deaths.

No Place To Hide

Chattanooga grief counselor Audrey Sherrod moonlights for the local police. It's clear to her, and to Special Agent J.D. Cass, that the murders are the work of a deranged serial killer. At first, the only link is the victims' similar physical appearance. But then another connection emerges, tying them to a long-ago series of horrifying crimes Audrey hoped would never resurface--crimes that hit all too close to home.

No Time To Cry

Each grisly new discovery proves the past has not been forgotten, and the worst is yet to come. Audrey went looking for the truth and she's about to find it. . .and it will be more twisted and more terrifying than she ever imagined. . .

Her traumatic childhood has turned Audrey Sherrod into a strong caring adult. She is a counselor who works closely with the Chattanooga police; especially helping victims of crime. When a serial killer terrorizes the town, Audrey is brought in to assist; as is TBI special agent J.D. Cass. Audrey dislikes the pompous J.D., but likes his fourteen years old daughter Zoe; to his chagrin his child idolizes the counselor while hating him; though he knows part of the problem is he barely tolerates his offspring. As the homicide count rises, the clues seem to imply someone close to the investigators is involved. Meanwhile J.D. and Audrey overcome their initial disgust to fall in love. However, as a gruesome cold case ties to the present murders, a psychopath must be stopped before the pair can pursue the future. Don't Cry is another wonderful Beverly Barton romantic suspense (see Dead by Midnight). The key to the strong story line is the hooked reader keeps trying to identify the killer before the cop and the counselor can. Audrey is a terrific caring person; perhaps too nurturing. On the other hand the dysfunctional relationship between father and daughter seems real as J.D. and Zoe know neither loves or even likes the other. This is another winner by Ms. Barton.

I read Julia's story before I read this. As I read that one, I thought I would like to read J.D.'s story. I'm sure glad I did. I liked it better than Julia's. Loved the story line. Took a while to guess the killer, but knew all along there was more to it. Really liked the lead characters. Love Beverly Barton. Sorry to hear the bad news about her.

This is one of those books that keep you awake at night because no matter how tired you are you want to keep reading. I can't wait for the second book to come out.

Once you read a Beverly Barton novel, neither rain, nor sleet, nor hail nor snow (nor anything else for that matter) will keep you from reading all of her books.

This was my 1st Beverly Barton book. I enjoyed it so much I can't wait to read more. Great character development. It did not feel as long as it actually was. Plot kept me wanting more.

A rash of serial murders of women left in a rocking chair with a dead baby from childnapping cases 25 years ago. Audrey Sherrod is a grief counselor.whose 1/2 brother was one of the child victims. J.D. Cass is a special agent with the state Bureau of Investigation. His teenage daughter, I forget her name, who he didn't know he had, has been living with him the past year since her mother died. That pretty much sums up the 468 pages. There was no character development in the entire book, they were all cardboard & Audrey was just flat old unlikeable. Audrey was a cold, prissy, sanctimonios woman. Absoultely no chemistry bertween Audrey & J.D.. None! Zero! Zilch! They didn't even like each other for most of the book. I'm not sure why Hart was even in the book. Tamara Lovelady? What kind of name is that? I couldn't help but chuckle everytime I read it, hard to take her seriously. Why was it that the only people working on these murders were two cops and J.D.? By the third murder there would already be a task force in place. All through the book were things such as every street name of a route somebody took. Or the kind of car one of the victims had "bought used last winter" and her Walmart purse. Then really stupid stuff. Audrey makes a pot of coffee. J.D. takes a sip of the "fresh, hot coffee". If she just made it of course it's fresh & hot! Duh! This is one of those books I wouldn't even recommend getting from the library. I think there might be a sequel but if so I'm steering clear!

This is an excellent thriller and a good mystery that is sure to keep anyone involved. I thought many many times that I knew who the bad guy was. The action kept me engrossed into the late night hours and the ending made me anxious to know what happened after that. I made a good guess about who the killer was, and was correct, early on but that didn't damage my enjoyment of the ending. Barton threw a twist in there that made my jaw drop and I never saw it coming in a million years.

J.D Cass of the Tennessee Investigation Bureau is assigned to a case of a recently murdered woman who is found in holding the skeleton remains of a baby. Soon, It is determined that the child was one that was abducted over twenty years ago. When another woman is found the same way, Cass has two separate cases to deal with and many questions to answer. Set in Chattanooga, Beverly Bark has written an intense thriller with a definitive cast of characters and enough suspense to keep me quite enthralled.
