Kill and Tell (John Medina Series #1) by Linda Howard

Family secrets and murder converge in this captivating and suspenseful romance from New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard.

Some secrets need to be told...

Still reeling from her mother's recent death, Karen Whitlaw is stunned when she receives a package containing a mysterious notebook from her estranged father, whom she has barely seen since his return from the Vietnam War decades ago. Then, a shocking phone call: Karen's father has been murdered on the gritty streets of New Orleans.

Even if they lead to murder....

For homicide detective Marc Chastain, something about the case of a murdered homeless man just doesn't add up--especially after he meets the victim's daughter. Far from the cold woman he expected, Karen Whitlaw is warm and passionate. She is also in serious danger. A string of "accidents" have shaken Karen to the core, and forced her into the protective embrace of the charming detective she vowed to resist. Together they unravel a disturbing story of politics, power, and murder—and face a killer who will stop at nothing to get his hands on her father's secrets.

Many romances are not like our actual lives, okay? I mean, the cops I've been ticketed by were in no way similar to our favorite Chief of Police in "Open Season." More's the pity. And I CAN believe that Karen fell for Marc Chastain so quickly. With her mother's recent death, then having to travel to New Orleans to deal with identifying her estranged father's body, and THIS MOUTHWATERING SOUTHERNER takes charge to assist her with making Dad's funeral arrangements? Heck, I'm not under any of that stress and Marc hasn't given me a shoulder to cry on and I'm already in love with the guy. I had a friend in college who met and married her husband within a week. They were in their late 20s/early 30s and had two kids when she went back to University to get her degree and I almost had to wear a flame-retardant suit whenever I was in the same room with 'em. No icky PDA, but just that much chemistry between them. So yes, you and I may not have experienced what Karen and Marc do but it DOES happen. This drama and romance includes some education about snipers, Viet Nam, nursing, first aid, and survival. It was exciting and heart rending and very real.

I fell in love with both the hero and the heroine. I just liked who they are. how they relate to each other and how they THINK. This is a book I have owned for a long time. I put it on my nook to have when i am in the mood. I have never read a Linda Howard I did not like, most are on the shelf and when I just need a laugh or a cry I grab one. Happy reading!!.

I don't like it when a book is re-published with a "new" published date, and nowhere does it give you that warning in the descriptions, but this book is a few years. Good book, love reading Linda Howard, but people are being misled by the 2010 publish date. Can't remember the orig pub date. I want to say in the late 90's, not sure. I'm sure someone out there knows the orig date. The "John Medina Series, book 1" is new though, looking forward to reading more about this character. Just hope the series has never been published before lol.

If you like suspense and romance, this book is a must read. The storyline is good and the attraction between the two main characters is electric. I could not put it down. The plot twists made it a real page turner.

This is one of the first Linda Howard books I ever read and just got me hooked!! When I see a new book out by Linda, I just automatically pick it up without knowing what it's about! Very good characters and good story line.

Linda Howard is great. This story has a wonderful plot with likable characters. Once I start it, I can't put it down. A must read.

Another stunning Linda Howard suspenseful romance. I love all these characters - all masterfully drawn, the hero and heroine are especially sympathetically created. Ms. Howard has a remarkable talent in creating and weaving together both romantic sizzle and suspenseful tension. Kill and Tell is some of her best evocative writing - I could feel the steaming hot mugginess of New Orleans, see the facial expressions on Marc, and picture a midnight dance to a slow blues sax. Hugely rewarding and gratifying.

Very, very good story.  Such a shame he is so concerned with firm breasts but as she ages, she can always get implants to keep his interest.

I love most of Linda Howard's stories. This one doesn't disappoint. She introduces John Medina, the main character in All The Queen's Men, but the plot in this book catches your attention quickly and holds it. While neither Karen nor Marc are "warm and fuzzy" characters, I really did like them. This is one of L.H's older stories, so make sure you don't already have it before purchasing it. But it is worth a reread!

OK. This is a problem I havr had with Linda Howard before. The love story moves so fast that it is LITERALLY unbelievabke. Marc met her the first day, didn't like her, thought he misread her and decides he is going to have a long distance serious relationship with her in only a few hours. The next day, he is upset bc he could not hold her when she cried the night before, was completely sure of her, and vowed to always be there to holdnher in the future. Seriously? It is page 90 and I am not surenif I want to continue. Some of her books are so awesome I wantnto re-read. And some make me want to laugh at the romance part.
