Sleepwalker by Karen Robards

Cops and robbers don’t mix

It’s not that Micayla Lange is afraid of the clinking she hears coming from the first floor of the empty McMansion she’s housesitting for her uncle Nicco. She’s a cop, after all. It’s just that finding out her boyfriend was cheating on her was enough drama for one night. Now she’s alone on New Year’s Eve, wearing flannel pajamas and wielding a Glock 22 as she zeroes in on the unmistakable source of the sound: Uncle Nicco’s private office.

Jason Davis steals things for a living, so unexpected developments are a natural part of the job. Getting caught red-handed by a hot, pigtail-sporting police officer in what is supposed to be a gangster’s deserted house is just one more twist in the game. Kind of like finding incriminating photos in Nicco Marino’s safe, only to discover the cop—and the security cameras— have gotten a real good look at his face.

Unfortunately for Mick, she also got a good look at the damned pictures. Her “uncle” might love her like family, but if he knows she’s seen evidence that implicates him in the murder of a city councilman, she doesn’t like her chances. Which is why she’s having a hard time reconciling her professional instincts with what she is rapidly concluding is an inescapable fact: She’s about to help a criminal get away with a suitcase full of stolen money. And she’s going with him.

Mick and Jason’s race for their lives hurtles them through the dangerous Michigan wilderness on speedboat and snowmobile. As their adventure heats up and their enemies close in, Mick is torn between her duty to the force and the combustible passion engulfing her and her unlikely partner in crime. She’ll have to turn Jason in sooner or later . . . if they survive. But will they ever get a second chance at love?

I wasn¿t sure that I would like Sleepwalker because I am not a big fan of books where the main characters are on the run through the book. Boy was I wrong about this one. This book will keep you on your toes with suspense from beginning to end. Micayla (Mike) Lange is a cop spending New Years at her Uncle Nicco¿s house, when she wakes up after a nightmare. She is about ready to go back to sleep when she hears an odd noise. When she goes to investigate it, she walks into a crime scene. Jason Davis sees Mike and knows the plan has gone sour. Over the next few minutes, Mike sees pictures that changes her life as she knows it. Forced to make a run for it together, the two are in deep trouble with their lives in danger and not a lot of resources. The trust issue looms large between them which isn't good when you are trying to outrun people who want to kill you. Ms. Robards does a great job keeping the suspense level high throughout the book. The chemistry between Mike and Jason is hot but in a sense somewhat forbidden. Mike is a cop and an honest one to boot, so the reader wonders how a relationship will work between the two characters. It is a romantic suspense book so you know that a romance will develop. I kept wondering how this was going to be resolved and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. There are twists and a big red herring before it all ends. I started the book and couldn¿t stop. A great new book from one of my favorite authors!

As someone else wrote, this book took too long to get to the point. Most of the book is following Mick and Jason as they hide/run away. The plot sounded interesting which is why I bought the book. I only finished it to say I read the whole thing before I wrote this review. The book dragged on and only peaked my interest the last 50 pages. Even then it felt forced and a bit like she had to figure out how to end our misery. How do you write a book with the threat of a villain and never actually introduce him in the story? Do not waste your time or money on this book. Karen Robards has many other books that are better written.

I am a big fan of Ms.Robard's work, however this one left me asking myself if she really wrote it. I was waiting for this book to come out and as always was very excited when i finally got my hands on it, but I was quickly disappointed once i began reading. I had to actually push myself to finish it which is never the case with this author. I agree with the other review that it seemed very predictable, and granted if you've read enough of romance novels they all seem to be predictable but never to this degree. I kept waiting for the part where i would say OK WOW but unfortunately it never came. Everything felt rushed, there was really no chemistry between the two main characters and their relationship even in the end seemed kind of shallow. And most of all I really didn't not like the female character. It honestly got a little annoying about how she's a "cop". Hopefully her next book will be more like classic Robards.

I hadn't read any of Karen Robards' books before, and generally avoid buying a book from an author I have never read--too much chance of being disappointed. So I appreciated the chance to buy this one at a low price. It was fine, not great and not terrible. The pacing (so much on the run in such a short time) seemed a little manic, but given the context of the story, I could understand why there was no chance to let the characters relax. The characters were likeable, not too arrogant as sometimes occurs in opposites-attract stories. Had to suspend disbelief that Mick could still function as long as she did wearing PJs in the snow--have you been in a Michigan winter??? Given that so many reviewers opined that this is not one of her best books, I will probably try another one by this author.

I started reading with some trepidation, but I was pleasantly surprised. She paints a vivid picture with lots of details, which can get annoying with some books, but not this one. Plenty of action and plenty of passion, it was a good way to spend an evening!

Overall, it was not a bad book. A little slow at points, but it was stilled packed with action.
