It was fate, destiny, an ominous portent that had appeared in her morning horoscope. She could feel it in the bottom of her belly, that deep, hollow sense of impending doom. She could feel it in the. weight of the antique gold bracelet that circled her left wrist with tingling warmth. That was a sure sign. It wasn’t going to matter a bit that she had left Hollywood and moved up the coast to Anastasia-hundreds of miles away from Tinsel Town in more ways than just distance.

I have enjoyed most of the books I've read by Tami Hoag. Generally, they are suspenseful with interesting characters. I am about half way through with this one and I'm really struggling. I don't like any of the characters. We are so bogged down in this ridiculous sexual tension between the two main characters that the murder isn't looking all that important. I am finding myself not caring who murdered the man or why, and I find these two characters quite irritating. And of course they're both gorgeous looking. Even when the murder is being discussed, she's standing too close to him, he reaches out to kiss her, and on and on - it's laughable. So why should we take the murder seriously?
I'm going to try to get through it, then I will complete my review.
I finished the book and it was a struggle. These two are madly in love with each other in about three minutes, but fight it until the end. And by the time I got to the end, I hardly cared who killed whom and why, I just wanted to get it done. It was very unsatisfying.

I read several of Tami Hoag's books and found them somewhat interesting as a summer read. This one is full of sexual-driven forces that have no bearing what-so-ever on the plot. She drags on and on and on to the point that reading the contents on a cereal box would be more intriguing. I'm done with her as an author!

If you like your romance novels full of clichés, stereotypes and predictability, then this is the book for you. That pretty much sums it up. Cannot believe this book was written by the same author who writes clever, twisty, dark plotlines in mysteries. This book is all fluff, no substance. It makes other romance novels look deep. This is fine if you don't want to think too much or you're still 14. And I like romance novels. I also realize there's always going to be a happy ending. But getting there with characters and a plotline that are as cliché as these, in a storyline that's straight as a board right to it's happy ending makes for a boring, uncreative read, IMO. Only glad I was only hoping for something easy breezy for summer vacation reading....and it was a used book and cheap. Will stick with Tami's mysteries. She flourishes there!

Loved this book years ago and loved it when I read it again. Even though this early work of the author is not as intense as her recent works, the feel of the Louisana bayou was spot on. The hero and heroine were great characters.

Fantastic book. My second copy as my original has worn out. Have bought others as gifts and always get rave reviews.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
My thoughts as I read this were: bad things happening to good people and what a mess. I wondered how it would work out, but it was not fun or exciting. Other romantic suspense novels pull me in more. This seemed like "ooh what a bad situation to walk into." The hero is good at fighting bad guys, but instead of feeling good about it, I felt more like "ooh got out of that one." I think what was missing was someone to get excited about or identify with. The hero and heroine were interesting, but that was it. The sex scenes were ok but could have been more emotionally exciting.

The ending felt empty - not enough emotional fulfillment. He had left her "for her own good" and because he wanted to "spend his life suffering." Then all of a sudden he changes his mind. I didn't get to see the process of changing his mind or emotions. The romantic ending felt convenient - like lets wrap this and call it done.

I found it hard to believe that Lucky would drop out of college and join the military because Shelby dated and then broke up with him. I guess it was a way to add more evil to Shelby's character. I was annoyed with Serena for not wanting to believe the worst about Shelby. She kept ignoring Shelby's bad actions and wanting to bond.

I was disappointed about lack of justice for Lucky's evil commanding officer. The author never described what happened to the officer which contributed to the downer feel of the book. I also wanted to know more about Lucky's escape. It might have added something positive.

We also have a case of TSTL - heroine stupidity. Why did she go off alone to meet a bad guy? She intended to take someone with her, but apparently didn't have time to find someone she liked.

There were a lot of Cajun French phrases. I was pleased that the author had a glossary in the back of the book, but it needed to be at the front of the book - or at least a big note in the front saying where it was. I didn't discover it until I was half-way through the book. After that I used it frequently, but I regret not knowing about it earlier.

There is an author's note in the book that states this was her first romantic suspense book. Previously she wrote romantic comedy.

STORY BRIEF:
The Sheridan family owned a sugar cane plantation sitting next to the swamp for generations. Finances have been tight due to recent crop failures. A Texas chemical company wants to buy the land and use it for illegal dumping in the swamp. Grandpa won't sell.

Due to loss of their parents at age 15, Grandpa has been raising twin girls Serena and Shelby. Shelby is selfish and cruel. As a teen she left her sister lost in the swamp as a joke - which lasted for two nights due to bad weather. Serena nearly died. Ever since, Serena has had a phobia of the swamp. Shelby married Mason who wants to run for political office. She needs to sell Grandpa's land for money to finance Mason's campaign and to pay for her own lavish lifestyle. She plans to have Grandpa declared mentally incompetent if necessary. Grandpa leaves the plantation and is currently living in his fishing hut in the swamp. Serena became a psychologist and has a practice in Charleston. She had no idea any of this was going on until she came for a two-week vacation. She wants to visit Grandpa and find out why he left home. The only person available to take her there is Lucky. He takes her in his boat. Grandpa won't leave his fishing hut. Other bad things start happening.

Years ago Lucky dated Shelby for a short while. She was using him to get Mason to marry her. Lucky went into the military and found his commanding officer on the take. The officer caused Lucky to be held prisoner in Central America for a year. Lucky was kept in a dark cell and only taken out to be tortured. Now he lives alone with nightmares and flashbacks. He's sort of a vigilante hero. He stops bad guys from taking food from poor families, and he wants to protect the swamp from ecological damage the Texas company will do.

CAUTION SPOILER (about one of the bad guys):

I was disappointed that Shelby didn't go to jail. She participated in fraud and conspiracy to kidnap. As a result, my theme for this book is "Shelby is never held accountable and never pays the price for her bad actions." Throughout the book Serena would not believe Shelby's evil, and in the end the justice system ignored it as well. I doubt this theme was the author's intent, but I did not like the lack of justice.

A huge fan of Tami Hoag. Not this book thought. Too mushy for ME. I love all her other stuff. Not a fan of this book.
Hate the smoking. Like everything else. Characters that are sloppy housekeepers? Original. No perfect main characters here. Tami writes great dialogue as usual.
