I really enjoyed reading this, it kept me absorbed throughout.The mystery plot is pretty standard for this genre and to be honest it didn't hold my attention. Victims were too nameless, reactions too muted to make me care or shiver. I'm not sure the point of all the clues was even explained. In fact the show-down made me laugh, it got silly rather than dramatic, when the evil-villain shouted 'Stop right there' my reaction was to sing the answering Meatloaf lyrics. Which okay probably says more a [...]
Review to come I couldn't put this down, I was certainly fascinated, but the rating is what it is for a reason. I'll explain *****Really enjoying this so far and am super glad I decided to give it a try :-)!! May the book fulfill its awesome promise!
While I enjoyed the emotional tension between Liam and Detective Thompson, there were just too many questions without answers in my head. (view spoiler)[Was William Thompson's partner in the PD (I never got the confirmation)? How did William (Liam's ex) died? How did Liam got involved with Thompson in the first place? What was really the motive of the villain?? He just rambled on about Samhain but I never got the clear reasons. How did he pick the victims? How did he pick the poems? (hide spoil [...]
3.5 stars - Liam is a psychic who is contacted by spirits who were murdered. After almost nine months, he is still grieving the death of his partner/lover, William. William and Thompson were detective partners, and while Thompson still mourns the loss, he is ready to move on. He has been enlisting the help of Liam, both as a means to help Liam move on, as well as to help solve the recent murders of an apparent serial killer. The victims contact Liam, or he is able to contact them at the scenes, [...]
Cops and psychics, one of my favorite pairings and this didn't disappoint. I can't wait to read more!
Feels a lot like painting by numbers to me, albeit well done. Sorry, this author's style just isn't my thing. After three tries I'm officially giving up now.
I've been reading S.C. Wynne's books since her first release and she just keeps getting better and better. Shadow's Edge was a fun, thrilling ride, with well-developed characters, suspense, the mysterious, and mystery. I will avoid spoilers but what I can say is that I enjoyed this book from the first page to the last and it now ranks in the top tier of my ever-growing S.C. Wynne collection. I cannot wait to read her release in this series, as it is a natural for series fiction.
3 stars, an alright readI did enjoy this book, though you could be wondering why not rate it higher but I'll come to the reasons in a minute. This book I was excited about as firstly I love detective who dunnit books that gets the old clogs moving. This book had a lot of living up to do since the last detective story I've read recently that sticks in my mind anyways was Dal maclean bitter legacy which was brilliant so I was eagerly anticipating this murder mystery book. Unfortunately it didn't q [...]
1.5 rounded up only because I made it through to the end. However this is a real train wreck. It's a shame because it started out well enough but it fell apart between the time flow problems, the non realistic police procedure. just a little research would have helped this so much. the mix up of victims, etc. etc. SMH. Non-romance train wreck is what this is.
This book was interesting and well written. The plot was intriguing and intense and the romance was slow-burn and you never really knew if they would sync up or not. The characters could have been a little more fleshed out and parts of the murder plot were overlooked, but all in all, I thought it was good.
Liam is a psychic who can see the spirits of the dead. His lover and partner, William was a police detective, who convinced Liam to use his gift to help solve cases. William was the only person who could help Liam quiet the voices he heard enough to get some peace and sleep. Unfortunately, William died, and Liam has been in a holding pattern since then. He barely takes care of himself; and to avoid the never-ending grief, he works as much as he can with William's detective partner, Thompson.Thei [...]
Psychic who talks to dead people assists police detective with a serial killer case, but himself becomes a target.I liked the slow buildup of the relationship (very appropriate given that the psychic's previous boyfriend had died and the police detective was the previous boyfriend's bff). I liked the MC. I don't like serial killer stories, and I reallllly don't like when the killer comes after the investigators (it makes me very tense), but the romance here was so sweet that it was worth it.Woul [...]
3.5 stars rounded downThis was good, and I did enjoy the reading experience, but there were just a few too many things that bothered me to give it a higher rating. At times the writing felt a little juvenile; too much was explained, silly little thought processes that any reader could have grasped without it having to be spelled out. It also kind of annoyed me that I had absolutely no clue what any of the characters looked like; while I like to be given a little imaginative leeway, I do need a l [...]
I really enjoyed this book. Mostly. I liked the MCs and I liked their interaction. But there wasn't enough backstory; there was just enough to make me feel like I was missing something. I had to double check to make sure that this was, indeed, the first book of a series. I liked the mystery up to the point where the big bad was discovered. His motives were sketchy to say the least. I wanted to know how he was able to do what he did and I wanted to know why he did what he did. The explanation giv [...]
I enjoyed the heck out of this book. Psychic stories are sort of my go to, and I adore them. My minor quibbles (and the reason for the 4 star instead of 5 star rating) had more to do with the 'insta-love' story between Liam & Thompson. I could understand the attraction, but the fact that Liam starts out the story still grieving William and is in 'love' with Thompson by the end. I think the author would have been better served planting the seeds of attraction (or lust) and allowing it to slow [...]
WilliamGood book. The back story of William is such a key issue through out the book that it would have been nice to see a "prelude" for Williams story Then start 9 months later with the moving on I actually thought I had book 2 of a series at first. Questions about why the Liam was growing weaker and the killer was getting stronger. As a psychice killer is not contained just because he's caught The killer is still a major threat to LiamBook 2 maybe? S.C. focused on the love story line and graye [...]
This is a great novella. It about a psychic and a cop. I luv the slow wooing by Thompson, cop to Liam, psychic. They have the sweetest romance. It also has a great villain and I luv the grittier aspects of the story. The story is tightly written and I highly recommend it. The only thing is I wish it could have been longer. Definitely looking forward to Book 2.
My rating is based solely on the personalities of this couple. This story left me with SO many questions but I loved the interaction and tension between the MC's. Wish it was deeper, more involved (longer?) with their emotions and with the whole mystery killer business. Overall, worth the read even though I felt like I was missing out on a lot of emotional aspects of the overall story.
3.5A decent book, but it doesn't add anything to the basic idea «psychic + cop collaboration» which has been done several times before. I totally agree with Calathea's review.
Really Nice ReadI love a good ghost mystery. Nothing obvious to me in this read, so watching the plot unravel was thrilling. There's a little romance, yes, but nothing heavy on the sexual side. Just an all-around good storyline.
2.5 starsStarted off well, I thought, but then lost me. The emotions seemed forced and the mystery silly.
Audio versionHooked from start to finish. Great narration only improved on already great story so go for the audio if you possibly can.
*2,5 STARSWhile this was an enjoyable read, it didn’t bring anything new to the paranormal detective genre. I liked Liam and Thompson, they made a nice couple. Unfortunately, the conclusion of the mystery was very disappointing. The murderer was very random, his motives for the killings didn’t make sense. Many questions were left hanging, and since it seems this case is closed, I don’t think we’ll ever get anything more from it.The procedures of the case solving were questionable, to say [...]
I read a lot of amazon ebook samples, hunting for combinations of writing styles and characters that intrigue me. I read the Shadow's Edge samplea month ago? At the time my TBR list was too long. So it had to wait. But it stuck with me. Turns out the whole book is like that. It isn't that the murders mystery is so deep and dark, it's that Liam is such an odd character. And since everything's from his perspective, Thompson also seems odd. Some things could've been better, more smoothly worded, pa [...]
Shadow's Edge is a solid, fast developing, mystery romance betweem Liam, a psychic, and homicide detective Thompson. I disliked Liam's emotional state. He didn't pay attention to Thompson until Thompson started to date again. I mean really how can someones emotion change so drastical. Beside that, the criminal case was enjoyable enough just a bit undeveloped.
4.5 Stars!!!Liam has seen dead people since he was a kid and has been helping his dead lover's partner, LA Homicide Detective Thompson with some cases he's been working on with a high success rate. Liam has been grieving for the nine months since the loss of William, unable to move on until Thompson decides it's time for him to start dating again, shaking Liam to his core. Between Thompson dating and the serial killer they're trying to catch, who seems to also be a psychic and more powerful than [...]
Give me a psychic character and I'm there. The author sucked me right in with this murder mystery featuring Liam, a man who sees dead people he doesn't particularly want to see. The elements of the mystery were well done, and the crime solving tactics were interesting and well thought out. The fact that Liam was already friends/working partner with stalwart Detective Thompson set a good backdrop to their relationship and gave plausiblity to the awkwardness and tentativeness they each felt at pot [...]
4.5 Stars! I simply loved this book. Lately it seems like I can't get enough of a good mystery/suspense. Liam is a psychic who is working with Detective Thompson. I have to say ityou know I doI SEE DEAD PEOPLE! Love itlove itlove it!!!! When Liam goes to a scene or basically walks around the city, he can see the dead if they have unresolved issues or what not and they try to get his attention, talk to him and get him to help them. Annoying? You betcha! But aside from all of the detective work an [...]
