    Okay so, I have an issue with the way Lisa Jackson ends her books Or rather, doesn t end them This is yet another example where she spends over 400 pages dragging you along to solve gruesome crimes, everything geared up for the climaxthat NEVER comes Perhaps that isn t accurate You do get to know the who done it, however, it is never completely finished.All of that being said, I enjoyed itup until the last 25 pageswhen it dawned on me that she was once again, not going to end a bo Okay so, I have an issue with the way Lisa Jackson ends her books Or rather, doesn t end them This is yet another example where she spends over 400 pages dragging you along to solve gruesome crimes, everything geared up for the climaxthat NEVER comes Perhaps that isn t accurate You do get to know the who done it, however, it is never completely finished.All of that being said, I enjoyed itup until the last 25 pageswhen it dawned on me that she was once again, not going to end a book It isn t even that the last 25 pages are bad, just not complete Or maybe, just not as complete as I would prefer I like my books to END Nice, neat, clean wrap ups.Still, this was a book that was hard to put down and enjoyable

    I liked this installment muchI felt a deeper connection to the characters In fact, since this author has no problem killing of characters, one of them this time touched me deeply So points for that.I didn t pick out the killer Another win.However, after 3 books, one not in this series, I ve come to the conclusion that this author has terrible habits.I know going in her books I will find a redhead, a half sibling and crazy family tangles, naked victims, a predator who gets off sexually I liked this installment muchI felt a deeper connection to the characters In fact, since this author has no problem killing of characters, one of them this time touched me deeply So points for that.I didn t pick out the killer Another win.However, after 3 books, one not in this series, I ve come to the conclusion that this author has terrible habits.I know going in her books I will find a redhead, a half sibling and crazy family tangles, naked victims, a predator who gets off sexually on killing no rape or molestation , religious overtones as a factor in the killings, the phrase round rump will be used frequently, and someone close to the main character will die Not to mention, infidelity will be in someone s backstory and insta love is almost a surety And a pet or two with non pet like nameshuman Still, I will probably readhoping against hope that the next book doesn t use the same formula.The narrator did a good job

    The second book in her New Orleans series liked it It picks up where the first book Hot Blooded left off A subtle hint here and there as to who the serial killer might be but nothing concrete, plus a couple of red herrings The main characters are likeable guys good cops, and both with baggage issues.This is a pretty good series, highly recommend it for those that like a good mystery, with a bit of woowoo and suspense 2 thumbs up and 4.5 stars and yes there is a TSTL or two

    Let me say first that if you enjoyed this book, you are absolutely entitled to read and enjoy whatever you like and good for you, carry on Now stop reading this review.What the fuck did I just read I will admit that I don t read a lot of romance novels, since I have little patience for many of the common literary tropes in the genre That said, I feel this was a poor representation Mainly all y all need therapy.Seriously, is it too much to ask for a single example of a rational and functional Let me say first that if you enjoyed this book, you are absolutely entitled to read and enjoy whatever you like and good for you, carry on Now stop reading this review.What the fuck did I just read I will admit that I don t read a lot of romance novels, since I have little patience for many of the common literary tropes in the genre That said, I feel this was a poor representation Mainly all y all need therapy.Seriously, is it too much to ask for a single example of a rational and functional human being Like, one who, when told by their better sense gee, this is a terrible idea, maybe I SHOULDN T GO THROUGH WITH IT, actually LISTENS to it No Okay, fine, go ahead and have sex with this person you just met a few days ago and with whom you literally have had one conversation that did not include extreme distain and uncalled for offenses on both sides See how that goes for ya.Instead, this is a book of incredibly dysfunctional people who are pretty much guaranteed to make the worst possible choice and then get angry at other people when it turns out it was, yes, a bad idea I honestly have no idea what the main characters see in each other at least they deserve each other and save the rest of the world from their unhealthy attitudes towards sex and relationships Add to that a serial killer that gets kinda shunted off to 2nd and 3rd priority for much of the book Though A on a DEEPLY disturbing killer POV I feel kinda unclean after reading this book Unfortunately, that goes for the other characters too Some serious sexual repression as the theme of the book.Again, all y all need therapy.I suppose what frustrated me most was that I think this could have been a lot better base on the premise A psychic, witnessing murders in visions Not new, but still cool Instead, it feltlike the plot was shoved around the admittedly patchy brickwork of the romance.So, if you feel like picking up a great, gripping romance of deep characters and steamy scenes, go read some J.D Robb If you want some snack food reading, with a predictable love affair that you just ready for the easy going kicks find something else too, actually If you want to spend 400 pages yelling at characters to grow the yell up or at least try to catch the friggin killer well, this here is your book.My apologies to Ms Jackson for the harshness of tone in this review, should you happen upon it I congratulate you on your commercial success, and hope you had a great time making this book That saidCan you just try to include some characters with healthy attitudes to sex and relationships Maybe one Please

    Rick Bentz is a New Orleans homicide detective with a younger partner, introduced in a previous book titled Hot Blooded He has a college age daughter who isn t really his, a hang up about the fact that his ex wife cheated on him with his half brother who happens to be a Catholic priest , and since he busted a killer priest in his previous case, a bit of a hang up about the church Plus, you know, trust issues So imagine how he takes it when a beautiful woman barges into his office, claiming t Rick Bentz is a New Orleans homicide detective with a younger partner, introduced in a previous book titled Hot Blooded He has a college age daughter who isn t really his, a hang up about the fact that his ex wife cheated on him with his half brother who happens to be a Catholic priest , and since he busted a killer priest in his previous case, a bit of a hang up about the church Plus, you know, trust issues So imagine how he takes it when a beautiful woman barges into his office, claiming to have had a psychic dream about a priest horribly murdering a woman, and almost immediately a murder scene turns up mirroring every detail of her dream Bentz doesn t know whether to gather Olivia Benchet into his protecting arms or to push her away.Long story short, he ends up having to make up his mind really quick when the killer, who knows that Olivia sees everything he does, steps up his gruesome timetable and crafts a gruesome martyrdom of the saints scenario around her And her best friend And Bentz s daughter, just to be complete Family secrets, eerie visions, psychosis with religious features, sex, murder, and struggles of conscience flock around Olivia, Bentz, his estranged brother, and even his partner, whose girlfriend s disappearance goes unsolved in spite of this mystery s highly wrought climax.It was wrought so highly, in fact, that I thought it may have been a bit overdone A red herring character, skillfully dragged across the killer s trail, is disposed of rather too glibly, while Father James torment comes to a resolution that somehow, to me, seemed both too easy and over indulgently drawn out at the same time Also, I don t really get the romance between Bentz and Olivia While I sympathize with the detective s past relationship troubles, I just don t buy the way such a strong, independent woman melts into his arms, and then keeps going back to him in spite of his repeated cruelty Maybe the problem is I m just not made to enjoy romance novels But while the focus is on the killer s diabolical doings, the story is pretty gripping The whodunit reveal is actually satisfying, which isn t a given in today s crime fiction The horror scenes are horrific, the suspense scenes tingle, and the climax pulls all the story threads together in a tight grip The only thing missing, in my opinion, is a stronger sense of local color, which should maybe be expected of a novel set in New Orleans.This review is based on listening to the audiobook narrated by Alyssa Bresnahan Following Hot Blooded which I haven t read , this book is the second in the New Orleans based Bentz Montoya series of mystery thrillers, which is currently up to eight books Jackson is also the author of two Abandoned novels, of which the second, titled Million Dollar Baby, bears no relation to the Clint Eastwood film by the same name four Maverick western romance novels, a historic trilogy penned as Susan Lynn Crose, at least four Love Letters books A Is for Always, etc , three Dark Jewels novels, the Forever Family romance trilogy, five McCaffertys novels, three San Francisco thrillers, the Medieval Trilogy, the Savannah trilogy, eight Montana To Die thrillers, two Wyoming novels coauthored with Nancy Bush and Rosalind Noonan, and some 40 other novels This was my first time reading anything by her, as far as I can recall I m personallyinterested in the crime thriller side of her work than in the romance, but this book hits both angles

above all the paranormal side of human mind a perfect medley to enjoy the read despite the shivers it leaves in the reader s spine Cold Blooded is a 2002 crime thriller by Lisa Jackson born Susan Lisa Jackson and second in her New Orleans Series with Detectives Rick Bentz and Reuben Montoya Someone had left a few books in the office cafeteria to be taken Of the three or four books that were left I liked the snippet at the back of the book and picked it Having never read her before, it wasof the gut feeling with the snippet that made me read it And my gut was right this time Here is my review.Olivia Benchet comes to Detectives Rick Bentz and Rueben Montoya after she had oneepisode of the visions of a killer murdering a woman this time she hastangible visions than before Although being mocked as a resident nutcase, she still comes to these two only because she had read about them solving the recent bizarre murders in Crescent City She tells them about the vision of a killer who calls himself priest, chains a woman he calls Cecilia to the bathtub, kills her with three strikes to her neck and then burns the building Although he takes her report, he knocks it off as a nutcase considering her background, but his gut thinks something else And true to that a few minutes after Olivia leaves, he is called to a scene of crime that came exactly out of her mouth Just like her Grannie Gin aka Virginia Dubois who had been famed as a voodoo priestess and is said to have visions, Olivia had inherited the same sight except she sees the crime after the fact in fragments Was she having a psychic connection with this killer Why is that so Does she know who it is Could the killer have been Olivia s father Reggie who had just been released from prison after serving 22 years for killing someone Despite his stand that Olivia could be a nutcase, Detective Bentz gets attracted to her And he isthan determined to identify this connection between Olivia and the killer when she sees another vision of him following a young woman Who could that woman be To top it the killer knows that Olivia can see him Can the killer also see Olivia or just sense her Will she be the next target for him Will Detective Bentz and Olivia act upon their feelings In the meanwhile Kristi, Rick s daughter, goes on a date with one Brian Thomas a grad student but she has her doubts on Brian Yet she goes with him on a date A bit rebellion, a lotgorgeous with a quick brain Kristi is the pride of Rick And there is a lot to patch between both of them Will they reconcile with their feelings towards Jennifer Will Kristi finally come around to Rick Along their investigation, the Detectives cross paths with various people, some on their side, some not and some a bit weird Ramsey John Dodd Olivia s grandmother s lawyer who settles her estate after her death , Bernadette Benchet Olivia s mother , Hairy S Grannie Gin s pet dog , Stan Pagliano works with New Orleans Fire Department , Kristi Bentz Rick s daughter , Brian Thomas grad student, TA to Dr Zaroster and dating Kristi , Chia Grannie Gin s pet parrot , Detective Brinkman Rick s co worker , Reggie Benchet Olivia s father and Bernadette s first husband , Melinda Jaskiel Rick s immediate supervisor , Father James McClaren One of the priests at St Luke s , Sarah Restin Olivia s former business partner , Leo Restin Sarah s husband , Ted Brown Olivia s ex fianc e , Oscar Cantrell Bernadette s second husband , Monsignor O Hara Belonging to the church that Fathes James belongs to , Dr Samantha Leeds host of the radio show Midnight Confessions , Trish LaBelle another radio show host and Marta Vasquez Detective Montaya s girlfriend.The plot although is wicked thriller, it basically gives away the final motive if the killer in the prologue itself However, author has spun the plot so well that one still digs deep to see why the killer has chosen that path even though the reader knows his final intentions A very brave concept if I may say so to reveal that in the beginning of the book itself With twisted brain of the killer, a psychic who can see what he does, a cop who is has his own demons to fight what a mix in the plot making it allspine shivering.A bone chilling thriller I must say with a touch of romance, love and human emotions that a killer normally doesn t understand, Aah but don t forget the paranormal side of the plot too which is what addsto the mystery Another author adding to my collection of books, no doubt Spoiler Alerts 1 The plot reflects on some of the past from the first book and perhaps some for the future books having not read the first book, cannot confirm what belonged to past book or future books a Detectives Rick Bentz and Rueben Montoya had solved the bizarre killings in Crescent City a few months prior to this plot and had connected them Dr Samantha Leeds host of the late night radio show Midnight Confessions This is covered in the author s 2001 book Hot Blooded b Dr Jeremy Leeds is one of Olivia s professor at Tulane University where she is studying Psychology The character must have appeared in Hot Blooded novel since the Detectives speak about him in connection with that plot c Jennifer Bentz Rick s ex wife has been murdered Not sure if that plot started in Hot Blooded or ended or if it would continue in future books There isto this character than shown in this book d A sub plot involving Father James McClaren, Detective Rick Bentz and his daughter Kristi Bentz also carries on where we knowabout the friction between Rick and Kristi and the causer behind it We have to wait and see if they come to terms with it and how they handle it 2 Grammatical Historical Location Character Geographical Errors a On Pg 27, line 12 author uses the word git in the statement Someday, honey, you re gonna git Although git is a valid word meaning an unpleasant person , here it doesn t suit the context Perhaps the author meant to put get instead which makessense b On Pg 178, author depicts Oscar Cantrell as Bernadette s husband number two However on Pg 190 she depicts him as Bernadette s husband number three c On Pg 265, second line, the author spells Montoya as Motoya d On Pg 276, last line, an additional he is at the end of the line 3 Detective Montaya s girlfriend Marta Vasquez goes missing and doesn t get solved at the end of the plot Perhaps it is for another book in the series 4 Curious also to see the fate of Sarah Restin and her no good husband Leo Restin Will they appear in another book 5 Unanswered questions about Bernadette and Reggie perhaps will be answered in a future book
