After I figured the "shocker" out I just wanted to scream at her, "Yes!
You're a damn nutbag so quit whining and shut up! Also, Ms. Everytime Caitlyn's heartbeat and breath rate pass a certain point she turns into her dead twin Kelly. So, in effect, every time that she jogs or has sex the Kelly personality is triggered. Also, instead of the intensive therapy normally required to overcome this, Caitlyn manages to overcome her MPD by sheer force of will.

The big romance between her and Adam, her shrink, seemed strained and forced. Especially near the end. I'm sorry but the man lied to her, was married to her former shrink and was just using her for information at first, until he noticed what a hot dish she was and wanted to nail her and she forgives him in two days. I liked Ms.
Jackson's New Orleans series for the most part and I was very disappointed in this set. The only two characters that were moderately bearable were the detectives, Sylvie Morisette and Reed. Jan 18, Kellie rated it it was ok. The book itself was ok. The few twists there were, were pretty predictable. The perspective of the detectives seemed completely useless to me. Neither of them added anything to the story except misogyny and The ending was entirely disappointing. The killer was caught somehow, honestly we aren't given much insight as to how they figured out where to find the killer and then we're snapped into the ending chapter wh 2.
The killer was caught somehow, honestly we aren't given much insight as to how they figured out where to find the killer and then we're snapped into the ending chapter where everyone is recovering and happy. Also, the kindle formatting was absolutely awful. Switching perspectives without so much as a chapter break was incredibly confusing.
Spelling and punctuation errors abound. I could go on forever. Jul 06, Debbie Heaton rated it really liked it. When Caitlyn Montgomery Bandeaux wakes up covered in blood, she has no memory of what happened. When the police find her estranged husband dead, Caitlyn finds herself wanted by the authorities.
Not knowing what else to do, Caitlyn turns to psychologist Adam Hunt to help her piece together the haunting and fragmented memories that have begun to surface. And when all is said and done, she finds herself wondering if she can trust anyone at all. Fast-paced and intense storyline that will keep the reader eager to get to the last page. Jul 13, Kelly Moran rated it really liked it. I didn't finish this. There is no place to move the book to except "Read" or "To read". View 2 comments. Feb 21, Mary rated it did not like it.
About pages too long with ramblings that add nothing to the plot. I did not like the characters, relationships or storyline; especially the weak paranormal aspect. Jan 30, Samantha Porter rated it it was amazing. More 4. Very good book.
Lots of twists and turns. There's the "Montgomery Curse", mysterious deaths, family secrets that weren't secrets, gossip about incest in the family As much as I was trying not to roll my eyes at th 2. I got drawn into the story. I got drawn into the mystery, which, to be frank, is really the only thing that this book had going for it. I mean, when you think about the true identity of Atropos it really DOES make a lot of sense and ties together; but it still managed to dupe me. So… while everything else was overly dramatic, Lisa Jackson does seem to have a way with her telling.
I got sucked in, plain and simple.
Caitlyn Montgomery Bandeaux wakes up in her bedroom to find blood everywhere and her shower door with a hole in it. But the amount of blood in the room feels wrong, though she is too distraught to consider this fact. There is a gaping hole where her memory of the night before should have been, so she freaks out big time and tries her darndest to get ahold of her twin sister, Kelly who was supposed to meet her for drinks last night. Obviously, Kelly will know what happened and Kelly will know what to do.
Things just start to spiral out of control from there when Caitlyn starts to question her own likelihood of being a killer. Anyway, her estranged husband, Josh Bandeaux is killed, made to look like a suicide, but also made to look like a botched attempt at making the murder look like a suicide.

Still with me on this one? All arrows point to Caitlyn with the proper motive: estranged husband is divorcing her, suing her for wrongful death of their child, really just married her for her family trust fund, and had always been an asshole on top of seeing other women. The circumstantial evidence listed above pointing at Caitlyn Thank you, exposition fairy detectives; I needed to be reminded over and over again why, in terms of storytelling and traditional climactic twists, Caitlyn is absolutely NOT our murderer. The suspense was trying at times, but it held up well. I get that Romantic Suspense novels are usually chock full of insta-lust to insta-love scenarios.
And most of the time you ignore the legitimacy of it for the sake of the Happily Ever After in the conclusion, especially if the characters are extremely lovable and unfortunately, in this book, they are not. Insta-lust to insta-love is more readily acceptable for me than straight-forward insta-love. Beautiful people are attracted to beautiful people in real life anyway. Happily Ever Afters of good people in fiction can sometimes make me overlook a lot of things that don't make sense, ya know. So insta-lust becoming insta-love it is!
I know that shrinks are human too and have human emotion and also need love in their lives Nonetheless, the story had done enough to hook my interest and I managed to at least like some aspect of it. Conclusion: Entertaining read. Could have been shorter and less gasp-worthy provoking. The romance needs work. I shall continue the series and hope for the best.
The idea for this book was good but the execution was horrendous. The writing was choppy, POV switched multiple times within the chapter without letting you know who it was right away or had any connection with the sentence from the previous chapter. The dialogue was trite and the characters annoying, lacking depth or more than one emotion and everyone had a low IQ. The book could have been a lot shorter and told th The idea for this book was good but the execution was horrendous.
