    3. I love Gerri Hill and this is my favorite one so far. It's a perfect blend of thriller and romance. Just the right amount of both and all works out in the end. We all need happy endings, right?

    4. I'm totally in love with the story! Likeable characters, exciting plot, right amount of gore to keep the crime/mystery vibe up in the midst of the piping hot romance brewing between Jake and Nicole. We have Jake who's on vacation while trying to recover physically and emotionally from her last assignment with no one but her trusty canine, Cheyenne, by her side. She finds solace in the secluded Colorado mountains hoping the tranquillity and beauty around her will take her mind off the guilt she c [...]

    5. Very formulaeic mystery/romance in which I didn't get the attraction between the characters at all. The high-powered lesbian circle of friends seemed fabricated to me and I couldn't relate to the resulting class issues at all. Main flaw: The two main characters didn't really communicate, weak ending in which issues between them are not resolved.

    6. I just started reading Gerri Hill this year and she is by far one of my favorite authors! Her many stories are compelling, interesting, dramatic and it keeps you involved throughout the whole book and leaves you wanting moreThe Killing Room brings us two main characters while still having time to involve side characters also. Jake McCoy is at her cabin in the woods recovering from a gunshot wound to the leg, with her faithful companion Cheyenne. Not only is she trying to heal her wound but also [...]

    7. I like characters in books and Gerri Hill does an excellent job of writing interesting and compelling characters. I would like to see more of the characters in this book, where they go from here and how they develop. She seems to write stand alone novels with characters that would work well in a series format.She also does a nice job of writing about hiking, mountains, hot springs and nature in general. The scenes at the cabin were by far the best parts of the book.That's the positive.The negati [...]

    8. Wow, I really liked this story. It's enthralling and captivating until the very end. It's a first class murder mystery/thriller with lots of twists and turns and at the same time a blossoming romance. I really liked the connection and the growing relationship between Jake and Nicole (again two well written characters, thumbs up, Gerri Hill). I#m binge reading Gerri Hill books and I love all of them so far ;) off to the next one!

    11. This was amazing and sad at the same time!! What the Lieutenant did, Jesus Christ, talk about a monster with a nice smile. Maybe he was connected to that very shooting that led to Jake getting shot in the leg the first time. But damn, and that effing mother, HOW COULD SHE DO THAT TO HER OWN SON?? LIKE SERIOUSLY!!! I would rather get a beating everyday than do such an awful thing to my son!! And this Lieutenant, like Jesus, so effing sick, I am glad he died. And Poor James Bond, I didn't like Nic [...]

    17. Word of advice, if you're going to read Gerri Hill books, read them in order of publication date. She sometimes likes to throw back to old characters and story lines. So reading Snow Falls first meant I was spoiled on the bad guy in The Target. And The Target gives away the bad guy in this one. But I've learned my lesson now. Reading all the rest of hers in publication date order.

    18. I really liked this. It's a less gruesome Patricia Cornwell novel (I didn't have to sleep with the lights on) wrapped in a lesbian romance. The story worked well, was plausible and well written. One of the better ones I've read.

    19. I loved how this was one of Hills longer novels, with more space to establish a setting and emotional attachment. Even through all the horrible things happening I was left with a warm fuzzy feeling. Would love a sequel with these two, the ending was somewhat abrupt and leaves you wanting more.

    20. One of Gerri's bestI enjoyed the pace of this book and the fact that it didn't feel rushed in its writing. I loved that the two main characters also intertwined and did a good job with the male characters. A wonderful read. Well done.

    21. It would have been a five-star if the storyline didn't pace so slowly. But all in all, it is another good book, besides "Hunter's way"

    26. I loved the beautiful mountain landscapes and liked the easy dialogue but found the characters a little shallow and the plot too unbelievable and sadistic to find this enjoyable overall.

    27. I loved this book; I think it is the best of Gerri Hill's work.

    28. A riveting read! The mystery keeps you guessing right to the end. At the same time we follow the budding romance between Police Detective Jake McCoy and closeted Psychologist Dr Nicole Westbrook.
