Troublemaker (GO-Team #1) Reviews
What a disappointment this was.
Troublemaker is by no means romantic suspense, it is small town contemporary romance, and a very boring one at that. The story drags and drags, with no suspense/mystery/interesting points to speak of, the hero and heroine are flat and with zero chemistry, the only fully fleshed out character being the dog, Tricks, who started to annoy me too somewhere around 70%, she was just too full of herself, all pretty and smart, such a special snowflake Golden Retriever.
2.5 stars At least 50 pages too many devoted to the dog. And "fast-paced," "thrilling?" Really?
There are the bones for a good book here, but there's a tonal issue and lack of focus that runs this story off the rails. And again--cute dog, but even a lighthearted Kristen Higgans book doesn't spend this much time obsessively detailing the dog. Linda Howard used to write fantastic romantic suspense, romance novels, and historical romances. No idea how her last few books have missed to mark so badly ...more
He was smiling down at her, a crooked smile that invited her to join in his amusement. “Is there a rule about how many celebratory kisses are allowed?”
“What idiot wrote that rule?”
“Scratch the previous comment.”
As always, Linda Howard knows very well what the readers want, and she masterfully interweaves romance, humor, and a touch of suspense into this fantastic novel.
As her fan, I was so excited to dive into this book, but I must admit during the first few chapters, I had ...more
Welp! This was disappointing.
It had good bones, story-wise. Morgan is an elite paramilitary personnel who got ambushed and almost got killed. To lure out the people who put a hit on him, his supervisor sent him to his stepsister, Isabeau "Bo" Maran to recover, essentially setting himself up as bait.
I was into this. It sounded like the Linda Howard of old. Unfortunately, things never really got off the ground. The book didn't quite know what it was supposed to be. Is it supposed to be romantic ...more
Just okay. Not up to Linda Howard's gold standard. Seemed like an offering from a midlister instead. There was none of the sparkling humor between the hero and heroine or high tension in the mystery plot that I've come to expect. Okay storyline. I thought there was way too much of the super smart dog. The heroine's reactions concerning the dog were over the top. Seemed like they were the reactions I would have expected a person to have about their child instead. I know some people really love th ...more
2 Disappointing Stars!!
I hate that I am so disappointed with a Linda Howard book. When reading the book blurb I was so excited because it sounded like a classic Linda Howard book….I was sorely disappointed. I was expecting a book reminiscent of her “CIA Spies” books. What we got was basically the life of a beloved Golden Retriever in a small West Virginia town. Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs but I don’t want to read a whole book about a dog when I expected a book that was clearly tagged as ...more
Loved this romantic thriller! Great storyline and characters.Linda Howard is one of my favorite writers. Morgan Yancy is a operative team leader who is home on leave and gets jumped and stabbed by Russian operative. His team leader knows its only a matter of time before who ever wants Morgan dead will send someone to finish the job.so he sends Morgan to live with his step sister Bo, from along ago marriage. What happens when you take a man who's life is a dangerous and secretive and put him with ...more
3.5 'needs another edit' Stars. I don't know whether to call this RS or not. The first 10% and the last 10% were solid, suspense action; but all the story in between was full-on small town romance. Both were enjoyable enough, but I’m not sure how well they worked together. I'll have to do a reread of the final book.
Morgan has just come home after a mission with the shadowy paramilitary group he works for, when someone tries to kill him. Desperately wounded, and not knowing who was behind the att ...more
