Review | Not Without You

Hott Synopsis:

amazon Goodreads
Lisa Richardson is nothing, if not determined. She’s been climbing these Colorado mounts since she was a child and now is no different. Especially since the boreal toad’s very existence may hinge on this mission. Armed with test tubes and notes Lisa tracks the toads she’s bent on saving.

But someone has other plans in mind for Lisa.

There’s a killer on the loose praying on innocent female hikers and while Lisa is prepared in normal circumstances, this trip isn’t normal.

Fortunately for Lisa, McIntyre Walsh has chosen this mountainside to come to terms with his time in Afghanistan and sees Lisa’s perpetrator almost as soon as Lisa is targetted.

If only he could get to her – because he’s not leaving without her!

Hott Review:

What I liked: I loved reading “Not Without You”! It was just right for me. It’s a suspense-filled romantic mystery that has very little steam, no gore, and very little language. I could enjoy this without hoping my kids might look over my shoulder or accidentally grab it in the library.
It irked me that I was wrong about who the killer was! 😉
What I didn’t like: The only things I didn’t like about “Not Without You” is that I didn’t learn enough about the killer and I thought there were some things that weren’t deep enough. Overall, these were really minor feelings & I’ll be keeping this one on my shelf!
