Book Description

15 April 2011 Mills & Boon Intrigue
Of all the offices in all the world… Why did Lizzie Porter have to waltz into his? Wary loner Sam Travers always had a soft spot for Lizzie – and now she’s grown up, with the curves to prove it. But to move on his old partner’s daughter would be oh-so-wrong… Except that Lizzie won’t take no for an answer. She’s discovered that she might have a half-sister. And she’s not going to let anyone stop her on her search – even Sam! The plot thickens when someone takes a shot at Lizzie and Sam volunteers to move in with her – just to protect her, of course. And, as they puzzle out the truth, he wonders just when he’ll dare move out…

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure it should be Book of the Month 14 Jun 2011
By Mozzie VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've read quite a lot of Mills & Boon over the years and although this is a nicely written intrigue novel, I really can't say that it has enough sparkle or zest to make it worthy of the Book of the Month award in my opinion.

I read Crime Scene at Cardwell Ranch, from the same equivilent Harlequin Intrigue series, recently on my Kindle and in comparison, Come to Me sadly just isn't up to the same standard.

I think there needed to be more romance and the characters seemed a bit flat and not very well developed.

If you are stuck at the airport and there is nothing else to buy, then okay, but I think there are better books available.

2.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Intrigue that's a bit bland 13 Nov 2011
By josie82 TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Sam Travers' past has made him wary of relationships. But when Lizzie Porter waltzes back into his office his heart takes a hit. He's always had a soft spot for Lizzie but now she's all grown up and she's determined to show him just how much.

Lizzie is determined to find her half-sister and she wants to hire private investigator Sam to do it for her. The fact that the investigation puts her in close proximity with sexy Sam is just an added bonus. But when they get shot at Sam decides to move in to protect Lizzie - but who will protect his heart?

In the past I have avoided Mills and Boon Intrigue because I am a complete wimp and I assumed that the books would be too scary and tense for my liking. However, I decided to give this one a go as I liked the premise of the story. I now wish I hadn't bothered but not because of the scariness (of which there was none) but because it was, overall, a bland and uninspiring read.

Our two main characters are Sam and Lizzie. I couldn't quite figure Sam out - brooding and moody one minute and then grinning and seductive the next. His reasons for not being in a relationship with Lizzie went out the window so fast it made me really question his character. Similarly, I didn't much care for Lizzie. One of Sam's main objections to their romance was the age difference between them (8 years) and as such I think that Lizzie was written as quite an immature and nave 24 year old. This could have been fine but she babbled on, disregarded everyone else's feelings and was generally too annoying for me to care about her or them as a couple.

The intrigue wasn't too intriguing and there was little suspense or excitement with the half-sister mystery. And generally, I just didn't feel any spark with the story as a whole.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average romance 16 Sep 2011
By Lucy Hargrave VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I started reading this book on a plane and finished on the plane journey. It is only roughly 250 pages long and I would therefore suggest it as a quick and easy read. The plot is fairly predictable, women has long term crush on older guy, older guy comes to like women and eventually after a couple of arguments and misunderstanding the man comes to the heroic rescue of girl and her baby sister. I say girl but she is in her twenties so its all legal, don't worry.
The book is okay but there are parts of it that seems to be prolonged unnecessarily, because of this it became slightly tiresome after a while and really put be off the book. That is why I have only given it three stars as it is not badly written just not particularly memorable or funny.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 8 May 2011
By Mrs. A. Wright VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book states INTRIGUE Breathtaking Romantic Suspense. It is not intriguing, nor romantic and hardly a breathtaking suspense. The plot is completely predictable and the characters dull and implausible and I did not really care what happened to them.I think perhaps if the book was longer the author might have been able to develop both plot and characters a little but as it stands it did not hold my attention and was a chore to read. The style of writing reads like a textbook with no warmth at all. I hate to be so negative but derived no enjoyment from it. I cannot recommend it

By ROROBLU'S MUM TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I jumped at the chance to read this LWJ book, as I've read her Raintree trilogy contribution, and her Linda Howard collaboration and thought that both were excellent. However, I've realised that that was probably as both were fast-paced paranormal tales, with lots of action, unknown species, vampires, magic, hot, steamy sex and a HEA, and this is more of an everyday, mundane tale.

It's not bad, but it did nothing for me, and I forced myself to read it, although I'd already guessed the outcome. It's the tale of Lizzie who hasn't really grown out of her teenage crush on ex-cop Sam, her cop-father's old partner, who is now divorced, and whose PI services she wants to use to find out if the young girl she suspects is her half-sister really is. That's the tale, but as it was under the Intrigue line, a bit of 'intrigue' was introduced in the form of a bullet through her window and through that of Sam's ex-wife, but when the latter episode got debunked within a couple of pages, it lead me straight to the possible bad guy.

A couple of red-herrings were thrown in as possible suspects, but they had no real credibility and yes, the baddie would have potentially been a killer, but it seemed out of character until the very end.

On top, the love scenes were practically non-existent and Sam's supposed reliuctance about making a move on his ex-partner's daughter was a total non-starter, as were his issues about not being goood enough for any woman. Unfortunately, IMHO, the blurb on the back bigged-up this book, but the tale itself didn't live up to the blurb. Disappointing, yet I have the next collaboration with Linda Howard on pre-order, a whole 16months in advance, and would recommend both books mentioned above.
