More About the Author

Karen Rose was introduced to suspense and horror at the tender age of eight when she accidentally read Poe's 'The Pit and The Pendulum' and was afraid to go to sleep for years. She now enjoys writing books that make other people afraid to go to sleep.
Karen lives in Florida with her husband of twenty years and their children. When she's not writing, she enjoys travelling, karate and, though not a popular Florida pastime, skiing.

Product Description

Amazon Review

In Karen Rose’s new novel, Have You Seen Her?, a serial killer has his sights set on cheerleaders in a small town in North Carolina. The girls, abducted from their beds, have something in common apart from their cheerleading duties – they each have long dark hair. It’s imperative that the murderer is tracked down before he claims more victims, and Special Agent Steven Thatcher is dedicated to catching this monster. Thatcher is a widower, and has his own problems: his son Brad is growing away from him. Brad’s teacher, Jenna Marshall, is sympathetic, and a relationship grows between the detective and the teacher – but both Steven and Jenna are bruised and wary from earlier relationships. And the seemingly omniscient killer is setting traps – ever closer to his pursuer’s home territory.

Karen Rose’s first novel, 2003’s Don't Tell, created something of a stir, with her heroine, Eve Wilson, brutalised, left unconscious – and requiring plastic surgery. And if that weren’t enough, Rose’s next book, I Can See You, subjected Eve to further agony. So it’s something of a relief that the new book has different protagonists centre stage, even if they have to go through similar (though not quite as punishing) ordeals. Certainly, the tension here is delivered with similar mastery, and Rose (who was a high school chemistry and physics teacher – education’s loss was a gain for readers) knows how to juggle all the requisite elements in a taut narrative like this. Be prepared for long, uninterrupted sessions with Have You Seen Her? – you won’t welcome any interruptions. --Barry Forshaw

this is an exceptional book.a sceond novel for new author karen rose, it follows the plight of special agent steven thatcher (who we met in don't tell)who is after a serial killer. he kills young cheerleaders, shaves their heads and mutilates them.this book also follows steven thatcher's family from his young son who was abducted in the first book to his eldest son, who has "other problems".this is a gut wrenching but very well written book, that allows you to follow the story with ease and sympathy.i was a huge fan of karen rose's first book( don't tell) and highly reccommended it and i also reccommend this one.
it's not often you come accross an author of this calibur and i'm thankful that i have, it has been a joy to read such a well written story.

A serial killer is abducting highschool cheerleaders, and murdering them in a gruesome manner. Special Agent, Steven Thatcher is on the case of trying to catch the killer, before he strikes again. Steven has enough troubles of his own, as he is a widower, with three children, the eldest of which has been acting in a strange manner, in recent weeks.

I found this story an enjoyable and exciting read. What I really like about this author is that she is very good at creating characters that make you want to care about them. In particular, Steven Thatcher, his family, and highschool teacher, Dr. Jenna Marshall, who Steven falls head over heels in love with.

This is a good, nailbiting thriller.

This was the second of KR's books that I have read and I wasn't disappointed. I loved the main characters, they had guts, brains and came across as caring. The suspense in it was great as was the humour. The whole book was well written and didn't feel rushed in anyway. One I would definetly recommend.

I really enjoyed this book. I think, however, that you should be aware that this book is firstly a romance novel which is also a thriller.If you are into real pure thrillers, this book may be a little bit too cliched and romance driven for you. Personally, I love romance novels so to find one that also has a good plot is always great and I will definitely read Karen Rose's other books.

Format: Paperback
This is the first novel I've read by Karen Rose, and I know it won't be my last. :-)

Your journey begins in a small town a serial killer is on the prowl and Special Agent Steven Thatcher has vowed to find him. Girls are disappearing from their beds during the night, and all have been found murdered.

With Steven it's always a tug of war between family and work, and work seems to win. He is worried about his son and what's happening to him, as is his teacher. Steven gets off on the wrong foot with his sons teacher at first as he's been called in about his son's subject grades.

Steven finds out he's attracted to his son's teacher Jenna, and visa versa, both have been hurt and don't want to get involved.

That's all I'm going to say about the story as I don't want to spoil it for you.

The author has made her characters believable, and the story is well structured. I practically like how she has structured the chapters, so you are given a nice detailed timeline of the events as they happen, (just like a real investigation).

The novel gripped me right from the start; it's an excellent and enjoyable easy read. I found it a compelling and had great trouble putting the book down. :-)

I'd recommend this to anyone who loves crime novels or just loves to read, as you'll enjoy it. The book is worth every penny and it's one I would read again. :-)

Well, I found out what Romantic Suspense is by reading this book. It is a mix of sizzling romance with mystery/suspense. I read a variety of things, but have never read a book quite like this one.
Special Agent Steven Thatcher is the lead investigator on a series of serial killings in his small town - the killer targets young, innocent teenage girls. He meets his teenage son's teacher, Jenna Marshall who is concerned about his son's falling grades. They feel an immediate attraction for one another, but due to losses and disappointments in their previous relationships, they resist each other's affections.

After the initial chapters, which included sizzling descriptions about how the main characters felt about each other, I almost put this book down. I was afraid the book would be more romance and very little suspense. I was wrong. I am so glad I didn't give up on this one.

Though romance is at the core of this story, the suspense is so hair raising and realistic that I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish reading this book. As with any good mystery/suspense, this writer managed to throw out enough clues to lead you along the path of who the killer was yet still hit you with a big surprise you at the end - the killer is not the person you think he is.

This was a highly entertaining read, I highly recommend it. You may just stay up past your bedtime reading it too.

Karen Rose is an extremely brilliant writer. I can never seem to put her books down and finish them within days of buying them.

'Have you seen her?' is written so well and is very gripping. Steven Thatcher becomes involved in a horrific investigation, something he will never forget. He mixes with work, love and his family.
Im not so great at writing these but i will just say that the book is excellent and i strongly recommend it for those who love detective/murder stories!!
