4.0 out of 5 stars Looks are deceiving... 26 Feb 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Criminal psychologist Dr. Erin Abbott wants nothing more than to live the quiet life. That means no danger, do intrigue and absolutely no romance.

Journalist Gabriel Moss is hot to find his next huge story - and he knows that Erin is onto something big.

As they join forces, Gabriel slowly seduces Erin, but Erin knows that their love can never be, for she is hiding a terrible secret - and if Gabriel reveals the truth, Erin's life could be shattered forever.....

A good read. Well written, though it did start to drag nearing the end.

I'm rating this 3.5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful Mystery� 26 Jun 2004
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Analise Glover was a young, brilliant, yet "different" child with a promising career ahead of her until she meets Nathan Rhodes, a professor at Callenwolde University where her parents have sent her to study linguistics. Noticing her brilliance in the art of words, languages, and understanding them, Nathan takes her under his wings, convinces her that her work isn't good enough, and tells her to change her major to psychology. He encloses her in his world, belittling her and brainwashing her to believe she has no one but him to turn to.
One dreadful night years later, she catches him in the midst of something so horrible, she flees to a cabin he once took her to. He follows her and when they confront each other, a big fight ensues. The end result is that he loses control of the gun, it goes off and when she awakens, he is dead. Analise calls her only friend to help her dispose of the body.
Years later, Analise has turned herself into Dr. Erin Abbott, a criminal psychology professor at a college in New Orleans. She's hid herself under a shroud of frumpy clothing and refused to let anyone get close to her. When she receives a letter filled with obituaries and clues detailing several murders, she knows her past is back to haunt her and takes the information to the police. Unfortunately, they don't really believe her and why a killer would single her out leaving her clues that she claims only she can see.
Reporter/Journalist Gabriel Moss, on the other hand, is sure that her story of the ABC Murders will save his dying newspaper. Thrusting himself in her life, he immediately sees through her charade and wants to find out what she's hiding. Their partnership is set amidst lies and secrets, yet they join forces to find the killer. What ensues is an emotional race against time to identify and stop the killer from adding victims to his list.
Action-packed and suspenseful, Selena Montgomery immediately draws in the reader and keeps a consistent hold through the pages of NEVER TELL. Going from the present to the past and back again, we're able to relive Erin's earlier life and find out exactly why she's holding tight to her secrets. The sensual attraction between Erin and Gabriel fits perfectly and allows us to see all dimensions of their character. What I really loved about the story was the suspense. While reading, you have no idea who the killer is until you actually read it once it's revealed. Additionally, Montgomery has written a story that transcends race and lands solidly as a book I'd recommend to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very intelligent read-nice twist in plot 24 July 2004
By C. Miller - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a great book! The only reason it took me two days to read it was, I had to get some sleep. I have the BET novels by this author, and have been anxiously awaiting this mainstream mystery. I was not disappointed! I enjoy a book with an intelligent storyline, and if I am able to learn something it is a double bonus. The description of the linguistics field was very interesting. The switch up on the standard profile of a serial killer was great! I think the ending might have been a little thin, and rushed, but it did not change my overall opinion of the book. I can now add another sister to my 'sister sleuth' writers list. Good job Ms. Montgomery

5.0 out of 5 stars exciting serial killer romance 2 Jun 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In California, when Analise Glover attended school, she looked up to Linguistics expert Professor Nathan Rhodes until he stole her work. When she confronted him, he tried to kill her, but she survived killing him instead. Her friend gets her out of there, but not before he tosses the body into the sea.
A few years later, Analise uses the name of Dr. Erin Abbott, a criminal psychology professor at Burdeen University in the New Orleans area. She receives a package containing five obits of people who were murdered and she soon sees a pattern that links the name to the murder weapon and ultimately back to Nathan. She reports her finding, but the police write her off as a quack. However, overhearing the discussion, Bayou Ledger reporter-owner Gabriel Moss thinks he might have a story to save his fledgling newspaper in the professor and the "ABC murders". Reluctantly Erin agrees to partner with Gabe to uncover the identity of a killer as she expects to be the last victim. As they work together, they fall in love, but she feels that she could never stay with anyone permanently because of all the traumas she suffered.
Romantic suspense readers will not only appreciate this exciting serial killer romance, but will also tell peers how good an author Selena Montgomery is. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action as Erin deciphers the clues that the culprit sends her way. She struggles to identify the murderer as the evidence points to Nathan who is a dead man. However, no one else could know what the killer knows except Nathan and her. She also doesn't know what to do about her growing love for Gabe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Summer Beach Read with Plenty of Chills! 19 Jun 2004
By Alessandra Cover - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book during a frantic search for summer beach material. I didn't recognize the author, but the haunting eye staring out from the cover convinced me to pick it up. Thank heavens! Ms. Montgomery is a superb writer, one who draws the reader inside the lives of her characters with such ease that you feel like you've known Erin and Gabe forever. With creative cast of secondary characters (who hopefully will return), she weaves a chilling tale of murder, mystery and romance as well as trauma, betrayal and redemption -- devastating combinations. That Ms. Montgomery loves language is obvious, but that she makes a summer reader feel smart and entertained at the same time is a tremendous skill (think Dan Brown or Patricia Cornwell). I won't recount the story because it's pretty well explained already, but I can promise you that you will rush out to buy all of her other titles. I just finished "Rules of Engagement," her first book, and I now have new favorite author. Ignore the covers of her earlier books. Her characters transcend race and the romance genre. She's a fabulous storyteller and I am on to "The Art of Desire." I will enjoy the summer!
