5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling romantic suspense!
I read and enjoyed Melinda Leigh's first thriller 'She Can Run' so was eagerly awaiting this one. I was not disappointed - it's got a clever, fast-paced plot and it keeps you guessing til the end. The crime is cleverly conceived, as is the way that the author plays off the protagonist Jayne's role as a paparazzo against the wider backdrop of a crime scene investigation...

3.0 out of 5 stars More romance than mystery
Not quite what I expected - rather too much "romance" (he gazed into her deep green eyes etc etc) than a murder mystery.
However, ignoring the dreamy gazing, a reasonable suspense story, with likeable characters and something I read in a few hours.
Fine if you want a quick holiday read, but beware if you are not a fan of romance...

4.0 out of 5 stars A heady blend of lust, mystery and murder., 23 Oct 2012

This review is from: Midnight Exposure (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Midnight Exposure is a gentle mix of mystery and romance. It's a novel that's easy to read and perfect for a holiday by the pool. The characters are an interesting blend of professional photographer, Jayne Sullivan, hunky ex detective, Reed Kimball, plus an eccentric sculptor, a couple of missing hikers and, potentially, a crazed killer. Makes for a heady mix. I enjoyed the little 'intricacies' such as the mystery of a Celtic coin found beneath a body and the building attraction between Jayne and Reed is nicely worked.

Midnight Exposure has enough adventure to keep the reader hooked and makes for quite an interesting read.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I imagine a decent sub-editor could reduce this book to a fifty page short story. Who knows, it might then be quite decent, but as it stands it's almost unreadable and juvenile in style. I got as far as this quote then had to give up:

"Yes! The internet connection was slow, but it was there. It was also free, a boon to her tight budget. She hated to dip into her secret stashes of emergency cash."

I tried to continue but only got as far as:

"As he'd already noted (??) she was lovely. Long limbs. Strong back. Skin creamy as fresh milk. Hair like a fiery halo. The kind of woman that could keep home and hearth, as well a wield a sword on the battle field."

1.0 out of 5 stars Good story, poor narrative, 16 Jun 2014

What a shame this good story with an interesting and unexpected ending was spoilt by poor narrative and dialogue.
How many times did she wrote that the hairs on her neck shivered or described his muscular arms.
This may be good for teenage girls but not men and adults.

I like this author more and more I read her books. Even the sudden ending and feeling a little unresolved didn't ruin it for me. I will definitely carry on reading her books.
