I'm a fairly dedicated Fantasy and Sci-Fi reader, but I was in the mood for something a little more down to earth so I picked up Tell Me When It Hurts. Granted, I was expecting a little more The Long Kiss Goodnight or La Femme Nikita than The Horse Whisperer, but it was still a sweet story. I teared up more than once, rooted for the characters and was pleased with the ending.

Archer was mired in guilt and in constant emotional turmoil. She was a little horrible, but who could blame her? Not me. Conner was...oh, Conner was just marvellous. He was one of the best characters I've come across lately. I loved him. He sooo deserved to be happy. There were also a whole host of small-time side characters who all had an important role to play and you couldn't help but like them.

The above sentence, with the movie/book references in it, would fit nicely into the Tell Me When It Hurts. There are a lot of them in the book. It's a game the characters play, and by extension so does the reader. It was kind of fun and I suspect that there were even more than I was able to catch.

The book did drag a bit in the middle. It wasn't that nothing happened, in fact a few small but important things occurred. It was just that for a little while there it became a string of mundane occurrences, Christmas shopping, getting the mail, walking the dogs, etc. I know that this was sort of the point. The characters were falling into a life together, but I'm used to a bit more action and was relieved when things picked back up.

The book would definitely appeal to fans of Nicholas Evans more than those of Robert Ludlam, but I recommend it for anyone who likes a story about the resilience of the human spirit and overcoming personal tragedy.

I got this book as a free download as I thought it was a thriller. I then found out that it was a romance with a twist. Archer Loh is a lady who is sent out to kill men who have molested girls. Conor McCall is a man who has lost his daughter and his wife. This book is the story of how both met and tried to sort out their lives. I found it a very good read and I think it would help people who have suffered loss.

I got this for free as part of a Kindle Deal of the Day type offer but I think the normal price is quite fair. I do feel that the write-up is somewhat misleading though. As the previous reviewer states, this is not a thriller or even really a crime novel - it is a romance with a slight twist.

There is lots of discussion of nature, the countryside, camping, dogs, horses, farms, ranches, sheep, mountains etc.
There is also a fair bit of cheesy romance, although I like that the heroine is somewhat non-standard in her approach to relationships until the end.
There is very little discussion of contract killing, apart from references to it as something she does on the side for a shady revenge-motivated organisation and the inclusion of one 'job' she carries out toward the end.

It's basically a cheesy romance with animals, and if that's your thing, then this is the holiday read for you. 3/5 stars.

This book really is not what it claims to be and that is something of a shame. I thought it was a thriller and it certainly isn't; it is a romance with a little added extra.
Archer's secret "occupation" raises moral issues to ponder. Can what she does ever be considered right? I don't have a problem believing that there might be a group which does what her group does - after all, who knows? I do find it hard to believe that none of the few people who know what she does on her mysterious journeys, seem to have any qualms about it.

I enjoyed this book. The plot is unusual, and while one would normally condemn vigilantism, one has to be sympathetic in this case. The main story it's a love story including loss and grief, as well as finding new love. We are left wondering until the end of this will work out or not.
I had to keep going back to it, to follow the twists and turns and know what was going to happen.
I recommend this book as an enjoyable read.

I loved this book, it does make me wonder though does the person that writes the blurb actually read the books?!!

The story is a bit of a romance but also has a hint of crime and conspiracy theorys but over all a really good read that makes you feel for the characters and want to get to know them and there individual stories.

Give it a shot is all i can say, you will love it or hate it (the marmite of books!!)

Not really the sort of read I go for, usually preferring mysteies and thrillers, but I really enjoyed this romance novel. Was easy to read and really allowed you to "know" the characters. I read it in only about 5 sittings, and found it difficult to put down.
