If you have read a Karen Rose book before you can expect her usual high standard of suspense, murder investigation and romance, with likable characters and believable storylines. It is a story involving a Medical Examiner with a past and a police detective investigating the murders. The only link to previous books is that of Clay Maynard (the PI). I am not sure if this is the start of another linked series but cannot wait until her next book! If you are considering this book - please buy, especially if this is your type of genre as you will enjoy it im sure!! Then you can read all her others......
P.S. One criticism to the publisher - why not available on e-book or kindle??

This is the new book from KR. It contains all the usual factors that make up a KR book. However it felt different because in a long time new characters were introduced. It's also different because the trademark KR close loving family scene was missing.note that I said different not bad.however I do have one criticism of the book. Why was the time span so short. I mean everything takes place in two and a half day. Body count is high but some how everything there is to know about the victim is found out , autopsies and all the tests are done and the killer is found.departmental meeting are taking place early hours of the morning and vast amount of information is gathered from(the Internet using a cell phone). It just felt a bit unreal to me. Other than that it's a decent book. Give it a try.

When I received KR's latest book I wasn't surprised to see it was a humdinger of a hardback at 480 pages. This was actually something I relished, a meaty book that I could get my teeth into.

In the past Karen Rose has been criticised for her style of writing with some saying that the romance element shouldn't be there. I disagree and see nothing wrong in a crime or thriller novel having a splash of love about it.

In this particular book it took me no time at all to get straight into the heart of the story. The opening few chapters throw us into the world of Lucy Trask and the grisly discovery of a body. Lucy does follow a tried and tested type of character, a strong and independent woman with a murky past. I must say though, although it may seem a tires type of character, Karen Rose does it perfectly. Lucy Trask was a great character and a lot of the gripping elements of the story relate to her past and her current hidden secrets.

JD Fitzpatrick is also a strong and cleverly written lead character. I wouldn't be spoiling the plot by saying that the love interest is not hard to work out in this book but it was done subtly.

As ever Karen Rose' strongest attribute is the crimes themselves. As usual we have a gritty and sometimes disturbing plot with a very high body count and a race against time before more people become victims. The crime scenes themselves are very descriptive and the tension runs pretty high too and I found myself sitting up a little more, and nudging my tush further towards the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen.

The story doesn't let up pace throughout the whole book and the ending was a pretty good round up too. Overall it took me around three days to finish the book which isn't surprising with the size of it.

I am not going to give a summary of the content - other reviewers have done that to a sufficient degree and very well.

What we have here is a prime example of excellent story-telling. Karen Rose is one of my favourite authors and has, again, delivered the goods. This book marks the beginning of a new series of books connected by re-appearing characters. Karen Rose's writing style is fluid, exciting and her stories are fast-paced. I enjoyed the interaction between hero and heroine, but I what I liked best is the fact that Rose does not only write from the hero/heroine's point of view Rather, we actually get an insight into the killer's motivation and background. That fact brings the book to life even more and it creates a wonderfully multi-faceted story.

I've a weak spot for forensic pathologists. Starting with Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta, Bones' Cam, Castle's Lauren and Tess Gerritsen's Dr. Maura Isles, I love them one and all. So when I read the blurb for You Belong to Me, I was immediately intrigued. And for good reason, as it turns out. Once Ms Rose's latest novel grabbed me, it didn't let go again until I finished it. You Belong to Me moves at a frantic pace, with the action, the prologue and epilogue excepted, taking place in the space of just two days.

The book is both a crime novel and a romance. The crime part is compelling. While the book is - at its core - your typical revenge story, the how, what, and who is interesting and so well written, I couldn't put the book down. I loved the detective team of JD Fitzpatrick and Stevie Mazzetti. They had an interesting mix of partnership and "off the job"-back story. They're comfortable with each other, without there having to be a spark between them, other than friendship. A nice addition to the police procedural (which actually makes it less of a straight one) is Clay Maynard, ex-cop/private detective. Clay is a cool character, he's your typical gruff and rough PI, who at the same time cares deeply for those he feels responsible for. He comes at the case from the other side of the fence, trying to find out what happened to his partner and his search adds an interesting angle to the overall mystery. Plus, not being a cop, Clay gets to do things in a way that JD and Stevie can't afford to do, without jeopardising their case. I particularly liked his conversations with Mazzetti, as they're very funny and play to the stereotypes of the usual portrayal of cop versus PI interactions.
