This is book one of a trilogy, and the plot centres around a serial rapist/killer/bad bad man living in the small town of Ash, Kentucky, and the rest of its inhabitants. You should be made aware, I think, that you will not get a resolution to the mystery in this book; that is set to span the entire trilogy. I wasn't aware of it, I thought we'd get a separate mystery for each new couple, so I threw a little paddy when it finished with everything still up in the air. If I'd have known going in I think it would have helped, but, luckily, I at least already had all three books to hand. If I'd have had to wait for the next ones to be released? Well, let's not even go there...

But even with things unsolved you still get lots of glimpses and clues to whet your appetite. It's written third-person omniscient and we enter the mind of the killer and his victims at times which is more than a little disturbing. He's a real nasty one that's for sure. I'm pretty sure the killer is going to turn out to be a character we met in this book, but I don't have the first clue who it is at the moment. To be honest I had a bit of trouble keeping all the names straight in my head of all the secondary characters and the police and the victims. And then sometimes people would address a character by their surname (which naturally I'd forgotten) and I had no idea who they meant.

So it wasn't without a few hiccups but I did find the romance quite sweet. It took until way into the second half to get going but I enjoyed it once it did. Lena is a blind chef, fiercely independent. Ezra is a cop on leave after an 'incident', taking a time-out to see if he wants to remain in the job. I liked their interactions and how sweet Ezra was about Lena's blindness. He didn't coddle her which I, and she, appreciated.

IF YOU HEAR HER was a riveting tale, keeping me on the edge of my seat as I followed all the twists and turns this story took. There was never a mundane moment in the entire book, as I tried to piece together the great mystery of who the killer was.
I loved how Lena strove to keep her independence and admired Ezra for not taking anything away from her, sure there were a few times he was tempted to, but he was smart enough to know when and where the line was drawn. The chemistry between Lena and Ezra positively sizzled from the moment they first met. They both had their vulnerabilities that made me root all the more for their HEA (happily ever after).
Be warned though this book has a CLIFFHANGER ending, and you will have to immediately get IF YOU SEE HER and IF YOU KNOW HER! There are certain clues throughout the book that you will want to have to refresh in your mind to see if you can correctly guess the identity of the killer. As I finished IF YOU HEAR HER, I had NO clue if it's someone I'd already been introduced to, someone who was discussed or if the killers name wasn't mentioned at all.

**NOTE: I am on Shiloh Walker's street team, but I read and reviewed this book before joining. It's books like this that drew me to her**

4 3/4 stars!
"If You Hear Her" is the first of a suspenseful romantic trilogy by Shiloh Walker. Lena Riddle depends on her canine companion, Puck, to help her maintain her hard-won independence and considers herself pretty self-reliant despite her lack of sight. She is unwillingly drawn to Ezra King who has returned to town and is working on the house he inherited from his grandmother. Ezra is in the middle of a personal crisis related to his work as a police officer and is reluctant to complicate his life even further by acting on the attraction that he feels for the sexy chef until events conspire to throw them together and arouse his protective instincts as well as his libido. The sound of a woman's terrified cries galvanize Lena to reach out for help and her refusal to accept the cavalier dismissal of her claims place her squarely in the sights of a deranged killer. Lena inadvertently draws her friend Law Reilly into the middle of the chaos even as he is trying to deal with another wounded soul, Hope Carson, who is fleeing her own nightmare. The small town of Ash, Kentucky will never be the same but the question is, who will still be around to notice the changes?

Wow! What a thrill ride! I am impressed and my mind has been expanded since it would never ever occur to me that a blind person could be a chef although I know what wonderful things service dogs can help achieve. The chemistry between the characters is true to Ms Walker's normal high standards, showcasing her facility for creating a vivid picture of the events which form the prickly and complex personalities that give such depth to the relationships that blossom in her books.

Really liked this 1st book in the three book series by Shiloh Walker loved that Lena is blind and you dont really know untill chapter 2 its a way of saying her blindness is not her just a part of her, loved that!
Lena hears a scream in the woods outside her window and tells the cops but as they cant see or find anything they pat her on the head and walk away, Ezra King is on leave from the state police recovering from the death of his lover/partner and a knee injury, he is drawn to Lena but without giving away too much gun shy from his last relationship, so after a great dinner with her doesnt call for three weeks he is there the day Lena is at the police station reporting the scream and steps in when the cop clearly is patronizing Lena, when he hears the story his instincts tell him Lena is in danger so he sets out to protect and posses her I loved this I loved the way the killer/rapist is in the town and you have no idea who it is this is going to go on to at least the next book so be warned! But the story is great the characters are great gutted about the way one is murdered as i loved that one!! wont say who!) no idea who the killer is yet, book 2 if you see her is about Hope and Remy who are a big part of this book and i assume Hopes nasty ex as well as the killer who is still on the loose, already pre ordered this but I recommend If you hear her, it kept me reading kept me wondering and kept me hoping for all the characters really good 1st book in a series hope book 2 and three are as good!

HASH(0x953fcac8) out of 5 stars Incomplete 30 Aug. 2012
By Kate 50 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
You should know going in that not until the third book in the trilogy is the villain revealed. I found it annoying that in order to get the complete story I had to buy all 3 books and then the ending as it related to a wrap up of all the characters still felt incomplete. I won't buy anymore from this author and certainly wouldn't have bought this book had I known I'd have to buy the other two to get one complete story. Really annoying and a waste of money!

HASH(0x953fcd14) out of 5 stars What a cliffhanger 30 Oct. 2011
By Cindy O - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
If it was the authors intent to get you so invested in all the characters and then leave you hanging until January dying to know what happens next then she succeeded. The end of this book has so many cliffhangers.

As this was the first book in the series its a little slow going at first as we get to meet the characters. Actually the first character we get to meet is the killer and his victim. We do not get to find out who the killer is in this book. I dont even had a guess yet as to who the killer is.

Lena is the main heroine of this book. She is blind and a chef. She hears a woman screaming in the middle of the night but when she goes to the police they dont believe her.

Ezra is our main hero and he is in Ash on leave from the police dept after being shot and finding out his female partner and lover was dirty. He is in the police station when Lena comes in and he decides he is going to help her.

Their love story wasnt full of conflict or back on forth - its was a steady flow through out the book.

We also meet and get POVs from Remy Jennings who is the DA in Ash (he is the hero in the second book). Then we have Hope (heroine of 2nd book) who comes to Ash at the request of her best friend Law Reilly (who is also Lena's best friend) who is a suspense author (and hero of the 3rd book). Hope was severely abused by her ex husband who is a cop and she is not the most mentally stable person due to this. We do briefly at the end of this book get to meet Nia (the heroine of the 3rd book)

IMO - there really isnt a way to talk about this book without giving away the plot points of the book which I think the reader needs to experience for themselves.

I am not happy I have to wait until January for Remy and Hope's book {{wink}}

HASH(0x953fccd8) out of 5 stars Slow first half, tense second half, then a complete dud 17 Jun. 2012
By Voracious Reader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
It took me several weeks (literally) to make my way through the first half of this novel. At that halfway point, it was the least involving of any Shiloh Walker book I've ever read.
FINALLY, in the second half, the plot really got going--and I needed to know the resolution of the murder mystery. I was hooked.
BUT, at the end, the core mystery is left totally unsolved--not only unsolved, but without any hint whatsoever of how (or whether) it might be resolved in the next volume of this trilogy.
INSTEAD, the book ended with a hugely anticlimactic "resolution" of the romance between Lena and Ezra. Any obstacles to that romantic conclusion had disappeared chapters ago--unless you expected the author to kill them off. No credibility there.
So... I will NOT be reading the next novel in the series.

HASH(0x953fcfcc) out of 5 stars Short Attention Span Theater 2 Nov. 2012
By Bella Rosa - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've finally identified Shiloh Walker's writing style. It's like a reality tv show where a line is teased just before and just after every commercial break for weeks, so that by the time it occurs in context you've heard it 20 times. "Ezra didn't want to be friends with Lena. Well, he wanted to be friends. He didn't want to be just friends." Back in 60 seconds.

I don't know why Walker assumes her readers have the attention spans of gnats and must be reminded every 6 pages about the friends pact between Ezra and Lena, or that Hope & Law grew up together. I even managed to retain that the deputy's a jerk, and didn't need the recount of the first encounter every time he showed up in a scene. It's a shame because the characters are interesting and dimensional; the plot's just convoluted enough. But I'm tired of wading through the endless repetitions. If there's no backstory to recount for the fifteenth time, the characters repeat themselves and each other. A decent editor would have turned this into a tight, exciting novella.

HASH(0x9528a4e0) out of 5 stars Not the SW I'm used to 25 Nov. 2011
By PNR Aficionado - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Others have done a great job of summarizing the plot so I'll just offer my opinion, for what it's worth...

I like Shiloh Walker's work, usuallly.

For the first time I'm having trouble making myself finish one of her stories. I've actually bought and read 8 other books, from other authors, in-between trying to read this one. It simply doesn't hold my interest. The character's themelves are interesting, the storyline is great, so what's the problem?

I feel like a pinball as the author knocks me from peg to peg as she shifts to differing P'sOV. While all the points of view are elemental to the story, I'm just getting involved with one (or two) of the characters and it suddenly shifts. It's almost as though Walker was trying TOO hard. I've found myself paging through the 'bad guys' POV as well as those of a few minor characters just to get back to Lena and Ezra. In other words, I've read less than 1/2 the book, as I've skimmed only enough to fill in the pertinent details. I'm aware that the rest of the story is set up for the rest of the series but I feel it really detracts from what could have been an emotional and personal growth journey of the leads.

I have the next 2 of this series on pre-order but am wondering if there is a way to cancel them. Anyone know?
