    Still Waters by Tami Hoga is a great romantic thriller which hits right from the first page.We have an Amish community,a normal close knit town, 2 killers one so unlikely murders obviously a police sheriff and a new outsider newspaper editor who slowly falls in love so we get a HEA There are many many up and downs twists and turns which all links together to make the grand final.It s been a while since I ve read this author and I can t wait to read and re read her other books.I m definit Still Waters by Tami Hoga is a great romantic thriller which hits right from the first page.We have an Amish community,a normal close knit town, 2 killers one so unlikely murders obviously a police sheriff and a new outsider newspaper editor who slowly falls in love so we get a HEA There are many many up and downs twists and turns which all links together to make the grand final.It s been a while since I ve read this author and I can t wait to read and re read her other books.I m definitely recommending this

    I really liked the mystery in this one and I like Ms Hoag s writing, but I wasn t enad with the leading MCs What kept me reading was the plot of who killed the wealthy sleazeball in the town of Still Creek The suspense is well paced and with some additional deaths and attacks and missing tourist, the mystery keeps you guessing.Elizabeth has just gone through a horror of a divorce with her ex husband making her look like a slut who will sleep with anything With looks and a reputation ever I really liked the mystery in this one and I like Ms Hoag s writing, but I wasn t enad with the leading MCs What kept me reading was the plot of who killed the wealthy sleazeball in the town of Still Creek The suspense is well paced and with some additional deaths and attacks and missing tourist, the mystery keeps you guessing.Elizabeth has just gone through a horror of a divorce with her ex husband making her look like a slut who will sleep with anything With looks and a reputation every guy she meets is making passes with the assumption that she will sleep with them In reality, she s a struggling single mom just trying to create a life for herself and her troubled son I thought Ms Hoag did a really good job with how the son was woven into the plot Elizabeth is involved from two standpoints, first she discovered the dead body and second she owns the local paper Elizabeth herself should have been a likable character but with her calling everyone she meets Sugar as part of her southern characterization, I got where I didn t want her in a scene One two many Sugars for me.Dane is the Sheriff and is responsible for solving the crime s He doesn t do a very good job as he wants to blame a transient and not do his due diligence He doesn t want to look at any of the citizens in his town Also, he is a complete jerk to Elizabeth believing all the lies and treating her like a slut But he feels he s justified as his ex wife did a number on him Aside from looks, he didn t seem to have any redeeming qualities I really disliked him.The romance didn t work for me He was such a jerk ass that I just can t see falling for him He treats her poorly so she has the hots for him It came off as just hot sex and not a relationship Definitely not romantic.The suspense was 5 stars, but Dane was a 1 star and Elizabeth was a 2 star so I averaged it out to a 3 star rating As I really did like Ms Hoag s writing and the plot, I will definitely give her books another go

    Well this wasn t my favorite Tami Hoag Probably because I hated the male lead Dane in this one Going through a bad divorce years earlier and deciding the female lead Elizabeth must be a gold digger and only want one thing from men was gross The murder mystery seemed to be getting overlooked a lot I thought in order for them to spar and then of course they end up in bed Also the character development of both Dane and Elizabeth was poor And Hoag for some bizarre reason kept having Elizabe Well this wasn t my favorite Tami Hoag Probably because I hated the male lead Dane in this one Going through a bad divorce years earlier and deciding the female lead Elizabeth must be a gold digger and only want one thing from men was gross The murder mystery seemed to be getting overlooked a lot I thought in order for them to spar and then of course they end up in bed Also the character development of both Dane and Elizabeth was poor And Hoag for some bizarre reason kept having Elizabeth run around talking like a cliche since she was from Texas When we get the reveal of who murdered the town s bully and overall scumbag I went really Not a very good showing of Hoag s writing skills I thought Still Waters follows divorcee Elizabeth who has moved from Texas to Minnesota to start over again Her teenage son and her are looking for a fresh start after the tabloid press hounded Elizabeth out of town Elizabeth now runs the local paper and is hoping that she can eventually get her house together and grow closer to her son After dealing with a car mishap, Elizabeth goes for help at a nearby construction site Once there she finds Jarrold Jarvis who had his throat slashed and was left in his car The town sheriff, Dane, is a local boy who made it to the NFL but then had to return home again He finds himself angry and distrustful of women and reporters so as far as he is concerned Elizabeth isn t someone that can be trusted and he decides that she must knowthan she is telling When attacks ramp up and the guilty party that everyone thinks did it turns up dead, the town of Still Creek is left wondering if the person who murdered Jarrold is one of them.I can t say much besides Elizabeth being a reporter made zero sense with her background She got a divorce settlement, but deciding to move to Minnesota to buy a paper made zero sense to me It didn t help that we didn t really see her off there reporting or anything Dane was terrible He pretty much decides after a while that he and Elizabeth are going to have sex with each other and this is after he s pretty awful to her for the first half of the book.Both leads have teens who havesense than their parents.The other characters in this one are not given much to do The book just flips flops between people and you keep forgetting that there s a murder to solve There s even an Amish carpenter in this one and I have to say that there s no way any Amish person would work for the English so that whole thing kept taking me out of the book.The writing was okay but the flow was pretty bad I think after a while the book was just spinning it s wheels The ending was a letdown We find out who did it, but it didn t make much sense to me and I have to say that the book left some plot holes open that I don t even want to know they would get addressed

    Fabulous book if you love the court room CSI type books like me I also like that they add in just a little twist of romance to it Not enough to make you wanna put it down and puke but just enough to keep you interested in that part of the story.

    A fairly enjoyable romantic suspense, although I didn t particularly enjoy either of the main characters I felt the book was a little slow in places, but this is an author I will be readingof.

    I bought this book at a sale since I wanted to read a new author , the book was cheap , and the blurb was not too bad and then I read the book.It is the very first book that I can remember where I skipped lines in paragraphs and whole paragraphs themselves without missing a single significant event.I just wanted the misery of reading this to come to end.It reads like a love story with 2 of the main characters sparring with each other like they are at war but in their hearts they are like soul I bought this book at a sale since I wanted to read a new author , the book was cheap , and the blurb was not too bad and then I read the book.It is the very first book that I can remember where I skipped lines in paragraphs and whole paragraphs themselves without missing a single significant event.I just wanted the misery of reading this to come to end.It reads like a love story with 2 of the main characters sparring with each other like they are at war but in their hearts they are like soul mates The entire book is all about that.The book is approximately 450 pages long but if the writing was to the point without overly exaggerating every single line on people s faces, it would have been done in 30 pages.The irritating part is the level of detail that the author goes into without any real value add.For example, the son of the heroine goes for an interview and rides his 12 speed bike and reaches the spot all sweaty So he goes into the Texaco washroom , washes his face , tries to use the tissue paper to wipe himself , looks at the mirror, untucks his shirt , then wipes himself with the tissue as then retucks his shirt , looks at himself again in the mirror, curses his life cause he is 16 and going through some tumoil, walks out of the washroom and walks down to the place of the interview.Phew what exact value does this line add to the reader other than getting really irritated.The main characters need a real shake down in parenting and leading their lives cause even a fairy tale has a better story line.If there was a negative star , this would have deserved a place there.Tami Hoag, I am sure you are a very nice person but I am really irritated cause you took time off from me reading a much better piece of work.This is going into my do not ever buy again author list.Conclusion If you are on a desert island and don t have any recreation, you can read it and let it swim out to sea If not , don t ever read it

    Tami Hoag is quickly becoming a favorite author I like a shivery, suspenseful murder mystery without being bogged down with details and gore I ll save Kay Scarpetta for the best medical examiner ever, though.I don t think Still Waters is part of any series, like her Elena Estes series or the Bayou Breaux series both are worth a read.Elizabeth Stuart is a twice divorced Texan who has gone from poor to rich back to poor and has packed up her life after her rich second ex husband shredd Tami Hoag is quickly becoming a favorite author I like a shivery, suspenseful murder mystery without being bogged down with details and gore I ll save Kay Scarpetta for the best medical examiner ever, though.I don t think Still Waters is part of any series, like her Elena Estes series or the Bayou Breaux series both are worth a read.Elizabeth Stuart is a twice divorced Texan who has gone from poor to rich back to poor and has packed up her life after her rich second ex husband shredded her name and reputation to Atlanta society and her teenage son and moved to Minnesota Still Creek, Minnesota The only tie she has there is a college roommate who was like a sister to her, since Elizabeth has no family Elizabeth buys the town s newspaper, thus becoming an outsider and a reporter, neither of which earn her much trust in the town The last big mistake she made was stumbling upon the body of Jarrold Jarvis, his throat slashed and his body slumped over in his car.Somewhere in the mess, she reports the truth, her son is a suspect, an Amishman gets a little forbidden crush on her as he repairs her house, and the local sheriff butts heads with her It doesn t help that the sheriff s teenage daughter and her teenage son decide they like each other.As far as characters go, I like all of the ones thrown in There aren t too many to try to sort out, but enough to pick your suspects from I was right by the way, I just don t think it was believable, if that makes sense Pace, timing, setting, Hoag s got it I wouldn t mind a littleforensics since we ARE dealing with a modern day murder mystery Intriguing enough to pick up another book by this author Don t expect too much and you ll be fine

    Great mystery, so so romance I really love Tami Hoag s early romances and I am puzzled how an author who does romance so well and mystery so well, can t seem to blend to two in this book.Elizabeth has been kicked to the curb by her SOB, rich ex husband She and her son land in Still Creek, MI and she buys the local paper She also has to fend off everything with a dick due to the SOB ex and his lies during their media circus divorce She finds the dead body of the town s wealthy sleaze and ever Great mystery, so so romance I really love Tami Hoag s early romances and I am puzzled how an author who does romance so well and mystery so well, can t seem to blend to two in this book.Elizabeth has been kicked to the curb by her SOB, rich ex husband She and her son land in Still Creek, MI and she buys the local paper She also has to fend off everything with a dick due to the SOB ex and his lies during their media circus divorce She finds the dead body of the town s wealthy sleaze and everyone assumes she slept with him and most believe she killed him including the county Sheriff, Dane He believes everything the media wrote about her, until he gets to know her and then he changes his mind But his ex did a number on him and he wants nothing but sex from any woman, even Elizabeth

    This was a possible 3 1 2 stars It was a bit on the predictable fluffy side The character development was pretty decent The twist wasn t badit was a good idea although I figured it out long before it was revealed One thing that grated on my nerves a bit was the main character s use of the term of endearment sugar I realize she was southern but she ran it in the ground a bit I listened to this one and the narration was fantastic It was read by Joyce Bean.
