From Publishers Weekly
In bestseller Jackson’s spine-tingling romantic thriller, the turbo-charged follow-up to Shiver (2006), photographer Abby Chastain, who played a major role in Shiver, finds she may have a half-sister in Eve Renner, the adopted daughter of Dr. Terrence Renner, former head psychiatrist at Our Lady of Virtues Mental Hospital, a shuttered asylum near (pre-Katrina) New Orleans. When “the Reviver,” a tattoo-loving psychopath intent on revenge, almost kills Eve, the amnesia-plagued Eve fears Cole Dennis, her lawyer boyfriend, might be the monster, since she saw him at the scene of her assault (and a friend’s murder), though Cole is released for lack of evidence. The body count mounts through many unexpected twists and turns as a grim Det. Reuben Montoya, Abby’s fiancé, and his partner, Rick Bentz, try to puzzle out the killer’s cryptic clues before he strikes again. A heart-stopping resolution suggests another heavy-breathing update might be in the works. (Apr.)

From Batty’s Girl

Meh, I just wasn’t taken with this book.  I had started it last week but only finished it yesterday.  Those of you who know my reading habits have all the proof you need right there that it just wasn’t what I needed to catch my interest.

I know that when you read there is a certain suspension of belief, but in this case, I couldn’t suspend common sense enough not to find Eve an idiot.
