She died of heart failure on April 21, at the age of Bowker Author Biography. Graham, Heather. Hall, James W. Then there's the fact that if you haven't read some of the other Griffin Powell books, especially the one about Griff and Nic, The Murder Game , you'll probably end up a bit confused about all the references to Griff's past. There's just a lot of backstory going on there. It wasn't an issue for me since I've read those books but I can see how others would end up confused.
In the end, the suspense plot is pretty average.
I've read ones a lot better, and I've read ones a lot worse. It's a twisted story and when you finish, you don't have a lot of answers because the book basically continues right into the next one with a cliffhanger ending. Which makes me glad I have it waiting for me to read.
Til Death Do Us Part by Beverly Barton (ePUB)
As for the romance I'm tempted to say, what romance? But I can't because there is enough of one to say there is a romance, but for me, it was a rather flat and lackluster one. Maleah isn't entirely likable.
She's very judgmental toward's Derek, getting offended by the smallest niceties, like opening a door for her. She's antagonistic toward him for a good chunk of the book. And when things shift between them, it comes off as weird and forced.
Dead by Morning
I just didn't not feel the connection. When they jump to the next level near the end, things go at mach speed and I was left shaking my head, not believing the supposed romance between them. This part of the book could have been so much better and it's disappointing because Barton has written great romances in her books in the past.
On a technical note, I was also distracted at times by the over attention to detail. You'd get a whole paragraph over something as simple as opening a door or some other mundane task.
It was irritating because it was overkill and unnecessary. Yeah, not a very positive review, I admit. It was a book that didn't really do it for me. But I still feel bad for being critical when the author has passed away. I can definitely tell you that if you read this one, you'll want to have the next book standing by because of the lack of answers you get in this one.
And yet I can't say I'm all that thrilled to read the next book. Summary: There is a killer who is hunting down killing agents of the Powell Agency and members of their families. Griffin Powell i Yeah Griffin Powell is convinced the killer an evil, sadistic bastard from his past, but he doesn't see how that can be possible since the man is dead.
He sets two of his best agents, Derek Lawrence and Maleah Purdue to investigate every lead possible. As Maleah and Derek try to figure out who is killing those connected with the Powell Agency, more and more people die. They have to unwind a twisted puzzle of leads and misleads before someone else loses their life. In the process, secrets are revealed that could destroy lives and Maleah and Derek realize they can turn to each other during these tough times.
Review: I debated quite a bit with myself over whether I wanted to write a review for this book. It seems almost disrespectful to write a critical review of a book whose author passed away not long after it was published.
But I don't write my reviews to be malicious. I just give my honest opinion. I've read a lot of Beverly Barton's books and she used to be a romantic suspense author that I eagerly awaited each new book. But then her books began to change, involving less and less romance and more straight-up suspense.
What romance there was came off underdeveloped and forced. For me, that didn't work.
I'm a fan of romantic suspense. I don't mind if the suspense part is the more dominant aspect but I still want a solid romance to go with it. And Barton's book started to miss on that point. It was very disappointing from an author who used to tell such great romantic suspense stories. Honestly, I wouldn't have read this book and wouldn't read the one that follows this one if it were for the fact that I've read a number of the Griffin Powell books and really want to know the rest of Griff's story.
That's really the only reason I bought this one. I would have passed otherwise because Barton's type of romantic suspense just didn't work for me anymore. And even after I bought it I still held off on reading it because I heard there was a huge cliffhanger at the end and I wanted to have the next book first so I wouldn't have to read a cliffhanger and then wait for the next book.
Of course, Ms. Barton passed away after this book came out and fans were left wondering if the next book would come. Thankfully, she had already finished the next book, the final one in the "Dead By" trilogy, Dead By Nightfall , which supposedly wraps-up the Griffin Powell mystery.Graham, Heather. I'm a fan of romantic suspense.
And not just little tidbits, but whole scenes of characters living happy lives, letting you get to know them, like them, and then they get butchered. Barton passed away after this book came out and fans were left wondering if the next book would come.
I'm only going to read it to get those last answers about the mystery of Griffin Powell. It just struck me as rather unoriginal.
