Chasing The Night (2010)
4.1 of 5 Votes: 1
The mystery and suspense were fantastic, but I didn't like the chemestry betweeen Catherine and Joe getting in the way; you were always waiting, expecting there to be an affair at any moment. I love the relationship between Eve & Joe and their bond, and was getting bothered that it was going to h...
Taking Eve (2013)
3.95 of 5 Votes: 1
I'd been reading Iris Johansen forever - since her first book was published - but quit several years ago because her books became full of melodrama, and totally unrealistic characters and plots. Yet, the concept of a forensic sculptor that helps bring missing children "home", still draws me back ...
Silencing Eve (2013)
3.97 of 5 Votes: 1
I had a really hard time rating this book. While I love Eve Duncan, this trilogy really would have been better off as a single book in the larger series. It was very wordy and left me wondering if the author was simply trying to develop a higher word count so as to create and sell more books. Tha...

It starts with an art show. Jane is exhibiting her paintings at her friend Celine's Paris gallery and having great success. However, one of her paintings - Guilt - has attracted the attention of a cult based on worship of Judas. Though the image of the man in the painting came to Jane in a dream,...

Finally, we know what happened to Eve's beautiful, red headed, 7yr old little girl, Bonnie! It has been a long time coming. The three books prior to this one gave us great insight on Eve, Quinn, John, and Bonnie. It allowed the reader to understand everything that occurred from that persons point...
Storm Cycle (2009)
3.82 of 5 Votes: 3
Sometimes even the strongest characters can have faults that ruin parts a book. Such is the case with Rachel Kirby. I understand the bond between siblings. But this character is over the top when it comes to her sister Allie. And it can be annoying. Dedication is one thing, but obsession is anoth...
Perfect Witness, The (2014)

Once in a while, I read a book with no BDSM in it. Yes, my GR friends are in shock. I've been a fan of Ms. Johansen since her historical romance days. Her contemporary romantic suspense have me coming back for more. Her line of paranormal-esque ones are a bit iffy for me. Still, it is Ms. Jo...
With Open Eyes (2012)

Excellent short story however, I was frustrated when it ended as I wanted it to continue. It was that good. My curiosity is now in overdrive !! Iris Johansen is a favorite of mine & this is the first time I've read a collaboration between her and Roy Johansen. I wasn't disappointed. The bes...

I was kind of let down by this one.And, don't get me wrong, I realize that Iris Johansen novels are brain candy. They're not intended to be mind-blowing literature. But this one just didn't seem to be as well put together as other offerings from her.Things I Liked: the character of Sean Galen. If...
On the Run (2005)
4.01 of 5 Votes: 1
This must've been written before Iris Johansen really got her game on. Her Eve Duncan series is more familiar, and definitely shows how she has come with suspense/thriller writing."On the Run" was read in less than 24 hours, it's a very fast, not-too-deep thinking read. If you like Iris Johansen ...

This book was about a young woman named Melis who is a marine researcher. She doesn't have any real family left except for her step-father, Phil Lontana. Phil is an oceanographer who is in search of an acient underwater city, the lost city of Merinth. He had been searching for the underwater city...

You can read more of my reviews, faster, at my blog, The Armchair Librarian.I've noticed that a lot of romantic suspense authors originally started out with historical romance. Iris Johansen, Catherine Coulter, and Kay Hooper are just a few who made the switch. Iris Johansen is the author of the ...

I didn’t read the blurb of this book until I finished it and have to say… what is the blurb about? I made it through this book despite hating Jean Marc… I HATED him. Every time I read anything he did said or thought I was like “Erh I hate this guy… GO AWAY” and then there was Phillipe ! urghHowev...

WARNING RANT AHEADAfter tossing and turning all night, I decided that I would set my mind free and lower the rating to this book. The rational side of me decided to come out and point out everything that was wrong with this book and why giving this book a rating of 4 would be a horrible idea. Yes...
The Face Of Deception (1999)

**Side Note:This book would be my second exposure or debut into mystery and suspense being the primary genre. My first being Killer Instinct by Zoe Sharp from the Charlie Fox Thriller series. The prologue blew me away! I could feel the agony that Eve Duncan was going through, especially when it ...

He was Black Robert of Craighdhu, a rogue of the highest order, answerable to no one except the people of Craighdhu. There was nothing he wouldn't risk and nothing more important to Robert MacDarren than his Scottish Highland home. A man who really cares nothing for the political intrigue and mac...

This was a great story! I love Kendra's personality and determination. She is bound to take care of herself and her brother no matter the cost. Until the sexy Joel Damon enters the picture. Joel comes off a little arrogant at first, but I still liked him. But as the story moves on, he's actually ...

19th Century Balkan Romance - A Great One!I first discovered Iris Johansen when I read The Magnificent Rogue--a truly excellent historical romance. I then read Midnight Warrior that didn't reach that standard (and reviewed it as such). I say that so you know I don't always give her 5 stars. But I...

CLEVER PLOT AND PROMISES OF MANY MORE EVE STORIESIMO:You have to presuppose that the reader has an abhorrence of `disturbing the dead', or had a clear understanding and sides with the concept of `returning home' the remains of a murdered loved one. Frankly, I have neither. I was raised next door ...
Blind Alley (2005)

Blind Alley: An Eve Duncan Forensics Thriller is a book I found via the online public library, so I went into it not realizing it was part of a series. It made some sense despite that, though; Ms. Johansen made this book stand alone fairly well.Jane and Trevor are interesting characters. I did fe...

This is definitely the most unique setting I've read about in a historical novel. In 1503 Italy, Lionello Andreas is seeking to regain a treasure that was stolen from his family - the Wind Dancer - and to do it, he is on the search for a great thief. His search brings him to Florence where he mak...
