Not the SW I'm used to, November 24, 2011

If You Hear Her Binding: Paperback Publisher: Random House Publish Date: 2011/10/25 Synopsis: When the police dismiss her claim that she heard a woman screaming in the woods behind her house, Lena Riddle teams up with Ezra King, who is on leave from the state police and is the only person willing to help her investigate
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...

IF YOU HEAR HER, by Shiloh Walker, is the phenomenal kick-off to a great adult suspense series. I will read anything that Walker writes because her characters and plots are flawless and thought-provoking. In her newest trilogy she creates a spine-tingling thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. And as always, her love scenes and romantic chemistry is steaming hot!This book starts off the Ash Trilogy with a bang. Lena, a blind chef, and Ezra, a detective on medical leave, team up to investigate after Lena hears screams in the night. They have an immediate connection that runs deep emotionally and physically and is undoubtedly electric. I really loved the dynamic between Lena and Ezra. Ezra has a troubled past that keeps him secluded in Ash, Kentucky, but when he spots the gorgeous Lena his heart begins to beat again. It was interesting to have a blind character as one of the MC's. I was interested to see how Walker would handle that but as usually she was...

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...
