This book has quite a few important characters and doesn't really focus primarily on the hero and heroine. I was glad to see more of Jazzy and Caleb, as I wasn't convinced that issues between them were resolved after the second book in the series. I felt much better about their chances for a happy ever As Good as Dead was a very good romantic suspense novel.
I felt much better about their chances for a happy ever after when I read this book. Although I really enjoyed the first book of the trilogy, this one was my favorite. Reve Sorrell and Jazzy Talbot believe that they are twin sisters. When a DNA test confirms this, Reve hires a prominent private detective to investigate the truth of their parentage.
As Reve and Jazzy spend time together getting to know one another, a killer who has strangled redheaded victims for thirty years begins to lose control. As the frequency of his killing sprees intensify, Jazzy, and later Reve, become targets of his rage and desire. The danger around the twins increases as someone else has reason to want them dead as well.
The animosity that has been present since Reve met Jacob Butler escalates and then finally collapses as they give in to desire for one another. Tangled events and individuals complicate the lives of Jazzy and Reve, and as they learn their history, their lives are placed in even greater risk. Although Jacob and Caleb are determined to protect them, it may not be enough. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although there were some events related to Jazzy that I would have preferred not to have happened.
However, I was satisfied at how everything turned out in the end. They were all great characters, and I enjoyed reading about their relationships. Sep 05, Katherine Grey rated it it was ok. This is the first Cherokee Point based novel I've read. I had real problems with how nearly everyone in town was portrayed. Some of the stereotypes of Southern people were downright insulting. I also didn't like how Jacob kept being referred to as a savage quarter breed because he is one quarter Native American. Being Native American doesn't make someone a savage and being only one quarter shouldn't even play into anything.
He's three-quarters something else more than he is Native American. I al This is the first Cherokee Point based novel I've read.
I also had a hard time liking Reve. She may have grown up in a well to do family, but it doesn't make her better than anyone else, but she spent nearly the entire book looking down her nose at everyone she came in contact with. The romance between Reve and Jacob was also completely unbelievable. They hate each other on sight, try to avoid each other at all cost, or insult each other whenever they are forced to endure each other's presense.
They rarely interact with each other throughout most of the book but then with approximately or so pages left in the book, they suddenly are attracted to each other and have passionate sex and decide they love each other. I'm not going to read the other books in the series. Meanwhile, redheaded women are being murdered with a black ribbon tied around their necks. Of course, Reve and Jazzy are both redheads and you can see where this is going. Genny continues to see her visions of the murders. Sheriff Jacob Butler features strongly in this sequel.
