THIS WOULD BE ONE OF STUART S BETTER OFFERINGS would be one of Stuart s better offerings things went downhill after a couple chapters Stuart s writing is so repetitive her banter is much the same from book to book and her villains aren t that great In fact I guessed who the villain was in the first hundred ages and I never even TRY to guess these thingsThe heroine did the thing all Stuart heroines seem to do decide in the dead of night when she can t sleep that she s going to go to wherever the hero is and let him know she doesn t want him Uh huh Keep telling yourself that And of course she just happens to have Unlucky Charm (I Love Genie, put on impractical underwear moments earlier No one is fooled because we all know theseointless confrontations end in sex Not that I m complaining but I wish these women wouldn t have such a dumb thought rocessAlthough the characters were amusing at times and the hero was one of Stuart s nicer ones this was rather forgettable I thought it was an okay book I definitely enjoyed itThe remise is a great one because the hero himself doesn t know if he s good or bad yet you root for him from the very beginningview spoilerI mean obviously he didn t do it It would be cool if he did though hide spoiler Sophie Davis has bought her dream Undercover Virgin property andlans to convert it into a bed and breakfast It s idyllic setting besides the lake is erfect and just what Sophie has always dreamed of However the same lake was also the sight a gruesome triple murder 20 years before Thomas Griffin was arrested for the murders when he was a teenager and then later acuitted if only he knew whether or not he actually committed them the whole night is a blank in his memory and he has returned to the lake to discover if he really did commit the murders or if someone else framed him This was a good read it didn t rock my world but it had enough suspense sexy times and romance to make me enjoy it But although I did enjoy Still Lake I am glad this wasn t the first book I read by Anne Stuart as it hasn t left me in a rush to read anything else by her Which would be a mistake as I have read some fantastic books by Anne Stuart especially her historicalsBut this did have her trademark bad boy hero who at first seems cold and ruthless but you soon find yourself falling for anyways Anne Stuart excels at writing about the kind of boys your mama warned you about Her heroine Sophie seemed to be his olar opposite soft and caring but still stubborn and strong enough to garner his attentionSophie and Thomas were by far the best thing about the book Their chemistry was sizzling hot even though their relationship especially at the beginning was fairly hostile they had an undeniable attraction that neither character wanted but couldn t seem to help Unfortunately the suspense element of the book wasn t uite as good although a few red herrings were thrown out I had guessed the culprit Trouble pretty early in the book and wasn t wrong A good read even if it wasredictable but if you are looking for a steamy romance and aren t too concerned about guessing whodunit it is worth Hogan picking up and giving it a try I can read any Ann Stuart s books over and over again and will still be on tender hooks from start to finish of her stories Still Lake was firstublished in 2002 and I have read it a few times and my enjoyment is still the same as the first timeSophie Davis is such a fabulous heroineshe s so damm realis not afraid to eat her own awesome muffinswho cares about the calories I so so engaged with her ersona leaving the rat race behind her ersona Leaving the rat race behind has Gender and Multiculturalism purchased a farmhouse in the Vermont countryside which she intends turning into a fabulous bb Only to discover that theroperty has some unsavor.
