Let us prey5By katbot 1311This was a real good read! It had it all. There was murder,suspense,good characters,and romance.
Interesting twists and turns!5By svenscjThis is the first book I read by this author. I enjoy her style of writing, specifically how the characters are built into the story. This book was fun and interesting — I could see the characters in my mind. I will be reading the next novel soon. Enjoy!
Let Us Prey3By Happytchr1Not my cup of tea. Simplistic plot you can see from a mile away, the author over explaining throughout. Female protagonist helped by a strong male in a position of authority. Yawn. And setting up a straight character with a gay one to engage in coy behavior or dialogue? It’s insulting.
Let us prey5By L A RootsGood read.
A Real Page Turner!!!4By KWJNI wasn't sure what to expect with this book, just based on the cover picture. I couldn't put it down!! I loved her writing style and the story moved along so I just had to keep reading.
Ehh1By Big Pimpin 5I'm a sucker for mysteries especially ones with a bit of romance but this book doesn't do it for me. The characters aren't very interesting and the story moves very slow. There's a paragraph in the book that made me believe the author is a bit racist and that just made me put the book down. Waste of time.
Fun new series5By dulabThis first book of the Gotcha Detective Agency hooked me. I found the characters interesting, and the plot had me guessing who the bad guy was! A quick, easy read that was loads of fun. Can't wait to read the second book in the series.
Let Us Prey5By Tenderloin56Good characters and plot. A bit hard to put down by the middle of the book.
Great read5By melvalenzI thoroughly enjoyed this book. I can't wait to read more!
Let Us Prey1By OnnaloraSooooo many things in this story just don't jell. Scott's technical skills are good---with exception of personal pronouns. He/him, she/her, them/their present problems for this writer. A few pages in I was grinding my teeth. This is a thin story that moves slowly and doesn't go anywhere. (1) The characters aren't well developed; particularly the killer. (2) There is vampire "activity" but it's play acting--literally. The players meet downtown once a week for purposes that are never clear. (3) The detective's hormones give her grief. She lusts after male upon male. That too goes nowhere. Irritating. Scott may be setting up content for subsequent books. For instance, the detective's husband is believed dead in a plane crash a year prior to this story. Scott mentions this event 10-12 times, making sure the reader knows no bodies or personal effects found at the site. That information has nothing to do with the current events. There are many good books out there. This isn't one of them. Don't waste your time.
