Gwyn Weaver is as resilient as anyone could be. Having survived an attempted murder, she has rebuilt her life and reclaimed her dignity and strength. She's always known about her feelings for defense attorney Thomas Thorne, but as her friend and a colleague there could be no chance of anything more... or could there? Thorne has known violence and pain all his life. He's overcome the hardships thanks to his own steel, and the love of his loyal friends. Now he's thinking it might finally be time to let his guard down, and allow himself to let in the woman he's always admired from afar. Then Thorne's whole world is torn apart - he is found unconscious in his own bed, the lifeless body of a stranger lying next to him, her blood on his hands. Knowing Thorne could never have committed such a terrible crime, Gwyn and his friends rally round to clear his name. But this is just the beginning - the beginning of a brutal campaign to destroy Thorne, and everything he holds dear...… (plus d'informations)

Death is Not Enough continues the stories of Rose's Baltimore characters but you don't have to have read the previous books. You can read these as stand alones!

You aren't wondering who the bad guy is or what his plan is. The suspense comes from the 'how' aspect and its GOOD. Thorne was nearly framed for a murder as a teenager. He was found not guilty, but the real killer was never caught. Now, many years later he is being framed again. He is a successful defense lawyer, so there is no shortage of possible suspects and there is a connection to the original murder as well. No one weaves an intricate plot like Rose. She really is masterful at romantic suspense. Because the story is told in 3rd person, the reader gets to see multiple views-the good guys and the bad guys! I love this style-its so engaging!

Interlaced with the murder mystery is a friends to lovers romance between Thorne and Gwyn. Gwyn is one of Thorne's partners in a nightclub and she also works as a paralegal in his firm. They have been friends for almost a decade, and Thorne has had feeling for her for most of that time! Gwyn barely survived a serial killer and is only now starting to get back to her life. She starts dating and Thorne realizes that he has to tell her how he feels. So, amidst the murder plots, scheming mob guys, and serious peril, Thorne and Gwyn realize they don't want to face their lives alone any more. Its impossible NOT to like them-both are good, kind people who care deeply for those around them. Its easy to want them to get their HEA (and not get murdered or framed for murder)!

Death is Not Enough will keep you on your toes throughout and its a wild ride! If you enjoy romantic suspense that keeps you guessing, this is a great pick! There is enough romance to remind you its a romance novel, but it blends so seamlessly with the plot and danger!

 

  • POV: 3rd

  • Tears: no

  • Trope: friends to lovers

  • Triggers: Obviously, murder, but many of the characters dealt with abuse-physical and sexual-in their past. It is not explicitly detailed but might be a trigger for some readers

  • Series/Standalone: stand alone within an interconnected series

  • Cliffhanger: no

  • HEA: yes





The Tracers series by Laura Griffin, Killer Instincts series by Cynthia Eden, Cold Justice series by Toni Anderson...then you will probably like Death is Not Enough!

I have read all of Karen Rose’s books and they always cause me sleepless nights and this one was no different. I just couldn’t make myself put the book down and stop reading!!

I was especially looking forward to this one as Thorne has always been one of my favourite characters throughout this series – he is my ideal man! Shame he’s not real 🙂

This book is slightly different from the others as with this one we know who the bad guy is from the start almost, but there are still revelations to be had throughout the book and the reasons behind the “Why?” all fall into place and some of the reasons were unexpected!!

Told between Thorne, Gwyn and their tormentor Tavilla’s view really added depth to the characters and the storyline and they are all brilliant characters.

Tavilla is such a great bad guy – violent, psychopathic, and willing to go to any lengths to achieve his goal – destroy Thorne by going after everyone he loves and framing him for murder! Clever!!

Thorne’s friends and family all come together to clear his name putting themselves in danger to save him from himself as much as from Tavilla as well as protecting their own from becoming victims. This book brings back characters from previous books and its great to see how Clay and Taylor are getting along now they have been reunited as well as Daphne, Ford, J.D, Lucy and Stevie since we last saw them.

And of course, there is the romance element! The relationship between Thorne and Gywn gets taken to the next level, from friends and business partners to romance and some pretty steamy sex!! But both have their own demons and secrets that have an impact on both of them. It was about time these two got some luck in the love department!!

I hope there will be a continuation in this series but Karen Rose has a new book out on February 21, 2019 ( Yes I know – ages to wait!! ) Say You’re Sorry (The Sacramento Series Book 1) so it looks like we will be meeting new people with a new series.

If you are a fan of Karen Rose you are in for a real treat with this one and although I wouldn’t recommend reading this without reading the other books prior to this one but saying that, it will work as a stand alone novel. But if this is your first Karen Rose book, after reading it you will be desperate to read the rest!!

Absolutely compelling reading that you won’t want to put down!!

Death is Not Enough was published on 17 May 2018 in hardcover and digital format. The paperback edition is due to be published on 2 October 2018 in the UK

Thank you Netgalley and Headline for my advance copy of Death Is Not Enough. ( )
