Secret Admirer Reviews
no crime thriller of cynthia eden's will ever be as good as deadly fear. lmao
this was alright- but super predictable. i wish she writes something different the next time!
I really enjoyed this. I loved the heroine, I loved that she didn’t play games and said what was on her mind. It was refreshing to read that in a heroine. The hero was pretty great too <3. Cynthia Eden never disappoints!
Another book by Ms Eden that I was not able to put down till I finished it!! This storyline was suspenseful, intense at times, action packed and the romance, well that was off the charts! As soon as you start reading, this book takes off.... Alice May is getting married or is she? When the groom dies in a crash on his way to the wedding and a dead body is found, Alice May realizes her soon to be husband is the Secret Admirer that has killed 5 woman. Fast forward a year later and a new dead body. ...more
War ganz okay, aber nicht mein Lieblingsbuch von Cynthia Eden.
Was okay, but not my favorite from her.
Wow what a nerve racking book. You never knew who was the killer. And the romance between these two was smoking hot. Loved all the twists and turns.
Definitely a thrill!
This is a unique book in the fact of the heroine was romantically involved with this supposed serial killer. Now she’s trying to move on but the FBI doesn’t believe she’s innocent. I will say that I did enjoy the book, the suspense was great and Alice as a character was so sweet and lovable but a bit of a push over. Zander was well, a character I didn’t really like bit just because of what he does to Alice. Is this insta forgiveness and love? Yes but the book is a stand alone ...more
What a thrill ride!
This was a nice return to a Mystery, and Suspense genre. Alice May, the bride left at the altar finds out that Hugh, her fiancee is a serial killer called "The Secret Admirer", and that the women killed look just like her. Alice May, moved to a small town hoping to start her life again, where no one knows her. Unfortunately the killings begin again, and the FBI believe Alice May is a partner in crime of the original serial killer. Enters the local handy man, Zander whose reall ...more
Yikes. Two Cynthia Eden books I didn’t like IN A ROW?!? What is wrong with me?
I couldn’t stand the heroine. I found her to be this pathetic whimpering flower. Constantly asking why the hero “wants be with her and her emotional baggage.” I truly hate that line. Has anyone ever actually said that out loud to another person before? If you have, you really need to re evaluate your life. The martyr heroine just doesn’t do it for me. When I read a false pretenses romance I expect a great grovel/dialo ...more
