    Still Waters by Tami Hoga is a great romantic thriller which hits right from the first pageWe have an Amish communitya normal close knit town 2 killers one so unlikely 😬 murders obviously a police sheriff and a new outsider newspaper editor who slowly falls in love so we get a HEA There are many many up and downs twists and turns which all links together to make the grand finalIt's been a while since I've read this author and I can't wait to read and re read her other booksI'm definitely recommending this 📖

    I really liked the mystery in this one and I like Ms Hoag's writing but I wasn't enad with the leading MCs What kept me reading was the plot of who killed the wealthy sleazeball in the town of Still Creek The suspense is well paced and with some additional deaths and attacks and missing tourist the mystery keeps you guessingElizabeth has just gone through a horror of a divorce with her ex husband making her look like a slut who will sleep with anything With looks and a reputation every guy she meets is making passes with the assumption that she will sleep with them In reality she's a struggling single mom just trying to create a life for herself and her troubled son I thought Ms Hoag did a really good job with how the son was woven into the plot Elizabeth is involved from two standpoints first she discovered the dead body and second she owns the local paper Elizabeth herself should have been a likable character but with her calling everyone she meets Sugar as part of her southern characterization I got where I didn't want her in a scene One two many Sugars for meDane is the Sheriff and is responsible for solving the crimes He doesn't do a very good job as he wants to blame a transient and not do his due diligence He doesn't want to look at any of the citizens in his town Also he is a complete jerk to Elizabeth believing all the lies and treating her like a slut But he feels he's justified as his ex wife did a number on him Aside from looks he didn't seem to have any redeeming ualities I really disliked himThe romance didn't work for me He was such a jerkass that I just can't see falling for him He treats her poorly so she has the hots for him It came off as just hot sex and not a relationship Definitely not romanticThe suspense was 5 stars but Dane was a 1 star and Elizabeth was a 2 star so I averaged it out to a 3 star rating As I really did like Ms Hoag's writing and the plot I will definitely give her books another go

    Well this wasn't my favorite Tami Hoag Probably because I hated the male lead Dane in this one Going through a bad divorce years earlier and deciding the female lead Elizabeth must be a gold digger and only want one thing from men was gross The murder mystery seemed to be getting overlooked a lot I thought in order for them to spar and then of course they end up in bed Also the character development of both Dane and Elizabeth was poor And Hoag for some bizarre reason kept having Elizabeth run around talking like a cliche since she was from Texas When we get the reveal of who murdered the town's bully and overall scumbag I went really? Not a very good showing of Hoag's writing skills I thoughtStill Waters follows divorcee Elizabeth who has moved from Texas to Minnesota to start over again Her teenage son and her are looking for a fresh start after the tabloid press hounded Elizabeth out of town Elizabeth now runs the local paper and is hoping that she can eventually get her house together and grow closer to her son After dealing with a car mishap Elizabeth goes for help at a nearby construction site Once there she finds Jarrold Jarvis who had his throat slashed and was left in his car The town sheriff Dane is a local boy who made it to the NFL but then had to return home again He finds himself angry and distrustful of women and reporters so as far as he is concerned Elizabeth isn't someone that can be trusted and he decides that she must know than she is telling When attacks ramp up and the guilty party that everyone thinks did it turns up dead the town of Still Creek is left wondering if the person who murdered Jarrold is one of themI can't say much besides Elizabeth being a reporter made zero sense with her background She got a divorce settlement but deciding to move to Minnesota to buy a paper made zero sense to me It didn't help that we didn't really see her off there reporting or anything Dane was terrible He pretty much decides after a while that he and Elizabeth are going to have sex with each other and this is after he's pretty awful to her for the first half of the bookBoth leads have teens who have sense than their parentsThe other characters in this one are not given much to do The book just flips flops between people and you keep forgetting that there's a murder to solve There's even an Amish carpenter in this one and I have to say that there's no way any Amish person would work for the English so that whole thing kept taking me out of the bookThe writing was okay but the flow was pretty bad I think after a while the book was just spinning it's wheels The ending was a letdown We find out who did it but it didn't make much sense to me and I have to say that the book left some plot holes open that I don't even want to know they would get addressed

    Fabulous book if you love the court roomCSI type books like me I also like that they add in just a little twist of romance to it Not enough to make you wanna put it down and puke but just enough to keep you interested in that part of the story

    A fairly enjoyable romantic suspense although I didn't particularly enjoy either of the main characters I felt the book was a little slow in places but this is an author I will be reading of


  6. Ravi Ravi says:

    I bought this book at a sale since I wanted to read a new author the book was cheap and the blurb was not too bad and then I read the bookIt is the very first book that I can remember where I skipped lines in paragraphs and whole paragraphs themselves without missing a single significant eventI just wanted the misery of reading this to come to endIt reads like a love story with 2 of the main characters 'sparring' with each other like they are at war but in their hearts they are like soul mates The entire book is all about thatThe book is approximately 450 pages long but if the writing was to the point without overly exaggerating every single line on people's faces it would have been done in 30 pagesThe irritating part is the level of detail that the author goes into without any real value addFor example the son of the heroine goes for an interview and rides his 12 speed bike and reaches the spot all sweaty So he goes into the Texaco washroom washes his face tries to use the tissue paper to wipe himself looks at the mirror untucks his shirt then wipes himself with the tissue as then retucks his shirt looks at himself again in the mirror curses his life cause he is 16 and going through some tumoil walks out of the washroom and walks down to the place of the interviewPhew what exact value does this line add to the reader other than getting really irritatedThe main characters need a real shake down in parenting and leading their lives cause even a fairy tale has a better story lineIf there was a negative 'star' this would have deserved a place thereTami Hoag I am sure you are a very nice person but I am really irritated cause you took time off from me reading a much better piece of workThis is going into my do not ever buy again author listConclusion If you are on a desert island and don't have any recreation you can read it and let it swim out to sea If not don't ever read it

    I chose this book from my stacks to take to the beach on vacation It's than water logged and still in Florida I really enjoy Hoag's books but this one while enjoyable annoyed me a bit Elizabeth and her teenage son Trace flee Atlanta and end up in small town Still Creek Naturally Elizabeth is gorgeous and dislikes men The sheriff in town Dane is gorgeous and dislikes women And they end up in bed together NaturallyElizabeth happens on a dead body the first murder in this town in decades The sheriff is surly and lusty towards her if he grabbed her by the arm and steered her one timeseriously and she's determined to find the killer despite never having done anything like that before Also enter the Amish with their dislike of the EnglishI know uite a few Southern people and have never heard the word sugar in conversation as Elizabeth Enjoyable but somewhat annoying

    Tami Hoag is uickly becoming a favorite author I like a shivery suspenseful murder mystery without being bogged down with details and gore I'll save Kay Scarpetta for the best medical examiner ever thoughI don't think Still Waters is part of any series like her Elena Estes series or the Bayou Breaux series both are worth a readElizabeth Stuart is a twice divorced Texan who has gone from poor to rich back to poor and has packed up her life after her rich second ex husband shredded her name and reputation to Atlanta society and her teenage son and moved to Minnesota Still Creek Minnesota The only tie she has there is a college roommate who was like a sister to her since Elizabeth has no family Elizabeth buys the town's newspaper thus becoming an outsider and a reporter neither of which earn her much trust in the town The last big mistake she made was stumbling upon the body of Jarrold Jarvis his throat slashed and his body slumped over in his carSomewhere in the mess she reports the truth her son is a suspect an Amishman gets a little forbidden crush on her as he repairs her house and the local sheriff butts heads with her It doesn't help that the sheriff's teenage daughter and her teenage son decide they like each otherAs far as characters go I like all of the ones thrown in There aren't too many to try to sort out but enough to pick your suspects from I was right by the way I just don't think it was believable if that makes sense Pace timing setting Hoag's got it I wouldn't mind a little forensics since we ARE dealing with a modern day murder mystery Intriguing enough to pick up another book by this author Don't expect too much and you'll be fine


  9. Kyrie Kyrie says:

    I didn't finish it I gave it my 10% try I read 10% of the story While the mystery had promise I didn't think I wanted to wade through another 400 pages of people being in bed with people they can't stand just because they have an itch to scratch I got the point that the heroine is from a big city and had also lived in rough and tumble Texas which is nothing like Amish Minnesota where no one locks their doors and nothing ever happenstherefore she will have insights that the locals will not Got the whole good ol' boy sheriff thing which is weird if they have no crime I read the last chapter felt vindicated that I'd already made a good guess as to who the murderer was and decided I'd rather read a book I enjoyThis one was part of our library's blind date offerings a book in a brown paper wrapper so you don't know what you're getting It's a cute idea I might try it again but this one was too much like a blind date ugh


  10. Anita Anita says:

    Great mystery so so romance I really love Tami Hoag's early romances and I am puzzled how an author who does romance so well and mystery so well can't seem to blend to two in this bookElizabeth has been kicked to the curb by her SOB rich ex husband She and her son land in Still Creek MI and she buys the local paper She also has to fend off everything with a dick due to the SOB ex and his lies during their media circus divorce She finds the dead body of the town's wealthy sleaze and everyone assumes she slept with him and most believe she killed him including the county Sheriff Dane He believes everything the media wrote about her until he gets to know her and then he changes his mind But his ex did a number on him and he wants nothing but sex from any woman even Elizabeth
