    It's your standard romance novel with a little bit of crime intertwined. Enjoyable, quick read if you are not asking for much. It's your standard romance novel with a little bit of crime intertwined. Enjoyable, quick read if you are not asking for much.

    2.5 really I'm still learning what I like in romance. While I love B. J. Daniels, I find I dislike the "amnesia" trope. Decent, but not for me. 2.5 really I'm still learning what I like in romance. While I love B. J. Daniels, I find I dislike the "amnesia" trope. Decent, but not for me.

    Entertaining, but Overstuffed Romantic Mystery March 6, 2000 In her latest novel, B.J. Daniels takes an "everything but the kitchen sink" approach to storytelling, throwing in far more elements than can be comfortably handled in such a short book. Terrible blind dates, long-kept secrets, matchmaking aunts, murder, grave-digging, amnesia--even a secret baby. Then there's a love story. The setup is so bizarre and unwieldy it's almost impossible to describe what the story's about (which is one of the Entertaining, but Overstuffed Romantic Mystery March 6, 2000 In her latest novel, B.J. Daniels takes an "everything but the kitchen sink" approach to storytelling, throwing in far more elements than can be comfortably handled in such a short book. Terrible blind dates, long-kept secrets, matchmaking aunts, murder, grave-digging, amnesia--even a secret baby. Then there's a love story. The setup is so bizarre and unwieldy it's almost impossible to describe what the story's about (which is one of the reasons the back cover copy is so misleading). The gist of it is: When an old friend is found murdered, Karen Sutton realizes she may be able to identify the murderer. The determined Karen throws herself into the investigation and goes chasing after a man she thinks is the killer--only to run into Detective Jack Adams. It may indeed be love at first sight, but she's going to need more than his love. When she becomes bait to catch the killer, she's going to need his protection. While I would love for books to be this ambitious, in this case the story's strong points are often buried by its excesses. The first few chapters, while often funny, are also really goofy, with a series of far too coincidental encounters taking place one right after another. The back cover dutifully informs the reader that the heroine is struck with amnesia, but that aspect takes so long to appear--and then does so out of nowhere--that it seems like a bizarre afterthought in a story that didn't need one more twist. Even if the "man pretends to be married to woman who can't remember otherwise" plot hadn't been used in an Intrigue just last month (#552, "A Night Without End"), I doubt it would have worked here. It adds nothing except to give the heroine a sudden personality transplant. The spunky, determined Karen of the first half bears little resemblance to the starry-eyed, lovestruck version that appears after she loses her memory. Compared to "A Night Without End" and even this month's "Forgotten Lullaby," the heroine's reaction to find herself married to someone she doesn't remember--simple acceptance--doesn't ring true. Daniels' tale does have more than its share of strengths. Boring is not a word anyone would associate with it, as Daniels' plotting will keep readers on their toes from start to finish. Jack is a solid hero bound to win a few hearts, strong, sexy and charming. Though everything wraps up a bit too neatly to be believed (Unless Missoula has a population of ten, the way all the characters happen to be connected to one another is ridiculous), the mystery element is the book's strongest, a puzzle many will be eager to solve. Unfortunately, the wildly shifting tone is its weakest. The climax is so taut and suspenseful, the final image of the villain so wonderfully haunting, that it seems completely out of place with the wackiness that started the story. While nowhere near as good as the moving stories full of in-depth writing Daniels used to pen ("Hotshot P.I." "Undercover Christmas" "Odd Man Out") but seems to have moved away from, readers seeking a fast-paced, lighter tale with a dash of mystery shouldn't go wrong here. I was certainly entertained by "Love at First Sight." I also didn't believe a word of it.

    She’s seen something she shouldn’t and he’s determined to keep her safe. I’ve never read a BJ Daniels book, so I’m glad I remedied this. The author’s writing style is concise and kept me interested throughout. I read this in an afternoon and I enjoyed myself. The story moved at a good clip, and it’s got just enough mystery to be interesting, and even better, I didn’t figure out the mystery until the end. I have to admit I wasn’t a fan of Karen’s. She seemed almost too perfect to be true throughout She’s seen something she shouldn’t and he’s determined to keep her safe. I’ve never read a BJ Daniels book, so I’m glad I remedied this.

She seemed almost too perfect to be true throughout the book. She likes to eat but she’s athletic. She’s got a perfect figure. Then there were times when I wondered why she did some of the things she did. It was as if she didn’t trust Jack. Jack has his own issues. I wasn’t sure a cop would willingly go to a graveyard and dig up a grave…that seemed a little off to me. Those things aside, this book did keep me entertained and I enjoyed the read. I’m on the hunt for more by this author. Why not give this one a try?

    With a chance meeting with a former school colleague, everything in Karen Suttons predictable "play by the rules" life gets turned upside down. While the first third of this book is a little predictable if you hang in there this storyline quickly becomes a gripping page turner.

The attraction is electric and Jack will do anything to make sure Karen is safe, even if it costs him his job and even if he has to lie to her.
