Hemlock Bay (FBI Thriller, #6) by Catherine Coulter
The overall story line was promising but the interaction between the characters was very weird. I wondered if they were just page fillers.
I could not wait to finish it and only did so because I wanted to know how it ended. View all 5 comments. This book was really dreadful. I thought it was so bad, in fact, that I almost gave it two stars simply because after a while I sort of enjoyed mocking it.
There was precisely one element of this book I enjoyed. For some reason I thought it was sweet and appealing whenever Lily would describe her cartoon character No Wrinkles Remus. I liked her in those moments. The rest of this book drove me crazy. The dialogue was the worst part. And, yes, I think it is particularly difficult to wr This book was really dreadful.
And, yes, I think it is particularly difficult to write dialogue that sounds convincing and not stilting and ridiculous, but there’s a reason why many authors use dialogue sparingly. Half of what was explained through conversation in this book could have been described in another way and should have been.
Absolutely none of the conversations ran true. The characters were all one-dimensional. There were two plots in this book and I kept waiting for them to come together but they never did. The supernatural plot was completely absurd and never explained sufficiently. The worst part was that this so-called mystery was never a mystery at all! The characters all figured out what was going on with both plots about halfway through the book and the worst part is that half the time the reader wasn’t told how the mysteries were solved, just that they detectives “had a lead” or “learned from the computer” or whatever and then what they figured out ended up actually being true!
Hemlock Bay | Catherine Coulter Suspense Thriller author FBI Contemporary
There were no interesting twists and very little suspense. I hate to be so harsh on a book because the author put time and effort into it.
In this case, though, I really can’t recommend this hemlockk anyone, unless you feel like mocking some really terrible dialogue. Nov 19, J. Bailey rated it it was ok.
It took me two weeks to read this book, and unfortunately I did not enjoy it. I did like my first foray into Catherine Coulter’s work The Covebut this one just didn’t grab me.
The characters felt flat and most of them seemed to have the same voice and personality. There were also some problems that should have been caught by an editor but weren’t: Why didn’t she say “yo It took me two weeks to read this book, and unfortunately I did not enjoy it.
Why didn’t she say “your mother”? At another point a liquid was described as looking like iced coffee but without the ice, and a jet was said to be flying 30, miles up. There were a lot of things going on in the story and the plot just didn’t seem cohesive to me.
I know that a lot of people really like these books so I suppose that this just isn’t my cup of tea. On top of this, they receive a phone call informing them that Dillon’s sister, Lily, is in the hospital.
Lily has battled depression since the death of her daughter, but insists that this was not an attempted suicide as her in-laws are claiming. Dillon calls in his art expert friend, Simon Russo, who discovers that half the paintings have been stolen and replaced with forgeries. As Dillon realizes that both he and his sister are in grave danger, a killer from the previous case he was working on returns to settle the score.
I was utterly unimpressed with this installment. Will I read others in this series? Feb 16, Jay Jessmer rated it it was ok. Very disappointed with this effort from Ms. While I have mostly enjoyed the “FBI Thriller” series, I have accepted that often times the writing is silly, the characters one dimensional and the situations somewhat absurd. That’s ok, I read it for entertainment and more often than not, she delivers.
This one I could really only get through because I already have a vested interest in the series. The majority of the writing itself w Very disappointed with this effort from Ms. The majority of the writing itself was just horrible, Savich and Sherlock seemed like carton characters and the whole “Tuttle” storyline was just too much.
I couldn’t connect to either Lily or Simon. They were just terribly written characters who held no enjoyment for me. The most insulting part of the story was when the local police let the two of them That was truly the moment I almost said “enough” and packed it in, but out of loyalty to the series I continued on.
I will go on to “The 11th Hour”, hoping for a quick turnaround to form. Every author has the occasional hiccup Nov 07, Patrick rated it really liked it. Did not expect that interlude but whatever, a suspenseful, gritty, sexy read which frankly, I just really got into this one Gotta love Savich’s sister Lily, tough as nails yet fragile still, would love to know her better and in person as well. A peril of twisted, seriously psychotic individuals, just downright evil shitheads If you are into Painting and the Arts, this one is for you!
Recommend the audio as well Jan 14, Victoria rated it liked it. I expected this would be a romance novel but it was more a whodunit. Not badif you can believe a woman who had a splenectomy along with other injuries got out of the hospital after a few days and within a couple of weeks managed to take down a couple of really bad dudes with her martial arts skills, fall in love after swearing off men, and fly to Sweden to nab the head bad guy.
But whenever she got in a car everyone was solicitous about putting a pillow between her stomach and the seatbelt. Jun 15, Tanya rated it it was ok. Riptide and this book are strange. The main character is subjected to many awful, unrelated events.
This author really abuses her women! I couldn’t get through Riptide, but did skim Hemlock Bay. The Main character seems catherinee have been flayed in another novel, and in this one she must face two unrelated bad guys in quick succession.
I find it difficult to buy in to her characters as well as the plot. It did make for catherie fast beach skim. Oct 01, Darlene rated it really liked it Shelves: Twists and turns, but an overload of unexplained paranormal happenings that were supposed to be frightening but just left me shaking my head at the absurdity of cathsrine.
Liked the book, but how many time could smart people make themselves so vulnerable hemloco be targets for murderers? I will definitely continue reading Coulter FBI series, but prefer them more believable. Feb 04, Joene rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a great story, with interesting characters and a twist you don’t expect. Sherlock and Dillon involved as well!
