It would make a wonderful movie. There are some handsome and rich men in love with a cop with a complicated past, the castle standing on the heaths and secrets from the past. This was my first book of this author and it really disappointed me. Actually I managed to read just 70 pages and even that much was enough for me.

Maybe I would have liked it better if I didn't jump into the series in book 7, but the relationships seemed superficial. After all, she's just a cat. For Lockwood, animal-therapy programs draw on the same issues of power and control that can give rise to animal cruelty, but elegantly reverse them to more enlightened ends.

I was so frustrated by the glaringly obvious conclusion that I rushed through the last quarter of the book, barely paying any attention to the words on the page. After 7 books, I still feel absolutely nothing for the main characters, Taylor in particular.
I think I'm officially done with this series. Oct 05, Mason rated it it was amazing. Not having read any of the prior books in this series, I can honestly say new readers will have no problem keeping up in this 7th installment of the Taylor Jackson series. While this story is built on the outcome of a prior book, there is enough background given. In fact, not knowing all the details of the prior case added extra mystery for me. A good portion of the book is told from the thoughts of the main character, Nashville TN homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson, who has lost her speech.
The reader feels the frustrations of being unable to speak while having much to say. Left unable to speak, Taylor feels guilt and pain from the ordeal. With her own demons closing in, Taylor accepts the offer of Memphis Highsmythe to visit his ancestral home in the Scottish Highlands. As the story unfolds from there readers will find themselves wondering if Taylor is losing her mind or if someone is out to get her by driving her mad. While you may figure out who is behind the troubles, there are still some surprises in store at the end.
Joyce Bean does a beautiful job of narrating this suspenseful tale. A perfect book for anytime but especially on a cold, rainy night as the wind howls outside. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. Dec 02, Dotti Elrick rated it really liked it. Taylor Jackson is a homicide detective with the Nashville police department.
She has recovered physically, but she's having a harder time psychologically. She still can't speak. Her fiance, Baldwin is pulling away, he is still having a hard time with the lies he's told Taylor. And Taylor can't quite bring herself to forgive him. Her best friend, Sam, is still blaming her for being kidnapped, and the loss of her Taylor Jackson is a homicide detective with the Nashville police department. Her best friend, Sam, is still blaming her for being kidnapped, and the loss of her unborn baby. And with no voice, she hasn't been cleared to return to work.
So, she has nothing but time on her hands, time to think. Being in her head is the last place Taylor wants to spend time. When an offer comes in from a friend, "Memphis" Highsmyth, to spend some time at his family's castle in Scotland, Taylor jumps at it. Time to get away from everyone and concentrate on healing.
Memphis has a dear friend who is a psychologist and helped him through the death of his wife and son. She has agreed to help Taylor. Things seem perfect until Taylor starts having nightmares and seeing things that are not there. She starts doubting herself and becoming more and more paranoid.
She no longer knows what's real and what's not. A storm has set in and she's cut off from everyone. If you have not read the earlier books in this series I would not start with this one. There is too much backstory missing.
It is a well written story, you really feel the hopelessness and despair Taylor is experiencing. But I think the story as a whole would make more sense from the beginning.
It is a great series! Aug 04, Karen rated it liked it Shelves: police-procedural , My take away from this? Memphis is a total and utter douchebag. Festering douche nozzle. That the next book published is a prequel, and doesn't pick up after that little scene is frustrating, because I want to hear Sam's response when Taylor tells her all this. Sam would verbally peel the boy's balls like grapes.

Of course when next we meet everyone, it's 2 years later and the story centers on Sam, so I will just have to be content that Taylor broke Memphis's nose and likely cheekbone. And hope T and B get couples therapy, because jeezus they need it. View 1 comment. Well I finished the Taylor Jackson series. This final book has a very different feel than the previous. After some rather traumatic events in the prior book, Taylor is seeking refuge in Europe in Memphis' castle estate.
There is a bit of a love triangle if you will, not so much on Taylor's part, definitely on Memphis' part. There is no big mystery to be solved, just some smaller independent ones. This book did nothing for me. I think the ending was abrupt. The whole storyline of Taylor getting help from Maddee is bizarre.
The writing falls flat. I made up my mind to get through the whole series and I did it, but I have to say this was the hardest book to get through.
I had to force myself to take time each day to get through it - I have never been like that with a book before! Well, maybe when I was little and had to read books for school assignments, but otherwise I usually can't put my books down. I would say read at your own discretion. Oct 23, Elisa rated it liked it. I really wanted to love the whole book, because I have loved the series so much but I just didn't. What I really enjoyed was the ending, the beginning was too confusing and slow paced, little bits from the previous book were not tied off for me and it really felt off but I kept reading even though I was struggling.
The middle got a little better I was starting to understand the mystery more but it was also easy to pick the baddie for me which kind of also let the whole story down as it felt too I really wanted to love the whole book, because I have loved the series so much but I just didn't.
