Play Dead by Meryl Sawyer is a book I had read before but it had been a while It was very well written and even with having read it there was enough twists and turns that I was still guessing as I neared the end of the book I have to say I really enough reading mystery novels But I struggle with mystery novels due to the sheer number of characters that need to be introduced rather quickly if the book is to flow I find myself having to look back a lot to try to remember who is who However, that is a me issue and not a writing issue.

This has all the making for quite an intensifying and satisfying thriller Unfortunately I did not enjoy the story as much as I wanted to for a number of reasons The plot itself was great, lots of twists, and actions to drive it However, I did not care for the execution or the characters Hayley Fordham is the cliche wealthy heiress who is misunderstood She is both beauty and brains and with the territory comes enemies, and much hostility and jealousy from her step siblings Likewise, Ryan Hollister is an FBI i Enjoyed this book, especially the thriller and mystery aspect As I was coming off another thriller that had proved uninspiring and disappointing, I was really on the lookout for the clues and red herrings in this one thankfully, Ms Sawyer of whom this was my first read did not disappoint.
The action and the suspense kept up for much of the book Now I know this is a romantic suspense the romance shouldn t be the primary aspect of the story, but I kept wishing for where Hayley and Ryan were concerned Don t get me wrong their romance was okay, but that s just it it was okay Nothing spectacular or really memorable, which is a shame as there was potential for lots tension and conflict between these two It almost seems as if the author wrote around the characters like the surfing and surf shop parts rather than about the characters, if that makes sense.

When Hayley turns up alive, Ryan finds himself protecting her and trying to solve her attempted murder.
This is the first book by Meryl Sawyer that I have read I really enjoyed it, too It was a good suspense without an obvious answer to the who done it it kept me guessing right up until the end The relationship between Hayley and Ryan was blended well into the story and didn t take over too much of the story.
My only real nit is the ending It was a little convoluted how things really worked out and I was slightly confused by what really happened I would ha This is another book which has been languishing on my TBR pile for about two years now and turned out to be a very satisfying B read for me I have read nearly all of Maryl Sawyer s backlist, quite enjoying her romantic suspense titles, a genre, I don t favour all that much, usually The book s ratings on goodreads is quite low and even though I wouldn t declare it groundbreaking I find Play Dead to be an entertaining, satisfying read with a hero and heroine I enjoyed very much and who had some serious sizzle between them I am by no means a specialist in the gadget department, but what I always enjoy in Sawyer s books, is, that she conveys to me a good insight on various industrial sectors such as the publishing industry or, in this case, the mixed martial arts and surfing trade Checking online I just saw that
