Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling authors Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush join forces to craft this spine-tingling thriller in which one woman's birthright holds the key to a rash of brutal murders.

Elizabeth Gaines Ellis is an ordinary suburban wife and mother. That's what she tells herself as she flits between her realtor job, yoga class, and caring for her daughter, Chloe. But for months now, Elizabeth has worried that she's far from normal... that she's somehow the cause of a series of brutal, horrible deaths.

Her mean-spirited boss. A bullying traffic cop. Her cheating husband. Elizabeth had reason to be angry with them all. She didn't mean for them to die. No one will take her fears seriously - except the private investigator prying into her past...

The more scared and angry Elizabeth becomes, the higher the death toll grows. But those who wrong her aren't the only ones in danger. Because others have secrets too, and a relentless urge to kill without mercy or remorse.

THE WORST BOOK I EVER READ

Two authors made this book a complete disaster. I wouldn’t even call it a book since the story line was missing throughoutl. Ridiculous unbelievable story lines running into each other ad nauseam. Too many characters adding nothing but confusion & people getting murdered to for no real reasons. Main character can’t stop self-.It is going back for sure.destructing over & over (tiring & boring ) book too long.. Narration was over the top loud & brash with a sprinkle of pure nasty. I can’t even figure out how this book ever got published. Even the little girl turned out to be a loud mouthy little brat. The villain? Oh don’t even ask! In my opinion this book could never be rewriten even with a gallon of strong glue. I kid you not. And if I could I would not have even given them a one star rating. It will be going back for sure.

Not one charactor is likable!

What disappointed you about Wicked Ways?

It was all disappointing. I have always liked Lisa Jackson's books but this was a real stinker.

What was most disappointing about Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush ’s story?

The lead character, Elizabeth, kept repeating it was her fault - over and over and over. I got it way before the fifth time so stop already! The child was a brat that needed to be disciplined, probably when she started crawling. The cousin, half-sister or whatever, was a demanding brat making me hope she never found her lost relative. Rex liked to be pushed around by pushy women who were brats.

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Her performance was just fine particularly handling all the whining she was given.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wicked Ways?

The book would have been shortened by eliminating 98% of the whining. All the characters needed to be reworked so at least one was likeable. Get to the psychic childhood experiences of Elizabeth earlier -- that might have made some of the whining somewhat understandable.

Any additional comments?

Nancy Bush could never have sold this book without Lisa Jackson's name on it. Lisa Jackson should rethink co-authors.

Waste of time

Would you try another book from Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush and/or Susan Ericksen?

No. The book was cheesy and had giant plot holes.

What could Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Picked a story line and stuck with it. This was all over the place and nothing tied together.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performer did the best she could with what she had. She was a little over dramatic, but so was the story.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

This book read like a 12 year old read a bunch of mystery novels and then decided to smash them all together and make their own.

Annoying.

Boring, repetitive tripe. Didn't hear the first books in this series. Thank goodness. Would rather have a root canal than listen to more of this.I

My Thoughts

Another great continuation full of mind blowing twist and turns. I throughly enjoyed the interactions between Ravinia and Rex. And am very intrigued by the ending. Am excited to jump right into the next book of the Colony Series.
