* October 2017 Series Reread and ReviewAnother great reread. This one is a bit slower placed and not as engaging, but, a great read nonetheless. Reagan Madison has attracted the attention of a madman and it's up to Alac Buchanan to keep her safe. Alan and Reagan's attraction was a slow burn and the storyline lagged at times but not too much. I love the relationship between Regan and her two BFF's Cordie and Sophie. The three have been inseparable since Kindergarten and very close and loyal to on [...]

Ok, I love Julie Garwood, but this book was not among my favorites. The alpha male was a bit over the top. There were so many times I would have kicked him to the curb. Of course I wouldn't reach my Happily Ever After, but I can live with that.As for our Mary Sue, I mean Regan, she never quite developed. This utterly beautiful, rich, smart woman can't figure out why the handsome cop would choose her? Please!Anyway, regardless of the two of them it is a good murder mystery with a bit of a twist a [...]

The series continues with another compelling story with this fourth book. There is a perfect pitch between the romantic and suspense elements and it moves quickly. I also liked the added "girlfriends" component of the storyline, providing the main character, Regan Madison, with realistic dimensions. Alec Buchanan is nicely defined as her love interest along with others from the Chicago Police Department to flesh out his role. Regan's brothers could be better developed but overall, this is a good [...]

This series keeps getting better and better ^^- The couple in here didn't have any appearance in the previous book but they certainly had their presence in here. The couple also reminded me of the Regency Romance books, her all polite and elegant, him with his messy appearance and rakish attitude, which I liked it was a cute combination.- Also I noticed that the difference in here was that even though as usual we get to know the villains thoughts throughout the story and still get surprised at t [...]

Reviewed for THC ReviewsIt's been a really long time since I've read one of Julie Garwood's romantic suspense novels, since before I started writing reviews to be exact. Murder List was a pretty good read, and about on par with what I remembered of the other books in the Buchanan series, but not quite up to the caliber of some other romantic suspense authors I've read more recently. Having a killer on the loose, who seems to be obsessing on the heroine, worked reasonably well from a suspense/thr [...]

Let me begin by saying that I did not take note that this was a "#4" in a series and have not read numbers 1, 2 & 3. And I never will. I listened to this on audiobook while traveling which would explain why I actually finished it: I had no other options. I found myself wondering if perhaps the slow, unappealing reading by the voice actor was the source of my hatred of this book, but after further thought I came to the conclusion that the dialogue and plot description really were JUST THAT AW [...]

A quick read. A bit of everything in this one. Beautiful/handsome wealthy people, romance, murder - great for a holiday read. The murders were brutal, the murderer driven by the 'devil' and it did get quite intense so I pretty much read it in one go.

3,5/5No estuvo mal, no tanto como pensé que sería, eso sí. Aunque los protas tardan lo suyo en conocerse, y aunque me habla de una química que no pude llegar a ver entre ambos cuando empiezan a enamorarse, no se hizo largo.El tema del asesino parece casi un chiste, porque él no quiere matarla y le da su tiempito para que siga con vida.La autora me habla de una convivencia de tres semanas, en las que Alec y Regan se gustan, se atraen y se quieren. Después de eso, ellos viven como si fueran [...]

I enjoy Julie Garwood's contemporary romantic suspense. The Murder List was no exception, although it wasn't her best effort.The plot has something in common with Linda Howard's Mr. Perfect, although without the humor of Howard's book. In both books several female friends end up making lists, and the list puts people in danger. In The Murder Room, the danger centers on Regan Madison, a hotel heiress who made the Murder List as part of a self-help guru's "cleansing" exercise. The list is suppose [...]

Three wealthy, successful twenty-something women living in Chicago - Regan, Sophie, and Cordie - decide to take down a scheming 'motivational speaker' who fleeces rich, lonely women. To get a bead on him they sign up for his seminar. One of the seminar exercises is to write a list of people you want gone, a 'murder list', which is immediately destroyed. Regan is seriously annoyed with several people, so she writes down their names. She then leaves the seminar before destroying her list. In the s [...]

This is book 4 in the Buchanan series, about Alec Buchanan and Regan Hamilton. First off I thought I wasn't going to like Regan but as the book progressed my first assumption was completely wrong. Regan turned out to be a perfect heroine at least to me. I really liked Alec as well but what I found in this book was that it was mostly all about Regan. That fact didn't bother that much but I did think it was a little odd. I had stated in my review of Killjoy that I thought it was all about the Susp [...]

I prefer Murder List to Killjoy because this story has less annoying dialogues among minor roles, which always make me skip some pages, what's worse, it often occurs when the danger is coming.The interaction among Regan and her two good friends are funny, I'd like to read if there is more stories about the other two friends' stories.

What a difference it makes when you read a series in order. I initially read this book not realizing it was part of a series and was just meh about it. Now, having read it in the order it was written, I absolutely loved it. It was suspenseful, I knew the characters and have come to love them and enjoyed spending time with Regan and Alec. Being able to see the progression of the story made this a much better read for me. I knew how it was going to end, but still thought it was a really good book. [...]

Been on a Julie Garwood streak of late. Her new contemporaries are very good. But then her historicals always were as well.This is part of a larger series and part of the subset involving the three friends Cordie, Regan, and Sophie. This is Regan's story. An engaging romance with a very solid mystery-suspense plot. I will probably have to read this again some time. It's that enjoyable.

I like the mystery more than I like the romance. But I have to say that the banter between Regan and Alec was better than the others in the series. Maybe because they are a complete opposite with Regan's an heiress and Alec is more of a rough-on-the-edge kind of guy.

More romance than mystery. By the title and synopsis, I thought I'd be reading a crime novel with a little romance thrown into the mix. Even though "Murder List" wasn't what I was expecting, I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

This was a good read. The story revolves around a wealthy woman that is being hunted for unknown reasons. Due to her efforts to help someone else, she produces an imaginary hit list. Things start to get out of hand when people start dying. A policeman, due to another situation gets assigned to protect her and the story is off and running. Who is after her? What will they do next? Is it someone close to her, or a stranger? As the story unfolds it holds the reader interested in what will happen ne [...]

I liked that we have seen their relationship develop. Though it seemed as more of a character study and set up for future stories. But it was a nice read. If a little overcrowded.

After not caring for Killjoy, which is the book before this book, I didn't think I'd care for any of Garwood's contemporaries but unlike everyone else, I really enjoyed the Buchanan books. I love the Buchanan family and though her contemporaries can't hold a candle to her historicals, I still like reading these books from time to time. Somebody dropped this book off on the office "get rid of these books for me" bookshelf. I saw it and couldn't help myself.In this book, Alec Buchanan made me go a [...]

Detective Alec Buchanan is a cop based in Chicago and because his superior was displeased with him he gave him a bodyguard duty to one Regan Hamilton Madison, a hotel heiress. Regan in my opinion is too sweet and polite for her own good. She can be such a push over i didn't like that. Other people were very rude to her and she can't get herself to even defend herself and put them in their place. Seriously, I want her to have mean streak in her too when people take advantage of her sweet nature. [...]

This book is more about the mystery and the crime than the romance and I was a bit disappointed because of that, but I loved it anyway.The prologue made me laugh really hard. Regan was very funny as a child. The conversation she had with her brothers about the girl at school who was tormenting her and her friends was hilarious and though they were exasperated, it was obvious they cared very much for her.I love Regan's brothers because they were really good with her and loved her very much, but t [...]

I'm a bit undecided over what I thought of this book. From one angle, I really enjoyed it, but from another, I thought it was rather lame.Plot-wise, I liked the book quite a bit. Of Garwood's 6 semi-connected romantic suspense books, this is perhaps my 2nd favorite plot (Heartbreaker being 1st). I do have to qualify that thoughe plot idea was good and interesting, but it could have been better developed. There's a lot of down time in this book. There's some action in the beginning, and a short s [...]

Newly discovered, Julie Garwood is fast becoming my go to author for romantic suspense. Murder List pertains to such genre and delivers not only intrigue, romance but a great plot to support it. Sure, at face value the premise merely detail a handsome detective (soon to be FBI agent), Alec Buchanan, whose task is to protect beautiful heiress, Regan Madison Hamilton. Sounds familiar? Cliche, perhaps? That was my initially impression as well and aspects of the story were that but many more importa [...]

I found the pace of this book to be too slow for a suspense-thriller. The danger level felt low, despite the fact that a determined killer was after the heroine. The whole "murder list" setup took quite a few chapters. (Basically -- Reagan makes a "murder list" as a seminar exercise for some quack she and her friends are trying to expose as a fraud, and then the killer gets ahold of it.)Actually, here's the problem: The two main characters didn't do much acting. This was more a book of reactions [...]

Murder List by Julie Garwood is a entertaining romantic suspense novel. The basic plot like many other novels remains the same - a beautiful heiress Regan Madison Hamilton needs police protection as she is the center of attention of a maniac killer, and Detective Alec Buchanan steps in to play bodyguard for Regan.Although the plot is quite expected of a romantic suspense novel, the characters are beautifully created and each holds their own in the story. The main leads - Alec and Regan were some [...]
