    Whenever I think about disasters, whether natural or man made, I tend to recall the stories of the real people affected by these events Their stories stick with us, reminding us that first and foremost of our humanity They are the happenings that occur in the margins of great calamity that hold my attention For example, the most memorable stories associated with the assassination of President John F Kennedy are the tears of Judge Sarah Hughes as she swore Lyndon B Johnson, and the bereave Whenever I think about disasters, whether natural or man made, I tend to recall the stories of the real people affected by these events Their stories stick with us, reminding us that first and foremost of our humanity They are the happenings that occur in the margins of great calamity that hold my attention For example, the most memorable stories associated with the assassination of President John F Kennedy are the tears of Judge Sarah Hughes as she swore Lyndon B Johnson, and the bereaved Secret Service Agents who were forced to saw open the fuselage of Air Force One in order to fit the casket of the slain president Thankfully, most of us are not directly connected to the great tragedies of history, yet we remember where we were and what was happening when these events occur I remember one day in the late summer of 1997, my wife and I were watching the John Candy movie Cool Runnings when the phone rang It was my brother calling What are you doing right now He asked We re watching a movie I replied Turn it off, and switch onto the TV something s just happened he said in a cryptic tone of voice What channel should I turn to I remember asking It s on every channel he replied flatly I turned on the TV and quickly learned that there was a car crash in the Pont de l Alma Tunnel in Paris France and that the most famous woman in the world was taken from us in that terrible accident I remember feeling an irrational thought in that moment, wondering how this could happen at a time when we were so unready If you haven t guessed already, I admired the late princess It s strange, but every year, in late August I feel that same sense of melancholy and I always remember that John Candy movie and my brother s phone call I never had the honor of meeting Diana, Princess of Wales, yet the day she died feels incredibly personal and close to me till this very day My memories of that day are part of my story, and I must say I ve been affected in many subtle ways since Tragedies and personal stories are indelibly connected And it was the connection of these two seemingly dissimilar aspects of disaster that Linda Wells captured in Dead Love She did a very good job of it too It is in the opening chapters of the book that we learn about Maggie Ryan, David Grant, Joey Caruso, Suzy Chen and Maxwell Graham Of course, we are told of their jobs, or the circumstances that lead to their connection to the disaster, butimportantly, we learn about them as people, about the loves of their lives, their children, the things that brought them happiness, the things they feared, their confidences and their insecurities It was all there in those opening chapters, expertly woven together to give us a muchgrounded perspective of the disaster to follow.As the reader, I found that I was able to enjoy, and follow the story in a muchemotionally intelligent way because of the way Wells structured the story The plot, and the developing human interest stories surrounding it are compelling I was intrigued by where the story might be leading, and as a result, I found myself flipping page after page, chapter after chapter at a brisk speed I reached the end very pleased with the story that Linda Wells created Having said that, in my opinion the book could have been 25% longer which would ve allowed a bitspace for some of the other intriguing characters to be further developed I m thinking of Lee and Greg Dead Love is a first rate mystery thriller I look forward to the future novels by Linda Wells

    There are several positives and a few negatives to this book from my perspective I m going to try to outline them without major spoilers.First the positives The plot the premise is scary because it is simple and highly plausible It preys on our global paranoia and the sure and certain knowledge that there are certain evils we cannot ever defend against, no matter how hard we try We can reduce the threat but we can never truly eliminate it And that makes it frightening because we can easily There are several positives and a few negatives to this book from my perspective I m going to try to outline them without major spoilers.First the positives The plot the premise is scary because it is simple and highly plausible It preys on our global paranoia and the sure and certain knowledge that there are certain evils we cannot ever defend against, no matter how hard we try We can reduce the threat but we can never truly eliminate it And that makes it frightening because we can easily believe that it could happen.Also on the positives, it s a quick read, even with my limited reading windows I tore through it in no time at all which makes it a perfect holiday read, for example It bounds along at a vigorous pace and keeps you engaged throughout Further, it sets itself out as the opening book in a series, so you can expect an ending that promises another episode to come.This, unfortunately, for me is also one of the negatives To end in the abrupt and unfinished way it does, it readslike half a book rather than part one of a series I would expect to reach some conclusions to parts of the story but everything is left unfinished This may be justified by the next book but at the moment it just feels like I have been short changed and have read an incomplete novel.Another negative is the naivety in some of the writing Primarily, for me, the stilted and unrealistic dialogue Nobody really talks like that, people talk using contractions and colloquialisms, not conversing in a matter of fact text book style Additionally there is a lot of detail described in things that could be left implied, not spelled out quite so literally This is a new writer trying hard to paint a picture without some of the subtlety ofexperienced novelists who trust in our imagination to fill in some of the details.Then there is the sex I mean, a LOT of sex This is not a soft porn book but a lot of the characters have a lot of detailed sex in fact, it seems that the only thing we learn about the personalities of some of the characters is that they like a lot of sex which of course, is always great sex It seems many of the characters are, in fact, completely obsessed with it Don t misunderstand, I m no prude, and I certainly don t have a problem with the sex in this book, but it would be better to spend some time on other aspects of their lives And does everyone fall utterly and totally in love with the person with whom they are having sex Overall a decent read with a few features which I found irritating I am sure Linda Wells is learning her craft in this book and will refine her writing style as she gains experience and confidence, and yes, I am interested to know where the story goes in part 2, so I will read it Go into this book accepting it for what it is a debut book and part one of a series, enjoyable but flawed If you can live with that, you should have fun with it Read it for the plausible plot, read it for the beginnings of a strong female lead who I hope we get to know better as the series goes on and read it because we should invest our time in promising authors and give them time and encouragement to develop their art

    Dead love was an intellectual, fast paced thriller Linda Wells hit the nail on the head with the strong personalities of the characters Suzy and Max, I enjoyed the main character Suzy because she was smart, sexy, and powerful Im not much of a spy thriller guy, but I would reccommend this to all my friends.

    I ll start out by saying that I m a high school boy My teacher received this book, along with multiple others, before their mass publication through some lottery type website Long story short each kid in the class got a book, read it, and is now writing reviews Note my teacher definitely did NOT know the contents of the book, and told everyone of that fact She is also not responsible for me choosing this book, for I could have exchanged it and was offered the opportunity.Expecting a sligh I ll start out by saying that I m a high school boy My teacher received this book, along with multiple others, before their mass publication through some lottery type website Long story short each kid in the class got a book, read it, and is now writing reviews Note my teacher definitely did NOT know the contents of the book, and told everyone of that fact She is also not responsible for me choosing this book, for I could have exchanged it and was offered the opportunity.Expecting a slightly promiscuous terrorism mystery, I was quite surprised by the intense and painfully detailed sex scenes and then LACK of detail in the actual story Honestly if the whole book were written with as much delicacy, detail, and, frankly, excitement as the sex scenes, it could have been good I mean, it could have also removed a few of theunnecessary characters If it would have just focused on FBI Agents Georgiana and Mark going after Dr Chen, I could have gotten me a lotengaged Instead I had to devote myself tothan one chapter about the subway maintenance guy who gets sick Who cares Speaking of characters, I feel as though while they werethan one dimensional, they were nowhere near properly developed You could probably chalk that up to there being too many characters, as well Granted, you kind of get into the background of Suzy Chen, but she isn t the only main character At least, I don t think so There are so many people to keep track of Sure, we know EXACTLY what they look like, and most if not all of them are gorgeous enough to put Absalom to shame I ve never heard or read, I guesssexualized descriptions of so many people Chris Christie would ve sounded like a golden god if described in this book Another thing, any time they list out any department involved in an investigation or anything of that sort, they say the FULL NAME with the exception of the CDC and FBI It s a minor thing, but this book is FULL of minor little annoyances that pile up I can only read New York Metropolitan Transit Authority so many times before I have to put the book down for a bit.Now, going past the harsher of my criticisms, the story was actually fairly interesting Could it have been done better Yes But, it was enough to keep me reading A terror attack in the subways of New York Fascinating Some sex scenes I won t lie, it s not like I skipped them, those were arguably the best written parts of the book, which brings me to my final pointNext time, Ms Wells, just write a book of pure smut It s what you re best at, and there s no shame in it This was obviously an erotica novel buried in a lack luster plot and less than stellar writing It s like you were bored writing the rest of it, and if that s the case then I d suggest just going all out Bathe your audience in smut, and do it the Linda Wells way.3 5, not awful but not great One of theexciting choices for a school project, I must say
