Just Couldn't Put it Down Oct 12, 2007
This is a great book. I had a hard time putting it down. I don't see how anyone could NOT like the book. Yes, Alex does do some stupid things that a P.I. would not normally do, but he is human, and it IS his brother. You wouldn't use your skills from police school as much or your common sense for that matter when it was your brother that was the abuser/killer. Human nature would make you want to think that surely your own twin brother was not as bad as he appeared to be. I can see clearly how the whole book could have happened. It was very realistic in my opinion and a true heartstopper!!! I sure hope that we get a part 2 out of this.
Made Me Want to Tear My Hair Out Jan 16, 2007
It saddens me when I come across a truly bad book, mostly because I understand that this book is a "baby" for its author, Michelle Perry, but I have to say it's the first book I have wanted to burn in quite a while.
The plot is completely improbable and had me rolling my eyes almost continuously. Twins are always a tricky thing to handle in a story and as soon as Alex, a supposedly smart PI who once was a cop, calls his estranged twin brother, Cole, to break the news that his wife who's been "dead" for five years is in a local hospital half-way across the country because she was so terrified by his face thinking Cole had found her that she stumbled out in front of a car, I knew it was going to be a rough ride. The characters were not complex and I honestly couldn't root for either Jess or Alex because every time they turned around they were doing something incredibly stupid. And Alex's declaration of "love" was way too soon and just felt false. The cliffhanger ending was supposed to send a chill down my spine but I just laughed, relieved to have finished it.
So while this first effort by Ms. Perry isn't stellar, I also have on my TBR pile In Enemy Hands and I'm hoping that it will be a better plot, with better characterization and a believable conflict. So while others have obviously enjoyed Cain & Abel, it just wasn't enjoyable for me at all.
Couldn't put it down! Jan 2, 2007
This is an excellent book! I started reading it, and couldn't put it down. All of the characters are engaging, even the bad guy! It's an intriguing story with a seamless blend of complex character development, plot twists, romance, and humor. I read it until 3 am and hope to see a sequel soon!
STORY WAS PRETTY GOOD Jul 31, 2006
The only thing I didn't like about the story was that there wasn't enough romance. I was also dissapointed in the ending, I mainly read romance because I like happy endings, in this story I wasn't sure if it was happy or not, kind of left you hanging.
Reviews threw me :-( Jun 26, 2006
The reviews had me gambling on an author I have never read. I lost.
This might have been a book I could finish if the female lead wasn't constantly portrayed to be a TOTAL whimpering pathetic victim while the male lead was boring white bread who found this appealing for some strange reason. It was such a turn-off, I only made it halfway through.
