    As much as I love this series, this particular book didn't do it for me. And really it was just because of one thing. Every single page - and I mean every single page - had Jared telling Harper how beautiful she was and how much he loved her, how smart, how sweet, etc etc etc. Yes, Jared, we get it. I was on a sugar high by the end of the book. But maybe it was just me. I think if it could have been dialed down just a little, it would have been much better.

Now having said that, I still think Ms. Hart is an amazing writer. I will continue reading this series along with her other books. Update January 19, 2017...Reread this book. Still totally in love with this series.

    2.5/5 stars This may be because I ended up listening to book 3 right after book 2, but in this book I started seeing a lot of things I'm not a fan of. Sure, I still get annoyed with all the men falling for the MC, and the constant bantering that isn't funny anymore, and how flat all the characters are. And yet again, there were no really important female characters but a bunch of important male ones. I also noticed I had some trouble with the writing now.

And yet again, there were no really important female characters but a bunch of important male ones. I also noticed I had some trouble with the writing now. There are some major repeating things and unnecessary words going around. Probably to fill out the book, as it is rather short. The story was something new compared to the two previous books, which was growing into a problem for me. The story here focused a lot on the character development and relationship arc, which I'm not that big a fan of, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy it. I didn't enjoy it here. The thing is, though, that the author don't have that much imagination, it seems. As stated before, the characters all seem to be mostly the same - not to mention perfect in looks *ugh* - and they talk the same and banter the same. The dialogue is always alike no matter who it is between. Also, I see it in the story. While the story in this book took another path, it turned out the same as it did in the other two books. The bad guy was made from the same mold and it was easy to spot who it was and what the story was about rather early in the book. While this series has been enjoyable - in a guilty pleasure kind of way - I don't think I will continue listening on. There are other, more interesting and well written, books out there I would rather spend my time reading/listening to. Listened to this as an audiobook

    Too much sexual banter! Come on, enough is enough. Won't read any more of the series because of all the sexual banter and innuendos. It slowed down the plot. Yuck!

    Seriously! How much sex does Jared need - although there is no detail, it still detracts from the story, when they could have been solving murders they were having sex or having baths!

    Jared and Harper are going on vacation to one of Jared's oldest friend's house. It's going to be a murder mystery event, but it all changes when there is a real murder. Now, Harper and Jared must share her secret, and figure out what is really going on before it is too late. This book was really good. I enjoyed it a lot more than the first two, and I liked how Jared and Harper acted together. I also thought the story was really interesting as well, and now I can't wait to read more.

    Predictable How is this a mystery? We basically knew who the guilty parties were right away. I had hoped it was too obvious to be them... But nope, it was. The main characters act like teenagers in heat. It was a bit annoying.

Harper doesn't tell him about talking to ghosts right away, just tells him a story about how she talks to herself.. Josh thinks she is lying and has some mental problems, which he promptly tells Jared.. which doesn't make a difference.. Then another ghost turns up, this one is very recent in fact he was at the murder mystery party.. A lot of secrets were revealed about Josh's family, and that Harper can see and talk to ghosts.. This was another fun read, and i look forward to continuing the sereis

    Favorite Line - The first line in the book. A hell of a way to open the book. the Tom foolery that goes on between Harper and Xander are comical. There is nothing better than having a best friend that you can confide everything with and is great with his sexuality. Although I am reading the books out of order I have enjoyed the antics of Harper. It seems trouble has a lo-jack on her no matter where she goes. Reminds me of a criss between Charley Davidson and Mercy Thompson all the way down to the Favorite Line - The first line in the book.

    What to say The story line is good. Nice job tying it all together. I feel the author goes overboard with the love, sex and constantly having Jared seem like a sex starved individual. Seriously to the point of nauseating. It leaves you feeling that Harper is only a toy and there is nothing else to their relationship. It happens so often that it actually takes away from the story. I give it three stars. I am not sure yet if I will read the next one.

    I'm a fan! This reader was SO happy that Jared was getting Harper away from Zander to begin implementing the adult concepts of boundaries and appropriateness but, oh well... At least this is a great story with an unnecessary tragedy from the past providing impact on the present, a well devised mystery within a mystery, and decent character sketches.The seven deadly sins are even represented (two overcome by a good guy going through a hard time)!

    Another good book in the Harper Harlow series Another good book by Lily Hart. In this book Harper and boyfriend go to a murder mystery weekend at one of his friends hotel. Let the fun begin until a real murder happens and a 20 year old murder also shows up and both murders are related! I would recommend this Author and all her books, yes they are that good!

    Another winner! I have fallen in love with the Harper Harlow series, and book 3 was not disappointing. There were wonderful, laugh out loud scenes between all the characters, 2 murders to solve while trapped on an island with the murderer. Of course, Harper Harlow's secret is what saves the day. Definitely, a must read.

    Oh, What Fun! Want to go on a Murder Mystery Event? This novel provides the pretend one and a REAL One. The interaction between Jared and his college roommate is intriguing, and the ghosts and their stories truly make us care. Honestly, I had no idea how things were going to be resolved. Trust me, I was not disappointed. 😎

    Good character interaction. I like the new character Josh, although his acceptance of the big family secret was a little too easy. That felt forced. I guessed at the "bad guy" as soon as that character was introduced. Not my favorite series by this author, but still enjoyable.

    Love this series. Lily Harper Hart has done it again. This book was exciting from page one until the end. If you enjoy sarcastic heroin and exciting ghosts you'll love this book and series.

    I wish these characters would mature enough to carry on actual conversations. The constant banter is exhausting. The running gag about the guy's nipples was beyond ridiculous. And why the constant need to let everybody in the cast know they are having sex. Who cares?

    Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future. 2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author. 3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up. 4 sta Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star...
