Character S Names But Then It Wasn s names But then it wasn and I was thrilled And because I did not get disappointed I feel like that it was that much of a great story Definitely a good whodunit Sommeil De Sang readMy only complaint is that Ieally did not like Anastasia I know t I eceived a copy of like Anastasia I know t I eceived a copy of Violent Delights through a Goodreads First Reads giveawayAnd now I know why they were giving them away They know no one wants to pay for themTo begin I had problems picturing the Duchness as a 39 year old woman Instead she was a 70 something old lady stuck in a castle The air to which the author lent to the actress lead to this picture in my head that I just couldn t shakeI felt that this book was written by two people One wrote the jumbled confusing name dropping story set in the present and a different one wrote the much smoother story arc of the flashbacksThe flashback story line was better except for the violent character mood swings One scene shows Pierce as a good guy next he is practically a monster and back again Gave me whiplash almost Obviously I thought that I would enjoy the storyline and I think I would have in the hands of a better writer with better proseThere was no mystery as to whodunit as there were so few people alive I normally enjoy books with flashback scenes but considering the author uined any sort of surprise by evealing all in the current chapters the flashbacks served no purpose How can I be shockedangered heartbroken at a death I was expecting along with no emotional ties to the dead as all the characters fell flat I ve been around cardboard cut outs with depth and life than the cast of this bookThis is book 1 I will pass on book 2 Thanks but no thank you I A Whale In Paris really like this book and once I got into it Ieally got hooked My biggest complaint however is there are SO many characters This makes is initially so confusing and hard to follow Note the authorput a list of characters along with their the part in T I This would make the book so much easier to follow until you learn the characters Otherwise great book very entertaining These Violent Delights was fantastic It s absolutely one of my favorite books As an actor I expected to like it for the sake of its movie setting the characters all being actors or connected through their involvement in a fictionalized film version of the old Tristan and Isolde story What surprised me was the protagonist Anastasia and how completely wrong I was every time I thought I had the mystery figured out Anastasia wrestles with agoraphobia "A Disorder Which Affects A "disorder which affects a people I know personally I Object Oriented Multithreading Using C really appreciated the writer s care and attention to how much strength Anastasia shows in her pursuit to solve the murders of her former cast mates despite the constant hurdle she faces with anxiety She s a character who comes from a situation which presents a ton of obstacles yet she perseveres in a brilliant display of natural non traditional modern heroism Mark her down as a feminist character for the agesThe trouble with this book and it s a good kind of trouble is that I couldn t put it down while simultaneously wishing it would never end I think it s a very clever part of Linn a s writing that like Anastasia you almost feel like you can t see this through to the end yet you can t stopunning and so you must turn the page I think it s the mark of a good writer and the mark of any Sedam Zvonara Majke Marije I Druge Pripovijetke Jama Izbor Iz Poezije really good book it s a blessing when you encounter that problemThe writing is veryeal absorbing sexy and cerebral It s Cages Of Pain romantic but a cut above otheromance novels in the way that it sticks to the adventure which is in itself omantic and the actual storyline The characters even the over the top onesesp Anastasia s mother all have a way of hitting the heart of human nature that is completely spot on The stakes are high enough to make you hold your breath and Linn a keeps you guessing until the very end TVD is a book I highly ecommend to anyone interested in movies actors and celebrities murder mysteries and that smart touch of Saving The Gray Whale romance Can t wait for the next book in the series I found These Violent Delights to be At once sexy and thrilling These Violent Delights sets the stage for deadlyomance and chilling mystery Beautiful actress Anastasia Day is a prisoner in her dead husband’s castle trapped by her fears of the outside world As plans unfold .

Ht I aced through this longish novel
In What Seemed Like Next To Nowhat seemed like next to no and found I was sneaking a few pages here and there when I was supposed to be doing other things That s a symptom of effective pulp literature of course and it struck me after a while that this was in essence what I was La Bougresse reading pulp literature for the 21st century I could point you at countless examples of clunky writing andotten or cardboard characterization even spelling errors like broach for brooch and Tinkerbelle for Tinker Bell but the fact When The Elephants Dance remains that scoff as I might about all the book s narrative infelicities and plotting follies I was held in its graspThat said the text desperately needed some editorial tidying the denouement was outrightisible and I eally eally could have done without the spanking scenes I was also a little troubled by the age gap between Anastasia and one of her lovers although the The Doorbell Rang relationship was perfectly legal Come to think of it I ve occasionally found myself confronting ualms similar to all of these wheneading original era pulp pieces so I guess it s part and parcel of the literary style This is a tale of one woman in two very different eras of her life and two very different women The main character Anastasia as a young woman goes after what she wants ather timid unsure but with total knowledge that if she works at it she can have whatever she wants As she s a young movie starlet and has been cast in the lead ole she is always surprised when others ecognize her talent when they show her love because her mother is a fall down drunk that Anastasia has had to support since she was small child Even giving up her education to make sure her mother has a oof over her head and food up her education to make sure that her mother has a Orphan Train Riders Charles Christmas Gift roof over her head and food the fridgeFast forward to current day due to events that occurred in her youth Anastasia has developed aather cryptic view upon life and those that surround her She is a widow of a very wealthy man She did not have children with this man nor is the story of how she came to be married to him explored but she is the Lady Step Mum of a large estate that now belongs to her step son who has assumed his father s titleThe story line weaves back and forth between a young woman and a much older and neurotic woman jaded by life s offerings She does NOT want to be a part of a painful anniversary of a movie she made as a young woman But as she is the star many from the movie contact her and beg her to be a part of the new Punisher By Rick Remender reelease It does not take them long to discover that many of the past crew and actors from the movie have died A Chosen Path rather mysterious deaths Leading the small group of friends to piece together the mystery and importantly to discover WHO is the killer It took me about fifty pages to figure out that one is going back and forth in time From a youthful Anastasia to a much older woman Once I had that down the story flowed uickly for me Iteally was an easy Kjennetegn read My interest was captured by the main character aecently widowed 39 year old English duchess who had been an up and coming actress 20 years before Now it seems everyone involved with her last film a world wide smash has been dying mysterious unexpected deaths Thinking it s too much of a coincidence the duchess contacts 2 others who were involved with the film and they try to cobble together possible murder motives and suspects Lots of interesting characters pop up throughout the story as it gets involved and puzzling and then there s the threat that the main character and her 2 companions might be next on the murderer s list The duchess past is evealed alternating with the present story and a very omantic and passionate past it is so the eader gets information and clues as to who the murders might be A page turner but I was a bit disappointed with the overly complicated ending Although These Violent Delights has a slow start the novel is full of love murder and betrayal enough to keep you on your toes The intermittent flashbacks eally will you decide whether or not you sympathize with Anastasia the main character As a mystery genre it has an unexpected and an overall fulfilling ending I did not expect the mastermind of the murders to be that certain character The sheer amount of characters can confuse the story especially at the beginnin. Ming of the steamy movie Can she stop the murderer before the Rising Frenzy Men Of Myth 2 reelease Remember Who You Are reunion becomes everyone’s final curtain Written by best selling author Sharon Linnea These Violent Delights will leave theeader breathless until the next Movie Mystery. ,

#done it mystery #it mystery I d highly ecommend to pick this one up and be eady for a wonderful time along with Duchess Anastasia Stacy Huntington friends Sharon Linnea certainly knows how to grab you into a story Her characters were captivating the story very believable and she had me guessing through to the end The story was interwoven with the past history of the characters making this a great mystery As the first in a series I am excitedly awaiting the next Anastasia had me panicking with her at times A nail biter until the end the character I chose as the killer was NOT the correct choice and I was totally blindsided Great attention to detail in the story background and characters Because I ve spent part of my professional life writing about movies I have a fascination for novels that have the cinema or moviemaking as a backdrop When I spotted These Violent Delights for sale a few months ago I therefore snapped it up a murder mystery set in and around the making of a classic movie what larksTwenty years ago young Anastasia Day was plucked out of nowhere to star as Isolde in hotshot director Pierce Hall s screen adaptation of the Tristan and Isolde legend Since then she s known love and tragedy and has become an agoraphobe subject to panic attacks When plans are announced for a twentieth anniversary erelease of the movie and everyone seems to want to Silberlicht Schwanenzauber 1 ropeecently widowed Anastasia into them she begins to ealize that far too many of the cast and crew seem to have shuffled off this mortal coil under curious circumstances Could someone be conducting a vendetta against the participants in the movieWell of course they couldWith a small group of surviving friends from the original production whom she trusts or can she Anastasia sets about trying to bring the hypothetical serial killer out into the open agreeing to use herself as bait Is this an altogether sensible ideaPerhaps not The novel s intriguingly structured with some passages being set in the present some twenty years ago around the time of filming and some being extracts from press puff pieces or the Making of book that was published as a tie in to the original elease Linnea controls these disparate strands very well I was never in any confusion as which timeline I was inThe moviemaking background seemed to my untutored eye to be pretty authentic and a cover uote from Wesley Strick screenwriter on things like TRUE BELIEVER 1989 CAPE FEAR 1991 and FINAL ANALYSIS 1992 and director of The TIE THAT BINDS 1995 would seem to affirm this impressionThat s the good news Also good news is that These Violent Nights is something of an addictive Ber Den Feldern read Helped by an insomniac nig.
