Karen Rose: Her earlier books

After reading this trilogy, I got the urge to go back and re-read Karen's early books, and try to catch any I might have missed in between.  I'm starting with two I know I've already read:

 

Don't Tell   Have You Seen Her?

Re: Karen Rose: Her earlier books

I'm going to be a zombie by the time I get through reading (and re-reading) Karen's books.  The trouble is, once I start them, I can't sleep until the darn book is finished!

 

Went out and bought a couple more from her backlist today:

 

I'm Watching You   You Can't Hide

Yes!Becke:  You are reading the correct one now of all of them I still like You can't hide the best. I am reading Die for me now and love it.

Re: Karen Rose: Her earlier books

I'm Watching You is my very favorite. It's perfect. Even the killer tries to protect Kristen (the heroine) from the effects of his killings. It's the only book that the killer isn't after her, or targets her. She actually gets caught up in a bad place because of the killings, and he feels bad about that. I even love him. LOL.

It's the most perfect book: Abe and Kristen are the best. Of course, Mia and all the Regans.

Count To Ten is pretty perfect, too, cause it holds the most reccurence. And You Can't Hide. I love it mostly because of the Regans, though, the main story is interesting, I didn't quite like the ending.

And they follow up on the side story of Jack and Julia.

I like the Chicago books waaaaaaaaaay more than all the others, though. I can't wait for Murphy's and David Hunter's books. They HAVE to have them!

Re: Karen Rose: Her earlier books

I've just started reading Kill for Me, and when the reviews say its best to read it straight after Scream for me, they are right.  Wish I didn't have to get off the train this morning!  I wonder who Karen will will focusing on next, I will have read all of hers after this one!!

Re: Karen Rose: Her earlier books

Yes, this is one series that you really need to read in order.  And, for the most impact, I think it's best to read them one right after the other.  They'll be good no matter how you read them, but when I read them this way, they really knocked me out.
