Metsy Hingle (Author). I chose to read this book because I wanted a predictable, easy flowing, crime thriller book to read and it did not disappoint as it was very predictable.

Metsy Hingle (Author). The characters and plot line have all been done before in various other crime thrillers so I was not reading anything new. The setting of New Orleans during Mardi Gras also seemed rather predictable and familiar to me (I seem to think deep down that I have seen a movie similar to this book).

Behind The Mask book. My first try of Metsy Hingle's writing, and it won't be my last. BEHIND THE MASK was a highly enjoyable, engrossing read, and usually I don't even like romantic suspense that much. This book is written in a wonderful, flowing style that is easy to read. The reader gets absorbed into the plot, because the author never sounds like she's trying to impress the reader with her vocabulary or an overly complex sentence structure.

I am a great Metsy Hingle fan, and this book is her best so far. The characters and plot are believable, the New Orleans background is fun, and the suspense is well crafted.

This is a well written romantic suspense book that was fairly entertaining. I had no trouble putting it down to do something else, but I did enjoy it.

The hero, Michael, has been hired to find the heroine, Elisabeth/Lily, by her psychopath husband. This is a romance book, so of course Michael and Lily fall in love with each other and get their HEA. Both were likeable characters, but as they were written, Michael carrried the angst to extremes and both Lily and Michael has moments of less than stellar intelligence. For example, they know the husband and his goons are looking for them, but do they hunker down and use room service until it is time to escape? You guessed it! No, they opted for wandering around out in the open and going to restaurants. Hello, has anyone heard of pizza delivery? There were other instances like this, where the reader had those "you must be kidding me" moments. Despite this, their characterization was executed well enough that they remained appealing characters. It was just that with a bit of tweaking, they could have been so much more than they were.

The husband was a well written, slightly over-the-top villain, who almost stole the show. Definitely evil personified. The young son was a cute, appealing character, and other secondary characters were brought to life by the author's descriptive writing. Although the restaurant employees, the costumer, Lily's grandmother's friend and one of the minions were minor characters, they were fleshed out with enough detail and personality, that they were not cardboard or one-dimensional characters.

The plot about Lily trying to save her son and to escape from the psychotic husband was a good one, and it held my interest. The author presented multiple points of view, which was an effective technique. The reader could share the thoughts of the heroine, hero, and villain, as well as those of one of the minions. In addition, the author alternated scenes between the central characters, so the reader had a sense of the events happening in conjunction with each other and this made it feel more realistic. The plot could have used a little tweaking also, but overall, it held together and engaged me.

This was a very good book for curling up with to pass the time, and it was enjoyable. The author writes well, but this book was a little disappointing. Although it was a good book, it wouldn't have taken much to be even better. The framework was there, and most of it was filled in, but there were a few skimpily covered areas that made it feel patchy.

Despite some flaws, I do recommend this book to anyone who wants a light, entertaining read. The Mira imprint's romantic suspense books are usually not as heavy and dark as mainstream suspense or thriller books, and this book follows that pattern; it entertains without a lot of highly graphic violence. There are some mildly graphic sex scenes, a couple accompanied with some violence by the husband, but these didn't go into much detail. It was more of a PG rated read than an R rated one.

There was one annoying formatting problem. When the story moved between scenes, there was no marking of the division. For example, the reader would be in a scene with the hero and heroine, then the husband would be talking to his minions and the reader would have a few seconds of disconnect until the transition was made. Once the pattern was understood, it wasn't really a problem, but it still should be corrected.

Recommend.

I chose to read this book because I wanted a predictable, easy flowing, crime thriller book to read and it did not disappoint as it was very predictable. The characters and plot line have all been done before in various other crime thrillers so I was not reading anything new. The setting of New
Orleans during Mardi Gras also seemed rather predictable and familiar to me (I seem to think deep down that I have seen a movie similar to this book). It all concluded rather conveniently without any surprising twists although the end was so soppy I almost gagged on the sugary sweetness of it. The writing style was fine, it flowed well and gave me the type of read I wanted to bridge the gap between two much heavier books. Not one I would say to "go out a buy 'cause you must read it" but if you have it on your shelves and want an easy read to bridge a reading gap, then go for it. I don't think I am inspired to go out and get anymore of this authors works from reading this but I am not totally put off her either if one happened to fall into my lap.

So nothing new, predictable but an ok read as expected. A generous 3 out of 5 stars as it gave me what I wanted at that particular time.
