catyerine Entered on screen reader. Jun 17, Shannon rated it it was ok Shelves: Yeah, Coulter is definitely off my TBR pile after this egg. It’s too bad, catberine the plot really isn’t that bad only reason this is getting 2 stars instead of 1but the writing is just terrible – the dialogue is a complete nightmare.
But what really got me was the excruciating, painfully bad dialogue. Coulter’s editor needs to take her and shake her because there is no excuse to write this badly after authoring so many books.
And I don’t recall the earlier books in this series being nearly this bad. View all 4 comments. Jul 24, Monica Williams rated it liked it. Fans of the Sherlock and Savich series will not be disappointed with this backfre. The husband and wife duo are in the cross hairs yet again. Good guys get themselves hurt, bad guys wreck havoc, and everything gets solved catherin the end. As always a good entertaining read that moves along nicely with action, coultdr family bonding, and sprinkling of romance.
Fans of the series will be glad to see this duo back catherind form! Jul 29, Traci Mad Hatter Reads rated it liked it. There’s always still a couple that hook up, but those smexy scenes we love so backfie have dwindled down so now they’re just alluded too and we have to use our imaginations to picture what’s happening.
I don’t have to have sex in every book I read, but the series has evolved My rating: I don’t have to have sex in coulger book I read, but the series has evolved over time cooulter sometimes I miss those earlier times.
It’s the characters I really love in this series, in fact, there’s a point in Backfire where I almost started screaming at my Nook because I was so scared about the fate of one of the characters. Sherlock and Savich are back as the main characters and we we also get to spend time with Judge Ramsey Hunt and his family-we were introduced to them in The Target book 3 of the series.
I felt the humor was a little forced in this installment, maybe it’s just me but I just didn’t find the quips as funny as I have in previous books.
There are several plot lines going on at once and, for me, few scenes just felt like they were in the wrong the place I’m so attached to the characters in the series that I will happily wait for the next installment. I just have to see what happen next.
Jun 28, Sharon Redfern rated it it was amazing. The action is jam packed and the book has more twists and turns than that famous street in Baxkfire Francisco. Judge Ramsey Hunt is shot at home shortly after halting a murder trial he has been presiding over. The Federal Prosecutor is missing and the defendants are sitting pretty.
REVIEW: BACKFIRE BY CATHERINE COULTER
Federal Marshall Eve Barbieri is one of the dozens of law enforcement people called in when Judge Hunt is attacked. Eve has a close relationship wit Wow! Eve has a close relationship with Judge Hunt and his entire family which makes this case all the more important to her. When he and his wife, fellow FBI Agent Sherlock hear about Hunt, they head off to be part of the team working on the case.
They bring their five year old son, Sean along with them as Sherlock’s parents live in San Francisco, and the whole family knows the Hunt family well.
However, the romance aspect of this book takes a back seat to the Hunt case. The presumed attacker is a busy guy or maybe gal and everyone involved is in danger throughout the entire book.
catherinne The sender of the note to Savich makes an appearance and adds more excitement to the mix. One of the things I love about this series is the continuity of the characters. Several of the ones we have met before in earlier books make an appearance and it is never gratuitous. The new characters blend in seamlessly and you learn coultef about them to care fairly quickly.
Of course, Sherlock and Savich are the linchpin of the story and they have some scary times in this book but their relationship is a strong as ever.
Emma is the center of a delightful subplot involving her being a piano prodigy that adds a nice light touch to offset the backfird of the story. This series just keeps getting better and better which each book. My only complaint is that there is way too long between books! Aug 08, Jean added it.
Too unrealistic and contrived, too many prodigy children, too. Too many toos, too. Nov 23, Sharon Michael rated it really liked it. Fast read, interesting although somewhat predictable plot, excellent characterization. The books in this series always seems to be entertaining reads, primarily for the characters, for me. Feb 21, Teri-K rated it really liked it Shelves: I’ve never read a book by Coulter before. I somehow thought she wrote romances with titles like “Her Savage Love” or something.
Yes, I know it’s 16 in the series and it can be really hard to jump that far into a series, but this particular book fit several difficult GR challenge tasks, so I decided to try it. I’m really glad that I did. The first half was so exciting I read it all in one eve I’ve never read a book by Coulter before. The first half bzckfire so exciting I read it all in one evening, with the Olympics on in the background.
A girl oculter only watch so much curling, you know? I polished the rest off the caherine day. It’s a story that starts with a bang and continues till the last few chapters. There was a twist I wasn’t expecting that answered a nagging question I had, and everything about the books pacing impressed me.
There are a lot of characters, and I didn’t worry about keeping all of them straight, just those that clearly were important to this book. There was no character development at all, and the children in the story acted in totally unreal ways, so I couldn’t give it 5 stars. But if you’re in the mood for a smart thriller that moves fast and will keep you reading this is worth a try.
Backfire by Catherine Coulter | : Books
I’ll be backing up and reading some earlier ones in the series. And I’ll take a look at her romances, too, just in case.
NB – Should you be in a challenge that requires you to read a book with the word “Hammersmith” in it – note that there’s an FBI agent named Hammersmith in this book. I enjoyed for the most part. I felt it dragged on.
