Minutes to Kill (Scarlet Falls #2) Reviews
This book had less technical errors in terms of plot. However, I enjoyed the first book a lot more. This one was a little too insta lovey for me. But points to the author for having a kickass female.
Unfortunately, after reading 3 books by this author in a row, they are starting to feel formulaic.
Hero has military background. Someone is a lawyer usually the heroine. Grandparents play parental role in main characters life. Abuse of some sort plays a role. And pets.
I'm not a re-reader. So if it' ...more
I received this book from NetGalley.
Minutes to Kill is the second book in a romantic suspense series. The first book is entirely unnecessary to reading and enjoying this one, however. The story revolves around Hannah Barrette. After a corporate gathering in Las Vegas, she finds herself in the middle of a kidnapping. She tries to help the girl escape, but fails. With a concussion, she returns to her home in Scarlett Falls, NY, where she plans to recuperate and keep and eye on her brother’s dog wh ...more
Received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
"Minutes to Kill" hooked me from the opening scene as a young girl caught in the horrific web of human trafficking attempts to escape through a motel bathroom window.
REALLY enjoyed it. Melinda knows how to write an intriguing story line and she's brilliant at pacing and writing action scenes.
Will definitely read more of her work.
Highly recommend to anyone who likes thrillers.
I found myself more exited about Melinda Leigh and the Scarlet Falls series than I have about a book or a series in a long time, so after reading Hour of Need, I knew that I wouldn't wait long to dive into Minutes to Kill. I tend to bounce around authors and series reads quite a bit, but I was so intrigued with this series, that there wasn't much time between reading both books in this series!
I love that Melinda Leigh creates such strong characters and stories, and I find that it's difficult to ...more
What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas. That’s a thing, right? It’s supposed to be a thing.;) Not in the case of Hannah in Minutes to Kill, book 2 of Melinda Leigh’s Scarlett Falls series. Mottos aside, this is that age-old scenario where you try to do the right thing yet incur the wrath of an unseen, avenging villain who is gunning after you for getting involved. This is why people look away. In Minutes to Kill, Ms. Leigh scares you and motivates you in equal measure!

Romantic suspenses are all about the who done it for me. Minutes to Kill is all about will she live and who is really behind all this. Readers know from the very beginning just how evil and twisted Mich and Sam are. We get plenty of page time with them while they are planning their revenge on Hannah. The suspense element here comes from one of their victims and how she unintentionally draws attention to Hannah in her attempt to save her life.
Hannah and Brody are good people. They do the right t ...more
