Hunted: I Loved this book. It is about a family in Canada, Father is a Police Officer, working mom, and the daughter moving to live at school. Then a bad thing happens and the family is torn up by this unexpected happening....(do not want to spoil what happens.) So this is the beginning of what happened to the Hunter Family.
Snatched: Diana is taking a run and comes upon a man sitting on a bench. Then she remembers he was there before she started her run so goes to check if he is OK. Turns out he is Dead. Then the handsome detective shows up and after talking to Diana more or less implies she might be the killer. Well sparks fly and these two are at it for sure.... This is a fast passed page turner and you just don't want to put it down because you want to know what is going to happen next. Lots of twists, turns and even a kidnapping. Oh and of course there is also the organ harvesting.. Is there a black market for organs? Also, was it suicide or murder that took one of the Hunter family members?
Stolen: Wow, another Great Book by Alison Golden. I just love Diana Hunter. Her intelligence and intuition makes a big difference to the Police who think she is just a magazine editor. Bu,t she if full of secrets and help solve the mysteries. This book is fast passed where you just can’t put it down and what to know what is going to happen next. Twists and turns that you’re not sure where it will go next. I have read all the other books and Loved them all but this one is really great. Alison keeps you on edge with her great writing and I just am waiting for the next one to come out. So if you like a good mystery with twists and turns and you don’t want to put the book down…Well You will want to get this one for sure.
Chopped: What a great book. I have read all the Diana Hunter books and Loved everyone of them. This I do believe is the best so far. A body is found and it shows the markings of a past killer who has haunted Diana for years. She wants to bait the killer so they can catch him. Opps things seam to go wrong and she is taken by the killer. Will they be able to find her in time? The book was hard to put down and kept me on edge the while time. Great Job Alison. Waiting on pins and needles for the next one.
A very absorbing set of mysteries. I thoroughly enjoy all of Alison Golden's books, but for me the Diana Hunter and Inspector Graham books are my favourites, but it should be noted that the Diana Hunter books are definitely not cosy, but are very exciting. The characters in these books are always very well developed and believable, and the plots are suitably twisty with surprise endings which are always difficult to spot. These stories are equally suitable for reading on a cold winter's evening or for sitting in the sun in the summer. between them they provide a few hours of very pleasurable escapism, very highly recommended. I received a complimentary copy of this box set from the author, but I have voluntarily written this review based on my own opinions.
A riproaring boxed set that will have you cheering on the sidelines!!! Most boxed sets bore me. You can only read so much of them before it becomes tedious to the extreme. However this kept me rivitted from beginning to end and then I wanted more! There is a central story line with each book functioning as a stand alone with it's own excellent story line that is action packed. The characters are well defined and come alive. If I could give this a TEN I would have!
The Diana Hunter Series Box Set by Alison Golden is a fantastic choice for those of you who need a little more edge to your reading adventures. I have read, purchased, and reviewed each of these books individually, so this review will not show up as a verified purchase...just an fyi, in case you want to read about each one, individually. Once I saw there was a box set available, I knew I had to pop in and give a quick review. :-) I highly recommend this series! Alison Golden is a wonderful author...you will love her! Her characters are awesome and her plotlines engaging! You will want to start with Book 1 in this series and go from there! Happy Reading!
Having read the first two stories in this series I had to grab this when it became available. Books 3 &4 are just as entertaining as books 1 & 2. Additionally, more new characters are introduced and more of the main characters backgrounds are further examined creating very compelling stories.
Diana Hunter stories combine detective and spy stories in a delightful way. There is a main story arc and a longer, series, arc that develops along the books. Each story a delight and we discover more things about the main characters in a natural way. Set in Canada, but going elsewhere when the story demands, the adventures are well worth the effort. Being able to get all of the early stories in a single go is a great deal. I recommend the books.
I love the Diana Hunter series. A little darker than typical cozy, but not as intense as crime fiction—the series strikes a perfect balance. If unsure, then try just one book first. I guarantee that you will be up into the wee houurs turning pages. While I have purchased each book after reading it, I was given free copies in exchange for honest reviews.
The books are quickly paced and just the right size for an afternoon's read. The characters are written as though they are real - like you can reach out and touch them. The plot keeps you going until the end.
