READ ó Bloodroot Praise for the Maureen Coughlin series “Not only has Loehfelm created the most compelling complex patrol cop in the genre—part take no prisoners badass part too sensitive for the street rookie—he has also re energized New Orleans as a setting for the best in crime fiction going well beyond the clichés —edgy dangerous but pulsing with life Maureen Coughlin is as good as it gets” BOOKLI.

    READ ó Bloodroot BloodrootThere wasn't really anything wrong with this book my rating may be misleading I just can't get into thrillers I tried but I can't get into the characters I don't like immersing myself in the dark gritty worlds these authors portray This book had good writing and the plot moved along nicely I just felt bad the entire time reading it Kind of like the feeling you get one day after puking your guts out You don't feel necessarily sick but you definitely don't want to eat Your body feels like your blood has turned to pudding and your tongue feels wooden and fuzzy That's the feeling books like this leave me with I think I'm done trying to embrace them If you DO like dark thrillers then have at

    READ ó Bloodroot BloodrootI had real problems with the narrator of this book whose devotion to his destructive younger brother strains all crediblity The plot is melodramatic and also contains elements that complete shatter the willing suspension of disbelief necessary for this reader to enjoy a book

    READ ó Bloodroot BloodrootFirst thing I have to say is that the book really didn't come across to me as the thriller that the book's blurb promised For that matter I also expected the nightmarish institution of Bloodroot to come into play than it did Second thing is that there's spoilers in this review but I'm listing them at the bottomThe book's main character is for lack of a better description a somewhat whiny and washed up professor Kevin who spends most of his nights barely existing He's not happy in his job but does nothing about it He desires a beautiful coworker but is too afraid to pursue her He broods over how he could have done to save his junkie brother Danny but fails to see that there really wasn't much he could have done It's not until his suddenly clean brothe

    READ ó Bloodroot BloodrootOkie so lately I’d been reading thrillers and mysteries but this one is by far my favorite it has all of the elements a good thriller needs to have A good storyline unforgettable characters and last but not least some romance The storyline was very interesting throughout the entire novel I could see why certain things were written a specific way I also enjoyed a uote Danny said while speaking to his brother Kevin on page 66 “He murders because he’s afraid of the future of worlds and people he’ll never understand and never be a part of We call them terrorist because they cause terror but it oughta be because that’s all they feel” That uote literally game me chills because I feel the same way concerning terrorist Moving on to characters we have Kevin the “scardy cat” a te

    READ ó Bloodroot BloodrootBetween 3 and 4 stars worthy of rounding up to 4 stars This is less thriller ish and emotionally gripping than the cover might indicate Bloodroot is the story of two Staten Island brothers and their troubled relationship Yes there is a heavy crime and suspense angle but it was the relationship between Kevin and Danny that drew me in and sustained the story Kevin’s constant rescuing of Danny does get a bit tiresome after awhile I found myself wanting the guy to cut his losses and be done already but this dynamic is necessary to the plot Many reviewers complained that Kevin is a hard guy to like because he is basically in a rut washed up and completely unable
