Reviews Edge of Midnight (Chasing Evil, #3)

  • ♡Karlyn P♡
    4.5 stars. A great chilling romantic suspense, and an author to watch. Edge of Midnight is for romance fans who like their stories with a good dose of nail biting suspense, a strong emotionally charged romance between the H/h, and a great deal of attention to the details. Crime reporter Mia Hale escaped the evil hands of a serial killer, but she has no memory of what happened. Special agent Eric Macfarlane with the FBI enlists her help to find th...

    4 stars – Romantic SuspenseThis is a good romantic suspense thriller. It has a mega creepy serial killer villain, dark, chilling, goosebump inducing suspense, a likable hero and heroine, and satisfying, well paced romance. This should appeal to fans of Karen Rose, Allison Brennan, Kylie Brant, Jami Alden, and Cynthia Eden.

    This was one CREEPY but terrific read. I enjoyed this romantic suspense very much and there was nice amount of romance. I plan on reading more from this author.
  • Christa
    I have read all three books by Leslie Tentler, and I thought each one was better than the one that came before. I enjoyed all of them, so by the time I read the third one, it was a strong "5" star read for me. I enjoyed the main characters, Mia Hale and Eric McFarlane, and loved seeing their relationship develop. Both Mia and Eric carried plenty of baggage, but it was wonderful watching them turn to one another and to overcome their painful pasts...
  • Anita
    Another great book by Leslie Tentler. I didn't want to put it down. Mia is a news reporter who becomes the story. She was kidnapped, tortured and somehow able to escape a serial killer dubbed The Collector. Eric is a FBI agent with the VCU, he's called in by his friend and fellow agent Cam. Cam knows Eric's past and that Eric has spent years trying to hunt down the serial killer. It's a personal mission for him to stop the killer before he kills ...
  • Diana
    Raising audiobook narrated by Bernadette Dunne to 4 stars. 3.5 stars for interesting leads and very compelling storytelling. Problem is I am so tired of the same story told by every romantic suspense author. The last six RS I have read by six different authors are all variations of the same plot.*Serial killer targets heroine*Cop/agent/SEAL swears to keep her safe*Heroine ignores hero's warnings and blithely puts herself in villain's evil clutche...

    Wow, this one scared me (last 10%). What a psycho villian!! I don't remember reading and shaking this much since I read Deadly Fear by Cynthia Eden. Definitely up for something light and fluffy after this one.

  • Manda Collins
    Another pulse pounding romantic suspense from Tentler, who is proving herself to be a solid author of FBI procedurals mixed with tender romance. We first meet heroine Mia Hale when she's just made her escape from The Collector, a serial killer who has relocated from the DC area to Jacksonville, Florida. A journalist, Mia had been working on a story about two missing women in the Jacksonville area before she went missing herself. As the first of t...
  • Victoria
    Come to me, little girl. You won’t cheat your destiny again. 4.25 CREEPY STARS! I was looking at GR recommendations for romantic suspense books and came across Edge of Midnight. I haven't read the other books in this series so not sure if they are related or not but Edge of Midnight seems to stand on its own just fine. It's actually one of the better romantic suspense/thriller books I've read lately. The villian is CREEPY and some of the detail...
  • Sue
    I read all three books one right after the other. I look forward to reading more books by this author.
  • Pamela
    Too long-winded, flat characters, and a romance that lacks any sizzle.
  • Tracy
    Too Much and Not EnoughThree years ago, FBI Special Agent Eric Macfarlane was in Maryland, hot on the trail of a vicious killer who called himself The Collector. As a member of the FBI's Violent Crimes Unit, he was trained to hunt serial killers, but nothing could have prepared him for his wife Rebecca becoming the sadistic monster's fifth victim. The Collector slipped through his fingers, making Rebecca his final confirmed kill...an obscene retr...
  • Cindy
    Plots ok, way too much sex especially since main character has just been tortured. Made me wonder if author was insensitive or uneducated. Well narrated and recommended for those who can suspend reality and compassion for victims to that point.
  • MarciaB - Book Muster Down Under
    Wow, now this is why I read romantic suspense.Leslie Tentler has woven an intense story in which she brings together two almost broken, but not quite defeated, characters.Mia Hale is a crime reporter with a local newspaper. Both fierce and fragile, Mia grew up being tossed between the foster care system and her unstable mother. She is a survivor and has risen above her circumstances by creating a solid life for herself. However, that is all about...
  • Lyn (Readinghearts)
    Early last year, the first book in the Chasing Evil trilogy, Midnight Caller was recommended to me. I read that book and instantly grew enamored of the author's writing. While these books are probably classed as Romantic Mysteries, and romance books are not my normal preference, Leslie Tentler's books are a cut above. Edge of Midnight is another winner for the author, who writes like she has been established in this field for a while. What I part...
  • D.B. Reynolds
    This is the third book in Tentler's Chasing Evil trilogy of Romantic Suspense, and possibly the best. I enjoyed both of the previous books, but this one was truly engrossing. Mia Hale is a reporter who was captured and tortured by a sadistic killer known as The Collector. The only difference between Mia and his previous victims is that somehow she escaped. The problem is she remembers nothing of her kidnapping and torture, or even how she got awa...
  • Lyndi W.
    I prefer it when we don't know who the killer is, but there wasn't a lot of mystery or suspense here. Everything was kinda laid out in front of you the whole time, you knew everyone's motivation and plan... it was odd. The author even wrote the climax as though it were a big reveal, but you already knew all the information that "came to light" at the end. I like being unsure right along with the characters.Aside from that, I don't really have any...
  • Pamela
    This is the third book in the Leslie Tentler series. Ms. Tentler is an excellent mystery-story teller, and I have read and loved all 3 of her books. Her other books rated 5 stars from me, however, "Edge of Midnight" left me wanting a little more. Although still a great book, "Edge of Midnight" leaned a little heavy in the romance department, and not heavy enough in the mystery department. This is my only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
  • Phyllis
    This was another winner from Leslie Tentler. This is the 3rd book in her Chasing Fear Trilogy and it was very good. Although it is part of a trilogy you can read them in any order. Out of the 3 b00ks I believe the 2nd book Midnight Fear was the best.
  • Keri
    3.75 Stars. This was a good solid wrap up to the trilogy. I liked Eric and Mia as individuals, I just didn't quite feel their connection. The overall story was good and I am looking forward to see what else LT has in story for us.
  • Teresa
    Started out a little slow, but built to include a wealth of chracters and emotions. The H and h were well developed though I thought Mia could have had a little more depth. Eric had a lot on his plate a killer who wanted to cause as much pain for Eric as possible, dealing with going over his boss head to lead on this case and then trying to come to terms with the death of his wife. Cameron was a nice addition as Eric's partner on loan and Mia's f...
  • Nicole Milla
    I haven’t read the other books in this series, it was fine as a stand alone book. I think the plot was good and had great potential but unfortunately I just couldn’t get hooked on this. An easy and quick read but not the gripping “sit on the edge of your seat” type book I was hoping for. Sure, there were some gruesome scenes but there just wasn’t enough mystery or suspense to keep me guessing. I really wasn’t fond of Mia. I found her ...
  • Kathryn
    Wow such a creepy spine chilling book. With a serial killer like this, I dare you to not triple check all the locks in your house at night. A fantastic romantic thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. A bit of an obvious ending but it does not take away from the story as a whole and you are still satisfied with the conclusion. An amazing trilogy by Leslie Tentler, and from now on I will be marking all her books as to read.
  • Katrin
    Die Charaktere waren mir nicht so sympathisch, wie die in den vorherigen Bänden.
  • Blood Rose Books
    This is the third book in Tentler's Midnight series, however, each book has been written as a stand alone and I did not find that I was confused or missing anything that occurred in previous books as this is the first Leslie Tentler book that I have read. In this novel Tenlter explores what happens when one of a serial killer's victim is able to escape and his obsession of continuing to complete his collection.Mia Hale is a crime reporter for the...
  • Noelle Pierce
    This final book in the Chasing Evil trilogy was even better than the first two, but induced some nightmares. No, wait. That's a good thing. I had to pull myself from the book a few times and remind myself that it was fiction. Leslie does an amazing job of describing the scenery and situations that it's easy to get swept into the investigation and the suspense over whether the good guys will figure out who the bad guy is before the next murder.Tha...
  • Willa
    Romantic suspense is my genre of choice. I love a good mystery, following the clues, layered together with the romance. In a genre where Secret Ops, Black Ops, Undercover Ops seem to be prevalent at the moment, complete with three, four, five or more team members all waiting in the wings and queuing for their books, finding this standalone one was a real thrill.Mia Hale is found on a stretch of beach by two cops, having been kidnapped and torture...
  • Scooper Speaks
    Favorite Line: “He began to squeeze, thrilling at the bob of her small Adam’s apple under his thumbs.” (p. 380, egalley)Edge of Midnight feels like an homage to the classic story Kiss the Girls written by James Patterson, but it has a definite romance angle. It feels like Patterson with a dash of Catherine Coulter. What you need to know: Edge of Midnight is a thrilling romantic suspense told in the third person and the final installment in ...
