  • Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
    5 Suspenseful Stars Wow this series just keeps getting better. Hello Again had me totally hooked. I was hanging on the edge and eager to sneak peeks ahead. I stayed up all night just to finish it. I feel Evelyn has really grown in this series from book 1. I also feel that Amarok and Evelyn's relationship has grown a lot too. The romance does take a back seat to the suspense but it's such a thrilling book that I don't even mind. Evelyn took some b...

Her newest inmate is Lyman Bishop, aka the Zombie Maker, whose weapon of choice is an ice pick, which he uses to crudely perform lobotomies on his female victims. Meanwhile, Jasper Moore, the man who brutally attacked Evelyn as a teen, is plotting his...

    Riveting, dark, and spine-chillingly eerie!In this second book in the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles, we head back to Alaska and the isolated Hanover House where some of the most depraved serial killers are housed and studied, and danger seems to be lurking inside and out.The writing is seamless and taut. The characterization is spot on with some of the usual gang back including the hardworking, determined Evelyn and the patient, sexy Amarok. And the s...

    Hello Again by Brenda Novak is the second full length book but third overall with the prequel novella in the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles series. Hanover House at novella length introduced readers to Evelyn Talbot who is the main character in this series. Evelyn had spent her life trying to find out what makes a psychopath and how to better understand them. She was tortured and almost killed by her high school boyfriend, Jasper, and has been dealing ...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I had a really good time with this book. I actually liked this book a lot more than the previous installment and am really glad that I decided to continue with the series. I thought that this book was very exciting and found myself wanting to keep reading for hours at a time just to find out how things would work out.This is the second full length book in the Evelyn Talbot series and ...

    ***** 4.5 Stars *****Cannot be read as a standalone.Although Hello Again is easy to dive into, I strongly suggest reading the previous books in the series to get a better understanding of all the characters. Each book is connected, and Eveyln's worst nightmare gets bolder and stronger.I love this series. The characters are all interesting, and the events that occur never bore me. Evelyn's psychological studies and interviews on rapists and murder...
  • Lexxie (un)Conventional Bookviews
    This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional Bookviews Hello Again was so eery, I felt the suspense during the whole story, and it just seems impossible to me that Evelyn will make it through the end. There is more than one enemy now, and my goodness, the ending left me speechless and breathless. Story: The suspense and the psychological thriller aspects were even stronger in Hello Again. Evelyn has more than one person she needs to be w...
  • Janel
    4.5 stars - I wish I could be Evelyn Talbot, just for one day, to study the minds of psychopaths at Hanover House – but only for a day because the wilderness is not for me and I’d rather not have a psychopathic ex-boyfriend hunting me down! Hello Again is book two featuring Evelyn Talbot and I highly recommend you start at the beginning of the series as the plot is continuous and it will likely weaken your reading experience if you haven’t ...
  • Sandra ~ ♥ Cross My Heart ♥
    4.5 Stars - Fantastic addition to the series! Riveting suspense, great character/relationship development, heart-racing twists & turns...A Must Read! As I mentioned above, I think Hello Again is a great addition to The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles Series.  Novak has picked up the pace, raised the stakes even higher, and dove deeper into the minds of the criminally insane through Evelyn's research at Hanover House - a maximum-security prison in Alas...
  • Sofia Lazaridou
    As much as it pains a part of me to say it, I want this series to end. Or at least end the Jasper part of the series. Have a new big bad villain after the third book. I am tired of having Evelyn being afraid at the idea that Jasper is still somewhere out there and he is going to harm her. She has grown a lot from the woman she was before she came to Alaska, but Jasper is still in her mind and she cannot truly move on with her life. Another reason...
  • RachelW (BamaGal)
    3.75 Stars. A little slow this time around, and too much personal angst muddying the action and plotline. Still a good read overall; and I'm still fully vested in this fascinating, creepy series. I mean, what’s not to like about an institution full of psychopaths and serial killers…not to mention the crazies and killers on the loose… lolBut what a mind boggling ending! I'm still reeling from the implications for the next book…
  • Sunny
    This is a wonderful surprise. I liked the previous books, but this one is an excellent balance of all the elements. It is a quintessential murder mystery seamlessly told from multiple perspectives. The overarching storyline gets a real boost in this book and the story advances at a good pace. Jasper has a significant role and his character is murderous. He is chilling coming off the pages. I also enjoyed the evolution of Evelyn and Amarok's relat...
  • Betul
    I absolutely LOVE this series! I don't read suspense novels like I used to but if they were as intriguing and awesome as this book then I would read so many more of them. Brenda Novak writes (Romantic) Suspense novels like no other, and she incorporates just the right amount of romance. I enjoy seeing the progress in Evelyn and Amarok's relationship. Especially Evelyn has grown so much in this book, and I can't wait to see more of it.There is the...
  • Yellagirlgc
    Just as good as the first book. Psychiatrist and survivor Evelyn Talbot is still working at Hanover House. A prison that houses psychopaths. This picked up right where the first left off. I still like where its going and am only getting more entangled by the two MC's.
  • Michele
    Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars - Top Pick!See the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comExciting, terrifying, and the type of story that will keep you wondering what could possibly happen next, Hello Again is concrete proof of Brenda Novak’s wonderful writing prowess.I think I say this every time I read something by Brenda Novak but boy do I adore her stories! This particular series will probably be difficult for some readers as it deals with psychopaths...
  • Aisling
    Phew...well when your main character is a shrink working with serial killers (because of her own traumatic past) you know it's not going to be a relaxing book, right? And it wasn't. I was hooked from page one and zoomed through the book. Excellent red herrings and side stories. The ending really surprised me but was brilliant for a series. This author gets 5 stars for plotting, characters, dialogue, romance (including one very steamy scene) and t...
  • Christine
    Gripping4.5 out of 5 stars! Another gripping addition to the Evelyn Talbot series, I cant wait to dive into Face Off! This is such a fantastic, well researched series that gives real insight into psychopaths.
  • Ionia
    This is shaping up to be a very interesting series with a complex plot that keeps getting more dangerous and compelling. I liked Evelyn Talbot in the first book, but in this one she gets even better. The author offers us a chance to get to know her main character much better, recounting the events in her past and showing us glimpses of what could be in store for her future. Brenda Novak handled the murders in this book with grace. They aren't ove...
  • Jean
    Hello Again is the 2nd book in The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles series. I did not read read the 1st book but I didn't have a problem following along with this one. However I do recommend reading the first book before reading this one. At 16, Evelyn Talbot was kidnapped and tortured by her boyfriend, Jasper, and watched some of her friends die by his hand. She escaped but so did Jasper. Twenty-one years later, still afraid Jasper will get her, she has...
  • Bobbie
    If this book had not been written by Brenda Novak who I adore as an author, I can say right now, I would have never picked up this book....not because it is not good......it is just too damn scary for me! I have a vivid imagination, and Books like this do not help. But, I love Brenda Novak’s Books and for Her I will read anything! This is the second book in the Hanover House, Dr, Evelyn Talbot series. You do not need to have read the first book...
  • Patricia
    What a fabulously dark thriller! HELLO AGAIN is the 2nd novel in the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles. Evelyn studies serial killers and is a psychiatrist at a prison in Alaska. I want to read the first book, and I can't wait for the third! I highly recommend this book. I received this book for my honest opinion.
  • Louisa
    Really awesome book! We were in the heads of a few killers, which was intresting, and yeah, it was great to be with cast again, and I can't wait for the 3rd book!
  • Sharilyn Dickerson
    This is the third book (if you count the novella that started it all off) in The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles. I love a good suspense read and this one does not disappoint!If you read the previous books then you know that Evelyn has opened a maximum-security prison in Alaska, and studies some of the world's worst serial killers. While she is still concerned that Jasper (the man who killed her friends and left her for dead twenty years ago) could show...
  • Pamela Priest
    This series keeps me on the edge of my seat, constantly jumping at every little noise around me. It's is one of the best psychological thrillers, full of suspenseful wists and turns. Yet it has some caring characters - the ones that aren't psychotic, that is. The ending will make your heart beat right out of your chest. And with the way the book ended, you know this will continue well into the next book or two or more. I was not able to put it do...
  • C Joy
    Bestselling author Brenda Novak takes us again to Alaska, a desolately cold place where a lot of possibilities are available.Evelyn Talbot is entertaining a new inmate, a Dr Lyman Bishop, fashioned after Hannibal Lecter for his lobotomies. I liked how the story was set ominously and it got my heart pounding. The reason why it took 5 days for me to finish this novel is because of the suspense.With the masterful writing, no one is safe. They may ha...

    HELLO AGAIN is the next installment and Evelyn Talbot is one of my favorite new character's by Mrs. Brenda Novak. Evelyn is the psychiatrist who heads up Hanover House, a maximum security prison in a small town in Alaska. Through her work interviewing and studying the worst of the convicted serial killers, she hopes to gain an understanding of what makes them tick or why they turned out the way they did. Evelyn has needed to find these answers si...

    Welcome to Hanover House.And the Chronicles continue. Another great, great book by Novak only seems to keep you hungry for more.....we find ourselves again in Alaska where Evelyn Talbot is running Hanover House, trying to find out what goes on in the mind of serial killers.Not only hasnt Jasper Moore (her torturer when she was 16) been found yet, but now there is another serial killer, Lymon Bishop, about to be released because of a technicality ...

    Hello Again by Brenda NovakEvelyn is surrounded by psychopaths. Some near. Some far. But all very nasty and evil people. Could you live your life knowing there is someone waiting for just the right moment to pounce and then destroy you, your family and your whole life?A thrilling read of suspense with lots of tension in the last half where you sit on the edge of your seat.2nd in the series but can easily be read on its own.You will want to read t...
  • Arlene Arredondo
    Outstanding work!Well-written fast paced thriller with bone chilling details.This is one book difficult to put down, there is so much going on in the plot and subplots that the interest level becomes so high that you will want to know who did it. The characters are well developed and the author sure did her research to accurate portrait the mind of a psychopath. Note: I received an ARC for review purpose and an honest and unbiased opinion.
