  • Carrie
    Jane MacGuire has begun to be plagued by dreams of a girl that she feels that she should know but just can't quite grasp who this is that has been visiting her night after night. Jane does know one thing however and that is she feels this girl is in some kind of trouble and needs Jane's help. Drawing out the scenes of what she's seen in her dreams of the girl and her surroundings Jane is determined to find out just who the girl is and what she ne...

    If you need everything explained to you because you have no critical thinking skills and don’t mind crappy writing, this is the book for you! Johansen writes a lot of stuff in dialogue that should be exposition. What I mean by this is, when two people are having a discussion in which they know the background but the reader doesn’t yet, they don’t have to explain things to each other, but the author has to let the reader know, ideally in a f...

    Twenty-two books in and finally we have a....no, I'm not telling. But there could be several ways to finish that sentence and all could be right. Could be, because frankly, my dear, Johansen is never in any hurry to end a good story line. Even though she is expert at adding new lines that just, well…hear that giant sucking noise? That's me being sucked back in and enjoying every moment.This is mostly Jane Macguire’s book. Eve and Joe’s adop...

    Just what I needed to get out of my reading slump, an afternoon spent with these characters I know so well and totally adore. For long time readers, this is the book you've been waiting for. The usual romance, danger, and deadly skills mixed with some surprising revelations and such a satisfying ending. So much of the book's effect is in the build up of history, the deep and often complicated relationships between the characters, and the ways in ...

    The Eve Ducan series is a new favorite of mine. MIND GAME is book 22 in the series and pulls focuses to Jane MacGuire and Seth Caleb. I love when Iris Johansen lets other characters take the front seat for a book, allowing Eve enough time to breathe.READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW OVER AT FRESH FICTION!

    Mistake number one - reading the 22nd book in a series, when I have never read anything by this author, let alone anything in this series. Mistake number two - failing to realize how poor of a writer Iris Johansen is before I started reading this. Just because someone is a New York Times bestselling authors with millions of book sold does not guarantee they will know how to write. Mistake number three - reading and completing this book. It was ut...

    Meh. Sorry long time fans of this series but meh is all I can give. Johansen can pull a reader along but this one gets a little silly with all the psychic powers. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for believing. Usually Johansen's writing can get you to swallow anything but this time I found much of the dialogue repetitive and simplistic. That detracted enormously from the otherwise interesting and at times downright exciting plot. I spent most of ...

    I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway, thanks to St. Martin's Press and Goodreads for the opportunity. This book is part of a series of Eve Duncan novels of which I had read a couple of the books years ago, but this one focused on a different character, Jane MacGuire. It was interesting in the beginning with Jane's dreams and drawings of the girl in danger, but then lost me about halfway through with her trip to Scotland and Seth C...

    Cira is back! That is Cira not Cara. Well, Cara is back too, but only for a short while. For those of you not familiar with Cira, she was a slave girl turned actress during the times of Ancient Rome. She was also a real life person in the dreams of modern day Jane McGuire. Cira was introduced in the fifth book of the series, Blind Alley, when Jane was an adolescent and found that she had the ability to see into the past life of Cira through her d...

    Actual Rating 3.75 StarsIt has been a long time since I read an Iris Johansen book and I couldn’t wait to get into this. It was mysterious, intriguing, heart pounding….all the things that made me miss reading suspenseful thrillers. Mind Game is book number 22 in the Eve Duncan series. I haven’t read every book, but I have read a few of the very first ones. While Eve is not a major character in this book, her adopted daughter with Joe is… ...
  • Kathy Martin
    This 22nd book in the Eve Duncan series seemed to bring a number of long-running plot threads to a conclusion. It begins with Jane having dreams about a young woman in danger. She goes to Joe to help her find out who the girl is. Then Seth Caleb comes back into Jane's life and throws it into confusion again. She and Seth have a very difficult relationship. Seth is one person that Jane really doesn't understand but who fascinates her too.Things ar...

    3.5 STARSI am an Iris Johansen fan. The Eve Duncan series has become one of my must-read series. It is nice that this is a series that you can start at anytime, with any book, and get an entire story within one book. The characters are familiar from book to book but each story has a finished ending. There is a bonus of reading the books in order since it gives you the extra history of the characters and a little more understanding of their relati...
  • Joyce
    This may have been listed as an Eve Duncan book, but she only plays a sideline character in it. It is a Jane MacGuire book and a well done one at that. Jane is back in Scotland looking for Ciara’s treasure when Caleb enters her life once again. They begin searching for his half-sister, Lisa, and the people who have kidnapped her. The plots (there are several story lines running through this novel) are intricate and remarkably well woven. The ch...

    Starting a series on the 22nd book is not always a good idea, however from page 1 I felt like I already knew the characters. This book was full of everything you need to keep you turning the pages. My suggestion is to start it on a Friday night because you won't put it down until you've finished.
  • Maureen ~Bitch Can Write A Book
    FINALLY...I love Seth, absolutely love everything about his character. His dark side, his gift and his devotion. And while I mourned Trevor I always rooted for Seth & Jane. Intricate and complicated story befitting them. I also loved the back story of Eve & Joe. I’m so excited for more. I need more.
  • Rhonda
    Can't wait for the next installment!Fantastic adventure mixed with an emotional rollercoaster. As long as Iris Johansen is writing I'll keep reading. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    I always enjoy this series. Well written with well developed characters. I won this book on Goodreads and I am so excited that I got the chance to read this book. It is a book I will read again.
  • Aletris
    I won the giveaway for a copy of this ARC book. It has been quite some time since I've read a book in the Eve Duncan series. I remember enjoying the early books in the series, but I was flatly disappointed with this one. As this was an ARC uncorrected proof, I could easily overlook the few minor errors, and they do not factor in my rating.The idea behind this book was great, and it was interesting enough for me to finish, though at times I was te...

    Iris Johansen has mystified her readers with over 20 books and now she’s provided another one that is going to truly satisfy her longtime fans with answers to some of those questions that have been plaguing us, keeping us up at night, causing us to cook so distracted we end up using salt instead of sugar nearly killing people with apple pie gone wrong. Don’t worry she’s still able to keep those open ended questions going in that delightful ...

    Thrilling paranormal suspense…This is the twenty-second book in the Eve Duncan series.Incredibly vivid dreams have plagued the artist Jane MacGuire for years but they’ve always been about Cira, a woman who lived in the distant past, the one who hid a treasure the Scottish laird John MacDuff that Jane assists seeks relentlessly. Now Jane has dreams of a young woman who seems awfully familiar in appearance yet she can’t place, a woman she fee...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and St Martin's Press for an advance copy of Mind Game, the 22nd novel to feature forensic artist Eve Duncan and her family.Eve's daughter is going back to Scotland to help in the search for hidden Celtic gold that she and her friends have been searching for but she is troubled by psychic messages she has been receiving from an unknown woman she calls Lisa, a woman who is in grave danger. She teams up with the myst...

    *I won this book in GoodReads First Reads giveaway*I'll admit, it's been a while since I picked up an Iris Johansen book, though I used to really enjoy them. I've definitely missed a few - Eve has a son AND another ward? But I digress. It's not that the writing has changed all that much, so what was it about this book that garnered a very grudging 3 stars? It was just how absolutely unrealistic the characters have gotten. Not one of the main char...

    First off I’d like to thank the publishers for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.Jane MacGuire is haunted in her dream by girl who she doesn’t know but seems familiar to her. While visiting Eve, Joe, and Michael, Jane tells Eve about these dreams. Of course this hasn’t happened since she dreamt of Cira, which has led her to live in Scotland for the past several years, to help find her lost treasure...

    It's a strange way for the finales that have finally happened to wrap things up. I've read every single Eve Duncan book and practically all the other titles the author has ever written. Over the past few years though things took a turn to the weird and psychic as every other author appears to have done, (some with greater success than others) and taken a perfectly good series and eventually wrecked it by making something that's semi-believable an...

    St. Martin's Press and NetGalley provided me with an electronic copy of Mind Game. I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given.Jane MacGuire finds herself in a swirling mass of danger and intrigue, brought on by dreams that she soon figures out are not ordinary. Enter Seth Caleb, once again in her life, but this time in a more vulnerable position. Between searching the highlands for Cira's treasure and inadvertent...

    Jane starts dreaming about a woman in trouble who looks vaguely familiar. Trying to track down clues in order to help "Lisa" she soon realizes that the reason the woman looks familiar is she resembles Seth Caleb. Confronting Caleb Jane discovers that the woman is his sister and that she shares his mysterious blood powers although she has managed to keep her talent hidden. Now Lisa is being used as bait in order to get Caleb to do what her kidnapp...
  • LisaMarie
    I am a fan of Iris Johansen's writing. She has a knack of drawing you in to the story and is in no way in a hurry to let you go...or to write "the end", for that matter. Her character development and world building are brilliant, developing slowly and providing a concrete foundation. I've also read a few of the first Eve Duncan books way back when and remember enjoying them enough to read more than one. I need to go back to the beginning and read...
