  • Paromjit
    I had never read Karen Rose, but having heard so much about her books, I thought I would try this. It turns out this might not have been the best decision as it is the 4th in the Cincinnati series, with characters from other books in the series turning up here. It meant that at times I felt a little at a loss, not having read others in the series. Nevertheless, I still managed to enjoy reading this thriller. Adam Kimble is a homicide detective wh...

     This story was a great crime thriller that will have you turning pages like crazy! I picked up this title because I battle a severe form of PTSD and sometimes I enjoy reading how others cope with it whether it be fiction or not. The author had great descriptions of the characters emotions and you can feel the intensity through the pages. I love a good crime thriller and Karen Rose definitely delivered! I received a copy of this book via NetGall...

    *I received this Arc from Net Gallet in exchange for an honest review* Karen Rose has done it again you guys! Another nail-biting, romantic suspense with many twists and turn, with characters I've grown to love and am sure you will too. I couldn't wait to read this book, but unfortunately I had to hold off because I hadn't read book #2 and #3 of the Cincinnati series yet- I mean yes I could have gone ahead and read it but I didn't want any spoile...

    4 and a halfThis carries on the segment that this author has involved her readers in set in and around Cincinnati and honestly I somehow suspect that several of these characters will be revisited no matter what the synopsis says. Why do I feel this? Well honestly there are just so many characters involved here that the author would be crazy not to go back at some point and flesh them out more. That's also unfortunately why I knocked a half mark o...

    ***ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review***Edge of Darkness is fourth book in the Cincinnati series by Karen Rose. It is a gripping and emotional romantic suspense novel. The main characters are interesting and well-developed and the story moves along quickly, drawing you from one twist to the next. However, while it is a stand-alone novel, the sheer number of characters can get confusing if you haven’t read the previous b...
  • Leonie Byrne
    The very first thing I want to point out about this book is that it is being marketed as the final book in the Cincinnati series. However, having spoken to Karen Rose on Twitter I can confirm that this is not the case and there will be more! :) So, to get on with the review. There is a reason that Karen Rose remains one of my all time favourite authors and books like Edge of Darkness really serve to highlight those reasons. Part of the Cincinnati...
  • Kathryn
    Edge of Darkness by Karen Rose is one of those books that I just had to keep reading. By rights I shouldn't even like it, it is full of crime, nasty crime and so many killings. However its the fight of good against evil and I know the evil is going to be eventually overcome.I've only read two other books in this series but I want to go back and read all of them! Some day! In the meantime this was perfect and while it is part of a series it can st...

    This review was originally posted on Books of My HeartI received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Karen Rose writes amazing characters grabbing my heart and stomping on it,  in a world of dark, mysterious suspense. She has built a frighteningly realistic world of criminals, law enforcement, and those who help the victims. The couples in eac...

    I was so happy when I seen Karen Rose’s new book on netgalley, I was double excited when I got a email saying my request to read it was accepted. I literally jumped up and down so happy and started reading right away. I’ve waited so long to read Adam and Meredith’s story and was totally worth the wait.Edge of darkness features some of out favourite characters from previous books Dani, Deacon, Faith, the O’Bannion brothers, kate and decker...
  • Cindy ~ SnS Reviews
    Edge of Darkness gives us a man who is fighting for both his sanity and his sobriety all while trying to track a killer who is attempting to kill the woman he cares about. Adam Kimble had been on the edge for a while. Dealing with PTSD from the things he has seen as a Homicide detective and used alcohol to kill the pain. He met Meredith Fallon at cusp of this and has been avoiding her due to AA's recommendation of no relationship for the first ye...
  • Darcy
    Boy, there was so much going on in this one, so many story lines coming to a head and so many of the past characters that showed up playing a small role. It made for great reading!I think the best thing about this book was that Adam was finally facing up to things, to himself, to his friends and most especially to Meredith. It was nice to see that no one reacted the way he thought they would, instead they supported him and sort of made him wonder...
  • Trevor Snape
    This book captivated me from page one. It is worth 5 stars and more. This book is part of Karen Rose's Cincinnati series but can read as a stand alone story. For those familiar with the Cincinnati series many of the characters in this book will also be familiar, however this book concentrates on the characters Adam Kimble and Meredith Fallon. Adam Kimble is a police detective with the CPD and Meredith Fallon counsels sexually abused women and gir...
  • Elizabeth
    WOW! Karen Rose gives us another dark and chilling thriller!The action starts right out of the gate and speeds full throttle throughout the entire 640 pages! I could not put this book down! Adam and Meredith are brilliantly crafted! Their characters are complex, flawed and genuine, as are all the characters in the Cincinnati branch of the Romantic Suspense series!The mystery/suspense aspect of the story was on point! There were so many layers of ...

    Firs time I have read anything by the author and it did not disappoint,a brilliant and tense opening and then a great read throughoutI....I liked the characters although maybe focused on them just a bit too much on occasions?.......a difficult yet very current subject to write about which was handled well, lota of twists and turns in the book which I enjoyed,I would defintely read other books by the author amd found it a satisfying and enjoyabke ...

    Edge of Darkness by Karen Rose is the 4th book in her Cincinnati series. I have read a few books by Rose, but not in this series. The last book I had read I noted that it was one of the best thrillers of the year, and now in 2018 I can say the same. Wow, what awesome thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. Karen Rose has now become a must read for me. I have not read the previous books in the Cincinnati series, but there were so ...
  • Maggie K
    Every reader has their own thoughts and opinions: I liked how Adam’s (CPD Homicide Detective) character was written in book 1 of this Cincinnati series. The first teaser was hinted at through Deacon (FBI agent) that something had changed in Adam who had just returning to his original job after time with Personal Crimes. I had hoped the 2nd story would have been his. Teaser dropped in each story that came through clearly that something had happe...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Headline for an advance copy of Edge of Darkness, the fourth novel in the Cincinnati series.Meredith Fallon is celebrating the progress Mallory Martin, a young victim of abuse whom she has been counselling, has made in her recovery by taking her for lunch. They have hardly sat down when a reluctant gunman approaches them and tells them to run. In the ensuing standoff the gunman is shot in the head and dies and ...

    This book totally blew me away. Love it!Meredith has popped up in a number of Karen's books and have enjoyed her character throughout. Adam has always been moody and so to read his story was great to get a proper look into him and his mindset and it just made me want to hug him. It was enjoyable to read these books from both main characters points of view. What each of them had been through and especially Adam was hard to read at times and I foun...

    Everything starts with a bomb, lucky for our main characters it didn't explode. But to whom was addressed? And why?I love Karen Rose books, but this is not a standalone book, I don't recommend you to read this one if you haven't read the previous ones. This is a closing book, were the big case that had started a long ago will see their culprits in prison, finally!It's always bittersweet to read the ending of a series, it had been years since I re...

    This story was okay.In previous books we were introduced to Adam Kimble and his circle of family and friends, and to Marcus O'Bannion and his family and circle and his newspaper.I was excited to again follow the gang.But sometimes I feel that when an author becomes successful they feel pressure to write bigger books - and more words doesn't always add up to better story.I persevered, because the story-line was okay and as I said above - I was kee...
  • Kaisa
    4.5 stars! After all the hype I had slight doubts about this book delivering on Meredith and Adam, but it definitely did! Adam is one of my favourite heroes from Karen Rose (I loved the way he chose fitting ring tones for everyone, I do that, too!), and Meredith is high on the favourite heroine list, too. While certain aspects of the book were obviously predictable (this being romantic suspense and all), I have to say that this was one of the bes...

    The Cincinnati series by Karen Rose has probably been one of my favourites. This fourth and final book sees the turn of Meredith and Adam who have already had a brief dalliance, yet been separated over the past year while Adam conquers his demons.During an afternoon out with Mallory, Meredith finds herself staring down the barrel of a gun when a young man appears in the cafe, visibly upset and shaking, there is immediate panic while she tries to ...

    The 4th book in the Cincinnati series focuses on Detective Adam Kimble and Dr Meredith Fallon who have featured throughout the series. Adam is a troubled man with secrets and unusually for Ms Rose, he and Meredith are already acquainted having begun a relationship in an earlier book which seemed to fizzle out. In fact this was crucial to this story as both Adam and Meredith's secrets and demons are laid bare as their relationship re-ignites. The ...

    would like to thank netgalley and the publisher for letting me read this amazing book....this has to be the best book that karen rose has written, its full of action and mystery with quite a few red herrings... there is none stop action from the get go and it just doesnt stop, every page is a page turner that keeps you going and wondering who it could be and right to the end even when you find out who it is there is action that you just would not...

Coerced into trying to take the life of Dr Meredith Fallon he ends up dead as he is unable to follow through with the act.

    Massive Karen Rose fan. This is another HIT! This lady can't go wrong with her books for me. This one focuses on Meredith Fallon and Adam Kimble. Meredith helps young girls who have been sexually abused, but someone doesn't seem to want her meddling and targets her....... Adam is such a good character he is fighting through some dark things, it's such a good story it seriously keeps you guessing and guessing. I thought I had it all sussed but I w...
