Reviews Deranged (Jessie Cole, #3)

  • Linda Strong
    This is Book 3 of 4 in Jessie Cole (4 Book Series). I highly recommend starting with the very first book. This book 'can' be read as is, but there are a lot of details that will not be here.PI Jessie Cole is helping her friend, Ben Morrison who was an investigative reporter. An accident left him with amnesia ... he remembers nothing of the past before that accident. While Jesse tries to help, Ben is having what he thinks are flashbacks ... and th...

    Book 3 in the Jessie Cole series and my favourite so far! Jessie, her family and friends are always getting involved in something dangerous and complicated. We learn so much more about the characters in this book while the hunt down the killer, and try to stay alive.Jessie is still trying to find out who the real Ben is. Since the car accident the reporter has no memory of his past. His father is in prising for murder and claims to be innocent an...

    4.5 Stars!Deranged was a phenomenal read featuring a fantastic storyline that sheds some light on a character’s mysterious past.For the last ten years, reporter Ben Morrison has attempted to piece together his past after a car accident left him with amnesia. After Ben hits in a wall in his search, he turns to his friend PI Jessie Cole for help. Upon agreeing to help Ben with his search, Jessie is sidetracked by a client requesting surveillance ...

    This is the third in the series featuring Jessie Cole, a private investigator in Sacramento, California. It's a good one, but I do strongly suggest reading the other two first. In large part, that's because all the recurring characters have storied (and very troubled) pasts; with so many in the mix here, it helps, I'm sure, if readers already have a leg up on what's happened in the past. I read the first, and I have no doubt I'd have enjoyed this...
  • Maranda
    Lots going on in this Jessie Cole crime drama. Started out a bit slow but may have been because this is the first in the series that I have read. Jessie is a detective with ties to the police and interesting friends with amnesia. Serial killer on the loose and it is a race to catch him. Ragan typed these events together nicely. I had not figured this one out. "A copy of this book was provided by Thomas & Mercer via Netgalley with no requirements ...
  • Trish R.
    WOW! I love these Jessie Cole books. I got this yesterday when it came out and I highly enjoyed every word of it. And, still, you’re left wondering about who and what Ben really is. The amnesia part of him is very exciting. I like to think he’s not a killer and it will be proved eventually. If you read the other two books you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you haven’t read this series you’re missing out.This was all about a ser...

    Deranged by T. R. RaganThis is the third book of Jessie Cole Series. Even though this book was so well written and gives you details of the past events to make sure you catch up without feeling like you are wasting time re reading details; I highly recommend reading the first two so you don’t miss out anything because trust me every bit of information is essential to enjoy this fast pase triller. You will be constantly guessing who is who and w...

  • Jennifer Oslowski
    Great series! Deranged is Book 3 in the series and I highly recommend reading the first two books to learn about the characters as I feel you will be a little lost otherwise..Jessie Cole, Zee, Ben, I love their characters and looking forward to the next in this series. Zee is my personal favorite! Ben had an accident that left him with amnesia with no memory of his past life.... He starts to have violent flashbacks that scare him and make him won...

Private investigator Jessie Cole is helping him, but the people who remember Ben’s troubled childhood are reluctant to talk to either of them. And the few who will discuss Ben’s early years have disturbing things to say. A husband requesting surveillance of his wife sidetracks Jessie’s investigatio...
  • Sarah
    Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of Deranged by T.R. Ragan that I read and reviewed.I did not think it was possible but the Jessie Cole series just keeps getting better. This third book in the series had Jessie and Ben looking for more answers about Ben’s past. I loved how as they got closer to some answers door got closed and more things happened to throw road blocks in their way. I can’t decide if Ben is a good guy or a bad guy and it is dri...
  • Megan
    Thank you, NetGalley, for allowing me to read and review before release!Written on a much darker level, my stomach was in knots for a majority of Deranged and in true Ragan fashion, you're taken for one crazy, chaotic and dangerous ride! So buckle up! Like Her Last Day and Deadly Recall, Zee, Colin, Ben and Jessie all come together to take down a crazy man on a killing spree.Deranged stood out for me in a way the previous books in the series didn...
  • Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey)
    Just as predictable as the last. But the story was good enough to carry me through. No real mystery about who done it. I was grateful when Collin wasn’t drawn in as the live interest. Until the end of the book, there was the author dangling carrots again.I’m not sure why the characters exchanged words of love. From my perspective, they spent maybe five minutes together so far in series.Enough about that, I’m so Team Ben, if she makes him in...
  • Cindy ~ SnS Reviews
    What harrowing ride from start to finish. I was so worried about things after the way the second book ended. Even in this book the author still puts you through the ringer until the very end. This is edge of your seat suspense at it best. Can't wait to see what's next.
  • Owl._.

  • Tarrah Marie
    Thank you to #NetGalley for this ARC of #DerangedThis is the third book in the Jessie Cole series. Ragan provides sufficient background that it can easily be read as a stand-alone but as with most series, it benefits the reader to start from the beginning of the series to get a comprehensive catalogue of the characters. Private investigator Jessie Cole lives in Sacramento and was recently saved from a serial killer by her friend and investigative...
  • Dawn Lawrence (Bonnies Book Talk)
    Deranged is Book 3 in the PI Jessie Cole series and my favourite so far. I highly recommend that you read these books in series order because there is a lot of background history on the characters that you will miss if you read this as a stand alone. Their histories are quite detailed and in depth and I feel that you will enjoy the book more if you read from book 1.This book is full of action from the get go, in this book Jessie is investigating ...
  • RedRedtheycallmeRed
    This book picks up pretty much where book 2 left off, Jessie is helping Ben try to piece together his childhood so he can get some answers about his flashes of memory. There's also an infidelity case that Jessie takes on, and a murder investigation that Colin is investigating. All of these events become related over the course of the book.I wish there had been a bit more levity, it helps when the subject matter is so grim. Zee provided some, but ...

    3.5 Stars.This is the third book in the Jessie Cole series and I do recommend reading at least book 2 before starting this one. Jessie Cole is a private investigator who specialises in finding the missing. And in this book she is trying to help out her friend, journalist Ben Morrison who suffers from amnesia and can’t remember 20 odd years of his life.While looking into Ben’s past Jesse encounters people who want to keep the past in the past ...

    Thank you NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer and T.R. Ragan for this incredible ride. Do yourself a favor and please read book 1 and 2 first. It lays the ground work and you can watch the incredible growth with all the main characters. Gut wrenching from chapter to chapter with little down time. Murder, suspense and you see the peices coming together. You are right there with them. I was dismayed with some of the past history brought up with Ben. I thoug...

This author really knows how to keep you glued to your seat!
  • Kathleen Gray
    Is Ben a murderer? Jessie doesn't think so and he doesn't know. Seriously, he's got amnesia. Luckily he's also got Jessie, who is one strong woman, who is helping him to sort things out. She's also got a business to run and oddly when two people she has been surveilling are found dead, there's a itchy feeling about identity of the murderer. There are good twists here but even better are the characters. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. A fast pace...
