    After reading the first book in Shiloh Walker's romantic suspense Ash Trilogy, If You Hear Her, I could not wait to get my hands on this one. If You See Her picks up right where the first book left off and there is a nasty killer still on the loose in the small town of Ash, Kentucky.

    After reading the first book in Shiloh Walker's romantic suspense Ash Trilogy, If You Hear Her, I could not wait to get my hands on this one. If You See Her picks up right where the first book left off and there is a nasty killer still on the loose in the small town of Ash, Kentucky. We know all of the characters in play by now, while the romance arc is between Hope and Remy. As we get to enjoy the happily-ever-after play out, we are also watching the town from the killer's perspective. The whodunit aspect, which spans the trilogy, is so much fun!

    One of the things that I love about this book, and the series overall, is the evolution of the friendships between all of the characters. The authenticity of the relationships created is profound, and I love the give and take among the full cast. They are all sensible, and actually talk to each other when they need to and don't unnecessarily withhold information from each other. Nobody suffers from dumb-itis, and the lack of forced angst is refreshing. This definitely affects the pace, and keeps it flowing at a nice fast speed.

    I enjoyed watching Remy cherish and adore Hope. From the systematic mental and physical abuse she has suffered at the hands of her ex-husband, Hope is initially terrified of Remy. I don't mean just playing hard to get, she is sincerely terrified of him, and I believed it. Watching her come around to his endearingly charismatic pursuit is enjoyable and endearing. And Law. Love, love, love Law. We've spent the most time with him, since he's remained a solid figure in the first two books and he finally moves to center state in the finale book of the trilogy, If You Know Her. I can't flippin' wait for him to get some nookie! :P Oh yeah, and to find out WHO THE KILLER IS. I have no idea, peeps!

    Grade: A. I totally spazzed when I finished this book.

    Hope and Law’s friendship is becoming stronger and stronger.

    But Hope has her eyes set on someone.. Remy someone.

    It’s kind of nice to see her coming out of her shell and learning not everyone is like her EX.

    The killer is still lurking but no one has any leads and the lead they do have are small until stuff starts happening.

    This book were where I was still flopping at who done it.

    But I have a suspicions and it’s been there for a good part of this book so I am thinking its him.

    But I am not ruling anyone out. You just never know. But I have my page of suspects and he is number one. No I am not going to tell you who. :p But I will say he sure flies under the radar if it is him.. Hmm

    On to the Next!

    After reading the first book in this trilogy,

    , I was very excited to dive into this book. The serial killer plot spans the whole trilogy, the romances are the only things resolved in the individual books, so I couldn’t wait to see what came next. The first book was

    ! And the way it ended whetted my appetite to see what would become of Hope and how she and Remy would eventually hook up.

    If you’ve read the first book, you are probably familiar with Hope’s past. She was abused by her husband for years. Not just physical abuse, either. She was cut off from everyone and lived in a small town that worshipped her husband. Her attempts to tell the truth about him were ignored, and he was eventually able to convince everyone that she was mentally unbalanced. After trying to commit suicide to escape him, he manipulated the system and had her committed. She’s been free of him for two years, but she has still not recovered. Her best friend, Law, finally got her to quit running and come stay with him. But things got complicated in the last book and now no one is sure what Hope will do.

    This book picks up right after the first one left off. Hope is suspected of being behind the attack on Law and everyone thinks she tried to kill herself again. Remy is put in the uncomfortable situation of having to dig into her past to find out how disturbed she really is. He doesn’t think she’s guilty, but he’s afraid that his attraction to her might be clouding his judgment since the facts don’t support his belief. While working to find out the truth, he discovers more about her past and has to come to terms with how impossible a relationship between them might be. But the attraction between them won’t go away, regardless of any hesitation on their parts.

    Jumping into this book, I thought that we would spend a lot more time on the serial killer plotline than we did. It was still there in the background, but we didn’t get to see any further investigation on it or find out anything new. I found that really disappointing. This book was all about Hope, her past, and her mental state—both in the past and in the present. I found her interesting, and liked the slow building romance between her and Remy, but I found myself impatient at the same time. The lack of suspense made the book feel like it was dragging by the end.

    We had the development of a stalker pop up, which the serial killer got involved with, but it didn’t satisfy my craving for more development on the original storyline. I actually found it pretty unbelievable that the serial killer was tied into the stalker plot at all. I never understood

    the woman he wanted to protect was different from all the rest, and I ended up feeling like she was different only because the serial killer had to be tied into the story

    . I still found the story enjoyable to read, since I enjoy the way

    writes, but I don’t think I’m wrong in saying that this will be my least favorite of the trilogy. It felt like a bridge book and that was just not what I wanted or expected.

    Despite my issues with the book, I still enjoyed a lot of things about it. Hope, for one. The events of the last book were finally enough for her and instead of crumbling, she developed some steel. She finally gained strength and sass and started to recover from the abuse she had suffered. Remy was so nervous about spooking her that it was cute to watch him slowly try to woo her. I really enjoyed them together. I also liked seeing more development with Remy’s nephew, Brody. I felt bad for the kid and I hope that one day his dad will stop being a douche. I won’t hold my breath, though.

    For all you Ezra and Lena fans, there are some parts with them in this book too! There was a development at the end involving them that made me grin. Unfortunately, Law lost some of my admiration in this book. I’ve always loved his rock solid friendship with Hope and his devotion toward her, so it was like a bucket of cold water in my face to see that shaken. And for such a lame reason! Hope may have taken steps toward forgiving Law, but I’m still ticked. Hopefully he’ll convince me he’s not such a thoughtless little turd when I start reading his book.

    Once again, the author impressed me with her realistic characters and engaging writing. I may have been disappointed with the lack of development about the murders, but I guess that just means the author is saving it all up for the third book.

    This was the second book in a continuing series. I really liked the story but the first book was a much better read for me. It was more exciting and the Evil villain did all his wickedness in the first book. Oh we had a bad guy in this book too but the really evil one stood back and just watched everything happening. The heroine was a bit wimpy but I completely understand why she was that way. LOVED the hero but did not quite understand why he feel for the heroine at first sight. The heat was slow in coming on this book and the level of it was not as hot as most of Shiloh's other book's but it was there I just wished it would have been more.......

    I have this feeling book 3, If You Know her is going to be the icing on the cake. I can hardly wait to read what the evil villain will be up too and how they catch him. Thank goodness I only have to wait until 2/28 for book 3's release. At this point I have NO idea who the villain is other than he is right under our nose's.

    If You See Her by Shiloh Walker is book 2 in her Ash Trilogy, book 1 of which entitled If You Hear Her crept the bejesus out of me and introduced a whole lot of characters that certainly piqued my interest on more levels than one.

    If You See Her by Shiloh Walker is book 2 in her Ash Trilogy, book 1 of which entitled If You Hear Her crept the bejesus out of me and introduced a whole lot of characters that certainly piqued my interest on more levels than one.

    The small town of Ash, Kentucky with a population of 8,312 is rocked by the series of vicious murders happening in their own backyard. The whole town is shocked to say the least and the last round of violence in which Hope Carson is suspected to have beaten up her best friend Law Reilly and then nearly gone on to kill herself which shocks the District Attorney Remington Jennings (Remy) more than he lets on.

    From the moment Remy had laid eyes on Hope and her beautiful eyes filled with a fear and pain that pains him and makes every protective instinct within him want to embrace her and keep her safe, Remy knows that he wouldn’t have an easy time out of prosecuting the one woman who rouses the very primal instincts deep inside of him.

    Hope is a woman who has been on the run for the past 2 years from her ex-husband. Scared and jittery as she might be, the one thing Hope vows is to never return to her ex-husband because living in the darkness that had been their marriage with no way out of it is not an experience that Hope wants to repeat. Hope doesn’t want or need a man in her life, and the merest thought of even getting close to someone of the opposite sex leaves her with a bad taste in her mouth. But Remy, the man who nearly arrests her for a crime she is innocent of is the one man to whom she has a difficulty showing her indifferent side to.

    If You See Her is an installment in the series that contains very little of the elements of suspense that made book 1 such a hit towards the end. I missed the presence of the creepy killer and craved to know more about him because Shiloh has certainly done a swell job of creating his character, leaving the readers practically tied up in knots trying to guess as to who the killer could be. So needless to say, when the killer didn’t make much of an appearance in the story I felt cheated out just a bit.

    Rather than focusing on the suspense element, the novel delves deeper into the growing relationship between Hope and Remy and continues to reveal the different facets of the multitude of characters that bring this trilogy to life. There are family problems, there are problems between friends, and then there is the budding romance between Remy and Hope where Remy forces himself to tread very carefully in order to win a woman who has seen more than her fair share of violence and depravity.

    The moment I fell in love with Remy was a bizarre one. It was the moment that Remy let Hope take the lead role in emerging as an independent woman, a person who is more than capable of starting out on her own even if fear continues to walk right along with her on her quest to assert herself. It was how Remy went against his instincts and let Hope do her thing, let her be herself and let her come out of the shell she had hidden herself in to emerge as a woman who is breathtaking as she revels in the freedom that being with Remy brings her that I knew Remy was definitely the man for Hope.

    It is always a must to appreciate how Shiloh brings the passion between her characters to life, and I reveled in every minute of how Remy and Hope finds that special someone in each other and forges that deep connection with each other that made me just a teeny bit envious even as I rejoiced in their love.

    If the suspense element had been more, if the pace of the story had been just a tad faster, I would have definitely enjoyed this a lot lot more. But having said that, If You See Her is still a decent addition to a trilogy of which the last book I have already started on in my quest to get acquainted with the killer and finally find out who Shiloh has so masterfully created and hidden in plain sight so very well.

    Recommended for fans of the series and fans of Shiloh Walker.

    Hope was introduced in the first book of the trilogy and man she had such a brutal past. She spent a decade married to a monster who abused her physically and mentally and when she got the courage to leave, had her admitted to the psych ward. No-one believed her after all he was the town's golden boy and a cop and Hope almost lost herself. She got out two years ago but the the years have left scars, she isn't that confident and has fragility to her. She came to town because her only friend Law called her, he needed her help and wanted her close. So, Hope has been helping him as an author's assistant.

    In the last book both Hope and Law were attacked and an officer killed. All the evidence combined with Hope's past makes it look she is guilty. Remy, the DA talks to her ex who tells him she is manipulative as hell but he comes to see differently. I liked seeing how uncertain Remy was around her, he was attracted to her but afraid of what was between Law and Hope.

    Best of all I loved seeing Hope become stronger and regaining parts of herself, even if it was getting her hair cut, something her ex hated or speaking up for herself. It was not smooth sailing for her, she has flashbacks to her past and breaks down but still continues forward and I loved her romance with Remy, it seemed perfect.

    I also enjoyed seeing Ezra and Lena. We are also introduced to the heroine of the last book who pulls a gun on Law and Hope, thinking they killed her cousin Jolene. The sick serial killer is still around and takes care of her ex. I was sad to see what happened with the Sheriff.

    I am dying to read the next one to find out who the sick killer is.

    This is a really good addition to the series. The first book was still my favorite, but I think Hope and Remy's story is solid and suspenseful.

    I enjoyed this book as much as the first one. This one doesn't have as much with the suspense, which took a backseat to the romance, however, I enjoy that and had no problem with it at all.

    I have just started the third book and it has become clear there is a repetitive aspect, which is that each H fell instantly in love with the h when he saw her, which I do believe can happen ... well, lust that turns to love eventually ... however it is a tad unbelieveable that these women are so outstanding

    I enjoyed this book as much as the first one. This one doesn't have as much with the suspense, which took a backseat to the romance, however, I enjoy that and had no problem with it at all.

    I have just started the third book and it has become clear there is a repetitive aspect, which is that each H fell instantly in love with the h when he saw her, which I do believe can happen ... well, lust that turns to love eventually ... however it is a tad unbelieveable that these women are so outstanding that these apparently exceptionally good looking Hs would instantly fall head over heels and over-protectively in love with them. And in each book it was the H who was lovesick and saying "I love you," virtually within days of meeting the h, and first, with the h hesitant. Yeah, right....

    It's quite unbelievable and took away from the books for my part. I suppose I like a bit more growth in the romance, I prefer that the H have a believable attraction to the h and find compatibility and love with her over a reasonable time, and that just doesn't happen here. I don't need a reason for Hs and hs to fall in love, after all love is just an emotion that has no explanation as to who will fall in love with whom, however, for them to fall so hard, so fast, so unbelievably in each book got a bit ridiculous and I kind of had my eyes rolling (a lot). I've never seen any man in real life act that protective, except maybe a stalker, it was inordinately silly, I thought.

    Apart from that, in this book, I really liked the way the "mouse" h stood up for herself in the end and I liked the H and h together - just wish they'd had a more believeable romance.

    These three books run on from each other, they are almost like one book, but split in three with the three romances taking centre stage and the suspense part runs from book to book and is going to conclude in the third book. In this series, it is very important to read all three in order.

    I'm enjoying this series, even though I probably won't particularly remember it after I've finished. Nothing outstanding, not particularly memorable, but well-written and enjoyable.

    10%. That's how far I made it before the 15 different story lines made me give up. I heard great reviews about this, so I was excited to finally read it. But 5 pages after a conversation, we've touched on 3 different scenes with secondary characters and I've forgotten who or what happened 5 pages ago.
