review Due North #2

Best Books Due North #2 author GM Roge From the opening pages Misdirected is streamlined and focused than its preuel I could tell the basic direction of the story without knowing exactly what was going to happen which was good I really liked how determined Jake’s character was at the end of book 1 to stay and find out what happened to Madison and I looked forward to his return in this bookHowever Misdirected uickly falls into the same traps as book 1 Readers are hit over the head with repetitious information Many characters have the same habit of talking to themselves even when trying to snoop on others Both characters involved in prostitution are two dimensional and put their safety at risk the way seasoned sex workers never would Characters continuously overreact use language much older than their ages and change moods abruptlyI’m still confused about how I’m supposed to feel about Dane He’s often described as being dark twisted and a sociopath His actions back this up as his antisocial behaviors ramp up from book 1 But the way he talks to himself makes him seem immature and comical Almost every character who comes into contact with him trusts him even when they shouldn’t which doesn’t make him seem as powerful as he should Based on his evil impulses and follow through though it certainly created suspense I didn’t want him near the other characters because I didn’t know what he was going to doThis brings me to my favorite character of book 2 Deputy Doug Sanders I liked the sound of him and his back story with Dane from the start When I realized the story was going to partially follow him I was ecstatic Doug is the perfect antithesis to all the other characters He knows what Dane is capable of talks like a straight shooter and controls every scene he’s in I would read entire books about himI liked the ending of the book but the epilogue tied things up a little too neatly with the main characters for my taste I did appreciate how much GM Rogers was willing to put her characters through Some authors pull punches she doesn’t

It really helps me connect with the stor Well this was an improvement over the first Due North but still shows some flaws The characters seem to stabilize a bit the compass plays a clearer role and the writing style shows a little improvement The suspense builds without giving away what's going to happen There was even a bit of foreshadowing which I appreciated The sex scenes were at least better balanced with the rest of the story Still some plot elements that need fixing For example when Dane is hiding in Madison's shed the water is turned off But in the morning when he wakes up he gets a drink from the faucet I liked the twist at the end as to who kills the villain but how it comes about so that he doesn't get blamed for it is not plausible And the final chapter it's nice to have happily ever after but this one was a stretch

    A GOODREADS GIVEAWAYThis book surprised me Silly me I judged it by its coverand titleTake a gander at the cover It’s dark and has a compass pictured on it A compass a device suggesting a search of some sort perhapsAnd the title Due North Misdirected I fancied this title indicated some place far up well far up north like on the edge of the Arctic Circle maybeI opened the book expecting to read a yarn about he men masculine chest thumpers on a misguided because of a faulty compass? uest to discover the Northwest PassageB’ys was I surprisedThis book is about a narcissistic psychopath who kisses his biceps “Good Morning” messing with gullible young women in the vicinity of a place called Iron Bay When the story opens Dane the Psycho has already messed with Madison Reynold’s the book’s central characterAs a result of — as it used to be put delicately in days of yore — Dane’s “interference” erstwhile innocent Madison has changed has become cynical Sadly her father understands why his sweet daughter has changed “She was abused and dropped from a cliff That would probably harden you a bit”Dropped from a cliff for frig sakeDue North is a well written fast paced novel and while it isn’t a grand tale of high adventure in the far north it is certainly — despite the ugly nature of its actual story line — fun to readButReader Advisory A number of the characters Madison included say bad words so if you don’t want Granny to wash out your eyes with soap steer clear of Due North’s pages Instead search your bookshelves; there’s a chance you might find an entertaining volume about John Franklin’s lost expedition en route to the fabled Northwest PassageDue North Misdirected — a whiz bang readTruly

    I won this book from a contest on GoodreadsMadison Reynolds had lived through a horrific ordeal at the hands of Dane Buckman After Maddie's breakup with her boyfriend Jake she started seeing Dane But it took little time before she began to see how truly demented and twisted he really was He'd smack her around and sexually humiliate her and finally when he'd had enough of her he first killed her dog by dropping him to his death and then he did the same to Maddie But Maddie survived only to be told by the authorities while she was in her hospital bed that there was not enough evidence to prove Dane's guilt as it was his word against hers So she tried to pick up the pieces and move on with the help of her father William and her Aunt Sara and her best friend Lucy But then Jake walked back into her life and wanted her back After some resistance they were a couple again In the meantime Dane had continued on his path of destruction sure to leave no sign of any DNA for the police to get suspicious But as his hunger craved for victims to be tormented at his hands he began to get sloppy And it was because of this that he once again came across Madison and his final chance for her destructionA mind numbing story of how a person can turn out after being at the hands of their own flesh and blood since birth and sustain years years of physical mental verbal and emotional abuse A horrific account of sexual and physical abuse by a dominating and crazed monster

    25 to 3 starsI won this book as a Goodreads First Reads woo hooAs I said in my review of the first book in this duoTHIS IS NOT MY FAVORITE GENREI did read this book just as uickly as I read the first though Plot does pull you in and I had to know what happened next It did give me the heebie jeebies Aside from its creepy main character there were several editing errors and loose plot ends that weren't really explained well or glazed over because it wasn't an important detail that annoys me greatlyOverall it was just an ok read Creep factor was high but errors were annoying Think I may just stick with my happy smutty books

    received this book for free through Goodreads First ReadsI found this book simple and finished it within a day The plot followed the start of a serial killerrapist and his victims The characters were shallow made bafflingdumb decisions and I was not attached to any of them There was not a great deal of advanced world building and the ending was cheap and left me annoyed I wouldn't recommend this book to my friends
