Publisher's Summary

Everything can change in a heartbeat.Hunter Roswell thought she had left her past behind. But her carefully structured world starts to fall apart when a serial killer connected to her past emerges from the shadows and begins stalking her. Already responsible for the deaths of five women, the killer now has Hunter firmly in his sights. And he's picked a target date - the night of October's full moon - also known as the blood moon or hunter's moon.

Sara Wilder, a psychologist and former FBI profiler, is brought in to help Hunter unravel the connection between her past and a ruthless killer. But as the search for the killer intensifies, both women find themselves struggling with an unexpected and undeniably mutual attraction. In a race against time, can they survive a killer who is willing to use anything - even love - to further his own agenda?

    "Better than I thought it would be"

    I found overall this audio book was much better than I was expecting. And an admirable job was done by the narrator.

    "Dreadful!"

    From a promising start, I have abandoned this book having suffered hours and hours waiting for the story to unfold. In the end I have determined that it is not a thriller at all, but a vehicle for a load of lesbians with men's names (Hunter, Adrian, Connor) to explore their relationships! Do readers (listeners) really need to know about putting the bread in a toaster? Oh dear - what a disappointment. Don't know who A.J Quinn is but I bet she's a lesbian with little else on her mind......

    "A difficult read"

    This book starts well and just has one convinced that it is going to be a really good mystery...Then the author seems to go off in a different direction altogether...I have tried to listen to it and stay interested four times now...but instead of keeping the love interest as a side issue, the plot itself seems to become secondary! I feel the author has an agenda here (To normalise lesbianism) I just wanted a mystery story and I confess descriptions of woman being sexually aroused by each other...just leaves me bored, it all sounds so contrived and unreal too. As ofcourse, now I have been forced to consider it, it must be!

    Story
    "Outsmarting the Serial Killer, Finding Romance"

    Hostage Moon is a mysterious, fun, and engaging investigative drama. I was hooked by the punchy prose, whip-smart plotting, and strong women characters.

    A successful, beautiful woman wakes in a dark alley in a pool of her own blood to learn that she is being toyed with and hunted by a serial killer from her past. She receives aid from an ex-FBI psychologist with problems of her own. The two find they have an undeniable mutual attraction. Will they be able to evade and catch the creepy psycho-villain, and find love at the same time?

    An entertaining listen.

    Story
    "Strong Beginning Wasted"

    I was entranced by the first half of this audiobook. This was despite the characters inside this selection; outside of Hunter; were thinly drawn. Unfortunately the story collapsed under the weight of plot contrivances in the second part of this work. In the true nature of the romance writer the romance moves at the glacial pace that reflected an earlier era rather than the hook-up culture of the modern era.
    In the end I can't recommend this selection. A.J. Quinn is a talented writer. However she needs to speed up the storyline if she is going to make a successful transition from Romance writer to the Mystery/ Thriller genre.

    Story
    "Quinn writes a good mystery and romance."
    Where does Hostage Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its up there with Radcylffe, Gerri Hill and Erik Schabach who write the best lesbian romance writers. To me Quinn's spinning of a great mystery in with a romance novel takes a lot of talent, Radcyliffe tells an action packed sort of mystery tell with her Honor series and a mystery/romance series with her Justice series, and she also mixes in a little mystery in some of her p-town series, which is what makes them great. Hill tells a great mystery/romance story with her Hunter series, Also her Devil's Rock and Keeper series. All are action packed but the romance is first with Hill. Erik tells a great action young adult lesbian sci-fi/ fantasy story with his Valkyrie series, I also really like his Drakkon series, And what I hope turns into a series with his Bridge Trolls story. All are wonderful. Still I think the best think he writes is his music of the soul series. Which is simple good with no mystery like in Quinn's story. Which is well written story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sarah,was my favorite, I liked they way she tried to be professional, yet knew she was falling for Hunter. I really liked the scene where they simply held hands in the club and left the club that way. It was a great scene.


    What does Bernadette Dunne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good reading, straight forward story telling, good inflection, good dramatic pauses, good changing of voice for character. Generally excellent a good story teller.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Serial killer after the one woman who got away, a love afraid between ex-FBI agent and tormented woman. (I have no idea how to sum this up for Hollywood but it would make a great film)


    Any additional comments?

    It's an excellent story, great drama, great mystery, Great romance, Great characters. Just really great writing. Want to read other books by this author, Have Show of Force (May have name wrong) But it was also Awesome!

    "AWFUL"
    What would have made Hostage Moon better?

    A better plot. More truthful advertising. Not a mystery but a lesbian love story.


    What could A. J. Quinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing. I would not have purchased it had I realized how poorly written it was.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernadette Dunne?

    Narrator was good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Just a love story advertised as mystery.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy it.

    "Lacking"

    I too was enticed by the beginning on the story but it quickly became mundane. Hunter was a character that I felt could have been developed into so much more. Sara was flat. Both characters were like able but neither made you want to go the extra mile. The pace of the romance was unrealistic and the backstory, felt contrived. I would give the author another shot because the premise of the book was good.

    for these people to be so smart why didn't they figure out he was going to take Sarah. And they didn't tell us what she said to the guy in jail and he said to her. Just left us hanging.

    "Excellent Narration"
    If you could sum up Hostage Moon in three words, what would they be?

    Too much sex, the story was great but I was not looking for a romance novel.


    Would you be willing to try another book from A. J. Quinn? Why or why not?

    Not if it is the same type of book


    Which character – as performed by Bernadette Dunne – was your favorite?

    All of them, she is fantastic


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    Not to spoil the book for others but some of the actions of the characters were so far fetched it ruined the book.
