    1. This book obviously has a cliffhanger at the end of it . . . GRRR! However, I'm not certain which book is the next to read!?! I suppose I'll have to read it now just to satisfy my curiosity. One element I was pleased with on listening to this book is Jordan Buchanan appeared to be a nice match for Noah Clayborne, whom I first met in "Mercy." Unfortunately, Noah's "fall" into love was somewhat uneventful/anticlimatic and, truthfully, a bit boring! Not Garwood's best offering I'm afraid. Like most [...]


    2. Oct 2017 Series Reread and Review4 Bodies Are Dropping Stars!This book picks up after Slow Burn Dylan and Kate are getting married and merging the "Buchanan's & McKenna's" when a nutty history professor crashes the party claiming to be from the "McKenna clan" who's outraged that a McKenna would marry a blasted no good Buchanan!Turns out he is a Kate's youngest sister Isabel's History Professor who she accidentally invited to the weddinge thinks. Jordan Buchanan not wanting her BFF and her br [...]


    3. Loved it! Noah is so hot! Read this book and fall in love again. The character of Noah Clayborn is included in a couple other Garwood books, and you laugh at him there, but fall for him in this one. Jordan is a strong woman and a great example of todays woman. Give this one a try.


    4. No esperaba nada de este libro y nada me dio. Yo te amo Noah, de en serio lo hago, pero no era lo mejor que podías darme.Tal y como había adivinado con anterioridad, Noah se enamora de la hermana de su mejor amigo. Pero hay cosas que me hacen ruido:1. La atracción que sienten es absoluta y condenadamente repentina. En un momento, ambos está como siempre, y luego es como si se les encendiera un chip que los obligara a sentir atracción por el otro. 2. No he visto al Noah carismático, simpát [...]


    5. Jordan Buchanan, the ultimate computer nerd, attends yet another brother's wedding and is charged to keep an eye on her sister-in-law's nineteen-year-old sister who's practically doing back flips to gain the attention of Noah Clayborne, an FBI agent with a score list longer than the Good Book. Not that he's interested, he knows the girl is too young for him, but still, it's better to be safe than sorry.An uninvited guest crashed the party, a nutty professor that's been communicating with Isabel, [...]


    6. I've loved Noah for several books now, and just wanted more from his book. I don't feel like we really got to know him, or see much of his process.Still enjoyed it, but I wanted more.Re-read June 2017I think the problem is Noah has been built up so much over the last couple books, it is probably impossible to not be mildly disappointed when we finally get his book. I mean, there wasn't anything wrong with it, exactly - the plot was a good mystery, and there were parts that were absolutely hilar [...]


    7. This is book six in the Buchanan Series, and the one I have been waiting to read since I started this series. Noah Clayborne has been a recurring character in every book so far and I have fallen more in love with him as the books progressed. So when it finally came to his HEA I couldn't be happier to see that it was with Jordan, the little sister of his partner Nick Buchanan from Heartbreaker book 1 in the series, as well as all the other Buchanan boys who know just how Noah is. I loved the roma [...]


    8. Como siempre Julie Garwood en suspense no decepciona. Lo cierto es que la historia está bien construida y engancha desde la segunda parte del libro, que no desde la primera porque se me hizo algo pesada la introducción. Por otra parte, no reencuentro al Noah del libro de Nick, esperaba otra personalidad del personaje por lo que había leído en los libros anteriores, no obstante, no me ha defraudado el personaje.Jordan con su obsesión por la informática me ha gustado mucho, más creo que a l [...]


    9. Not enough Noah Clayborne, so for that I'm a little disappointed. I've been looking forward to his story from the start because he's a bit of thorn on the Buchanan brothers' side. And he appears in every books in the series so I thought he'd be more prominent in Shadow Dance because it is his story after all. But it doesn't feel like it his story mainly because his heroine is Jordan Buchanan. So when finally a Buchanan is the star in the series, I ended up not caring so much about the Buchanan. [...]


    10. Jordan Buchanan is thrilled that her brother and best friend are tying the knot. The wedding is a lavish affair - for the marriage of Dylan Buchanan and Kate MacKenna is no ordinary occasion. It represents the joining of two family dynasties. The ceremony and reception proceed without a hitch - until a crasher appears claiming to be a MacKenna guest. The disheveled and eccentric professor of medieval history warns that there's "bad blood" between the couple's clans, stemming from an ancient feud [...]


    11. Another thoroughly entertaining read from Julie Garwood. I wouldn't say it was deeply emotional but it was certainly interesting, funny and romantic enough to make it worth your while. There was great chemistry between the leads and I felt they genuinely liked each other.My only criticism would be that I would like to have seen Jordan's family's reaction to her falling in love with Noah (one of her older brother's good mates and FBI partner - but also a world class womaniser). What the brother's [...]


    12. Over all I though it was ok. I was a bit disappointed, It definitely felt incomplete.If you have a man-whore trigger this is not the book for you. That's not even my problem with it though.I think it either moved too slowly or too quickly. She spent pages and pages and small details, but when something big happened she would skip ahead to the next scene. I kind of want more of these characters though; I just wish the book had been longer.It's hard to say more without spoilers so I'll put the res [...]


    13. Love all of Garwood's books, be they CR or historicalBut I got to admit, I was expecting a little something more from Noah Clayborne:-) He had so much promise in all the other Buchanan books! I loved him in Shadow Dance, don't get me wrong, but it could have been a little better:-) 4 1/2 stars, just for that teeny missing element:-) Otherwise, a great read:-)


    14. 3.5 เรื่องความสัมพันธ์ระหว่างพระนางชอบมากๆนะกรี๊ดเลย แล้วจริงๆชอบคาแรคเตอร์ของโนอาห์มาตั้งแต่แรกแล้วด้วย แต่เสียอย่างเดียวเรื่องนี้ พล็อตเรื่องการสืบสวนสำหรับเรามันอ่อนไป ค [...]



    15. I've read this book three times now and this is definitely my favorite book in the whole world!! I love it so much.This book starts with Kate and Dylan's wedding. We already knew they were getting married (thanks to the previous book from this collection, Slow Burn). I think that's cute because Kate is Jordan's best friend and we can see a bit more of their relationship here. The wedding starts later than what it was supposed to thanks to Noah! He remains a womanizer, the same Noah we are used t [...]


    16. Author: Julie GarwoodFirst published: 2007Length: 336 pagesSetting: Small town contemporary - Serenity, TexasSex: Explicit towards the end. Not necessary for story More romance less sex would have been more appropriate for the characters.Hero: FBIHeroine: Recently sold a computer business for millions. Computer geek.That's it. I'm up-to-date on Garwood's Buchanan series. Read out of order but overall enjoyable. A definite change in style as the series progressed and some of the characters failed [...]


    17. I have nothing nice to say about this book. I don't ask for much from books, I just want to be entertained, and I usually understand why popular books are popular. This book was written by a best selling author and got okay reviews on this website. However, I can unequivocally say that this is the worst book I have read in years. In fact, this review already has a wider range of vocabulary than this book. Oh, except for her love of the word "voracious", which she must have just learned before wr [...]


    18. When this book first came out, it was the story we'd all been waiting for. We were first introduced to him in Heartbreaker as Nick Buchanan's partner, and saw him again in Mercy and Killjoy. The super sexy womanizer, FBI Special Agent Noah Clayborne, a descendant of Cole Clayborne from an earlier historical series, finally gets his own story.Jordan Buchanan is in Serenity, TX doing some research when she finds the body of the professor she's met with in the trunk of her car. Knowing she'd been s [...]


    19. I can't believe I haven't reviewed this book before, I am definitely missing some of these in my attempt to keep up with every book I've ever read. Anyway, this is one of my favorites in the Buchanan series, Jordan's story. The book opens with Jordan attending the wedding of her best friend to her brother. A slightly crazed looking man, Professor McKenna, breaks in and tells Jordan that her friend is making a mistake because their two families (he's a distant relative of the bride) have been feu [...]


    20. This is my all time favourite of Julie Garwood's books. Here's why:Noah is already an established character and after seeing him in nearly everyone of the previous novels in the series, those who have read those novels know him pretty well. He's a blase kind of guy, he's sexy as hell and he's a ladies man. Noah has said, on many occasions, he'd never fall in love and marry and actually calls Nick, John Paul, Alec and Theo for it and we finally see him fall in love with Jordan Buchanan. Jordan's [...]


    21. This is the best of the three Julie Garwoods I've read to date, but it too suffers from that same gaggy style of romance writing when it comes to love scenes. The story here, however, isn't bad. The concept is that computer software giant Jordan Buchanan crosses paths with an eccentric professor whose research implicates her Scottish ancestors in improbably negative ways. After meeting him at a family wedding, Jordan travels to a nowhereseville town where she is caught up in a series of murders, [...]


    22. The Buchanan family in modern times. I have read all the Buchanan series from 1 to 6 so far. It is fun to see how Julie Garwood keeps everything in historical order. Her book series all tie together in one way or another.Jordan meets an unusual man at her brother and friend's wedding. She and Noah, a friend, discuss her life as a "comfort zone". So she decides to go to Texas and meet with the unusual man who is a Professor. He gives her his research on the MacKenna family to copy and send home t [...]

    24. Good book. Not outstanding or something with a great "wow" factor, but a good solid book. It starts off a bit slow, as have several other Garwood books I've read, but the storyline picks up. For a romantic suspense that involves murder and mayhem, the book has a rather low-intensity, laid-back feel to it. It didn't keep me on my toes like other romantic suspenses I've read.The romance was decentI liked both Jordan and Noah; they had some passion between them, but I wasn't exactly feeling the "fo [...]


    25. Shadow Dance surrounds the life of a very laid-back protagonist who really hasn't done anything interesting in her life and seemingly did not intend to do so until she was provoked by her brother and his colleague. Though I find this book very interesting and somewhat funny, I also found it to be a tad bit too wacky and nonsensical. Some of the events that took place in this book were too unrealistic to properly fit the time, place and scene. As a reader, I found this somewhat irritating as I li [...]


    26. I did the audio on this and it was hilarious. The reader did such a great job. I was laughing so much. It was just a funny fluffy read and kind of cheesy. I liked the mystery part of this book. It reeled me in as it unfolded. My negative is the romance. I always hate deducting for something it says it clearly it is, ie: ROMANCE. But it so was hard to believe. And I think that is always my biggest complaint with romance. I will say though, that I liked the characters and the story. And I do plan [...]


    27. Exciting, riveting, breathtaking, heart pounding, these are just a few adjectives that describe how I felt while reading this book. After reading the previous book in the series, I was looking forward to going on and explosive up and down the ride, I was not disappointed. In this book, you will get to crisscross the country and be thoroughly entertained while doing it. It will make you be more careful, the next time you go to put something in the trunk of your vehicle. You will also get a greate [...]


    28. Entretenida y muy fácil de leer, la parte de intriga y misterio muy bien llevada . yo me esperaba más de la historia de Noah, que se profundizase más en la relación de pareja, como pasan de ser amigos, siendo ella la única mujer que no es FNC (fan de Noah) y él un mujeriego redomado, a estar locamente enamorados ¡¡ a que él deje de mirar mujeres de un segundo a otro!! o a que a nadie de su alrededor le extrañe que estén enamorados. En la parte romántica es dónde más cojea.


    29. I felt the spark was missing between Jordan and Noahoh well, the mystrey was kind of nice though a little predictable.I am giving it a 4 star rating because of the outlandish tales from the professor's research.
