House of The Hanging Jade by Amy M. Reade

Synopsis :

A dark presence had invaded the Jorgensens' house. On a spectacular bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, something evil is watching and waiting . . .

Tired of the cold winters in Washington, D.C. and disturbed by her increasingly obsessive boyfriend, Kailani Kanaka savors her move back to her native Big Island of Hawaii. She also finds a new job as personal chef for the Jorgensen family. The gentle caress of the Hawaiian trade winds, the soft sigh of the swaying palm trees, and the stunning blue waters of the Pacific lull her into a sense of calm at the House of Hanging Jade--an idyll that quickly fades as it becomes apparent that dark secrets lurk within her new home. Furtive whispers in the night, a terrifying shark attack, and the discovery of a dead body leave Kailani shaken and afraid. But it's the unexpected appearance of her ex-boyfriend, tracking her every move and demanding she return to him, that has her fearing for her life . . .


This is what I say :

I didn't buy this book. I read it as an e-copy and it took me 2 days.  I read it thinking that it's a horror story.  It is not.  I'ts more like a suspense romantic thriller but it wasn't very suspenseful and neither was it very romantic and thrilling.  It's a rather lukewarm in many ways.

The focus of the story is Kailani and the family she is working for as a personal chef.  I was quite bored with her character and it wasn't difficult to guess what was going to happen next.  I wasn't very impressed by the writing as well.  It wasn't that bad but unfortunately the story line and content was not able to contribute at all to zest up the book.

Sorry to say this but I wont be recommending this title to anyone at all.
