Descripción

Shy, studious Irene Stenson and wild, privileged Pamela Webb had been the best of friends for one short high school summer. Their friendship ended the night Pamela dropped Irene off at home—and Irene walked in to discover her parents’ bodies on the kitchen floor. It was ruled a murder-suicide, and Irene fled Dunsley, determined to wipe out every memory attached to her northern California hometown. But now she has been summoned back.
Pamela’s e-mail had been short and cryptic. More alarming, it included the code word they had used as teenagers, suggesting an urgency and secrecy that puzzled Irene. What could be important enough to make her former friend get in touch after all these years? She won’t find out—at least not from Pamela, who lies dead in the luxurious home of her father, a U.S. senator, pill and liquor bottles beside her. The shock has barely subsided before the rumors begin to swirl.
Irene had planned to get out of this place as quickly as possible. But her reporter’s instinct—and her own hunger to know the truth—compel her to extend her stay at the local lodge. Even more compelling is the man who runs the place—a hazel-eyed ex-Marine who’s as used to giving orders as Irene is to ignoring them. Luke Danner can see the terrified young girl hidden beneath Irene Stenson’s black-clad, confident exterior—and he is intent on protecting her. But he is also driven by passions of his own, and together they will risk far more than local gossip to sort out what happened to Pamela Webb, and what really happened on that long-ago summer night.

    Irene Stenson and Pamela Webb had been great friends for one summer during their teen years. Their friendship ended the night Pamela dropped Irene off at home to discover her parents' bodies on the kitchen floor. Seen as a murder-suicide, Irene fled Dunsley, her California hometown determined to turn her back on every memory attached to it. But out of no where she gets an cryptic email from Pamela. It included the code word they had used as teenagers, suggesting an urgency and secrecy that puzzled Irene. Only to find Pamela, who lies dead with pill and liquor bottles beside her in the home of her father, a U.S. senator. Irene had planned to get out of this place as quickly as possible. But to know the truth - she decides to extend her stay at the local lodge. Even more compelling is the man who runs the place - a hazel-eyed ex-Marine who's as used to giving orders as Irene is to ignoring them. Luke Danner can see the terrified young girl hidden beneath Irene Stenson's black-clad, confident exterior - and he is intent on protecting her. But he is also driven by passions of his own, and together they will risk far more than local gossip to sort out what happened to Pamela Webb, and what really happened on that long-ago summer night.

    Audiobook - nice, smart mystery.
  • (2/5)
    While I'm normally a huge Jayne Krentz fan, this book fell short for me. Neither the hero or heroine were up to the usual high standards of the characters Krentz creates.

    Luke Danner is an ex-marine who runs the local lodge in town. When Irene, a small town news reporter comes back into town after receiving a cryptic message from her childhood friend Pamela Webb, she rents a room from Luke. Irene proceeds to try to uncover the mystery of her parents death, and Luke follows her every time she leaves the lodge. Irene even tries sneaking away with her car lights off, but Luke hears the engine and proceeds to follow after her. Luckily, his following her ends up helping her out, but the idea of an inn keeper following his sole female renter around town every time she leaves her cabin is a bit creepy for me.

    Irene, is not that much more desirable as a heroine. In the first romance scene, she recounts for Luke the number of psychologists she has been to and all of her problems in bed including her fake name for her vibrator. The whole romance was a little weak for me.

    The murder mystery was a bit creepy, and I am undecided whether it was good creepy or not. Over all, this book was readable, and light, but not a great read.

    The audio version was awful (unless you picture Luke as a 60 year old man, Irene as a squeaky reporter, and at least one character with a lisp).

    Overall, I'm a huge fan of Jayne Krentz (especially in her "Amanda Quick" books), but not a huge fan of this book

    Synopsis:
    As a teenager, Irene Stenson discovered her parents’ bodies following what the police believed to be a murder/suicide. Now she is back in her home town after an old friend sends a cryptic email offering new information. Soon the bodies are piling up and the secrets are unraveling, and the only one Irene can turn to for help is innkeeper and former marine, Luke Danner, who has some serious issues of his own.

    Review:
    A clever plot with some surprising twists and turns as well as a few laugh-out-loud moments. The underlying premise is original but it takes a little too long for the threads of the mystery to come together. Nevertheless, once they do, the story becomes engrossing and the resolution is neither obvious nor obscure.

    Krentz’s characterization and dialogue are excellent as always. Similar to most of her heroines, Irene is intelligent and independent. She copes well with her PTSD, doesn't wait around to be rescued and can handle herself in sticky situations. Luke is sensitive, caring and protective but secure enough to understand the he need not dominate Irene. Their relationship develops at a rapid but not inappropriate pace. However, it lacks the level of passion and intensity in another book of Krentz’s that I read recently, Sizzle and Burn.

    The secondary characters are also entertaining, especially Luke’s family. I particularly enjoyed the dynamic between Luke and his youngest brother, Jason as well as the various tidbits of information about the different townsfolk. It would have been nice if some of these had been better developed. The ultimate villain was not easy to guess as there is just the right number of red herrings to lead the reader astray but not create too much confusion – I was only able to work it out just in time.

    Overall, this is an entertaining read and I recommend it for lovers of Krentz’s books and fans of romantic suspense.

    I have had a funny relationship with Jayne Ann Krentz’s books over the years. I either love them, or hate them. All Night Long falls under the love them category. It was an excellent read. The plot was very strong. My attention was grabbed on the very first page and kept until the very last chapter. The twists and turns were unpredictable. I found the characters were well developed. There was also some humor added in, which really made this book fun to read.The only complaint I have with the book. I thought the romance was a little weak. But, it is a romantic suspense, so I guess that is ok.

    This was my first Jayne Ann Krentz, and I was quite pleased with it. I found myself picking it up even when I only had a few minutes to read, which is a very good sign that it kept me interested. I also found myself changing my mind about it while reading… There is a cat that JAK lets out of the bag a little early in the book, and I originally thought that was a mistake. However, that cat turns out to be a dog (you get my metaphor here, right?), so instead of a disappointing plot slip you find you’ve fallen victim to a very good red herring. Never would I have guessed the real reason for Pamela’s death. And there’s just the right amount of romance mixed in with the suspense as Luke and Irene find some stress relief in each other. The epilogue is a little too sappy for my tastes, but I guess she wanted to make sure everyone gets their happily ever after.

    I love Jayne Ann Krentz. She is an auto-read for me (I work in a public library so don't always have to purchase books to read them, lucky me!). Once her books come out in mmp I always try to purchase them (I don't collect hb's). I loved the whole premise of this book... Loved both Irene and Luke, the chemistry between them was very nice indeedy. I thought the whole idea of them being able to understand each other 'cos they both suffer from PTSD was great. It wasn't a focus of the book but it was developed in such a way as to help flesh out the characters. I love the fact that JAK lets her readers find out about her characters and plots without explaining every little nuance.The fear Irene feels throughout the story is realistic and well done. I liked the fact that she didn't become dependant on Luke to 'rescue' her and yet she wasn't all she-man either. Great characters, great plot, a refreshing re-read for me.

    Fast paced read, very entertaining and steamy.
  • (4/5)
    Pretty good, although one thing the heroine did toward the end verged on TSTL*, in my opinion. I always find that irritating. And for some reason during several parts of this story, I kept feeling like I was reading a Mary Higgins Clark book. Weird. But not bad for a romantic suspense story (non-paranormal type this time). B-.*TSTL = Too Stupid To Live

    When last Irene Stenson was in Dunster her parents had been killed in a horrific way that looked like a murder, homicide. Her friend Pamela Webb has enticed her back but dies the day she's supposed to meet with Irene. Irene is a successful reporter and this co-incidental death makes her curious. The owner of the motel she's staying at is Luke Danner a damaged ex-marine who's trying very hard to find a place in the world. This running a motel is not the first thing he's tried and his family are worried about his mental state. Irene's quest gets his interest too and they join forces to find the truth. When they become attracted is it just the thrill of the chase or something more permanent.A fun read. Pretty typical Jayne Ann Krentz, the mystery kept me reading and the romance had some interesting bumps along it's road.

    It's really hard for me to give one of JAK's books only three stars, but this was definitely not one of her best efforts. The suspense was so-so and the romance wasn't particularly exciting. It was believable (the romance, that is), which is more than many relationships in romances, but it wasn't very emotionally satisfying. As usual, the writing was good and the dialogue believable, which is about the only reason it got as high a rating as it did.
