    This is the conclusion of the Blood series trilogy and I enjoyed this book more than the others in this series.It is set in a small town Serenade , Tennessee where bodies are piling up and SCU team is led by Miranda Bishop . But the team might be hunting more than one killer as there is a sniper targeting the team too .Will the SCU team be able to catch up with the killers before they take out one of them ?I would suggest reading the books in order in this series as there a lot of characters int [...]

    Oh my, what a conclusion!The Blood trilogy has been somewhat unique from the start, focusing on an unusual amount of SCU agents in one book and having a plot that ties all three books really closely together. Which, in my opinion, is the absolute best. And Blood Ties takes that to the next level. Rather than bringing in new characters that would end up being unnecessary (see: Blood Sins), it takes on old ones and lays the perfect trap for them. It was kinda like watching an episode of Criminal M [...]

    I liked the whole paranormal section of the FBI figuring out the murders and some of the suspense. The middle of the book was just way too much of talking on the same thing and not moving forward. The end was quite interesting and it led to the idea of another book coming.

    I snagged this one from the library right before I left for vacation, and while I realized it was part of a series, what I didn't realize was that it was book 12 Unfortunately this meant that it was a little hard to keep up despite the author's best efforts, and it left me floundering at times trying to keep the vast number of characters and their powers and their relationships straight while still trying to keep up with the main storyline.That said, the mystery and suspense was beautifully pace [...]

    seven forty pee em the 9th of february 2018, fridayed. good read, three stars, i liked it, kindle, library loaner. truth be told, i almost put it downwas a bit hard to get intodidn't really look at any syllabus, description before taking it on loan at the digital library, liked the cover, it was available, none of that "hold" stuff this timede cast of characters is like a dream team ofi guess, not f.b.i. they're s.c.u. most if not all of them have some sort of other-world ability, telepaths, med [...]

    Sorry but Blood Ties sounded too monotone and rambling. I felt like there were too many characters and no main characters to focus on. I've read some of previous books from this series but I still felt very confused by the storyline and all those characters. Every capable author of continuing series should be able to write books that a new reader can pick up even in the middle of the series, and enjoy. Perhaps enjoy so much that she/he wants to go back and read the series right from the beginnin [...]

    To those of you that really, really don't like change, I apologise. (something expert bloggers say I should never do - but it feels right) For this month only, as we focus on 'chick lit', the reviews will follow the 'chick lit check list'. 1. fiction that, often humourously, explores issues of modern womanhood There is some, rather dark, humour from time to time in the novel. It is a tricky thing to insert humour into a story about a serial killer torturing and well killing people to taunt the [...]

    I picked this up randomly at the library for my commute, popped in a CD, and just couldn't do it.I'm generally pretty good at getting used to the narrator's voices, for one thing, but this was just not good. The women (from the FBI's Special Crimes Unit) all spoke like they were ten-year-old girls with these breathy, high-pitched voices that instantly grated on my nerves.In the opening scene, a grotesquely mistreated corpse is discovered, and then, a few pages later, another grotesquely mistrea [...]

    Another Kay Hooper book, another installment in the Bishop series. I think her latest books have all been connected to one another and I wouldn't suggest reading this one without reading the others. Although the back blurb only mentions Holly I felt Diana was as much a main character here. And since they are both recurring characters I really enjoyed seeing them find center stage in this story.Hooper does manage to keep the suspense going on two fronts. Who has been trying to harm Bishop and his [...]

    Kay Hooper has been one of my favourite authors from her first category romance - and I still have all her books and still re-read them (especially the Hagen series). I have just re-read the whole Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series up to "Blood Sins" so I could remember all the characters before I read the last two books of the series - currently.Kay Hooper just gets better and better. "Blood Sins" and "Blood Ties" are probably the best of the series, although they are all good reads if you like [...]

    3 of 3. Better than Blood Dreams. About the same level as Blood Sins. However, I'm putting paid to this series. The ending puts the whole kibosh on this series. I like to read suspense/thriller fiction; but I'd like a little less reality with it please. I don't want to walk away from a book feeling like I just watched a couple days worth of local and national news -- depressing, violent stories with tragedy and little hope.So, yeah. Blood Ties was a good story. Just a really sad chapter in the B [...]

    This was not one of the better books in this series, mostly because it tried to do something I normally love, pulling in previous characters and events, and didn't succeed. I don't consider it a good sign when the author has to put in foot notes relating to the book where the previous action or people first appeared, I did like the appendix in the end where it was more spelled out.This book was both a filler and one that cleared up a lot of major story lines, but with the large cast of character [...]

    This in the end turned out to be a pretty good book. I felt there was alot of info dump at first. This book was more about the team as a whole. We did get resolution to two couple's relationship which was light, light romance. This also isn't a book you can pick up and read. On some of these past references even I felt lost and had to struggle to remember these books. There are footnotes of the books these references came from. I has a sad though about one event in the book and wish KH could hav [...]

    Having special abilities isn't always a positive thing.

    Blood Ties concludes the Blood trilogy with Hollis Templeton as our front stage and center main character. Throughout the entire Blood trilogy, I don't deny that I felt Hollis's presence much more so than the other official main characters of both Blood Dreams and Blood Sins--though it's not to say that the previous two books didn't focus properly on the main story, conflict, and characters.Even though Hollis has kind of "lurked" in the background, I couldn't help but feel like this entire trilo [...]

    Another installment in the Bishop files, this one finds the team still trying to clean up the case from the previous book. Excellent twists to keep the story vibrant and entertaining to keep you interested in the series. As always the author has develops great characters and an intriguing plot to keep you turning pages.

    AndI've officially lost interest in this series. Though the torture scene was brief and not overly detailed, it's not for me. The kicker? When you find out the identity of the mystery man, and I have no idea who he is. None. Even after Googling it.

    I love this author! I thought I had read all her books, so was very excited when I saw this one! Had to excuse myself from a family gathering for a couple hours because I couldn't stay up any later the night before to finish it!

    Keri
    This is such a phenomenal series! I have enjoyed all of the books that I've read in the series! I love when a book makes me have a reaction out loud or gives me goosebumps. I love the newly added footnotes telling readers in what previous books an event happened.

    Three stars because it took two hundred pages before this story took off for me and I don't wait that long before giving up, but this was Kay HooperNumber 12 in the Bishop/SCU/ FBI series. The Unit is tracking a serial killer in the small town called Serenade, Tennessee.

    Christine Howard
    Third book in the trilogy the SCU with Bishop investigating finds out who has been out to destroy the unit. His efforts bring unexpected consequences.

    Karley
    it wasn't bad but it got really long and confusing

    Kem
    Really scary. Some of the scary is a little "out there", but it holds the attention. There is some light vague romance and the ending is really sad. There wasn't clear closure, like what came about with the Father? I like this series and I've missed a few before this one. I need to catch up.

    2013: I re-read this book that I originally read in 2010 because it's the third in a trilogy within the Bishop Special Crimes Unit series, and originally, I'd not read the first two. Now I finally went and read the first two of the trilogy, and this one, all in a row. SO GOOD! I LOVE this series and this trilogy was the best one yet! She is running slow on writing new ones. of the next trilogy should have been out by now, but only the first book was JUST released, and i heard it's not as good. w [...]

    Another solid effort by Hooper in the Bishop Special Crimes Unit series. This series combines two of the things that will grab my interest everytime - serial killer profilers and paranormal abilities.First off, while most of the Bishop SCU books will stand on their own, this book is very much a follow up of the previous book Blood Sins, and because there are numerous references to what came before and that are connected to what's happening now [I can't say much more without including spoilers!] [...]

    I've been a fan of Kay Hooper's writing for more than a decade, since I first read Stealing Shadows. The Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series is written in a series of trilogies, with minor characters of one trilogy spinning off to be main characters in another. The books in the three prior trilogies easily stood on their own. This one, however, does not. If you have not read the entire series, you'll be lost here. The plot relies heavily on information and cases from past books. This is so prevale [...]

    Confused GenreThis review is from: Blood Ties (Blood Trilogy) (Audio CD)This is somewhat of a murder thriller, but crosses the border into Sci Fi. I do not recommend this book, though the basic story line is somewhat intriguing, with the Special Crimes Unit under attack from a sniper.But much of the book is given over to a confused metaphysic that detracts and wanders. The author attempts to weave an intrigue of wonder and mystery with an atmosphere of psychic drama, exploring unseen evil powers [...]
