Travis Walker has been battling dark urges since the day Juliet Prince kidnapped his six-year-old daughter four months ago. Although Kate was returned safely, the woman responsible vanished.
When their attempts to find her keep coming up empty, Travis let his need for retribution consume him and it nearly cost him his relationship with his family. Thanks to help from Gage and Kylie, Travis came back from the brink and passed the case back where it belonged: with the Off the Books Task Force.
What they don’t know is that, despite their best efforts and repeated failures to find her, Juliet doesn’t intend to run forever. She’s coming back to Coyote Ridge to settle the score once and for all. And this time, she intends to bring Travis to his knees by taking what means the most to him.
When the unthinkable happens, Travis’s need for vengeance is renewed and he will move heaven and earth to avenge his family.
Edge of Your Seat Goodness!!
OMG!! What can I say except that this book, Alibi, is by far Nicole Edwards best book yet!! Wow!! I am still reeling from everything that happened in this book. Nicole Edwards basically ripped my heart completely out in this book, and then she slowly, but surely stitched it back together again. What a ride Alibi was from the moment the book began. I don't believe I have ever cried so hard before while reading a book. Yes, people, this one is not for reading while at work or anywhere you don't want people to see you bawling like a baby, because you will bawl like a baby. There were so many times while reading this book that I did not want to continue because I could not believe what had just happened, but at the same time I had to continue reading because I could not believe what had just happened. Wow!! This one is powerful and so well written.
Alibi picks up right where Deadly Coincidence left off, so, although each book comes to a complete conclusion at the end, there is still a main storyline running through them that requires you to read the four books before this one. Plus, why wouldn't you want to since this series is beyond excellent. Brantley, Reese and the rest of the "task force" are still on the hunt for Juliet Prince , who has and continues to wreck havoc in Travis Walker's life, but continues to elude the team. And it is the search and the ramifications of not finding her fast enough that makes Alibi such a great read. You will not put it down once you start!
If you are looking for a fast-paced, suspense riddled series that also is hot and steamy, and brings together characters from at least 4 four of Nicole Edwards prior books then the Off the Books series is the one for you. Nicole Edwards truly is a masterful storyteller. The way she weaved all of these stories together while still keeping the main storyline of the Off the Books series together is nothing short of amazing. She is at her absolute best in Alibi. I am still trying to wrap my head around all of the events that occurred in this one even though I finished the book. Alibi was simply amazing. I cannot wait to read what is next in store for Brantley Walker and the team, because there is definitely more in store for them. I'm looking at you Reese, Trey, Magnus, and Baz!! Bravo, Nicole Edwards!! Bravo!!
This book takes you on an emotional roller coaster. As much as I loved the book, (spoiler) I am very sad that Kylie had to died. Kylie, Travis and Gage are my favorite Walker characters and with her dead it will be another story that just consist of just M/M book. It seems to me that lately your books are more about relationships between men, which is fine, but I still hope to see more books about relationships between men and women.
Best book yet by Nicole Edwards, but I’m a bit mad at her right now
I’m going to try really hard not to give you any spoilers, so forgive me if I’m a bit vague. This is the 5th book in the Off the Books series, and the reader absolutely needs to read them in order. It helps to have read all the books regarding the huge Walker clan, but mostly that just helps put all the players in perspective. However, I would also make sure I had read Travis from the Alluring Indulgence series as well. This book was well-crafted, and it builds on the foreshadowing from the earlier books in the series. As usual, Edwards continues to develop the relationships between Brantley and Reese, as well as the developing romantic relationships between various members of the Task Force. She continues to develop the storyline which initially started in Book 1 of the series. I cannot really discuss the direction the story takes without giving things away, but I will say that as fantastic as this book was, I hated it as much as I loved it. Remember how you felt when Dumbledore is killed at the end of the sixth Harry Potter novel? Expect the same level of shock and dismay and feelings of betrayal. This novel displays a level of emotion and depth of character that isn’t needed in some of her other series, such as The Office Intrigue series. Part of that comes from her investment in the characters we keep revisiting, a different approach to writing one novel for each member of a family or social group before moving down to the next candidate on the list. It is impossible to write quality fiction about a group of characters over time without continually evolving those characters and their relationships with each other. The other part comes from the events that occur in this particular novel. It is not possible to handle the subject manner in the same way one would write a story about twins who want to woo and marry the same woman. It may take me a little while to forgive Edwards, but it won’t prevent me from anxiously awaiting Book 6. I am voluntarily leaving this unbiased review after reading a complementary advanced copy of the novel.
