really good story about a cop and a robber who get mixed up with the mob and are on the run.. Mic is the cop and jason is the robber and they meet when he's attempting to rob the house that she is watching for her uncle who turns out to be a mobster. Good story, a lot of good suspense, though the ending was slightly weak. ( )

While house-sitting for her Uncle Nicco, policewoman Micayla Lange catches Jason Davis in the act of stealing money from her uncle's locked safe. When they both find incriminating photos that implicate Nicco in the murder of a city councilman, Mick and Jason hurtle into a race for their lives (LT Desc.).

This was an exciting, suspenseful novel through most of the story, but the ending fell flat. The suspense builds and builds and then everything is easily resolved in the last few pages. ( )

First book by Karen Robards, and it will not be my last. Sleepwalker is suspenseful, and sucked me in right from the beginning, an action thriller with some romantic touches. Overall, a very enjoyable read. ( )

Recently single Micayla Lange wouldn't even have been in her Uncle Nicco's house to catch Jason Davis's safecracking act if she hadn't already caught her boyfriend cheating on her. And she'd have arrested his admittedly fine hiney on the spot had he not uncovered a series of incredibly incriminating photos of Uncle Nicco at the same time. Unfortunately, her boyfriend cheated, Jason safecracked, and the photos spilled. Now Mick and Jason are on the run through the freezing drifts of a Michigan winter with heavy hitters from the mob hot on their tails.

Long on action, a bit short on believable plot. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. A police officer is in the wrong place at the wrong time when a house is staying in is robbed. This one event changes numerous lives and puts a cop and a thief on the same side of the law. Interesting characters. Good read. ( )

Book description
It's not that Micayla Lange is afraid of the clinking she hears coming from the first floor of the empty McMansion she's housesitting for her uncle Nicco. She's a cop, after all. It's just that finding out her boyfriend was cheating on her was enough drama for one night. Now she's alone on New Year's Eve, wearing flannel pajamas and wielding a Glock 22 as she zeroes in on the unmistakable source of the sound: Uncle Nicco's private office.

Jason Davis steals things for a living, so unexpected developments are a natural part of the job. Getting caught red-handed by a hot, pigtail-sporting police officer in what is supposed to be a gangster's deserted house is just one more twist in the game. Kind of like finding incriminating photos in Nicco Marino's safe, only to discover the cop -- and the security cameras -- have gotten a real good look at his face.

Unfortunately for Mick, she also got a good look at the damned pictures. Her "uncle" might love her like family, but if he knows she's seen evidence that implicates him in the murder of a city councilman, she doesn't like her chances. Which is why she's having a hard time reconciling her professional instincts with what she is rapidly concluding is an inescapable fact: She's about to help a criminal get away with a suitcase full of stolen money. And she's going with him.

Mick and Jason's race for their lives hurtles them through the dangerous Michigan wilderness on speedboat and snowmobile. As their adventure heats up and their enemies close in, Mick is torn between her duty to the force and the combustible passion engulfing her and her unlikely partner in crime. She'll have to turn Jason in sooner or later . . . if they survive. But will they ever get a second chance at love?
