I listened to this in audiobook format, over 11 hours.

A female cop surprises a thief and his cohort in the mansion along the shores of Lake Erie (one of the Great Lakes, anyway) she is housesitting, and ends up going on the run with him. As they run, she falls for him. Together, they must escape her "Uncle Nico," who is a mobbed up big-time bad guy with a posse of goons. Uncle Nico is good friends with her father, and took a special interest in her after she and her sister saw their mother murdered when they were kids.

This story went on way too long. There were so many things that didn't add up - her cop father is best buds with the head of a criminal organization? A head of a criminal organization asks a cop to house sit for him? The cop takes off with a thief she never met because she saw a photograph, instead of trusting the man she considers family? They take off in a boat on the Great Lakes in the midst of a massive, blinding winter storm - and ice isn't a problem? They hike through the North Woods with pajama pants on, and don't suffer massive frostbite? They're on the run for their lives, supposedly, in horrible conditions, yet all the two characters notice about each other is tits & round asses & lean bodies.

I wish I had realized when I started that this was romantic suspense, with a heavy emphasis on romantic. At one point, I told the narrator that if she said the word "tits" one more time, I was going to scream. And I did.

Cops and Robbers don't mix.

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. ( )

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?
