Would you try another book from Kate Allenton and/or Tess Irondale?
Tess yes, Kate, I don't think so.
What was most disappointing about Kate Allenton’s story?
The behavior of the characters was unlikely - even annoying
Which character – as performed by Tess Irondale – was your favorite?
All the characters were good as performed by Tess. Unfortunately, good narration cannot improve the writing.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Veiled Set: Sophie Masterson/Dixon Security Series?
too hard to choose which part to cut since so many of them should have been edited ruthlessly

As to the first book:
It was a very good story in itself. I mean it did leave it open for another book but it certainly wasn’t a cliffhanger. So, you could read this and have a HEA or move forward to the opening the author left, or not.
I was surprised at who the killer was, rather the second killer, and he was slightly crazy. His reasons for killing were just insane. And he did get all that he deserved.
I did like the players: Jack and Sophie, Amber, Eileen and Max, Marshall, and Sophie’s guide Will. I was a little concerned about how the author had Sophie having kind of sexual feeling for Marshall while sleeping with Jack, and Marshall doesn’t hide the fact the he wants Sophie. This story turned out OK but I do hope Marshall finds a love interest. What I didn’t like about this was when Jack left her in the hospital and was gone for 2 weeks then came back and told Sophie how stupid he’d been. Really? It took him two whole weeks to figure that out? A day or two of missing her I can see but not 2 weeks. That was just silly.
There was some very explicit sex in the book and some swearing and the F-bomb was dropped around 20 times.
HALF the second book:
This is not for all the books because I couldn't read past half of the second book. It became a terrible romance.
When the last book ended Sophie and Jack said they love each other but I was still worried about Marshall's feelings for Sophie's and her's for him. Then in this book her house was bugged and she couldn't reach Jack so she called Marshall and he took her to his house and he told Sophie he broke up with his girlfriend because of Sophie, and Sophie told him she felt that "pull" towards him too. Even if nothing happens between them I just can't read a book where the hero or heroine have sexual feelings for someone else. That's not my idea of a good romance. It's good for some but not for me.
As to the narrator: She was not quite OK. Her voice for most of the men were fine but the voice she gave to the hero was just terrible. He sounded just like a 2-pack-a-day smoker, or maybe 3 packs. All I know was that his voice was terrible. She did whisper when the book called for it but nothing else. All she did was read the book.
