I love suspense novels. That excitement, tense action, the ability to go adventuring from the comforts of home…along with being able to take a breather every now and then, if needed…
I’ve read many of Irene Hannon’s previous books, and so I jumped for the chance to review this one!
The first one in the series, Dangerous Illusions, was an excellent read. This one could work well as a stand alone, but if you read the first one, you will remember some of the characters.
At first, I’d tried to get in the story, and it just didn’t grab me right away. But then…I really started getting into it…and I was somewhere close to the middle of this book when bedtime came. After tossing and turning for awhile, I knew I had to get up and finish reading this book!
Talk about action-packed, nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat suspense! Yes, it’s exciting alright!
Kristin is the main character, and I enjoyed getting to know her a bit better. After seeing her friend Colin find love, it seems like it is now her turn for a romance. I loved to see how she and Detective Luke Carter got to know each other.
But the mystery of this book – seemingly unrelated deaths are connected, by nothing else than her store. Danger, terrorists, murder, and much, much more!
I did have some serious suspicions about the direction this story was going to take, and I was pretty sure I had parts of the mystery solved well before the end…but I greatly enjoyed reading this book, and I look forward to reading the next in this series!
