The Best Kind of Lawman!
Eden St. Claire is a reporter. She's also reckless and seems to have a death wish. At least that's what Detective Cole Delaney accuses her of being. And, as she looks around the freezer with 8 other bodies, she wonders if he's correct about her. But, Cole's always there to protect her, right? At least she hopes so as she desperately tries to get herself down from the meat hook her hands are attached to. But, she's convinced that she's on the verge of catching the elusive Iceman serial killer.
Cole Delaney is worried, angry, and desperate to protect Eden. And, it's not just because he promised her brother that he would. He wants Eden in his life. He just needs to figure out how to convince her of that fact before she gets herself killed. But, in the meantime, they've got to catch a killer before he strikes again.
This is a fast paced and often intense murder mystery / suspense with some great characters who grow and learn from their past mistakes. Also, the romance is tender and well developed. There is one sex scene, but it's not graphic, which I appreciate. I also appreciated how the characters were honest and open with each other.
I also took note of the many references the author used toward cold, ice, freezing, etc. It helped tie the various elements of the story together.
Finally, I liked the ending. It was a good wrap up of the mystery as well as a lead in for the next book that will feature one of the secondary characters.
Romance - PG13 - Kissing and one brief, open door, non-graphic romance scene.
Language - PG / Clean
My rating - 5 stars.
I am a huge Anna J Stewart fan, but I'm not typically a romantic suspense reader. So, I was a little leery of reading outside my contemporary romance box. What a fool I've been! This book was fantastic; an exciting and interesting mixture of intrigue, friendship, love and an added mystery!
I'm not going to go into the plot...read the blurb. I'm not going to give away any of the plot or accidentally spill any spoilers. I will say it is part of a series and I cannot wait for the next book (why is May so far away?!)
Cole is sexy, romantic, brooding yet sweet. Eden is smart, maddening, brave yet foolish. Together they seem both perfect for each other and an unlikely Mach, all rolled into one! Together with a great cast of supporting characters, this story thrills and keeps you guessing. Like all her other books, this one by Ms Stewart does not disappoint. Even if it's outside your reading "box", do yourself a favor and at least download the sample. I'm sure you'll be clicking that buy button and won't be able to put it down!
