GENRE: Romantic suspense, New adult
Transplanted California girl, Melanie Sullivan, vows to stay in Oregon until she nails the killer of her best friend, Dani. Mel’s ability to search a soul for innocence or guilt is a big plus. Her love for Billy the Kid, former Marine and now a detective with the 3 Peaks police department is also a factor in her decision. She’s not quite sure what’s going on with Billy. Has the PTSD from his Middle East deployments returned?
When a hate crime is committed in 3 Peaks, Mel is recruited by sexy Homeland Security agent, Mick, who requires her soul-reading ability. Mick doesn’t hide his feelings. He’s more than eager to step in if Billy steps out, a complication Mel doesn’t need or want. As she goes undercover, Mel embarks on a dangerous journey, aided by her Uncle Paco and devoted friends. Along the way, she learns a valuable lesson about the power of forgiveness.
I lean down to drop a chaste farewell kiss on his forehead. A split second later, I’m flat on my back, pinned to the bed and Billy the Kid grins down at me like a naughty little boy. He rips out his ear buds and pulls the cord free until the music washes over us. It’s a rock and roll tune, a blast from the past.
“Hey, baby,” he says. “Wanna dance?”
Before I can form an answer, I’m swept off the bed and twirled around until I’m dizzy and laughing uncontrollably.
He sets me on the floor and pulls me tight against his body. “You sneaking out on me, Minnie Mouse?
I manage a weak, breathless protest. “I’m supposed to meet Steve at 9:30 a.m. I need to get going.”
He cups my face between his palms and brushes his lips across mine. “You sure about that?”
“Well, um...” My body says bring it on. My brain chimes in, promptness is overrated.
This is my first book by this author and she did pretty good with this story. We get to meet a some interesting characters and I really enjoyed reading about them and getting to know them. Melanie is my favorite character and she was a great heroine.
This story was written very well the plot was interesting and the mystery kept me guessing.With just right amount of romance. A book that I couldn't put down.
Recommend to Romance Suspense readers.
