Three Novellas from Bestselling Authors
How could I resist? Three novellas from three of my favorite romantic suspense authors—time to settle into a cozy chair and delve in. I was not disappointed.
In Dee Henderson's "Missing," a Wyoming sheriff is called to Chicago when his elderly mother goes missing. Paired with a savvy Chicago cop, the two realize her disappearance is no accident, and a race against the clock begins.
Dee Henderson held me captive from the first paragraph. His desperate search for his missing mother captured my heart, and as the tension amped, so did my pulse. The romance was understated but sweet, but the real story revolved around the disappearance of John Graham’s elderly mother. Fast-paced and realistic, this story fulfilled my expectations of excellence from the author.
Dani Pettrey returns to Alaska with "Shadowed," introducing readers to the parents of her beloved McKenna clan. Adventure, romance, and danger collide when a young fisherman nets the body of an open-water swimming competitor who may actually be a possible Russian defector.
Dani Pettrey’s Alaskan tale took me deep into the cold waters of the cold war. The era wasn’t made clear until later into the story, but that didn’t detract from the realism and anxiety-inducing plot. Competitive swimmer Libby and boat captain Ben are compelling as they’re forced to work together to find the killer before he finds them. Great pacing and exciting, as I’d hoped.
Lynette Eason's "Blackout" delivers the story of a woman once implicated in a robbery gone wrong. The loot has never been found--but her memory of that night has always been unreliable. Can she remember enough to find her way to safety when the true culprit comes after her?
Macey, a paramedic, and Chad, a homicide detective, are neighbours whose relationship had been casual at best. With good reason. Macey brings danger to whomever she cares about, and she doesn’t want to risk any more lives. The twists and turns in this story kept me up late, but it was worth it. Excellent!
Each of these three stories fits with the overall title, Sins of the Past, and exciting plots and well-developed characters earn this book five stars. Highly recommended.
