Contemporary Romantic Suspense


Josh Duvane has had his body and mind hardened by his SEAL training. Now he is a part of the FBI’s Underwater Search and Evidence Response Team and his latest investigation is pushing him to his limits. Josh recovers the victims of the Sandy Shore killer off the Florida coast as the killer taunts the local police. Casey Quinn is the only woman that has survived of those taken.

Josh is all that stands between her and certain death as the unrelenting psychopath stalks her every move. He now has to use every ounce of training to turn the tables and stop the killer from getting the last laugh.

This is another great book that is in a series that is proving to be amazing. The books pull the reader in and will have them wanting the next one right now. The characters and story lines are enough to pull the reader in and have them feeling like they are right there with the characters. It also keeps you guessing just who the killer is and how they are finding out what they know. This one takes the reader on a roller coaster ride that doesn’t end until the very end.

I give this one 5 red roses plus

The stories flow together very well and the best way to read the series is in order. The way the book ends is fantastic and will have readers hoping there might be more to come.
