Rylee Monroe, a dog walker in Charleston’s wealthiest neighborhood, never feared the streets at night. But now a thief is terrorizing the area and worse, someone seems to be targeting her.
Reporter Logan Woods is following the break-ins with the hope of publishing his coverage as a true crime book. The more he digs, the more he realizes this beguiling dog walker seems to be at the center of everything.
As danger draws them closer, Logan must choose: Chase the girl, the story, or plunge into the shadows after the villain who threatens everything?
She (Deeanne) brings the spark and he (J. Mark) brings the mystery. What a perfectly paired duo to produce the finest Christian romantic suspense that I have come across in a long time. This is a fast passed story that is steeped in intrigue and has a walk-in-closet full of family secrets that have come back to haunt with a vengeance.
The Southern setting and charm that permeates this book are intoxicating. Many of the character interactions are full of hilarity and charged with chemistry (the good and bad kind). Logan is a Southern gentleman and ace journalist who could have women swooning with the crook of his finger. Rylee defies the “damsel in distress” box that many other authors would stuff her into; instead, she gives just as good as she gets and holds no qualms telling people exactly what she is thinking, both with her tongue and her fists. Throw in a smooth talking attorney, a shady underworld boss, an arrogant know-it-all detective, and a few hyper dogs, and you are set for a wonderfully rich read.
