Calculated Risk

GIVEAWAY

WOODHAVEN, HEATHER
CALCULATED RISK

Clandestine cover-up

Accountant Victoria Hayes never would have thought discovering fraud in her office would put her life at risk. When her house catches fire, destroying the evidence she's collected, it seems the mastermind will do anything to keep Victoria from disclosing what she knows. Unsure what to do, she turns to her charming supervisor for help. But without much evidence, Jeff Tucker is reluctant to believe Victoria…until they both become suspects. Now they must work together to prove their innocence…and stay alive. With an unpredictable—and deadly—criminal after them, each step could be their last.

My Review:

Fantastic debut novel!!! Nonstop action, quirky humour, and a slow-simmering romance make this a page-turning read. And Woodhaven really fleshes out realistic backstory on both characters which she reveals in stages. Makes some of Victoria and Jeff's actions totally understandable even if they are still infuriating. There's enough plot twists to steal a reader's breath away with alarming frequency and I loved that the author surprised me in unexpected ways. I'd be certain something was a bad idea -- and it was, but not for the reason I thought. My head is still spinning over this cleverly pieced together suspense.
