Vines of Entanglement

GIVEAWAY

CARTER, LISA
VINES OF ENTANGLEMENT

No matter how fast you run, the past has a way of catching up with you.

A tangled web of lies characterizes the life Laura Mabry has built for herself and her son after the tragic death of her husband. But Laura’s carefully constructed world slides off its axis when she stumbles upon the body of a young college student on the recreational trails of Raleigh’s Greenway. What’s worse, Detective Jon Locklear is Laura’s worst nightmare...and her dream come true.

Jon has spent years trying to forget Laura. Past experience has taught him that he can’t trust her, but old habits—like old loves—die hard. When the killer turns his attention on Laura, Jon may be the only one who can save her.

Truth and murder lurk just around the corner for Laura. Can she find the courage to face her deepest fears and unravel the lies of her past before she and her son become the Greenway Killer’s next victims.

My Review:

If romantic suspense was an art form, Lisa Carter would be one of the Masters. There's just as much suspense in the romance as there is in...well...the suspense. This author knows how to weave a story rich in characterization and plot development. I hung on every single word. And I love the way she teased me with tidbits of information, allowing time for me to come to my own conclusions. Then when that particular plot thread was fully revealed I could cheer with giddy delight because I got it right or sit there slack-jawed, astounded that I could be so wrong.

A solid inspirational thread anchors both the romance and the suspense. Ageless truths so hard to understand and personally apply. I grew and stretched right along with Laura. The triumph of love and friendship along with the complication of  messy relationships and way too many hidden lies make this a riveting read that was impossible to put down.  A definite must read for the discerning romantic suspense lover.
