SINS OF THE PAST : A ROMANTIC SUSPENSE NOVELLA COLLECTION
Secrets and lies. Danger that will never go away. Join three beloved masters of romantic suspense for novellas where the past will not stay buried.
Missing by Dee Henderson -- A Wyoming sheriff is called to Chicago when his elderly mother goes missing from her retirement community. Paired with a savvy Chicago cop, the two soon launch into a race against the clock when they realize something dark may lie at the heart of the disappearance.
Shadowed by Dani Pettrey -- Adventure, romance, and danger collide when a young Alaskan fisherman nets the body of a Russian open water swimming competitor. Another swimmer who'd been the dead woman's roommate years ago, is pulled into the search for answers as it grows more and more clear that something sinister is at play.
Blackout by Lynette Eason -- A young woman once implicated in a robbery gone wrong finds herself at risk years later when the real culprit is up for parole. The loot taken that night has never been found and he believes she knows where it's hidden -- only her memory of that night has always been unreliable. Can she remember enough to find her way to safety?
A trifecta of talented romantic suspense writers! Seriously, don't you just want to swoon at this lineup? And they don't disappoint. Three compelling novellas with a central theme of 'sins of the past'. Really interesting to see how each author interprets that and delivers a page-turning read in the process.
Missing by Dee Henderson -- A close look at meticulous police work. Love the way Henderson sets the force in motion Procedures and policy and heart. Police Chief John Graham is out of his jurisdiction upon his return to Chicago when his mother goes missing. Lieutenant Sharon Noble is in charge of the case but she's also sympathetic and willing to let him assist. Professional courtesy turns to respect and develops into friendship as they chase down clues. Henderson packs a lot of detail into this novella and I was on tenterhooks right to the end. Case solved and the hope of romance in the future. Sweet perfection.
Shadowed by Dani Pettrey -- Fans of the Alaskan Courage series be prepared to scream yourself hoarse when I let you into on a secret. There's a McKenna connection in this novella. You might say it's the beginning of it all. Ben and Libby's journey to romance is fraught with danger and intrigue in delicious Pettrey style. There's plenty of wilderness action and some near death experiences as they try to catch a murderer. Not to mention some toe-curling romance. An awesome combination for sure.
Blackout by Lynette Eason -- How's this for a spellbinding first line: "Macey Adams wished she could remember the sins that haunted her." Eason engaged my interest and kept it right to the end of this action-packed, cat-and-mouse suspense where danger lurks at every turn. Neighbour and police detective, Chad Latham is the perfect ally -- especially since he's been interested in getting to know Macey better for the two years they've lived next door to each other. Now he's beginning to understand why she has kept herself aloof from his advances. With the barriers down there's a chance for romance to flourish...as long as they can stay alive long enough!
