Blind Betrayal

GIVEAWAY
MEHL, NANCY
BLIND BETRAYAL

U.S. Marshal is tasked with escorting a reporter to testify before a grand jury regarding a missing environmentalist. At first, the assignment seems routine. But when it becomes dangerously clear that there's more to the story than anyone knows, Casey and two other marshals -- one a man from her past -- will have to do whatever it takes to survive.

My Review:

A devour-in-one-gulp suspense.

Nancy Mehl fans will be thrilled to come across quite a few familiar faces in this gripping cat-and-mouse tale. It can totally be read as a standalone, but I got a kick out of recognizing multiple secondary characters in Blind Betrayal. (This is the third and final book in the Defenders of Justice series.)

Be prepared for lots of heart-stopping, gasp-out-loud moments. This fast-paced suspense doesn't let up until the very end. Just when you think the author is gifting you with a stop-and-take-a-breather-moment...well, she isn't, so keep your guard up. :-) And in the midst of all that tension and danger, two U.S. Marshals reconnect and try to figure out the hiccups in their past.

Casey's tough -- and so intent on proving that she can hold her own in this male dominated field that sometimes she can come across as defensive and testy. Especially when it comes to E.J.trying to be gallant which makes for some exciting sizzle. They used to be partners, as close as can be, and then life -- personal and professional -- imploded. Love these emotionally difficult reunion stories. Not that there's a lot of down time to examine something as 'mundane' as a relationship, but fitting snippets of grousing and remorse and funny memories as bullets are flying is an interesting way to play catch-up!

Clear your calendar for this one 'cause it's a frantic pager-turner of a read!

    1. Oooh -- that does look good. Something to keep in mind for a next Reader's Choice week! Enjoy your catchup -- my TBR pile is down to books I just picked up from the library and the LIs I got yesterday. Yikes! It makes me nervous when I let it get that low.

    1. Thanks so much, Loraine. The key to getting through your TBR pile is to not have many books in it to begin with. It's organized discipline! Good luck, Loraine!
