Pristine waters and purified evil.
Two by two, dark-haired beauties vanish only to reappear as hanging, plundered corpses. The Virgin Islands boast diamond-white beaches, lush green mountains, a rich cultural heritage—and a brutal killer.
Three years on the “Field-Dresser” case and Special Agent Nathan Brewer is days away from catching the bastard—if he can convince a certain brunette to trust him. Only the woman is more likely to take a casual stroll on the surface of the sun.
After fleeing her troubles in the United States for the quiet life of a school teacher on the island of Tortola, Madelyn Garrett never imagined she’d be fixated upon by pure evil.
In a fight for her life—with a dwindling number of friends—she must rely on her cunning and Nathan’s skills for survival.
Thank You Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with the digital copy for review.
It’s been awhile again since I have read a good Romantic Suspense novel so when the opportunity turned up to review a book that by all means was a romantic suspense – I was totally over it! 😀
“Trust isn’t a grand gesture, it’s small, nearly insignificant thing to the rest of the world, but to the person who deserves your trust… it’s everything.”
Madelyn Garrett is a simple woman – an English Teacher in the islands, all she wants is to live her life peacefully. But that peace is shattered when her best friend goes missing and it puts her on path of one very special Agent Nathan Brewer.
Now Agent Brewer has been on the trail of a vicious serial killer – a killer that he has tracked to the islands, but what he never expected was the temptation that Madelyn would be for him!
“No matter how well the truth is buried, no matter how secure the locks, it always finds a way to escape. Reality is relentless and so are we.”
It is very difficult to review a suspense – thriller book without leaving spoilers – but I am definitely going to try!
The serial killer aspect of the story is spot on! I loved the suspense, the kind of upheaval that the characters go through after finding out that there is a killer amongst them, that aspect was just perfect.
What I did not like was Madelyn and Nathan together. Don’t get me wrong, each of the characters were quite good and even identifiable, but only individually. Sadly, the romance between them seemed quite forced, i.e. as if the author had to get them together because they are the protagonists!
And I don’t believe that’s even the author’s fault! Nope, Madelyn and Nathan just weren’t right for each other. That’s the only part where this book failed me! Yet I still give this book 4 stars, because The suspense in this book was spot on that even me, who is able to predict killers quite easily, was unable to, at least till the end!
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
If you love serial killer books, read this one! It’s an amazingly written book! It has also made me want to read more romantic suspense books 😉
