UNLOCKING FEAR by Kennedy Layne is NOW available! Romantic suspense lovers do not want to miss getting their hands on this one!

check out my review for this heart pounding book today!!

A chance mishap with a sledgehammer was the sole reason a chilling nightmare was unleashed in Blyth Lake.

Noah Kendall’s grisly discovery left him in the middle of a murder investigation and a neighbor who knew more than she was willing to say. Reese Woodward had returned to town with dark secrets, and he was determined to unravel them. While evil lurks in the darkness, seduction burns between them…only time was their enemy.

Will her secrets destroy what they’ve built, or can he earn her trust before the killer strikes again?

Here. This is the blurb that you – that’s how the author reels you in this new series that she is gifting to her readers; but she keeps you reeled in with the characters and the sheer talent of the author! 

Noah Kendall is back in his home town; a decision jointly taken with his siblings, a thinly veiled attempt to look after their father after his mother’s death 3 years ago.

Reese Woodward is on a semi – vacation; mostly because she is on a mission to connect her cousin’s disappearance to the one that happened in Noah’s hometown around the same time.

When Noah and Reese connect with each other, both platonically at first and then romantically; it then all hell breaks loose.

The plot moves at a steady pace; there’s no lagging in between and it pretty much serves up the twists and turns that hooks you and keeps you invested the story! The mystery is pretty much all the readers can think about, sometimes so much so that it overwhelmed the romance between Noah & Reese.

I am not going to deny; the chemistry and the connection between Noah and Resse is implosive and palpable – but I do wish that they had been given enough time to establish the foundation of their relationship so that when they expressed their love for each other. 

But the mystery isn’t resolved at the end of this book, in fact the reader is left with more questions than answers at the end, and it’s my hope that even though the next book is about another Kendall sibling; I am still hoping that a little more insight will be given into Noah and Reese’s relationship, just to see how it is after their HEA!
