BEGUILED by Deeanne Gist & J. Mark Bertrand

Rylee Monroe walks dogs for very wealthy people in Charleston. When break-ins begin occurring in her clients' homes and unusual items are taken and given as donations they soon suspect that the "Robin Hood burglar" might just be Rylee.

Logan Woods is a reporter for the paper. He's covering the "Robin Hood" story and wants to be the one who solves the case. He meets Rylee while trying to get some photos and the dog she's walking chases him through the park. They are both drawn to each other but she has trust issues and he's just not sure what he thinks of Rylee. As he continues to dig up facts about the story the pieces all seem to center around her. Is she trying to hide something from him? And is getting the story more important than his feelings for Rylee?

I really enjoyed Beguiled. It was what I would call a "cozy mystery". The story kept me turning pages from the beginning until the end. I wasn't really sure who the guilty party was until near the end. The characters were interesting and fun. Logan was a true-to-life hero. I liked his interaction with Rylee. Rylee was a very genuine person. She had lots of things from her past that she was dealing with but was still a kind and loving person. I would recommend this to those who like a cozy mystery with a dash of romance. Thank you Bethany house for providing me with a complimentary review copy.
