Serena Hopkins likes her job as medical examiner, but when she's called
out to the scene of a murder, she not only discovers that the victim was
a fellow classmate but the killer's MO looks hauntingly familiar.
Dominic Allen, FBI agent assigned to the case, remembers Serena as the
little girl who was his sister's friend. But Dominic discovers she not a
little girl anymore, she's turned into a beautiful woman and he and
Serena experience an immediate attraction. There's a killer on the loose
and they must work together to figure out who it is before he strikes
again. The secret Serena's keeping has put her next on killer's list.
Can she trust Dominic enough to tell him the secret and can Dominic keep
her from ending up as another victim?
This is 337 pages of
high-octane suspense. So be prepared! You'll be turning pages like
nobody's business while frequently looking over your shoulder! (Did you
hear that noise?) I mean, you're dealing with a serial killer and, I've
got to tell you, this author nailed the creepiness of that really well. I
enjoyed the interaction between Serena and Dominic. Serena was a woman
of inner strength. Dominic was a wonderful hero, strong yet gentle. They
had a history together and it was great watching the development of
there relationship. When the Heart Stops picks up about three weeks
after "When the Smoke Clears" (a book I also recommend) so you'll
definitely want to read this series in order. This story has a
conclusion but also leaves you with unsolved issues that I'm sure will
be solved in the final installment. Now I'm looking forward to reading
"When a Secret Kills".
I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
