Avery North is a detective in Atlanta, Georgia. She was investigating
the death of an unidentified girl when they find another young girl
dead. They discover that both girls have a tattoo on their shoulder of a
magnolia. Because of that they suspect it's the work of a serial
killer. Jackson Bryant is the medical examiner who is trying to help
Avery solve the crimes. In trying to answer questions, Jackson discovers
evidence that sends the case in another direction. One that was quite
unexpected. As Avery and Jackson work together they also discover their
relationship is much more than just a working one. Both have suffered
deep pain and aren't sure they want to put their hearts on the line
again. Can they put their trust in the only one who is unchangeable,
even in the most painful changing moments?
Dangerous Passage was
overall a good romantic suspense. It started off strong and pulls the
reader in but I must admit that it seemed to lag a little in the middle.
The last half of the book things started to pick up and the last
quarter was especially good. There was a particular twist along the way
that I didn't expect and was very surprised by it. You'll have to read
the book to find out what it is. I enjoyed the characters. Avery was
strong and capable but struggling with several things in her life.
Jackson was a great guy. As a couple, they blended well together
although I didn't fully feel the chemistry between them. They don't
really spend a lot of time together which may be why I felt that way. I
did enjoy the secondary characters. Avery's father and her partner,
Mitch, in particular. I appreciated the message that God doesn't change.
He is always the same no matter what we believe and no matter what
happens. I also appreciated the author's note at the end. Although this
story had a conclusion, there are some unanswered questions that I'm
guessing will be explored in Book 2, Fatal Exchange, due out in Summer
2014. It's one that I plan on reading.
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.
