Bestselling author delivers romantic suspense where a US Marshall assigned to protect a federal judge finds that both her life--and his heart--are in danger. U.S. Marshal Jake Taylor has seen plenty of action during his years in law enforcement. But he'd rather go back to Iraq than face his next assignment: protection detail for federal judge Liz Michaels. His feelings toward Liz haven't warmed in the five years since she lost her husband--and Jake's best…

Characters are great again, but I am over  having a super criminal break from what they normally do so they can be caught.  There is no mystery here.  No suspense either.   You have a God's eye view of what is going on.   I think I am done reading her books, they so far have followed the same.  I wonder if she really wants to write romance novels but that field is too crowded.  Sorry thing is that she is really good at the romantic side, but the rest is blah.

When librarian Laura Griffin's sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a brief note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting ATF agent turned PI James "Dev" Devlin to help. But the deeper he digs, the more he begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And the closer he gets to uncovering the truth, the clearer…

1st half - Laura and Dev was nice but not the main story.  A lot more emphasis was on the run away kid Darcy and Mark.  Slow book, 40% done and the story feels like we should be 70%.  Afraid there is going to be a lot of useless scaring of the teen Darcy.  Reading a series of books where the PI's use blackberry phones and hold them while driving is funny.  Bluetooth is so normal for me this is interesting.

2nd half was better but I was right.  Just like the 1st book, to make it work the author had to have the great criminal do something out of character and not forced to bring the book to a conclusion.  So it fell apart at the end.

Reporter Moira Harrisons is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a confusing detour places her on a rural, wooded road, she's startled by the sudden appearance of a lone figure caught in the beam of her headlights. Though Moira jams on her brakes, the car careens across the wet pavement--and the solid thump against the side of the vehicle tells her she hit the person before she crashes into a tree on the…

It was good.   It was well laid out.  Days passed between paragraphs which made it realistic.  The slow uncovering was nice.  No trying to throw the audience off with weird stuff.  But with the way she did the story I don't think it would make sense with mis-directions.

Quick read.
