Searching for the truth…
Disgraced investigative journalist Pip West is devastated when she discovers her best friend’s body face-down in a tranquil lake. When cops and federal agents determine that her friend overdosed then drowned, Pip knows they’re mistaken and intends to prove it.
Special Agent Hunt Kincaid doesn’t trust journalists and has no patience for Pip’s delusions, especially since her meddling could reveal why the FBI is interested in her friend’s last days. The dead scientist worked at the cutting edge of vaccine research and might have a connection to a new, weaponized, vaccine-resistant anthrax strain that just hit the black market.
…just turned deadly.
Pip is thrown off her game by grief and her unexpected attraction to the handsome federal agent. Hunt battles the same unwelcome pull, determined to resist the heat that threatens to consume them both. But the more Pip digs, the closer she gets to both the sexy FBI agent, and to a bioweapons terrorist who’s more than capable of cold-bloodedly sacrificing anyone who gets in his way.

My Thoughts:

This author is very good with the romantic suspense genre.  She knows just what we need to be on the edge of our seats.  None of the books in the series need to be read before enjoying this one.  With this latest book, Ms. Anderson starts off with something that is very disturbing.  That’s the point where you’ll realize that you just have to know what’s around that unknown corner.

Hunt Kincaid has a job that’s about protecting all of us.  He’s at work on something that could potentially be true when you think of everything that’s been going on in the world lately.  Pippa “Pip” West’s new life isn’t off to a good start.  There’s just so much going on around these two that I got mad that I had to work that kept interrupting my reading.

The story doesn’t start off with any romance and that’s a good thing because we certainly wouldn’t expect anything like that in real life.  Hunt wasn’t very endearing at the beginning so to have a quick turnaround wouldn’t be believable.  And that’s one thing about how this author writes – her stories are very believable.  You also have to feel sorry for Pippa because she doesn’t seem to have much luck in her life.  The author’s very good at showing us her frustration as well.

I had lots of questions that left me no choice but to keep reading.  My problem is that I’m terrible at solving mysteries.  But that’s a good thing because it leaves me no choice but to follow the characters to see where they’ll lead me.  Plus if I ever did figure it out before the author was ready than I would probably lose interest. That’s something that I’ve never done with this author.  And she surprised me with this book by getting me to chuckle at the ending.  I can’t wait for more.
