The White Carnation

Harvester Series, #1

Susanne Matthews presents a truly stunning suspense scenario with this story. The situation itself could be a main character but Faye and Rob hold their own in this powerful romance. Faye is definitely a hard umm nosed reporter and seeing her become a victim was compelling. I seemed to click with Rob instantly, after seeing his side of the break up I couldn’t help but feel for him. As the situation progressed I found myself being more and more drawn to his protective personality. Without giving too much detail away, the serial killer and his modus operandi are fascinating and scary as all heck. I couldn’t stop reading this book that was filled with so much evil and yet held so much hope as well. If you are a fan of any one or all of the following elements, journalistic suspense, estranged lovers, elusive serial killers, determined detectives or romantic suspense, this is a must read.

Reporter Faye Lewis has been disgraced and demoted and had her heart broken but she’s determined to become a successful investigative report one again. However, she never thought she’d become part of the story. Detective Rob Halliday never thought he’d see Faye again after she accused him of sabotaging her career but when a friend is murder he’s the first person she calls. Now his serial killer investigation crosses over in to her case can they capture a killer and the feelings they once shared?
