Lori Lyn transports readers to the beautiful town of Port Angeles in this fabulous romantic suspense. I've been lucky enough to visit this lovely place and I swear with every word I was there yet again. I felt an instant connection with Abbey Rhoads and I admired her bravery for starting life over, alone and in a strange place. I was happy to see that she wasn't so young but rather mature and yet she still had her flaws. That she was far from perfect made it all the easier for me to feel invested in her and the hunt for the killer. Max was as easy to admire and I loved watching them dance around one another. I loved being able to follow along the investigation and feel thoroughly involved. I was fascinated with ever piece of evidence every second of the process and especially with every new twist or revelation. I enjoyed the feeling I get with a cozy mystery as I read this but the suspense and storyline had an added seriousness that I found fascinating. The relationships in this story were so authentic, I loved how everyone interacted with one another and that small town dynamics had so much influence on the personal and professional connections. If you are looking for a solid suspense I highly recommend you pick this one up.
Abbey Rhoads decides to retire from the FBI and move to the Pacific Northwest looking to have a life instead of just a career however before she even has time to settle in to her new job a serial killer threatens her adoptive home and she uses her forensic profiling skills to help the local law. As the number of victims climbs Abbey finds herself becoming attached to the case, her neighbors and especially her handyman but will the killer take everything from her?
Having two left feet may be the only thing keeping you alive in this town.
A serial killer is targeting residents of Port Angeles, the Mayberry equivalent of the Pacific Northwest, and leaving the corpses missing their right feet. Baffled local police seek the help of newly-retired FBI Forensic Profiler Abbey Rhoads. Despite hoping to distance herself from her prior career based in death, East Coast transplant Abbey welcomes the distraction from the hell of creating lesson plans for her new job - teaching snarky twenty-somethings’ at the local college - and from arguing with her sexy yet extremely opinionated home-renovation contractor, Max Edison. But her skills are put to the ultimate test when the bodies continue to pile up and one of them is the proven killer of the first six victims.
Now Abbey must figure out who has taken over for the dead murderer, while also figuring out how to fit into a small town, what the difference is between dating and just having sex, the bizarre thing called fashion, which precludes her from wearing any polyester for some strange reason, and finding where on earth she can get a serving of decent chili-cheese fries.
