Temptation Creek is a romantic suspense to get caught up in.
Claire was loving and strong, while Jake was strong and caring.and a bit full of himself. But he got over that as the story unfolded. For the most part I liked how their relationship developed and I enjoyed their chemistry as they got to know each other. The romantic scenes were written well and they were exciting. I just thought they fell in love a bit too quick.
On the action side things were great. Plus I enjoyed all the small twists. I also liked the characterizations of Jake and Claire. Ms. Flynn brought it all to a conclusion in a great way. The mystery really kept me guessing. Plus the secondary character of Claire's mom was protective, feisty and caring. She was also Claire's friend. Oh and don't forget the villain.I won't give that away, but you have to find out who it is!
Overall it was a great suspense.
Claire Layton expects the usual busy Saturday night at Harvest Bistro to be killer on her stiletto shod feet. She never imagines there’d be an actual murderer on the loose at her restaurant in rural Dry Creek, Nebraska. But when she discovers a customer dead in a dumpster, the killer demands she find the victim’s phone and flash drive or face fatal consequences.
Jake Warrick, a cocky and mind-numbingly hot private investigator, becomes Claire’s unlikely ally in the search. Jake just wants to solve the case and get out of this hick town, but the diminutive and curvaceous Claire turns his plan upside down as they uncover a more complex crime than they ever imagined. The two bicker and banter like Tracy and Hepburn caught in a whirlwind of intense sexual attraction as they try to find the killer before it’s too late.
