Romancing the Novel

While I am an avid reader, I primarily stick to romances. I would say that my favorites are historical romances, but I love romance novels in every category.

Whisper of Warning - Laura Griffin 5 stars +++ I stayed up all night with this book, it was a very fast moving romantic suspense. I haven't read a book in a while that I was completely unable to put down to get some sleep. The characters were so well written and the story was believable that left you out on he edge.

The heroine, Courtney Glass, was not your typical h. She had a bad reputation, came off as a bimbo, but was a very strong character who was trying to pull her life together. She gets set up in the murder of her x-boyfriend that was supposed to look like a murder/suicide (hers) only she was able to escape the actual murderer, but it left her as the prime suspect for the murder.

The detectives on the case are Nathan Deveraux, who knows her from her sister and a past crime of hers, and the new new guy, Will Hodges. Both of them know instinctively that Courtney is not guilty, but the chief is pushing for her arrest. Courtney is keeping some secrets from them to try to protect her innocence in this case. She has a lot of guts and does some hunting for clues on her own. There is a lot of sexual tension between Courtney and Will and he becomes very protective of her. Things spin out of control for Courtney and after a night of passion with Will, she slips away with the help of Alex Lovell (the h from Untraceable) where no one will be able to track her.

I somehow am reading this authors books out of order {GASP} I should have read Thread of Fear first, but this book was completely fine as a stand alone. Also the first book I read by this author was Untraceable which was about one of the main characters in this book, Nathan Deveraux. I plan on gobbling up the rest of both series very soon.
