Deadly Texas Rose by Lenora Worth Love Inspired Suspense #85 – Jan 08
I really like this author’s books – both the Love Inspired and the LI Suspense. In this book, Julia Daniels brings her daughter to small town Texas for safety but it seems like they’ve been followed. Someone wants Julia even to abduct her at gunpoint in front of witnesses in broad daylight in a diner right across the street from the sheriff’s office. Now that’s desperate.
The gunman is desperate enough to shoot Eric Butler when he, as deputy sheriff, tries to interfere. Eric realizes this isn’t a normal robbery and begins the investigation to find out who and why someone is after Julia.
What I especially like about this book was that I guessed a third of the way through what the bad guys were after – well not exactly, but sort of – you know?
The author dropped enough red herrings along the way, however, that although my guess was a bit off, the conclusion was very satisfying.
Heat Level: Affectionate (kissing and hand holding but nothing more)
My Rating: Great! – 4 ½ stars (a keeper)
