The Natchez Trace National Parkway stretches 444 miles from Nashville to Natchez, the oldest town on the Mississippi River. It's the perfect road for a relaxed pleasure drive. Unfortunately for park ranger Luke Fereday, lately it's being used to move drugs. Sent to Natchez to infiltrate the organization at the center of the drug ring, Luke arrives too late to a stakeout and discovers the body of his friend, park ranger John Danvers.
John's daughter Brooke is determined to investigate her father's murder, but things are more complicated than they first appear, and Brooke soon finds herself the target of a killer who will do anything to silence her. Luke will have his hands full keeping her safe. But who's going to keep him safe when he realizes he's falling--hard--for the daughter of the man he failed to save?
Award-winning author Patricia Bradley introduces you to a new series set in the sultry South that will have you wiping your brow and looking over your shoulder.
A drug deal gone bad is the basis for Patricia Bradley's newest novel Standoff. With plenty of action and a budding romance, Bradley grasps readers by the first chapter and doesn't let go until the climactic ending. The suspense is just right for fans of romantic suspense. The tension keeps escalating as the story progresses. The romance kept flittering between two main male characters until it reached its predictable ending. The story concept wasn't that original, but it didn't take away from me wanting to finish the story. Overall, Standoff by Patricia Bradley was an enjoyment for fans of romantic suspense. I think fans of her previous novels, Colleen Coble, or DiAnn Mills would enjoy this story.
I received a complimentary copy of Standoff by Patricia Bradley from Revell Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
