Criminal psychologist Erin Larson's dreams of a successful
career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her own life in a
boating accident on Puget Sound and then learns that her mother tried to commit
suicide. She leaves her job as a criminal psychologist to care for her mother
in Montana. At least she is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on
solving missing persons cold cases.
Nathan Campbell's father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin's help to solve the case. She's good at what she does. The only problem? She's his ex.
As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted--and that the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.
The race is on for the truth in this gripping and complex tale of suspense, intrigue, and murder from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard.
Deadly Target by Elizabeth Goddard kept the action pumping with plenty of twists and turns that will keep readers guessing and flying through the story. The action was my favorite part. Goddard does a wonderful job at amping up the suspense for the heroine. She kept throwing her and the hero in tricking spots that readers will not see coming. Romance, of course, develops, but the story does focus more on the suspense than the romance, which is the way that romantic suspense should be written. The plot was unique and different. The moment of truth for the heroine was not something I have ever read before. It was thrown in, and I was a little shocked. Did not see that coming. If readers enjoy a good chase from the bad guys and want to know why, then this is a good story close to a cozy mystery with a little more edge to the plot. Overall, Deadly Target by Elizabeth Goddard was a delight to lose myself in. Romantic Suspense fans should pick up this novel.
I received a complimentary copy of Deadly Target by Elizabeth Goddard from Revell Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.
