I requested several books for Christmas as I love having a full TBR locked and loader on my reader to start the year. I have been storing up some of my reviews to share over the next couple of weeks as I am going to be offline during the day-time with some offline projects and jaunts.
The first review is by USA Bestselling Romance Author Jacquie Biggar and her book The Beast Within (Mended Souls Book Two) a paranormal/suspense/thriller/romance.
Let me set the scene…. since this is the second book in the series the first being The Guardian which introduced Lucas Carmichael and Scott Anderson who had it all, money, fame, and fortune. But one night’s stupid mistake takes everything they thought they cherished and dumps it upside down.
About The Beast Within.
When Julie Crenshaw is offered a news reporter’s job on beautiful Vancouver Island she didn’t expect to land in the crosshairs of a serial killer.
Connor O’Rourke has seen his share of human depravities during his fourteen years as a homicide detective, but is still sickened by the murderer terrorizing his island shores.
And threatening his key witness. As the stakes rise, can two people get a second chance at love? Or will a killer become the winner?
My review of The Beast Within.
I am open minded about the existence of other worldly beings, and would love to think that there were a couple of guardian angels looking out for me and mine.
Julie Crenshaw needs all the help she can get as she is at risk from the very serial killer she is investigating for her paper. Still coming to terms with being widowed, Julie is fighting the temptation to be drawn into a new and complicated relationship with the good-looking lead detective, all the time being watched over by the husband she lost to a fatal car crash.
He in turn is at odds with the angel he has been partnered with, and who is responsible for the crash that killed him. They are supposed to be working together to get over their animosity, but there is a lot of work needed to achieve that.
Despite picking up the story in the second book, the author introduced the previous characters in a timely fashion which meant it was easy to get right into the plot as a stand alone thriller. From the middle of the book the story gathers pace, as Julie researches the possibility there is more to the killer than meets the eye, racing towards an exciting climax as the characters of this world and the next come together.
I will be reading more of this author’s books as there is certainly plenty to choose from across the romantic genre.
