Another great book by DiAnn Mills will keep readers guessing and turning the pages well past their bedtime.
FBI agent Tori Templeton is going up against one of her hardest cases, proving that one of her best friends did not kill her own husband. When she gets the call that oil and gas tycoon Nathan Moore was found dead in his home, she goes to investigate. He had been receiving death threats and recently had a bomb go off at one of his rigs. It is soon discovered that he was in fact murdered. His wife is at the top of the suspect list, along with several others. Tori is assigned to a task force to find the killer along with recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. Together they dig into the past of people they both cared about in order to discover the truth; but the more they dig, the more secrets they uncover and the more danger they find themselves in.
I always like reading a DiAnn Mills novel. It is a good clean mystery that I know I am going to enjoy. The story here was good with several twists that kept me guessing until the end. I liked that both Tori and Cole had to face the challenge of being connected to the victim and still be objective enough to do their job. Mills did a great job of weaving doubt and suspicion onto several different characters making me question if they could be the guilty party. I liked the oil and gas setting in Texas, I grew up in an oil town so this was easy for me to relate to. I did question a few of the actions of several characters. Some of them just didn’t seem to fit with what I thought they should actually do in those situations. Not enough for me to make more out of it than this slight mention, probably something that just bugged me and others might not even notice. This was definitely an enjoyable read and one I will be recommending to fans of romantic suspense by a great author.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
