I love Amy's books and I can't wait for the next one!

I loved the way Ms. Clipston introduced amazing conflict into the story, while making Reese and Lacey (the heroine) work together for the common good.

It was hard to put this book down, especially with each new twist that came about!

This book is the first book by Amy Clipston that I have had the pleasure of reading. And I must be honest and tell you that I am not a big racing fan, but I absolutely LOVED Amy's book, Betrayed. So much so that I am anxiously awaiting a second racing series book to be released!

This is kind of a romantic mystery with a bit of humor mixed in. Set in my wonderful home state of North Carolina, Amy tells the story of Lacey, the young daughter of a Nascar team owner, who has loved the driver of one team car from afar for as long as she can remember. But while she's away at college in Maryland, tragedy strikes-her father and stepmother both meet death in a fatal 1 car accident....but was it truly an accident?

Reese has known Lacey since the day she was born. She's like a kid sister to him. So when news of her father's accident reaches him, he's determined to be there for her. But she's not making it easy. In trying to convince Lacey that she can trust him he finds himself seeing her as a gorgeous woman, not just his "squirt" and he's falling her. So what's he to do when she tells him she thinks her parents' accident isn't an accident and someone he's close to may be guilty?

Will Lacey accept his proposal and together they can find the betrayer? Or will she just move on and try to buy his share of her father's company?

Amy has the power to keep you with the story from the first line. She mixes humor, mystery and romance in a way that will never bore you! It was hard to put this book down, especially with each new twist that came about! I recommend Amy's Betrayed to Nascar fans, romance lovers, and mystery seekers because she combines all three in this novel and takes you on a ride you don't want to miss!

Betrayed! That was how Lacey felt, when just eight short months after her father's remarriage, he and her stepmother were killed in a horrible accident. Then at the reading of the will, she was outraged and hurt that her father had left his racing company to her and Reese.

Reese, the most gorgeous and sexy man that Lacey had ever laid eyes on. However, she had known him since they were babies, their dads were best friends, and he had worked his way up to a driver on the team. Now she had to share "her" racing company with him. Oh the problem was not that she did not like Reese, it was that she did like him. Way too much!!

Zipping home for a short visit, from college, after her dad's death, Lacey discovers that something is seriously amiss! Things have been moved around in her house, Carl, Reese's dad and her father's best friend is acting downright weird. Something is not right, and she turns to Reese to help her figure it out.

Working together they will solve this mystery. But will Lacey's heart survive? Will Reese betray her trust?

A well written novel, Amy Clipston has once again shown her great talent. However as a fan of her Christian fiction, I was disappointed that this was not in that same genre. There was mild language and sexual innuendos, that did not add to the story line at all. 257 pages[...]

This book is very, very good! It kept me in the dark almost to the end as to what had happened. I think this is a wonderful book, even if you are not a race car fan! I wish there could be a sequel to this one, I would love to re-visit these characters a couple of years down the road!!!

Lacey Fowler's world is turned upside down when her dad and step-mom are killed in a car crash. But something doesn't sound right about the accident. She also finds some major money being drained from her dad's racing company. She finds out too, her father's will leaves his portion of the company to be split equally between her and Reese Mitchell, a winning driver for racing company. Lacey has always been in love with Reese so when it's suggested that they marry to gain control of the company and find out the truth, she reluctantly agrees. The guilty party is not happy about the marriage or the fact they're looking for answers. Will they figure it out in time? And what will happen to their marriage of convenience?

This was a good NASCAR tale. I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this story. I truly felt engaged as a reader from beginning to end. I could see why Reese and Lacey were reluctant to give their hearts to each other. Especially Lacey because of Reese's reputation of being a ladies-man. But I also felt like some of her thinking and reactions were unrealistic, especially because she had known him all her life. I might also make mention that although this author writes good Amish Christian stories, this tale would not be considered in that category.
