Review


Quigg harkens back to the hard boiled gum shoes, a tenacious bulldog of a cop.... Suzannah is an upper crust girl who is clearly very used to having her own way. This gives the story an almost modern Noir feel.

"Holy cow - this was an AMAZING read! The twists and turns of this romantic suspense novel had me tied up in knots and hating to put this book aside to sleep!" --Marilyn Rondeau, ck2skwipsandkritiques

From the Author

I love writing romantic suspense with a tight focus on the hero and heroine. While I enjoy thrillers with a touch of romance, I really, really love when the romance is more central. Before I began writing, I cut my teeth on the likes of Anne Stuart, Linda Howard, and Tami Hoag. I thrilled to the power of the romance as much as the danger. As a writer, that's the kind of story I strive to deliver.

More About the Author

The tenth of eleven children, I had to do something to distinguish myself. That thing turned out to be writing.

One of the coolest things that ever happened to me was finalling in RWA's Golden Heart contest for unpublished romance writers in 2001. I went on to do it again in 2002 and 2003.

Another cool thing: winning the 2003 New Voice in Romance contest sponsored by Dorchester Publishing and Romantic Times Magazine. My contest-winning story went on to be published by Dorchester.

A *super* cool thing: the revolutionizing of reading habits by Kindle and other eReaders. That development allowed me to publish my romantic suspense stories that didn't quite fit for traditional publishers, but which have been very well received by readers. Yay, Amazon!

My newest cool thing? Being able to put "USA Today bestselling author" after my name.

I live in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, with my family, a Rotti-Shepherd cross (Rottherd? Sheprotti?) and a tuxedo cat.

You can find my romance website at http://norahwilsonwrites.com and my YA / Casters series (co-written with Heather Doherty) website at http://castersthebooks.com. And at long last, you can read about Dix Dodd's adventurs at www.dixdodd.com.

Sizzling chemistry and tingling suspense are combined in GUARDING SUZANNAH by Norah Wilson to make it the best romantic suspense I've read. I think this award-winning author has produced an edge of your seat beginning to a great series!

The Ice Princess is being stalked and she can't complain to the cops as she excels at taking them to pieces on the witness stand! Suzannah Phelps is one of the best defense attorneys in New Brunswick. Police Detective John Quigley admires Suzannah's skill in the courtroom and he just happens to be close when she discovers the latest bouquet of dead roses in her locked car. Although she doesn't ask for help, John's curiosity is stirred and he follows her to find out what is going on. The more John learns about this stubborn, bright woman, the more he wants to learn. He understands why she doesn't want to call for help, and as the situation escalates, he is determined to protect her from whomever is threatening her.

GUARDING SUZANNAH is a great romantic suspense story. Suzannah has the name of The Ice Princess for her demeanor in the courtroom and her ability to shred the evidence of most cases she defends. The descriptions of her in the courtroom are wonderfully written. The little asides and reactions from the onlookers have the reader cringing in anticipation of what's to come. It is so vividly written the reader can almost visualize the scene in their mind as it unfolds in print.

Enough background is given for Suzannah that all of her mannerisms and actions are completely understandable and in character. The logic in her arguments and discussions with John are fitting with her being a defense attorney. The character of John isn't written as an over-the-top alpha male, but as more of a caretaker personality.

I really enjoyed this book! I'm a real stickler for romantic suspense novels that have realistic characters and events, and this one totally worked for me.

Suzannah is a rich attorney who doesn't want to trust anyone, and Quigg (love the name!) realizes he has to protect her. Even though he first met her a few years earlier when she annihilated him in a courtroom, he does the right thing to go out of his way to protect her.

She's afraid to ask for police protection when a stalker comes after her because she has such a bad reputation with them--having faced them while defending alleged criminals, and having to try to tear apart the prosecution.

That's the setup, and the story flows from there. The way Wilson allows her characters to soften to each other, especially Suzanne, is poignant and emotional.

It seems that this is the first in a series...can't wait to check out the rest of them.

Guarding Suzannah is your garden variety Police Romance, Suzannah is from a wealthy background, sexually repressed and a very successful criminal defense lawyer that just happens to have a stalker that wants to get up close and personal in a deadly way. DT John Quiggley has secretly admired Suz from afar for 2yrs. When he decides to put a move on Suz he notices she is frighten by something in her car that she hides from him. He knows his girl and realizes it must be something bad to ruffle her feathers considering she has earned the nickname She-Rex by the local Police Dept for her tough cross examinations in court. Thus begins the dogged pursuit of Suz by Quigg as he tries to keep her out of harms way and enter into a cat and mouse game to capture her stalker.

I really enjoyed certain aspects of this book, the good first. The romance between an uptown ice princess and the downtown Columbo type cop was done extremely well. The author did not overdue Suz's prissiness and made her human by letting the reader experience her vulnerability. Also I loved how Quigg would not take her uppity BS and was not afraid to be himself and in the process showed Suz how much he cared for her. As far as I'm concerned Quigg was the star of this story, you just gotta love a guy that rescued an abused dog. Now the bad......the whole stalker thing was whacked. As I was reading how things played out in the capture of the stalker I kept thinking WTF. It totally took me out of the story as I tried to make sense of what went down. I also noticed only one time near the end of the book that Quigg talked to his Sergent. There was no type of chain of command clearance given to him so he could devote half of his police hours to Suz's case or what about when backup was called and a major stake out was used.

Guarding Suzannah was one of those books that is kind of heavy weather to get through. It doesn't exactly suck you in from the 1st chapter and you're not blown away by the romance and emotion of the book. That said, it's not a bad story or a boring read by any means, it's just not the most interesting romantic suspense you'll ever read.

John (Quigg) as a hero is pretty likeable if one-dimensional. Suzannah on the other hand isn't the most likeable heroine you'll ever read. The chemistry between them doesn't feel realistic but then again, neither does the plot. I didn't understand the character's motivations and behavior. Why did Quigg like Suzannah? Was the way he forced his way into being her bodyguard realistic? Would the cops really do all they did? This novel reads like a series of interesting, if implausible, events but not like a story that you buy into emotionally and are particularly rooting for the hero and heroine.

I bought this book and the next one about Ray and Grace and for that reason I'll read them. I'm not really enthused about the next book in the series based on reading this one but hopefully it will be better. In any case, like I've said, this one wasn't exactly bad, just a little lacking in emotional substance. I would categorize this book as more heavy on suspense than on romance with a moderate heat level.
