A Terrific Romantic Suspense!,
This review is from: His Witness To Evil (Kindle Edition)
His Witness To Evil is a real nail biter and I mean that literally. I should have worn gloves while reading. This fast-paced story with all of its twists and turns captured my attention from the start and held me riveted to the end. Both the central characters, FBI agent John Dolton and young nurse/divorced mother Stephanie Boyd, were so well fleshed out it felt as if I could sit down and have coffee with them, and I liked each of them-John for sure, very hot while still being appealingly male-but also Stephanie, which isn't always the case. She's a strong heroine, but not over the top beyond all possibility-a pet peeve of mine. Nor did the author rely on creating a bitchy female to provide conflict; there's plenty in the couple's past and present circumstances to assure plenty of roadblocks. The romance between them was palpable and convincing, the chemistry sizzled.
The secondary characters were also well crafted and supported the story. They weren't just along for the ride. As for the villain(s), chillingly realistic, but I definitely don't want to have coffee with them. I haven't read much romantic suspense, normally being drawn to historical, but I've seen plenty of movies in this genre and Evil's Witness would make a super movie. I really enjoyed this book and give it a high-five.
