Eva Connor, Joe’s sister, is married to police chief Matt Connor. Matt has to fight the growing number of meth labs in his town, but this eventually puts Eva at risk. Eventually, it surfaces that the intertwining cases being worked by Joe and Matt revolve around a new form of biological weaponry. Matt and Eva are essentially supporting characters in this story, but they do a lot to drive the plot forward and the story would definitely not be the same without them.
This book is very well-written, no matter which genre it is that draws readers in. The romances appear genuine between both couples, and the developed personalities of each of the characters helps to really drive this point home. As far as the suspense aspect is concerned, author Christina Thompson certainly knows what she is doing. The science sounds believable enough, and the story is filled with moments of intrigue that will drive the reader to keep turning the page.
There is also a fair bit of mystery in this book. Joe and Matt are trying to get to the bottom of a case that is not easily solved, and the reader is often lured into making assumptions that turn out not to be true. This is an important aspect of any well-written mystery, and this alone makes “Chemical Attraction” well worth the read. While this particular reviewer has not yet read the other two books in the series, this is likely to change in the near future.
There are two competing story types in this novel: Detective/Cop Thriller, and "Forbidden Love" Romance. For me, I came into this book looking for the former story type, and not as interested in the latter. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy romance stories, as both the main, and side stories. But I enjoyed this book as a thriller so much, that the romance part was a little bit of a distraction. If both halves were equally compelling to read, I wouldn't have a problem at all, and would gladly give this book 5 stars. The medical mystery that is the main focus of the book is excellent, and it was definitely worth the read, but I would have enjoyed it much more if the story wasn't sidetracked sporadically by the love stories.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a romance-thriller novel, this might not be exactly what you're looking for, but if you're looking for a thriller-romance novel, you should check this out! And yes, there is a difference between those two!
There is a strong and consistent balance of romance and thriller genres to reach a wide audience. Just when the drama and mystery aspect hits a climax (such as a killing or the introduction of a shady character), the novel switches momentum to focus on the backstory and relationships of the characters. This was a very clever way to break up the action sequences and make me want to keep reading.
One of the strongest aspects of this novel is that its main focus is the mystery, and the romance develops as a secondary sub-plot. This kept the cheesiness to a minimum and allowed me to focus more on the intrigue and suspense of the main, overarching storyline.
The plot is complex--secret agents in a small town working to uncover a potential meth epidemic that is causing mayhem in town--and the science aspects sometimes went over my head, but it is such a thrilling read that I honestly didn’t mind.
