I throughly enjoyed Chemical Attraction by Christina Thompson. While this book is categorized as a romance, it's really a thriller with strong romantic subplots as well as a strong science component about nanotech to fulfill the geek in me.

The descriptions of a small midwest town were excellent. Thompson enveloped me into the world she created and her pacing was excellent. I loved the opening scenes as they moved between all the characters and showed how they were interconnected.

Dr. Madeline Pierce and FBI Agent Joe Roberts have great chemistry as does the other couple Police officer Matt and his wife Eva (who is also Joe's sister.) My only real criticism is I got more emotionally involved in the relationship between Matt and Eva then the one between the protagonists. In a way, their romance seemed more real.

If you just go by the cover art, “Chemical Attraction” may seem like a steamy romance book. While it certainly has its fair share of romance between the two main characters, an FBI agent named Joe Roberts and a nanotech researcher named Madeline Pierce, it is much more than that. In case you couldn’t tell from those job descriptions, this book is something of a romance wrapped up in a crime drama. And Joe and Madeline aren’t the only couple spurring the story forward.

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.

Michigan author Christina Thompson earned a degree in biology from Nazareth College in Kalamazoo (her source of a love of science and a background into the physical realm of the body) and a diploma in Traditional Chinese acupuncture from Midwest College of Oriental Medicine (her source of influence that the mind and spirit affect the body in powerful ways). She is a retired acupuncturist who teaches at the Reflexions Plus Holistic Center on many topics including massage therapy, acupuncture, Feng Shui as well as other modalities of Chinese medicine. In addition she is the small business co-owner of Divine-ation Creations, which develops holistic products of self-discovery and universal awareness. She also writes novels that weave romance, mystery and suspense into her infrastructure of her fields of study.

The Chemical Reactions Series now numbers three novels, CHEMICAL ATTRACTION being Book 1 (she has also published THE TRUCKER'S CAT outside of this series but also a Romance Mystery novel). This being the initial volume it is of note to appraise her style, and the Prologue to CHEMICAL ATTRACTION shows how succinctly she can establish a tone for a mystery: `The barn's Mercury light and moonbeams streaming through the clouds outlined the lurking shadows. Huffing, the man lumbered along the edge of the cornfield. As he entered, damp leaves whacked his neck. In the humidity, his dress shirt and tan linen pants stuck to his girth as he loosened his tie. A spider web clung to his face. Picking at the nearly invisible threads, he heard a muffled noise and tried to calm his heavy breathing. The rustle of corn stalks closed in around him. "Who's there? Benny, is that you?" Hearing snaps of the stalks at his right, he ran crossways through the crop. The mud suctioned his dress shoes.

FBI Agent Joe Roberts has finally found that one person that completely changes his mind about love and romance. Problem is, she is partnered with him, as a mole for the company that she is working for. When Dr Madeline Price learns of a criminal network run through the medical facility that she works in, she is recruited to collect information for the FBI, to shut them down. Joe, along with Police Chief Matt Connor (and his wife / Joe's sister), are out to bring back their quiet little town to what it was before the meth labs took over. And boy, is this situation going to get methy.... Sorry.

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!
