Kathy Clark’s 23 romance novels have sold over 3 million copies in more than 10 languages and have been on the New York Times’ bestsellers’ list and won numerous awards. In September 2012 she launched a new suspense series, Denver After Dark centered on three brothers, one a cop, one a firefighter and one a paramedic. The first book, After Midnight has been named the Best Indie Suspense of 2013 and won a prestigious 2013 Readers’ Favorite Suspense Award. Cries in the Night is Book #2 and Deep Night, Book #3 will be released in Fall, 2014. Also in 2012 Kathy teamed up with her husband Bob Wernly to write a Young Adult Time Travel Mystery/Romance series called CUL8R (See You Later) under the pen name of Bob Kat. Book #1 OMG (Oh My God), when they go back to 1966 to save a girl’s life, was named as the Best Indie Young Adult Suspense of 2013 and was a Beverly Hills Book Awards finalist. Book #2 BRB (Be Right Back), when they travel back to 1980 won First Place in the Readers’ Favorite Young Adult Awards 2013.

All four books in this series have received rave reviews and 4 and 5 star ratings. Kathy and Bob also wrote a fictionalized version of his fraternity days at Kent State University in 1970 that mixes the drama of senior year with the first military draft lottery, the Vietnam war and the Kent State shootings. This novel was named as a finalist in the Best Indie Mainstream Book of 2013 Awards. Kathy and Bob's New Adult series is called Scandals with the first book Due Dates released in November, 2013 and the second book Killer Date scheduled for Summer, 2014.

Killeen is doing great in college. She's the star of the softball team, makes good grades and is beautiful with a wonderful boyfriend Brandon. Everything is perfect until she informs Brandon she's pregnant and his response is to leave for Paris. Killeen isn't sure what to do next when Harlan an attorney from Austin shows up. Turns out, she has two brothers and two sisters from a country music father she never knew the identity of. He recently died and instructed his attorney to contact each heir and give them their inheritance. He also left instructions for them to have the opportunity to work at Scandals the PI agency he formed which he named after his old band. Killeen's new siblings are great, but they quickly realize their dad was killed and someone wants them to die next. Things heat up between Killeen and Chris, the manager of Scandals. She knows she needs to tell him about the baby, but she never seems to have the courage. There's a bomb, attempted hit and runs, attempted kidnapping, poison and ex boyfriends.

I enjoyed this story. It started out a little slow, but picks up once all the kids finally meet each other. All of them are named after the city their parents met while their dad was touring: Killeen, Reno, Dallas, Tulsa and Liberty. Chris is a nice guy and you'll find yourself pulling for he and Killeen to be together while they try and track down the truth about their father. The next book in this series will be about Reno with appearances from the other siblings now all working at Scandals.

Superb book! The premise is one I've not experienced previously, and it is so very well handled. Each of Roger's children is his/her own person ... no duplication of personalities to make the reader say, "Ho hum, seen that before." The pace is excellent, and the heat between Christopher and Killeen is very well depicted ... the tension is palpable, their feelings for each other and their growing passion simply sparkles. I also read a teaser for the second book, and appreciate how book #2 picks up exactly where book #1 left off...and there is NO cliffhanger. Excellent! I have now added Kathy Clark to my favorite writers list. I will be purchasing more of her titles because I know I'll be in for a good read.

One country singer, 5 young adults, and one PI business equals a very good book. Roger had been a typical hot, young, country music star. A tour every summer, lots of drinking, drugs and unprotected sex. He had 5 children, they did not know he existed but he had kept tabs on them their entire life. When he died of a drug overdose this attorney brought the kids, who were now in their 20 to Roger's house and told them who they were and the terms of his will. He wanted the children to co-own his private investigation firm, Scandals, and work with the current manager, Christopher.

In addition to introducing us to the whole messed up family the book centers on his daughter, Killeen. When the book opens she has just discovered she is going to have a baby the baby's daddy had told her it was her problem to "get rid" of it and left for Europe.

Roger's attorney arrives, has her take a DNA test, sends her a plane ticket and $5,000. She goes to Austin, meets the brothers and sisters she did not know she had and has to make decisions regarding the baby and becoming part owner of Scandals.

I enjoyed this book and plan to read the other books in the series.

Well written detailed story with rich characters you want to get to know. As soon as I finished I went looking for the second book to buy. This is a stand alone novel but you will want to see about the other characters story in the next books. JIR

Fantastic I could not put it down. It is now 5 AM and I have just finished. I have to get my daughter up for school in an hour. Oh well this story was worth it. Siblings meeting and forming that special bond and risking all to save another. Well worth the read. Can't wait to read the next one.

There are just some books that click from the beginning until the end. I think the beginning was a little weak, but as the story continued, it became better and better. Loved the characters and looking forward to reading the next.

To find an unknown family. To become friends. To work together

I quickly fell into the story and couldn't stop reading until I'd finished the entire thing. It isn't often I'm completely drawn into a story, as if I were living each moment with the characters, but Ms. Clark pulled it off.
