About the Author

Lynn Stookes was born and raised in the amazing state of Texas, where she currently resides with her husband of four years. They have one son and two furry children, who create complete chaos she couldn’t live without. One day, Lynn took her passion (maybe obsession is more apt) for romance books and mystery shows to write her first romantic suspense novel, Fatal Obsession, Book 1 in the Harden Series. In her free time, Lynn enjoys reading anything she can get her hands on, spending time with her family and friends, coffee breaks, and country music. She is currently working on Sawyer and Dani’s story, the second novel in the Harden Series

First things first, don't let my review put you off!!
I did actually find the majority of the story line page turningly good. There's drama, passion, anticipation the odd of bit comedy....all the things you like to see in a good romance mystery thriller type.
Characterisation is spot on. We get to see all their little traits and everyone is an individual in their own rights. Often times one character or another kind of gets left in the background, but not in this book.
The first few chapters and the last couple really had me gripped. I actually very nearly threw my tablet across the room right at the beginning of the epilogue! I just wasn't sure I could handle the pressure of turning the page to see what had happened!
My biggest problem with this book is in the writing style and editing. I found the structure very rhythmical. Some parts were like reading an instruction manual, other parts were worded the way I'd expect new readers books to be. Blake sat on the bed. Blake lifted my leg up. He unzipped one boot and took it off. He swapped legs and took off the other boot...Sorry...not conducive to steamy sex scenes if you ask me!!!
There are also a few head shaking typo errors and a lot of repetition within sentences. I think there might also be a spot of inconsistency in there too, regarding some mail between Kylie and Ana.
I also can't help but feel the author has set up her next couple of books way too easily!! There will be not great surprises in figuring out who they involve.
All in all, for a debut it's a good effort. Ms. Stookes shows a lot of potential and purely because I love Sawyer, I will be reading book 2 in this series...next, in fact!

What an amazing story!! I cannot wait to read more from Lynn Stookes. This story has so many emotions and ups and downs, I felt like I was on roller coaster. Boy, was it a hell of a ride! Getting to know Kylie and Blake was the highlight of the story. I loved them each, but really enjoyed when they finally came together. Poor Kylie has had a rough life, so you just want her to have a happy ending. Her friends and family made this story complete because they each had great back stories. There was so much suspense, drama, happiness, sadness, lust and love to keep you thoroughly entertained!!

My Review:

I have a new BBF, swoon! Blake is precious, sweet, kind, protective, and multi-talented. Of course he could only be found in a book… Ms. Stookes has made a strong debut with her initial offering of a steamy and suspenseful mystery. She had intriguing twists and turns that I did not see coming, the humorous character interactions and teasing that I enjoy, and likable characters with interesting traits and quirks. I am eager to see what she has planned for her characters in the next book of the series Ultimate Deception.

Recovering from a life altering even, Kylie Delaney moves back to her home town. The town she left as soon as she could and the same place that held so many memories both good and bad.
Blake Winters has moved back to his hometown is now a detective on the police force after working for the Austin PD. He wanted a change and never imagined it would come if the form of the girl he loved 10 years ago.
The characters are well developed as is the writing. The plot has a few twists and is fast paced. It hooked me from the beginning. I look forward to reading more from this author.

I really enjoyed reading this book because romantic suspense is my go-to genre.
This author did a great job throwing different scenarios at you then dragging you back into the happiness.
But how does this story turn out well you will just have to read it to find out.
Yep this one has is all. Drama, Mystery, Love, Sex, and twisted confusion.

I was very impressed with this book and especially with the author (this was her first book!). I love Romantic Suspense. This story is twisty and will keep you guessing until the very end. Although I was able to confirm my suspicions, the author still gave me a final twist that left me gasping and almost screaming to my e-reader (everyone in my house was sleep; otherwise I really would have screamed). There were a few mistakes here and there, mostly repetition of adjectives within the same paragraphs, but the story is so well written the reader is able to go on and not dwell on these too much. Great job, Ms. Stookes! Can’t wait for the next one!

This book completely took my breath away, especially with that ending!! Wow!! Is the only word I can comprehend right now to describe it!
