From the Inside Flap

Book One in Palm Beach County Homicide

About the Author

V.K. Sykes is really two people - Vanessa Kelly and Randy Sykes, a husband and wife team who write USA Today Bestselling contemporary romance and also romantic suspense. Randy excels at plot and characterization, but tends to fall down on the job when it comes to that pesky old thing called emotion. That's where Vanessa steps in. She usually writes the sex scenes too, since Randy is a bit uncomfortable when it comes to that sort of stuff. Vanessa also writes award-winning Regency-set historical romance for Kensington Zebra under her own name. You can check out Vanessa's bestselling historical romances at vanessakellyauthor.com.

If you like a book heavy on suspense and police work and lite on romance then this book is for you. I prefer mine the other way around. The book was enjoyable and Luke and Amy were well matched characters. Both had great tragedies in their lives because of which Amy has built very high walls around herself and has become very single minded and driven. Luke has chosen to live life. They are thrown together to find a serial killer who's killing baseball players wives.

Amy Robitaille is a hard wording, no-nosense homicide detective determined to catch those who terrorize others. After losing her sister at a young age, Robitaille has committed her life to solving crime leaving little time for anything else include a social life or a family of her own.

Luke Beckett is a former baseball star and ex-Marine. After all star performances on the field and serving over seas, he's enjoying early retirement by visiting children at a local Children's Hospital and taking up golf in his spare time.

When a naked and mutilated corpse is found in Palm Beach Country, the city goes on high alert for a killer living among them. When the cops determine the murderer may be targeting baseball players wives, they must pool all their forces to stop the killer before he claims his next victim.

In the most important case of her career, the last thing Robitaille needs is a famous pampered baseball star muddling the investigation, but Beckett has no intention of stepping to the side in this one. Robitaille and Beckett will need to combine their resources if they want any hope of stopping this killer. However, first impressions might not be quite as they seem, and the building sparks that fly between them may prove too great to ignore.

Will they catch this killer before he strikes again? As the evidence mounts, and the killer strikes closer to home, learning to trust each other may be a matter of life and death.

A gripping novel, V. K. Sykes hits this one out of the park! An engaging mystery from start to finish with a pulse-racing blend of suspense, murder, romance, and action. This is a must read!!

I really liked this story, a suspenseful mystery about a search for a serial killer. The heroine is Detective Amy who is determined to solve this case and stop the killer before any more minor league baseball players' wives wind up dead. She's not too happy to have to work with a "consultant", former major league baseball player and future hall of famer, the attractive Luke. The story is well written and the plot is interesting and complex. Both the hero and heroine have lost loved ones to killers in the past, making them committed to finding this one, and giving them something in common that they didn't expect. There is plenty of action and also personal character growth as the story unfolds, including the personal relationship between Amy and Luke which heats up as the case does. There are sexual scenes, violence and profanity in this book as part of the story. Overall, this was an interesting and exciting story and I recommend it for grown ups.

Heat factor hot.

I am amazed I purchased this book for $0.99! This was a long and very detailed police procedural mixed with a bit of romantic suspense. It was very well written and edited. The language was mild and the sex scenes nice but not to graphic or overly frequent. Amy was a tough character with a huge chip on her shoulder. Despite all this, I really liked her. Beckett was the perfect man for her with his patience and determination. I totally plan to check out more of this author's books. I hope both Jenn and Pushy from this book get their own stories too.

I am a little torn by this book. I have enjoyed some V. K. Sykes books more than others. I had high hopes for this one.

I will start by saying that looking at the cover and reading the synopsis that this book was a Romance/Suspense, heavier on the Romance side of things. This definitely was not the case. I did not even find there was any chemistry between Amelie and Luke. In fact, I thought their initial sexual encounter quite laughable. No romance there with the bolting up the stairs and back down to grab a condom.

Both of the leading characters had much grief to deal with from their past lives, much like most romance novels. I'm not sure Amelie's was ever dealt with much at all.

I liked the actual plot, though I found it quite unbelievable that somebody would become that obsessed with Minor League ball players.

My major complaint about this book was the amount of grammatical errors, (hopefully just on the Kindle version), and the French swearing. I found both way too distracting. I have relatives and friends from Montreal and none of them do this when speaking English.

So totally intense that I couldn't stop reading until the end! Amy and Luke are so combustible that you can feel the heat!! I really enjoyed this story...romance, suspense and sports...... a totally unbeatable combination! And Alicia is such a trooper that the old adage of never starring with a child as they will upstage you is certainly true even in books!!
