Dr. Shannon Lovejoy and husband Jay have built a financially successful relationship counseling empire. Their books and radio show are hits, and they’re about to embark on their biggest speaking engagement yet. Unfortunately, their own relationship is fraught with resentment and infidelity. Then Jay’s mistress Vonda is murdered, and the Lovejoys are kidnapped by gunmen demanding the return of a mysterious item Vonda gave Jay…or else. The couple escape their assailants, only to realize they are the prime suspects in Vonda’s murder. Their only hope is to fulfill the mob’s request and somehow try to clear their name. Will they be able to overcome their challenges and work together, or will this be the final straw that breaks their already strained union?
VERDICT Best-selling author Billingsley’s (More to Life) first foray into the romantic suspense genre is an absolute thrill ride. The plot builds slowly, but gains momentum the minute the Lovejoys go on the run. While there’s pulse-pounding action, the emphasis remains on the couple’s emotional development. Overall, an exciting entry from an author with legions of fans.
