Zebra: Kensington. Mar. 2020. 368p. ISBN 9781420151145. pap. $7.99. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
Each novella in this collection shares a common thread: a woman is on the run and in danger, assisted by a hero with a background in law enforcement. Martin’s (Against the Heart) Meri Jones is on the move with her young daughter. When she needs money, ex-cop Ian Brodie hires her to help with his dad’s house, but she has a dangerous secret. After Alexandra Ivy’s (Echoes of the Past) Melanie Cassidy foils a kidnapping, she’s shocked to be reconnected with Det. Gray Hawkins. They reexamine their relationship as they investigate corrupt cops. And Rebecca Zanetti’s (Shaken) Michelle Peach is reunited with her ex, Evan Boldon, a marine-turned-sheriff, after two men break into her apartment. The novellas are loosely connected, set during roughly the same time period and sharing some characters and plot threads. Each story can be read in a single sitting and contains a complete arc for its characters that is both believable and engaging, despite the shorter format.
VERDICT This anthology is perfect for readers of romantic suspense who are looking for more from the included authors or for introductions to writers who are sure to become future favorites.
