Detectives Ben and Chase Dawson have been sent to investigate an unusual murder at an exclusive resort owned by Julian Lodge. The prime suspect is a young woman who was the last person to see the victim alive. Julian wants them to ensure her safety while also conducting the investigation. The job seems simple enough, until Ben and Chase discover that the beautiful woman they have both come to desire has dark secrets.
Natalie Buchanan came to the Willow Fork Tranquility Spa seeking sanctuary after escaping the clutches of a twisted sadist. Working as a massage therapist at the resort has given her a chance to heal. It also offers her an opportunity to reconnect to the lifestyle she thought she would never be comfortable in again. But when one of her regular clients ends up dead on her table, Natalie fears that the monster she once escaped has come back to claim her.
As Natalie rediscovers her own power, all three will be forced to confront her past.
Whenever a Lexi Blake story pops up on my kindle, I pretty much put other books aside to get my fix. If I’m experiencing a reading slump,I know that a Lexi Blake book will fix it. And yet, there was a point, pretty early on in this book where I was concerned that a predictable path was being followed. Of course, I really should have known better than to think that way, because Ms Blake did what she always does – surpassed my expectations.
This story is a delight. Not just because of Ben, Chase and Natalie, but because of the other familiar characters who feature quite prominently. Not only does that wider cast of characters add humour throughout, but they also help to join up plot threads and characters arcs quite nicely.
It goes without saying – this book is hot (even though I just said that). But the spice doesn’t detract from the overall delivery from the story. It’s simply an essential part of the narrative. And you’ve got to love that – I certainly did!
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
