ARC Book review: Broslin Bride (Broslin Creek #5) by Dana Marton
ARC ebook provided by author
The worst time to be charged with murder is:
A. When you have no alibi for the night in question.
B. When you have no memory of the night in question.
C. When you told people you hated the victim.
D. When the detective is the 1st guy you ever slept with--which didn't end well.
Check all of the above for Luanne Mayfair. If it wasn't for bad luck, she wouldn't have any luck at all. Okay, maybe a little luck. As it turns out, Detective Chase Merritt doesn't hold grudges.
He still looks at Luanne just as he did in high school, except he's grown some serious 'hot cop' muscles--very distracting when Luanne is trying to avoid the very law Chase represents.
Is she the killer? Is she being framed? Is she the next victim? As Chase and Luanne race to find some answers, danger and heat ratchet up in this fast-paced romantic mystery that will stop your heart one second, then steal it in the next.
Book 5 in the Broslin Creek series by Dana Martin. While i haven't read every book in this series the ones i have read have been pretty intense. This book takes a little bit of a turn from that. Luanne wakes up to realize she probably killed her boss. The evidence is there in the huge dent in the front of her car and the blood. Unfortunately the night before is a blank. She was at the bar and met a man who bought her a drink. Next thing you know she wakes up in bed and it's morning. Now what? Chase Merritt was Luanne's first time. That didn't go well they were young and inexperienced. Since then they've avoided each other until Chase has to investigate the murder of Luanne's boss. Luanne has a couple of good reasons to figure out what's going in. Her twin 4 year old sisters. Chase offers to be her friend but it's hard for Luanne to trust. That doesn't keep Chase from stepping in and helping anyway. This story has it's definite suspense but it also has it's funny bits. At one point you might think you know who the killer is but you'll be wrong. I had a couple of suspects but was never sure who the killer actually was until it was revealed. A slow build to an intense ending. Once again Dana Marton shows her ability to put out a solid book.
