My Review

I have read a few books by author Darlene L. Turner and have enjoyed each one of her novels so far. She knows how to grab your attention immediately from the first page of the story.

The story is a quick read and a page-turner with its fast-paced plot. It kept me up way too late! I had a hard time disengaging myself from it. It was hard to find a good point to put the book up for the night.

The main characters are great and you come to like them immediately. Madison Steel is a Border Patrol agent. One night she receives a frantic call from her step-sister who is killed in a car accident.

Then you have Tucker Reed a Sheriff Deputy. Madison and Tucker were high school sweethearts. When they meet up at the scene of the accident of her sister-in-law it doesn’t look like an accident. Tucker is a man of strong faith who is shining a light on Madison and her disbelief as an atheist. Sparks still kindle with the two of them. With her unbelief, Tucker knows that it is a huge obstacle for them to rekindle a romance. Madison observes his faith throughout the danger that is coming against them.

They both end up at her sister, Leah’s employer who works for a pharmaceutical company. The situation escalates quickly after Leah receives a package from Leah.

This is a wonderful story with a plot that is filled with a lot of twists and turns. The book is not too predictable and it has a great set of characters from the main ones to the villains.

More from Darlene

The Hidden Staircase, The Secret of the Old Clock, The Sign of the Twisted Candles—these were just some of my favorite Nancy Drew books. I couldn’t get enough of them growing up! My family often saw me with my nose stuck in one of Nancy’s many tales. When I was finished with those, I’d sneak my brother’s Hardy Boy books and devour them too. This is where my love of writing and of a good mystery/suspense began.

Creating stories in the romantic suspense genre was a natural journey for me. I had always wanted to be a policewoman after watching Charlie’s Angels (they even kicked butt while wearing high heels…what could be better than that?!), Cagney and Lacey, Police woman, Murder She Wrote, etc. My love for all-things-mystery carried into my adult life. Who doesn’t love Sydney Bristow and Kate Beckett?

I enjoy creating strong female characters in a law enforcement role. Madison Steele fits the bill head on as she works to bring down a ruthless pharmaceutical company. While she has nerves of steel, I also wanted to make her vulnerable. In the beginning Madison loses her long-lost sister in a heart-wrenching crash. One she knows was not an accident. This thrusts her into a deadly pursuit of the perpetrators with her estranged high school sweetheart, Tucker Reed, by her side.

I wrote this book during the tough year our world faced living in the unknown. Madison and Tucker are stuck in their own fears but eventually find hope. Hope in the unknown and hope in knowing God is in control and with us—no matter the circumstances. We just need to know where to look. 

I hope you enjoy reading Madison and Tucker’s story as much as I loved crafting it. I’d love to hear from you. You can contact me through my website www.darlenelturner.com and also sign up for Darlene’s Diary newsletter to receive exclusive subscriber giveaways.
