I love the expression on the woman’s face on the cover of this novel. Just had to put that out there to begin with. 🙂
A fantastic Romantic Suspense. Jolyse Barnett did a great job of providing the reader with a balance between the Suspense/Mystery and Romance. Her characters are well developed and read like real people. The relationship unfolded naturally and didn’t feel like it was forced. A Smooth moving plot with a mystery that kept me flipping pages to the very end.
Author Jolyse Barnett writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense.
As a little girl growing up in upstate New York on the shores of Lake Champlain, she enjoyed chasing fireflies, riding her ten-speed bike on winding country roads, and playing horseshoes at family picnics through endless summers. Winter was another kind of adventure for an active kid, with skiing in the Adirondack Mountains, trips to the local public library to feed a voracious reading habit, and ice skating with her siblings on a frozen pond near her childhood home. Much to the confusion of her peers, she discovered the thrill of storytelling at a young age, often forgetting to differentiate between fact and fantasy. Thankfully her fifth grade teacher encouraged her to memorize poems and create her own—unleashing her inner writer. After graduating from high school, she developed a more practical side. She earned a degree in Writing, fell in love with her best friend, and now lives her happily-ever-after in Long Island suburbia. Who knew the dream home would include a leaky kitchen faucet, piles of laundry, and a too-hairy cat? But with love, it’s all good. She enjoys a fulfilling day job where she shares her love of language and explores the world one vacation at a time with her two children and real-life hero. Jolyse loves to connect with her readers.
