Secrets of St. Augustine by Traci Hunter Abramson ~*5 stars*
Greedy private school administrators wreak havoc when they decide to take money from helpless children. I loved FBI agent Doug Valdez and his family. Their compassion, love, and willingness to provide shelter and protection to Layla made them my heroes as her world fell apart. The book was action from the start of the story until the very end.
Hounded by Clair M Poulsen ~ *4 stars*
Renn was former military and has entered the PI business. He is excited to begin his new job working with Bob Lyman. His first day on the job was probably more intense than he had hoped. Between shots fired through the windows of the office, searching out homeless people, and some very bad dudes, his work is cut out for him. He works well with others and is hot on the trail of the villains. There is a ton of action happening in this story.
In Plain Sight by Paige Edwards ~ *5 stars*
Jaclyn works four jobs. She happens to find herself in trouble on her way to work when she becomes a witness to a drug deal. Fortunately for her, undercover agent Cody Ackert is quick thinking and tries to shield her from danger. The situation gets out of control and agent Ackert is racing against the clock to keep her from harm. I loved the romantic tension and the action that is from the first to the last page.
If you are a suspense lover, this collection is a great way to pass the time. I could see the drama playing out in my head! Paige Edwards and Traci Abramson are two of my favorite authors of this genre. You can't go wrong when they are penning the pages.
