Port Henry Ledger Book Review by Betsy Tremaine: WRONG GUY HAS THE WRITE STUFF IN TORRID LOVE STORY
Let me tell you, dear reader, I've rarely been subjected to such drivel as I have in the novels of bestselling tough-guy cop-turned-author J. Soldier McKennitt. The man himself, however, is considerably more interesting. Having finally met him at a recent writers' conference in Seattle, I am pleased to report that Soldier is a tall, dark, and gorgeous hunk of literary superstar. To my surprise, he became quite the charmer once his self-righteous indignation evaporated ... Could it have been this critic's blonde hair and hourglass figure that brought about such an abrupt turnaround? Or perhaps our Soldier boy was simply vanquished by this reviewer's intelligence and caustic wit. In any case, due to the recent emergence of a crazed stalker, this plot has since thickened uncomfortably, and Detective McKennitt has brashly assumed the role of my knight in shining Brooks Brothers.
Bottom Line: The only thing standing in the way of a beautiful relationship in this love story is the fact that the two protagonists are so deliriously, passionately wrong for each other!
Good Banter, Fun And definitely a fun Romance tale.
Although a romance novel this book has a thriller style plot running through it. The heroine is Betsy Tremaine she writes the book reviews for the Port Henry Ledger and has slated all of J Soldier McKennitts books. She is also being stalked so takes the opportunity of a crime writers conference in Seattle to escape the stalker. At the conference she meets Soldier McKennittt and the verbal sparing begins. But Betsy's stalker has followed her and Soldier is a cop to the core, he will protect her and he will find the stalker, but will he be able to love and commit to Betsy? The verbal banter is fun, and Betsy is looking after her mothers dog Piddle who adds a comic touch (and also has an interesting part to play), the romance is hot when it finally happens and the stalker plot adds darkness and a different dimension as well as a climbing body count. I definitely recommend this book (and more accurately would have given it 4 ½ stars)
