    Excellent addition to the Broslin Creek romantic suspense series

    Excellent addition to the Broslin Creek romantic suspense series

    4 1/2 stars

    “Deathblow” by Dana Marton is the exciting fourth book in the enthralling ‘Broslin Creek’ series. Officer Joe Kessler is juggling many things in his life, his undercover assignment that results in his being handcuffed in a car that is forced off the road, his love life that gives him his well-deserved reputation as a ladies’ man, a murder investigation that involves a friend and a favor that he agrees to do even though he is slightly discomfited by the idea. Model and single-mother Wendy Belle struggles to cope with the abusive behavior of her child’s father but is unwilling to accept that she needs protection against him, despite her friend Sophie’s pleading. Wendy and Joe have a past connection but they are uncomfortable when forced into proximity and subsequent developments increase the tension as well as the danger to each of them, physically and emotionally, and it is questionable whether they will both survive to explore a deeper connection.

    This compelling series continues to provide exciting and suspenseful tales as it expands to include various characters associated with with the Broslin Creek police department. The gripping introduction to the hero’s predicament is contrasted with the sobering experiences of a woman who has to learn that she deserves better in life. There are several different threads deftly woven together as the tension escalates and danger threatens both of the main characters and the light relief provided by Wendy’s adorable son and the furry secondary characters is a welcome counterpoint. The sensual connection between Joe and Wendy provides delicious heat and their poignant experiences together enhances the relationship that develops. There are a couple of places where credulity is a bit stretched but the overall story is a wonderful rollercoaster of a read and an excellent addition to the series. I continue to be impressed at the author’s ability to write a mesmerizing tale and advise you not to start the story unless you have time to finish it because you won’t want to put it down. Can’t wait for the next story involving these charismatic inhabitants of Broslin Creek.

    My Review: 4.5 Star Review - DEATHBLOW Broslin Creek Series I

    My Review:

    4.5 Star Review - DEATHBLOW Broslin Creek Series

    I recommend this book.

    As always I enjoyed the book by Dana she combines suspense with humor very nicely. This book includes drama, passion, attempted kidnapping, gunfire, betrayal and romance throughout the entire story.

    Look forward to the next book in this series Due out in 2014:

    Joe is on a undercover assignment that is going down hill fast. Once he makes it home he is assigned to protect Wendy. He met Wendy months ago and she has been in his head ever since.

    Wendy is afraid of her ex. She just needs him to sign papers but instead he attacks her. She runs in fear of her life and the life of her son.

    While Wendy and Joe dodge her ex. they are trying to figure out if they can have a relationship.

    As the book continues Wendy becomes a stronger woman with Joe's help. Joe learns lessons about how to tread lightly so Wendy will let him into her life.

    Fast paced action story. Just when you think you know what will happen Dana throws in a curve. Had a hard time putting the book down. Dana know how to keep you sucked in the story.

    This was another awesome book in the Broslin creek series. I can't wait for the next book in this series.



    It was a really great book you are going to love it.

    The first chapter of Deathblow hooks you in with unrelenting exc

    The first chapter of Deathblow hooks you in with unrelenting excitement as you meet the two main characters: Joe Kessler, an undercover cop, caught in a gang related car chase and trapped in the back of a police cruiser which is currently sinking rapidly in the Schuykill River; and Wendy Belle, unwed mother of a two year old and trapped in a physically abusive relationship with her baby's father. The story brings these two together in the town of Broslin Creek, a familiar setting for three other Dana Marton novels. It also brings back cameos of other Broslin Creek characters, including Captain Bing and Sophia. Nonstop action as well as a touch of romance all play out in this latest Death installment. Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    A book with a rich story line, breathtaking action and romantic suspense that keeps you turning the pages until the very end.

            His last encounter with Wendy... Hell, she'd been the one to hurt his feelings.
    The best sex of his life, and she'd kicked him out as soon as it was over, told him not to bother with calling because it was strictly a one-time thing. Told him, actually, while he'd still been inside her.
    He groaned at the memory as he slipped behind the wheel, turning on the heat the second he had the engine started.
    His day was shaping up to be an ass kicker. Which was saying something, considering that the day before included his arrest, a concussion, and a near drowning.




    DEATHBLOW by Dana Marton is a very good romantic suspense read!  It's the fourth book in Dan's Broslin Creek series. Each book in this series features a different officer in the small town Broslin Police Department as a lead character and each has their own stories, so any of them can easily be enjoyed as a standalone out of series order. DEATHBLOW is a fast-paced, intensely realistic, action-packed thriller with a compelling romance featuring Wendy Belle as the damsel in distress heroine and Joe Kessler as the sexy law enforcement hero.

    Page turner!

    I bought this book in the Naught Nine box set. So I read it out of order with the rest of the series, but that didn't seem to matter. Great book! Love the love story & the action going on. Can't wait to go back & read the rest of the Broslin Creek books.

    By the time I read "Deathblow" I'd already read "

    By the time I read "Deathblow" I'd already read "Deathtrap" and "Deathscape", and I wanted more stories of the Broslin PD and their lives and loves. I was invested in the town and its police department and eagerly anticipating more, and this book did not disappoint. From its high adrenaline beginning, with our hero facing death, to the final curtain, it had me riveted. I was worried for the characters, wanting to tell them NO! when I could see them wandering into danger, hoping someone would run to the rescue once they got themselves in a fix. 

    As usual with a consummate professional like Ms Marton, all the characters were real and their situations satisfying. No deus ex machina here; they got out of all their difficulties in a believable way. The dialogue sparkled, all loose ends were tied up, everything was great, except one thing: the book ended. 

    I understand there's another instalment in the series coming. I'll be looking out for it.
