    Fast paced romantic suspense keeps the tension high

    Witness to Murder by Jill Elizabeth Nelson is part of the Love Inspired Suspense line from Steeple Hill. Hallie Berglund is an up and coming news reporter in Minnesota when she stumbles onto a murder scene: a beautiful model has been strangled to death and her boyfriend stands over the body with the weapon in his hands. Because of something in her past, Hallie is determined that the girl receive justice for her death, but co-worker Brody Jordan doesn't believe the boyfriend is guilty and is equally determined to prove it. They work together comparing clues and discoveries to find the truth, which may hold a piece to Hallie's own puzzled past. These types of romantic suspense novels can quickly slip into cliche, but Smith makes her characters original and the story compelling. Lots of red herrings are thrown out as the chemistry between the two reporters sparks. One small complaint: the villain spent too much time revealing every piece of his plan and his motives at the end; it felt unnatural to the rest of the action within the scene. Nelson is a writer who I always enjoy, and this title is another terrific example of her writing.
