    Hang on for the ride of your life!!!

    This book is the first book by Amy Clipston that I have had the pleasure of reading. And I must be honest and tell you that I am not a big racing fan, but I absolutely LOVED Amy's book, Betrayed. So much so that I am anxiously awaiting a second racing series book to be released!

    This is kind of a romantic mystery with a bit of humor mixed in. Set in my wonderful home state of North Carolina, Amy tells the story of Lacey, the young daughter of a Nascar team owner, who has loved the driver of one team car from afar for as long as she can remember. But while she's away at college in Maryland, tragedy strikes-her father and stepmother both meet death in a fatal 1 car accident....but was it truly an accident?

    Reese has known Lacey since the day she was born. She's like a kid sister to him. So when news of her father's accident reaches him, he's determined to be there for her. But she's not making it easy. In trying to convince Lacey that she can trust him he finds himself seeing her as a gorgeous woman, not just his "squirt" and he's falling her. So what's he to do when she tells him she thinks her parents' accident isn't an accident and someone he's close to may be guilty?

    Will Lacey accept his proposal and together they can find the betrayer? Or will she just move on and try to buy his share of her father's company?

    Amy has the power to keep you with the story from the first line. She mixes humor, mystery and romance in a way that will never bore you! It was hard to put this book down, especially with each new twist that came about! I recommend Amy's Betrayed to Nascar fans, romance lovers, and mystery seekers because she combines all three in this novel and takes you on a ride you don't want to miss!

    Betrayed! That was how Lacey felt, when just eight short months after her father's remarriage, he and her stepmother were killed in a horrible accident. Then at the reading of the will, she was outraged and hurt that her father had left his racing company to her and Reese.

    Reese, the most gorgeous and sexy man that Lacey had ever laid eyes on. However, she had known him since they were babies, their dads were best friends, and he had worked his way up to a driver on the team. Now she had to share "her" racing company with him. Oh the problem was not that she did not like Reese, it was that she did like him. Way too much!!

    Zipping home for a short visit, from college, after her dad's death, Lacey discovers that something is seriously amiss! Things have been moved around in her house, Carl, Reese's dad and her father's best friend is acting downright weird. Something is not right, and she turns to Reese to help her figure it out.

    Working together they will solve this mystery. But will Lacey's heart survive? Will Reese betray her trust?

    A well written novel, Amy Clipston has once again shown her great talent. However as a fan of her Christian fiction, I was disappointed that this was not in that same genre. There was mild language and sexual innuendos, that did not add to the story line at all. 257 pages $25.95 US

    I love this story!!!

    BETRAYED, is one of the most wonderful romances I've read using car racing as a theme! I'm not a car racing fan, but if Reese, the hero, is any indication of how wonderful racers can be, count me in! I loved the way Ms. Clipston introduced amazing conflict into the story, while making Reese and Lacey (the heroine) work together for the common good. This is truly one of the stories that will keep me awake at night, wondering how these very believable characters are doing and how they continued their lives in love. I can't wait for more of these types of books to come from this author and would love to wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone with a heart.

    Great mystery

    In Mooresville, North Carolina, Lacey Fowler is distraught when her beloved father Greg and his wonderful second wife Veronica die in a car crash on their way home from Daytona. The family attorney informs Lacey that her father named her and driver Reese Mitchell as co-owners of his Southern Racing. Lacey is outraged as she is ready to leave college to run the company alone and making matters worse she loves Reese who is too busy womanizing to notice she is an adult.

    However, as she digs into the company's records, she finds the bottom line does not add up as if someone has extorted money. She knows few people would have access of this sort with the prime person being Reese's dad Carl who is like a dad to her. As she investigates her father's death after seeing photos of the scene, the evidence of embezzlement increasingly point to Carl. With Reese helping her, they begin to unravel the truth even as he falls in love with a woman he always thought of as his younger sister.

    Although the plot has been used before, Amy Clipston superbly executes the story line of an amateur sleuth investigating embezzlement and murders that implicate the father of the heroine's beloved. The story line is fast-paced keeping up with the racing car theme as Lacey and Reese fall in love but distrust lingers due to the evidence pointing at Carl. With a couple of nice spins, fans will want to ride with Ms. Clipston as she takes readers around the track.

    Not your regular who done it?

    Are you looking for something a bit different to lounge away those sultry summer days? Well look no further, Amy Clipston is the hot new author who knows how to keep that temperature rising. Her face paced novel BETRAYED hooks you from the moment you beging reading.

    Ms. Clipston main characters are easy to identify with and fall for. The anguish they feel is gut wrenching when a close member seems to be the prime suspect. Your heart wrenches when the two are torn apart and you nearly jump for joy when they unite. Bravo!

    From the beginning car accident to the marriage to save the company, who would have thought stock car racing could contain such cloak and dagger! This book will delight any race car fan or reader of romance. I definitely recommend Ms. Clipston's book to anyone. I hope we will see more of her efforts in the future. This book definitely belongs on your shelves and "in the winner's circle".
