    Excellent reading!

    John Merrick quits the Chicago Police Department when he kills an undercover officer during a bust. Even though he is cleared by the Grand Jury and Internal Affairs, John is unable to forgive himself. He can no longer even bring himself to pick up his gun. Instead, he now picks up a bottle. When John receives a call from Benjamin Wainwright in New Orleans requesting help to catch a stalker, he wants to say no. Instead, he heads to New Orleans. ================ Julia Wainwright owns and operates an antique bookstore. Ever since her literary erotica novel had been published a couple of months ago, she has been receiving threatening letters. The novel does not have her real name on it it has her pseudonym, Elizabeth de Haviland. Only a few people even know that she is the author. Her father is certainly not one of those few! Her father, Benjamin, is about to be elected director of the Eternity Springs Ministries. Julia does not want her book to cause scandal for her dad. But someone knows and disapproves enough to stalk her. She finally agrees to let John Merrick help. ================= The threats start to escalate quickly. Whoever it is, the stalker is able to get into her store and her home, which is above the book store. The stalker seems to know everything about her and those around her. As the violence gets worse, Julia and John must learn to trust each other before it is too late. ============ ***** This romantic suspense will give you cold chills. Though romance blooms later on within the pages of this tale, the suspense begins from the opening page. I found myself divided between the horror that torments John's past, as well as, from the fear and insecurity Julia feels from the stalker. Fantastic! *****

    exciting romantic suspense

    In Chicago a ton of Bolivian cocaine just made it to the south side with police detective John Merrick ready to insure the poison went no further. However, when a man points a shot gun at him, John shoots only to learn he killed undercover DEA Agent Franklin Watts. Unable to let go of the guilt, John leaves the force and moves to New Orleans though he is exonerated by Internal Affairs as a misfortunate friendly fire incident. In New Orleans Julia Wainwright owns and operates the Book Merchant antique bookstore. She recently has received six creepy letters printed on a laser but in olde English that seem threatening to her and her sister Claudia. Julia believes the writer knows her secret that she penned a novel under the pseudonym Elisabeth de Haviland so as not to embarrass her father, religious icon Benjamin. The siblings are scared because they know the creeper is nearby. Claudia informs their father who asks John to keep his daughter safe. He agrees though he wonders how he will perform, but quickly concludes that Julia is hiding a secret from him and that he is falling in love with her. --- This exciting romantic suspense is filled with tension as John feels he cannot do the job as he cannot touch a gun since the Watts death, but also believes that his beloved Julia is in danger from a stalker, but not sure why. The culprit seems more of a caricature of a lunatic religious fanatic unable to accept mortal sins for himself and his chosen one. Still the tension he brings with his persecution of Julia make for a fine thriller as John hopes that love enables him to do whatever, even kill, to keep his beloved safe. --- Harriet Klausner
