California Moon based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
One of the John Does rushed to Shreveport¿s St. Christopher¿s Charity Hospital is dead; the comatose other is barely clinging to life. Both were badly beaten before the murder. The deceased is identified as Adam Rivers of New Orleans. The other Doe remains in intensive care under police watch, but still unidentified. Nurse Shannon Riley is assigned to John. Police Chief Bremen assigns newly appointed Officer Ben Richards to keep John safe and to inform when the victim becomes conscious. As the days creep by, a lonely Shannon begins to fantasize that John is her knight in shining armor. During that same stretch, Ben begins to fall in love with an uninterested Shannon. When John awakens, instead of being grateful and loving, he abducts her. As they flee towards Texas, a Colombian cartel and a corrupt police official highly connected in Louisiana politics follow. They need John and Shannon dead to insure no trail tracks back to their illegal activities. CALIFORNIA MOON is an exciting romantic suspense that never slows down for a minute breather. The story line is fast-paced with a weird triangle-like romance starring three players containing secrets. Shannon is an interesting character who has a past that makes John¿s mess seem picnic-like. Ben also conceals something major about himself. John is more of a victim, but knows what everyone wants. Tied together by corruption and murder, Catherine Lanigan weaves an action-packed tale that requires a sequel. Harriet Klausner
