Romantic Suspense, Yes, there was plenty of suspense. It kept me guessing throughout the book. Also, my interest in the story increased the more I read. The romance that developed between new SOS Agent Dixie Reeves and the client Andrew Stratford made the story that much better. I love these Stealth Operations Specialists (SOS) stories!!!

A little bit of spooky with ghost stories, a lot of intrigue with a treasure hunt and old mansion with secret hallways, and lots of love between three broken people in desperate need of healing are the makings of this tale. A final episode, so to say, to a well-loved series where most of the previous characters get to visit for a minute of two, and Andrew, the stockbroker, gets his chance with a mending of wounds inside and finding happiness. All three of the main characters Andrew, Dixie, and Andrew's daughter Leigha have a form of PTSD from their former times. The past events were glanced over just enough to explain them to the reader. I enjoyed the instant connection and development of the relationship between Andrew and Dixie, yet I wished they would have spent a little bit more time reconstructing themselves from the past. Both Andrew and Dixie are slightly intimidating, yet easy to be around with, and so obviously falling for each other. Andrew's daughter has them both wrapped around her little finger, and the trio soon form a family unit. I loved watching both Andrew and Dixie just melt when it came to anything to do with Leigha. Leigha was an absolute delight, with her ghostly friend and loyal dog, they provided the entertainment and light fun to the story. The suspenseful attacks towards the characters, the excitement of the possible treasure, mixed with Andrew's family history was enchanting and fascinating. The book was easy to read and had a nice flow to it. I felt that most of the issues got an easy solution, and were treated lightly, but that didn't dim the pleasure of the story or the entertainment of the tale. ~ Four Spoons

Action, suspense, ghosts, very likeable characters, including an adorable little girl and her dog, the friendly small town of Cape Churn, Oregon, sweet but steamy love scenes and the thick fog known as the Devil’s Shroud; this story has it all. This book starts out with the attempted murder of Andrew Stratford, our hero, leading to his employment of former Airborne Ranger & MMA Champion, Dixie Reeves, our heroine. Dixie’s job is to protect Andrew’s daughter, Leigha while the mystery of the attempted murder and other suspicious activity is solved. Along the way Dixie falls for Andrew, Leigha and black Labrador Retriever, Brewer. Follow along as the mystery of hidden treasure is solved along with the guilty being identified. Author Elle James composes the complete package of an excellent story here with her fast-paced storyline, excellent character development, interesting dialogue and great plot resolution. This story is part of the Elle James Devil’s Shroud series and the first in that series that I have read. Believe me it won’t be the last. I highly recommend this book.

4 1/2 STARS! An attention getting mystery from start to finish! Quick to read, intriguing with a side of sweetness! Former soldier Dixie Reeves is happy to take on a new job just when she needs the distraction most. She's set to be a bodyguard to a billionaire's daughter. When she arrives and meets the family, she's immediately drawn in and is determined to keep them safe! Andrew Stratford doesn't understand what's going on in his house, but he's determined to keep his daughter safe. When Dix arrives and is not what he was expecting, he doesn't think he can trust her to get the job done, but when she puts him in his place and proves her worthiness, they agree to a truce. When attraction flares, will they be able to work together to figure out who is out to get him?

Good story, quick read. Deadly Fall is part of the Devil’s Shroud series but you don’t need to have read it to enjoy this one. While Harlequin series books are no longer at the top of my TBR (to be read) list, I am a huge fan of books by Elle James and will read anything she writes. This was a very quick read for me and I enjoyed it. The attraction between Dixie and Andrew could be felt in the writing and I loved how Andrew was willing to risk his life for a daughter he didn’t even know existed; his devotion to Leigha was wonderful. I loved the mystery and suspense in this story. I just wish that there had been an epilogue (I’m a sucker for epilogues). After the mystery was solved I wanted to know a little bit more about how things really wrapped up. Considering that this was the last book in the series I think an epilogue would have been a perfect touch. If you’ve enjoyed the other books in this series I’m sure you won’t want to miss this one as characters from previous books make an appearance. Even if you haven’t read any others this would still be a great read for anyone who enjoys romantic suspense stories from Harlequin. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
