As if things aren't complicated enough, Nick Sorenson, the paper's new photographer, seems to be taking an unusual interest in this case. And in her. Maggie doesn't realize that she's falling in love with a man who's not what he seems to be. A man whose deceptions may save her life.

I'm a working journalist and love to read romances that have reporters in the storyline. Brenda Novak does a perfect job with her heroine, Maggie Russell, a divorced mom trying to make it as a cop reporter at the Sacramento Tribune. Maggie covers a brutal murder, a story that may advance her career. But she must also deal with FBI agent Nick Sorenson, posing as the newspaper's photographer. Not only does Nick want to protect her without her knowledge (staying incognito helps him pick her brain on what she's reporting on), but she can't deny the feelings developing between them. The story moves along briskly as the case escalates. The relationship between Nick and Maggie also takes off, with all its complications. But what makes 'Dear Maggie' so rich is the strong writing, the well-defined storyline and the realistic problems between these two, not to mention the extensive homework Novak did on the newspaper business. An excellent book from one of the brightest new stars around, I heartily recommend it.
In Sacramento, California, Tribune police beat reporter and single mother Maggie Russell raises her preschool son while working the night shift. Her only entertainment not associated with her child is the Internet and currently she exchanges e-mail with a man named John. Maggie is working on a case that probably involves serial killer Dr. Dan, who targets female journalists. Ogden, Utah based FBI agent Nick Sorenson is undercover as a photographer for the Tribune. He is watching Maggie who he and his superiors think might be Dr. Dan¿s next victim. He is also watching Maggie because he finds himself quiet attracted to the beautiful divorcee. As he falls in love with Maggie and she falls in love with John, Dr. Dan sets in motion his plan to make her his next victim. DEAR MAGGIE is a powerful romantic suspense tale that explains the Super in this imprint. The story line is fast-paced, loaded with non-stop action, and an intriguing romantic triangle. Maggie is a magnificent lead player as she is brave yet emotionally vulnerable and a perfect profile for the killer. Nick is a hero who knows what he wants: Maggie, not just safe, but permanently in his life. Her son Zach provides some moments of amusement that only an outsider observing his actions will find mirth in, but it serves to ease some of the taut tension that almost overwhelms the reader. Brenda Novak has written a novel that sub-genre fans will relish. Harriet Klausner
