Mist by Maureen M Miller is a story that will have you shivering with suspense as well as the cold of the Atlantic Ocean. Jack and Olivia meet due to a suspicious attack on his Uncle’s research vessel. From the moment they meet they are on the run from a threat that they don’t even understand. As readers we get to watch the mystery unravel with the characters. Miller can always be counted on to deliver an original story with great characters and edge of your seat suspense. Mist is no different. I enjoyed being taken out on the sea and learning about things new to me. It’s always fun to read about jobs or adventures that I would never find myself in on a regular basis. I might think twice about going out to sea again after reading this. Olivia and Jack’s romance was authentic and built with the story. There are no crazy love scenes in the midst of running for their lives because that isn’t them. They don’t rush into things but think them through. They made it more real and believable. It’s sweet. The set up for the next book, Dusk, was done quite well. I can’t wait to find out more about Amanda Newton of Blue-Link and Ray! Mist is an intriguing mystery filled with a nice balance of heart stopping action and calculated escapes so if you are looking for a well written romantic suspense, give this one a read. While it is part of the Blue-Link series, each book can be read on their own with individual plots.

MIST by Maureen A. Miller is the second in her BLUE-LINK series and was another hit with me. The twists and turns of the plot made me keep turning the pages until I was done. The action started in the first chapter and did not slow down until about the 84% mark but I think that was just to allow me time to catch my breath before I was off again with the story. Olivia McKay is a strong and independent woman. I admired her grit and determination to continue the family business after losing her family. Jack Morrell is a softer Alpha hero than the usual types in romantic suspense but he is all male. He's a scientist with a military academy background which gives him the necessary experience to be the CSO of his uncle's research facility. Their relationship starts out rocky but as they get to know each other the attraction builds. That is something I appreciate in Ms. Miller's writing is that she develops the relationship between the hero and heroine slowly; and I always feel like they have a firm foundation before they disappear into the bedroom. Amanda Newton is back, although from a distance. I am definitely intrigued by her and can't wait for her backstory. Ms. Miller also introduced a new character from BLUE-LINK, Ray Gorden and I hope she has plans for him in the next book in this series as he also intrigues me. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series.

Ms. Miller doesn’t disappoint in her second round with the mysterious company, BLUE-LINK. As a fan of the genre, I can tell you Ms. Miller always gets it right. Combining adventure, mystery and romance into the binding of a book is what she does best. However, in MIST I couldn’t help but notice that she has gotten a little soft on us. Jack and Livvy feel different than many of her previous protagonists; there’s an easy kind of love and tenderness between them, which we, or at least I, haven’t seen from the author’s other couplings so soon. It was a welcomed change of pace. From ominous scenes in Livvy’s home to those on the trawler, rocking off-shore in the cold Atlantic the plot is brilliantly written with plenty of suspense to keep you entertained up until the very last page. Both Livvy and Jack are bearing some scars of the past, which determine their actions going forward through this exhilarating tale. Livvy is strong and independent, without being overbearing. Jack is rugged, yet his action are truly swoon-worthy. Ms. Miller takes the time to develop her characters into lovable beings for her readers, as well as set the stage for the chilling ride ahead. Every page is appreciated. This isn’t the first Maureen A. Miller book I’ve read, and it certainly will not be the last. Keep 'em coming, Maureen!
