Reviews - What do customers think about Killer Cargo (Steeple Hill Love Inspired Suspense #106)?
Nail biting edge of your seat romantic suspense Jun 5, 2008
Killer Cargo is Dana Mentink's first romantic suspense title for Steeple Hill released hot on the heels of her cozy mystery, Trouble Up Finney's Nose from Heartsong Presents Mysteries. A terrific book by the way. You'll want to purchase that one too.
Killer Cargo opens with pilot Maria de Silva sitting in her small plane on the tarmac waiting for her contacts to arrive and off load her cargo of pet supplies. As she waits, she discovers an unmarked package mixed in with her cargo. Marie can't resist opening the box, learning it contains far more than pet food. The box is filled with drugs and fills her with fear. She snatches up Homer the three-legged rabbit that is destined to be a snake's dinner and abandons the plane just as her contact arrives. Maria, desperate to escape the drug dealers, borrows a car and charges into the unknown Oregon wilderness.
Racing into the One Word animal sanctuary, she crashes into Cy Sheridan's stream and his life. Cy takes Maria in and introduces this city girl to his idyllic life among the animals. In return, she involves Cy in her plight and together they must evade her drug-smuggling client who thinks Maria took something of value when she fled. And I'm not talking about Homer. What follows is an intense, suspenseful read.
Killer Cargo opens with a bang and is filled with nail-biting scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat leaving you to wonder if either Cy or Maria with be harmed. The romance is sweet and natural as the pair work through past emotional baggage that threatens to keep them apart. Both characters are likeable and believable causing the reader to cheer for them and hope they get together. And, the pair is surrounded by a unique and quirky supporting cast that keeps the reading interesting.
