Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is:


Amazon | Goodreads

“I think they might be keeping dead bodies in their condo!”

I just recently read an early copy of this one and will be sharing my full review soon, but this one officially releases in a few days on January 7 and it’s another awesome read by Rachel Dylan. I highly recommend it!

About the Book:

When elite members of the military are murdered on the streets of Washington, DC, FBI Special Agent Bailey Ryan and NCIS Special Agent Marco Agostini must work together to bring the perpetrator to justice. Unfortunately, all evidence points to a Navy SEAL sniper whom Bailey refuses to believe is guilty.

When Bailey and Marco start to connect the dots between the victims, including a link to a powerful defense contractor, they wonder if there’s a deeper cover-up at play. Then Bailey is targeted, and it becomes clear that someone is willing to kill to keep their dark secrets.

With the stakes getting higher by the moment in a twisted conspiracy, there’s a rush against the clock to determine whom they can really trust. As allies turn to enemies, the biggest secret yet to be uncovered could be the end of all of them.

    Happy Friday! My first line is from “Because of Him” by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    “Kieran Sutherland only just managed to keep from lifting his arm and elbowing the detective seated beside him in the face.”

    On my blog I’m sharing the first line from Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green: Currently I’m reading An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz. It’s AMAZING!!!

    “The field of winter wheat was sun-drenched and silent, the heated August air already blackened by buzzards.”
