INTO THE CORNER
INTO THE CORNER (3) by Marisa Carroll: Detective Lucas Haines needs to become a NASCAR insider to continue his murder investigation, so he approaches investigative reporter Mattie Clayton for assistance. Motivated to help find the killer of her dear friend, Mattie agrees to introduce Lucas as her love interest at various NASCAR events, providing he aids her with an investigation of her own. Scarred from growing up in fractured families, both Mattie and Lucas must learn to work as a team. Unforgettable kisses notwithstanding, neither one expects to discover love along the way. Too bad this novel is marred by a slow-moving, predictable plot and a lackluster romance.
