IF LOOKS COULD CHILL
Bruhns writes wonderfully complicated and engaging stories. The only caveat is that there are so many characters and parallel stories going on, you almost need a notebook to keep track
of them all. Despite the confusion, each character is well developed and engaging enough to motivate readers to push through and seek the resolution.
Marc Lafayette is on a mission -- to divert Tara's attention from what's going on in the swamp. While he'd rather be hunting down the terrorists, Marc finds Tara's company a whole lot more intriguing than he anticipated. But as the sparks fly and passion heats up, the terrorists move into action. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
