MISTLETOE AND MURDER
Jenna Ryan's crisp, witty dialogue and suspenseful plot shine in this tale of revenge and murder. Cop Jacob Knight is a loner, under department scrutiny and in the crosshairs of a man who believes Jacob murdered his wife. Former cop Roanna Gray stopped the man from killing Jacob years ago and she's next in the line of fire. As the violence escalates, they only have each other to trust to stay alive. Mistletoe and Murder (4.5) is a first-rate romantic suspense with multidimensional characters and a multilayered plot.
