latest, a pulse-pounding, pitch-perfect addition to the
romantic-suspense genre...the real hook is the nimble tone that shifts
from breezy to thrilling and back again with masterful precision.
Terrific escapist entertainment, as good as anything in Janet
Evanovich's oeuvre." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Named one of Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2012!
crime novelist, Cassie Alvarez, aka Cassie Lang, had murder on her mind
when she walked into Rory's Bar under dressed and under cover to
research her latest crime novel. Researching the cool, blue-eyed and
dashingly handsome man at the end of the bar stirred her senses more
than she wanted to admit. But was this man of leather armor all he
appeared to be?
Playing White Knight to an innocent wasn't how
Detective Jake Santos planned to spend his time under cover. But there
was no way "CJ" was what she claimed to be and that nagging tightness in
Jake's chest told him he'd better take her home to safety and leave it
at that. Then the barroom exploded with gunfire, leaving a trail of dead
that includes a notorious Providence crime boss and an undercover FBI
agent. When Cassie's name is leaked to the media as the only witness to
the grisly murders, Cassie insists she only trusts Jake to protect her.
FBI wants their star witness happy and will do anything to make sure
Cassie testifies. But it is clear to Jake that the shooter isn't the
only person who wants Cassie dead. Not knowing who to trust, he vows to
protect Cassie at all cost despite the fact that guarding the beautiful
novelist is a serious distraction.
MATERIAL WITNESS is the
follow-up Romantic Suspense Novel by Lisa Mondello's Yuletide Protector
and is book 1 of her new Heroes of Providence series.
