When Chase Ryan, a popular crime TV star, turns up dead, the entire town of Solitude is shaken—but the show isn’t over yet. The confessed murderer is violently abducted on the way to the county jail, and now Detective Seth Harding must find both the killer and the kidnapper.
Seth’s investigation unearths unsavory secrets from the celebrity’s life that incriminate a cast of suspects: Chase’s family, his sleazy agent, and a fanatical stalker with a troubled thirteen-year-old daughter. When that same teen disappears from her temporary foster home, Seth’s wife, social worker Carly Taylor, is drawn into the search.
Dodging paparazzi and peril, Seth and Carly track the girl. But as they get closer to uncovering the truth, the abductor sets the stage for a chilling finale…
Stand-alone: Mostly – Can be read as a stand-alone but the mystery begins in Death and Her Devotion by Kendra Elliot
Part of a Series: Yes – This is book 2. Book 1 Death and Her Devotion by Kendra Elliot is already out.
Steam level: Minimal – no sexy scenes, just hints and desire by the main characters (who are married).
Burned by Her Devotion begins the day after Death and Her Devotion ends. Seth has taken over the case and is in charge of taking/transferring the suspect from holding to jail. The action begins when they are run off the road and the suspect goes missing. The action only continues to escalate from there and the chase is on to find this person (No spoilers here from the first book). Then someone else disappears and the search widens and and tensions escalate in this race against the clock. Burned by Her Devotion is an action-packed, fast-paced mystery filled with twists and turns that left me breathless and on the edge of my seat. Unlike the first book – I didn’t feel like I needed to read the Rogue River and Rogue Winter series to fully engage in this book and the characters. Reading Death and Her Devotion first only made this book that much better.
I received this book for free from the author/publisher via NetGalley. I am voluntarily giving an honest review.
This book is scheduled to be release November 1, 2016
