On the verge of her long-sought career breakthrough, singer Isbel Vargas has just completed the performance of a lifetime when a kidnapper demands a ransom for her father. Thanks to his car theft and antiquities operation, her father will be arrested if she involves the Acapulco police. Who can she turn to?
Isbel’s ex-boyfriend, Cane Mullins, is once again south of the border, purportedly tracking down his beloved Camaro, a vintage street rod stolen years before by her father. Cane gets more than he bargains for, though, when he again crosses paths with the exquisite singer. Chased at high speed through the Sierra Madres, the former lovers search for Isbel’s father and a priceless sword he has hidden away, the sole surviving Aztec maquahuitl, while sparks fly and passion reignites. But can Isbel trust Cane again…with her heart?
Genre: Mystery – Romantic Suspense, Second-Chance
Stand Alone: Yes
Part of a Series: No
Steam Level – Warm
A Serenade to Die For starts out with a bang and continues from there. The story sucks you in and doesn’t let go. There are so many twists and turns, alliances and betrayals you don’t know who to trust. Although billed as a romantic suspense, it’s definitely more of a mystery/thriller with romantic elements and Cane and Isbel get to know each other again after ten years apart. This book is well=written and gripping but I felt my attention wandering at times. I also kind of felt like the resolution with Tavio and another character (not saying who) felt rushed and skimmed over. However some character got their just desserts and that was awesome! Overall, a good book that keeps you guessing throughout.
I received an advanced copy of this book and am voluntarily giving an honest review.
