Details: Loosely connected to HEARTBREAKER and MERCY)
Avery is supposed to join her aunt Carrie in an exclusive spa in Aspen. But when Avery arrives, there's no sign of her aunt, and the reservations for their stay have been cancelled by someone. As have the reservations for two more women.
Then while still in the spa, trying to get information, Avery receives a call from an unknown woman, telling her to find her aunt before... "Boom".
Avery has no idea what or whom she's up against, but Jean Paul Renard, handsome man of mystery, does. The brain behind whatever is going on is Monk; a professional killer Jean Paul has been after for a long time. Monk has always worked alone, but he has now teamed up with a mystery woman with something against Avery and her aunt, for some reason.
And while Carrie and her fellow victims, desperately try to avoid being blown up, Avery and John Paul have to avoid being killed by Monk, while trying to safe Avery's aunt.
The twists and turns in this book were not limited to the final chapters, but started earlier on, and this is only one of the reasons this book kept me reading on the edge of my seat.
This book is loosely linked to both Heartbreaker and Mercy, as they were loosely linked to each other, and is equally good as the previous two. I really enjoy these books by Garwood and hope I'll be able to find the next two soon.
