is introducing

Deadlock by Diann Mills
This book had a bit of a slow start for me. The characters are richly layered and the action is pretty quick and stays well-paced. I guess it just took me a little bit to connect with the characters. The two are as opposite as can be. He likes to fly by instinct, and she is so rule bent she comes across as rigid. Both learn that it’s when they work together using both sets of strengths that they can accomplish the most. The suspense plot was interesting and well developed. The killer is taunting them through out and keeps the pressure on in multiple ways. The romance develops fairly quickly even though both know it shouldn’t go anywhere. All in all this is a good read if you love a suspense thread with well-developed characters and the hope and promise of a romance developing at the same time.


Two murders have rocked the city of Houston. Are they the work of a serial killer, or is a copycat trying to get away with murder?

That is the question facing Special Agent Bethany Sanchez, who is eager for her new assignment in violent crimes but anxious about meeting her new partner. Special Agent Thatcher Graves once arrested her brother, and he has a reputation for being a maverick. Plus, their investigative styles couldn’t be more opposite: he operates on instinct, while she goes by the book.

When hot leads soon fizzle out, their differences threaten to leave them deadlocked. But an attempt on their lives turns up the heat and brings them closer together, and a third victim might yield the clue that will help them zero in on a killer. This could be the case of their careers . . . if they can survive long enough to solve it.
