When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.
What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States.
What I liked: This is the third book I've read by Rachel Grant and she keeps me wanting more. Body of Evidence has a lot of twists and turns that keeps the story moving right along. I really enjoyed how Ms Grant turned my thoughts on their side. I had a picture of all the bad guys and was surprised by the conclusion of the story.
Mara is a bit different from the previous heroines in Ms Grant's books. She seems more open and optimistic. I like the depth in her character. Curt was not my favorite hero but I'm not sure I can put my finger on why. It was nice to see a character from a previous book make an appearance.
What I didn't like: The whole novel was entertaining but the ending was a bit abrupt for me. Everything is happening and then, it's over. I mean, I know all books have to end but not so easily or quickly. That's me trying to find something I didn't like.
If you like romantic suspense, you will enjoy all Ms Grant's work. Not quick reads but entertaining and of course, suspenseful.
This is an indie book and the paperback price reflects that at $10.43 but the Kindle version is well worth the price of $3.99
