Did You Miss Me by Karen Rose
Genre: Adult/Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: February 5, 2013
Baltimore prosecutor Daphne Montgomery pulled herself out of a damaged past to build a solid life for herself and her son. But after she helps to convict a killer, her confidence is shattered once again by the news that her son has been kidnapped.
Daphne believes it’s connected to the recent high-profile trial, and at first FBI special agent Joseph Carter agrees. But together they find the reality to be even more troubling, and it runs deeper than Daphne fears. With her son’s life in jeopardy, she must unlock a dreadful secret about her past—and confront a truth that will change everything for those closest to her. And, if she survives, threaten the lives of everyone she loves.
Short review because I’m lazy.
Karen Rose has always been my to-go-to author when it comes to romantic suspense and as always, she did not disappoint.
I’ve been dying (harhar) to read this book ever since I’ve read about Daphne’s crazy hairdo and the taciturn FBI agent, Joseph. Karen Rose knows how to put her readers on edge and is a master when it comes to shitting you with gory scenes.
The romance is perfectly balanced with the thrill. It doesn’t steal the limelight for the suspense and at the same time, you can still call this a “romantic suspense” because the romance is just around the corner.
Can be read as a standalone but better if you read book # 10 first to know the characters better. ♥
