Rooted in Danger

Terry Odell. Five Star, $25.95 (388p) ISBN 978-1-4328-2585-0
Odell’s third Blackthorne Inc. romantic suspense (after Danger in Deer Ridge) sizzles as an heiress finds romance with an undercover operative. Foster “Fozzie” Mahew is assigned to find Victoria Hamilton, a young woman who has decided she doesn’t want anything to do with her extremely wealthy father. When Fozzie locates Torie in a remote cabin in Oregon, he is surprised to discover that others are on her trail, and what begins as a mission to return Torie to her father turns into a desperate attempt to outrun her pursuers. Along the way, Fozzie and Torie uncover hints that Torie’s best friend, Kathy, was murdered—and Torie, who was continuing Kathy’s scientific work, may be next. The suspense is an ever-present force, with danger enhancing the sensual and very real romance between a most unlikely couple. Agency: Tekno Books. (May)
