Michaels creatively combines suspense and romance as the chief of staff to a D.C. congressman learns that her boss has killed himself under suspicious circumstances. CJ Jansen has worked for Congressman Snapper Lewis ever since she graduated from college 12 years ago. When police find Snapper’s body in his parked car underneath his office building, they inform CJ that he has committed suicide. Unwilling to believe this and thinking that his death might be related to the man he recently argued with, CJ enlists the help of Colin Kelly, the former life partner of her dead brother. Together CJ and Colin discover that Snapper had hidden assets, and they seek the help of the FBI. As CJ gets closer to uncovering Snapper’s secrets, she has a car accident that may be the result of foul play. Forced into witness protection in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, CJ meets Derek Wellington, owner of a fishing boat business. The romance with Derek is sweet and sexy, building trust atop mutual attraction. Michaels’s highly developed skills as a storyteller are evident in the affable characters, suspenseful plot, and delightful romance. (Apr.)
