I loved Tracy's opening book in this Detective Series "Unexpected Love" and this one is, if anything, even better. It is a romance story but it is very much an unwanted one at first for Kyra, a waitress, who finds herself attracted at first sight to the tall detective Ben, who visits her diner right there on page 1. But Kyra wants nothing to do with cops, even though her late father was chief of police and she had once had ambitions to be a detective herself. That's one mystery for us to deal with. Outside the diner she realises that despite herself she even admires the cop's taste in old muscle cars; later we learn that Ben loves her inherited classic that she currently refuses to drive. Her brother therefore collects Kyra from the diner and they drive home; then the real drama starts as her brother starts to open up about something bothering him. Outside their home, Kyra is distracted by a note on the door to urgently visit a neighbour, then she hears a revving vehicle and before either can react her brother is gunned down in a hail of bullets in a drive-by. Another bullet, intended for Kyra hits the cop, Ben, who is on scene before she arrived and goes straight into protection mode as he sees the speeding car. Thereafter Kyra's life is in constant danger and, despite herself and her feelings, she needs the cops for protection as the mystery surrounding her brother's involvement with a local crime boss unravels.
This is an exciting story, with strong characters and their complicated interwoven lives and relationships leading to past, present and future violent events, which are revealed as Kyra can't help involving herself in sleuthing herself, despite further attempts by the crime boss to shut her up. She may be a girl in need of protection, but she is no shrinking wallflower, and Ben has his secrets, too. If you like strong heroines, this one pursued by a handsome hero and an evil villain, this read is right up your street, especially as it is FREE on Smashwords. Can't wait for the third in the series, and after you've read the first two, you will too.
