Promo Post: Shadow Fall by Laura Griffin

Okay, I don' t usually do posts like this, but most of you know...I'm a romantic suspense girl.

As such, I've always seen Laura Griffin's books. I figured they were good, even have a couple of them on my tbr shelf, but just recently started reading her books for review. (I read the last Tracers book, Beyond Limits, and am currently reading the upcoming Shadow Fall, which releases next week.)

Well, this is the post for all of you like me...who assumed she'd be a good read, but just haven't picked up one of her books.

Because I'm telling you right now...you need to.

Her books are SO intelligent. They weave in and out and I never know where they are going to go. I can't imagine the amount of research she does to write these. Just last night I was telling my husband that someday I hope to come close to writing this kind of deep, aggressive, maze-like suspense...but still maintain that high level of romance.

Try her. I think you'll like her.

And just in case, you're still debating, I went through this book (I'm about 2/3's of the way through reading it) and picked out my favorite scene between the hero, Liam (bodyguard/security specialist who's also a suspect) and Tara (FBI agent who's investigating a serial killer...Liam is either the killer or he knows the person who is.)



Story Overview:
In the ninth romantic suspense novel in the New York Times bestselling Tracers series, author Laura Griffin brings back her elite cadre of forensic experts as they hunt down the most brutal serial killer yet.

Special Agent Tara Rushing arrives at a grisly murder scene and quickly discovers she’s got a serial killer on her hands. The killer is meticulous, making sure to wipe up even the smallest traces of evidence…but the Delphi Center experts are on the case.

The local sheriff has a suspect all picked out—ex-Marine and current security expert Liam Wolfe. Despite all her digging, Tara knows very little about Liam when she shows up at his sprawling Texas compound, which serves as headquarters for Wolfe Security, and she’s surprised by her intense physical reaction to him.

As she and Liam grow closer, Tara finds herself depending on his skills and expertise to help her track a killer. But when another body turns up, Tara must decide if she can trust the man who’s quickly stealing her heart.


"What are the chances you could get a transfer off this case?" His gaze met hers. 

"I'd say zero."

"Doesn't your boss like you?"

"He likes me fine, which is why I don't plan to ask him."

"I think you could use a change of scenery," he said evenly.

"You're kidding, right?"

"No."

"I think you could use a reality check." She leaned closer. "I'm not your client, Liam. I don't need a bodyguard, and I don't take orders from you."

"Not orders, advice."

"That either."

Liam watched her pick at her breakfast, his expression carefully blank. But she could read it anyway, because she was learning his moods. Right now was suppressed annoyance. He couldn't tell her what to do and it was getting under his skin.

sigh...I do love overprotective alpha types.

Check Laura Griffin out. I think you'll like her style. 
Shadow Fall releases next week, September 22nd.

Btw, my full review will be up next week on release day.
