Title: A Dose of Danger

Author: Kim McMahill

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

When researcher Grace Talbot and her team discover a possible solution for weight loss they are targeted by a group dedicated to controlling the multi-billion dollar a year diet-product industry. Her unsanctioned testing methods bring tragedy to the family ranch and the attention of the local sheriff’s deputy. With her colleagues either dead, missing, or on the run she soon realizes she must trust the deputy with her life, but can she trust him with her heart?

My Review:

Someone wants Grace Talbot dead and no one is safe in this thrilling romantic suspense.

Grace Talbot is a researcher who might’ve discovered a weight-loss medicine for animals but she needs more time to make sure it’s safe. Meanwhile, there’s a fire at her uncle’s ranch. One man dead and her uncle in the hospital, Grace races out of work to be with her uncle.

She meets a handsome deputy and they soon become close. He’s investigating the fire and the murder of the ranch hand. But the more he’s around Grace, the more he’s attracted to her. She’s spunky, smart and beautiful, not to mention brave.

After several failed attempts, a group of men come to finish off Grace before she reveals the truth about the supposed animal drug. Can Grace survive these hitmen or will the group responsible for controlling the diet-product industry kill her before she publishes her findings?

I know I say this a lot but I love romantic suspense! This book is even more thrilling than the premise. There’s action from the very beginning and I was gripping my e-reader tightly the whole time I was reading. Filled with intense scenes, complex characters and a plot worthy of being on the big screen, A Dose of Danger is superb!

One of the things I didn’t care for was that I knew who the bad guys from the beginning. We get a glimpse into their agenda from the start and there wasn’t a surprise plot twist that I personally love in suspense. It’s a preference on my part, as a reader, and not a knock on the author.

This was my first book by Kim and it won’t be my last. She has a talent for weaving action and romance all in the same breath. Her characters reacted realistically and I was never bored. I loved the romance that blossomed between Grace and Logan.

I talked with Kim and she informed me she just signed the sequel, which makes me very happy! I can’t wait to read it.

Favorite Character:

Grace. I loved how strong and logical she is while still being vulnerable. As a reader, I get to experience her reactions to circumstances in a realistic way. I appreciate how authentic she is and while trying to be brave, she leans on Logan in times of weakness. She also is a huge animal lover which makes me happy. * smiles *

Favorite Quote:

Even without his heavy coat on, he knew he would be burning just as hot. She fit against him like they were made for each other. When he finally let her go she looked up at him with a wicked smile that made him itch to grab for her again.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
