Book Blurb:

Music is Emma Grant's world. Smuggling, blackmail, and murder are her family's. Emma has a deep love of music and has reached international acclaim for her sound engineering. She has the opportunity of a lifetime knocking on her door. A chance to inherit the 100-year-old recording studio owned by her family. But nothing good has ever reached her without a catch.

Her grandfather Richard offers her a deal that will change her life forever. After she runs the studio for half a decade, she will have to join Richard’s ‘private business for several months. Richard is a man who has the city at his fingertips. His uncanny aura as a flourishing tycoon has everyone’s attention. But what remains a mystery is the criminal activities he conceals under the disguise of being a reputable businessman.

Emma quickly agrees to Richard's offer, but after five years, times change, and so do her priorities. At 29, Emma unlocks her potential as an audio engineer, rewarded with all the success in the world. With her life dedicated to her music passion, she has little interest in joining Richard’s secret criminal empire - even for several months. Given her dedication to work and juggling her relationship with a handsome rock star, Emma ignores her Grandfather's demands.

Emma’s impulsive and naïve decision pushes her into a world with no happy endings. Her refusal to give in pushes Richard to deploy his plan, threatening her loved ones. With no means to escape, Emma gives in, joining the infamous syndicate run by her grandfather. An organization that is all about jewel smuggling, murder, and crimes.

A Smuggler’s Last Song is a fast-paced, compelling thriller. With murder, mystery, family, and betrayal, this book has everything you can ask for. Plus a little fun and romance.

My Review:

Get your popcorn ready for this action-packed suspense-filled adventure! When you read this, you may believe you should keep your friends close and your family far away. With family like this, who needs enemies?

Right from the start, the conflict and intensity grows. The book simply races along at a fretful pace. There is no let down for the reader. The reader just wants more, and this book delivers it in spades!

A remarkable family is presented in great detail. The character building is fantastic. The book is a fast and easy read. I opened the book and didn't stop until I had finished it. Now I can't wait to read book two of the great series.

If you are a fan of really enjoyable romantic suspense, then this book is for you! You will want to put this on your to be read list right away. Set aside some quality reading time for taking on this series. The first book is amazing, let's get to book two next!
