Title: Fatal Hunt

Author: Michelle Godard-Richer

Genre: Romantic Thriller

Book Blurb:

After being widowed and surviving the wrath of a serial killer, Jessica believes her misfortunes are over. She’s reunited with her first love, Jon, and together, with her son Bryce, and a baby on the way, they’re living their happily ever after on their ranch in Montana. That is until secrets, lies, and a formidable foe from Jon’s past emerge to shake the foundation of their relationship, forcing them to flee for their lives.

A decade earlier, Jon worked undercover for the FBI. He infiltrated Hugh Jones’ Kansas City Mob, and almost destroyed his empire. Unaware of the breach in his own defenses, Hugh, obsessed with revenge, unleashes every weapon in his arsenal, targeting those Jon loves the most.

My Review:

On the run from an obsessed maniac, Jessica and Jon will stop at nothing to protect their family. Jessica’s lived through so much pain, so much death, she thinks it’s all in the past. She married Jon, her first love, and they share a peaceful life with her son and she’s pregnant in the wilds of Montana. She never thought she’d be terrified again but Jon’s past along with long-buried secrets stalk their family. Their once-firm relationship is shaken off its foundation. Jessica doesn’t know who to trust or how to protect her family. She does what her instincts tell her: run. The hunt is on, and the hunter is a diabolical mob boss with an army of killers chasing them. Revenge is his game, and all Jessica wants is to survive. Can Jessica protect her family or has time run out?

Fatal Hunt is a spine-tingling romantic thriller I devoured. There are three things I look for in a romantic thriller: a believable plot, engaging characters, and amped-up suspense. This book nails these three elements. The plot is believable and deals with criminal activity ripped from the headlines. The characters are engrossing, and I connected with Jessica right away. Jon has some serious deception going on and it drove the plot. The bad guys are downright evil and I hated them with every page I read. The secondary characters filled out the cast nicely and added an additional level of tension to the story. The suspense was first-rate and Michelle Godard-Richer layered on the suspense through classic methods which kicked up my adrenaline. As I read each chapter, I became so invested in the story and the characters, I couldn’t help but whip through the pages. My heart raced and I couldn’t stop reading. Michelle Godard-Richer has penned a superb romantic thriller and I can’t wait to read more from her. If you’re a fan of this genre, pick up Fatal Hunt. Highly recommend!

My Rating: 5+ stars

Author Biography:

Growing up as an only child in a small town, I dreamed of becoming an author. My father laughed and said okay, but you might be broke. I shrugged my shoulders and kept clacking on the keyboard of our home PC, delighted when my words appeared on the small monitor, a staple of early ’90s technology.

In high school, when it was time to decide on a future career, I chose to pursue an Honours Degree in Criminology at the University of Ottawa, but at the back

of my mind, the dream of writing for a living persisted.

Fast forward fifteen years, and as a happily married woman and proud mother to two children, four dogs, and a cat, my dream came true. For information on upcoming releases please visit my website:
