Great review of Murder in Devon!

Amazon Review!

This book is a great mix of romance and heart stopping suspense. A beginning that hooked me from the eloquent and edgy prologue and kept me guessing throughout the entire book. American magazine journalist, Casey Rowan has just arrived at the Devon home of her two best friends, Tessa and Don. She is expecting Don to serve up a hearty English breakfast on her first morning but instead she is served up a ghastly murder and her friend, Tessa, in a pool of blood, fighting for her life.

DCI Rod Carlisle is in charge of the investigation but Casey can’t sit around waiting for him to miss vital leads. Despite Carlisle’s clear dictate that she leave the case to him, she steps into the murky waters surrounding Don’s death and places herself in danger by digging into the lives of ‘people in high places’. In his attempts to keep her safe, Carlisle’s interest in Casey takes a different turn.

I have read Maggi Andersen’s historical romances but this is my first foray into her Romantic Suspense Mysteries. She pulls off the suspense and intrigue brilliantly and had me guessing until the end. Her characters are expertly developed and come alive on the page and her vivid settings and creative descriptions take the reader into each scene together with the characters. The plot is fast paced with surprises at every turn. A wonderful book and I thoroughly recommend it.
Blurb: She wants the truth, but it may cost her more than she thinks...

An ex-patriot-American living in England, magazine reporter Casey Rowan wakes to find one best friend murdered and another seriously injured. Casey is determined to find the killer, despite running afoul of the detective in charge of the case—a blue-eyed Scot named Rod Carlisle, who considers her a prime suspect. As Casey gets closer to the truth, losing her heart to the sexy cop isn’t the only thing she risks. Now her life is danger, too.

He wants her, but he may have to choose between love and duty...

Rod has no patience with civilians who interfere in police matters, even hot little numbers like Casey. Though he tries to keep things professional, Casey’s beauty and spunk are hard to resist. He warns her that what she’s doing is dangerous, but he only succeeds in alienating her. She refuses to listen and goes off on her own with disastrous results. Now Rod’s in a race to find the killer before the woman he loves becomes the next victim.
