Now that Miners Bend has discovered the identity of its woman snatcher and started a manhunt for the hiding killer, their story catches the interest of journalist Bailey Fortune. Wanting to write her first biography about him, she comes to Miners Bend as a woman on a mission. Now if only she could charm a couple of murder scene shots from local photographer Shyler Daggert without becoming too distracted by his ceaseless seduction attempts, she’d be on the right track. Then again, flirting with his cousin, Zane Bromin the sexy librarian, isn’t keeping her focused all that well either. What’s worse, both men want her in return, and she can’t seem to choose between them.
Then a third, evil man decides he wants her too. The Snatcher throws a wrench into her grand novelist plans when he decides to give her his exclusive, intent to make her his next victim in the process.
Having read three books of this series, I couldn’t wait to read this one and I’ve got to say it didn’t disappoint. The plot was intriguing from the very first chapter and pulled me in as a reader because Bailey was such a flirt after having met Zane first and then Shyler not much later. The dialogue was hilarious at times and oh so serious at others as the main characters got to know each other. I especially liked the way Bailey went about flirting with Zane when she first met him, but there’s no way I can reveal any details. So I guess readers will just have to find some quiet time if they wish to learn about the heroine’s seductive prowess. The sex scenes were hot and steamy enough to fog glasses if a reader wears them. Then again, the heroine is one lucky woman. Who wouldn’t want two men vying for her attention, especially when said men are so sexy? What I liked so much about Bailey was her stance on her having both men or neither, and making Shyler and Zane decide whether they wanted her enough or not to make it happen. While with the two men, I liked how much they wanted to keep Bailey safe the second they knew the snatcher had her in his sights and were willing to finally see that a threesome wasn’t such a bad thing to happen between them. In fact, it was the right thing.
In conclusion, although this story didn’t draw me in as much as the last book in this series did, it still was a good read that ended quite well and left it nicely open for a final instalment. One in which I hope the Mind Bender’s woman snatcher can never hurt another woman again.
