"Exciting romantic suspense"
Kellie Delaney loves her widowed brother and treats his son
as if she gave birth to the lad. The two male Delaneys are
everything to Kellie until the police inform her that her
two beloved relatives died in a car crash in Wales.
Wrecking her already shattered psyche, she learns the
collision was deliberate to eliminate Connor, who worked
Kellie obsesses over learning why her brother was marked
for death. She learns of a Tom Whelan of Ireland though
she cannot see his connection to her sibling, but assumes
he is probably the killer. When Kellie meets Tom, she
realizes he is not what she expected as he is a caring
person that she is half in love with even though he is
married. When his wife leaves prison, Tom's IRA past
surfaces placing Kellie, the woman he now loves, in peril,
especially since she hides her agenda from everyone.
THE DELANEY WOMAN is an exciting romantic suspense tale
that includes a powerful cast especially the grieving
heroine who readers will empathize with and understand her
motives. Though issue resolution is a bit too simplistic,
the story line moves rapidly forward yet contains depth so
that the reader comprehends the complexities and contrasts
of opinions. Secondary characters strengthen the plot so
the appreciative audience receives a fine thriller.
