"Romantic suspense readers will enjoy this novel."
Allen Holloway paid abusive Troy Russell to divorce and
leave his pregnant daughter Jenny. Fifteen years later,
Troy has returned for a new handout and is low enough to
use his own son as a pawn for cash. Rather than turn to
her father, Jenny flees to Santa Fe to start anew.
Former cop Hunter Calgary obsessively tracks Troy
because he believes the thug killed his sister so Allen
asks him to keep safe his beloved daughter and grandson.
Hunter vows to make sure that the snake does not harm the
two Holloways, but soon finds himself in love with Jenny.
However, he knows anything permanent is doomed because once
she learns the truth as to why he is here she will flee.
Still, he risks his life to keep the duo unharmed from a
malevolent individual who does not mind committing homicide
to gain easy money.
Romantic suspense readers will enjoy Janelle Taylor's
latest thriller IN TOO DEEP because the story line never
slows down until the end. The estrangement between the two
older generations of Holloways seems forced as Jenny
refuses to turn to her father for help even with the return
of her dangerous former husband. Plus the obvious contrast
between the two key males with Troy the psychopath vs.
Hunter the hero is a bit too blatant, but on the other
hand, the audience will root for Jenny's champion to
triumph because he is such a nice person. Ms. Taylor has
written an engaging damsel in distress tale that will
delight her fans.
