"A teriffic work of romantic suspense"
Fish and Wildlife Service Agent Mark Kincaid is on
injury compensation leave while recovering from gunshot
wounds incurred during an undercover assignment. To
recuperate and remain occupied, Mark journeys to Arsanas
City, Texas where he plans to renovate the house he
inherited from his uncle.
Early one morning he hears birds chirping and looks out
his window to see Cat Randolph setting up an aviary. To
their mutual shocks Mark and Cat are attracted to one
another. However, he plans to sell the house and leave as
soon as he heals so he tries to keep away from her.
Failing to avoid Cat, they fall in love. However, he
quickly connects the case that left him injured to an
illegal bird smuggling ring here in town with his beloved's
sibling as the prime suspect.
Readers will find no trouble enjoying Eve Gaddy's
latest romantic suspense thriller though the topic of
illegal animal trafficking brings vividly to mind the
abusive methods used by smugglers though the author treads
lightly. The audience will definitely feel empathy and
support the efforts to stop this ugly practice. The story
line lures the reader into its' web from the first sentence
due to the warmth and dedication of Mark and Cat. His
dilemma between his love for Cat and his duty to catch the
smugglers adds passion to the lead male protagonist. Even
with the nasty but important underlying theme, sub-genre
fans will enjoy TROUBLE IN TEXAS and rejoice in knowing
that Ms. Gaddy has other Brothers Kincaid stories to tell.
