Deadlock Blog Tour


Diann Mills

Two murders have rocked the city of Houston. Are they the work of a serial killer, or is a copycat trying to get away with murder?
That is the question facing Special Agent Bethany Sanchez, who is eager for her new assignment in violent crimes but anxious about meeting her new partner. Special Agent Thatcher Graves once arrested her brother, and he has a reputation for being a maverick. Plus, their investigative styles couldn’t be more opposite: he operates on instinct, while she goes by the book.
When hot leads soon fizzle out, their differences threaten to leave them deadlocked. But an attempt on their lives turns up the heat and brings them closer together, and a third victim might yield the clue that will help them zero in on a killer. This could be the case of their careers . . . if they can survive long enough to solve it.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*Mariela's Four Star Review*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* I enjoy reading a book about murder, mystery, and solving. This book had it all and on top of it an unexpected romance. Can two opposite people discover to fit together and become a dynamic duel? Can one overcome obstacles to find the right answer? I love seeing Thatcher and Bethany interact with each other, and wonder if it will be more than becoming work partners. You two will be on edge trying to discover what's going on, and seeing how different they work. The murder they must solve will leave you asking questions as they are. I enjoy the way the writing is bringing the story into play, and the background of both is great. Writer has a nice style of making you imagine what's going on, and the hour of day with official day is a great setting for the scenes. I love reading this book, and look forward to more. This writer definitely catches your attention, and brings in some truths into it. So, if you love books about detectives, cops, agents, and romance this one is a great one to grab. The ease of scenes works nicely. Love it.
