I’m quite late for today’s event, but I wanted to join anyway. My featured book is She Can Scream, by Melinda Leigh, an exciting addition to the series.
Beginning: Monday, October 21st, 6:10 p.m., Coopersfield, Pennsylvania. Stalking used to be harder.
He read the display on his phone: OFF 4 MY RUN!
Thanks you, social media, for a generation of young women compelled to report their every movement to the world….
56: His grandmother sighed. “What terrible timing. I hate to see Brooke and her children alone with a violent criminal running around.”
Blurb: In one moment, high school teacher and single mother Brooke Davenport interrupts a vicious assault, saves a young woman’s life, and attracts the attention of a serial killer.
Sixteen years ago, Brooke lost her roommate to a brutal murder. Now she teaches women’s self-defense, still trying to heal from the guilt and grief that plague her. Convinced the predator knows his victims and is stalking his prey online, she is determined to find him before he strikes again. Her brother’s friend, Luke has the computer expertise to help. But Brooke’s unexpected desire for Luke complicates her investigation, and her fixation with the case provokes a deadly reaction from the killer.
Injured in terrorist bombing overseas, computer expert Luke Holloway is still haunted by flashbacks of his young assistant’s death in the explosion. But Luke can’t refuse the request of a deployed friend to look after his sister, Brooke. Taking on responsibility for Brooke’s safety threatens Luke’s tenuous recovery, especially after he develops feelings for her that transcend a promise to a friend. When Brooke saves a young girl from a brutal assault and becomes a killer’s obsession, Luke vows to protect her at all costs.
I have been following this series since the beginning, and I eagerly await each new book. What are you sharing today?
