Whitney Marshall thought that taking over her cousin's dog walking business was a great way to get over the painful end of her marriage. Then she learns that Miranda lied about her own upcoming marriage and the owner of the house she is living in is dead and his heir has moved in to prove his uncle was murdered. The most important question is who wants her dead too and why.
Wealthy Calvin Hunter flies his nephew Adam to his villa on the Greek Isle of Siros in a private plane because he needs to speak with him. Calvin, who has such limited ties with his San Diego family members that he did not even attend his half-brother's funeral, informs Adam that if he dies, he is to investigate the cause. Adam, a former cop turned private investigator, agrees though the request seems odd as his uncle explains nothing further.
Two months later Adam learns his Uncle Calvin died so unable to accept coincidence; he begins inquiries into the death. Whitney Marshall takes over her missing cousin Miranda's dog caring duties which include living in a caretaker cottage on Calvin's estate in San Diego. When her new abode is bombed, Adam and she assume her cousin is the target and there is a tie to the late Calvin and his money, but nothing except the canines linking anyone. Adam vows to keep the woman he is falling in love with safe and learn who killed his uncle as he believes a murder occurred and that same person is responsible for the caretaker cottage bombing.
KISS OF DEATH is an exciting action-packed romantic private investigative thriller starring two likable believable protagonists who with every step together fall deep in love and even deeper in danger from an unidentified adversary for unknown reasons except the unclear nebulous connection to Calvin. The story line grips the audience from the opening line of "Adam Hunter, You're dead" and never slows down through several intriguing twists including canine capers until the final confrontation. Meryl Sawyer further cements her growing reputation as one of top guns of romantic suspense (see HALF PAST DEAD).
Great book! Non-stop action with a good romance included!
Meryl Sawyer has outdone herself on this one. Great read. very entertaining. The suspense is great. Must read.
Great Book. What a mystery I never even considered the ending. I Like that kind.
There were a lot of different things going on,
and they all intertwined in a way that left you
turning pages trying to find out how they all
came together. The ending tied everything up very nicely.
Excellent book and definitely well worth the read!
A good suspenseful story with great characters,
however, the book focus is on story and main characters
romance could have been hotter [for some].
Good all around read. Fast paced with thrills.
Very good story, much like most of Meryl Sawyers other books, I think you will enjoy this book, especially if you are a dog lover.
Meryl Sawyer never disappoints.
great read, some really cute dogs as characters
Passion, and suspense in California--present day
