Wow, wow, and wow! Everyone who knows me knows how much I love romantic suspense, and I'm always thrilled to add another author to my to-be-bought list. Karen Young has just earned a place towards the top with the heartwarming, heroic, suspenseful, and highly romantic tale of NEVER TELL.
For artist/designer Erica Stewart, opening a shop with her friend Jason Rowland was a dream come true. The exclusive boutique in the Galleria of Houston's high-end shops, Erica's creations of handmade jackets and quilts are being noticed by everyone who is important-brand name fashion designers, readers of the Houston Chronicle, and most especially, Lillian Trask. As the wife of Morton Trask, CEO of CentrexO and a man to be reckoned with within Houston's elitist society, Lillian has made it her life's mission of the past few years to know everything there is to know about Erica Stewart.
Erica wants only one thing-to see her business a success, and to put the past behind her. When her husband and child were killed nine years ago in a car accident, Erica's life forever changed. Not knowing who was behind the horrific crash, never seeing a perpetrator brought to justice, forced Erica into a state of mind that she never wants to revisit. Now, she has her shop, and her friendships. What she doesn't have, and has no desire in having, is a relationship with a man.
That changes when Hunter McCabe, an architect who'd rather be a cowboy, steps into Erica's store to choose a birthday present for his mother. Immediately attracted to Erica, Hunter wants nothing more than to sweep the lady off her feet. But as Erica opens her heart to Hunter, someone in the wings isn't too happy about their budding relationship-and has no attacks of conscious making their anger known in increasingly dangerous ways.
Mystery, passion, suspense, and an intriguing plot make NEVER TELL a romantic suspense delight. Karen Young has written a true winner with this highly remarkable story-one that you won't be able to put down once you've starting reading.
