OMgosh! I enjoyed this one! Karen Robards weaves a tale of suspense and romance (with just the right amount of each). Maddie Fitzgerald is attacked in a New Orleans hotel and FBI Agent Sam McCabe thinks that she's the target of a serial killer.

Robards' writing style is an easy read, which is good because you'll be in a hurry to see what happens next.

FBI Special Agent Sam McCabe is tracking a serial killer who leaves one-word clues to the identity of his next victim. When the next clue is the name "Madeline", the search for the next victim starts. But, they're too late. In a New Orleans hotel, a woman named Madeline Fitzgerald has been murdered. But, surprisingly, there is a second woman with the exact same name staying at the hotel too. This Maddie was attacked in the middle of the night and somehow got away from the killer. In order for Sam to figure out which Maddie was the target, he needs to use her for bait to entice the serial killer out of hiding.

This is romantic suspense at it's best. Maddie doesn't trust the FBI because of things in her past and really thinks she can handle the whole situation on her own. Of course, Sam knows that isn't possible and pledges to keep her safe. Good twist as to the identity of the killer. My rating: 5 Stars.
