Bethany invites the group for breakfast the following
morning. She plans to serve an assortment of English
muffins with jelly and lots of coffee. DiAnn's winner
this month will receive a Berry Box of assorted
muffins and jelly and a personalized copy of DEADLOCK for
a $45.00 value. Just answer the question below and enter
for the random drawing.
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.
DEADLOCK is the third book in my FBI: Houston series<.
Special Agents Bethany Sanchez and Thatcher Graves have
taken me on a thrilling adventure. I was concerned about
them with so many obstacles in the way of their personal,
physiological, and professional lives. But they remained
true to hero and heroine status, fearless in the face of
danger and never victims.
At times, I wanted to pull Bethany out of the family
dynamics that stalked her every step. But I wanted to
show how those we love can hurt us the deepest. She
practiced unconditional love with a tough, truth element.
Those challenges made her stronger, and she believed it
was worth the risk.
Thatcher dealt with a bad-boy reputation, and most of it
was true. Although he’d chosen to change his image, how
to accomplish it remained the most difficult task.
Running wasn’t his style, and a claim to new morals left
too many people skeptical.
How do perfectionist Bethany and free-thinker Thatcher
work together? Optimistically, each could compliment the
other. Realistically, they could despise the other. Which
will they choose in light of a serial murder case before
one of them is killed?
I hope you enjoy Bethany’s and Thatcher’s journey in
