November ushers us into Thanksgiving. Huge slices of
pumpkin pie, family celebrations, and lots of laughter
over brimming hot cups of coffee.
agents Bethany Sanchez and Thatcher Graves have plenty of
work to do before celebrating. They drink plenty of
coffee to stay alert - but they do value a delicious
blend. We can find them often at Starbucks talking
through a case and searching for ways to end a crime
spree. Now and then, a spark of romance adds flavor.
Readers look forward to experiencing the story
through the eyes of a hero and heroine. On these cool
nights, curling up with a cup of coffee and a romantic
suspense might just be for you. Comment below and enter
for a chance to win two adventure mugs and a
copy of DEADLOCK by Diann
Mills, a $30 value.
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 a victim.
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 a 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
