Itís my birthday month and I treated myself to a Nook upgrade. I love my new
Nook Color. I can even read it in the bright sunlight, which I know from getting
up at 6:00am to get the dogs to avoid the heat. Otherwise, I would have to wait
until October to test that feature out. Iím sure my Nook will get a good workout
as I make my way through this monthís selection of romantic suspense.
I was excited to get a sneak peak at Julie Garwoodís THE IDEAL MAN as Ms.
Garwood is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. Her latest book did
not disappoint. The story grabbed my attention right from the start with the
shooting of an FBI agent during an attempt to capture the Landrys (known weapons
dealers), emergency surgery, and instant attraction between Dr. Ellie Sullivan
and FBI agent Max Daniels. Ellie witnessed the shooting and stepped in to help.
Max is deeply involved in the investigation and must protect Ellie from the
fate that has befallen past witnesses to the Landrysí crimes.
