This book, BEFORE THE DAWN, should have a warning label on
it. Do not start reading before you go to bed because you
will be up all night reading. It is not a can't put down
book ... it is a don't you dare put me down book.
Tucker Frost an F.B.I. agent who is a part of the Samantha
Dark profiling unit and Dawn Alexander find themselves face
to face again after a horrible ordeal tore them apart. Seven
years earlier Dawn had been abducted and tortured by the
"Iceman" and it was Tucker who rescued her but the damage
was done and Tucker had been forced to kill, the Iceman who
happened to be his brother, Jason Frost.
Now a copycat is in action in New Orleans, where Dawn is now
working as a private investigator. This puts fear in both of
them as Tuck is sure the Iceman is dead but Dawn is not so
sure because his body was never found after going into the
Mississippi. Now the once lovers have to work together to
solve the new case, but can they? So many secrets and so
many fears tore them apart once can they possibly be
together? Especially when it looks like someone wants to
frame Tuck in the new murders. Tuck always feared that blood
would win out but it was possible that love will win.
BEFORE THE DAWN is romantic suspense at its best. I have
always enjoyed the way author Cynthia Eden writes and her
suspense is excellent with characters that you can like,
feel what they feel and worry about them. Tuck and Dawn had
a lot of explaining to do to each other about a number of
misunderstandings and this was nicely interwoven in the
story line along with the mystery. Ms. Eden's bad guys are
either blatant, as Jason, or very sneaky in the fact that
you don't suspect them at all. I was very proud of myself, I
guessed the bad guy but, didn't figure out why until the
reveal to the readers, which was a very neat twist. I also
liked the epilogue ... it gave closure to this couple.
If you want to breathe stealing suspense, steamy and sweet
romance, bad guys, good guys, action and emotional ups and
downs BEFORE THE DAWN has got to be in your hands. If I
could put up stars for this book it would be five plus.
