Is someone watching her?
Roxie Whitaker is struggling to make her grandmother’s real estate business a success. When her coastal home is burglarized, her rosy worldview dims. Atlanta security expert Sloan Harding distracts her from her troubles, but is Mossy Bog’s former bad boy serious about her?
Never one to shy away from muddy waters, Sloan is determined to find his alleged missing inheritance. Sparks fly as he enters into a business arrangement with Roxie to oversee the restoration of his childhood home. With her help, Sloan resurrects old secrets while a dangerous predator stalks them.
When passion meets danger, will love win the day?
Bad boy gone good? And having feelings for her, could it be? Roxie can't help but be drawn to Sloan, that's for sure. And then starts the strange troubles, transactions made in her name and on her credit that she has nothing to do with. Things appearing in her yard that she didn't buy. And her ever-growing attraction for a man who will test her emotions and tell her things she may not want to hear.
I enjoyed Muddy Waters. The characters and setting create a perfect scene in my mind as I read. Roxie didn't want to feel an attraction to Sloan, and reading about him breaking down her walls slowly was quite a ride. With just the right blend of suspense and tension to make the reader’s heart pound faster. Maggie Toussaint writes about a small town, big characters and real suspense.
If you like suspense weaved in your romance, then go visit Mossy Bog in this delightful story.
