An ex-patriot American reporter living in England, Casey Rowan wakes to find one best friend murdered and another seriously injured. Casey is determined to find the killer, despite running afoul of the detective in charge of the case—a blue-eyed Scot named Rod Carlisle, who considers her a prime suspect. As Casey gets closer to the truth, losing her heart to the sexy cop isn’t the only thing she risks. Now her life is danger, too.
Rod has no patience with civilians who interfere in police matters, even hot little numbers like Casey. Though he tries to keep things professional between, Casey’s beauty and spunk are hard to resist. Rod warns her that what she’s doing is dangerous, but she refuses to listen. Can he find the killer before Casey becomes the next victim?
About The Author:
Maggi Andersen and her lawyer husband are empty nesters, living in the country outside Sydney, Australia, with their cat and the demanding wildlife. Parrots demand seed, possums demand fruit, and ducks visit from the stream at the bottom of the garden.
Andersen always felt she was meant to be a writer, but raising three children and studying for a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Arts in Creative Writing degree came first. Georgette Heyer has strongly influenced her historical romances. Her love of romantic suspense came from Mary Stewart and Victoria Holt.
Her current favorite writers are Elizabeth George and Sue Grafton. In her spare time, Maggi enjoys reading and watching movies. She swims and goes to the gym to keep fit. Her novel, Murder in Devon, will be released by Black Opal Books in Spring 2012.
Maggi Andersen’s Murder In Devon is a great mysterious murderous suspense story that will instantly capture you with the prologue and hold you until the very last page. From start to finish, you get the thrills of mystery and twists of suspense as you follow the English detectives and Casey on a ride of who-dun-it’s and why are they still wanting to do it to Casey.
After a breakup in America that left Casey Rowan down and depressed, she returned to England to stay with her two best friends, Don and Tessa. What she found the next morning was not something anyone should ever have to encounter. One friend dead, and another rushed to the hospital to be saved, Casey can’t understand who or why someone would do this to her loving best friends. After a breakup like she had and now this, what’s next for this journalist?
Detective Chief Inspector Rod Carlisle enters the picture and can’t help but wonder why Casey is really there. And, piecing pieces to the puzzle together, he can’t help but think of her as the only person capable at the time of murdering her best friend. Was it a murderous love triangle? Was it jealousy? What caused her best friend to be murdered and another left for dead? And why can’t he stop feeling the attraction to the beautiful journalist?
Casey won’t stop until she knows who killed her best friend and left her other one for dead. Even when her life is threatened and she becomes a target. Will her attraction to the handsome Scotsman detective help her……or hinder her?
This was definitely a 4 Book worthy book, and one that I highly recommend to all who love a great murder mystery! With twists, turns and romance, this book will keep you captivated and on the edge of your seat! Well done, Ms. Andersen!
