One Wrong Move | Dani Pettrey 

#JeopardyFalls #privateinvestigator #thriller #romanticsuspense

Taunting riddles.
A deadly string of heists.
Two broken hearts trapped in a killer’s game.

Christian O’Brady was pulled into a life of crime at a young age by his con artist parents. Now making amends for his corrupt past, he has become one of the country’s foremost security experts. When a string of Southwestern art heists targets one of the galleries Christian secured, he is paired up with a gifted insurance investigator who has her own checkered past.

Andi Forester was a brilliant FBI forensic analyst until one of her colleagues destroyed her career, blaming her for mishandling evidence. She now puts those skills to work investigating insurance fraud, and this latest high-stakes case will test her gift to the limit. Drawn deep into a dangerous game with an opponent bent on revenge, Christian and Andi are in a race against the clock to catch him, but the perpetrator’s game is far from finished, and one wrong move could be the death of them both.

A couple of years ago, I discovered authors who were blending my two favorite genres – romance and thriller/suspense. Dani Pettrey has knocked it out of the park with this book! I was completely absorbed within a few chapters and even ordered out for dinner because I couldn’t stop reading. The small town setting provided a sense of security — at least until trouble rolled in.

Every scene is very balanced, providing an excellent atmosphere for absorbing emotions as the tension builds and leaves that bit of tingling in your neck as the suspense hangs around. The hint of romance adds a level of comfort that gets you to let your guard down. We get to meet siblings and family members of the characters, opening the door for deeper connections to our characters.

The setting is a unique one to me as I don’t often read plots involving art heists – especially those with such suspense! Foundations of Christianity are carefully woven into pieces of the story and giving the foundation of faith amidst the darkness of the crime. One of my favorite parts was getting a look at the situation from the villains view. It’s not often that we get this insight and it only made me want more.

Excited to read more of this upcoming series!! It’s going to be one that will truly make an impression!
