Review by Larkspur
Memories of one magical night had kept Evan Jorgenson sane during his tour in Iraq. When he meets Cassie Hamilton again in Lake Placid, he yearns to pick up where they left off. She deserves more than a shell-shocked soldier. But Cassie’s in danger, and in order to keep her safe, he’s jeopardizing not only his job as a NYS police officer, but a dream promotion. If only she’d talk about what happened in L.A… After three years away, the spunky, young chocolatier is back in Dewitt, NY rebuilding her life in order to regain custody of her young daughter. But Cassie has a secret bigger than nibbling chocolate kisses while she works. When Evan discovers her terrible secret, can he put aside his pride and find the sweetest thing of all, true love, or will he leave her forever?
Susan St. Thomas’s Meltdown ROCKS!! It’s a love story of two tortured souls Cassie and Evan, filled with everything that makes a great romantic suspense read. It will blow your socks off.
Not only did I love this story, I literally couldn’t put it down once I started reading it. There is so much nail biting, edge of your seat action suspense that you’ll need to wipe the sweat of your brow often. The love scenes are so hot that they could speed up global warming and tender enough that you need tissues close at hand, and should be a mandatory manual for all prospective lovers.
It has wonderfully defined and developed characters not only the hero and heroine, but an equally great supporting cast. Her writing style was entertaining and descriptive enough that I could actually see the scenes being depicted. With so much going on at any given time in the story you never loose track of where she wanted the reader to go.
So if you’re opposed to an excellent read, spicy love scenes, great suspense, wonderful characters and a definite best seller then this is not the book for you. For the rest of you out there...well, what are you waiting for? Grab a copy for yourself.
