Review by Rose

Texas PI Kelly McWinter is back in action, mixing business with pleasure on a long delayed honeymoon. Providing security for a nominee at the Country Music Awards sounds like glitz and glamour, but Kelly and Gillian find themselves chasing kidnappers in California and tracking a killer in Las Vegas.

This is the first book in the new McWinter Confidential series, but apparently not the first time these characters have been together. Even with that, this was easy to follow, though I think reading the previous series with these characters (Kelly McWinter PI) would be interesting just to see how these people came together. In this book, relationships are already in place.

The romance part of this romantic suspense mainly consists of the relationship between Kelly and his bride Gillian—as they take a long delayed honeymoon (and like any honeymooners, a lot of that relationship was working out in the bedroom).

This was primarily a mystery—there were two lines of suspense: Kelly and Gillian spent some time providing security for a country star (sounded like an ideal time for a vacation/honeymoon, but kidnappers and stalkers get in the way) while on the homefront, a militia group is found nearly in their backyard.

I liked the characters – primary and secondary. These people and their relationships were the best part of the book for me. The suspense part—there were some good parts. I was a bit disappointed in the way one of them resolved itself, but not enough that I wouldn’t read more from these authors. I liked the characters that much. I’m looking forward to getting to know them better (and I’ll be checking out the backstory series as well!).
