A Reason To Kill by C.P. Smith
Max and Mia
SO MANY LUMBERJACKS, SO LITTLE TIME! AUOY VEY!
First and foremost this story can be read as a stand alone although if you read it predecessor, A Reason To Breathe, you will come to appreciate A Reason To Kill that much more. It’s packed with tons of passionate suspense, more hilarity then I fear you’ll be able to handle, and some of the hottest and steamiest sex scenes I’ve ever read. C.P. does an outstanding job of keeping you on the edge of your seat the entire time you’re engrossed in her stories. Every time she writes one, they just keep getting better and better.
Max… OMG MAX! He’s got qualities that just keep surfacing and charming the pants right off my apprehensive body! I truthfully didn’t even have to read a word of this story to know that I would completely fall in love with Max. I’m drawn to C.P.’s leading men like a moth to a flame. They are perfect in every way and Max is no different. He’s bossy, sexy, rugged, in his prime, and for God sakes people, he’s a damn lumberjack! Need I say more! He is the one thing that the town of Trails End depends on. His logging company is what keeps the town in business and it’s people afloat. Enter Mia! She’s a semi-city girl sent to Trails End to study grizzly bears. She hate bugs, camping, and her boss! When the town is presented with a murder and all fingers and axes point to Mia, what will Max do and how will he save Mia from conviction and HERSELF? And, how will he move her from possible to probable? Mia made me laugh out loud more times than I can count. I just love her “bear” t-shirts! “I’m over koalafied.” – LOL
Great supporting character cast in Maxine, Martha, Jess, Lucy, Zimmer, even that asshole Cop Stetson makes the story that much richer! Maxine and Martha have the best occupation. Not what you would think two 60 something chickies would do for a living, but oh so damn funny!
To wrap this up. In a nutshell, this story was so gripping that I could not put it down. I found myself saying, “One more chapter, then I’ll go to bed!” Yeah, right, never happened and I went to work dead tired! The dialogue flows well and feels exceedingly natural. The tension and suspense leading up to that magnificent conclusion is one I won’t ever forget. You will literally be on the edge of your seat till the very last chapter. Don’t mistake me, the tale is effortless to read, but will have your heart and tummy in knots, but will keep you in the “who done it!” mode for most of the time. I utterly loved it!
5 Stars cause 10 weren’t an option!
