Scene of the Crime: Return to Mystic Lake- Carla Cassidy

Scene of the Crime: Return to Mystic Lake Carla Cassidy Harlequin Intrigue, Apr 15 2014, $5.50 ISBN: 9780373697618 FBI special agent Jackson Revannaugh works a missing persons’ case involving a family of three in Bachelor Moon, Louisiana. However, as he struggles to make progress, he is reassigned to help FBI agent Marjorie Clinton on a similar investigation in Mystic Lake near Kansas City, Missouri that includes a vanished Fed and her second husband. The pair of agents are total opposites in demeanor, which enhanced by an unwanted attraction rubs each the wrong way. However, their inquiry into the missing couple leads to an unknown adversary trying to kill them. As Jackson and Marjorie have each other’s back, they fall in love, but each also fears their respective dark secrets triggered the attempts on their lives. The latest Scene of the Crime romantic police procedural (see Scene of the Crime: Return to Bachelor Moon and Scene of the Crime: Deadman’s Bluff) is an exciting action-packed investigative thriller. Fast-paced the search for the missing people grips the reader from the moment we meet the leads and never let’s go while setting up future tales too. Although the romance is more subgenre standard, fans will enjoy this taut mystery. Harriet Klausner
