Today I’m reviewing Deep Woods a romantic suspense by Helena Newbury, which us currently number one on the amazon bestseller lists for:
- #1 in Action & Adventure Romance (Books)
- #1 in Action Thriller Fiction
- #1 in Suspense Action Fiction
I have read and love all of Helena Newbury’s romantic novels, because they are well-written, with action-packed plots and engaging characters, and of course a guaranteed happy ever after, not before a few heart-stopping obstacles!
In the case of Deep Woods, the female lead, Bethany, is in a dark moment of her life, she’s dropped out of medical school, has a huge student debt, and she’s barely making ends meet working in a call centre.
She rescues a German sheepdog, Rufus, who is tangled in barbed wire and the dog follows her home. The following day, she meets the dog’s owner, Cal, a bitter marine and ex recluse, living as a mountain man. Months later, she is kidnapped by a criminal organisation, escapes and meets Cal again who rescues her, but can he keep her safe?
The rest of the novel includes nerve-racking pursuits and life in his cabin in the wilds, as their mutual attraction grows and they help each other overcome their respective traumas and move on with their lives, after facing life-threatening situations.
A steamy, romantic suspense for a cold winter evening, to be read preferably sitting by a cosy fireplace!
I love all Helena’s novels, but I can’t help it, I have a favourite and it’s called Kissing my Killer and here’s my review.
