Blackmail by Robin Caroll

Blackmail (Mills & Boon Love Inspired Suspense)


 Another facility's been sabotaged!
And PR representative Sadie Thompson is on the case. When she's assigned to investigate the damage to her employer's oil rigs, she knows it's her chance. Finally, she can prove she's left her "bad girl" past behind her. Yet someone wants the evidence to disappear--and is willing to threaten Sadie and Caleb, her recently paroled half-brother, to make it happen.
Caleb's parole officer, Jon Garrison, is watching them both closely, waiting for one of them to slip up. He doesn't trust Sadie--can she trust him? She needs Jon's help, and has nowhere else to turn....

My Opinion: 

One of the better suspense books I have read although I didn't much fear for the characters in anyway. The book was very predictable but the reason I found it to be one of the better suspense books I have read was because it was believable. People were not trying to blow or shoot the main characters up on every other page. In fact, not at all. Their fear or lack thereof was strictly from the blackmail through most of the story.

Some things I did not care for were: 1) how quickly Sadie and Jon's relationship flourished. It seemed as if they just met and then they are in a relationship. Even though Sadie doesn't want to be known for her past reputation. 2) how fast Sadie and her brother relationship built. Again, I thought it would take longer for them to trust each other, but within a couple days they were the best of pals. 3) I didn't understand a lot of the oil mumble jumbo. 4) COOYON??? What is a cooyon? If you know please tell me!!!

Overall, it was entertaining but just okay. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Stars: 3
