Deeanne Gist in her new book, “Beguiled”,  published by Bethany House  answers the question what happens when a romance writer teams up with a suspense writer and creates a mix of the two?  The answer a very well written suspenseful romance.

Rylee Monroe is a dogwalker in Charleston’s wealthiest neighborhood.  Now a thief is terrorizing the area and worse the police seem to think it has something to do with Rylee.  The thief seems to be targeting the homes of the families she walks the dogs for.  Reporter Logan woods is following the break-ins with the hope of publishing his coverage as a true-crime book.  The more he digs, the more he realizes that Rylee seems to be at the center of everything.  As danger draws nearer, Logan must choose:  chase the girl, the story or plunge into the shadows after the villain who threatens everything.

Deeanne Gist is famous for her spirited romances set in historical times.  In this book Ms. Gist teams up with her former critique book partner J. Mark Bertrand and they combine their unique skills to bring a fresh, exciting suspense filled romance to the table.  This is a good read, will keep you guessing all the way until the end and the suspense will keep you flipping pages.  Maybe these two will team up again in the future but in the meantime we will keep ourselves occupied with their individual offerings.
