Full of strong characters, lots of suspense and action, and a wonderful romance, Deadly Intent packs a whole lot of story into an easy to read novella! I love it when authors are able to create a full and enjoyable tale in novella form. That is what Margaret Daley was able to do with this story.
Sarah and Ian are the main characters. They have a really interesting back story and both ended up going into different areas of law enforcement when they went their separate ways. Sarah was left broken-hearted years earlier, but now Ian is back. This makes for excellent tension and sets the stage for a very fulfilling rekindling of their romance. I thoroughly enjoyed Deadly Intent from start to finish and highly recommend it. (5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
