I love a good romance suspense... and this book didn't disappoint me! Mixing dramatic action, romance, and a killer on the loose made this one book that was hard to put down. Madeline is one of those `unlucky' in love people who has trust issues.
The romance between Madeline and Donovan begins over a dead body. Madeline finds the body of Frank Johnson while walking a dog on the beach, and Donovan is one of the first officer's on the scene. He immediately begins to make a complete and total fool of himself. Their romance takes time to develop as they both have problems getting over events from their past, and of course, the walls the two of them have erected to protect themselves from getting hurt, causing them to break up numerous times before they finally realize that they are soul mates.
With lots of twists and turns, and several characters who were `suspicious', there are many potential suspects to keep you engaged in this book. I enjoyed Crime & Passion very much. The author put the romance and suspense together in a perfect harmony!
