Color of Danger by Alexa Verde
Former runaway Mari Del Lobo works hard to save her struggling restaurant and to trust people again. Dallas surgeon Dr. Luke Goodman turns her world upside down with terrifying news. A recent murder has her late brother’s – aka the Smiling Killer – signature and MO. When attacks on her escalate, Mari fights her growing attraction to the good doctor as fiercely as she fights for her life. To rescue herself and those she loves, will she be able to stop the murderer before he strikes again?
Luke couldn’t save his fiancée from the Smiling Killer, but he’ll do anything to prevent more murders, even ask help from the serial killer’s sister. Finding a kindred tortured soul and the perpetrator’s next target in Mari, Luke is determined to protect the stubborn ex-rebel. But Mari would rather face danger than risk the safety of the man she comes to love.
I love finding new authors and was excited for the opportunity to read and review Color of Danger by Alexa Verde. After reading the synopsis, I was certainly intrigued and eager to read more!
Color of Danger is Alexa Verde’s debut novel, which releases Friday, and the first book in her Secrets of Rios Azules series. Set in a fictional south Texas town, this inspirational romantic suspense kept me guessing until the very end!
I really enjoyed the complexity of the main characters, Mari and Luke, and their emotional and spiritual growth, as well as the undercurrents of romance. The dramatic elements and mounting suspense made for some hair-raising moments and intensified my need to know how the story would end. I loved the twists, turns, and surprises along the way, as Mari and Luke worked to stay out of danger and one step ahead of the killer!
Color of Danger is a great debut and a recommended read for fans of romantic suspense! I look forward to reading more from Alexa Verde!
