Explosive Christmas Showdown by Darlene L. Turner started with a bang - literally! - and didn’t let up until the final page was turned. This story kept me on my toes the entire time I was reading it! I could not figure out who the bomber was or why he was killing what seemed like such random people.
Of course, as I usually do, I thought everyone was guilty at one point or another as I was reading, but I was totally surprised at how things turned out in the end.
I really liked Zac and Olly as a couple and I hated the secrets they had kept from each other, one that actually caused their earlier breakup. I did like that Zac’s secret, his reason for breaking up with Olly, was actually legitimate. Many times when this trope is used the reason for the break up is not really legitimate. In this case I could understand his thinking.
If you like you romantic suspense with nonstop action and likable characters, this story will be right up your alley! In fact, any of Darlene Turner’s stories will be!
