EDGE OF STEELE by Susan Sleeman, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas #NewRelease

If you enjoy nonstop action, intrigue, and suspense--with some romance thrown in for extra measure, you’ll like Susan Sleeman’s conclusion to her Steele Guardians series, Edge of Steele. Creating realistic, flawed, but engaging characters is a strength of Sleeman, along with her obvious research skills. This story drew me in quickly and held my attention to the last page. Ryleigh Steele and Finn Durham have a shared history but needed to work together to find the bomber at a lumber company they provided security for.

I always enjoy learning more about crime solving and new technology used in it, and Sleeman is a pro at integrating it into her stories seamlessly. With plenty of twists and turns, this book kept me guessing to the end. Although this book is part of a series, it could be read alone, however, it was fun to see the appearances of characters from some of the other books in the series, and also some from Sleeman’s other series. For clean Christian suspense that will keep you reading late into the night, you can’t go wrong with this author.

BackCover Blurb:
With enemies surrounding her…
Ryleigh Steele gives in to mounting pressure from her siblings and cousins and leaves her job as a law enforcement officer to join the Steele Guardians. She’s just getting her feet wet when a lumber company begins receiving threats, and the owner contracts with Ryleigh for the Steele Guardians to protect their workers. But the threats quickly escalate under her watch, and a bomb is detonated at one of the sites, killing one of the workers.

Can she find the killer and save her company’s reputation and her life?
Ryleigh takes the man’s death personally and commits to finding the killer. Trouble is, the owner has hired a security manager without Ryleigh’s knowledge, and the manager isn’t about to let anyone cut him out of this investigation. Ryleigh gets ready to do battle with him, but when she meets the handsome head of security, former Navy SEAL, Finn Durham, she can barely find the words to speak much less fight. She and Finn had once dated, a tumultuous month, that ended badly. Doesn’t matter. She can’t let their past or her residual feelings for him distract her in the hunt for the killer. If she’s not careful, the killer will find her first.
