I’ve been in promo-mode for the last few weeks with the release of my new book, Rannigan’s Redemption, so I’ve been lax with posting much of anything else. BUT! I recently read a really cool book I want to tell you about.
Australian G. S. Bailey is the author of a whole slew of mystery and suspense novels, all with a steamy dose of romance on the side. I’ve been wanting to read something of his for some time and I finally read his new book, Kangaroo Crossing. I was not disappointed. Here’s my review.
Steamy Romantic Mystery
Kangaroo Crossing is Book 5 of author G.S. Bailey’s Mystery Loves Romance series. Journalist Blake is a confirmed city boy. He’s also a player, content to entertain himself with casual hook-ups and one-night stands rather than risk having his heart broken again.
Madeline runs her family’s cattle station in the outback about as far away from the big city as one can get. She and her family are still reeling from the yet unsolved murder of Maddy’s mother years before. While she’s happy with her simple country life, she wouldn’t mind finding a man to share it with.
Their worlds collide when Blake is assigned to look into new evidence in the case of Madeline’s mother and several other cold cases. He’s gentleman enough to know he shouldn’t trifle with her heart. But is it really trifling if he’s falling for her?
I loved this book. The author takes us with him on a trip into the Australian outback, weaving together awe of Mother Nature and terrific suspense. And he builds incredible sexual tension between the main characters. I haven’t read the other books in this series and that’s okay because they’re all stand-alone. But I think I know what goes next on my To-Read list.
