Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for my ARC.
This is the third book in the Romantic Suspense Cincinnati series by Karen Rose. Karen has long been one of my favourite authors and I’ve just recently finished the second book in the series Alone in the Dark. I was really keen therefore to get stuck in to this one and I definitely wasn’t disappointed.
I actually enjoyed Every Dark Corner a lot more than Alone in the Dark. It was far more fast paced and page turning. I literally could not put it down. My boyfriend was laughing at me for reading in the bath and while brushing my teeth!
The novel picks up where Alone in the Dark left off (spoilers ahead if you’ve not read AITD) after the traffickers were caught by Scarlett, Marcus and co. Every Dark Corner focuses on Special Agent Kate Coppola who is Deacon Novak’s ex partner recently reassigned to Cincinnati. It follows the search for Woody McCords partner an elusive guy nicknamed ‘The Professor’ who is involved in everything from drugs to child pornography. As this is one of Karen’s Romantic Suspense novels there is also a romance between Kate and another special agent but I’ll not give away who!
The novel is as I already said very fast paced and gripping. The story races along and unlike Alone in the Dark we as readers are not given an idea of who the partner is. Although we get his perspective on things and hear his name there are so many names used for him that it’s hard to tell whether they are real or false names and this just adds to the mystery!
The Romantic element is as hot and heavy as usual and I must admit it’s a guilty pleasure of mine to read this series with its combination of horrific crime and Steamy romance. I love that all the characters are linked in as well and I’m looking forward to the next novel in the series which I’m secretly hoping will focus on Stone And Delores!
