"One Wrong Step" by Laura Griffin was a smart, action-packed romantic suspense novel that hit my sweet spot. The characters are just filled with foibles which makes for great twists and turns in the story. And the action? It's intelligent with n...more
This is book 2 in the Borderline Series. It can be read as a stand alone book. You don’t need to read book 1, although I preferred book 1 over book 2.

Celie is resilient and brave. She is compas...more
While not as strong as the first book in the series this was still a good romantic suspense tale. Not Griffin's strongest. I think the Glass sister duology is still the best.
