"Chilled" is the second book in Kendra Elliot's Bone Secrets Series and I seriously had a had time putting down this book while reading it. I actually listened to this book as well whenever I could not read the book due to taking care of chores around the house. I was determined to finish it, it was that good.
Brynn Nealey is a forensic nurse and she's about to make a trip into a very dangerous blizzard to find a plane crash and help out if there are survivors. She's teamed up with several other searchers and one of them is former US marshal Alex Kinton, who has a plan of his own when he reaches the plane crash. He has been tracking the plane and when he got word the plane never reached it's destination and he knew something was up. He puts himself into the search party and he is determined to find one person on that plane and he's hoping the person did not survive. If he did, then he has a reason to take revenge on what happened to his brother years ago. Unfortunately, Alex is having a hard time keeping up with what he's supposed to do. He's supposed to be using the search party for his advantage, but he is having a hard time keeping Brynn out of his head. He is starting to fall for the beautiful forensic nurse and he will do anything to protect her. None of the other crew know what Alex is here for, and he wants to keep it that way. While out during the blizzard, the search party will be thrown into chaos. They will have to fight for their lives in the extreme weather and it will get even worst when they reach the plane crash because they have to protect themselves from the killer that survived the plane crash. Alex is even more determined to find out why the plane went off course and who is helping the one person he wants dead.
Kendra Elliot gives us yet another thriller full of suspense, romance, and action. One of the main reasons why I love Kendra Elliot and her writing style is she writes in several points of views. She takes you into the head of a serial killer, as well as the one man determined to stop the serial killer. I love how Kendra Elliot gives you two characters who out of dangerous circumstances become attached to each other. Brynn was one of my favorite characters of the bunch because she did not let anything really bother her. Even when she found out the truth of Alex, she knew there was a reason why he would do what he did. She felt compelled to help him. Alex was a strong character who was very lovable and I commended him for what he was trying to do in this book. He just wanted to bring the killer to justice for what he did to his brother. He still felt it was his fault, his brother was killed. I felt so much sympathy for Alex. He definitely found a perfect partner to help him through what he went through and that was Brynn.
The secondary characters of the story were also very likable and I hope Kendra has a story for some of them. The real story of the plane crash and how the plane went off course is the big doozy of the story. You will be in shock like Alex was to find out who was actually helping the serial killer escape.
I give this book 5 full moons and highly recommend it to romantic suspense readers out there. Be prepared to bundle up and take a trip through a very cold blizzard with the characters to track down one plane crash that could lead them into trying to survive not only due to the weather, but due to one person intent to kill them if they do not let him escape. He's one killer who also wants to put one certain character in his place. (less)
