Grave Danger is a follow up book to Warning Signs. I have read both and while I think the second book can be read alone it's always best to read the first as well. Grave Danger was a much better read in my opinion. I thought the characters were better developed and the story line seemed to flow in a more suspenseful way. Lydia was my favorite character and I really enjoyed getting into her mind throughout the story. While this is a small book it holds a well developed story. I recommend to those ...more

I love an intriguing mystery; I love an exciting thriller; I love a tender romance. But it’s not often you find all three masterfully woven together on the pages bound within the same book cover. Grave Danger kept me on the edge of my seat. You know how some novels just have one really exciting point? In Grave Danger there were numerous points of suspense.

Besides the gripping story line, I really enjoyed the characterization presented in the book. I’ve observed by reading her other books as wel

Before reading Katy Lee, I never read inspirational book, but I love this author's stories. Book two in the Stepping Stones series, Grave Danger, did not disappoint. This is a book for those looking for a great suspense without all the blood, gore and cruelty that takes place in a lot of thrillers. Don't get me wrong, I love reading thrillers too (Lisa Gardner- you are a master!), but there are times I want to read and still be comfortable turning out the lights to sleep. Okay, most of the time. ...more

SO good!! One of the best I've read! Wesley's attitude got on my nerves at times but I've got to appreciate a book that has me feeling every emotion!

Review on my blog (5/7):

Grave Danger was a really good LIS novel. Having read "Warning Signs" last year, it was neat to see Miranda and Owen in this story, too. I really liked Lydia, the main female character. Her profession (forensic anthropologist) was intriguing. The mystery was great and there were several twists.

Overall, a good romantic suspense novel. I really enjoyed the last half, since it

Grave Danger by Katy Lee is a wonderful and moving Inspirational suspense novel. Set on Stepping Stones Island in Maine (a setting first depicted in Warning Signs), the story revolves around the discovery of a human skull by the Island's sheriff, Wesley Grant. When a forensic anthropologist, Lydia Muir, shows up to investigate, the suspense kicks into high gear. Lydia, who is working in the shadow of her brilliant father, has to walk a fine line between her professional obligations and her moral

I really don't know how you do it Katy ! The story line, the suspense all kept me on the edge of my seat again. I loved the continued story of characters from Warning signs and each one has such a rich addition to the whole book. I at times held my breath as the plot thickened and danger seemed so real to me. I love a great book that makes you feel like your living in the story. The tender scenes of love, even if during danger were wonderful and touching. I loved Lydia, her courage and her brave ...more

Katy Lee's latest installment in her Stepping Stone island series kept me turning the page until I finished it. I sat down to read a chapter and a couple of hours later, I finished the book. The mystery was compelling and the characters pulled me along in their action. The book had a nice balance of the mystery/suspense along with the growth of the romance between the two characters.

**A strong 3.5 stars.**

I bought this book. It was nominated in the romantic suspense category in 2015 for a RITA award and edited by my current Loved Inspired editor. Since I'm new to Harlequin as an author-- I wanted to see what kind of writing/story line attracted both my editor and an awards nomination nod.

Overall, enjoyable story line. Feisty heroine who has an intriguing job. Loved the small town island setting.

5: Loved it. Set all books aside to read this one.

In Grave Danger, Katy has created one of my favorite book couples. I thoroughly enjoyed the verbal sparring between Lydia and Wesley. You truly feel like they are perfect together. One of my favorite lines was when she thought if she had a braid, he would be pulling on it. Good mystery where I don't think you'll guess the ending. I was thrilled that Miriam played a small role in this book too. Grave Danger has it all; witty dialogue, tension between the characters and suspense.

Grave Danger is definitely a "read in the day time" book!!! Great story filled with suspense and unexpected turns throughout....Exciting surprise ending..awesome romance story about trust, forgiveness and peace when walking with God and doing His will. Katy Lee is a riveting inspirational Christian writer and I highly recommend this book to all that love a good suspense novel.

Grave Danger by Katy Lee was a excellent book. If you want suspense, intrigue, trust, mystery, and romance you HAVE to read this book. I will be rereading it. I did not realize it was a Stepping Stones Island series. It is not written on the cover any place. I did not read the first book. If I get the chance I will.

I should have hated this book; it had all the things i dislike - overly "preachy," a wimpy female protagonist, issues easily resolved if persons only talked to each other - but it was so well written and the story exciting enough that, for this book only, I was able to put these aside.

This was an interesting read; part-suspense, part-romance. A skeleton brings Dr. Linda Muir and Sheriff Wesley Grant together. Both are hurting people. Grant surrounds himself with a hard shell because his mother sent him away when she knew she had only a few months to live to protect him and because his last girlfriend left him for another man--one closer to her financial station in life. Muir feels inadequate compared to her well known father and is trying to gain the respect of her boss. Does ...more

Excellent book. It's #2 in the Stepping Stones Island

An easy, well-paced read with several twists and turns. Even if the romantic ending is predictable, the mystery is not, and it keeps you guessing throughout.

This book was AMAZING! Every turn was exciting, and the characters felt so real. There were times the suspense was so thrilling, I had to get up and walk around a little bit because I was breathing really hard (as if I was running with the characters themselves!). I enjoy a book that makes me feel like I'm a part of the story, and this was just that!
I loved Katy Lee's ability to make me love/hate a character. She does such a wonderful job giving distaste or favor to a character using the descri
