On the island of Tortola in the Virgin Islands there's a bit more that sun, surf and beautiful scenery, Tortola is also the home to a serial killer. After three years on the “Field-Dresser” case, Special Agent Nathan Brewer is sure that he knows who the next victim is going to be.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

For All to See is a romantic suspense that takes place on the lovely Caribbean island of Tortola. Descriptions of the scenery alone are enough to draw the reader into the story. Add in a despicable killer and two scarred individuals and it makes for a compelling read.

Madelyn suffered not only physical but mental abuse to the point that she no longer trusts anyone. Honestly I was blown away with how quickly she opened up to roma

Romance triumphs over mystery in this book as we get to see more of how the protagonists came to connect with each other than the little nuances that may lead to the Field Dresser. When it comes to mystery, it's the little details that pique the interest of readers as they try to connect them piece by piece before they reach the big reveal.

3.5 to be exact. Megan Mitcham is a new author to me. However, I will be reading more of her books. I like an author who doesn’t “tell” me the story, but rather “shows” me the scenes and lets me put it together myself. For All to See is filled with intrigue and mystery. It’s a fast-paced novel that will keep you reading. Set in the British Virgin Islands, you not only get a good story, but you get a fantastic setting.

Another book that I wondered if I was reading the same book as other reviewers. I really didn't like it that much. I didn't like the characters, not as individuals, and especially not as a couple. The plot wasn't all that suspenseful or exciting either. At least I won't feel like I have to read the other book in the series! ...more

Megan has done it again...

I'm a huge fan of her BASE BRANCH series, and was excited to see this new venture of hers. If you couldn't tell in the previous series, Megan does suspense well -- and that certainly carried through into this new Bureau series.

In book one, FOR ALL TO SEE, we have Madelyn and Nathan. As the synopsis states, Madelyn left the US, leaving pr
Romantic suspenseful horror 4.5

*Reviewed for Wicked Women Book Blog*

Holy Cow! This was an awesome suspenseful and horrific read with a liberal splash of sexy thrown into it. Madelyn Garrett leads a very simple life, she’s active in her community but keeps to herself. She has a dark past that she doesn’t want to reveal and that’s why she keeps people at arms length. Then her whole world shatters one fine morning and peace and contentment is a thing of the past. She is grief stricken when someone

For All to See is an evenly paced romantic suspense novel about Madelyn and Nathan’s efforts to prevent Madelyn from becoming another victim of a serial killer who killed Madelyn’s best friend.

A real murder mystery full of intrigue, suspense and mounting tension. An unknown serial killer strikes on a remote island, FBI agents have figured out the next victim and need to protect her while trying to figure out who the killer is. Gosh what a ride! I was hooked from the first and working out myself just who the killer was, but that wasn't made easy the author kept me guessing for a while before I sussed it. All the elements I love in this type of story, enough twists and turns to keep it ...more

Madelyn Garrett moved to the island of Tortola for the peaceful and tranquil life on it and it's not until her best friend goes missing that she discovers that her island paradise may not be much of one.

FBI Agent Nathan Brewer has been on the hunt for a serial killer with the moniker, “the Field-Dresser” for three years (even though most believed he had already been captured) and it appears that the hunt may be at an end when bodies matching the M.O of the killer surface on the island of Tortol

So far when I have picked up a novel from this author, I have come away very satisfied. With this one I was even more so than any of the other ones I have read from her. I do so love a good intrigue and in this one she delivers that with big time suspense and danger. It starts out innocently enough when you are introduced to Madelyn who is also a teacher out with her friend. While they are doing that you are introduced to Special Agent Nathan who is called in to further investigate a serial kill ...more

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

When Madelyn's friend goes missing and then turns up, not just dead but brutally murdered, the FBI send Nathan it, since its highly likely this is a known serial killer that he's been after for the last three years. Its also highly likely, that Madelyn could be his next victim. Nathan will do anything to stop that happening.

I do so love to step out of my comfort zone now and then, it keeps me on my toes, in more ways than one. A crime/

I have fast become a fan of this author, Ms Megan Mitcham, who has the ability with descriptive words and unique phrases to capture the reader in a web of intrigue and suspense while creating such relatable characters that one has a hard time putting down the book and going about a mundane day.
This journey carries us to a beautiful Caribbean with old world values, where one leaves one's door unlocked and everyone knows you only it is totally corrupted and tainted by a horrific serial killer the

I received a copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.

There hasn't been a book that I've read from this author that let me down. From the time I read Enemy Mine of her Base Branch series, I was in love with her. I was a fan right away. I loved the way she establishes her characters. I love how she writes about the development of their relationships. Most of all, I love the way she plays out the suspense and mystery

I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.


This book was wonderful! It had suspense, romance, and a crime drama all rolled up in one. I enjoyed how the story unfolded as the pages turned.

Madelyn has moved to an island to escape her past. She has successfully buried her past and is looking forward to the quiet simple life she has created for herself. That is until her best friend goes missing. Ever
Another great romantic suspense by Megan Mitcham! I stayed up half the night to finish it because I could not wait to find out how it all played out. Nathan and Madelyn's relationship progresses at a steady pace as they get to know each other. Neither one was prepared to find love, especially in the middle of a murder investigation, but it fit into the story nicely. The suspense element was written extremely well and kept me guessing as to who it could be. The description of the crimes committed ...more

As a special agent he's working hard to protect Madelyn and track down the man responsible. But as they spend more and more time together their feelings grow ...more

This is a new to me author and I absolutely loved the book! Can not wait for more in this series. It kept me turning pages until the very end!

I really liked the amount of strength the main character had, she was one tough cookie, but not without vulnerabilties, which made her relatable.

There's lots of little things that make you try and figure everything out, with just the right amount of romance and sexy in there too. I enjoyed it

I was given a copy of For All to See from NetGalley for an honest review and this is my review.
I loved this book and can't wait to get my hands on the second one in the series. Nathan and Madelyn were very well matched and I really enjoyed how they fell for each other throughout the book. I also loved the mystery part of the book. It was very well written and it kept the reader on edge because you were not sure who he was or what he was going to do until the author was ready to tell all.

I loved reading this book. It was so refreshing to have a tightly written storyline with charismatic characters. This is the first time I have read this author but won't be the last. I highly recommend you do not begin it at bedtime. I couldn't put it down. Well worth the lost sleep.

This was the first time reading a book by this author. If I could have just curled up in my chair, and shut out the world, I would have kept on reading this book until I was finished.

I found the plot line was developed nicely, andthe twists and turns were awesome.

And there was enough of a hint for the next book. Now, I need to find book two.....

Strangers forced to work together

At first I was a little frustrated at the author's over explanation of small details when setting the story. Though I soon forgot about it once the story was established. I love the strong female character at the center storyline. Her cast of supporting characters make it a dark and brooding criminal mysteries you don't want to miss!

A Well rounded romantic suspense story.

For All to See starts with a bang! It has a few slower points, but overall a very well-written story that keeps the reader interested and engaged.

This might have been my first book by Megan Mitcham, but I'm looking forward to reading more!

Beautiful book! I loved it!!
I found a very good story, extremely witty characters and a dog I fell in love with from the first pages! I totally recommend it! Moreover it's a standalone, but in the end the book has a good link with the second one in the series. I love when books are linked!
