"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 wasn't one of my favorites. I didn't really care for either main character and their romance just didn't work for me. I don't like players like John who can't remember the name of a woman's whose bed he just left. And I had a hard time believing his miraculous turn around to wanting a relationship with Celie. I couldn't figure out what he saw in her. And Celie lied way too often an ...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. In book 1 “One Last Breath,” Robert and Cecelia are secondary characters and are married to each other. Robert stole money from Saledo, a drug lord, emptied his and Cecelia’s bank accounts and fled the country. Book 2 begins with Robert returning several m ...more
Does anyone have any recommendations for other romantic suspense that aren't too romancy? Ones that are similar to Laura Griffins?

PS I was happy to hear that the author was planning to write a book about the supporting characters Ka ...more

First off, I absolutely loved the ending of the last book where you get a small peek of a budding romance between Celie and John. It seemed promising based on that, but then when we get to their story, it just doesn't seem to work as I thought. I found Celie to be quite idiotic, naive, and clueless which surprised me. She was a s ...more

I love how this book ended. The last chapter was almost a complete surprise. I expected only one aspect of it...but the location they ended up was at first shocking, and then one tiny little sentence within that chapter had the lump rising harshly in my throat....
Thank you, Laura, for another great story!
