A Fatal Flaw - Reviews

Hi I thought I would share a couple of reviews of my romantic suspense A Fatal Flaw. Happy reading!

A FATAL FLAW reached out and grabbed me from the first page and kept me interested
with its twists and turns. Suspense is the name of the game in this mystery and
this tale is fraught with unanswered questions and possibilities. Kerensa is a woman with spunk if not a little innocence, her sheltered life and trusting attitude is a definite change. Ned is everything you expect in a hero, strong yet sensitive and of course smoking hot. The mystery is the main focus of the story but there is also the added bonus of the slow growing romance between Kerensa and Ned. I truly enjoyed this story and didn’t stop reading until I finished it. Applause goes to Margaret Blake on creating a story with interesting characters and an enthralling plot.

Kerensa Mawgan's mother dies after a long battle with cancer leaving in her daughter's hands a secret that has been hidden since before she was born. She travels from Cornwall to the USA to try to unravel the mystery of her birth and the death of the man who may have been her father. Ned Rochester has been injured in the line of duty as a policeman and has time on his hands. What better way to fill it than to do what he does best, solve a possible crime?
Margaret Blake pens a tale that shows a great contrast between people who have everything and those who make something of their lives the hard way. The Logan family may have everything money can buy but Kerensa, Ned, and others show grit and courage money can't buy. The good guys grow on us even with their quirks and idiosyncrasies. The villain is as despicable as they come, sometimes being vicious just because he can.
Throughout the book Ms. Blake weaves a sweet love story with the suspense even though it's probably doomed from the start. Ned and Kerensa are from two different worlds an ocean apart. That doesn't stop them from developing feeling for one another no matter how hard they fight it. Ned's Dad is a great contrast to Campbell Logan's father. He may be flawed but we keep hoping he may grow through it. I like this author's style. It seems like she's writing about real people in situations that could happen. Scenarios come alive as do the people with her use of dialogue and situations that help us know them better. This is well worth reading.

There’s enough suspense and romance to please readers of either genre, and Blake’s engaging characters and intriguing plot are sure to send you in search of her other titles. John Lindermuth, Writer

It's still high up on Whiskey Creek's Top 10 bestseller list, too (number three this morning).
