As a writer, I’m in the process of putting together a book proposal. Part of the proposal is finding books that are similar in some way to the book that I am pitching. My search came up with Hidden in the Everglades, by Margaret Daley, about a former cop turned bodyguard. The similarity between that and my own storyline is eerie. Thankfully that’s where the similarity ends.
I must confess I haven’t finished this book yet, but so far I’m impressed. It’s fast paced, and if you like that kind of read, then you will love Hidden in the Everglades.
The story opens with a murder and a former female cop coming to the rescue. By the end of the first chapter two people are dead, one is missing and the killer is on the loose. Because this is a romantic suspense there is also romantic tension between the female cop, turned bodyguard business owner and the doctor who happens to be the brother of the missing teen.
I know I didn’t give you much information this week, but I just started the book yesterday and had little time to read. That being said, I will make time to read this book. The plot is compelling and I anticipate it being a fast read.
I’d love to hear what books you are reading and what you recommend.
