Still reeling from her ex-husband's betrayal, Dr. Kate Winfield has sworn off men. Freshly divorced, she’s ready to move on and focus on her new career working as a physician at the local VA. When Kate finds a mutilated body during a morning run, she finds herself drawn into the investigation—and right into the killer’s crosshairs.
Devil in Disguise is a romantic suspense novel, the third in the Quentin Security series by Morgan James and the first one I’ve read. But after reading this one? I will be getting the others and reading them, too!
The depth of the characters really captured my interest from the very beginning. Kate, a doctor, is still raw from her soon-to-be ex-husband’s betrayal, still reeling as she tries to find her new normal. She leaves behind the practice she helped build with him, seeking a fresh start at the local VA. But when she inadvertantly finds a mutilated body, her life is turned upside down. By her side is Gavin, who came into her life as her divorce attorney. He’s got his own fair share of baggage, in the form of his boss and the boss’s daughter. He’s also becoming disillusioned with the law he’s practicing, beginning to realize he might need a change. I loved that neither of them were portrayed to be perfect. They had baggage, they had imperfections. That made them real, made them relatable.
The story line was very suspenseful, too. I adore a good mystery, the twists and turns. This book really gave me that. There was just enough given to make me start guessing, but never enough to make it easy to figure out. And the villain? Not who I anticipated, but chillingly created!
If you love a good romantic suspense novel, this is a great one to pick up!
