Beguiled: A Book Review

About The Book:

In the shadows of Charleston, someone is watching her

Rylee Monroe, a dogwalker in Charleston's wealthiest neighborhood, never feared the streets at night. But now a thief is terrorizing the area and worse, someone seems to be targeting her.

Reporter Logan Woods is covering the break-ins with the hope of publishing them as a true-crime book. The more he digs, the more he realizes this beguiling dogwalker seems to be at the center of everything.

As danger draws ever closer, Logan must choose: Chase the girl, the story, or plunge into the shadows after the villain who threatens everything?

My Review:

I have never read any of Deeanne Gist's previous works, mostly historical fiction, however I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It is a romantic thriller which will keep your attention throughout. The characters and plot lines are very well written and structured, and the flow of the book is impeccable. I highly recommend this book to all who enjoy romance and mystery!
