Killer Date is the second novel in Kathy Clark’s Scandals series, but it works well as a stand-alone young-adult romantic suspense, and I enjoyed it very much despite not having read the first. The series centers around an unlikely group of half-brothers and sisters, children of different mothers, who somehow inherit their estranged father’s detective agency, mansion, eye-color and more. They’re a cool bunch – a seriously grown-up Secret Seven or Famous Five perhaps (or Scooby and co – am I showing my age?). And stage magician Reno makes a great protagonist for this tale.

Reno has stage presence, skills with deflection and minor explosions, and a deep unwillingness to commit to anyone because everyone always leaves. Jenny has great memories of family life, and a missing sister. When Reno and co are hired to find the sister, Reno finds his stage persona crumbling under a serious temptation to like a girl who’s not his type. Meanwhile Jenny just might be falling for him. And Jenny’s sister might be falling into serious trouble.

Danger comes knocking at the door after a perfect date, and fast action ensues, pitting federal cutbacks against drug cartels, and revealing Reno’s hidden depths – perhaps even his hidden self. Sensual and detailed romance scenes fit very naturally into that has as much romantic suspense as it does suspenseful danger, and Killer Date is fast exciting read that will definitely leave you looking for more, and just might provide a touch of food for thought.

Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review, with apologies for taking so long to get to it. ( )

When Jenny’s sister, Angie, goes missing Jenny goes to the police. Unfortunately, the police chalk this one up to a college student running off with her boyfriend. Jenny knows something is wrong, that Angie wouldn’t let her worry like this. Especially since Jenny has raised Angie after the death of their parents. Jenny becomes desperate to find her sister and takes the little money she has to hire Scandal’s Detective Agency to find her.

Reno sees Jenny enter the office and finds himself immediately drawn to her even though she is not his typical type. He finds himself wanting to impress her and help her. Reno will get more than he bargained for when Angie’s boyfriend, Miguel, shows up with near fatal gunshot wounds and news that Angie has been kidnapped by a rival drug cartel to his father. Now it is up to Reno, Jenny and DEA Agent Nick to find Angie and bring her home safe.

Author Kathy Clark’s ‘Killer Date’ takes us on a wild ride through suspense, mystery, kidnapping, death, romance, misdirection and hope. The ‘opposites attract’ back and forth attraction between Jenny and Reno is exciting and suspenseful. The mysterious circumstances and perilous journey they take to find Angie is exhilarating. I highly recommend it! ( )
