Mirror Deep by Joss Landry
Genre: Romantic Suspense recommended for 16+
Length: 456 pages
Release date: Oct. 2012


Katherine Bonner with the golden eyes and a golden, enchanted life is well on her way to becoming a horse whisperer. Tall, athletic, she loves to ride, and she can usually exact good behavior from most wild steed, except from Pierce who bucks her at every crack of the whip.

Pierce is top honcho in charge of the fifteen hundred acre ranch, Bonner-Willow. Although he owns a Master’s in business administration, he loves to be around horses. He considers himself more of a cowboy than a CEO.

When Kat becomes the bearer of unexpected news about her past from ex-convict, ex-lawyer Victor Horn, she wonders how she will ever find her roots and manage to put the pieces of her life back together again. She turns to Pierce, the dark hair and blue eyed hunk whom Kat believes, thinks he is God's gift to women.

Pierce reluctantly agrees to help, partly for reasons of his own. He worries about his lawyerly father being involved with Victor's murder. As Pierce and Kat travel to Chicago together, they walk right into a criminal investigation headed by two bumbling detectives. Kat makes a date with a potential serial killer, and Pierce, whose affection for Kat is slowly changing to one of deeper commitment, worries about her safety. Meanwhile, Kat bumps into a doppelganger she believes is stalking her, only to discover that no one else ever sees her.

Mirror Deep uncovers many twists and turns designed to keep the reader guessing until the end. Through all the action, Pierce remains by Kat's side. Will he be able to hide from Kat his mounting desire? Will Kat find who this look alike is and why she is trying to warn her? Does Kat follow a stranger to Paris, France simply to put miles between her and Pierce or to avoid the threat of a potential killer?

My Review:

If your niche is mysteries with some romance thrown in, this book, Mirror Deep will satisfy your cravings for both. Kat is thrown into a tailspin when she finds out that she was adopted. She didn't know that and thought all this time that Pierce was her cousin. They had a strong bond between them but it always felt weird, like she couldn't figure out how she should feel about him. Now that she knows he really isn't her cousin, will things change?

Evidently, a crooked lawyer named Horn got caught for baby trafficking years ago and spent some time jail and now he is back. Kat's real mother has passed away and the family would like for Kat to come to Chicago and be at the service. This sets in motion a whole lot of events, including a mystery as to why someone would try to kill her and what are they after?

Kat also gets another surprise when she meets someone who will rock her boat even further. But the mysteries keep piling up but Pierce along with Kat are determined to get to the bottom of things.

She also finds out her real mother was from France and her grandfather is very wealthy. She decides to take a trip to France to see him and to try and get some answers.

It's a really well thought out story with lots of twists and turns. Great story to get involved in and you will enjoy it to the very end.

Happy Reading!
