Title: Pivotal Decisions (Moonlight and Murder #2)
Author: Reily Garrett
She carries a gun for a living…
But never expected to become a target.
On an early morning hike in a remote part of the Everglades, Sabine Guidry discovers her childhood friend sitting by one of the numerous canals common to the area.
The only problem is… he’s dead.
A note attached to his shirt declares him the first of many, unless she returns a piece of priceless technology. Her duties in Florida’s FWC demands facing all sorts of slithering and ravenous creatures, but the most dangerous by far are the two-footed varieties.
Detective Coyote Waylin left the southern beaches for the wilds of Pennsylvania’s mountains and small town living the night he broke his brothers jaw. After six years, a call from his estranged brother forces him to return south to untangle a web of murder and intrigue.
With the help of their snarky friends, Coyote and Sabine sort the snarled web of lies, betrayal, and deception while skirting the romantic entanglement threatening to derail them at every turn.
When Sabine’s friend Jinx is found dead, she must rely on the help of her other friend Augie to figure out why. Though they haven’t had the best relationship, they agree to put all tensions aside to work together. There is a killer out there, hunting them down, and if they aren’t careful, they’ll be next.
Suspense, twists, and mysteries galore! There were plenty of characters in this story, any of whom could be suspects. It was fun learning about each of their backgrounds, but at a point, it got a tad overwhelming. Even in the end, I still have questions, but I think that’s what made this story intriguing. Only a really good book leaves you thinking.
While there is plenty of suspense, there are some steamy/romantic moments in the story too. These were well done as well. I have to say though, my favorite part of the book is all the action.
The author has a way with painting a picture. The atmosphere of southern Florida was described so well that by the end of the story, it felt as if I were there.
Fantastic story all around.
