Beguiled, by Deeanne Gist and J. Mark Bertrand

About the Novel:

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?

Pattie's Review:

I enjoyed Beguiled. It is a good Christian suspense novel: Intrigue without too much violence, romance but not so much as to be overwhelming, the right amount of mystery, and well-written.

The cover of this novel, in this case, is a bit misleading. It implies a historical novel, when in fact it's a contemporary novel.

I visited Charleston a few years ago, and in the book's setting descriptions it was easy to see Charleston again in my mind. A nice touch.

Overall, I'd recommend this book for anyone looking for a romantic suspense novel with a surprise ending.

Special thanks to Bethany House Publishers for a review copy of this novel.
