An InD’tale Magazine Staff Top Pick: UNEXPECTED RISK

Unexpected Risk - June 2020 Top Pick by Elite Reviews

Unexpected Risk offers readers an assortment of tightly interwoven threads that create a layered thriller. Contract killers, retired elite military service members, psychics, a secret group of power players, and two people who are wary of love are just a few of many highlights in this briskly paced installment of the Phoenix Agency series. It engages as a stand-alone even though knowing details from the previous stories would deepen understanding of the connections between, and references to, the recurring characters. A general cliffhanger regarding the overall story arc sparks anticipation for the next entry in this sexy why, how and who-done-it adrenalin surge of a romance.” —Cardyn Brooks, InD’tale Magazine
