Book Description:

Author Heather Huffman reunites some of her fans’ favorite characters with this unforgettable journey of romance, friendship, humor and suspense.

Tenacious reporter Rachel Cooper devotes her life to exposing corruption by shining a light on the darker corners of the world – a career that doesn’t leave much room for relationships. Even so, she finds it impossible to stop thinking about her unexpected run-in with Conrad Langston, an old flame that never quite burnt out.

When her mother calls in the middle of the night because her sister is missing and the police are offering little help, Rachel immediately turns to the only person she knows she can always count on – Conrad. 

Determined to protect her family, Rachel finds herself embroiled in the frightening and tragic underworld of human trafficking. As her pursuit of justice pulls her deep into the darkness, she recognizes an opportunity to re-evaluate her choices in life and take a new path – even if it means walking through the fires of hell to protect the ones she loves.

Passionate, engaging and poignant, Devil in Disguise entertains while raising awareness of modern day social issues.

My Review:

This was a very interesting, well-written  story of mystery and suspense, with one exception.  I thought that the reason for Julia’s disappearance, human trafficking was presented much too quickly.  It seemed to me that as soon as she was missing, the other characters immediately knew more about the story than I feel they might have if this were a real life situation.  Despite that, the plot developed very well and kept my interest.  The attraction between Rachel and Conrad added to the interest of the story.  It was a quick to read book that held a lot of action in the 200 pages it contained.  The characters were  solid and their personalities seemed to weave well together.  If you enjoy action packed suspense novels, then you are sure to enjoy this book.  I would recommend that you add it to your reading shelf for this new year.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book to review by the publicist.  I was not obligated to write a positive review.  The opinions in this review are my own.
