Release day: Desperate Deception
Today is the official release of Desperate Deception by DB Tait (Dark Mountain #2) (ebook, Momentum). Here’s the blurb:
Julia Taylor did ten years in prison for a murder she didn’t commit. Finally released and proved innocent, all she wants is to build up her design business and figure out where her romance with local cop Dylan Andrews is going. She’s ready for a quiet life, but murder and mayhem won’t let Julia Taylor alone.
First she finds her neighbors dead in an apparent murder-suicide. Then an erratic friend from Julia’s time in prison asks her to help find a sex worker who went missing in suspicious circumstances.
As the body count continues to rise, members of the Russian mafia and an unnerving evangelical church begin to cross Julia’s path.
Soon, Julia and Dylan are caught up in a maelstrom that threatens both their love and their lives.
Can they find justice before injustice finds them? Or is the pull of a haunted past too strong?
A tense crime novel with romantic elements in the style of JD Robb, Nora Roberts and Martina Cole.
DB dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
This is the second in the Dark Mountain series (Cold Deception was the first) and finds out what happens after the happy ending. For Julia, ten years in prison means adjusting to the outside world with all her uncertainties and fears. She’s trying to have a relationship with Dylan, a cop in their home town of Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, but increasingly believes her past is not good for Dylan’s career prospects. At least, that’s what she tells herself. Against the backdrop of a complex murder investigation, she has to develop some faith in herself and a belief that she deserves happiness, a major struggle for many women who come out of prison and have to make a new life for themselves. If you like your romantic suspense with a bit of grit, the Dark Mountain series is for you.
