Title: Secrets of a Dangerous Woman
Series: Black Swamp Mysteries, #3
Author: P.M. Terrell
Genre: Mystery – Suspense
Irishman Dylan Maguire is back and in his first assignment with the CIA, he must interrogate recently captured Brenda Carnegie. But when she escapes again, it’s obvious that she’s had help from within the CIA’s own ranks. Psychic spy Vicki Boyd assists him in locating her again—but when he discovers Brenda’s true identity, he realizes his mission has just become very personal.
Brenda turned to fully face Dylan and he found himself unable to tear himself away from her eyes. They were like liquid pools a man could drown in. She continued staring at him, expectantly waiting for his response.
“You shouldn’t keep me here, Irish,” she said. “It’s only a matter of time before he finds me.
You’re harboring a fugitive. You’ve got to know it carries serious consequences.”
“The last place they’ll be lookin’ is right under their noses.”
“Is that so?” She sounded unconvinced.
“They think you’ve gone to Washington, you know.”
“Is that what they think?” She cocked her head.
“What would make them think that?”
“Now, why do you think?”
They stared at one another for a long moment. He knew his brows were knit, his eyes narrowed, and he could feel his lips slightly turned down. But her face remained completely expressionless. She stared at him with neither malice nor friendship and though he felt as though his soul could be sucked into those amber pools and lost there, he couldn’t read what the woman behind them intended to do.
“You know,” he said slowly, his eyes moving from her eyes to her lips and back, “you wanted to be seen on that camera.”
“What camera?” Her lips turned up slightly and one eyebrow rose.
He felt the heat rising in his cheeks and his brows knit tighter.
“Oh,” she said, perhaps sensing his mood, “that camera.”
“You wanted us to be searchin’ for you northward. And all the while you knew you’d be here.” She didn’t respond and after a moment, he added, “And these little games you keep playin’ with me are beginnin’ to foul m’ good humor.”
In Secrets of a Dangerous Woman, P.M. Terrell gives us a continuation of the Black Swamp Mysteries series where she weaves the many mysteries and secrets surrounding the life of Vicki and Brenda so seamlessly. Just like the first two books in the series, Secrets of a Dangerous Woman is filled with action, suspense, mystery, and romance.
I find it really hard to put any of her books down. The way Terrell wrote her books makes you want to keep turning the page and find out what happens next. As soon as you think it’s over, the characters find themselves in another bind. More and more secrets are being revealed and the series just gets better and better, more and more exciting.
I never thought I’d love reading suspense and mystery so much. P.M. Terrel continuous to amaze me with how well-developed her plot and characters are. I’m on the third series of the book and I still feel like I’m getting to know the characters more and more. Just when you think it couldn’t get better than the last book, she surprises you and delivers a better book than the last.
