Juliet Longstreet had short blonde hair with more than one cowlick. She was the
youngest girl in a family of five brothers all older. She was also a Deputy United States
Marshal who in her spare time ran three miles, lifted weights, and trained with firearms
for three hours at a time. Juliet was just your average outdoors girl.
Ethan Brooker was 6’ tall and broad-shouldered with black eyes and short dark hair.
Major Brooker was a career Special Forces officer, a West Point graduate, and a
widower with a wife who was murdered a year ago. He dropped it all to push for
answers to who killed her and why. That charge into the unknown had resulted in his
meeting Juliet months ago. Juliet’s boss considered Ethan a magnet that attracted all
kinds of fecal matter.
The plot is fast paced, with action happening from North America to South America and
back. Ethan has to put his combat skills back to work when the President has a little
problem and to keep Juliet out of trouble. Juliet is being stalked by an escaped convict.
Her troubles are complicated by her niece, Wendy and the family dog, Teddy, a
deceased Golden Retriever. Wendy keeps Teddy’s ashes with her in a cracker tin.
With sparks flying between Juliet and Ethan when they meet this time, these two action
types keep very busy with romance as well as bad guys. They just have to watch for
Teddy’s ashes, because there is no telling where that cracker tin will turn up.
Carla Neggers has done it again. I enjoyed Dark Sky as much as I did The Carriage
House years ago. This book sparkled. The characters were alive and the pace was
non-stop. Carla Neggers writes timeless stories that can be read over and over again. Dark Sky is just the latest classic. Buy her books. You will love them all.
