a romantic thriller and the first in the Pinnacles of Power Series created
by Jessica Lauryn.

of pain and grief. All she wants is to put those pain behind her and be a great
teacher. But when she learns about a murder that recently took place,
everything comes back to her. And as if she is being shoved to a specific
direction, a stranger with thick black hair and deep blue eyes leaves something
that reminds her of the elusive justice her father is owed.
the stranger, Ryan Newberry, turns out to be her new boss at the Washington
Valley Hotel, things get tricky for Abigail. Then, tricky becomes chaotic, and
is an exciting and suspenseful romantic thriller that urges the readers to keep
reading. The author successfully makes the readers to want to find out
the who’s and the why’s. Details are dropped
a little at a time making the story interesting and suspenseful. It is
difficult to choose the most likeable character as there are many. Some readers
may opt for the sweet, tough, and brave Abigail who is willing to do everything
to get the justice she deserves, while others may cheer for the secretive and
protective Ryan who is hell-bent on keeping Abigail safe. In general, this is
one enjoyable romantic thriller.
other readers may find the romance part a bit cliché, especially the frequent
arguments and the endless secrets between the male and female protagonists.
Furthermore, the cliffhanger ending may be a bit of a put off for readers who
prefer more palpable conclusion even for a book series.
