Shiver of Fear
Northern Ireland is no longer at war with itself. But when Devyn Sterling goes looking for her lost mother, she discovers the undercurrents of trouble are still there. She'll need to trust Marc Rossi to get her out - alive.
Devyn's husband had been murdered a few months before on the night she was going to tell him she was getting a divorce. Now a widow, she has to find her birth mother and warn her of what her husband knew. That trail leads her to Northern Ireland.
Marc Rossi's cousins have just started a new detective agency, the Guardian Angelinos. Their first client is a consulting job for the FBI. Marc, an ex-FBI agent himself, works for the Guardian Angelinos part time. He's the best person for the job. He has to go to Belfast and convince Devyn to leave Northern Ireland and return home to Boston. That is all the agency is told - that she must leave Belfast.
Marc goes to Belfast and "accidentally" bumps into Devyn. While she is waiting for her mother to return to the hotel in a few days, Marc convinces her to take a sight-seeing trip up the Ireland coast. While up there, Devyn spies her mother and chases her, but the woman disappears. Now she is more determined to find the woman and warn her. Marc tries to get her to leave Belfast, staying with Devyn when she refuses.
Shiver of Fear continues the story Roxanne St. Claire stared in Edge of Sight. Devyn is determined to warn her birth mother of what her husband had done. Her own parents had been distant most of her life. Perhaps this other woman, Sharon Mulvaney, would be better. Devyn knows her birth father is an Irish gangster. She doesn't feel she has a place in the world.
I enjoyed this sexy romantic suspense novel. Shiver of Fear takes the reader through modern Ireland and terrorism from around the world. Nothing is as it seems as Devyn works on her quest or as Marc helps her. He is sure he knows what type of woman she is; instead he finds more than he expects.
St. Clair keeps the story moving with some interesting clues - like the bells in Enniskillen. The twists continue until the end of the mystery.
