In Where Evil Waits (Mann Family #2) by Kate Brady, people are dying around Kara. Thinking her husband's death was an accident, everything is in question now that Kara and her son are threatened. Receiving frightening 'gifts' and no longer safe, Kara, a prosecutor, seeks help from Luke. The one man who might be able to keep her safe.
Luke is deeply involved in the criminal world, and not someone Kara would usually find herself associating with. But there is more to him than meets the eye, and Luke is going to do what he can to keep Kara and her son safe. Neither of them trust easily, but they no longer have a choice when they are trying to outrun a mad man with his own agenda.
Kara and Luke both have things they are hiding, but secrets must come out for them to stay safe. The truth is so much more and different than either of them imagines. Will they find answers, and along the way a future neither of them expected? Or will it be too late?
Kate sucked me in and kept me glued to the pages of Where Evil Waits! Kara and Luke are both strong characters. Kara is smart and loyal, and will do what it takes to keep her and her son safe. I would have liked a bit more background about Kara's adult life and marriage to help me know her better. Luke is also smart, loyal and so protective! Kate really brings him to life and made me love him from the start...no matter what brush he was painted with! I liked how Kara and Luke interacted and worked together with a subtle attraction nibbling around the edges. Their characters, their feelings are believable and very like-able.
Kate gives an intriguing addition to Where Evil Waits with flashes of the killer/stalker's POV. This adds a very edgy dimension to an already action packed, suspenseful story.
What you see isn't always what you get...sometimes you have to dig a lot deeper as Kate demonstrates well in various ways in Where Evil Waits. Where Evil Waits is fast paced and easy to become immersed in. Kate weaves the plot with lots of mystery and the unexpected to make you stay and find out what and why!
I'd recommend Where Evil Waits to readers who enjoy a suspenseful mystery with romantic undertones.
