Circumvent is a Clean Read Mystery that is written by S. K. Derban. There are some descriptions of intimacy, foreplay but nothing that is oversexualized. The couple is very much in love and attracted together, but I wanted to make sure this was stated in this review. This is the first book that I have read by this author, and I enjoyed it. Her writing flows off the pages. Her descriptions of the places, the food and the surroundings brings the book to life in front of your eyes.
Nikki and Ruggiero Delemont are a newly married younger couple. Nikki is a food writer and Ruggiero is a pastry chef. They live in Maui. Nikki has been placed on assignment to her home country of France and Ruggiero cannot join her right away. She flies to France. However, when she arrives she is walking to her destination and someone is following her. They insist that she has the wrong bag and try to take her bag. She tries to get away. The next thing Nikki knows is that she wakes up in a hospital and has no memory of who she is or how she got there.
Ruggiero is VERY worried when he does not hear from Nikki. He knows something is not right. He goes over to find her, trace her steps, but someone is determined to not let Ruggiero find his wife. With the help of their friend Detective Kanaeholo you will go on a intense journey. Ruggiero will not stop until he finds her. I loved the interaction with Detective Kanaeholo and Ruggiero. They were so determined.
Well written characters, stunning descriptions, this is a MUST read. I look forward to more from this author.
I received a copy of this book through JustRead Publicity Tours, all thoughts are my own.
