My Thoughts

Texas Smoke Screen is written by Jessica R. Patch. This is part of the Quantico Profilers series. It can be read as a stand alone. This is also part of the Love Inspired Suspense line. This book will draw you in within the first few pages and not let you go until the end.

FBI profiler Vera Gilmore has had a rough several years. A fire killed her husband and left her with a lot of scarring that she tries to keep hidden. She’s called into consult for Serenity Canyon, Texas to assist with profiling an arsonist that has been setting fires and killing people that are close to news anchor, Tracey Tisdale. Vera is working closely with former sweetheart, Brooks Brawley.

Brooks is also a widow. His wife passed a few years ago and he has a pre teen daughter that can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Both Brooks and Vera have been carrying around some pretty heavy guilt and need to forgive themselves.

In true Patch fashion there’s action and suspense at every twist and turn. The author has left us with a huge list of suspects. The storyline is intriguing and full of adrenaline pounding scenes.

Thank you to the author and publisher for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
