“A Familiar Fear” by Kathi Oram Peterson
I have read other books by this author so I was really looking forward to this one! Unfortunately my 16 year old son took it to read as soon as it came in the mail so I had to wait to read it. 😉 Lots of suspense, action, and violence due to the subject matter.
Steady, fast paced plot which kept me on the edge of my seat the entire night reading it. I liked the main characters Riley Scoot, Matthew Taggart and their 2 kids. I couldn’t imagine running for my life while trying to protect my kids and family from the Russian mafia.
You won’t be disappointed reading this clean suspenseful book-Very well written!
I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.
About the Book:
Ex-FBI agent Riley Scott lives each day with the scars of her former career. After the murder of her husband and the recent attempt on her own life by the Russian mafia, her heart is irrevocably broken. Agate Island seems like the perfect place to begin building a new future for herself and her teenage son, yet even before the ferry docks at their new home, Riley realizes there will be no escape for her. There, on the boat, is mafia boss Maksimillian Petruso—the man who took everything from her. The man she killed.
Matthew Taggart knows who Riley is and understands her reaction to his resemblance to Maksimillian Petruso. But Matthew is nothing like his estranged criminal father. So far, he has been able to hide from that evil world. However, he’s afraid Riley’s appearance on the island may lead his family’s mafia connections to his doorstep. After all, she is the agent who took down his father. Matthew needs to leave town. Fast. Unfortunately, when the family wants to find him, there is nowhere he can hide. Now he and Riley are thrown together in a dangerous connection, and learning to trust each other is their only hope of survival.
