Dangerous Testimony by Dana Mentink completely lives up to its’ genre as a romantic suspense, with strong emphasis on “suspense’. This book had me up until 3 in the morning wanting to know what would happen next. So many twists and turns!
After Candace witnesses a killing committed by a gang member at a gas station, her commitment to testify is the cause of repeated, sinister threats on her life and her young daughter Tracy’s life. Candace must use all her skills as a detective, combined with her sisters and mothers’ detective skills, and her long time friend Marco’s SeAL tactics to stay a step ahead of a truly evil gang leader. Marco brings in fellow SeAL team members to help keep Candace and Tracy safe in a self designated safe house.
It seems like each time Candace leaves the safe house to go to a destination that is necessary ( ie a doctors office, a courthouse, etc.), the gang leader (Jay Rico) and or his subordinates find her and attempt to kill her and at the very least terrorize her. The frequent twists in the story kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.
I highly recommend “Dangerous Testimony” to readers who enjoy a well written suspense and romance. Plan fo r a sleepless night!
