My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Swamp Ghosts is a delicious romantic suspense set in Florida. I devoured this book in an afternoon and with nearly 400 pages that’s a pretty good afternoon’s read. It was well paced with great characters and I lost myself in the storyline. I was out there in the St John’s River basin spotting the wildlife and wanting a snack at the crab shack too.
Maggie Devlin in a 32 year old eco tour boat owner. It’s a small business with plenty of costs and she’s wondering just how to pay all the bills. Gunnar Wolfe is a wildlife photographer, built like a Viking he has stunning features which make him popular amongst the local females.
Gunnar’s not at home on the water, but he asks Maggie if she’ll take him out into Florida’s waterways to capture some of the rare flora and fauna. Determined to keep this all a business relationship feisty Maggie can’t turn down the money Gunnar offers to pay her, but soon they discover one too many of the swamp secrets.
Rumours of a serial killer put fear in to the locals and when Maggie and Gunn become his next targets, they find themselves up close and personal with some serious Florida species.
I liked the fact I was kept guessing who the serial killer could be, and the suspense was edgy and well thought out. Within the storyline there were several other great sub-characters which I liked and am ready to read more about, hopefully in the next book in the series.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.
