Deputy U.S. Marshal Casey Sloane has worked at the St. Louis Marshals office for two years and is given a routine assignment to help transport a reporter to D.C. to testify before a grand jury. Valerie, the reporter, was writing a story about an up-and-coming environmentalist who suddenly disappeared and, she later discovered, whose backers purportedly have ties to a terrorist.
When the seemingly ordinary assignment suddenly takes a shocking turn, Casey is forced to put aside her own feelings about the unexpected reappearance of a man from her past as she and two other Marshals take Valerie on the run. And as it becomes dangerously clear Valerie’s testimony has even bigger implications than they knew, they’ll do whatever it takes to make it out alive.
Blind Betrayal had my attention form the first sentence to the last. While it was geared as a romantic suspense I found myself not drawn into the romantic part so much this time. I really wanted to know how this story was going to unfold.
I found that I kind of liked being dropped into the story between Casey and E.J. There wasn’t all of that getting to know you stuff that sometimes can seem…..unbelievable.
Casey and E.J. were a good pair. Their background together was far from perfect but I really liked how they were able to heal from it.
While God does play a big role in this book, I find it interesting how Mehl always weaves in into her stories. Like it is just a natural part of being a U.S. Marshall or FBI agent.
You don’t have to read the first two in this series to understand this book, but seriously you just should read them because this whole series is a great read. I hope there is more coming!
