Fated Always by Becky Flade
Fated Series #4
Oh, oh, oh what a marvelous read! Let me also say that even though this is hailed as book #4 in the authors Fated Series, I had no problem with getting up to speed immediately to verify that this is a completely stand-alone read.
Tala Gael leads a quiet private life, living alone in a small cabin at the edge of a forest. A forest that she is very familiar with and the animals who reside there. After all, she has won a grant to study and observe the animals she loves and understands better than any human. Life was good. She had a boyfriend Derrick Sloan who she was comfortable with, but not necessarily in love with.
But then, her best friend ever, Sawyer Gavin returns to town and all of a sudden Tala’s comfort zone is turned upside down. Sawyer, evokes all the passion and love Tala wasn’t ready to admit to nor share her innermost secrets with.
However, when Tala attempted to break things off with Derrick, she found out that she had totally misjudged what kind of man he was and soon both she and Sawyer found themselves as suspects in a murder.
Lots of suspense, thrills, and one heck of a twist ending are treats for the reader of this highly recommended read!
