Review: Body of Evidence (Evidence #2) by Rachel Grant

Blurb from Goodreads:
And she thought facing a firing squad was bad…

When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.

What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States.  
My Review:
Probably my favorite overall genre in this world is romantic suspense.  So I am definitely always on the hunt for new to me authors in this genre.  I am happy to report that I have a new author in my romantic suspense arsenal -- Rachel Grant!  I love this series and I really liked this second book in it.  Although this is the second book in the series, they are standalone in that you wouldn't need to read the first book in order to read the second.  

Body of Evidence is fast paced, thrilling and I really wasn't sure what was going to happen! The fine line between love and hate danced in the background of every interaction between Mara and Curt, but it was a really great and slow build up to their romance.  I generally scrutinize all books involving attorneys and practice but this book felt true to my profession.

For those fans of romantic suspense, this book will satisfy your craving!  I highly recommend if you like authors like Linda Howard, Sandra Brown, and Elizabeth Lowell.  Plus, the first book in the series is free on kindle HERE!
