About the book:

Some things you can’t forget.

A body hanging from the infamous History Tree unraveled their teenage love. Now Maura Antrim is again tangled up with Brock McGovern. Twelve years later, they’re back where that murder occurred—where Brock had been arrested and then released, where Maura had run, too scared to stand by his side. But with two women missing, and Brock now an FBI agent, Maura is determined to help. Together, they’ll have to confront a threat that never died and see if their passion has withstood the test of time.

Tangled Threat by Heather Graham is a romantic suspense book and I’ve become quite hit and miss with this genre. This story involved a second chance between the two main characters so I thought maybe it would be a real hit as I love romance characters with a history between them but alas that wasn’t the case.

Maura Antrim and Brock McGovern had been a couple twelve years before as they were both working at a resort. However when the pair had come across a dead body hanging from the what was known as the History tree the relationship quickly ended. Brock unfortunately was arrested for the murder of one of their co-workers and Maura’s parents quickly whisked her away from the deadly crime. Brock had been quickly cleared of the past crime and later went on to become an FBI agent.

Maura has now returned to the scene of that long ago murder being a video producer that has been working on a new project about historical macabre events. Maura never expected when she arrived at the resort she’d once worked at to find that Brock was also staying there now actually working a new crime of a mysterious disappearance.

Quite honestly for me I had a hard time getting into this story. The book is a short one and with trying to learn the past and present going on with these characters I never really felt myself caring about the couple or story the way I should with a suspense read. I personally chalked this one up to the fact that it was short it didn’t have enough depth to bring me really into the story leaving me to rate it at two and a half stars.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

  1. Excellent review Carrie. I have almost given up on romantic suspense. It’s hard when you don’t connect with the characters. Better luck with your next read. ❤📚
