About the book:
Anne Mason thinks she’ll be safe in the Midwest building a wind farm. She may be dead wrong. Someone is dumping bodies in her corn field and telling Anne they are gifts – for her!
As the body count rises, Anne realizes a cold-blooded serial killer is patiently waiting and watching her every move – and he won’t stop until he ends her life. It is clear there are no limits to this killer’s thirst for revenge or how far he will go to get it.
After a nasty divorce, Anne Mason does not want to get romantically involved, especially with ex-husband’s attorney, Michael Brandt.
The ruggedly handsome new County Prosecutor is the last person Anne can trust, but may offer her only chance at survival from a psychopathic killer. But will she survive the passion that rages between them?
Anne’s days just keep getting worse. She is in the middle of a divorce, her soon to be ex-husband’s attorney is extremely handsome and to make matters worse, he saved her from a drunken man last night while she was at a bar and now she is sitting across the table from him at the divorce hearing. Anne is beyond angry when she finds out that Michael is representing her ex but she can’t help but secretly be attracted to him.
To start a new life after her divorce, Anne decides to give her ex everything he wants while she takes over Golden Acres Farm. Once she arrives, she starts to feels like she is living a new chapter in her life, until she finds that Michael is her next-door neighbor. She tries to stay away from him but he is determined to be in her life especially after a body is found on the farm, as a gifted present to her. Throughout this book, Michael works to keep Anne safe and to find her stalker before he can get to Anne.
My favorite thing about Deadly Offerings was the relationship between Michael and Anne. She wants absolutely nothing to do with him while he wants everything to do with her. She pushes him back and he pulls her forward and somewhere in the middle a spark was created and feelings start to bubble. The feelings between them make it hard for the characters because Anne wants to be strong during these horrible events and protect, not only Michael’s life, but also his career, thus she pushes him away. However, Michael cannot leave her side for the fear that something might happen to her and he wouldn’t be there to safe her.
I was constantly wondering who this killer was, what connection he had with Anne, and why he targeted her. This book was a good and quick read. ~MC BookWhisperer Reviewer~
