A Familiar Fear by Kathi Oram Peterson + Win This Book!

Ex-FBI agent Riley Scott lives each day with the scars of her former career. After the murder of her husband and the recent attempt on her own life by the Russian mafia, her heart is irrevocably broken. Agate Island seems like the perfect place to begin building a new future for herself and her teenage son, yet even before the ferry docks at their new home, Riley realizes there will be no escape for her. There, on the boat, is mafia boss Maksimillian Petruso—the man who took everything from her. The man she killed.

Matthew Taggart knows who Riley is and understands her reaction to his resemblance to Maksimillian Petruso. But Matthew is nothing like his estranged criminal father. So far, he has been able to hide from that evil world. However, he's afraid Riley's appearance on the island may lead his family's mafia connections to his doorstep. After all, she is the agent who took down his father.

Matthew needs to leave town. Fast. Unfortunately, when the family wants to find him, there is nowhere he can hide. Now he and Riley are thrown together in a dangerous connection, and learning to trust each other is their only hope of survival.

This kind of suspense book is perfect for me.  I'm a lightweight when it comes to suspense- I just can't read things that get me too worked up or scared.  Kathi Oram Peterson writes suspense I can handle.  I wouldn't say this was my favorite of her books but it was good- gripping me from the first moments and keeping a steady pace of action and suspense all the way to the end.

I thought the author did a great job of weaving together the past back story with the present.  It flowed well.  The kids were a great addition to the story line and helped the main character, Riley, feel more human.

Content:  some violence, kissing, some talk of God and praying but nothing religion specific or preachy.

- I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.  All opinions expressed are my own.
