The Cost of Betrayal (The Cost of Betrayal) by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, Lynette Eason

In Dee Henderson's novella "Betrayal," Janelle Roberts is freed--thanks to people she doesn't know--after serving six years of a twenty-year sentence for a murder she did not commit. But a murderer is still at large, and Janelle needs to be somewhere safe with someone she can trust. She may not survive another betrayal.

In Dani Pettrey's "Deadly Isle," Tennyson Kent is trapped on the isolated island of her childhood by a storm surge, and she is shocked when the typically idyllic community turns into the hunting grounds of a murderer. Cut off from any help from the mainland, will she and first love Callen Frost be able to identify and stop a killer bent on betrayal before they become the next victims?

In Lynette Eason's "Code of Ethics," trauma surgeon Ruthie St. John saves the life of Detective Isaac Martinez. After a betrayal leads to him getting shot and then attacked while in recovery, Isaac is now a key witness determined to testify. But someone is intent on silencing him--and those around him--forever. Together, Ruthie and Isaac go on the run, desperate to escape the killers hunting him.

I am a fan of these three authors so I was giddy with anticipation when I got this book.  I love books with both romance and suspense which is what attracts me to these authors and their books over and over.

Of the three books, I would have to say that Dani Pettrey's was my favorite with Lynette Eason's a close second.  Both of these books had fantastic pacing and had my heart beating a little faster than normal.  I loved how they felt complete and full despite being a little bit shorter than usual novels.   I wasn't a fan of this story by Dee Henderson.  I felt like it was slow and there was so much missing.  The suspense was not there at all.  I'm not sure what happened there because I usually really love Dee Henderson's books.  I hope there will be more collections like this one!

Content:  Some Christian elements, violence (death), kissing
