Elizabeth Hoyt: Once and always

Elizabeth Hoyt on kirjoittanut nimimerkillä Julia Harper romanttisen jännärin, jossa venäläiset gangsterit ryntäävät amerikkalaiseen pikkukaupunkiin pahat mielessään: Once and always (Piatkus, 2015; ISBN 978-0-349-40857-6).

Kirjassa on ammuskelua ja välienselvittelyä riittävästi vaativampaankin makuun, ja makeaa siirappia mausteena. En ihan ymmärtänyt millaiselle lukijalle teos on kirjoitettu, kaikkea tuntui olevan liialti, myös lunta.

Small town cop Sam West certainly doesn't mind a routine traffic stop: speeding ticket, stern warning, and sayonara. With a whopper of a blizzard closing in, that's all he has time for.

But the lawbreaker he pulls over is anything but typical. From her mile-long legs to her razor-sharp wit, Maisa Bradley is like nothing Coot Lake, Minnesota, has ever seen ... and she's about to take Sam on the ride of his life.

Whoever said blood is thicker than water probably wasn't related to a former Russian mobster. But an innocent mix-up and rumours of stolen diamonds soon have the Russian mob taking an unusual interest in the sleepy little town - and Maisa facing heated scrutiny from a certain tall, dark, and handsome deputy. Sam's dazzling blue eyes beg her to reveal all her secrets, but how much should she tell? Getting snowed in with the sexiest cop in the frozen north may not be the worst way to decide.
