When Marcus finally returns, he remains cool and standoffish and while Catherine suspects the reason for Marcus’ behaviour, she never confronts him about it.

While You Were Dead by C.J. Snyder

While You Were Dead by C.J. Snyder

For a while I didn’t read any romantic-suspense, even though it’s my favorite romance genre. The reason being that I was annoyed by the predictable plots and boring revelations of something I’ve known since page 10. You see, I was quite annoyed and in a real RS funk. So much so, that when I first picked up While You Were Dead, I didn’t get past the first 20 pages. I just wasn’t in the mood and that can happen but when I felt the time had come to give romantic suspense another try, I returned to this book. Thank you CJ Snyder for bringing back my love for RS and managing […]
