Arresting Developments


Title: Arresting Developments (Marshland Justice)

Author: Lena Diaz

Genre: Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance


Book Blurb:

A mysterious beauty had nursed him back to health—and attracted the attention of some very bad men… 


Somewhere over the Everglades, the airplane’s engine failed and Dex Lassiter plummeted into the swamp’s murky depths. Amber Callahan didn’t expect to find any survivors in the wreckage, but Dex was about as tough as they came. And too smart not to dig into why a woman like her had run away to settle in remote Mystic Glades. Or why a killer circled their every move. As floodwaters rose, deputizing Dex was just what this lawless small town needed. Because escape wasn’t possible. And the only thing Dex did better than starting things was defending them.


My Review:

Veteran pilot Dex Lassiter’s plane plunges mysteriously into the Everglades and he miraculously survives. Amber Callahan pulls him out of the swampy water and nurses him back to health.


Both are harboring secrets yet unwilling to divulge, wary of each other. When a bad storm floods the roads, Amber and Dex are trapped in Amber’s home with a killer. Surrounded by so-called friends and trusted associates, they try to narrow down suspects. As the body count rises, Amber and Dex need to catch the killer before they become the next victims.


A sweltering romantic suspense filled with a myriad of suspects and secrets. Amber and Dex are electric and I loved reading their romance. Both have a jaded past yet want to let down their walls. Mystic Glades and its inhabitants are addictive to reads and I wouldn’t mind living there. I highly recommend and I can’t wait to read more by Lena Diaz.


My Rating:  5 stars
