A Fantastic Romantic Suspense, New Series to Come!
“Winslow was a woman apart. In beauty. In brains. In sex appeal. Her confidence was as alluring as those freckles across her face.”
Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry is the first full-length book—an enemies to lovers romance set in a small town— in a brand new series. A romantic suspense surrounding a series of mysterious deaths that plague Quincy, Indigo Ridge features Winslow Covington as the new sheriff in town who needs the help of the Eden family in order to get better footing within her new community and solve this case.
Griffin Eden is the eldest of the Eden siblings and the current head honcho of the family ranch. It’s his job to cooperate with the local law enforcement, but his one-night stand with the mysterious Winn, becomes a bit more complicated when he realizes that Winn is Winslow and she needs to investigate the latest death that occurred on his ranch.
“Griffin Eden was tantalizing. Magnetic. Rugged and bold.”
I so love when romances, yes even romantic suspense stories, start off with a case of mistaken identities. Strangers who commit to a one-night stand and are inevitably thrust together again makes me giddy because I love the angst and inevitable drama-filled scenes with the characters. Griffin and Winn are my favorite types of main characters! I love it when both hero and heroine are so obstinate about what they want, that they become blind as to what is actually happening between them. Both Winn and Griffin play a really good game of emotional chicken.
Winn is the type of character who has to prove herself not just to her new station and staff, but also to herself. She’s in a new town, her grandfather is the town mayor, she just got out of a terribly long relationship and needs to find her footing, but she also can’t deny the insanely combustible chemistry she has with Griffin. Winn’s character stays true to herself despite outside pressure to change and acquiesce to the general public opinion. She’s truly an iconic heroine, and I hope we get to see her more throughout the series!
“Casual was becoming a craving. We’d sailed past uncomplicated weeks ago. Whatever boundaries we’d erected had been destroyed.”
Griffin has a big family, and with a big family comes big drama. When that drama gets wrapped up in the series of deaths that have occurred in Quincy, Griffin has to decide whether he can trust Winn and continue a relationship with her, or deny everything that evidence points to at Indigo Ridge. Griffin is my new book boyfriend. Despite having one hiccup with Winn, he ultimately proved himself as prime time boyfriend material in the end. He’s the alpha, the gentleman, and the ultimate good guy wrapped into one tall, handsome package. Griffin Eden is book boyfriend catnip personified.
If you can’t tell, I truly loved Indigo Ridge. I loved the darker edge to the plot, the mystery surrounding the deaths, and honestly the twist at the end caught me a little off guard but in a good way! Devney Perry knows her sweet spot with her books and she’s hit all the right notes with this one! I know The Eden series will be one of my favorites if every book hits just like this one!
