Just Evil
— Since I love a good suspense, I was happy to give this book a read and provide an honest review. The fact that it has a dash of romance, as well as a solid mystery, just iced the cake. —

Someone has an ax to grind.

Driven by a simmering thirst for revenge, an unknown killer is dropping bodies faster than the police can keep up. Leaving just one enigmatic clue behind at each scene to connect the victims, the killer leaves a trail of bodies that all lead to Kit’s doorstep.

Kit Griffin is a survivor.

Kit has worked hard to overcome the brutal legacy of her past, coming out the other side of her struggles as a strong, confident woman. Having rebuilt her life in a small community far away from the place she reluctantly calls home, she spends her days selling books and the pastries she bakes, surrounded by the family of her choosing.

All her hard work threatens to go up in smoke, however, when her famous mother, actress Alanna Stevens, is found brutally murdered in her wealthy home. Loaded with motive to kill the woman who raised her, Kit immediately becomes the primary suspect. If she hopes to find answers and prove her innocence, she will have no choice but to do the one thing she swore she would never do again – go home.

Jake Boston knows all about being hunted.

Jake spent years building his software business into the international success it has become. When his wife was found dead, however, everything he had built threatened to come crashing down around him as a determined detective worked diligently to put him in prison for a crime he did not commit. Two years later, he is still haunted by the specter of her unsolved murder and what is cost him.

When Jake hears that Kit is the prime suspect in Alanna Steven’s murder, he is the first to step up and declare it impossible. Having worked with her in the past, he remembers the young woman she was and knows she is innocent. The moment he learns that the same detective who hounded him after his wife’s murder has now set his sites on Kit, he immediately takes steps to come to her aid, determined to help her prove her innocence.

Together, Kit and Jake dig into Alanna’s past, looking for clues. While uncovering heartbreaking truths, dirty deeds, and shocking secrets about her mother and her life, Kit stumbles on a decades-old wrong committed by Alanna. Armed with this information, they set out to locate the one person they believe holds the key to these crimes, only to come face to face with a killer.

Just Evil is an action packed, suspenseful ride, full of twists and turns that is sure to keep you turning pages. Packed with well crafted characters, a strong plot, and a very devious mystery, this book is sure to keep you glued. Vickie McKeehan clearly has a strong grasp of what it takes to suck a reader in as she has written a thoroughly engaging romantic suspense that pulls at the readers heart while sneaking up behind them to say “boo”.
