In Body of Evidence (Evidence Series Book 2) the protagonists are strong, intelligent and too beautiful, the action is too over the top in places and the sex scenes feel too contrived, but somehow everything comes together and keeps the reader on the edge of his/her seat for much of the book.
Dominick is known to be a “shark” with no personal life, and Mara Garrett is the niece of Andrew Stevens, the man Dominick believes is complicit in acts against our government. Dominick watches Mara bravely face a firing squad, and he seems lost in a pool of unfamiliar emotions. Her strength is obvious in most ways, but when it comes to Dominick, Mara acts like a silly teenager.
Grant does a good job with her “bad guys,” making Mara’s former fiancé, Evan Beck, as despicable as he needs to be and has the reader wondering how Mara ever agreed to marry him. Her loyalty to the men in her life is evident, especially when it comes to her uncle Andrew, but showing loyalty in the face of Evan’s abusive and domineering treatment of her was difficult to swallow.
The storyline of Body of Evidence was an exciting one with very few boring moments as I turned the pages, so if one can suspend reality and just buy into the relationship if the protagonists, this is a fun book to get lost in on a cold winter day.
