Form the Back Cover:
Deputy Detective KC Tanner, guards his private life much the same as his Doberman, Zappa, guards his home. He's content to live a life of solitude, hiding behind the wall he's carefully constructed around himself. Trouble is Sharalee MacArthur, stuck in a fantasy world of her own making, still envisions KC as the man she will one day marry. That is until reality shatters his isolation and dashes her hopes, and a madman running loose in their homey little community has Shar and KC running for their lives.
A twig snapped.
His head turned toward the sound and caught sight of Sharís black
trench coat as she ducked behind a thick pine. KC ran through the woods, jumping over downed limbs and thick weeds. Just as he about grasped a handful of material, she ran in another direction.
KC sped after her, finally fisting the coat in his grasp and halting her progress, pulling her back flush against his chest. He could feel her body tremble with each large gulp full of air.
He wrapped his arms around her waist, his cheek nestling against her riot of curls. Breathing deeply, her sweet musk scent encompassed
him and took hold of his gut. He hadnít even realized how much this
woman had become a part of him. His next breath seemed to depend on
A day hadnít gone by in the last fifteen years that hadnít been
brightened by her smile and presence. Even as a little girl of nine years old, she had charmed him beyond measure with her girlish pranks. He had protected her like a brother, cared for her like a father. But
today--he felt anything but fraternal. His erection lay trapped between them, begging for appeasement. And damn if he didnít want to appease it.
Word Weaving Review by Cindy Penn
Very Highly recommended!
FA«ADE by Pat Rasey is a heart stopping, adrenaline-pumping novel that you dare not start at bedtime if you intend to be up in the morning. Addictive from the first shocking page, FA«ADE will reveal the dangers that lurk beneath the most innocent appearances.
Rasey has an extraordinary talent for creating characters with depth and
complexity, while weaving a quick moving plot that lures the reader into a world of murder and intrigue. Extraordinarily, Rasey can capture the
essence of a brutal murder all the while maintaining a sexy, lusty subplot with sharp quips counterbalanced by grace. While all of Rasey's novels are hits, this is the best one yet, earning a very highly recommended rating and an Award of Excellence from WordWeaving.
Tracy's Book Reviews br Tracy Eastgate
Once again author Patricia Rasey has given her numerous fans and readers a book that has definitely been worth the wait. Filled with action and suspense, thrills and chills, FA«ADE will grip you from page one and not allow you to put it down until the final page is read and then you will yell for more. This book goes beyond just a Suspense / Thriller, Ms. Rasey has also filled it with love and betrayal, joy and heartbreak. Characters so vivid they seem real and bring you there in the book with them.
This is a 'must
have' for your private book collection.
Royal Scribe Review by Janice K. Wagner
Pat Rasey grows more and more adept in intricately weaving a complex, layered plot with flawed, yet lovable characters and a love story that will melt your heart. FACADE is by far the best work Rasey has written to date.
Not only is this book overflowing with heart-pounding suspense and fascinating details of police forensics, but also gruesome minutiae of sadistic murder. And the love scenes are so scorchingly hot that they'll melt the paint off the walls. The intensity of her approach to her latest prose matches that of Diehl and Harris, so the squemish beware. The pacing is fast and the writing is perfect. Not one word is wasted nor a moment dull. Thriller devotees will be up all night, as I was, riveted to this page-turner. Pat Rasey demonstrates yet again, why she's become an author to reckon with.
