Review: Double Take by Kerri Nelson

Double Take by Kerri Nelson

Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Heat Rating: 2



After growing up the laughing stock of the town drunk and humiliated by the hottest guy in school, Kennedy Wolfe planned on never stepping foot in Greece, New York again.

Now a highly decorated agent for the FBI, Kennedy learns of the abduction of her best friend from high school. The news comes just days after the invitation to her class reunion was received and tossed.

Despite her better judgment, she can’t resist the urge to take on a case that would show her classmates once and for all what she’s really made of.

Damon Divine is the unbeatable District Attorney and he’s dead set on finding those responsible for abducting his twin sister. But when the beautiful Agent Wolfe comes to town, he knows the kidnappers won’t be the only ones on her hit list.

After all, standing up a girl on senior prom night is not something she’s likely forgotten.

Denise's Review

Kennedy Wolfe put high school and her hometown behind her with a self-made promise to never look back. After making a name for herself as a respected FBI agent, Kennedy is called home for the first time since kicking the dust of her former life off her shoes. First in the form of an invitation to the high school reunion, which she ignores with ease, and then with the news that her childhood friend, and twin sister of the guy who stood her up at prom, has been kidnapped. Walks down memory lane are different when you hold the cards, and Kennedy is determined to show all the former naysayers just exactly what she’s made of.

This was a relatively fast read; the action is good and the character interaction lives up to its promise. Ms. Nelson struggles a bit with simultaneous action (in the opening sentence, someone speaks while pausing), and the writing is flat in some areas, but this shouldn’t detract readers from the story. Overall, an entertaining read.
