Quick read once I had time to sit down and read. It was an ok book, some confusing back and forth at the beginning, the middle was really good and the ending felt rushed to me. It seemed like "here's who did it, let's get this story finished." I liked the mystery and idea of the book, but felt it could have been accomplished a little better. Will have to try another Heather Graham book in the future.

FBI agent Brock McGovern is going back to a place that holds bad memories. He had been arrested for murder and his young love had been swept away.

Three women are missing and it is his job to find out why. Is there a curse waiting to deal him a dose of justice….or a murderer waiting to be caught?

The History Tree…I love trees. I don’t know why, but anything about them makes me curious and a tree with a cursed history…well, I gotta know.

This is a convoluted mystery that spans decades. All the players are together again and I am crossing them off my bad list, one by one.

Heather doesn’t make it easy as she sends me off on one false trail after another…and I am happy to go down those trails…all the way to the end.

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Tangled Threat by Heather Graham.

Terrific book that sucked me in right from the start. It began with a prologue when Maura and Brock were eighteen-year-olds working at a local resort. They were in love and had plans for the future. But the horrific sight of a body hanging from the notorious History Tree, and Brock's subsequent arrest as a person of interest, derailed their plans. Even though he was released almost immediately, Maura's parents had taken her away. Now Maura is back at the resort filming videos and fighting the memories. Brock, who followed through with his plans and became an FBI agent, is sent to the resort to investigate the disappearance of several women and the remains of another.

I enjoyed the rekindling of the romance between Maura and Brock. They were stunned to see each other again after so many years. Their initial interactions were awkward. Brock remembered his heartbreak as Maura disappeared from his life, and she spent years hurt and angry that he never contacted her. But underneath the awkwardness and anger burned the feelings that never went away. I liked seeing them reconnect and get to know the people they have become since the events twelve years earlier. As they spent time together working on the disappearances, the chemistry and feelings between them continued to grow. Brock was protective of Maura and worried about her as the investigation heated up. Meanwhile, Maura worried just as much about him. I felt Brock's fear over Maura's safety at the end, and Maura's confidence that he would find her. I liked how they came together at the end, with their young love maturing to match who they are today.

The suspense of the story was very good. I was drawn in immediately by Maura's recounting of the story of the history tree and the ghost Gyselle. The descriptions were vivid, and I felt as though I was there. The terror at the sight of the hanging body leapt off the page. Twelve years later, FBI agent Brock was specifically requested to come to Florida to help with the investigations. That the person doing the requesting was the same detective who had arrested Brock was a nice touch, and gave an extra layer of déjà vu to the story. Maura arrived at the same time to do a video about the History Tree with her client. The presence of so many of the people from that previous summer gave Brock a wide variety of possible suspects for his investigation as it began to look like the resort was at the center of the disappearances. Every time I thought I had the villain figured out, someone else would make me question my decision. The tension increased as Brock moved closer to solving the crime, and he became especially concerned for Maura's safety. I was on the edge of my seat as his fears came to pass. I loved Maura's presence of mind and determination as she refused to become a victim. The final confrontation had an unexpected twist to it, as my suspicions about one character proved true, but I was blindsided by the involvement of another.

I liked catching up with the characters from that first summer. Besides the changes that Brock and Maura went through, it was interesting to see what transpired for the others. Some truly surprised me while others hadn't changed at all. I also liked the bit at the end about Brock's life in New York and his connection with Finnegan's. ( )

Tangled Threat by Heather Graham

Harlequin Intrigue series book.
Fast paced, stories of ghost in Florida, mystery.
Lovers reunited. Maura and Brock. Turns out he did try to contact her but her parents interfered. Twelve years later they finds themselves together with the same feelings.
Tame on the sizzle scale. Sex scenes are about three sentences long with no real heat.
The mystery of women disappearing has depth with plenty of suspects.
A bit rushed at the end where explanations occur in the epilogue.

I’ve read and still have on my shelves dozens of books by Heather Graham. She can tell a good story. ( )

This was a great, fast-paced read that I couldn't put down. Maura and Brock were each others first love when a murder occurred at the resort where they were working. They lost contact after that. Twelve years later, young ladies were disappearing near and around the resort and a couple were murdered. Brock, now FBI, is called in to investigate because of his knowledge and history with the area. That's where he meets up with Maura who's work has also taken her to the resort. Memories and unresolved feelings are needing to be faced and new feeling discovered all the while a murderer is on the loose and needs captured.
Exciting and romantic. A lovely story of first love, true love. ( )
