First Chapter Review: Shady Deals by Cindy McDonald


Cindy McDonald is on tour with Pump Up Your Book to promote the latest book in her Unbridled Series, Shady Deals. This is a romantic suspense novel.

BLURB:  Kate West and Dr. Holden Reese have put their troubled past behind them and are ready to set a wedding date. There;s only one thing in Holden's way: a powerful drug Lord at Keystone Downs Thoroughbred Race Track has Holden under his thumb, and he's not letting go!

Kate's family is determined to get to the bottom the of horse drugging ring, and when the West's get too close to the truth the Drug Lord sends them a brutal message that can't be misinterpreted. Now Holden is on the run, and he's dragging Kate with him.

Can he escape his indiscretions?

How long can he keep Kate in the dark?

And how damning will the truth be when it's finally revealed?

COVER: I like it. The man and woman so close give you an idea this is a spicy, sexy novel, and the the horses above speak to the plot.

FIRST CHAPTER: Dr. Holden Reese and Kate West get cozy in the vet's office at the Keystone Downs Thoroughbred Race Track. The ringing of Holden's cell phone momentarily interrupts them, but when he ignores the call, someone is sure to be unhappy.

KEEP READING: Sure. The end of the first chapter has such a strong cliffhanger you are eager to keep going. The one thing that is challenging is that this book is one of a series and the two main characters must have some back story that comes up in previous books. To enter a series without having read the previous titles makes it a tiny bit awkward to meet the two main characters in such an intimate way right off the bat. If I had gotten to know them already, I doubt that would be an issue. This wouldn't keep me from reading more, but I wish I knew more about Holden and Kate before they were stripping down.
