Hail Mary by Hope Anika – Review by Karyn Taylor

Hail MaryHail Mary by Hope Anika
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hail Mary is a fantastic romantic thriller by Hope Anika. I had never read any of this author’s work before this book and I’m so glad that I chose to read it as it’s worth more than 5 stars in my humble opinion.
The 2 main characters are absolutely brilliant. Wynn has had a rough upbringing and now runs a farm and a rundown boarding house. She’s one feisty woman I’d definitely not want to get on the wrong side of. She takes no prisoners and will fight to the death for those she loves. Beau is the new sheriff in town. A job he didn’t really want but was pushed into by his aunt. Beau is ex-military and DEA and has a lot of baggage from his past. He was badly injured and his wife was killed by someone Beau was investigating while working at the DEA. He’s moody, arrogant and a woman is the last thing on his mind. That is until a bank robbery leads him to Wynn’s boarding house and then a serial killer from the past comes back. So much for an easy job being a sheriff in a small town!
The interaction between Wynn and Beau are actually hilarious. She does nothing to hide her distrust for the law and he gives back as good as he gets.
What is fantastic about this book is the plot. The suspense and intrigue grabs you and does not let you go. At times you hold your breath and have to remind yourself to breathe again. Just when you start to think you might have it sussed out, the story twists and you find it going in a different direction. I have to say that I would never have sussed out who was the killer.
You really have to give this book a try. It will not disappoint.
