Problem #1: Julie McGuire and Dade Donovan are partners in their own law firm. Julie desires to be 
a full-time writer, but doesn't want to hurt Dade by leaving the firm.
 
Problem #2: Julie meets her favorite author, Tyler Jensen, at a writer's convention in town. Right away 
she's attracted to the handsome writer and he gives her much encouragement to leave her job to write. 
However, Julie's 'danger' sense flares up every time she gets in the same room with Jensen. She can't 
get over the premonition that something isn't quite right about Tyler Jensen. Yet her attraction is strong.
 
As the story unfolds, the tension tightens, the reader becomes agitated. Expectations for something bad 
happening are high. When Julie, who is fearful of heights, is faced with dying, she questions her ability 
to act to save herself. Can she push aside her phobia to save the day? And where is Dade?
 
Killer Career is a great story, written well, that explores a woman's feelings where love pulls her in two 
different directions. One thing I like about this story is that it brings out the fact that even though one may 
be raised in poverty, that one doesn't have to stay in poverty. A life can change given the will of the 
person involved.

  1. Sounds like a great read, Lu!

    Not sure why the formatting of this review came out how it did. Apologies, but I can't seem to correct it - my mate blogger seems to have a mind of his own. Grrr!
