TITLE ~ Last Resort

AUTHOR ~ B.J. Robinson

PUBLISHER ~ Desert Breeze Publishing, Inc.

This suspense novel starts off on a hot, humid day in Bridal Wreath, Florida. Faith Grace Roussell has returned to her hometown after her broken engagement.  Her fiance, who considers himself to be a man’s man, has cheated on her and Faith calls off the wedding. On Faith’s return to Bridal Wreath, she is happy to be reunited with her best friend and confidant, Nan Gray. At a church gathering, Faith has the opportunity to meet her next door neighbor, Matt. He immediately intrigues her but Faith is definitely not looking for a new romantic liaison. Within less than twenty-four hours, a series of suspicious events take place. A stray bullet, a middle of the night intruder and the trashing of Faith’s shed, concern Matt as the plot quickly thickens.

The suspense mounts as Matt showers her with protection because he soon realizes that someone is definitely out to hurt her. In fact, there is more than one person out to get Faith but she is not the one in real danger. In reality, it is Matt’s life that is at stake. Someone is stalking them both. As the suspense continues, the evidence points to Fred, Faith’s abusive ex-fiance. He is a very elusive and focused stalker. What will it take to stop this jealous man who is determined to win Faith back?  He is like a driven maniac after his prey. What will be the Last Resort and how far will he go to get his way?

B.J. Robinson writes with flair.  She manages to incorporate her own love for God in a well-written, romantic, suspense novel.  She uses delightful expressions such as a “beautiful smile that reached his eyes” to describe the likability and genuineness of Matt’s character and personality.  The sunshine in Faith’s eyes match the love and twinkle found in Matt’s. The use of such descriptive analogies adds to the intrigue found in this novel.  B.J. Robinson also manages to add some real life people in her novel. Her deceased mother and sister are mentioned which enhances her story line and gives it more authenticity. She also includes her loveable dog, Sunflower, in order to further add to the storyline and give a very personal appeal to this enjoyable mystery novel.
