Beguiled by Deeanne Gist and J. Mark Bertrand

Beguiled is a romantic suspense set in the heart of Charleston. Rylee Monroe is a dog walker/pet sitter for the wealthy society of Charleston, the area of the city where she was born. Due to tragic circumstances she now lives on the other side of the city; however the area remains in her heart. When her clients' homes start being burglarized and vandalized, Rylee finds herself in many precarious situations. Meanwhile, Logan Woods is writing a book about the cities' crimes, featuring this latest series of break-ins. He is introduced to Rylee early in an amusing way and the adventure continues through the end of the book.

This was a truly enjoyable read. The descriptions were vivid and beautiful, especially those of the city. The characters were engaging, and the storyline moved quickly, although slightly predictable. There was really no strong theme. The Christian message was minimal and almost seemed to be an afterthought, but it was a clean novel with Christian characters. I liked it and look forward to reading more by these authors, whether written together or separately.

Thank you to Bethany House, who sent me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
