Virtual Book Tour: Chemical Attraction by Christina Thompson

Romantic Suspense

Date Published: August 28, 2012

FBI Agent Joe Roberts wants that instant chemistry like his sisters, Eva and Taylor, have with their husbands. After years of searching, he’s ready to give up on that romantic notion. Then, he meets Madeline. The problem is she’s his contact on this dangerous case.

Dr. Madeline Pierce works in nanotechnology research. When she discovers a criminal network within her medical facility, she’s partnered with Joe. Throughout the investigation into the production and distribution of illegal drugs, Joe and Madeline struggle to stay professional despite their intense attraction to each other. She wants to trust his sweet words but wonders if she’s just a fling.

Police Chief Matt Connor adores his wife, Eva, and works hard to keep his family and rural town safe. When farm animals become violent and meth labs become abundant, his calm demeanor is tested. Eva Connor, a petite spitfire, has an opinion on everything and you know it whether you want to or not. However, her confidence is shaken when she’s used as leverage against Matt’s inquiries. With this case now personal for Matt and Joe, they will do whatever’s necessary to protect the women they love. As the ensemble hunts for this new bio-weapon, the dangers intensify putting their lives at greater risk.

These intertwining relationships must transform into stronger bonds if they want to win against this horrific threat. Love should trump evil, but will their love for each other survive these tests without severe repercussions?
My Review:

I really enjoyed this one! When I first started reading, I had forgotten what the book was about and thought it was a romance or something similar. Don't get me wrong, romances are fun and I enjoy reading them. I just thought, by the cover, that it was going to be a little more like a light read than it was.

After getting through the first few chapters, that had a lot of characters to become acquainted with, I really got into the book and understood that romance was only a part of the story. There is so much more there and it really draws you in.

This is actually a really good thriller with a strong medical mystery story line. The action is pretty fast paced and there is enough humor thrown in to keep it from being too tense. The characters are complex and well developed, as is the story line. There are enough twist and turns to keep you guessing throughout the book. 

It is a great beginning to what I hope becomes a popular series. I look forward to reading the next installment and plan to recommend this to all my mystery loving friends.
