Ashes, Ashes by Julie Coulter Bellon Book Review
Are you ever really innocent until proven guilty?
Sophia Naziri is wanted for questioning in the murder of a U.S. senator. She’s worried the police will show up on her doorstep any moment, but when Detective Colby Black appears, it’s to help her put out a kitchen fire, not take her in. Yet. His easy smile and persistence in getting to know her pushes all her troubles to the back of her mind, until a hit man tracks her down. Getting arrested becomes the least of her worries and the handsome detective could be her only way out---if she tells him the truth.
Colby Black’s sniper skills have been a blessing and a curse to him. As a member of a Hostage Negotiation Team, he can use them to save people, but sometimes he can’t protect the innocent despite his best efforts. When a hostage situation goes bad, he tries to put it behind him by helping out his mysterious next-door neighbor, Sophia Naziri. But she pulls Colby into a web of lies and conspiracy that will force him to use every skill he has in order to survive. Faced with the moment of truth, can he trust anyone around him---including the woman at the center of it all?
Ashes, Ashes is a great suspense/action novel with a little bit of romance too! I was intrigued from the beginning of the book when you meet Colby, who is a sniper on a hostage negotiations team. He loves to bake and clean?!? What??? How could I not fall in love with his character? Colby can come over to my house any time he feels stressed :) I really enjoyed the suspense and mystery of the novel. It wasn't one of those where you know what is going to happen and who did what. I was on the edge of my proverbial chair throughout the book until the end. If you are a fan of suspense novels then I highly recommend Ashes Ashes by Julie Coulter Bellon! Five stars!
