Book Review: The Conspiracy


The Conspiracy by Kat Martin– Harper Winston’s brother has disappeared. Pursuing his dream of sailing the Caribbean, Michael hasn’t responded to texts or emails in days. When even the Coast Guard can’t find him, Harper is forced to take desperate measures. Which means going to Chase Garrett, once her brother’s best friend, now the only man she can trust…or so she hopes.

As the successful owner of Maximum Security, Chase has learned to trust his gut. He knows Harper’s father is mixed up in a deadly business, and suspects there’s more to Michael’s disappearance than meets the eye. Getting involved again with the Winstons goes against everything he stands for, yet old loyalties die hard. As the case draws him closer to Harper and deeper into the Winstons’ snarled crime family, he is forced to put everything on the line to keep Harper safe…and both of them alive.

Series: #1 in Maximum Security series

My Rating: 3 Stars

My Thoughts: This is book 1 in a new series. I’m normally a really big fan of Kat Martin but for some reason this one just didn’t check all my boxes. I didn’t feel connected to any of the characters and I didn’t feel any sparks between Harper and Chase. The story was just so-so for me and I’m not sure I will continue with this series. I think part of the problem was that I was expecting a romantic suspense and this was more of an action packed mystery with a hint of romance. It was heavy on the suspense and action scenes and while there were some sexy scenes they were low on the heat scale. The story is well written and had a good flow and pace. If I hadn’t been expecting a romantic suspense I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more.
