Bookstore owner Kerry Emerson finally seems to be back in control of her life. Her failure of a marriage firmly in her rearview mirror and her recent business expansion a success, she is in charge of her own future. One that is looking better than ever.
The sight of the tall man, with the familiar salt and pepper goatee pushing open the door of her store, sets her hair on end. He doesn’t exactly bring good memories.
FBI Special Agent in Charge, Damian Gomez, is just looking for a decent cup of coffee when he walks into the small store offering books and brew. The pretty, feisty woman behind the counter is an unexpected surprise. Not at all unpleasant, especially since her finger that used to hold a wedding ring is now bare.
Her wild hair, boho style and silvery grey eyes suddenly hold a lot of promise. But when his office is pulled into an international investigation into the trafficking of rare books and manuscripts, the straight-laced SAC realizes he has to keep his distance from the woman who might well be involved.
Easier said than done, since fate seems determined to throw them together.
Keeping 6 is a wonderful mystery romance with great pace and a variety of characters to keep the story interesting.
The romance between Damien and Kerry builds really well, it is realistic for their age. Kerry and Damien are mature characters so both have life experience and issues to overcome. Damien was a typical alpha but learned quickly about being with a strong independent woman. Their love built up with moments in life that make you adjust your expectations.
Damien’s family were funny and frustrating and their parts in the book helped tie these two people together. Kerry needed to see what family was all about and this made her yearn for different.
The law enforcement story was a slow simmer throughout the story and built to a good climax. I did not pick the double cross.
Would love to see if Myra gets a story after her traumatic involvement. I kind of felt a connection with Keith.
Keeping 6 was an enjoyable story that kept me entertained with a wonderful mix of characters.
Quote: This is trust. The need to share every flaw, every thought, every honest moment. This is love.
