EC Sheedy is an author I have enjoyed reading from Perfect Evil. In this romantic suspense, one might recognize Gus Hammond from Killing Bliss. However, this novel does it's best to explain some of his darker, more tormented moments as he decides to befriend and protect Keeley Farrell.
Keeley has always loved and adored the woman who raised her and gave her a home, Mary. When Mary passes away and her refuge home becomes Keeley's it becomes her mission to continue the woman's work for mothers and children. Giving them a place of refuge in time of need. But everytime, she turns around it seems like others are fighting to keep Mayday House from remaining open. Keeley can not understand why.
Keeley must find a way to save the home financially and at the same time discover why so many are anxious to shut it down. Apparently, her beloved Mary had many secrets that she had felt guilty about at the end of her life. But what were those secrets? And what made them worth killing for?
Sheedy does not disappoint her fans in her latest suspense. Readers are treated to non stop action and witty dialogue. The characters are easy to identify with and there aren't so many questions in the reader's mind as they are treated to the exact motivations behind each individual at some point. I highly recommend this to other suspense fans.
