My rating: 4.5 Stars
Someone is trying to harm Rachel Grant.
First, she is attacked and robbed outside her family’s spa – then the greenhouse where she stores special plants for her new scar-reduction cream is broken into and trashed – and if that isn’t enough, a car tries to run Rachel down when she is riding her bike.
I love reading ‘Love Inspired Suspense’ books because they are quick and easy to read, full of suspense, have romance, and are mostly clean. I’ve had this book on my shelf for awhile and since I had the time, I decided to pick ‘Formula For Danger’ up and read it…finally!
I realize that this is the second book in the ‘Sonoma Series’ (the first book is ‘Deadly Intent’) and I probably should have read ‘Deadly Intent’ first. I don’t feel like I wrecked the first book, however, by reading them out of order – I just know a few extra details.
‘Formula For Danger’ starts out with Rachel getting attacked and robbed of a brand new laptop outside her family’s spa. From there the story escalates. The twists and turns kept me guessing and trying to figure out who the culprit was.
I really liked the characters, especially Rachel and Edward. Rachel worked really hard at her work in an attempt to please her father but all she got was rebuking and criticism.
Edward’s father was a workaholic and Edward doesn’t want his future kids to ever have to deal with the pain associated with a parent that chooses work over major moments in a person’s life – that’s why he distanced himself from Rachel when he saw her choosing work over family and friends.
Rachel thought he was rejecting her – when she finally starting to open up and be herself…
As you can see, ‘Formula for Danger’ has a really interesting plot. I loved the romance and mystery. I loved how the reader could play detective and maybe figure out the mastermind behind it all.
The only reason I’m giving this 4.5 stars is because I wasn’t totally captivated by the book in the beginning. I recommend ‘Formula For Danger’ if you enjoy mystery and romance.
