Devil and the Deep
Julie Ann Walker
Well, this was my first Julie Ann Walker book, but it so didn’t work for me. The characters were almost like satires. You have your typical, rich, southern belle and your southie Boston boy. You are reminded of this every time they speak or think. It was actually getting a little offensive after awhile.
I was enjoying the plot. Our hero, Bran, and heroine, Maddy, met in the previous book and she is in the area on a trip with 3 girls who won a scholarship her father is sponsoring. I’m still not sure WHY they went to the Dry Tortugas…the scholarship was for girls who wanted to study petroleum engineering. Of course, not an hour into their time on this most deserted island, they are kidnapped for ransom (PS-this happened in book 1 to Maddy as well…) Bran is there to go all bad ass SEAL. I assume everything worked out okay because I just gave up at chapter 5.
I liked the plot and I think there was some potential there for a great romantic suspense; I love romantic suspense. So, I will probably try another Walker book to see if this one was just a fluke, ya know. Have you read any of her books? Tell me in comments if you have a favorite I need to try!
