Accident prone Grace Michaels was at it again. Wouldn’t you know it, the first time she met Ren Morello, the town’s new sheriff who was renting her parent’s house across the street from her home, Grace had fallen over in the bushes with her backside sticking up in the air. One way or another, accidents always seemed to find Grace. That incident was just the beginning for Grace whenever Ren was around. However, it soon became apparent to Ren that Grace’s mishaps were really threats against her life.
Ren Morello was not looking to start a relationship with any woman, especially Grace Michaels. Ren knew that Grace was the type of woman who wanted a husband and after being hurt by his ex-wife, he wasn’t gowning down that road again. But, when the threats continued to be made against Grace’s life, it became more difficult for Ren to fight his growing desire for Grace as he tried to keep her out of harm’s way. And, if that wasn’t enough on his plate, Grace had the audacity to proposition Ren into having an affair.
Continuous threats made against her life with a hunk of a man as her neighbor, all have GRACE UNDER PRESSURE. Melissa Schroeder has crafted a tale that is a remarkable blend of thrilling suspenseful action, humorous comical relief and delicious sexual encounters that will curl your toes. The plot was filled with witty dialogue and surprising events. I give Ms. Schroeder two thumbs up for managing to withhold the bad person’s true identity until the dramatic conclusion. Just when I thought I had figured out who was behind the threats against Grace’s life, Ms. Schroeder threw me for a loop. I was totally surprised by the villain’s identity! In addition to the great suspense, this novel also contained a spicy romance between Grace and Ren. The chemistry was so hot between the couple, so much so, I was going up in heated flames. Overall, I found GRACE UNDER PRESSURE to be a delightful read.
