New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s first book in her suspenseful Gravediggers series, featuring an elite group of mysterious men who might be dead to the world, but are also tasked with saving it—and no one can ever know.
The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families.
Sometimes the dead do rise…
Solomon Lange is a dead man walking. A former black ops agent, he was disavowed and stripped of all honor before being recruited as a Gravedigger. But his honor and good name no longer matter, because no one knows he’s alive, and he’ll never get the recognition he deserves. His mission is simple: save the world or die trying. And for God’s sake, don’t ever fall in love. That’s a rule punishable by death. The kind of death a man can’t be brought back from.
Tess Sherman is the only mortician in Last Stop, Texas. She has no idea how Solomon Lange ended up in her funeral home, but she’ll eat her hat if he’s only a funeral home assistant. Solomon is dangerous, deadly, and gorgeous. And she knows her attraction to him can only end in heartache.
Solomon is on a mission to stop the most fatal terror attack the world has ever known—what’s known as The Day of Destiny—a terrorist’s dream. But when he discovers Tess has skills he can use to stop them, he has to decide if he can trust her with secrets worth dying for. And, most important, he has to decide if he can trust her with his heart.
Tess manages a funeral home…yes she is a mortician! Who writes a book about a mortician???? Liliana Hart did! And she did a pretty good job of it! Of course, it helps that the funeral home has an active amount of good-looking, HOT, black ops agents living and working in it! These good-looking, HOT, black ops agents are gravediggers. You need to read the book to find out exactly what that means!
Tess lives in a small town of Last Stop, Texas. No, this place does not exist….I looked. It is the perfect place for these good-looking, HOT, black ops agents to pull off their stunts. (Did I mention they are HOT!) Tess is not really a happy camper about this. The funeral home was bought out from under her. She was supposed to be the next owner. Then, she is not! This leads to some tense situations, especially between her and Solomon. And boy oh boy, do things heat up NICELY between these two!
As most of you already know….romantic suspense is one of my guilty pleasures. This book was more romance and less suspense. I don’t think any action took place till the last quarter of the book. Kudos to the author for keeping me entertained enough to give it 4 stars. This is all because I adored Tess and her friends and family. Her mother is a piece of work..she could have a book devoted to her antics!
I received this novel from Simon and Schuster as part of XOXPERTS for a honest review.
