Review: Sizzle by Julie Garwood

Rating: 3

Film school student Lyra Prescott unwittingly films the scene of a crime and now she seems to be a target for a series of dangerous "incidents". Her roommate and best friend, Sidney, has brothers in law enforcement who find Lyra an FBI bodyguard to watch out for her until she is safe. FBI agent Alex Buchanan is on a short leave from the Agency, but takes his responsibiity seriously. As Alex and Lyra spend every moment together trying to solve the mystery of who is trying to kill Lyra, they become attracted to each other. Alex is on leave for only a few days, but he realizes that no one else is good enough to protect Lyra.

Garwood is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. Her novels are usually very taut and suspenseful. This novel has several plot lines going which adds to the suspense, but also detracts. Sometimes it gets confusing as to who the "bad guys" really are. Sizzle is entertaining, but not one of my favorite Garwood thrillers.
