Full Disclosure by Tamara Tilley

4 1/2 Stars

Full Disclosure introduces Ciara Arden and Danny Janzen who share a special bond, established when they met as orphaned young girls at the Marriot House for Children. Danny is now a successful artist and Ciara manages the business side of things. Their peaceful life is shattered by an assassin's stray bullet which blinds Danny and threatens her burgeoning career.

Jack Campbell is a man devoted to his job, a Secret Service agent assigned to protect the President's son so when an assassination attempt seems to have gone awry, Jack intends to unearth the killer.

Sparks fly as Jack's heavy handed approach frightens and infuriates the independent Ciara who dislikes the intrusion upon her and Danny's private lives. For the first time Jack's tunnel vision approach to his career is under threat as he finds himself distracted from his official duties with thoughts of Ciara and her safety. When a mystery friend returns and the killer strikes again, Jack and Ciara's faith and relationship hang in the balance.

Tamara Tilley has penned a riveting novel of suspense and romance that will satisfy fans of either genre. Jack and Ciara are well-developed characters and while their relationship starts with predictable distrust and angst, there is nothing passe about their interaction. Their dialogue remains true to their vibrant personalities and their attraction is electric! Tamara's minor characters add a further dimension to the story with the issue of Danny's blindness providing an extra emotional twist.

Tight suspense, enthralling romance and appealing characters all add up to a terrific debut novel from an author I will seek out again. Tamara's second novel, Abandoned Identity, releases later this year by Evergreen Press and I can't wait!
