Review: Better than the Best @amabel_daniels

TITLE: Better than the Best
AUTHOR: Amabel Daniels
RELEASE DATE: November 2nd, 2015
FORMAT: Paperback & ebook
SOURCE: complimentary copy

A new beginning. Turning a leaf. All that crap. 
After her divorce and the death of one of her patients, an ER nurse, Kelly Newland, searches for a fresh start in the little town of Churchston. As she learns to accept her failures in life, she befriends some of the locals, except for one disgruntled man, the hero everybody loves to hate. 
He could feel their stares on his back, their judgments hovering over their heads. 
Will Parker suffers from PTSD, and as the black sheep of the sleepy lakeside community, he struggles to get back up on his feet. Initially, Kelly and Will mix like oil and water, but as a series of dangerous incidents strike the people closest to them, their antagonism turns from cool to hot. It is only when they realize it is impossible to resist each other that a killer closes in on them, threatening the love they've dared to find. 

Amabel Daniels lives in Northwest Ohio with her patient husband, adventurous toddler, smiley baby, and a collection of too many cats and dogs. Although she holds a Master’s degree in Ecology, her true love is finding a good book. When she isn’t spending time outdoors, she’s busy brewing up her next novel, usually as she lets her mind run off with the addictive words of “what if…”


When you start reading and the first thing you read is about Kelly trapped in the bathroom while her husband is cheating on her, you expect to sort of romance where the main lady rediscovers herself. Well ... this book is far from that.

Yes, Kelly moves to this lovely little town and tries to start over and forget about the past. There is some tension with this guy, Will who is not so bad. But somehow people around here have strange accidents. At the same time, we read the POV of a really strange woman who is after Kelly and we do not know why.

Overall, the mystery is really good. You keep turning the pages trying to guess what's going to happen. The writing is really good. And the characters are great. There were some sex scenes which I thought were also a good addition.
