Maverick Touch: The Highway picks up where Maverick Touch: The Cat left off, albeit a year later. Nadia Maverick, her sister, Annabella, and the ever mysterious, Mr. A, are off to Houston for what is supposed to be a relaxing vacation. Note the word supposed. With Nadia, things rarely go as planned.
Mr. A introduces the ladies to a friend of his, Mr. J. If you read the first book, then yes, you guessed it; Mr. J is in the same business as Mr. A. There is an attraction between Mr. J and Nadia’s sister, so you have a small side story going also; which I love. I’m the type of reader who likes to know about the other characters as well as the main ones and Ms. Nemer delivers.
So how does Nadia’s vacation not go as planned you might ask? What else, but she finds a story that needs telling. Which of course leads her to the danger/mystery part of the story.
Maverick Touch: The Highway is a fast read like The Cat was. Also like the first book, there’s a good old fashioned mystery along with humor and believable characters. I enjoyed this book, but like the first one, I wanted more. Hey call me greedy. But like The Cat, The Highway leaves you knowing, hoping, that there will be another addition to the story. There just has to be. Right Ashley?
Summary from Goodreads:
Nadia and Anabella head down to Houston, Texas, for what they thought would be a relaxing vacation. Nadia could work on her travel news articles for her boss in Cedar Rapids while Anabella caught a few rays of sunshine. Or that was the plan. Little did they know what trouble lurked inside the luxurious hotel nestled in the center of downtown Houston.
When Carlisle Ali introduces Anabella to his friend and brother-in-arms, Carter Jackson, all hell breaks loose for the Mavericks. Trouble never has a problem finding Nadia when she is out and about looking for a story. Be it Cedar Rapids or Houston, it doesn’t matter. Nadia finds a way to cause chaos and disaster.
What happens when Mr. A and Mr. J go out on a hunt for the man who is terrorizing people along I-45, the interstate running through the heart of Houston? More importantly, what happens to Nadia and Mr. A when they are forced to face the feelings that have been boiling between them for over a year now?
