Publisher's Description

When novelists Deeanne Gist and J. Mark Bertrand first met in a Houston critique group, they never expected where friendship would take them. She wrote romance; he wrote crime novels. But growing respect for each other's work culminated in the decision to try blending their talents into this wonderfully engaging story merging romance and mystery.

Rylee Monroe walks dogs in old-money Charleston, a part of the city recently targeted by a daring thief. Logan Woods works the crime beat for the local paper but dreams of a life as a nonfiction writer. When the string of robberies takes a strange twist, Logan sees the making of a once-in-a-lifetime book that seems to circle around this charming, eye-catching dogwalker. But pursuing the truth means ignoring that he seems to be falling for her. And what is she hiding in her past that could crack the story wide open?

Publisher's Weekly

Veteran romance writer Gist (A Bride Most Begrudging) teams with tyro crime writer Bertrand to create a mix of their specialties. Their hybrid is a crime mystery with an irresistibly attractive and oh-so-naïve dog walker named Rylee Monroe. A young adult resident of Charleston whose parents are dead, Rylee is accused of robbing her wealthy dog-owning clients. Aghast at being accused of theft, she pleads her case to her newspaper reporter beau, Logan Woods. Certain that sweet Rylee is innocent, Logan tries to protect her reputation until even he grows suspicious of the mounting evidence against her. Enter in old family ties and unanswered questions regarding Rylee's parents' deaths, and even Rylee is confused as to who's telling the truth. Fans of Gist will appreciate her characteristic genteel manner of presenting the male/female courtship dance. Bertrand's deftness at adding in the crime dimension lends depth to this likable yet predictable story. (Feb.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    Suspense is a genre I wish more Christian authors would undertake to perfect. Though difficult to master, this category holds us captive from page one and only very reluctantly releases us at the end of the story . . . unless it sneaks under our skin and invades our dreams. It's one of those genres we love to hate. It sets our nerves pleasantly on edge and we jump at shadows for days or weeks afterwards. If written well, suspense novels allow us to feel as though we live, breathe and solve the mystery right along with the hero or heroine.

    Beguiled by Deeanne Gist and J. Mark Bertrand is a thrilling example of a brilliantly written romantic suspense novel. It contains numerous twists and turns destined to keep you guessing until the very last page. The character depth and creativity add to the mystery, which grows with each fresh incident. This tale and its fascinating characters will swiftly capture your interest. It will not easily be forgotten once finished and reshelved.

    Taking place in Charleston's wealthiest neighborhood, Beguiled is the suspenseful story about dogwalker Rylee Monroe who finds herself mixed up and targeted in a series of unusual thefts. Logan Woods, a reporter with hopes that the Robin Hood Burglar will be the key to getting his true-crime book published, must decide to chase the story, the girl or the villain, all while avoiding the one thing he's most afraid of: dogs. Will Rylee and Logan risk trusting each other in order to uncover the truth of the Robin Hood Burglar's identity?

    Authors Deeanne Gist and J. Mark Bertrand apparently brought out the best in each other. Many a night I found it nearly impossible to put down Beguiled as I wanted to know all the secrets at once. As the story unfolded, my heart was more and more invested . . . and I was less and less eager to flick off my light at night. I look forward to reading more novels by Deeanne Gist and J. Mark Bertrand in the very near future.

    What do you consider a must-have for a suspense novel to keep you riveted?

    So, as I am on a Deanne Gist craze, I read this novel, and like all her books, I was hooked. The plot was good, and I really wish there was a 4 1/2 star rating on here. I thought the characters were believable and exciting and since I usually read historical fiction, this was a nice switch into contemporary Charleston. For all of you who enjoy romance, suspense, and Deanne Gist, don't miss this book!

    The book was ok. It was kinda confusing. But I'm 12 years old so it would probably be better for someone older. But over all it was was a good book. But it does have suspense. :)

    Mystery, suspense, romance, intrigue, and double-crossing make this a read-in-one-sitting thriller.

    Rylee Monroe is a dog walker in a wealthy Charleston neighborhood. She loves her job and her clients trust her. However a string of burglaries begin to plague the neighborhood and Riley seems to always be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Reporter Logan Woods is investigating the story and is intrigued but suspicious of Rylee. Though she claims to be innocent, she sure looks guilty.

    This book is beautifully written. The neighborhood and the characters are described in rich detail. It is fast-paced and keeps you hanging on until the very end.

    I must mention that I received a complimentary review copy of this book from Bethany House, but that in no way influenced my opinion of it.
