MAGGIE’S REVENGE is book six in the Wounded Hearts series and is my first read by author Jacquie Biggar. This is a clean, romantic suspense.
Maggie is a DEA agent who’s being held hostage by a Mexican/Chinese mafia leader. Adam is Maggie’s partner and ex-boyfriend. He, along with their boss, Amanda, enlist the help of Adam’s friend and former Navy SEAL, Frank to rescue Maggie from the Mexican cartel.
There’s several players in this story and maybe if I had read this series from the beginning, I would’ve gotten more background on all the characters. And I only want more because I really liked all of the characters! Now, I described the book as a love triangle but there’s no cheating or anything like that. It’s more like two best friends who are interested in the same girl. However, the romantic aspect takes a backseat to the suspense in the plot.
This was a fast read and I actually would’ve liked some scenes to have been expanded on, especially the various blossoming romances between certain characters (wink, wink!)! Overall, a good contemporary thriller with strong characters! Told from various POVs with a happy for now ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
