Into the Night continue the stories of a team of special FBI profilers. Each book focuses on a different crime and a different couple so they are stand alones. However, if you like one book, you will enjoy them all! Imagine Criminal Minds and add in 2 of the agents in a steamy romance and you have the Killer instincts series!
All the agents have some tie to a serial killer-previous boyfriend, family member, victim. In this case Macey is the only surviving victim of 'The Doctor'. When it looks like he has resurfaced, Macey and her partner Bowen rush to NC to look into it. However, they quickly realize there is a LOT more going on.
The story takes place mostly in the Smokey Mountains and Gatlinburg, TN. They mention a specific trail and mountain and I just had to look it up. I have a need to see things on a map.
So, this gives you an idea of the trail they begin to investigate (specifically the Rainbow Falls trail up to Mount Le Conte). It doesn't really matter, but if you are a visual person like me, you will enjoy being able to see a map of the place they are talking about!
Back to the story! Macey and Bowen are on the hunt for a copycat killer who has killed 2 serial killers the FBI was hunting (wow-that is a lot of killers in one sentence!). The action really does read like a TV show, and if you enjoy these types of tropes, you will really gobble up the story. The romance between Macey and Bowen starts as a 'just this once' kind of thing, then it becomes a secret romance because they don't want to let anyone in the FBI know. So, basically, its just sex at night, business as usual by day. That always works out, right? ;)
What I have enjoyed about all the books in the series is they aren't predictable. You keep wondering who the villain is, then once its revealed, you wonder how he/she will be caught, then you wonder if its really over! Eden is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors because her books always keep me on my toes!
