Will Remy achieve her car racing dreams or will an obsessed fan stop her?
Race car driver Remy Borden likes fast things: bikes, cars, and men. Her plans to become the first woman from the Cayman Islands to race internationally gets sidetracked when she’s injured and pulled from the final race because of a fiery confrontation with another driver.
Life goes from bad to worse when the racetrack owner is killed and she’s suspect number one because his death puts her back in the race. But racing again proves difficult when Dr. Jackson Wilson insists she stop racing until she heals, making her wonder if his ‘doctor’s orders’ don’t have ulterior motives-the racetrack owner was his friend.
She and Jackson search for the truth behind the murder when accidents start happening at the racetrack, and an adoring fan gets too close. Soon the simmering attraction between her and Jackson boils over, forcing her to admit Jackson makes her think of a life beyond racing.
Elke Feuer does it again with “Deadly Race”! I was pleased to read this book, as I thoroughly enjoyed her book, “Deadly Bloodlines”. Once again, she introduces us to an amazingly strong female character, named Remy Borden. She is both a school teacher and a race-car driver. She lives in Cayman, and the accents and her descriptions of her island are breathtaking.
The story begins with a race that takes Remy to the ER for injuries to her ribs, after a crash that resulted in her car flipping over twice. Everything in her life goes downhill from there. Dirk (runs the races) took her out of the race that she most wanted to enter called “The Cayman Regional Race”, claiming that he could not have her drive injured.
She backfired by yelling at Dirk and stating that he will regret this choice all the way to his grave. After she said this in front of a crowd, I knew that Dirk was going to die, and she would be the lead suspect. But, in normal Feuer fashion, there is a lot more going on behind the scenes than just Dirk’s death…and it creates this marvelous story about the Borden family, Dirk and his business, and the races. She also has a love story integrated, which I was cheering on. I don’t want to give away the name of that person. Cannot ruin everything!
You will not be disappointed! Again, she touches on a lot of subjects, making this book appeal too many. I read this sitting outside one afternoon; it is a quick and enjoyable read.
Ooh, what a quick but intense read! The mystery starts off right away, and just climbs from there. Much like in Deadly Bloodlines, I wasn’t sure who was behind everything, and the ending had me surprised. Just when you think everything is wrapped up – it isn’t. Remy was a great character to stand behind, a tough woman who isn’t afraid to stand up for what she wants and believes in. This is especially the case when it comes to her love life, and I found that refreshing to read about. Wonderful series so far!
