Katherine Bonner with the golden eyes and a golden, enchanted life is well on her way to becoming a horse whisperer. Tall, athletic, she loves to ride, and she can usually exact good behavior from most wild steed, except from Pierce who bucks her at every crack of the whip.

Pierce is top honcho in charge of the fifteen hundred acre ranch, Bonner-Willow. Although he owns a Master’s in business administration, he loves to be around horses. He considers himself more of a cowboy than a CEO.

When Kat becomes the bearer of unexpected news about her past from ex-convict, ex-lawyer Victor Horn, she wonders how she will ever find her roots and manage to put the pieces of her life back together again. She turns to Pierce, the dark hair and blue eyed hunk whom Kat believes, thinks he is God's gift to women.

Pierce reluctantly agrees to help, partly for reasons of his own. He worries about his lawyerly father being involved with Victor's murder. As Pierce and Kat travel to Chicago together, they walk right into a criminal investigation headed by two bumbling detectives. Kat makes a date with a potential serial killer, and Pierce, whose affection for Kat is slowly changing to one of deeper commitment, worries about her safety. Meanwhile, Kat bumps into a doppelganger she believes is stalking her, only to discover that no one else ever sees her.

Mirror Deep uncovers many twists and turns designed to keep the reader guessing until the end. Through all the action, Pierce remains by Kat's side. Will he be able to hide from Kat his mounting desire? Will Kat find who this look alike is and why she is trying to warn her? Does Kat follow a stranger to Paris, France simply to put miles between her and Pierce or to avoid the threat of a potential killer?

I love a good mystery, especially one that keeps me on my toes and constantly guessing. Throw in a little paranormal activity for good measure and you have a really fun, intriguing read.

I liked Kat and Pierce from the get go and even though this book all about the mystery, it has some good family elements and a sweet romance too and let's not forget the horses! I love that this had sort of a down home country feel to it as well as a very modern feel, in fact, at first I wasn't quite sure if this was a modern read or if it was set in earlier times it just has that sort of feel to it.

This was expertly done with foreshadowing and clues dropped subtly along the way of who the culprit was and why they did what they did.

I loved the tension and friendship between Kat and Pierce and the fact that even though they are both adults they both still had their parents very much present and accounted for in their lives (sometimes not always a good thing however). I am always up for a good romance that is based first on mutual respect and friendship and the mystery element was really just an added bonus that keep me guessing and turning the pages.

This was an enjoyable read that I really think anyone that loves both romance and mystery (or even one or the other) will enjoy.

  1. It's really a testament to how easy I am that I would pick this book up simply because there's a horse on the cover. I grew up with horses, so anything that has horses in it is an automatic win for me! Sounds like the story itself is well done though, and of course the romance hugely appeals to me. I like that they were friends first:) Thanks for putting this on my radar Ali!

  2. I just started reading this book and so far I am loving it. Love romantic mysteries and the horses just make it so much better.

    1. So glad you are liking it Steph, thanks for stopping by!

  3. I'm so glad you enjoyed it Ali! I loved the setting as well, though I also enjoyed it when they went to the city. Thanks so much for hosting a tour stop and reviewing this one!

  4. Firstly I must agree with Jenny. I'd pick this book just because it has horse on the cover. I love those animals :)
    Anyhow I'm truly glad you enjoyed this one as it's totally new to me. Great review, Ali :)

  5. very interesting, saw this one pop out places lately. Glad you enjoyed it. The romance sounds sweet. Always love a good suspense, and the fact that the characters still have their parents in their lives.

  6. See I wouldn't pick up a book with a horse on the cover because I can't do animal books where the animal dies so I am glad this is a mystery full of suspense now that is one I would enjoy.

  7. Another great review. This one sounds good also.

  8. I love romances that are based on friendship and mutual respect and this sounds like exactly my kind of story. It can't hurt that there are horses and a mystery that kept you guessing. Thanks so much for putting this on my radar! Lovely review :-)
