But not 5 stars bcos there wasn't any reason given for why the person did what he did. Faye just assumed about the reason and secondly the author didn't tell what was in the blue velvet pouch. I so wanted to know. May 29, Shirley Linn rated it it was amazing. A great start to a new series. A Private Investigator looking for a missing person and a woman on the run from her past. Add in the dangerous marshland filled with predators like alligators, man eating snakes and a panther and it is a miracle anyone survives but, what is even more dangerous is the secrets that she is running from.
This is a great book and I would definitely recommend it. Jul 13, Alisha rated it really liked it. Great start to a really fun series! Nov 25, Carmen Pacheco rated it it was amazing. I saw an episode of Burn Notice once where someone was lost in the Everglades and they were worried about panthers mauling the person. Please welcome back the wonderful Lena Diaz and her first book in the Marshland Justice series, Missing in the Glades.
Lena Dunham - Wikipedia
Jake Young is trying his hand at PI work. What a first case! Just when Jake catches a break and finds the abandoned vehicle of the victim, a shot rings out too close for comfort. All she knew for sure was that a private investigator was trying to find Calvin. The attraction is a distraction, of the best kind. He looked down at her fingers working his belt loose, and that brief moment of lost contact between them was just enough for the haze of lust to allow his brain to switch back on. What was he doing? This was crazy, wrong on so many levels. She trusted him, and he was betraying her with every breath he took.
Can withholding information, delivering bold-faced lies, and general deceit with a healthy helping of subterfuge be forgiven…all in the name of love? Neither Faye nor Jake can point fingers here. The plot deepens as thick as the marshland when new characters are introduced and seem beyond eager to find silence? Any just why does Faye care so much about what happens to him?! Oh, this was good! Lena Diaz deftly threads a needle of intrigue throughout the story and subplots.
We gain necessary insight, but delight in the unexpected outcomes!

Jake and Faye surprised themselves by how quickly they clicked; their chemistry both compatible and steamy. Separating romantic emotions from duty was challenging Jake and Faye gravitated so naturally towards each other, but Ms. Diaz writes it with a fine tension; just with that bit of edge to keep you engaged. In less than pages, Missing in the Glades is fast-paced and meant to be concise. Do not confuse those features as a sign of mediocrity.
I read a complete, fleshed out story unearthing secrets amidst an exotic backdrop. The wow factor is all Lena Diaz. This novel had so many great elements to it.

I loved the characters! Lena does a twist by making the heroine quirky, yet strong and sexy too. And did I mention quirky? Faye Star reminded me of a gypsy with her hip-long hair, flyaway skirts, and magic potions. Not to mention her equally great aptitude with a rifle or a knife! Meanwhile Jake Young is by contrast reserved and almost staid in comparison. This book is in turn funny and dangerous and exciting.
He ran his hands over her silky hair and slid his fingers in it. Or at least, he tried to. And her hair was… warm? Hot breath panted against his face. A sandpapery tongue licked his neck. He stared into a pair of deep green eyes. They belonged to a black panther. I recommend Missing In the Glades to anyone who enjoys a little laughter with their suspense.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book I've read by this author so I went in with few expectations. I figured it would be Romance: It fulfilled all my usual expectations and then some. Jake, a Florida cop on leave, was trying out life as a partner in a private investigation firm with his wealthy buddy, Dex.

His first case was to locate and apprehend Calvin Gillette for Quinn Fugate, a soon to be retired FBI agent whose career is marred by one unsolved case. Following a lead, Jake ends up in Alligator Alley when he finds Calvin's car off the road in the swamp.
This is where he first meets Faye, Calvin's foster sister. From the beginning they experience an immediate, almost visceral attraction that they both find difficult not to act upon. To gain Faye's confidence, he lies about why he's searching for Calvin telling her he's trying to reunite him with an unknown long lost brother. Faye is a new age spiritual type who sells potions and lotions in Mystic Glades, a small community in the swamp and has her own share of secrets to keep from Jake.
Death at First Sight by Lena Gregory
Free spirit that she is, Faye enjoys loosening up the tightly wound Jake to the point that they can hardly keep their hands off of each other by the end of the book. Their secrets are slowly revealed to one another fueling mutual suspicions. There were plot twists at the end, one I kind of suspected but the other not so much. I enjoyed the interaction between the main characters as well as the quirky characters of Mystic Glades. In fact, I look forward to the next Marshland Justice book coming out next month which picks up Dex's story.

Faye knows more than she is saying, but so does Jake; howe Another great romantic suspense by Lena Diaz, one of the masters of the genre!
Faye knows more than she is saying, but so does Jake; however they agree to pool their resources and search together. The Florida swamp is a genius idea for this type of story, especially given the superb characters: They both have their strengths, they need each other to find Calvin, and they complement each other perfectly. And I loved how they instant attraction they felt developed in a very unconventional manner.
Diaz has crafted a solid story, with several plot twists, some quite unexpected, complex and wildly entertaining characters, and I cannot wait for the next instalment in the new Marshland Justice series!
