Book Review: The Ideal Man by Julie Garwood

Book Review: The Ideal Man by Julie Garwood

I’ve been a long time fan of Julie Garwood’s novels. From the sweeping historical sagas  set in the Scottish Highlands, Regency England, or the American West to her suspense-filled contemporary crime dramas. In both her historical and contemporary novels she weaves connecting characters from one title to another without making it seemed forced or overdone. While Garwood’s historical romances will always be my favorites among her work, she  weaves quite the engaging suspense novel.

In The Ideal Man, Garwood introduces us to Dr. Ellie Sullivan, a brilliant young woman who has just completed her residency at a large urban hospital and must now make a decision about where to go next.

For Ellie, this decision is not as simple as it seems. Not only does she literally run into a lethal situation as she ends her day at the hospital, she is haunted by a trouble twisted past and the very real threat of danger from both her past and present.

Becoming ensnarled in a high-profile FBI investigation further complicates her life, but it does not come without perks. The lead agent on the case, Max Daniels seems not only committed to safe-guarding Ellie through her current problems, but o solving her past ones as well.

Once again, Garwood matches hero and heroine in an  interesting and entertaining tale full of twists and complications that will surely keep you flipping pages to the end.

The Ideal Man by Julie Garwood will be released by Penguin Books on  August 9, 2011 and will be available through your local independent bookstore and other retailers.
