Book Review – A Reason to Kill by C.P. Smith (Reason #2)

You’ve met Jack from “A Reason To Breathe” now meet his cousin and lumberjack Max, Max Hunter or as Mia likes to call him Thor, God of Thunder

You know what they say about lust at first sight…..It’s a seven deadly sin but when you sin . . . you sin hard.

Max Hunter has a problem, well, two, actually. One he fished out of the river and the other…A killer.

Mia Roberts has a problem that stands six foot five and swings an axe like a God. On assignment to study the grizzlies of the Alaskan frontier, she stumbles across a body and then stumbles into the arms of a lumberjack she can’t resist.

Throw in Max’s mother, a handful of crazy friends and family and you have a recipe for adventure.

4 1/2 out of 5 stars

Mix: Max plus Mia (left, at least in my head) and you have one hell of a story!!

Mia, clumsy, bear-loving scientist goes to Alaska on a research trip for her company and runs (stumbles, really) into Max, a mountain of a man who happens to be a lumberjack, owning the company that employs half the town of Trails End.  Max finds Mia sexy as hell, but knows (as he points out often) that she is a pain in his ass.

Mia discovers that her boss is trying to shut down the lumberjacking in Trails End, and she vows to stop him.  Next thing you know, he’s dead, and she is the number one suspect.  Why?  Because she was overheard telling him she would stop him at all costs.

This book was great from start to finish.  The people in the town were HILARIOUS, especially Max’s mom and her friend.  They sold sex toys and were absolutely a riot.  I totally pictured Jess Day from New Girl as Mia – adorkable.  And Max – oh Max, you alpha male.  I just LOVED him.  I really hope the next book is about Shane.  Love this series and want many, many more!!
