Review: Alive at 5 by Linda Bond

TV news reporter Samantha Steele is one panic attack away from losing her job. Future on the line and cameraman in tow, she follows her mentor on an exhilarating adventure vacation. When he dies while skydiving, her investigative instincts scream “murdered”, and lead her to gorgeous thrill-seeker Zack Hunter. Zack is an undercover police officer investigating his uncle’s death through the same adventure vacation company. Samantha is a thorn in his side the moment they meet. Not only is she investigating the same case, but the emotionally wounded loner doesn’t want another partner, especially one whose goal is to splash evidence all over the evening news. But Samantha’s persistence is quite a turn-on, and Zack’s overpowering desire makes it harder for him to push her away. When the killer turns his attention to Zack, Samantha might be the only one who can save him, forcing the anxiety-riddled correspondent to finally face her greatest fear.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alive at 5 is the romance suspense debut from Linda Bond who was a television reporter and just so happens that’s what the heroine Samantha Steele is. No time is wasted in throwing you right in the middle of the action. How these two first meet was defiantly a new one. Zack Hunter is a police officer and has gone undercover to try and find out how his uncle died. It’s tied into a company that provides adventure vacations. Zack is currently on a skydiving excursion and when it comes time for him to land there is a woman directly in his way with no way to avoid her. Samantha Steele is their along with her camera man to film all the adventures her mentor will be doing with the adventure company. Problem is when its his turn to jump there is a problem on the way down and he dies before hitting the ground. It doesn’t take Samantha long to figure out that Zack isn’t there for just the thrill seeking, that he lost someone too on one of the trips. So these two forge a alliance to basically go undercover together to figure out who is murdering the clients of the adventure group.

If you like your romantic suspense fast paced with plenty of action scenes this is defiantly one you wont want to miss.
