Killjoy Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Killjoy

Unlike her other romance books, Julie Garwood has written a real thriller in Killjoy.

Avery Delaney has always tried to put the past far behind her. Abandoned by her rapacious, conniving mother when she was raised by her grandmother and beloved Aunt Carolyn. Then, when she was eleven, witnessed her grandmother's violent death, before Avery was shot herself and left for dead. Miraculously she survived. The man responsible is serving time in a Florida prison.

Her razor-sharp mind and ability to gather data and decipher evidence has made Avery an expert crime analyst for the FBI. But soon she will have to use every one of her skills on a case that hits painfully close to home.

Avery's workaholic aunt, Carolyn Salvetti, is certain her husband sent her the gold embossed reservation to the posh Utopia Spa in the mountains of Colorado. At first she is resistant, but then she figures it will be a welcome respite from the cutthroat advertising business. Plus she
persuades her niece to join her for the two weeks of luxury and decadence.

But Carolyn never makes it to Utopia. Under false pretenses, she is taken to an isolated retreat by a handsome stranger with a dazzling smile, suave demeanor, and the darkest of motives. His name is Monk, a hired assassin. Now with scant moves and fewer resources, Avery must track down and save Carolyn-and try to outmaneuver a brilliant killer.
