Peek Inside Deadly Trouble

The charmingly remote retreat in Belize should have been heaven... if Lily Sanborn's idea of heaven was a gazillion degrees, humidity, and enough mosquitos to require daily transfusions. Just as she decides to make the best of her tropical destination, she stumbles upon big trouble. When murder, kidnapping, and police corruption suddenly intrude on Dr. Cooper Deforest's peaceful jungle world, he wonders just what sort of person Lily is. He can’t get over the fact that wherever Lily goes, death seems to follow...

Las Vegas embalmer Lily Sanborn’s vacation at the remote retreat in Belize should have been heaven…if her idea of heaven was a gazillion degrees, humidity, and enough mosquitos to require daily transfusions. Just as she decides to make the best of her tropical destination, she stumbles upon a murder, witnesses a kidnapping and meets the most attractive man she’s ever seen.

Dr. Cooper Deforest is seriously attracted to this stunning woman with a razor-sharp tongue. In fact, he is having the damnedest time trying to keep his hands off Lily. But when murder, kidnapping, a drug cartel and police corruption intrude on his peaceful jungle world, Cooper wonders just what sort of person Lily is.

Even though their chemistry sizzles, Lily’s trust issues get in the way. As much as Cooper wants this woman, he can’t get over the fact that wherever Lily goes, death seems to follow…

I admit that this book started off a bit slow for me. I just didn't love Lily at first, although I thought Cooper was charming and interesting.
