review: sleepwalker by karen robards

Mick followed in her father’s footsteps and became a Detroit cop years after witnessing her mother’s murder. The trauma of that event frequently leads to her sleepwalking which is how she comes across the men who are burglarizing Uncle Nicco’s house on New Year’s Eve. Not about to let them get away, Mick confronts them as a cop until she sees the photos from Nicco’s safe. The photos implicate Nicco in a high-profile murder, which leads Mick to question everything, including the circumstances of her mother’s murder. So now Mick is running from Nicco’s security team along with one of the burglars, who just happens to be a very attractive man.

Sleepwalker sucked me in right away by not waiting even a minute to get into the action. From the beginning, the pace was quick and the danger was always present. Just like Mick, I was trying to figure out who she could trust. The answer was pretty surprising. Karen Robards kept the suspense going throughout with many twists from beginning to end.
