Edge of Steele by Susan Sleeman.

About the Book

With enemies surrounding her…

Ryleigh Steele gives in to mounting pressure from her siblings and cousins and leaves her job as a law enforcement officer to join the Steele Guardians. She’s just getting her feet wet when a lumber company begins receiving threats, and the owner contracts with Ryleigh for the Steele Guardians to protect their workers. But the threats quickly escalate under her watch, and a bomb is detonated at one of the sites, killing one of the workers.

Can she find the killer and save her company’s reputation and her life?

Ryleigh takes the man’s death personally and commits to finding the killer. Trouble is, the owner has hired a security manager without Ryleigh’s knowledge, and the manager isn’t about to let anyone cut him out of this investigation. Ryleigh gets ready to do battle with him, but when she meets the handsome head of security, former Navy SEAL Finn Durham, she can barely find the words to speak much less fight. She and Finn had once dated, a tumultuous month, that ended badly. Doesn’t matter. She can’t let their past or her residual feelings for him distract her in the hunt for the killer. If she’s not careful, the killer will find her first.

Danielle’s Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book.

Edge of Steele is the sixth and final book in Susan Sleeman’s Steele Guardians romantic suspense series.

This has been such a great series and this book is a wonderful conclusion. I loved the back-and-forth between the two main characters, Ryleigh and Finn. Their break-up was messy and Ryleigh’s reactions to Finn upon seeing him again, and having to work with him again, are perfect.

The mystery is a winding tale of suspense, too. I kept trying to puzzle it out with Ryleigh and Finn, and enjoyed the twists and turns the plot took. The ending has a great twist and I loved the climax!

If you’ve enjoyed this series, then don’t miss the conclusion. If you haven’t begun yet, this book can stand alone. It is also a wonderful introduction to the next series, Shadow Lake Survival. I can’t wait!
