Review:​ Cut and Run by Mary Burton

Synopsis:  Twin sisters separated by the past are reunited by unspeakable crimes in New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton’s throat-clutching novel of suspense…

Trauma victims are not new to medical examiner Faith McIntyre, but this one is different. The unconscious woman clinging to life after a hit and run is FBI agent Macy Crow. What the woman from Quantico was doing in a dark alley after midnight is just one mystery. The other is more unsettling: Macy is Faith’s mirror image—the twin sister she never knew she had.

Faith knew that she was adopted, but now she’s finding that her childhood concealed other secrets. Following the trail of clues Macy left behind, Faith and Texas Ranger Mitchell Hayden make a shocking discovery on an isolated country ranch—a burial ground for three women who disappeared thirty years before.

They weren’t the only victims in a killer’s twisted plot. And they won’t be the last.

As the missing pieces of Faith’s and Macy’s dark lives snap into place, Faith is becoming more terrified by what she sees—and by what she must do to save her sister and herself from the past.

Review: If you want to read a good romantic suspense book, I would recommend that you read this one.

The Protagonists of this story are Faith McIntyre and Mitchell Hayden.  First, we meet Texas Ranger Mitchell Hayden who finds himself in a scene of crime. The victim is Jack Crow, and it is after contacting his daughter Macy Crow, Faith receives word that Macy has been hit-and-run. While Macy is barely clinging on to her life, Faith and Mitchell are tasked to find out some things: Who hit Macy? What was she doing in Austin after midnight? Why does she look like a mirror image of Faith?

Tracing the paths Macy took, a gruesome crime is discovered: three unmarked graves are found on an abandoned ranch containing the remains of women missing for thirty years. Soon, new bodies start piling up beside old ones leaving questions behind. What secret is someone trying to cover up? And how far will they go?

There is already a relationship between Faith and Mitchell-a physical one at the beginning of the book. The sex scenes are written well, but my grievance lies with the romance. There was no build up. One moment, they are solely in a physical relationship, and in the next,they are in love .

I love the author’s writing, especially the way she wrote the plot of the story. It will keep you on the edge of your seat – guessing what comes next.

Overall, I think this an impressive Mystery/thriller book with light romance. If you like reading about strong characters, never-ending plot-twists, dark thriller with a dash of romance, I would recommend this book to you.

Thanks to NetGalley, Montlake Romance for providing me with an eARC.

Verdict: Cut and Run gets 4 out of 5 stars from me.
