Cut and Run, A Dark Romantic Suspense You Can't Miss (Review)

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.

Mary Burton proves herself to be an author worth taking note of in her masterful suspense, Cut and Run. Medical examiner Faith McIntyre's world is shaken when she discovers the secrets her parents kept regarding her adoption lead to a twin sister who has just landed in the hospital as the victim of a hit and run. Macy and Faith's connection to another victim lead Texas Ranger Mitchell Hayden deeper into a dark world of kidnapped women and hush-hush adoptions.

The story immediately draws readers into the mystery as a potential lead is found tortured and dead. Mitchell Hayden takes the reins and quickly and brings Faith into the investigation. Even though Faith has possible personal ties to the case she still makes it clear that once she's invested she's seeing it through to the end. I loved both Mitchell and Faith because they're driven and focused on the case, despite personal trauma. I thought it very interesting that they had a physical arrangement that didn't involve any labels and kept it professional around others. It was a positive change of pace from romantic suspense plagued with instant attraction story lines. There wasn't any angsty drama between the two struggling to figure out their relationship, so the plot was absolutely driven by suspense.

Cut and Run is a dark romantic suspense you just can't miss! Mary Burton guides readers through a plot that leads to a satisfying end that has just the right amount of closure and still allows the characters' futures to be left up to conjecture. It's perfect for fans of Rita Herron or Cynthia Eden! If any of her stories are like Cut and Run, I'm definitely looking forward to reading more!
