My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Hotshot is book # 11 in the Buchanan-Renard series but despair not, each of the books in the series can be read as a stand-alone.
I have no idea why these books have been included in the series, except for the first 6 or 7, Buchanan family never comes into play in any of them I think. The only common thread is the presence of an FBI officer.
Well, if you have been reading Julie Garwood books over the years, obviously, you know that they are good enough for some breezy reading. The mystery is not too intense, the romance and sex are really good and both factors hold good in this one too with an additional drama of sabotage involved.
I have read all the books in the series and love them for exactly what it offers, some mindless fun and sexy heroes😉
So now officially I can say I have read all the books published by Julie Garwood and if you are new to the scene, please begin with her historical romances. The humor that she could create in her stories is simply mind-blowing!
#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood returns with a novel of family drama, suspense, and—of course—romance.
Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have inherited Bishop’s Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with a condition: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit—only then will they own it.
A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic. Out of work and in a bad place personally, a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful.
There are countless challenges and too many people who want to stop the sisters from succeeding. Among them are Peyton’s contentious cousins, who are outraged that they didn’t inherit the resort, as well as a powerful group of land developers who have been eyeing the coveted beachfront property.
It’s soon apparent to Peyton that their efforts are being sabotaged, but she refuses to let the threats scare her—until she’s nearly killed. She calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. He saved her life once; he can do it again.

I used to love Julie Garwood’s historical romances. I didn’t know she had a mystery/romantic suspense series. I’ll have to put book 1 on my list!
Oh yeah, historical romances by Julie garwood are a league of their own I think. In fact, I fell in love with the genre after reading those books. The contemporaries up until 4 or 5 are good but after that they kind of lose steam and more or less begin to sound similar, thou I love them for all that macho heroism😉
