Review – ‘Mr. Serious’ by Danica Winters


Blurb 

Waylon Fitzgerald had a life of adventure all planned out--one that did not include returning to his family's ranch to bring his missing ex-wife into custody for murder. With so much bad blood between them, the sexy military police officer understands why his ex's sister, Christina Bell, hates him. And yet he and Christina spark a sizzling attraction.

What changes everything for Waylon is Winnie, Christina's adorable ward...and the startling revelation that he's her father. When she goes missing--her mother a killer at large--Waylon's world is upended. Will he redeploy to follow his passions around the world...or stay where his heart has found an unexpected Christmas present?
 
Review 

In the second book in the Mystery Christmas series, Waylon Fitzgerald comes home to Montana to search for missing ex-wife, Alli. As a military policeman at Fort Bragg, he knows a thing or two about investigations but the first thing he does when he arrives at his family’s ranch is anger Christina Bell, Alli’s sister and a woman’s he’s never met.
Christina is hurt, angry, and confused over her sister’s actions. Alli killed two people in the previous book and now she’s on the run from the police. Before Alli left, she entrusted Winnie, her adorable two-year-old daughter, to Christina. When she and Waylon team up to look for Alli, Christina knows she needs to tell him the truth that Winnie is Waylon’s daughter. The entire Fitzgerald family knows it, but the sexy MP has no idea. As the clues lead to answers they didn’t expect, the most important person in Christina’s world—and Waylon’s—goes missing in the wilds of a snowy Montana ranch.
I really liked Waylon. He’s protective, goal-oriented, and he knows what he wants. I liked Christina for the most part, but her protectiveness toward her lying, murderous sister annoyed me a little. Though tension and false assumptions threatened to wedge between Christina and Waylon, they have great chemistry and the love that built between them was quick but believable.
I didn’t expect the twist at the end, and I absolutely loved it, but I don’t understand how Alli and Lisa knew each other. I wish there would’ve been a scene with Waylon telling Winnie he’s her dad. It would’ve been totally sweet and heartwarming.
Anyway, I liked this story a lot and I’d love to read the third book in the series. Colter is introduced, and he definitely seems like a sexy man I would like to get to know better.
5 Stars
