"Gwenan Haines gave this story so many layers which kept me guessing and wondering every step of the way. Every time she managed to surprise me when another piece of the mystery was revealed.

The buildup is very good and that makes Collateral Damage a thrilling read. It has everything a good crime story needs." -Anniek Snowroses
"Compelling...the action in this story is endless." -Romance Authors That Rock
