Hurricane Crimes tells the story of an unlikely pair who meets under incredible circumstances. Beth is forced to ride out Hurricane Sabrina at her home in Florida. While riding out the storm she happens to find a man knocked out in his car near her house. She saves him, brings him inside and finds out that there may be more to him than meets the eye.
First and foremost – this is right on the cusp of being a book that I wouldn’t normally read and review. The cover (and the script-y font of the publishing company) tell me that this is going to be a romance novel. I went into it figuring that it wasn’t going to be for me. But I was surprised at the amount of tension that Fey was able to build in just over an hour. There were at least three of four times that you thought something was going to happen and ether the other did or the suspected bad-guy would talk himself out of.
I may have unfairly judged this book by its cover – but at its heart, it is a romance novel with some thriller aspects and a little mystery. (Spoilers ahead) Strangers meet, they shouldn’t get along, but they do. They fall head over heels for each other due to the dire circumstance that they’re in and.. they do it. Sure, there is an over-arching story of a murder and a cover-up, but the heart of this novel is romance. There weren’t any super dirty or blushingly bad parts to this (I’m not a romance reader, so I don’t know what’s in those books).
Overall, not for me, but if you enjoy quick hitting short story with some enjoyable suspense parts (and you enjoy Romance novels) then Hurricane Crimes if for you.

Would you risk your life during a hurricane to safe another? That's what Beth does when she witnesses a car crash in front of her house. Beth assists the injured driver out of the car and into her house. Only, once inside and before the power goes out, Beth sees a news piece about an murderer on the run from police...and of course the photo is of her injured guy! This is a fast moving novella that includes bad cops, murder and the devastating aftermath of a hurricane...also a bit of romance. A little bit unbelievable for the romance aspect, due to the short time but still a good story.
