Set in Southern Oregon, Seattle, Washington DC, and Eastern Oregon, near Lake Paulina, Slanted is a gritty, high-action, romantic suspense adventure about commitment, sacrifice, love and faith.
Loved this latest work by H.L. Wegley. That the media and IT search engines could slant public opinion is only too true. One only has to look at the last four years of politics in our country to know that. I only hope the story isn’t a prophecy of our country’s future. Great yarn with a great romance and three cool characters.
I love, love, love this author. Each story I have read by this author begin with action, and is very hard to find a stopping place. Can’t seem to put it down until I get to the end, then I wish it was longer.
