Traces by Denise Weimer Review & Giveaway!

Traces JustRead Blog Tour 
Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Traces by Denise Weimer, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Traces by Denise Weimer
Title: Traces

Author: Denise Weimer

Publisher: BLING! Romance

Release Date: March 5, 2020

Genre: Inspirational Romantic Suspense

When a failed romance and a $500,000 prize lure Kate Carson into participating in the reality TV show, Traces, the least she expects is to pick her partner. After all, she’s the PR spokeswoman of the company that derived a thirteen-lens, rotating camera from military use and installed it atop Atlanta’s tallest skyscraper. But she never would have chosen to evade techno hunters for twenty days with “G.I. Joe.”

Stoic, ex-military Alex Mitchell is the sort of man she always vowed to avoid, while the shadows of Alex’s past cause him to spurn emotional involvement. When Kate’s insider knowledge makes her a target of someone more threatening than game show hunters, Alex offers her only hope to reveal the dark plans of proponents of The Eye.

My Thoughts:

4 Stars!
An excellent romantic suspense novel from a new-to-me-author! 
I was sucked into this story from page one and couldn't stop reading! 
Kate and Alex were both great characters, they were not without flaws and things in their lives that they needed to face and work through, but that only made them more relatable. They were both very likeable and I was rooting for them from the get-go! 
The unique premise of this book is what first caught my attention, and it totally lived up to my expectations! 
This book has the perfect balance of suspense and romance, and kept me glued to the page throughout! 
The author clearly knows Atlanta well and I found it to be a fascinating armchair vacation! My favorite type of storytelling is when the author gives just enough description of the setting and surroundings that I can totally picture it, but not so much that it bogs down the story with pages of unnecessary details, and I'm thrilled to say that Denise Weimer mastered this perfectly, well done! 
I so enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of this author's work in the future! 
I highly recommend Traces, especially for fans of Lynette Eason, Dani Pettrey, Dana Mentink, and Susan May Warren.

I received an ebook copy of this book from the publisher which did not influence my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.


  1. I enjoy romantic suspense so this looks like one I'll pick up.
