Virginia Smith's Love Inspired Suspense books. They are both short, easy reads. But, don't start reading unless you have time to finish because you might get hopelessly hooked and not be able to put it down.
First, A Deadly Game is set in Lexington, Kentucky, a great area to visit with its thoroughbred farms, historical sites, and natural beauty. It's also a great place for a treasure hunt. The heroine, Susanna Trent, is an executive assistant raising her sister's three-year-old daughter. Her boss is murdered in his own office. He must have known he was in danger because he sent Susanna an envelope containing peculiar tokens and mysterious clues. The killer wants these items so that he can collect the prize money for finding all the tokens. He wants it so bad that he kidnaps Susanna's niece. Jack Townsend, son of a wealthy businessman, becomes involved in the hunt for answers---the little girl and the killer. He was with Susanna when she found the body, and he just could not stay out of it from then on. He also provides romantic interest. It's a great story, filled with intrigue, suspense, and romance.
