The Negotiator by HelenKay Dimon


Lauren Gallagher’s life changed almost three years ago. After her husband disappeared at sea, she was left with a failing pleasure boat company and more than a few secrets. Now, after years spent rebuilding the business and paying off the pile of debts, she finally feels in control. But when she finds her husband, actually dead, on the floor, she becomes the leading suspect in his murder investigation.

Garrett McGrath wants Lauren in his bed, not his heart. He doesn’t do emotions, but every time he sees her, holding himself back gets harder and harder. When Lauren comes under suspicion for killing her previously presumed-dead husband, he knows he has to help her, any way he can.

But as the danger becomes more intense and Garret and Lauren grow closer than either planned, they’re in danger of losing everything… including their hearts.

3.5 stars were negotiated!

This is part of a series, and I wonder if I understood less of the undercurrents because I haven't read the earlier stories.

I enjoy Ms. Dimon's books, as they often have a clever twist, which fits well in the story and adds a little bit of tension. That is true here too, and as someone who has been in a boathouse or two, it worked really well. I just was a bit nonplussed by the dialogue near the end, where discussion of negotiation arose.

It is a good plot, with a rather delicious lead in Garrett, and an unexpected leading lady in Lauren.



HelenKay Dimon spent the years before becoming a romance author as a divorce attorney—not the usual career transition. Now she writes full-time and she’s much happier. The author of more than thirty novels, novellas, and short stories that have twice been named Red-Hot Reads and excerpted in Cosmopolitan, she’s on the board of directors of the Romance Writers of America and teaches fiction writing at UC San Diego and MiraCosta College.
