yacht? like Marina I have to admit I’m not entirely sure which is which is a way to gently test herself and build her confidence again The last thing she expects is to be accused of theft and bribery and then roped in to help the real thief be caughtDean doesn’t take too kindly to being blackmailed and I can understand his anger at what has happened to him and his suspicion of Marina Some of his actions are a little heavy handed but he does listen to Marina and figure out pretty uickly that she’s not involved and is nothing but a scapegoat for the real culprit Marina does have some information that she’s able to offer up and when it looks as though she is being blackmailed just as much as Dean is she vows to do all that she can to ensure that the guilty party is caught The two of them end up spending a lot of time with each other as Dean takes Marina to his yacht and then also begins to teach her how to swim when he realises what her fear stems from There’s an attraction that simmers between them and I liked the way their relationship developed as they spent time with each otherI also really liked both character’s backgrounds not something that you read about a lot I’ve read another book many a year ago now that focused on the characters of an orchestra but probably nothing since and I found Marina’s background uite interesting She’s very open about the sacrifices her family made for her and the possible resentment this has inspired from her siblings who didn’t get uite the same attention lavished on them She feels so compelled to be the best that she can be to justify that time effort and money spent on her in her youth She has hit a lot of heights in her career but there’s been a scandal or two and lots of pressure as well most of it probably self inflicted I found Dean’s background fun as well it was nice to learn a few things about sailing and yachts It’s hard not to know the money that can be in them – the gossip pages are full of this celebrity and that celebrity enjoying holidays on their million dollar yachts but you tend not to think of the design that goes into crafting something like that just the luxurious end product Dean was a self made man who had known personal loss and pain and also sacrifice and hard work I uite admired his determination to catch the hacker and blackmailer and not accept the situation passively Although he does pay the bribe he does it knowing that it won’t accomplish anything other than perhaps buy him time to further close in on the elusive hacker and I even found the story behind the hacking uite interesting too and not too implausibleA Dangerous Arrangement is a fast paced and highly enjoyable story that blends the best of romance and suspense into one cohesive story I never have any hesitation in picking up one of Lee Christine’s books and recommend them all
