Katherine Bonner with the golden eyes and a golden, enchanted life is well on her way to becoming a horse whisperer. Tall, athletic, she loves to ride, and she can usually exact good behavior from most wild steed, except from Pierce who bucks her at every crack of the whip.
Pierce is top honcho in charge of the fifteen hundred acre ranch, Bonner-Willow. Although he owns a Master’s in business administration, he loves to be around horses. He considers himself more of a cowboy than a CEO.
When Kat becomes the bearer of unexpected news about her past from ex-convict, ex-lawyer Victor Horn, she wonders how she will ever find her roots and manage to put the pieces of her life back together again. She turns to Pierce, the dark hair and blue eyed hunk whom Kat believes, thinks he is God's gift to women.
Pierce reluctantly agrees to help, partly for reasons of his own. He worries about his lawyerly father being involved with Victor's murder. As Pierce and Kat travel to Chicago together, they walk right into a criminal investigation headed by two bumbling detectives. Kat makes a date with a potential serial killer, and Pierce, whose affection for Kat is slowly changing to one of deeper commitment, worries about her safety. Meanwhile, Kat bumps into a doppelganger she believes is stalking her, only to discover that no one else ever sees her.
Mirror Deep uncovers many twists and turns designed to keep the reader guessing until the end. Through all the action, Pierce remains by Kat's side. Will he be able to hide from Kat his mounting desire? Will Kat find who this look alike is and why she is trying to warn her? Does Kat follow a stranger to Paris, France simply to put miles between her and Pierce or to avoid the threat of a potential killer?

My Review / Thoughts:
This is my first official "Adult" review. It's not my first "Adult" novel to read but the first one I read and was hyper aware of what was happening because I had to write about it!
I really enjoyed most of this book. It took place on a ranch and I thought the author did a great job putting me "in" the book. The descriptions of the ranch and the goings on there were great. I am always excited when a book puts a beautiful picture in my head.
The love story is a little strange and at times a little awkward and uncomfortable, but I am happy at the way it turns out. I guess not all love stories can be perfect..right?
Kat's life was thrown upside down when she found out she was adopted, and as the story behind her adoption plays out it is exciting.
The book kept me on my toes. Just when I thought I had it all figured out something else happens to change my mind. I really like it when a book does that for me. For some people it might be predictable, but it wasn't for me. Not all of it anyway.
If you enjoy romance and mystery this definitely fulfills both of those.
I do have to say that there was too much language in this book for me to LOVE this book.
