Skyla Overland is proud to work for Overland Insurance, the company founded by her grandfather. She enjoys sharing an apartment with her best friend, Pauline, and is in love with Edmond. Besides one nerve-wracking insurance fraud case in the past, her sheltered life is uneventful and just the way she likes it.
Until one day, everything changes…
Skyla and Troy, the manager at Overland Insurance, are the last ones to leave the office. In the empty parking lot, Troy takes her in his arms. Why would he ruin their easy-going friendship by kissing her, especially since he knows she’s dating Edmond?
Left alone, Skyla hurries to her car, puts on her seatbelt, and glances in her rearview mirror.
The face of a stranger grins at her from the backseat. “How nice to see you again,” he hisses close to her ear.
Regaining consciousness, Skyla finds herself on the backseat of her own car, with her hands tied behind her back.
Is she getting kidnapped? Who is he? And where is he taking her?
Overland is my first read from Ramcy Diek, and it won’t be my last.
Romantic suspense is my favorite romance genre. I really enjoy the suspenseful nature of these novels. Ramcy Diek’s writing is awesome. I was on the edge of my seat through the whole novel.
The atmosphere of this story is dark. As a reader, you feel pretty helpless as you watch Skyla in the predicament she’s in. The villain is a sick man, and someone that you really learn to hate, immediately. A quick note of a trigger warning: the abuse in this story, while not over done, is difficult to read. I found myself struggling just because I felt terrible for the characters.
On the flip side, the story is balanced with some light and hope, strength and courage. It is a compelling novel, that I didn’t want to set down.
Overall, I would recommend giving this one a read with the possibly triggering themes kept in mind.

A long time ago, I fell in love with the United States while traveling around in an Oldsmobile station-wagon with my husband. We are both born and raised in the Netherlands.
Together, we eventually found our way to the Pacific Northwest, built up a business, and raised our two boys into amazing young adults with their own careers. During this time, I also made a slow transition from reader to writer of many different stories.
My multiple award winning debut novel “Storm at Keizer Manor” sets the bar high for my second novel, Eagles in Flight.
Qll my books are stand alone novels in different genres. You might be in for a surprise, or a disappointment.
