Formula for Danger, by Camy Tang

Camy Tang's latest release, Formula for Danger, takes place in the Napa Valley wine country of California. The mystery suspense novel focuses on Rachel Grant, dermatologist, and her formula for a breakthrough scar-reduction cream. Rachel is the sister of Naomi Grant, protagonist of the previous book, Deadly Intent.

Someone is trying to kill Rachel and steal her formula. Every chapter has non-stop action and keeps you guessing who the culprit is. At the same time, Rachel falls in love with a man who seems to push her away emotionally, but shows up when she needs him most.

An intriguing subplot revolves around Rachel's relationship to her father and her need to please him. Rachel's deceased mother was Japanese, and her father is Caucasian, yet some of his attitudes are typically associated with Asian males. I think one of the strong points of Camy's fiction in that she writes from an Asian American perspective, yet doesn't make it obvious.

The official release month of the book is September, but I was able to obtain an advance copy. It's a quick read that can be enjoyed any time of the year and would make a great gift for the Christian suspense or Camy Tang fan.
