Back Cover Blurb:
Witnessing a murder plunges Nina Owens into nerve-shattering danger. Police chief Flint Colton is sure the perp is taking down witnesses, so the handsome cop orders Nina into protective custody…in his home! And while she's grateful to him, Nina just can't shake her deep distrust of police. But all that falls away when Flint's scintillating kiss awakens something deep within her.
As Thanksgiving approaches with Dead River quarantined, the search for a missing child puts Nina and the killer on a collision course. She knows Flint is haunted by a past failure to save a witness…and that he'll put himself in the line of fire before he ever lets her down.
I found that learning about the characters’ pasts in such detail made the story seem more intimate and personal. Seeing both characters’ POV in the story not only developed the characters well and provided insight into the story at large but also made for some rather comical moments. Not only that, but the main characters were such inviting individuals that I found myself really wanting to know them and be a part of their story.
As a whole this was an intricately written and very well put together novel. It’s an easy, quick read that both kept me on my toes and gave a healthy dose of romance.
