Catch up with the crime-fighting Coltons!

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.

My Review:

The chilling undertones of the story based on the circumstances of the town are contrasted with the budding romance creating a unique and impacting mix. There are so many layers to this story that you’re always on your toes, wondering what will happen next and getting lost in this enchanting story. The passage of time is easily marked without rushing the reader or breaking the intensity of the story. I really appreciate the fact that the story takes place over weeks rather than days. That way you don’t feel like the relationship is a whirlwind based on a whim. This excitingly fast paced story definitely kept me coming back for more.

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.
