Christmas Undercover (Echo Mountain)

Title:  Christmas Undercover (Echo Mountain)
Author:  Hope White

My rating is 5 stars.
Will Rankin is a volunteer with the local search and rescue team.  He is out hiking one morning, trying to have quiet time with the Lord when he discovers an unconscious woman.  Upon rousing her, she socks him in the nose, giving him two black eyes and a bloody nose!  He realizes at once that she is scared and doesn’t trust him.  She keeps him at a distance even as he tries his best to help her with her injuries.  Soon he hears her story and understands why she fears for her life.  He makes a connection with her and wonders if she feels the same.  It happened so quickly he can’t understand his strong feelings for her.
Sara Vaughn is an undercover FBI agent.  She is working on a case that her boss told her to forget about, giving her a leave of absence.  Since she is on her own time, she decides to continue investigating the case on her own because she just knows she is right; all she needs is proof.  She gets her proof, but it might cost her big time.  In fact, it might cost this agent her very life!  She wants to trust Will as he makes her feel safe and protected, but is he one of the bad guys out to get her?  He is unbelievably good natured toward her when she is anything but nice.  She will have to make a choice to trust him or not.  Will she do so before the men responsible for her fall find them?
I really enjoyed the dynamics between these two characters.  Will has such a loving, generous and compassionate nature and is willing to show it.  Sara is tenacious, but vulnerable.  In the face of Will’s faith, Sara must confront her fears from the past.  He lives his faith daily and she sees this is what makes him the man he is.  This book is a great way to spend an afternoon inside in the comfort of the cool air-conditioning!

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
