My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
Detective Brady St. John has decided to spend his vacation in a cabin on a lake. He needs the time to recharge and read his Bible. On his second day, however, his plans are drastically altered. He hears a woman scream, runs to the lake and sees her struggling with an armed man in a boat. She manages to topple into the water but can’t swim as her hands are bound. Brady jumps in to rescue her while the armed man escapes. He soon finds out that the man was trying to kill Emily Chastain, a financial crimes investigator. Later that night, the killer returns to finish the job. Brady helps Emily escape once more, but he fears things are only going to get worse. Emily has no idea why someone would want to kill her.
Emily’s best friend Is an investigative reporter who has disappeared. Emily and her friend are as close as sisters, and Emily is desperate to find her friend. Is one of her stories the reason for her disappearance? Emily is worried about her friend and now she is on the run with Brady trying to avoid the killer’s next attempt. Brady’s brothers help him protect Emily. They are also in law enforcement. Then, something happens that causes Emily to surrender to the killer while trying to hold on long enough for Brady to rescue her again, but she doesn’t expect what occurs next.
Sound interesting and exciting? Well, it is! This is one of those books I read in one sitting. I was turning the pages as fast as I could to see what was around the next corner. There was plenty of action to keep me stuck to my chair. I like the way the author works in faith in the lives of her characters so that it is an integral part of who they are, but it is not over the top. The suspense and tension were riveting! I can’t wait for the fourth and final book in the series that is to be released in August 2019.
