For years, Danielle Harding has suffered abuse in silence. On the same day that she and her son leave her husband, is the same day that she becomes a widow. Feeling free at last, Dani and her son set about building a new life. But when what she thought was just a stalking incident escalates into being threatened at gunpoint, Dani is fearful for her life. Evidently she has something of her husband's that someone wants. Not knowing who to trust, Dani turns to Operation Refuge. Adam Buchanan is sent to protect Dani and her son. Yet as the danger grows, so do the feelings Adam feels for Dani. Will Dani be forced to run for her life yet again or will she find the courage to stand tall and not only accept Adam's love, but also his protection?
I've read a few of Lynette Eason's books before and have found them to be very suspenseful. This one was good, but not enthralling like some of her others.
It was very suspenseful, true. I'd figured out pretty early exactly how the stalker kept finding Dani's location at each new safe house, so when that was actually revealed, I wasn't surprised. I thought that the characters were pretty well developed as a whole. Simon, Dani's son, was probably my favorite.
I didn't see that this book had quite the same element of suspense as the first in this series. And when the overall villain was revealed, I felt it had come out of nowhere. Still I did enjoy the book. It was a fast read for me.
I received this book for free from Revell Books for the purpose of reviewing. I was not required to like the book, only give my honest opinion. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of Lynette Eason, Irene Hannon, romantic suspense, Dee Henderson
Rating - 3.5 stars - This is another time that I wish that Amazon/Goodreads would offer half ratings! It's not a four star book, but it's not a 3 either. But I will rank it for Amazon/Goodreads as 3.
