What a fabulous suspense story this is! It kept me guessing till the end and I love it when an author can do that. The main characters are very likeable and believable, and their attraction throughout the book is wonderfully done.
Bree is a strong woman, a doctor, who is very alone in the world. She has lost so many people that she loves. I was able to really feel for Bree. Having lost family and friends, she is very scared to trust her heart to another. This is something she struggles with throughout the book.
David knows all about pain and loss. This widowed father is dealing with guilt and grief. The feeling that he should have been able to rescue people close to him is part of the reason that he volunteers as a leader with a search and rescue group.
David and Bree have to figure out who is after them and what they want. Watching these people fall in love while trying to stay alive was quite a ride! I am so excited to read future books in this series! (5 stars)
My thanks to the author for the complimentary copy of this book that I received in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
