Targeted for Murder was truly action packed from the very first page! The author dropped the reader right into the danger at the beginning and kept the main characters running for their lives time and again throughout the book.
Hadley faced challenges that she never imagined would be part of her life. I liked that although she had some self-defense skills, she really did not understand how to survive on her own, or outwit the men who were trying to kill her. She also had some understandable trust issues.
Cooper was an interesting character. He definitely knew how to survive in the wild, had excellent fighting skills, and experience from military service. However, the guilt he carried caused him no small amount of trouble as he tried to look forward and anticipate what needed to be done to help Hadley survive.
This was an exciting story and a great kick off to a new series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
