My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Great book! I enjoyed this love inspired, suspense type book. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a light read from a book that takes you along an adventure that unfolds in a who dunnit fashion or to those that appreciate contemporary heartfelt romances within the Harlequin genre.
The characters were interesting and the author Hope White did a good job depicting the SAR, medical, and crime scenes from a small town perspective. I also enjoyed the storyline with stylistic twists that built suspense at the end of each chapter, making it a real page-turner.
There was a couple times the cat and mouse games got a little drawn out and repetitive but I liked them anyway because each subplot was unique enough to still keep the book exciting.
