The author brings it all to the table with this romantic suspense that keeps you guessing as to what is going on for much of the book.
In the prequel book Dancing in the Dark we knew that JP Blackmon was missing. We knew he worked for some covert agency and was either dead or on the run. Turns out he is being framed for treason and trying to stay alive from those that want him dead. When he thinks that his partner is the one that betrayed him he goes to his wife hoping to get answers only to find out he’s been dead a year which doesn’t help him in clearing his name.
Abby Price was considerably younger than her husband but she did love him and their son. She has had a year to mourn him but also time to wonder what really happened to him and about all the secrets he kept from her and if she really knew him at all. When JP shows up, she finally sees it as her chance to get some answers. What she doesn’t count on is the attraction she feels for JP even though he is hiding just as many secrets as her husband did.
These two end up on a search for the truth that has them constantly in danger from the unknown person who killed his partner and framed him. During their perils these two also fight their attraction to each other.
The author manages to capture your attention right from the start and keeps it through out with plenty of on the edge of your seat moments.
