My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Never a dull moment in the lives of the Edgars siblings. Luke Edgar doesn’t have what you’d think would be a dangerous job as he works for the Treasury Department. But when he’s redirected to help out a fellow agent he has a bit a of a history with from their training days he realizes they have walked into a very dangerous situation.
Abigail Whitson grew up an orphan. She was always taller than the other girls and had a head for numbers and a photographic memory. She found an ally in the orphanage named Brianna and they have stayed close friends. When Abby gets a call from Brianna needing her advise on something she found in the books at the company she works for Abby waste no time in going to meet her friend. But what she finds when she gets there is her place totally trashed and lots of blood but no Brianna.
As the story progresses we find out along with Luke and Abby that what Brianna uncovered was far worse than embezzlement or money laundering and they know it’s a race to try and find her before she’s dead if she isn’t already.
Luke and Abby had a strained relationship since training. She thought Luke didn’t think she could handle field work and that he was the reason she was assigned desk work. These two bickering banter back and forth before they finally gave in and admitted their true feelings was entertaining.
Once it starts becoming clear what Brianna had gotten herself mixed up in Luke waste no time in calling old family friend Frank Costello and eventually his brothers to help them rescue and take down the organization that has her. I loved that two of the wives even got to be part of the mission.
As always it was a joy to read this latest book from Suzanne that’s always filled with a great romance, lots of action and danger and siblings that always have each other’s back.
