About the Book:
She married her enemy…
When investigative journalist Reagan McAdams discovers her new husband is part of an international crime family, she flees Paris with their newborn and returns to her childhood home in New Hampshire, where she’ll gather her inheritance before she disappears forever. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect her son from his criminal father.
He never quit loving her.
Detective Brady Thomas discovers Rae is back and in trouble, and he plans to protect her and her son, whether she wants his help or not.
The death toll rises.
But when Rae's husband starts killing people to smoke her out, she has to decide what—and who—she’ll have to sacrifice to save her son.
If I had to pick just one genre to read, mystery/suspense thrillers would be my choice and this book would be on my "must-have" list for my bookshelf. The description of the book intrigued me, and as I started reading it I wondered how in the world Rae could a) survive, b) bring down an international crime ring, and c) be happily reunited with Brady, her high school sweetheart especially since she was married (I'll just say a great plot twist is involved). Patchen did an exceptional job laying this story out and making all of the details work together with a phenomenal end result! With each step that Julien and his cronies got to finding Rae, I found the hairs on my neck sticking up and my eyes growing wider with angst for her! Truly felt the fear and hopelessness in Rae's situation. But, as I said, Patchen's ability to create a believable story with a satisfying end deserves applause! Loved it and can't wait to read the other stories in the series!
