Goodreads Summary:

A story about how fate will carry us where we need to go whether we are willing passengers or not.

After being jilted not once, but twice by the only woman he’s ever truly loved, Brian McAlister has all but given up on relationships. Then, on special assignment for the DA's office, he steps into the middle of a politically sensitive murder case where he crosses paths with a beautiful ex-socialite-turned-social-worker, Holly Cavanaugh Winter. 

Widowed, practically penniless, and reduced to shopping at Walmart, Holly is dreading the approaching holiday season. However, her angst isn't due to her husband's untimely death the previous December 25th, but to a secret that could reveal itself unless she can find a way to avoid the coming Christmas. To make matters worse, she unwittingly stumbles into the throes of Brian’s case and the manhunt for a killer who now has his sights set on her.

His case unraveling, Brian finds himself tasked with keeping Holly and her two daughters safe while bringing an assassin and the powerful man who hired him to justice.



Sneak Peek:

"With anger also came a sense of power __albeit flase, but a semblance all the same. With power cam econtrol. Not the kind of control that caused a person to act rationally nut the kind of wrath that started wars, fed prejudice, and breathed life into grudges held for reasons the bearer had long forgotten." (e-reader location 976)







Initial Thoughts

I agreed to read this book because I read the first in the series. It is exactly what I expected... perfect for those who enjoy Hallmark movies with a little mystery thrown in.
