FBI special agent, David Latham, witnesses Lauren DiStefano and her young nephew almost get ran over on purpose. The person she believes is behind the wheel: her dead brother! Now David has been assigned to protect Lauren, believing her dead brother was mixed up with the mob and had questionable investments. David not only looks after her, but soon becomes her protector and helps her out of several close calls. Her five year old nephew, now her responsibility, soon falls hard for David as well. But there are lot of strange goings on and they need to find out exactly who's trying to kill Lauren and what "the bird" is.
As far as the mystery goes, I was disappointed at the ending. We learned the the truth about who and how, but we never did understand why. I can't go into too much detail or I'd give it away, but I think the author left a lot of questions like why he turned ugly, why did he try to hurt these people? I just didn't feel there was closure to this story.
Well...I've now read four LI Suspense, and I've been disappointed in the romance pretty much every time (one of them was pretty good). I'm wondering if romance takes a back seat in all the books. We really didn't see much, except at the end when they declared their love (I'm not giving anything away - that happens in EVERY LI book!).
In conclusion, the suspense kept me wanting to read the book. The dialogue was pretty good. It kept me interested up to the end. But I felt let down that the author didn't help me understand why two men with families would do such horrible things...
