About the Author
A graduate of the Police Academy, Katie received her ice-rescue certification and can attest that the reservoirs in the Colorado mountains really are that cold. A fan of anything that makes her feel like a bad-ass, she has trained in Krav Maga, boxing and gymnastics, has lived in an off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains, rides horses, shoots guns, cross-country skis and travels to warm places to scuba dive.

George is a Search and Rescue member, but also a social recluse. He rarely speaks, just grunts, nods, shakes his head or uses facial expressions. He lost his mom when he was a baby and his dad when he was 17. He’s been living alone since. He knows the mountains better than anyone in the area.
Ellie shows up in the small town, needing a guide to her grandpa’s cabin. Very reluctantly, George agrees to take her. He is very impressed with Ellie during their trip, and starts speaking to her a little at a time. He’s shy, sweet, protective, caring, encouraging and most definitely awkward!
I loved seeing Lou and Callum again. I would have liked to seen more from Ian and Rory. Each time I read a book in the series I think “oh, this one is my favorite!” until I read the next one! Once I started this one, I couldn’t put it down and stayed up way too late finishing it. The suspense keep you on the edge of your seat.
While George and Ellie get their HEA, it ends on a cliffhanger. When I got to the end, my mouth dropped open and I shouted NOOOOOOOOOOO!
This is the third book. It is a great mix of suspense and romance. It contains a continuing story line, so they are best read in order. Buy them all, you won’t be disappointed!
Note for my clean readers--there is a sex scene.
Okay, Ellie and George. Ellie is Baxter's estranged daughter. For those who haven't read the first two books, Baxter was a war buddy of Willard Gray, the headless guy from book 1 (Hold Your Breath). Everyone is trying to find him in the hopes he can shed some light on the murder. He however has a lot of mental issues, the least of which is his inability to trust anyone. And the truth is, what he knows is reason enough to not trust anyone! Ellie comes to Colorado in an effort to find him and get him the help he needs. She doesn't really believe that bad guys are after him.
George agrees to lead Ellie to a cabin through miles of snow covered wilderness. The great thing about George is he is as anti-social as Rory, but worse because he only communicates in grunts. It's a product of being alone for so long. He's impressed with Ellie. She keeps going without complaining even though she's blistered and tired. He finds he likes taking care of her and entertains thoughts of "keeping her". Although that might sound creepy, coming from George it's really sweet.
The Anderson brothers are following the two through the wilderness in the hopes of being led to Baxter. They are trouble with a capital T, but the scarier part is they were put on the trail by the killer from book 1. At the end, we learn his identity. I'll be honest, I was crushed! I've been secretly chanting "don't let it be ??" for a book and a half and now that I know I'm so sad! I read the teaser for book 4 and can't wait until it's available. There is a good reason given, but it's still sad that someone who seems so good could be the bad guy. I'm looking forward to seeing how the whole thing wraps up!
And I liked Ellie, too. She was smart and determined and I really like the way she and George grew together. Their relationship progressed maybe a little too fast for me, but I'll allow it. Who wouldn't fall in love with George, lbr?
The thing that fell down for me in this book was the plot. I LOVED the first half, with all the survivalist stuff. George and Ellie trekking through the snowy mountains was again total catnip for me. All that forced proximity and heightened danger - yum.
But, then, the climax of the book seemed to happen at the halfway point and the rest of the book felt like it was aimlessly spinning its wheels. Nothing that happened after that felt particularly necessary. Yes, the bad guy got away at that halfway point, but he didn't need to. Then, in the 'real' climax, he got away again. It seemed circular and was frankly a bit annoying.
I still loved Ellie and George, I just wished their plot had been stronger and more satisfying.
One thing I'm smug about is I had guessed the identity of the killer all the way back in book one. I'm interested to see how this is resolved.
