Outhouses and Outposts Oh My!
on January 13, 2018
Another great addition to this series. My favorite one so far. This book features Beau (who is a minor player in the previous books) and Sabrina (who we briefly meet in The Lucky Heart.) She is in danger from the Russian Mob back in Seattle. With no where else to turn to, she goes to her best friend, Felicity (who is featured in The Lucky Heart) in Montana. Beau volunteers to take her up into the mountains to hide out. Totally out of her element in nature, she leans on Beau for a lot, and eventually they form a bond. But his life is in Montana and her's is in Seattle, so they are enjoying each other as much as they can before it is deemed safe enough for her to return home and they are forced to part ways.
The characters are well developed. Unlike many romances, this Hero doesn't have any issues or demons he's dealing with. He does work too hard and puts everyone else before himself, but that is the only thing that the Heroine can really fault him for. The Heroine has a few personal battles she's fighting. Besides her current safety worries, she has some emotional scars from her youth that needs to heal. As well as her self loathing for the things she's done for her job (as a investigative reporter.) This book pretty much just features the h/H as they are hiding out in a seclusive cabin in the woods, but we do get some glimpses of old familiar faces and a few new ones.
The timeline for this book overlaps book three, as it begins before book three ends. Though it can be read as a stand alone without much confusion. There is some mild violence. Nothing too graphic. There is some sexual content and some mild language. It alternates between POV's. The story is well written with a few emotional scenes, a few humorous ones as well.
