Taylor has been profiling some intense cases and is dealing the with fear of a stalker. She has a suspect in mind, one of her former students. When her brother asks her to come home, she doesn't realize that she's only bringing her troubles with her.
Nick is searching for his brother. He doesn't believe Taylor's claim that he's her stalker, and he's determined to prove her wrong. He's still dealing with the death of his wife, but he's drawn to Taylor. He wants to work with her to find his brother, but Taylor isn't so sure.
I really liked this book. The one qualm I have with it involves the villain plot. I liked how the author spread the suspicion around until I saw how it turned out. Regardless, the end was suspenseful, and I liked the characters, especially Nick.
You'll meet Ben and Livy in this book. Ben is a main character in book 2, and Livy is the heroine of book 3. I plan on watching these, and I'm pretty sure they can be read out of order.
Taylor has a stalker, she thinks it's Scott Sinclair, but his brother Nick, swears there is no way his brother could do the many evil things he is accused of.
Taylor is also having nightmares and thinks finding her father who deserted the family will cause an end to them.
All this combined calls for a great book!
Nick is a PROFESSOR with a desire for peace: home, family, kids. (Okay, maybe not so much peace with the kids ...) He excels in research and writing. Focused on the Lord's work, he also has a passion for inner-city children and hopes someday to open a camp for them. He doesn't understand Taylor's penchant for police work.
Taylor has a cop's heart. Not like the CRUSADER flinging herself in harm's way—that would be her best friend, Livy. Taylor has a longing to solve crimes and unravel puzzles. With her, it's all about the information, uncovering key data and crafting psychologically reasonable conclusions.
Patricia Bradford pens an exciting story, one with the atmosphere and feel of an all-time favorite author, Phyllis A. Whitney.
The multiple twists of the mystery delighted. While I did figure out the answers before the halfway mark, the ending entirely satisfied.
The intensity of the suspense gripped. More than once, my chin dropped. And at one point, I called out loud, "Oh no you did not." My children, thankfully are used to such outbursts. :)
The passion found depths well beyond her beautiful eyes and his broad shoulders. I love a romance where the attractions stem from the characters hopes, fears, and dreams. From the essences of the characters instead of just their outer appearance.
This story soars toward those at the top of my list! I highly recommend it for lovers of mystery, intrigue, and a satisfying romance.
