“You’ll pay for this. I’ll get you both.”
Computer expert Lexi Wynn is frightened. Someone is after her, but she doesn’t know why. Is it because of her past or because she was thrust into a deadly bank robbery and might identify the ones responsible? Escaping a failed kidnapping attempt and not sure who to trust, she hopes her specialized skills with computers might flush out the name of the killer. When a tall, dark, and handsome stranger rams into her truck with the hearse he’s driving and puts his life in danger to save hers, can she ignore the attraction she feels for him to concentrate on the killers? Or is God the only one who can save her now?
Drew Sheffield is irritated when a cute lady stops abruptly in front of him and he plows into the back of her pickup. After their initial confrontation, flashbacks of honeysuckle and sassy green eyes linger in his thoughts. When Lexi is threatened, he steps in to help the feisty young woman, in spite of agonizing over a past relationship.
Can Lexi and Drew forget the tragedies of the past and embrace the feelings between them or will ghostly memories snub out the promise of a future together?
About the Author
Joanie has a strong passion for reading, and her love for books with nail-biting suspense, inspires her to write contemporary suspense books. Thankful that God has given her the ability to write from her home in the country, she strives to use that opportunity to honor Him in all of her writing. Joanie and her husband, Ben, live in a country home near Madison, Georgia, right in the middle of a pasture full of beef cows. There they raised and homeschooled their three children. She enjoys cooking, taking long walks, painting oil portraits, and caring for their home in the country.
This book is the first in a series so you will not be missing out on anything. It starts out with a bit from Lexi's past and at first that was kinda confusing how it tied into the rest of the story but it developed later and made more sense. Lexi and her mom happpened to be somewhere at a not so good time and her mom chose to be brave and stop an attempted robbery but her choice had consequences. Drew is working at the local funeral home and they kinda had a bump in their meeting which caused some rocky feelings. Past things in Lexi's life are having something to do with her being chased. There wasn't alot of violence which was good but alot of suspense. Personally it took me a bit to get into the story but I encourage you to stay with it and it does get more interesting as it goes along and is a good book.
I received this book for free. No compensation was received and all opinions are my own
