Witnessing a murder plunges Nina Owens into nerve-shattering danger. Police chief Flint Colton is sure the perp is taking down witnesses, so the handsome cop orders Nina into protective custody…in his home! And while she's grateful to him, Nina just can't shake her deep distrust of police. But all that falls away when Flint's scintillating kiss awakens something deep within her.
As Thanksgiving approaches with Dead River quarantined, the search for a missing child puts Nina and the killer on a collision course. She knows Flint is haunted by a past failure to save a witness…and that he'll put himself in the line of fire before he ever lets her down.
Really enjoyed this romantic suspense. Nina has been attracted to Flint since he came to town. Problem is he is a cop and she knows they can't be trusted. When she witnesses a murder, she needs protective custody and Flint is the man for the job. Because of past issues, he is determined to keep her close and alive. The closer they are the more chemistry ignites and maybe Nina will realize how trustworthy this cop is.
I liked Flint. He was a stand up guy and had a difficult issue to overcome in his past and plenty to keep him busy in the present. Nina's issues take center-stage with being the target of a killer. Her past keeps her distant from Flint and not her sunny self but I did enjoy her character as well. The story line was good and flowed well. I do still have questions that will hopefully be answered in a later book!
It was a 3/5 for me. I enjoyed the story but the ending seemed a bit abrupt.
