DEA agent Tyler Griffin must stop a drug cartel that's using an Idaho Christmas tree farm to smuggle narcotics across the Canadian border. But to do his job, Tyler needs the cooperation of farm owner and widowed mother Heather Larson-Randall—whose informant brother died on Tyler's watch. Tyler knows a crucial piece of evidence is hidden somewhere on the property. But getting the protective mother to trust him is the hardest part of his mission. As threats against Heather mount, he vows to keep her and her child safe…and clear the farm of danger before Christmas.
Northern Border Patrol: Keeping the US-Canadian border safe..
Good book. Tyler is a DEA agent and is determined to figure out who is smuggling drugs using the tree farm as a cover and stop them. Problem is, Heather and her son have recently moved onto the farm after her brother died. Tyler has to tell Heather that her brother was helping him with the investigation and was murdered because of it. Now he has vowed to keep Heather and her son safe and it is a good thing since there seem to be a lot of 'accidents' happening.
I felt so sorry for Heather at the start of the book. She had lost her only brother to what she believed was suicide. Then found out it wasn't suicide but that he was murdered. It was just heartbreaking. I did like how she and Tyler met though. That made me laugh. Her little boy was adorable and I loved getting to know him. Tyler's friends/colleagues were interesting and I'm looking forward to learning more about them hopefully in future books. The story was good, the characters well developed and believable. Overall it was a good book.
This was a 4/5 for me. I really enjoyed the book and it is a good, quick read.
