Under other circumstances, FBI agent Samantha Bennett might welcome a bit of backup—but not from an overprotective Mountie. She's been on the trail of a serial killer for six months and no one has ever taken the case seriously…until now. When Royal Canadian Mounted Police inspector Drew Kelley saves her life, he decides that the hunt for "Birdman" is his problem, too. Together they begin a cross-continent chase to stop the madman before he strikes again. However, Samantha fears her growing feelings for the lawman may weaken her focus, or worse—put Drew directly in the killer's sights…
Northern Border Patrol: Keeping the U.S.–Canadian border safe
I completely enjoyed this book. Sami is an FBI agent on a mission. The mission that Canadian Mounted Police Inspector Drew Kelley interrupts. Sami is upset with Drew in the beginning but then more information comes to light and she owes him her life. The serial killer she is chasing has set his sights on Sami and Drew is determined to keep her safe and help her solve the mystery before one or both of them wind up the next victim!
I really liked Sami! She is a tough, smart lady with serious nerve. She and Drew both have had bad relationships in the past so both of them have problems trusting. I love how Drew is a 'knight in shining armor' but still trusts that Sami will have his back. They are a great fit but neither of them jump into the romantic part of the relationship. They are partners, friends and it evolves quickly but it isn't an instant 'boom' they are together thing. The story is disturbing and realistic and the bad guy completely believable.
It was a 4/5 for me. I really love this author's writing.
