Danger at the Border by Terri Reed

Book Description:


When a mysterious toxin threatens lives and livelihoods near the border between the U.S. and Canada, Dr. Tessa Cleary is called to trace the source. But when the no-nonsense doctor is forced to work with border patrol agent Jeff Steele, she finds the lone wolf's dedication to his job—and country—chipping away at the walls around her heart. Just as Tessa and Jeff are about to uncover the toxin's deadly source, armed thugs kidnap them in the forest. Now they must trust each other to survive before time runs out for everyone. 

Northern Border Patrol: Keeping the U.S.–Canadian border safe

My Thoughts:
This one was pretty good.  Dr. Tessa is called in to find the source of water contamination in a lake up on the US/Canada border.  Jeff Steele is a border patrol agent and is determined to stick with Tessa during her investigation.  When they get close to the source of the toxin, they get pulled into a mess that no one expected even existed.  Though each have been hurt in the past, Tessa and Jeff feel a pull toward each other that makes them each think the other just might be trustworthy.
I liked Tessa and Jeff.  I thought his protective streak was great and understood why it endeared him to her.  I also liked that both of them were determined to not let the attraction go anywhere.  When they were in danger, both looked out for the other.  The bad guys were twisted and creepy.  Overall, the couple trusted each other and God to get them out of the mess they were in and nothing happened like expected but happened in His time.
This is a 4/5 for me.  It was a good romance with some suspense.
