Standoff by Patricia Bradley

Standoff (Natchez Trace Park Rangers #1)Book Description:
The Natchez Trace National Parkway stretches 444 miles from Nashville to Natchez, the oldest town on the Mississippi River. It's the perfect road for a relaxed pleasure drive. Unfortunately for Luke Fereday, it's also perfect for moving drugs.

Sent to Natchez to infiltrate the organization at the center of the drug ring, Luke arrives too late to a stakeout and discovers the body of his friend, park ranger John Danvers. John's daughter Brooke is determined to investigate her father's murder but soon finds herself the target of a killer who will do anything to silence her.

Luke will have his hands full keeping her safe. But who's going to keep him safe when he realizes he's falling – hard – for the daughter of the man he failed to save?

My Thoughts:
Loved this book from start to finish.  Brooke absolutely doesn't believe her father's death was a suicide.  In fact, she is going to prove that it wasn't.  Luke is an old love interest, and also undercover.  This book has a lot going on and the author does a wonderful job of keeping it balanced.  Romance, suspense, twists, and turns are all there and keep you glued to the page.
I loved the setting of the story.  The author did a wonderful job of making you feel the surroundings (think hot and humid).  The chemistry between Brooke and Luke was great.  The fact that I was not certain who the bad guy was, even though I had plenty of suspects and the author provided hints here and there.  I was still surprised.  It was great and I can't wait to read the next in the series.  
Absolutely a 5/5.

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
