A cowboy to her rescue…but she’s not who he thinks she is.

Will their tenuous partnership be enough to shield her when the killer closes in?

My Review

In the midst of a small-town Christmas celebration, twin sisters fear for their lives.

Author Dana Mentink has again penned a suspense-filled novel that will keep you looking over your shoulder when you're not turning pages.

Stolen jewels.  Mistaken identities.  Car chases.  A handsome cowboy.  This book has it all, and more.  Suspense readers will love it for the action, and romance readers will cheer for the couple to bravely move forward and develop a relationship.

I really appreciated the theme of loyalty to family that was pervasive throughout the book.  Maggie would do anything to protect her twin sister.  Liam had been the protector of his sister since he was seven years old.  His brothers always had his back as he worked to thwart the plans of the bad guys and protect the sisters.

The Love Inspired line is great for exciting stories with well-developed characters in a quick read.

I received a copy of this book from the author through Celebrate Lit for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

More from Dana

I just love Christmas, don’t you? In our area we have a lovely holiday train. It’s an old steam type train which is decked out in lights for festive holiday tours. I was so thrilled that this cover features just such a train. Of course, in the novel the train is the scene of hair raising danger! Maggie, our heroine in this novel, is a cook. She serves up some mouth watering dishes (when she’s not dodging a killer.) I thought perhaps you might enjoy a Mentink holiday family recipe! God bless you as we enter this holiday season!
