When a woman drags Blake Harrison out of his wrecked car, he knows the mysterious stranger has saved his life. But more shocking than the hit-and-run is the news that a crime cartel has infiltrated his factory. There's a fortune to be made by tampering with the factory's products…but only if Blake is out of the way. Undercover FBI agent Heidi Zimmerman has two goals—catch the criminals in the act, and keep Blake alive. Falling for the single dad and his adorable daughter isn't in the plan. But everything changes when an abduction leaves Heidi face-to-face with a killer, revealing the danger that's been hiding in plain sight all along…
Wow -- my head's still spinning. What an incredible debut novel. Really unique opening. Loved the role reversal with Heidi being the professional and all about the protection detail. And the suspense? Oy, I couldn't figure it out. But I didn't feel so bad because neither could Heidi and Blake. I mean we know it involves a crime cartel but we don't know what they're up to...or why. And the author plays her cards close to her chest right to the very end. Heidi and her team kept looking for motive and I kept offering them suggestions but they ignored me (which is just as well since I was wrong, wrong, wrong!) And that's not the only suspense in this book. Heidi is quite the mystery herself. Her story is revealed by slow degrees and that kept me riveted trying to put the pieces of her puzzle together. Brilliantly done.
