High-Caliber Holiday

GIVEAWAY

SLEEMAN, SUSAN
HIGH-CALIBER HOLIDAY

Caught in the crosshairs

Held hostage on a train, ex-lawyer Morgan Thorsby finds her powers of persuasion failing her for the first time. Former marine sniper Brady Owens is her only hope—but his split-second hesitation on the trigger leaves her wounded. Yet when an obsessed stalker threatens Morgan, Brady steps up. Protecting someone so tough and beautiful is hardly a chore, but Brady pulls back every time they get close. Morgan isn't ready for the connection forming between them, either, but she knows she needs his help. Can Brady capture the culprit in time for Christmas?

First Responders: Brave men and women alert and ready for danger and love.


My Review:

There's something so spine-chilling about a stalker story. Shades of sinister with plenty of twists and turns and a few surprises along the way. And plenty of potential villains to choose from. Sometimes I was ahead of the game and desperately tried to get Morgan and Brady to listen to me, but in true hero/heroine fashion they paid this reader no mind. Other times I was just as shocked as they were when something went awry. Sleeman balances romance and suspense beautifully along with a dash of Christmas cheer.

This is the third book in the First Responders series -- I read the first book, but somehow missed the second one. I'll definitely be correcting that oversight! Each book works well as an independent read but what I love about the series is the way the author has created a memorable First Responding team. Love the care and teasing amongst them all. It will be a thrill to read each of their stories as the series progresses.

  7. Been trying to get a hold of Susan Sleeman's books because she sounds like a great author! It's amazing to me that among my 200 or so LI titles on my shelf, I have nary a one of hers! Baffling & one I hope to correct very soon :-)
    That being said, another chilling stalker story would be just the ticket (train that is) to get my heart racing and kept up late :-) Don't you just love stories like that....if you don't have nightmares about it though....haha!
