The wrong target...
When Trinity Miller's attacked by a man who mistakenly believes she's Mason Gain's girlfriend, the reclusive prosthetic maker is forced from seclusion to rescue her. And he soon learns someone's determined to get information on one of his clients -- information they're willing to kill for. Now the former army pilot has to find a way to take down the men on their trail...and make sure Trinity survives. When Trinity arrived at Mason's isolated home to convince him to help her friend's son, her plans didn't include going on the run with him. But Trinity must work with Mason to outwit their pursuers...or risk losing both their lives.
Mission: Rescue -- No job is too dangerous for these fearless heroes.
I can't tell you how much I love this series but I'm going to try. :-) This is the seventh book in the Mission Rescue series but no worries if you haven't read all of the other books -- Mistaken Identity reads beautifully as a standalone. Though there are some great character carryovers which were fun to spot.
McCoy knows how to balance her romance and suspense. Both get equal billing and naturally build as the taut plot threatens to spin out of control. Tension starts on page one when Trinity has that dreaded feeling that something isn't right. I wanted her to turn around and rethink her strategy. She's in a car, alone, at night on a deserted back road. Seriously, girly, come back in the light of day why don't you? Did she listen to me? She did not. And action explodes off the page as she's caught in the cross-hairs of some uber bad guys with nefarious goals...and capturing her is now one of them.
Mason is both exasperated and intrigued by Trinity...along with a healthy dose of attraction. But he's a recluse and likes his life just the way it is...well the way it was before his idyllic solitude turned into lethal chaos. Their pursuers are relentless with danger at every turn. Serious, page-turning stuff.
But there are bursts of humour to break the tension as well. Trinity's poor sense of direction had me chuckling at the most hair-raising moments. And the banter between her over-protective brothers who show up on the scene in major rescue mode is grin-inducing. Especially if you've met Chance and Jackson in earlier books like I have.
An enthralling romantic suspense that will leave you clamoring for more...so get busy backtracking on the other books in this incredible series. (I've just ordered Exit Strategy -- the only one I've missed so far. Can't wait for it to get here!)
