A simple trip home for the holidays is all former FBI profiler Maggie Mason wants. But a serial killer has other plans. Trapped in a deadly game of cat and mouse, Maggie finds an ally in Lost, Inc. with private investigator Dr. Ian Crane. The handsome widower is reluctant to love again, and the last thing Maggie wants is to put Ian in the line of fire, too. Love could cost them everything…unless they can find their way to each other, in time for Christmas.
What a deliciously sinister way to countdown to Christmas. This suspense is a totally gripping page turner. I kept nervously looking over my shoulder as I read. Brilliant, spine-chilling plot! But that's not all that makes this a stellar read. I loved the way Hinze developed the romantic relationship between Maggie and Ian. It felt like we had all the time in the world to become immersed in their story. Not quite sure how the author managed to achieve that given the shorter word count in a Love Inspired Suspense but I'm glad she did. And she delivers one of the most amazing kissing scenes that I've read (and I've read a lot of them!) If goosebumps aren't tracking up your spine from the suspense they will be from the romance!
