Abigail Mayfield hopes her stalker won't follow her to Texas -- until someone breaks into her new home, leaving behind a photo of her late parents with a mysterious child. This time, with her guard dog at her side, the widowed music teacher refuses to hide. She can't uncover why someone is after her by herself, though, not when the threat escalates from break-ins to attempts on her life. After saving her from a sniper's bullet, FBI agent turned small-town sheriff Noah Galloway makes Abigail's safety his personal mission. With the investigation taking them cross-country on the trail of her long-dead parents, the widowed single father can't risk leaving his son an orphan. But Abigail needs him...because somewhere, buried deep in her past, lies a secret worth killing for.
Goodness, but the mysteries have mysteries in this multi-layered romantic suspense. Hard to believe that this is Liz Shoaf''s debut with Love Inspired! And not only that but she trains dogs so, of course, we have a canine hero in this story. (And we all know how enamored I am over dogs!) So meet Bates, Belgian Malinois extraordinaire. Protection is his specialty but furry hugs and warm, wet kisses run a close second.
And yes, even though I was fangirling all over that noble furry beast, I did happen to notice a certain tenacious ex-FBI/current sheriff with a protective streak of his own. Dedicated and passionate about his work, he is not about to let anything happen to his 'steel magnolia'. Be still my heart -- a man who likes a woman with a feisty streak. Fireworks mingle with gunshots as sparks fly off the pages in this riveting suspense.
