About the Book:
What Detective Brady St. John really needs is a relaxing vacation. Unfortunately, just as the sun is setting on his second day at a friend's cabin on Lake Henley, he hears a scream and races to rescue a woman from her would-be killer. When the killer escapes only to return to finish the job, Brady vows to utilize all of his many resources to keep her safe--and catch those who would see her dead.

Financial crimes investigator Emily Chastain doesn't trust many people. And even though she let the detective who saved her life in on a few pertinent facts about why she was being attacked, there are some things you just don't share with a stranger. Little does she suspect that the secret she is keeping just might get them both killed.

My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟    (5 stars)

I have fallen in love with siblings of the St. John family through the previous two books in this series and was excited to read this one and get to know Brady. He is on vacation at a cabin trying to relax when he hears a woman scream. He reacts and jumps into the water to help her, it quickly becomes obvious someone is trying to kill her. He sets out to protect her and try to figure out why someone wants her dead. It seemed like there was never a quiet moment for them, just as they escape one threat another threat appears. I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation to see if they will catch the villain or villains before Emily or Brady get hurt.

There are parts of the story given from the villain’s viewpoint but I could not figure out who was really calling the shots. While at times it was confusing trying to figure out how various characters tied together and who was really behind what was going on, everything was wrapped up and tied together by the end that all my questions were answered.

I enjoyed the interaction between Emily and Brady and was pleased with the way their relationship progressed. Emily was able to help Brady rediscover his relationship with God through her faith and actions. While Brady was able to help Emily deal with some of her insecurity and see that she was beautiful no matter what her size was. The St. John siblings added a wonderful addition to the story, not only did their banter lighten the mood at times but their support for one another helped solve the case. It was wonderful to reconnect with previous characters and get an update of what was going on with them. I especially enjoyed how Ms. Eason involved characters from Lynn Blackburn’s Dive Team Investigation series. 

I now (not so patiently) wait for the next book in the series to be released so I can spend more time with this family.
