About the Book:

Detective James Cross has been honorably discharged from the Army Criminal Investigation Division due to wounds sustained when an IED blew up near him. Now with the Lake City Police Department, he's rooming with this good buddy and partner, Cole, while he figures out his family dynamics.

Physician Assistant Lainie Jackson is eighteen months out from an attempted murder perpetrated by her ex, which ended when she managed to grab the weapon and shoot him. When he appears to have survived and is back to finish the job he started, Lainie insists it's not possible. But someone keeps trying to kill her, and she keeps seeing his face.

Together, Lainie and James must work together to find out who, exactly, is after her and why he wants her dead. And failure is not an option.

My Rating & Thoughts:    

Is Lainie going crazy? Is Adam dead or alive? I was hooked on the mystery aspect of the story but it took me a while to connect with the characters. At first there seemed to be so many friends introduced I struggled with who was who. However I didn't let this bother me as I was invested in the mystery and trying to figure out who was after Laine and why. I was suspicious of so many people and rarely was I correct. I was shocked when the main reveal happened. Some of the side characters really interested me and I can't wait to see if we get to know them in more in books to come. I do wish faith had been discussed a bit more between the characters, it was very lightly mentioned. 

Favourite Quotes: 
“You can't face what you have to face if you don't get yourself prayed up.”

(I received an ARC of this book from Revell through NetGalley; opinions expressed 
in this review are my honest opinion and completely my own.)
