Criminal psychologist Erin Larson's dreams of a successful career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her own life in a boating accident on Puget Sound and then learns that her mother tried to commit suicide. She leaves her job as a criminal psychologist to care for her mother in Montana. At least she is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on solving missing persons cold cases.
Nathan Campbell's father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin's help to solve the case. She's good at what she does. The only problem? She's his ex.
As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted--and that the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.
The race is on for the truth in this gripping and complex tale of suspense, intrigue, and murder from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard.
Goddard's second adventure in the Rocky Mountain Courage series (after Present Danger) sets off a heart-thumping race to solve a cold case. Erin Larson, a criminal psychologist and host of a cold case crime podcast is dealing with a series of disasters: a mysterious boating accident and her mother's suicide attempt (which her mother somehow doesn't remember). Nathan Campbell, a search and rescue climber and diver, returns with his estranged father to a childhood fishing spot where his dad, a homicide investigator, mentions he's investigating a cold case "on his own" but before he can say more, he's shot where they stand in the water. Nathan enlists Erin's help as he investigates the case that brought his father to Montana, and as danger comes closer and closer, they realize they're both targets of an organized crime ring, and revelations surface about a haunting event from Erin's past and her mother's secret life. Throughout the fast-paced plot, Erin and Nathan wrestle with their unresolved feelings for one another, deciding eventually to listen to their hearts and they also call upon God for help. Goddard increases the stakes and highlights the power of hope, faith, and trusting God in the darkest times in this rush of a series entry. Agent: Steve Laube, the Steve Laube Agency

DO NOT DISTURB!
This is a book where you need to block out the time to read it from start to finish, and put up a Do Not Disturb sign. It is THAT hang-onto-the-edge-of-your-seat, try-to-remember-to-keep-breathing GOOD! From the very beginning you have multiple dangers, unsolved cold case mysteries, flying bullets, MORE mysteries, MORE life-flashing-before-your-eyes dangers, AND Nathan and Erin’s romance. The romance that Erin nipped in the bud 5 years earlier...The romance that neither-OOPS! No Spoilers! To solve the mystery of the romance that got nixed and to get all of the details of the whys and wherefores, you will have to read the book! And this book is worth every suspense filled page turn! I can’t wait for the next book in the Rocky Mountain Courage series.
