New York Times bestselling author Christie Craig returns with her next heart-stopping romantic suspense about a woman on the run and the man eager to uncover her secrets -- for readers of Kat Martin, Rebecca Zanetti, and Mary Burton!
Police detective Juan Acosta doesn't only carry scars on the outside. He's filled with guilt and anger ever since his undercover job led to the murder of those he loved the most. Now he's living for one thing: revenge. That is, until Juan meets his beautiful new neighbor.
Vicki Holloway prides herself on being capable and independent, but her life is turned upside down when her sister Sara is killed by an abusive ex. Fearing for the safety of her niece, Vicki and the little girl go into hiding...resurfacing in Texas with new identities.
Juan finds his once-frozen heart thawing around Vicki, but he knows she's hiding something. Juan needs answers, but Vicki isn't talking. She has to keep her secrets if she wants to keep Bell safe, which means resisting her growing feelings for the sexy, scarred man next door. But when Juan's quest for justice brings danger to her door, divulging the truth might be the only thing that keeps her alive.
Includes the bonus novella Hot Target by April Hunt!
Craig's warmhearted second romantic thriller set in Anniston, Tex. (Don't Close Your Eyes) again features two engrossing investigations: one involving cold case detective Juan Acosta tracking down a long-missing young mother, and the other related to uncovering the truth about Vicki Trevor, Juan's new neighbor. Juan withdrew from the world after his pregnant wife was murdered while he was working undercover, preferring to track down his leads via computer. But he can't avoid his new neighbor, Vicki Trevor, or her daughter, Bell, as his tiny dog keeps sneaking into their yard. Almost immediately, Juan senses Vicki isn't being honest about her history, but Vicki keeps secrets for her safety: she's hiding from her deceased sister's murderous ex-husband, who's a cop. Texas is her second stop after leaving California, and as people she's close to start turning up dead, she wonders how much further she'll have to run. Craig's tender development of Juan and Bell's relationship is particularly moving. Series fans will enjoy this continuation.

GREAT GREAT GREAT MYSTERY!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Kept me on the edge of my seat! Twists and turns, with characters that made the story more intense, this is a must read! New author to me—Christie Craig. Of now, I am a new fan!
I will be buying all in this series, past and future! Also, will probably buy anything that she writes...because, there was intrigue and suspense in this story. 🐰🐰🐰
The second installment of the Texas Justice Series was even better than the first. Detective Juan Acosta is suspicious of his new neighbor as much as he’s drawn to her. Nicki is running scared and a police detective is the last person she’d confide in. I found myself sucked into this story from page one. Great characters with lots of mystery, action, and romance. You’ll be on the edge of your seat till the very end!
Love Christie Craig!
This is the second entry in the Texas Justice series and it was just as well written and engaging as the first. This is my favorite of the series so far. I thought that Juan and "Vicki" were amazing together. I'm glad that Juan's story was next since he seemingly had the most heartache of the three cold-case detectives, but I can't wait to see where the series takes us in the future. Great author, and great series!
