New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers returns to her popular Sharpe & Donovan series with this absorbing tale of suspense, romance and fast-paced action.
Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan, two of the FBI's most valuable agents, are preparing for their next big assignment—their wedding—when Colin's brother Mike alerts them that onetime friends from his military past are on Sharpe and Donovan home turf on the Maine coast. Now private security contractors, they want to meet with Mike. One of them, an FBI agent named Kavanagh, is supposed to be on leave. What is he investigating—or does he have his own agenda?
Mike zeroes in on Naomi MacBride, a freelance civilian intelligence analyst who, aside from a few hot nights, has never brought him anything but trouble. Newly returned from England, Naomi clearly isn't telling Mike everything about why she's snooping around his home town, but he has no choice but to work with her if he wants to uncover what's really going on.
But the case soon takes a drastic turn—Emma is targeted, and a connection surfaces between Naomi and Kavanagh and a recently solved international art theft case. Not every connection is a conspiracy, but as the tangled web of secrets unravels, Emma and Colin face their greatest danger yet. With everyone they know involved, they must decide who they can trust…or lose everything for good.
In bestseller Neggers's engaging fifth Sharpe and Donovan novel (after 2014's Harbor Island), FBI agent and former nun Emma Sharpe is looking forward to a weekend retreat at the Sisters of the Joyful Heart, the convent in Heron's Cove, Maine, where she lived before her engagement to fellow FBI agent Colin Donovan. But when Emma arrives at the convent, she tells a sister she knows that she's going to stay at Colin's house in nearby Rock Point instead. When Emma fails to arrive at Colin's and doesn't answer any of his calls, Colin becomes very concerned. Meanwhile, private security contractors the former military colleagues of Mike Donovan, Colin's brother appear in the same part of coastal Maine. Among them is Naomi MacBride, Mike's ex-lover, who happens to arrive from an English village inhabited by an art thief Emma was tracking. Together, Mike and Colin seek to unravel the truth behind these apparent coincidences and rescue Emma. Fans of romantic suspense will find plenty to like.
