What a great book! Couldn't put it down!
A good start to a new series!
This book has it all! Maddie and Gabe both have troubled pasts that they are trying to overcome when they meet. The romance and suspense keep building based on mutual attraction, false imprisonment, a shady spouse, drugs and gun running, and family discord. The mystery keeps you guessing and trying to solve it along with Maggie and Gabe. I couldn't put this down until I finished it!
