Following in her absentee father’s footsteps in a law enforcement career, U.S. Marshal Mercy Brennan has just recovered from being shot in the line of duty. And, unbeknownst to her, her father’s recent reappearance in her life has put her in the sights of St. Louis’s most powerful gang. Her boss assigns Deputy U.S. Marshal Mark St. Laurent–Mercy’s ex-boyfriend–to get her out of town until her safety can be guaranteed.
Unaware of the extent her boss and Mark have been keeping her in the dark, it isn’t until a freak ice storm strands them at a remote location and out of contact with the district office that the full severity of their situation becomes clear. As the storm worsens, the forces of nature combine with a deadly enemy to put them in great danger. Can they survive long enough for help to arrive–if help is even coming at all?
I have really enjoyed every book I have read by Nancy so I couldn’t wait to start this new series and was very excited to receive this newest book.
I have to say this is probably my favorite yet. I like that she wrote this book in third person (her others were in first) so we could get into the heads of several other characters.
I also loved the setting of the winter storm. It made me ready for a good snowstorm here in Michigan, but that probably isn’t happening anytime soon.
Mercy is a tough cookie, with some baggage she needs to deal with but doesn’t appear to think she really has any issues.
Mark is a great guy who loves the Lord and still cares for Mercy and wants to protect her.
I enjoyed the layers to this story and the many ways “the bad guys” work their way into the system and blackmail people to get what they want.
If you are looking for a good romantic suspense novel I have no doubt you will enjoy this one.
