Kate O’Brien’s quiet life in small-town Shelter Cove, Arkansas is shaken when her past suddenly comes roaring back to life. Four years ago, she and her twin sister were attacked by an elusive serial killer. Only Kate survived, and she’s been in witness protection ever since.

When new evidence arises to suggest the convicted man wasn’t the murderer, she’s subpoenaed to testify in the new trial. Afraid to go back into that world, Kate only agrees if Tony DeLuca, the deputy Marshal who protected her during the original trial, escorts her to St. Louis.

Tony readily takes on the assignment; Kate’s beauty and inner strength made more of an impression on him than he expected. But when Kate’s safety is threatened, Tony must race against the clock to keep her alive and put this ugly case to rest before anyone else gets killed.

My thoughts and giveaway:

I can’t remember the last time I read a book so fast. I could have finished it in twenty-four hours but I needed to go to sleep.

I loved this book. One thing after another happens and just when you think it is over it isn’t. My mind kept trying to figure out what was going on. I was wrong on several things but one I had a feeling about the whole time but even that I didn’t get the motivation correct.

Kate’s story is heartbreaking, witnessing her sister being murdered. She really struggles to deal with this and it isn’t until she finally gives it to Jesus that true healing can begin. The way Nancy describes that process is beautiful.

Tony is a wonderful hero who just wants to protect Kate. There romance is very sweet and adds nicely to the story.

Overall, I highly recommend this one. I think it might be favorite Nancy Mehl book yet.
