Willow Anderson’s past collides with her present as she takes on one of her late grandfather’s unsolved cases. Now someone is out to harm her, and she needs to rely on her ex-boyfriend Austin McKade to keep her alive while they team up to solve a cold case of an abducted baby.
This novel definitely gives any suspense fan a thrilling ride. Plenty of action gives way to an intricate mystery to solve. But for romance fans, much of the story focuses on Willow and Austin’s relationship, especially Austin’s struggles to overcome his past. I liked Austin’s character development, as readers could see him come to terms with his broken family as he is forced to visit his hometown. I do wish there was a bit more focus on Willow’s job. She’s a forensic genealogist, and I could have used more details into her intriguing profession. It seemed that she was more of a detective rather than using skills as a genealogist to solve the crime. Overall this is a great romantic suspense novel with a nice balance between suspense and romance to keep me hooked to the end.
