Special Agent Meghan Connors’ next assignment is the VP’s daughter, Lindsey. If she can get this job right, she may have a chance at the VP’s protection detail or even the President’s. She will not fail at protecting Lindsey from herself and from those who want her dead. However, Special Agent In-Charge Ash Zinders doesn’t believe women make good agents. Can Meghan and Ash get over their differences and find out who is trying to threaten and kill Lindsey? Lindsey is a wild child – she has been in and out of rehab for alcohol and drug abuse. She is taken to a Texas ranch to recover from a suicide attempt and be protected from those trying to kill her. Due to dealing with her sister’s past in rehab, Meghan is well-equipped to find a way to help Lindsey stay clean and hope for a new life. Ash must also find a way to work with the beautiful and capable Meghan who is quickly worming her way into his heart. Lindsey doesn’t know who she can trust with her secret but something must be done or more lives will be lost. Will she have the courage to face her fears?
I loved reading about the Secret Service and how everything usually works since I don’t usually read many books regarding them. I loved being inside the agents’ heads and imagining how they think and speak and feel. The characters are very relatable and the reader empathizes with Ash, Meghan, and Lindsey. The suspense was just right and the writing was well done.
The reason I gave a 4 instead of a 5 is because I felt the story dragged in the middle and I kept hoping they would wrap the story up soon. The hope of salvation is not as seamlessly woven into the plot as I’d like but it is clear and the characters do grow.
All in all I would definitely recommend this book, especially to those who like a good government mystery romance.
I received this book for free from NetGalley.com and Tyndale but I was not required to write a positive review.
