At the advice of her therapist, homicide survivor Harper Reynolds has traded her job as a crime scene photographer for a more peaceful life taking photographs of the natural world. But her hopes for a life surrounded by the serenity of the outdoors are dashed when she inadvertently captures a murder being committed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She flees the scene in fear–and loses the camera.
Former Green Beret Heath McKade is a reserve deputy in an understaffed county who has been called in to protect Harper, a childhood friend he is surprised to see back in the area. When Harper learns that the sheriff’s department can’t find any evidence of the murder she witnessed, she is determined to do what she can to see that justice is done. What neither Harper nor Heath could know is how many explosive secrets from the past will be exposed–or how deeply they will fall for each other.
In this suspenseful page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps you on the edge of your seat as you discover that uncommon justice lies just on the other side of fear.
This book grabbed me in the first chapter with its introduction into this plot! Any time there is a murder in the first few pages of a book, you can bet I am sticking around to see where it’s headed. I felt like there was enough action sprinkled throughout this story to keep me guessing at what was coming next. I really loved that there were paragraphs here and there that were from the villains perspective, I felt like it allowed me to get a sense of what was motivating him and also prompted some guessing as to who was behind it all. Heath and Harper were both likable characters, but goodness that girl went through cameras like they were disposable! I enjoyed the relationship between Harper and her sister because I felt like it added another set of characters to focus on that was not strictly based around romance like Harper’s relationship with Heath. The villain popping up unexpectedly and the fact that he was watching them with a scope long distance really created a feeling of insecurity for the characters. You just never felt like they were safe. Several surprises and twists and turns kept me guessing until close to the conclusion of this book!
