Pat's Review:

Taylor Lawson is on a getaway arranged by her best friend. She has lost her Mom, and feels adrift. The week in Sutter Lake with her friends who are like family made her realize she longed for the peace and quiet of this lovely small town. Her friends don’t want to leave her, but she wants time to herself.

She quickly finds the perfect job at a local tea house, and just as luckily finds a home as well. Jensen, her boss, has family that owns a cottage they are willing to rent. Things are falling into place.

Walker Cole, Jensen’s brother, is a local police officer, and lives in his own home on his family’s ranch. He suffered a tragic loss years ago, when his girlfriend disappeared, and days later her body was found. No one was ever arrested for the crime, and it is his major reason for becoming a cop. Since his family has taken Taylor under their wing, they see each other frequently, and their attraction starts heating up. Walker and Taylor both have strong personalities, and the more protective Walker tries to be, the more she pushes him away. After a very frightening encounter on a hike, all her walls fall and she lets Walker in.

Hikers are disappearing, the town is on edge and underlying danger seems to be everywhere. The suspense is riveting and will keep you holding your breath.

This is a contemporary romance, with suspense and amazing heat. While writing my review I ended up reading it a second time!  This first in a series is a must read!
