Why Is Someone Trying To Kill Me?
Six days in the Sonoran desert...six days without food...with barely any water...six days since Skylar Grady's been left for dead with no idea who even wanted her that way.
This was supposed to be such a simple assignment. Just locate the deadbeat dad so the authorities could have him arrested and brought to justice. She hadn't even found him, yet here she is, pretty sure she's only hours away from certain death.
If anyone else had asked Jonas Sampson to track someone lost in the desert (and believe me, they had) he never would have done it. But his old college friend Kane Dougherty was someone he'd do almost anything for--especially since Cane assured him that this woman was too stubborn to die. Now that he's found her, getting her home safely is going to be a whole other battle--both because of the dozen or more men tracking her with an intent to kill, and because she fight's him almost every step of the way.
This is the best Love inspired Suspense book I've read in a long time. Shirley McCoy doesn't waste any time getting to the meat of the story. The action begins with the first sentence, and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat til the very end. The characters are real. They draw you in till you feel yourself longing to see their hopes and dreams fulfilled, and cheering them on every step of the way. There is really a lot of punch in this little book. It is a great value, and worth every one of the 5 stars I'm giving it.
