Back Cover Blurb:

You can run from the past, but you can’t hide...

Tough as nails, no nonsense San Francisco reporter Grace Hanover will do anything to cover the story of the decade—and her career. Having survived a painful past, she’s learned never to let anything stand in her way. Even if it means following a key witness into the Alaskan wilderness, and partnering with Travis Barnett, a former Navy SEAL turned PI who’s working for the Feds, and who would love to bring in Grace’s witness before she can get her story. But together in the wilderness, they’ll each have to put aside their differences and trust one another if they want to survive.

Because someone from Grace’s past is watching, waiting for just the right moment. Every step Grace takes draws her deeper into the line of fire, and into the hands of a killer.

My Review:

Gallant blends suspense and intrigue together in a captivating manner that kept me guessing. I really enjoyed how she weaved the release of information tidbits to the reader, sometimes in advance of the characters knowing them, allowing me to try and puzzle out what would happen next, and at other times I found out alongside the characters, making me feel as if I were part of the story. Gallant weaves her tale in such a manner that it can be read as a standalone or as part of the series, both filling in the blanks for new readers and not summarizing too much for returning ones.

Gallant’s characters were simultaneously enigmatic and straightforward. No one was ever quite who they seemed when we first met them, but at the same time, they were genuinely real people. They were also characters that I enjoyed getting to know. The romance and chemistry between the main characters melds with the suspense of the story to create a feeling that you’re really part of their lives.

As a whole, this was a fast paced, suspenseful novel that kept me guessing throughout. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and tailing them through this intricate novel.
